10-10: Rolling With the Flow…

Rolling With the Flow…

Quote
To act and act wisely when the time for action comes, to wait and wait patiently when it is time for repose, put man in accord with the rising and falling tides (of affairs), so that with nature and law at his back, and truth and beneficence as his beacon light, he may accomplish wonders. Ignorance of this law results in periods of unreasoning enthusiasm on the one hand, and depression on the other. Man thus becomes the victim of the tides when he should be their Master.
~Helena Petrova Blavatsky~

Meditation
The circumstances of life are ever changing, as we are daily faced with new challenges and opportunities.  Learning to recognize the ebbs and flows, and respond to them accordingly…maintaining a consistency of purpose throughout, brings true peace and contentment, without regard to external conditions.

Thought for the day
Let us all remember that this is exactly what the program is about; to develop a relationship with a God that is so rich that we can finally learn to live life on life’s terms.  Knowing when to surrender situations to God, learning when to work hard at accomplishing those things that we feel are in God’s will for us, and finally learning when just to be still and wait…these are the personal fruits of our work as we continue to be filled with the spiritual principles contained in the Steps.

Scriptures
…For I have learned how to be content (satisfied to the point where I am not disturbed or disquieted) in whatever state that I am.  I know how to be abased and live humbly in straitened circumstances, and I know how to enjoy plenty and live in abundance. I have learned in any and all circumstances the secret of facing every situation, whether well-fed or going hungry, having sufficiency and enough to spare or going without and being in want.  I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me;  I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency]. ~Philippians 4:11-13 (Amp)~

About SLAA Tilburg

Wat is seks- en liefdeverslaving? Wij in S.L.A.A. geloven dat seks- en liefdeverslaving een voortschrijdende ziekte is, die niet kan worden genezen maar die, zoals veel ziekten, wel tot staan kan worden gebracht. Zij kan verschillende vormen aannemen – inclusief (maar niet beperkt tot) een dwangmatige behoefte aan seks, extreme afhankelijkheid van één persoon (of meerdere personen), en/of een voortdurend in beslag genomen worden door romantiek, affaires of fantasieën. Er is sprake van een obsessief-dwangmatig patroon, seksueel of emotioneel (of beide), waarin relaties of seksuele activiteiten in toenemende mate destructief geworden zijn voor de loopbaan, het gezinsleven en het gevoel van zelfrespect. Als seks- en liefdeverslaving wordt veronachtzaamd, wordt zij altijd erger. Wanneer wij echter een eenvoudig programma volgen dat voor een reeks van mannen en vrouwen met dezelfde ziekte succesvol is gebleken, kunnen wij herstellen. In S.L.A.A. leren wij de realiteit te accepteren dat wij deze verslaving hebben
