Think Less, Feel More

.

“Get out of

your head

and get into

your heart.

Think less,

feel more.”

.

~ Osho

.

Can’t you just feel it ???

When one stops thinking

and searches out the vibrations

of the Spirit of the Uni-verse,

and you allow yourself to become one with the Light,

serenity, peace of mind and love are yours to be enjoyed.

Today, feel the love,

avoid mean people,

do not go to evil places

and do only the next right thing.

Recovery is to think less, feel more.

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.

Self

October Roses 059

.

“For so many years

my life revolved

solely around myself.

I was consumed with

self in all forms –

self-centeredness,

self-pity, self-seeking,

all of which stemmed

from pride.”

.

Daily Reflections,   p. 71

.

False pride, ego, such a difficult thing to put aside,

such a difficult concept to comprehend;

that if I put the welfare and concerns of others

before my own selfish wants, I will become

the beneficiary of serenity and peace of mind.

The biggest problem was my ignorance;

I did not know what serenity and peace of mind were

and I had no idea that there were beneficial

to ones well being.

Thanks to the guidance of a loving Higher Power,

the fellowship of A.A., a sponsor, the literature,

and a few million friends, I now know serenity

and peace of mind and I understand that

the first drink can ruin it all.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Peace

October Roses 046

.

.

“Peace is possible

for me only when

I let go of

expectations.”

.

.

Daily Reflections,   p. 197

.

.

Expectations are resentments waiting to be born.

Resentments are the number one killer of the alcoholic.

Don’t kill yourself; don’t drink, don’t think, go to a meeting

and don’t expect anything.

Always forgive those who are dysfunctional,

the selfish and self centered.

Many of the maladapted are not alcoholics

but they are addictive personalities who are

always out to create chaos to ruin the

serenity and peace of mind of the sane thinker.

Today, know peace, avoid expectations.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Our Work

Lowes flowers 4-09 016

.

“We have come to believe

He would like us to keep

our heads in the clouds with Him,

but that our feet ought

to be firmly planted on earth.

That is where

our fellow travelers are,

and that is where

our work must be done.”

.

BB p 130

.

With so much gratitude to/for a Higher Power

who has removed the compulsion and obsession to drink

it would be so easy to concentrate on becoming

a better member of society, however, the book

suggests that to keep that pink cloud feeling

one must work with another alcoholic.

Today, enjoy the serenity and peace of mind

however, to keep the feelings follow the suggestions;

don’t drink, work a step, pray, meditate

and talk with another drunk.

The easiest place to find another alcoholic

to talk to is at a meeting.

Recovery is one day at a time.

A Daily Review

.

“When we retire

at night,

we constructively

review our day.”

.

BB p 86

.

.

In order to live in the here and now

we must make peace with the past and

pray for the strength and courage to do the

will of our Higher Power tomorrow.

By reviewing Steps Ten and Eleven and

applying their suggestions to our daily routine

we will discover the promises coming to fruition

in our lives.

Today, work the steps into your daily routine

and learn to know serenity and peace of mind.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Good and Useful Purpose

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

.

“So we think

that unless some

good and useful purpose

is to be served,

past occurrences

should not be discussed.”

.

BB p 125

.

My sponsor used the metaphor of

the scab that covers a wound

to describe the old emotional harms that

the alcoholic has inflicted upon self, family and friends.

If you keep picking and pulling the scab off

the wound will never heal.

To forgive does not mean that you must forget,

it means that you must move on and allow

old wars to rest in peace.

Today, let the healing begin, don’t open old wounds.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.
