Today’s Reminder: The Spiritual

“We are not human beings on a spiritual journey.
We are spiritual beings on a human journey.”

~ Stephen R. Covey ~

Courage to Change Series: Being Spiritual

*Page 327*

Al-Anon is a spiritual recovery program. The word “recovery” implies that we are regaining something we once possessed but have lost or set aside. In the confusion of living with active drinkers, I lost track of my spirit. Life was a survival game, a daily grind of fear and hard work. No matter what I tried, nothing seemed to help. Perhaps that’s because I was trying to do it all myself. In Al-Anon I have come to know that I have a resource within me and all around me that can guide me through the most overwhelming fears and most challenging decisions – a Higher Power. Regardless of how I define that Higher Power, it is real to me and has always been here for me. I am so grateful to have recovered that connection to my spirituality, for in doing so, I have regained an essential part of myself. As a result, today my life has a sense of purpose that makes each moment a precious gift.

3 C’s of Al-Anon

  1. We didn’t CAUSE it
  2. We can’t CONTROL it
  3. We can’t CURE it

AND WE WON’T CONTRIBUTE TO IT TODAY

Questions to Consider This Week

  1. What part of myself am I excited to have regained or looking forward to regaining through a healing process of family recovery?
  2. Have I taken the time today to tap into the Power within me that connects to my Higher Power? Do I realize the importance that will play in the way I live my life?
  3. What other things am I willing to try today in an effort to cultivate my spiritual connection?
