The following is an excerpt from Higher Thoughts for Down Days for June 17th.
I will make a point of it today to trust that my Higher Power is going to restore me to sanity and wholeness, the more I let go of what I want and let it move along the way of what it wants for me.
“Actually we were fooling ourselves, for deep down in every man, woman and child is the fundamental idea of God. It may be obscured by calamity, by pomp, by worship of other things, but in some form it is there. For faith in a Power greater than ourselves, and miraculous demonstration of that power in human lives are facts as old as man himself.” ( Bill W.)
CLARIFICATION OF THOUGHT
Sometimes I have been brought to my knees by some calamity or some traumatic loss in my life only to find that in time, by admitting my defeat, I was instead raised up and I found hope. It is a mystery how the Higher Power works but I am certain about this, namely, that deep down inside of me I believe that my conscious contact with my Higher Power will bring me what I need when I need it.
The more I believe in the daily demonstration of the Higher Power, the more I place my trust in its ability to free me from all the memories that holds me captive in my isolation and aloneness.”
