Getting Down to BasicsPosted: December 26, 2011
Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.
When we have problems we look to some thing outside of us to fix us. Everything we try, drugs alcohol, food, relationships, shopping, even therapy can’t fix us.
If we can get real and get honest with ourselves the truth will set us free.
Denial is a strong prison.
Going to meetings saves us, but meetings can’t do it for us, if we are unwilling to be honest with ourselves.
Sometimes just keeping our selves in the seats at a meeting is enough to get through a day and stay sober, but to really live the life our Higher Power wants for us, we need to get down to basic truth and face whatever it is we are concealing from ourselves.
The New Year coming up will give us opportunities for resolution. Chinese Year of The Dragon. Equal to St.Michael the Archangel, the Dragon leads the Chinese New Year Parades to ward off the evil energy.
Let’s go into 2012 with open eyes and take some action to change our lives for the better. The Planets are lining up and there is much magic ahead.
Above all, don’t lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.”
Love and a Cough
“As it has been said:
Love and a cough
cannot be concealed.
Even a small cough.
Even a small love.”
― Anne Sexton
