Endigar 567 ~ Facing Ourselves

From the Daily Reflections of October 6;

. . . and Fear says, “You dare not look!”  (Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, page 49)

How often I avoided a task in my drinking days just because it appeared so large! Is it any wonder, even if I have been sober for some time, that I will act that same way when faced with what appears to be a monumental job, such as a searching and fearless moral inventory of myself? What I discover after I have arrived at the other side—when my inventory is completed—is that the illusion was greater than the reality. The fear of facing myself kept me at a standstill and, until I became willing to put pencil to paper, I was arresting my growth based on an intangible.




me - Me

How much of my reality is a mirror of my own self-awareness.  My attitude toward God improves with my improved attitude to Myself.  My emotional response to other people are about my emotions toward myself.  My integrity in outward communication is a reflection of my fearless inward communication.  My acceptance of life on life’s terms reflects the level of acceptance I have allowed for my own humanity.  The most powerful thing I can do is face my way of living and seek spiritual progress, and let that reflect into the world around me.
