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.

Be Confident

.

.

“If I have lost

confidence in myself,

I have the universe

against me.”

.

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

.

.

When we walk in The Light,

following the path God’s will has for us

we can confidently face each and every day.

When we step over unto the Dark Side,

our confidence is left behind,

we no longer sing in tune with the Uni-verse

and all hope is abandoned.

Today, have faith, the Great Creator has

given us every reason to be confident.

Recovery is to have the confidence

that we can do God’s will.

Sobriety s a blessing from a Higher Power.

Sweep Away The Debris

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

.

“We attempt

to sweep away

the debris which

has accumulated

out of our effort

to live on self-will

and run the show

ourselves.”

.

BB p 76

.

When the will is primarily concerned about

when and where is the next drink coming from

the alcoholic invariably makes a few mistakes along the way.

Major problems: divorce, run-in with the law, lost jobs

or just minor faux pas; unhappy marriage, stuck in a job rut,

or just never able to get ahead, the recovering alcoholic

who honestly works the steps with a sponsor

will eventually see that it was not  his will, or the lack of it,

but the demon John Barleycorn who created most of the messes.

Today, work the steps, put your ego in its place

and humbly ask your Higher Power to guide you

towards a life that is happy, joyous and free.

Recovery is one day 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 Drink Is To Die

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

.

“For when harboring

such feelings (resentments)

we shut ourselves off

from the sunlight

of the Spirit.

The insanity of alcohol returns

and we drink again.

And with us, to drink is to die.”

.

BB p 66

.

The Spirit of the Uni-verse is unconditional love.

Love is being able to accept and forgive.

I may not like your actions, however,

I will continue to love you unconditionally

because you are a child of the Great Creator

and I can identify with the disease that is controlling you life.

Read the book, go to meetings, get a sponsor, help another drunk,

work your program and be willing to enjoy the greatest promise of all,

‘there is a better way.’

Become a long timer, don’t drink, don’t die.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

A Spiritual Experience

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA 
“We may have had

certain spiritual beliefs,

but now we begin to have

a spiritual experience.

The feeling that the drink

problem has disappeared

will often come strongly.

We feel we are on

the Broad Highway,

walking hand in hand with the Spirit of the Universe.”

.

BB p 75

.

The good feeling that the compulsion and obsession

to drink has been lifted and the even better feeling

when you realize that a Higher Power did for you

what you could not do for yourself.

William James wrote a whole book trying to explain

a Spiritual Experience and all he could determine

was that each experience is as individual as is

the person who has had the feeling.

Burning bush or subtle ah-ha, today, feel the presence

of the Spirit of the Universe in and around you.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

Spirit of the Universe

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

.

“When we saw others

solve their problems

by a simple reliance

upon the

Spirit of the Universe,

we had to stop doubting

the power of God.”

.

BB p 52

.

Get out of one’s self, do not compare, identify,

recovery is all about changing the feelings,

perceptions and misconceptions we had about

our past lives.

Today, be willing to see what the happy, joyous and free

have done to create their Higher Power, what they

did to accept what the Spirit of the Universe

has done for them.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

Day 18

“We all write poems;
it is simply that the poets are the ones
who write in words” — John Fowles

.

Haiku

Something to hope for
a better peaceful world
happy, joyous, free

Elfje

Willing
to do
good for others
the next right thing
Service

Poem

The rhythm of the loving heart
is synchronous with the Spirit of the Universe

A loving heart beats much louder in part
and is one that a Higher Power will gladly endorse

The loving heart creates harmonious echoes
that will be heard for many generations to come

The loving heart will make us heroes
no matter where we our intentions are from

The best loving heart is attached to a kind mind
Allow your actions to teach by good example

the way happy, joyous lives are best defined
to assure that all of life’s rewards are ample

Peace of mind is the reward for doing your part
Serenity is feeling the contented beat of a loving heart.

.
Love, hugs and prayers…ME and the Boss
