i start each day with a couple of inspirational readins. 1 from the ‘daily reflection’ and 1 from the ‘hazelden 24hr thought for the day’. i choose what i perceive to be a couple of spiritual principles and pray askin God to help me live them in my day as i live forward tryin to help, in any way, anybody i can. then i meditate and listen for his intuitive guidance to help direct and guide me how to move forward with my day. ive done this since early in my recovery. ive done it daily, every day, no matter what is happenin in my life, regardless of any outside or inside chaos that is happenin. as i have done this each day, ive found that my life today, is lived much simpler than before while out doin my dirt. when i do this, i get to live as a humble individual and member of society. and as i practice the spiritual awareness i gain from each mornins time in communion, i get to take what i have found and grow my spiritual life; im enabled to do many things that seemed too hard for me before. and by far not every day do i live as cleanly as i could, im human, and i have struggles just as any other. these are the times when i need to reach out and ask others for help, times when i fail to use the tools, i thought i had mastered. when i share my time of struggle, i get to listen to how others may have gone through similar times and i learn what has worked for them. this helps me see how i may have let the tools slip from my grasp allowin me to rediscover them for myself. the more i share my own experiences, strengths, and hopes, the healthier i become. my spiritual growth is contingent upon the maintenance of my spiritual condition and whether my day is good or bad, it is my responsibility to try to live and practice the things ive learned through recovery as best as i can. with daily tune ups, i get to continue to carry the vision of my HPs will into all of my activities helpin me to grow hope, encouragement, love, and patience within, for others and myself. 1 day @ a time...
