The Selfish Ego

.

“We will only fall

when we follow

the voice of our ego;

for it is impossible

to stumble when following

the whisper of the Spirit,

because it never lets go.”

.

~ Kelly Young

.

The selfish Ego is self esteem on steroids,

the loud voice of pride that proceeds the fall.

Today, pursue the balance, seek the silence,

listen to the whispers of the Spirit as you

follow the path that leads you to doing

the will of your loving Higher Power,

doing the next right thing.

Recovery is following the whisper of the Spirit.

Sobriety is a blessing from a 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.

.

ME and the Boss

.

And, if no one has told you yet today,

God loves you and so do we.

Day 17

“My verses, I cannot say poems.
I was following in the exquisite footsteps of Miss Millay,
unhappily in my own horrible sneakers.” — Dorothy Rothschild Parker

Haiku

Listen to the silence
Hear the Uni-verse speaking
Souls seeking love and peace.

Elfje

Silence
Quiet mind
Still the heart
God’s chance to speak
Meditate

Poem

The world cannot know love until you first teach it – heart.
The world cannot know peace until you first experience it – head.
The world cannot know prosperity until first you earn it – hands.
Happiness is first improving ones-self,
and then watching the world change because of your plans.

.

Love, hugs and prayers…ME and the Boss
