Endigar 457 ~ Today, I’m Free

From Today’s Daily Reflections;

This brought me to the good healthy realization that there were plenty of situations left in the world over which I had no personal power – that if I was so ready to admit that to be the case with alcohol, so I must make the same admission with respect to much else. I would have to be still and know that He, not I, was God.  (As Bill Sees It, page 114)

I am learning to practice acceptance in all circumstances of my life, so that I may enjoy peace of mind. At one time life was a constant battle because I felt I had to go through each day fighting myself, and everyone else. Eventually, this became a losing battle. I ended up getting drunk and crying over my misery. When I began to let go and let God take over my life I began to have peace of mind. Today, I am free. I do not have to fight anybody or anything anymore.

I am not good with acceptance.  Over and over I have discovered this.  It is almost a running joke that I have acceptance issues.

“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change…”

I used to believe that you could be anything you wanted to be, if you set your mind to it.  The flip side of that is that if I did not achieve ‘whatever,’ then I had a weak mind and cowardly heart.  This helped lay the groundwork for seeing myself either as the potential savior of all or a waste of human flesh.

I know that there are some things I have chosen to pursue that are a waste of time and life energy.  I need to be able to let go and accept the path that the Spirit of the Universe reveals to me.
