Sure, you can "yeah... but..." this; however (see what I did there? clever! sneaky!) for many alcoholics -- certainly for me -- the "supposed to be" part is rarely about world peace or ending hunger, and rather often about getting "what I deserve!" (without working for it) or being recognized as "special" (without achieving anything). If I believe in a Higher Power -- and today I do -- then life, that is, my life -- is exactly the way it is supposed to be already, and the picture I have in my head which is screwing me up is one which not only consists of getting something for nothing, but is ultimately not about me finding/experiencing my greatest Good. So rather than live in my head, I'm better served by living in the moment. Embracing the "be here now" and "grow where you're planted" philosophies. And if I really want to stay out of my head, then I throw myself the harder into service -- because service is about the heart, not the head.
