Endigar 349 ~ A Day’s Plan

From Today’s Daily Reflection;

On awakening let us think about the twenty-four hours ahead.  We consider our plans for the day.  Before we begin, we ask God to direct our thinking, especially asking that it be divorced from self-pity, dishonest or self-seeking motives.  (Alcoholics Anonymous, page 86)

Every day I ask God to kindle within me the fire of His love, so that love, burning bright and clear, will illuminate my thinking and permit me to better do His will.  Throughout the day, as I allow outside circumstances to dampen my spirits, I ask God to sear my consciousness with the awareness that I can start my day over any time I choose; a hundred times, if necessary.



I understand that I am seeking a “one day at a time” transformation.  My disconnected self has established patterns of thinking that are destructive to myself and others. They are normal behavior to me.  I need the help of my Higher Power to reveal and daily consent to their removal.

When God removes them and I am left with a hole in my life, what is there to replace them with?  Love?  No, that word is another bundle word in the English language and is far too broad to be useful.  I love cookies.  I love my family.  I love sexual intimacy.  I have just said three different things using that one word.  There is also the co-dependent love that equals enabling destructive behavior.

As the rock group Foreigner once said, “I want to know what love is, I want You to show me.”

I am alive and free of an alcoholic hell because I have turned my life over to the Love of God.  Whenever I see the Care of God  manifested in my life, I ask to emulate it in the lives of those around me.

In science, there is an extension of the Pauli exclusion principle that states “no two objects can occupy the same space at the same time.”   In other words, they would have to be the same object when occupying the same space at the same time.  I propose another extension of the exclusion principle stated thus; that two or more spirits performing and existing in the same frequency at the same time cannot remain disconnected.  If I can operate in God’s frequency of love with an awareness and surrender to His timing, I will begin to develop a natural union with the Infinite One with a natural flow of Infinite Power through me.  I will not find myself in stagnant waters drained of life.

One day at a time, I seek to foster this Infinite Union by emulating the Care of God.  If I fall into old habits of isolation, if I fail to emulate the Care of God, I will feel the disconnect and intuitively know that something is off.  I learn from it, and seek to adjust fire on my target.  The recovery program gives me a chemistry set to work in the laboratory of transformation.

A closed container cannot receive Infinite Power.  Only a container that knows how to become a channel, both receiving and transmitting, can experience it.  Nature resists a vacuum.  If I give away what is given me, I create a natural suction upon the Universe.  I do not have to continually beg to recover by seeking the cleaning out of the stagnant water of my isolated alcoholic mind and replacing it with the clean water of the Spirit.  The flow of God’s Love will become a way of life.

Therefore, the guiding question upon awakening for me is, “how can I copy the existence and activity of my Higher Power today?”
