Endigar 607 ~ Intuition and Inspiration

From the Daily Reflections of November 14;

. . . we ask God for inspiration, an intuitive thought or a decision. We relax and take it easy. We don’t struggle.   (Alcoholics Anonymous, page 86)

I invest my time in what I truly love. Step Eleven is a discipline that allows me and my Higher Power to be together, reminding me that, with God’s help, intuition and inspiration are possible. Practice of the Step brings on selflove. In a consistent attempt to improve my conscious contact with a Higher Power, I am subtly reminded of my unhealthy past, with its patterns of grandiose thinking and false feelings of omnipotence. When I ask for the power to carry out God’s will for me, I am made aware of my powerlessness. Humility and a healthy selflove are compatible, a direct result of working Step Eleven.

“Intuition and inspiration are possible.”  This, to me, is the kernel of living a real life.  It is all the magic I have dreamed of as a child gaining dominance in the suffocation of my adult world.  I live to connect beyond the limitations of human fear.  The more others have beyond self connections, the more powerful we all become.   Alcohol was my last hail Mary for . . . something more.  In the short run it failed me.  Ultimately it opened me to the 12 steps of the AA Fellowship and the most genuine relationship I have ever had with God, through the Gomu concept, that is, finding a God Of My Understanding.
