Endigar 568 ~ Daily Monitoring

From the Daily Reflections of October 7;

Continued to take personal inventory. . . .  (Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, page 88)

The spiritual axiom referred to in the Tenth Step—”every time we are disturbed, no matter what the cause, there is something wrong with us“—also tells me that there are no exceptions to it. No matter how unreasonable others may seem, I am responsible for not reacting negatively. Regardless of what is happening around me I will always have the prerogative, and the responsibility, of choosing what happens within me. I am the creator of my own reality.

When I take my daily inventory, I know that I must stop judging others. If I judge others, I am probably judging myself. Whoever is upsetting me most is my best teacher. I have much to learn from him or her, and in my heart, I should thank that person.

This may help me establish a more effective 10th step inventory.  If I carry with me a notepad, and write down every time I am disturbed in any way, from inner anxiety to  outward judgement, I can have a memory back-up and begin a specific analysis of my internal struggle and where I need change.  If something goes really well, I can also write that down as something to sustain.  I now have some spiritual meat hooks which is a metaphor for a pragmatic expression of spiritual encouragement.
