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.

Enduring Entities

.

“Most of our troubles are

due to our passionate

desire for and attachment

to things that

we misapprehend

as enduring entities.”

.

~ Dalai Lama

.

The only enduring entity is the Great Creator,

the Spirit of the Universe, the God of your understanding.

People, places and things will come and go and

just about the time we think we know the value of

something, God will make it become a memory.

Today, allow your soul to become one with the Uni-verse,

the Enduring Entity that allows us to know

happy, joyous and free.

Recovery is being attached to the God of your understanding.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Me, You and God

003

.

Pray as though

everything

depended on God.

Work as though

everything

depended on you.”

.

~ Saint Augustine

.

God has designed this world to be a “WE” world,

me, you and God; with the sole purpose of having

us work together to make this Uni-verse

a better place for all.

Today, pray to God that you may have only

kind and loving thoughts and that all of your actions

will make this “WE” world happy, joyous and free.

Today, act as though the world depends on you.

Recovery is depending on God and self.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

And, if no one has told you yet today,

God loves you and so do we.

Freedom From Self-will

Pine Island Sunset 031

.

“We ask especially for

freedom from self-will,

and are careful to make

no request for

ourselves only.”

.

BB p 87

.

Prayer and meditation, a tool used by most (all) of the

recovered alcoholics who have good sobriety.

Before we make our daily plans and set upon the Uni-verse

to do what we “want” to do, it is good if we check in

with a loving Higher Power to make sure

those are the things that we “need” to do.

Rule number One:

Will my actions make this world a better place for all,

myself included.

Today, don’t look for rule Number Two,

if you have followed rule Number One

that will be all that you need.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

Freedom From Fear

.

“The achievement of

freedom from fear

is a lifetime

undertaking,

one that can never

be wholly completed.”

.

Grapevine, Jan 1962
As Bill Sees It, p 263

.

When one is lucky enough to know everything

there is to know about God’s Uni-verse

the only thing left to fear will be tomorrow.

So, in the meantime, since we don’t know everything

and we have no clue what tomorrow will bring,

fear is something that we will have to live with,

a feeling that comes as natural as breathing,

and if someone tells you they have no fear,

be suspicious.

Learn something new every day so that

you may fear less.

Some lessons need to be repeated, such as,

if you don’t pick up the first drink,

you won’t get drunk.

Today, learn to listen and listen to learn.

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.

Day 20

“Painting is silent poetry,
and poetry is painting that speaks.”  ~ Plutarch

Haiku

Colorful Nature
The hand of the Creator
Inadequate words

Elfje

word
a picture
is always worth
more than a thousand
imagination

Poem

The mind is the key
To a Higher Power I plea

I am but a steward of Uni-verse
Deigned not to do the perverse

Mother nature to protect
Nor my body to neglect

Acknowledging that the soul dwells
beautifully adorned in light pastels

In the heart of all who pray
For however long or short their stay

The mind is the enigma
Choices are what grow the stigma

The mind must humbly respect
So that the body and soul will reflect

A life that could not be any greater
A life that is worthy of the Creator

.

Love, hugs and prayers…ME and the Boss
