Awakening Consciousness

Awakening Consciousness

An alarm clock was one of the presents I gave my son on his 21st birthday.  “Useful and symbolic,” was his response. I felt proud he picked up on that.

Flashing back to my age 21 radar screen, no one seemed awake to the magnificent unseen power available to us, at least no one who actively talked to me about it. I take that back – some I knew probably did walk and talk it, but in my world, it absolutely would have gone right over my head… I was the one not awake; utterly clueless.

Word Up

Word Up

If a picture is worth 1000 words, then a word is worth 1000 pictures.

Since catching wind of this, I am much more selective with my words. In the past, words tumbled mindlessly around in my head stirring up emotions, frequently negative, that could spontaneously combust into a tirade or a tantrum, or simmer as internal gloom, doom, and fear.

Meditation

Meditation

I used to wonder sarcastically to myself why, with my addictive personality, I couldn’t get addicted to meditation. I had always heard meditation was a great pathway to deep inner peace, connection, relaxation – all the things I was seeking but didn’t have the patience to cultivate naturally.

Carrying the Message

Carrying the Message

Having an ongoing and ever-deepening spiritual awakening and expansion as a result of these programs, I desire to carry this message to others who seek serenity through spirituality and 12-step work.  And as promised, it becomes another pathway to help me stay rooted in my own sobriety and to practice the spiritual principles of AA and universal law in all my affairs, activities, and relationships.
