Endigar 425 ~ Spiritual Health

From Today’s Daily Reflections;

When the spiritual malady is overcome, we straighten out mentally and physically.  (Alcoholics Anonymous, page 64)

It is very difficult for me to come to terms with my spiritual illness because of my great pride, disguised by my material successes and my intellectual power. Intelligence is not incompatible with humility, provided I place humility first. To seek prestige and wealth is the ultimate goal for many in the modern world. To be fashionable and to seem better than I really am is a spiritual illness.

To recognize and to admit my weaknesses is the beginning of good spiritual health. It is a sign of spiritual health to be able to ask God every day to enlighten me, to recognize His will, and to have the strength to execute it. My spiritual health is excellent when I realize that the better I get, the more I discover how much help I need from others.

Spiritual health includes my ability to make connections with God and with others who are committed to my strongest and most useful self-expression.  Pride, or the need to seem better than I really am, is illness because its inherit delusions require that I maintain an isolating wall to preserve the fantasy.

Spirituality equals connection is my stock answer.  Although it is useful, it does not resonate with me this morning.  I fear that having a quick answer might keep me from hearing something deeper and slower to manifest. . . so I ask God to enlighten me.  I do wish to recognize His will.  I most certainly need an infusion of the strength to execute it.
