Endigar 575 ~ A Program for Living

From the Daily Reflections of October 14;

When we retire at night, we constructively review our day. . . . On awakening let us think about the twenty-four hours ahead. . . . Before we begin, we ask God to direct our thinking, especially asking that it be divorced from self-pity, dishonest or self-seeking motives.   (Alcoholics Anonymous, page 86)

I lacked serenity. With more to do than seemed possible, I fell further behind, no matter how hard I tried. Worries about things not done yesterday and fear of tomorrow’s deadlines denied me the calm I needed to be effective each day. Before taking Steps Ten and Eleven, I began to read passages like the one cited above. I tried to focus on God’s will, not my problems, and to trust that He would manage my day. It worked! Slowly, but it worked!





It is really pathetic when I try to manage the results of life.  I am filled with stress and I view people as things to be managed and manipulated.  I am filled with self-judgment in failing to express the unquestionable authority and infinite power necessary to fulfill such expectations.  My designated area of living is to perform tasks as revealed through my connection with God and other life representatives.  I do tasks.  Gomu (God of my understanding) does results.  I perform tasks effectively when I stay connected.  This is simple enough for me to hook in.  It does work.  I need this simple vigilance to embrace the task and release the results.
