Lessons In Humility

I am grateful for the “living amends” that has enabled me to make amends to many whom I have forgotten. Today I work to be of service to my community, and to those who are in my life. Amends is something that will continue in my life, for the rest of my life. It is an opportunity to examine my own behavior and to claim what is truly mine. Making amends is another “tool” in recovery, but it is so much more than merely saying “I’m sorry,” it is an opportunity to make right some of the wrongs in my life. It is also a means of learning and accepting the reality of my behavior towards others. The Program is amazing, it is constantly teaching me new ways of viewing my life, and how I behave towards others. Slowly I am learning how to love and care for others, and through that process have learned to love and care for myself. I just need to be mindful of all the lessons available to me. I will find these lessons if I just keep my eyes, my heart, and my mind open to the blessings and teachings of my Higher Power.

    • Honest, open-minded and willing is what they said I needed to be if I wanted to “get this program”.
      This powerful setting of attitude, of being a perpetual good student quickly led me to resolve to never tire of being “preached” to and believe me I have listened to what I consider to be some pretty dull utterances on many occasions but I have also heard myriads of wonderful shares on what we used to be like, what happened and what we are like now which is a bedrock format for getting into the gratitude attitude.
      We will not regret the past and we will come to appreciate it as the formative baseline of the launchpad which may eventually carry us into the fourth dimension from time to time.
      We will know a new freedom and a new happiness. God of my understanding has promised to make all things new.
      With this in mind I am delighted to get up real early every morning and meet my maker in prayer, meditation and expression.
      I am happy to be guided neither towards the extremes of Pharisee-ism or of secularism (indifference to or rejection or exclusion of religion and religious considerations).

      I am just happy to be exactly where I am and in my own skin.
