What stood out for me in this morning's meeting was the phrase 'a psychic change' that must take place. When I was forced to surrender my best thinking, when I realized that nothing that I knew helped me and that my best bet was to go to a meeting to create a small peaceful time of relief, that was my psychic change. That was my steps one through three in a nutshell. It was my gift of desperation and the beginning of a new way of life that felt like a phoenix rising from the ashes.
It is not about 'being good'. A year ago I read someones profile who lives with active disease and she made the statement that she 'tries to be good' and my heart broke for her and my eyes still fill up at the thought. As Melody Beattie states in today's reading, "Life doesn't have to be hard".
It is about letting life happen, taking care of that soft animal body within us and nurturing an open mind and an open heart. What's good about today is that I can let go of the struggle and know that I am right where I should be in a life of abundance. Blessed Be.
