Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery


FACTS

“Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.”

–Aldous Huxley


Reality is not dependent upon our acceptance. Addiction does not have

to be accepted to be real. Alcoholism was killing people long before it

had a name!


I need to remember this in the recovery program for my life. A big

part of my life was spent denying that I had a problem. My

manipulative art was exercised in discovering more acceptable

excuses for my drunkenness, rather than looking at the problem. I

danced toward death with God and denial on my lips. Belief in the God

of Truth did not stop my dishonesty.


The process of self-love and acceptance began in my cry for help.

Surrender brought me sanity. God was working His purpose out in my

life because I was getting out of my way; I was facing the facts.

Spirituality is making the words fit the feelings, and the feelings make

the action.
