A Reality

.

“Life is not

a problem

to be solved,

but a reality

to be experienced.”

.

~ Soren Kierkegaard

.

What’s the problem ???,

afraid of uncertainty, fear the change,

guess what ???,

that’s reality.

Today, minimize the angst, lower the stress,

reduce the number of headaches and “accept”

God’s world as being exactly as He wishes it to be,

ever-changing, beyond our scope of comprehension,

and a journey to be enjoyed.

Recovery is to enjoy the reality.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Give Your Most

.

“We make a living

by what we get.

We make a life

by what we give.”

.

~ Winston Churchill

.

No one is defined by what they do for a living,

what creates character is how one gives back to this world.

We cannot demand respect, we must earn it

and the best return on investment is to give

without expectation of a reward.

Today, do your job well but keep

your heart and soul focused on living life,

always trying to do the next right thing.

Recovery is giving your most.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

One At A Time

008

.

.

“Our way to practice is

one step at a time,

one breath at a time.”

.

~ Shunryu Suzuki

.

.

Body, mind and soul,

life is to have all of oneself

at the same place at the same time.

Practice living,

be aware of one breath at a time,

know one step at a time.

Today, have faith that the Spirit of the Uni-verse

goes with you, one breath and one step at a time.

Today, one day at a time.

Recovery is one step 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.

To Your Soul

007

.

“Live a life

as a monument

to your soul.”

.

~ Ayn Rand

.

.

As a drunk I did no live my life.

Alcohol told me where to go, when to go

and whom I was to go with.

My disease wants me to isolate, be alone,

push away anyone who loves me

and to kill myself.

AA  has given me a new life, a life of purpose,

a life that I want to share with others.

Today, get a life, don’t drink, don’t think, go to a meeting

and be the person your Higher Power wants you to be,

a person with a soul that knows life and love.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

Better Than A Dream

019

.

“You know

you’re in love

when you can’t

fall asleep

because reality

is finally better

than your dreams.”

.

~ Dr. Seuss

.

From the nightmare of active alcoholism to

a release from the obsession and compulsion,

life has become for those that have a program of  recovery

a life that is beyond our wildest dreams.

Reality becomes a state of mind that is wholly grasped

and enjoyed because all of its components are positive.

Unconditional love and faith become the bedrock

of a spiritual life that is better than any dream.

Today, don’t drink, don’t think and enjoy the dreams.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

The Daily Discipline

.

“The daily discipline

of prayer and meditation

will keep me in fit

spiritual condition,

able to face whatever

the day brings –

without the thought of a drink.”

.

Daily Reflections,  p. 317

.

What a wonderful way to begin the day,

instead of  waking up under that cloud of alcoholic smog

and worrying about when and where

I would get my next drink,

I now awaken to a routine that puts me

in closer contact to my Higher Power,

a daily discipline that brings sunshine into my life.

Today, be happy, joyous and free,

pray for guidance from the God of your understanding

and meditate, listen for His advice,

which is always to do the next right thing.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

The Practice Of Prayer

.

“As the practice

of prayer continues,

I will find I don’t

need words,

for God can, and does,

hear my thoughts

through silence.”

.

Daily Reflections, p.322

.

Every thought is a prayer.

Silence is God’s opportunity to talk.

One of the benefits of sobriety

and of working the Twelve Steps of A. A.

is a discipline that allows one to practice

those things that improve one’s life.

Today, know that there is no right way to pray

and it is only by practice that you may discover

a way of praying that will be just right for you.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.
