Do not Dwell therefore!

Upon what you perceive as injustice, it was not inflicted on you. Nor suffer from projecting what will be, depending on how your are situated, it is overly fantastic or excruciatingly painful. Now you have the choice to gather from where your inspiration is derived. Cast aside and forgive, make a clean break. For whatContinue reading “Do not Dwell therefore!”

Discernment

The act of perceiving. Well, that’s just great. Admitting that my perception is egregiously flawed, I have arrived at a crossroads where I must summon that which cannot be fathomed by the human mind but know is there. I have a choice to allow myself to be devoured by all the injustice and chaos swirling inContinue reading “Discernment”

Suffering

I posted this as a reflection to my Instagram a year ago. I have migrated to this delightful world called WordPress. This is an excerpt from Thomas Merton’s autobiography Seven Storey Mountain. “Indeed, the truth that many people never understand, until it is too late, is that the more you try to avoid suffering, the more youContinue reading “Suffering”

Delusion

noun A delusion is a belief that is held with strong conviction despite superior evidence to the contrary. As a pathology, it is distinct from a belief based on false or incomplete information, confabulation, dogma, illusion, or other effects of perception. Wikipedia Wait, What? What of Faith then? It goes on, Whew! Many religious beliefs hold exactly the same features, yet are not universally considered delusional. Praise God,Continue reading “Delusion”

Not only am I self employed in a service oriented profession, I have integrated a desire toContinue reading “Enlightened Self Interest”

Please and Thank You

I feel so lucky to be able to embrace, wholeheartedly, the idea that I can improve my conscious contact with God. I acknowledge that many face seemingly insurmountable obstacles when even considering this. It started with the barest beginnings with me. Saying Please when I wake and Thank you as I lay down to end my day. IContinue reading “Please and Thank You”

Justice

We I’m here, writing again about principles that I work toward living by. Today I am writing about justice, which is aligned with the 9th step. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others. For me though, the step is taking direct action out of love forContinue reading “Justice”

Status Update

My new place to stay. I am a roommate in the 3rd-floor unit. Yes, it’s a walkup. I was, somehow able to keep my strength, stamina, and attitude in top form. I am still unpacking and have a few items to bring, store and, or discard at the old place. Wish me luck, so far so,Continue reading “Status Update”

Love

Continuing with my venture into describing principles acquired, developed, learned, what have you, recovering from addiction. It is my assertion that the 12 steps and the order they are in, are divinely inspired. All of the previous steps and principles are needed to make progress to the next. So we’re at step 8. Made a list of allContinue reading “Love”

This is a totally random choice to feature this achievement, of which I can take little of the credit. I have followed the path of many before, who by sharing their experience, have managed to make it through a day without the use of substances to impair themselves in order to relieve  The Longing
