The Secret

.

“The secret of the true life

is to remain still

in the midst of activity

and vibrantly awake

while in meditation.

.

~ Dada Vaswani

.

Feeding into the chaos is a false life.

Placating the wishes and wants of others is a false life.

Placing great expectations on people

and God’s world is a false life.

The true life is to see both sides of the coin,

to understand the ebb and flow,

to know the yin and yang of the Great Creator.

Today, seek your balance.

Recovery is to know when to turn off and when to tune in.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

To Grow

November Roses 058

.

.

“When I accept

situations

as they are,

not as I wish

them to be,

then I can begin

to grow and have

serenity and peace of mind.”

.

Daily Reflections,  p. 271

.

Wishes, just like expectations,

are resentments waiting to be born.

 ” …Resentment is the “number one” offender.

It destroys more alcoholics than anything else.

From it stem all forms of spiritual disease,… “

Big Book page 64

Work the Steps,

accept that you are an alcoholic,

accept the this world is exactly the way

God wants it to be.

Have faith, no one is ever too old

to stop growing, to stop learning,

to be able to change their attitude when

they realize that their serenity and peace of mind

are being affected.

Today, ignore the affect and do the accept.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

God loves you and so do we.

Step Eight

lanai (7)

.

8. Made a list

of all persons

we had harmed,

and became willing

to make amends

to them all.”

.

BB p 59

.

.

If we were diligent and honest

in taking our Step Four inventory

we should have a list of those we have offended.

As with many of the suggestions in the Big Book

the only requirement is a WILLINGNESS to change.

Today, be willing, remember that recovery

is life, a journey into the unknown

and change is to be accepted if one

wishes to have a life that is

happy, joyous and free.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.
