The Brave Can Forgive

.

.

“If you want

to see the brave,

look at those

who can forgive”.

.

~   Bhagavad-Gita

.

.

Forgive once, but do not forget.

Be brave, but do not be the martyr.

When it hurts, do no try to change them,

change yourself.

Today, choose better friends, go to nicer places

and elect to do only the next right thing.

If it is family that needs forgiving,

seek the compromise.

Recovery is to be brave and learn to forgive.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

What Is The Answer

.

It’s better

to know some

of the questions

than to know all

of the answers.

.

~ James Thurber

.

If you know all of the answers

that means you have yet to ask the right question.

Today, understand that God is the only one who knows

all of the answers,

and He will give you the answers you need,

in His time,

and only when you are ready to know the truth.

Today, the most important question will be,

“May I help you ???”

Recovery is to know some of the questions.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Re-born

.

“A single event

can awaken within us

a stranger totally

unknown to us.

To live is to be

slowly born.”

.

~ Antoine de Saint Exupery

.

We are not the same person today

that we were yesterday.

The Uni-verse is change, and we

have the opportunity to discover something new

each and every moment, asleep or awake.

Today, dreams or reality, do not hesitate

to embrace the new you.

Recovery is to be slowly re-born.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

“O God! O God!”

.

“As long as someone

cries out

“O God! O God!”

be sure that he

has not found God,

for whoever has found Him

becomes still.”

.

~ Sri Ramakrishna Paramahansa

.

The Spirit of the Uni-verse dwells within you.

Today, no fox hole prayers, no pleas to be saved,

just prayers to be given the strength and courage

to save yourself.

Today, become still, know that the Great Creator

springs from the silence that was before all.

Recovery is to find the God of your understanding.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher power.

The First Step

.

“Take that first step.

Bravely overcoming

one small fear

gives you the courage

to take on the next.”

.

~ Daisaku Ikeda

.

Every new day begins a new journey.

Today, begin by having the faith to believe

that a loving Higher Power will give you

the courage to push forward, to do His will,

to be the person He wants you to be.

Kindness, love, patience, tolerance, and forgiveness

are not steps to be feared, they are the path to

a life that is happy, joyous and free

Recovery is a journey that begins with the first small step.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

The Best Time

.

“In the long run,

the pessimist may

be proven right,

but the optimist has

a better time

on the trip.”

.

~ Daniel Reardon

.

The pessimist worries about

what he cannot see coming down the road

the optimist enjoys the scenery he sees

on today’s adventure.

Today, enjoy the grace of a Great Creator,

have no fear, have faith, enjoy the ride.

If you don’t enjoy the mean people, evil places or ugly things,

that are in your way, change the road you are on,

ask God for guidance.

Recovery is to enjoy the trip.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

The Signal For Rebirth

.

.

“Change is the constant,

the signal for rebirth,

the egg of the Phoenix.”

.

~  Christina Baldwin

.

.

.

From ashes to ashes, and dust to dust,

the cycle of the Great Creator is never complete.

From out of the ashes the Phoenix is reborn

and change is the rebirth of those who accept

that the progression of time must go on, that we

must stay in sync with the rhythm of the Uni-verse.

Today, accept the cycle of the universal change.

Recovery is change, the signal for rebirth.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
