We Are Human (Mind, Body, Spirit)

We know that taking care of our bodies is essential to recovery.  That means eating properly, exercising as much as we can, and not abusing ourselves physically. Taking care of our minds is also important.  We are trying to make choices that enhance our recovery, not diminish it.  This includes the things we read, watch, and listen to.  We seek out education and positive affirmation.  We go to meetings.  We gather with others who share our vision. Spirituality is the common thread through all of this, for without it we are lost.  Our spiritual search is our effort to improve our conscious contact with God.  Through this search comes harmony of body, mind, and spirit.

  1. Our Big Book advises us that we are not restricted in any way or anywhere we may find any measures that may assist us in our quest for sobriety.
    This slightly edited morning resolve has been extremely important to me throughout my thirty year spiritual journey.
    It follows the tenant in the big book of starting each day in the right way.
    As with anything else if we don’t start off right we won’t end right.

    A Morning Resolve

    I will try this day to live a simple, sincere and serene life, repelling promptly every thought of discontent, anxiety, discouragement, impurity, and self-seeking; cultivating cheerfulness, magnanimity, charity, and the habit of holy silence; exercising economy in expenditure, generosity in giving, carefulness in conversation, diligence in appointed service, fidelity to every trust, and a childlike faith in God.

    In particular I will try to be faithful in those habits of prayer, work, study, physical exercise, eating, and sleep which I believe the Holy Spirit has shown me to be right.

    And as I cannot in my own strength do this, nor even with a hope of success attempt it, I look to thee, O Lord God my Father, in Jesus(God of my understanding) my Savior, and ask for the gift of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

    I’m Harry, grateful alcoholic and devoted twelve stepper.
