The Secret

.

“The secret of the true life

is to remain still

in the midst of activity

and vibrantly awake

while in meditation.

.

~ Dada Vaswani

.

Feeding into the chaos is a false life.

Placating the wishes and wants of others is a false life.

Placing great expectations on people

and God’s world is a false life.

The true life is to see both sides of the coin,

to understand the ebb and flow,

to know the yin and yang of the Great Creator.

Today, seek your balance.

Recovery is to know when to turn off and when to tune in.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

That’s God’s Will For Me

.

“Acceptance is the key to my

relationship with God today.

I never just sit and do nothing

while waiting for Him to

tell me what to do.

Rather, I do whatever is in front

of me to be done, and I leave the results

up to Him, however it turns out,

that’s God’s will for me.”

.

BB,   p. 452   3rd ed.

.

God will give you the chance to be drunk or sober,

the choice is yours.

Tavern or meeting, hoodlums or saints, money or charity,

God will give you the chance, the people, places and things

that you can choose to define your life,

the choice is yours.

God will give you the chance to live in chaos or peace,

the choice is yours.

Today, accept Gods chances to do the next right thing,

those things that will make this world a better place

for you having been here.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

.

ME and the Boss

.

And, if no one has told you yet today,

God loves you and so do we.

Dysfunction

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A doctor said to us,

” Years of living with

an alcoholic is almost

sure to make any wife

or child neurotic.

The entire family is,

to some extent, ill.”

My family put the FUN in “dys FUN ction.”

My disease is selfish, self-centered, arrogant,

grandiose and all about me. (the victim)

My recovery is about all of those that I hurt while

I was under the influence of the disease.

Working the AA Steps with a sponsor was

the beginning of a life that was to clear the

wreckage of the past and to live a life

that tried to avoid chaos.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

And, if no one has told you yet today,

God loves you and so do we.

Day 27

“When you read and understand a poem,
comprehending its rich and formal meanings,
then you master chaos a little.” ~ Stephen Spender

Poem

There are those who cannot live without chaos
A life of peace and serenity they cannot master

Empathize, commensurate, bring on the pathos
Just smile, pray and try to avoid the disaster

.

Love, hugs and prayers…ME and the Boss
