A Childish Perspective…What a gift of recovery!
If my heart can become pure and simple like that of a child, I think there probably can be no greater happiness than this. ~Kitaro Nishida~
Meditation Consider the joy and wonder with which a child views the world…trusting that all is good…marveling at the beauty in simple things…believing that anything is possible…loving unconditionally. We should all hope to maintain that childlike perspective! 🙂
Thought for the day
No sooner do we come into the program do we falsely believe our life is over. What Caca this kind of stinking thinking! Now we can really enjoy life to the fullest! If you are not laughing, smiling and loving… resolve to do that and more. Learn to laugh like a child; way down from your gut, the way God would want you to. There is life after addiction…. And it is full of opportunities to enjoy yourself as if you were a child! All you really need to do is work the steps of the program to the best of your ability. It is never too late to have and enjoy your second childhood!
Then Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them, and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me. ~Jesus Matthew 18:2-5
Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein. ~Mark 10:15~
