THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
In our group we often hear the slogan "Easy Does It." We who suffer our affliction always do everything to excess. We indulge our emotions. We worry too much. We have too much resentment. We tend to be addictive. We tend to hurt ourselves physically, mentally, and spiritually by too much of everything. When we come into this program, we have to learn to take it easy. None of us knows how much longer we have to live. It’s probable that some of us wouldn’t have lived much longer if we had continued the way we were going. By stopping that kind of insanity, we have increased our chances of living for a good while longer. In the time I’ve been a member, have I learned to practice "Easy Does It"?
MEDITATION FOR THE DAY
You must be, before you can do. To accomplish much, be much. The doing must be the expression of the being. It is foolish to believe that we can accomplish much in personal relationships without first preparing ourselves by being honest, pure, unselfish, and loving. We will be given opportunities when we are able and worthy. Our quiet moments are good preparation for creative action.
PRAYER FOR THE DAY
I pray that I may constantly prepare myself for better things to come. I pray that I may have opportunities when I am ready for them.
