The Great Weaver

.

.

“In Silence

there is eloquence.

Stop weaving and see

how the pattern improves.”

.

~ Rumi

.

.

We become so busy living our lives

that often the pattern becomes obscured,

disappears in the lint and dust of the too busy loom.

Today, seek the silence,meditate,

step back and observe the pattern of your life,

have gratitude for the good

and be ready to change if you must.

Today, understand that with the guidance of your Higher Power,

the Great Weaver, you can create a pattern

that is happy, joyous and free.

Recovery is to see the pattern of your life improve.

Sobriety is a blessing form a Higher Power.

Your Infinite Worth

.

“You alone

are the judge

of your worth,

and your goal

is to discover the

infinite worth in yourself,

no matter what anyone else thinks.”

.

~ Deepak Chopra

.

It never is between you and them,

it is, has been and always will be

just between you and your Higher Power.

The Great Creator made you perfectly capable

of doing His will, the choice to do so is yours.

Today, pray, meditate;

seek the Spirit that is within you

and just do the next right thing, love this world

as being exactly the way God wants it to be.

Recovery is to discover the infinite worth in yourself.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Into The Sun

.

“But first of all

we shall want sunlight;

nothing much can grow

in the dark.

Meditation is our step

out into the sun.”

.

As Bill Sees It p 10

.

Even on the cloudiest, gloomiest of days

a quick pause to meditate brings sunshine into my life.

The dark is where the disease of alcoholism kept me

with it’s lies, distortions, alibies, denial and a litany

of subversive thoughts and behaviors that made

the obsession and compulsion the ruler of my life.

Today, keep it simple, be honest

and when you are not sure what honest is

meditate and have faith that your Higher Power

will bring out the  sun.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

Start and Continue

.

“My first sponsor

told me there were

two things to say

about prayer

and meditation:

first, I had to start

and second,

I had to continue.”

.

Daily Reflections,   p. 314

.

The way to recovery is change and one thing

that I needed to change was my way of praying.

No more fox hole prayers, just positive thoughts

about doing the next right thing.

The next change was to continue to change,

to grow spiritually by being honest, open-minded

and willing to do what those who

had gone before me have suggested.

Today, do as suggested, pray, meditate,

start the change and continue to change.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

Quiet the Noisy Mind

.

“Whenever I find myself

under acute tension,

I lengthen my daily walks

and slowly repeat our

Serenity Prayer in rhythm

to my steps and breathing.”

.

As Bill Sees It p 250
Grapevine, March 1962

.

.

Serenity and peace of mind, two of the more

rewarding virtues received by staying sober.

Just as every soul has their own concept of a Higher Power,

everyone has their own unique way of seeking the spiritual path.

Recovery is  body, mind and soul;

make sure your daily program gives time

to improve your whole person.

Today, quiet the noisy mind;

pray, meditate and walk slowly.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

For Our Lifetime

more 016

.

“We have entered

the world of the Spirit.

Our next function is

to grow in understanding

and effectiveness.

This is not an overnight matter.

It should continue for our lifetime.”

.

BB p 84

.

Once an alcoholic, always an alcoholic.

Following the Ninth Step promises the Big Book

introduces us to the living steps,

the three steps ( 10, 11 and 12 ) that we must work

for the rest of our lifetime.

As the world changes we must learn to change

and accept God’s world as being

just the way it is going to be.

Learn to listen and listen every day

so that you may grow in the spirit

of the Power that keeps you sober.

Today, take your personal inventory,

pray, meditate, carry the message

and live these steps in all of your affairs.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

Tradition Three

.

“Tradition Three –

The only requirement

for A. A. membership

is a desire

to stop drinking.”

.

BB p 564

.

.

No dues or fees, no initiation, no black balls,

just an HONEST desire to stop drinking.

Even though the tradition does not include

the word honest, those who know

H O W, it works,

Honesty, Open-mindedness and Willingness,

are mindful of the suggestion from page 58

of the Big Book.

Today, keep your desire burning, work your program,

go to a meeting, talk with another from the fellowship,

pray, meditate and enjoy the sober life

that is happy, joyous and free.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.
