Master and Captain

.

.

It matters not how strait the gate,

How charged with punishments

the scroll;

I am the master of my fate:

I am the captain of my soul.

.

~ William Ernest Henley

.

.

When we arrive at the Pearly Gates

it is all over but the reading of the scroll.

How we chose to live our life

will have determined our fate and

will have set the course for our soul to sail.

Today, chose to set sail in the direction

of a loving Higher Power.

Recovery is to be the captain of your soul.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Discover Yourself

.

“The creative is

the place where no one

else has ever been.

You have to leave

the city of your comfort

and go into the wilderness

of your intuition.

What you’ll discover

will be wonderful.

What you’ll discover is yourself.”

.

~ Alan Alda

.

The mind thinks, usually incorrectly,

but the soul intuitively knows

what the Great Creator wants you to be.

Today, forget the image the mind wants to create

and go to the soul and find out who you

are capable of creating.

Recovery is discovering yourself.

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.

Laughter

.

.

.

the most wasted

of all days is

one without laughter.”

.

~ e. e. cummings

.

.

.

laughter is good when we laugh

with others, not at them.

laughter is good when we laugh

at ourselves.

laughter is good when we laugh

body, mind and soul.

today, look for the happiness,

know that it can be found in kindness and love

and in a friend with whom you can share a laugh.

Recovery is a good laugh.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Conquer Yourself

.

“It is better to conquer yourself

than to win a thousand battles.

Then the victory is yours.

It cannot be taken from you,

not by angels or by demons,

heaven or hell.”

.

~ Buddha

.

.

Body, mind and soul, find the balance

between what comes and what goes,

between what we take and what we give

and we will have conquered ourselves.

The victor does not concede to any person,

place or thing, does not dance to their dictates,

and becomes one with the ebb and flow

that is the rhythm of the Uni-verse.

Recovery is to conquer yourself.

Sobriety is a blessing from a High Power.

The Inside Job

.

“Though we travel

the world over

to find the beautiful,

we must carry it with us

or we find it not.”

.

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

.

It is not what you see, it is how you perceive.

The Great Creator has made this world beautiful,

look for the good, be kind and loving, have faith,

believing that God has already provide the beautiful.

Today, look inside of yourself,

God has also planted something beautiful in there,

a soul that can be happy, joyous and free.

Recovery is having a beautiful attitude.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

A Small Word

002

.

“Impossible is just

a small word that is

thrown around by small men

who find it easier to live

in a world they’ve been given,

than to explore the power

they have to change it.”

.

~ Muhammad Ali

.

Don’t like the small world that you live in,

let go and let God show you that within your

heart and soul is the power to change.

It is not likely that you will achieve

the top of the mountain with your first try

but have faith, know that the journey to the top

begins with one small exploratory step.

Recovery is to explore your power to change.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
