To Harmonize

.

“The world is not

to be put in order;

the world is order,

incarnate.

It is for us

to harmonize

with this order.”

.

~ Henry Miller

.

God has already placed your song within your soul,

listen closely and you will discover that it will harmonize

well with the Song of the Uni-verse.

Today, do not get out of order, know that the lyrics

are always the same, kindness and forgiveness for all,

and that the world order of the muse is love.

Recovery is to harmonize with the order of the world.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Expectation Addicts

.

.

“A prayer for expectation addicts:

‘Show up. Shine. Let it go.’

Expectations shrink your shine

and weigh you down with

worry and equations.”

.

~ Danielle LaPorte

.

.

What did you really expect ? ? ?

Today, you can sit back and wait ,

knowing that eventually the train

will come down the track and run you over

or you can lay a new set of tracks that will move you

toward peace of mind and serenity.

Today, let a loving Higher Power lead you towards

a station filled with kindness, hope and forgiveness.

Today, share the shine, be the conductor

with no expectations.

Recovery is to show up, shine and let it go.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

We Have The Key

005

.

“So often time

it happens,

we all live

our life in chains,

and we never even know

we have the key.”

.

~ The Eagles

.

Fear, anger, hate, pride, jealousy;

some of the many links in the chain

that prevents us from living a life

that is happy, joyous and free.

Love, kindness, patience, tolerance, forgiveness,

we all possess the master keys that can open any heart.

Today, ask a friend, ask your Higher Power

to show you how to use the many keys that

the Great Creator has given unto us all.

Recovery is finding the key to serenity and peace of mind.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

And, if no one has told you yet today,

God loves you and so do we.

Practice

” I don’t think

we can do anything

very well in this world

unless we practice it,

And I don’t believe

we do A.A. too well

unless we practice it . . .”

.

Dr. Bob And The Good Oldtimers, p 307

.

Practice makes perfect,

in all aspects of our lives.

Practice, kindness, tolerance, patience, forgiveness,

compassion and know that your life will become

better than you could ever dream.

Breaking bad habits and learning new habits

is a effort that usually requires a lot of practice.

Changing your whole attitude and outlook on life

definitely requires a lot of your sweat and tears

and is usually more easily accomplished

with the help of a few hundred friends.

Today, immerse yourself into your program of A. A.

and learn to do life well.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

For My Own Sake

lania flowers August 003

.

“I must forgive injuries,

not just in words,

or as a matter of form,

but in my heart.

I do this not for the

other persons’ sake,

but for my own sake.”

.

Daily Reflections p 88

.

There is no honor among thieves.

As a drunk I did many morally questionable things,

and those I harmed would seek retribution

or seek to take advantage of the inebriated sot.

I earned every injury that was inflicted on me,

done by myself or others.

Forgiveness earned by honestly working the steps

has renewed my soul.

Today, learn to forgive and do so

for yourself as well as others.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.
