Who What Where?

Awareness of just who I am, and what that entails is an ongoing process, one that continues to this very day. Age is just a number, today I believe that I will never stop learning about me; who I am, what I am and where I am. Today my mind is clear enough to grasp the idea of a Power greater than my disease, but that isn’t always the case. Today, I know that spiritual acceptance was what I needed to “fill the hole.” Once I accepted that I have a God in my life I began to see the path I needed to take, the path to contentment, awareness, acceptance, willingness, and love of others – and myself. I never knew that the joy of giving would bring me so much happiness, serenity and would be the one thing that fills that terrible emptiness. Today has been one of the roughest days so far because of family, but I can honestly say that I have stopped looking for an external fix for an internal problem.

  2. Oh how I subtly resist the Great Truth.
    Ego mind fears the implications of the words Harry quotes above, or hat were in yesterday’s reflection; my heart yearns for it.
    And that reflects nothing more than my humanness and, in my opinion, cannot change one iota the infinite love God has for me (and everything else).
    So I humbly practice my feeble attempts at loving Him, knowing I can never succeed yet never fail.
    His Grace surrounds me and is all through me- and you as well.
    Grateful for the Gift

  3. The Power That Made The Body Heals The Body . . .

    Consider how God created trees and in their way He made them perfect. They can process minerals from the ground, sunlight from the sky, and rain from the clouds and put these all together to produce a perfect tree. And yet, every tree is different with its own uniqueness that shows its individuality.

    Part of the AA forest, and glad to be here.

  4. Thank you for your share Smb, I liked the reference to acceptance. I have struggled with the acceptance of others behaviors towards me and I struggled with acceptance of a God or spiritual entity that I could turn it over. I said the words let go let God, but today like others I believe it and can speak to the results with a peace of mind. Thanks kt
