Endigar 399 ~ Healing Heart and Mind

From Today’s Daily Reflections;

Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.  (Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, page 55)

Since it is true that God comes to me through people, I can see that by keeping people at a distance I also keep God at a distance. God is nearer to me than I think and I can experience Him by loving people and allowing people to love me. But I can neither love nor be loved if I allow my secrets to get in the way.

It’s the side of myself that I refuse to look at that rules me. I must be willing to look at the dark side in order to heal my mind and heart because that is the road to freedom. I must walk into darkness to find the light and walk into fear to find peace.

By revealing my secrets – and thereby ridding myself of guilt – I can actually change my thinking; by altering my thinking, I can change myself. My thoughts create my future. What I will be tomorrow is determined by what I think today.

Deception reinforces insanity.  Sanity is strengthened and fed by truth.  Double lives lead to fractured personalities and internal civil wars.  My connections with others must be taken off the deceptive transmission frequencies established in active alcoholism and adjusted to the clearest and most accurate truth about myself that I can uncover.  Connections based on the purest form of reality push me toward healing of heart and mind.
