“Work and Wait”

.

.

“Work and wait”,

“work and wait”,

that is what God

says to us in creation.”

.

~ Josiah Gilbert Holland

.

.

God will give you the chance, the choice is yours.

Today, work to create a life that is built around

doing the will of your loving Higher Power.

Today, love, laugh, be patient, be tolerant,

be kind and be the person God wants you to be.

Today, know that good choices will not have to

wait long to be rewarded with the blessings of

the loving Spirit of the Uni-verse.

Recovery is to “work and wait”.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

The Currencies

.

“The cosmos doesn’t

measure sweat and hours

for reward.

The cosmos deals in

the currencies of

joy and satisfaction.”

.

~ Danielle LaPorte

.

.

Sometimes, no sweat and a snap can be the most

joyous gift you can give to the Spirit of the Universe.

However, life is often a lot of blood, sweat and tears,

failures and mis-steps time after time,

do not be discouraged,

the joy and satisfaction of a job well done is cause

for the same celebration.

There is great gratification received from

doing the will of your loving Higher Power.

Recovery work is rewarded with joy and satisfaction.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

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.

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.
