Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery


HONESTY

“Where is there dignity unless there is honesty?”

–Marcus Cicero

The cornerstone of my life today is honesty. It is the quality I most desire in my life because I believe that with honesty comes a knowledge of God, self and relationships. It is the key to my recovery from addiction. It is the key to the meaning of spirituality. Honesty affords me hope for tomorrow.

As an alcoholic I was a dishonest man. I was not just dishonest because I told lies and manipulated the truth, I was dishonest because I refused to risk the journey into self. My dishonesty was not about what I said but what I did not say! Not so much about what I did but what I did not do.  My dishonesty stopped me from discovering my God-given dignity.

Today I risk the journey into self and I am discovering more about God “as I understand Him”. My level of honesty helps me to be happy and relaxed with who I am today.

“Be still and know that I am God.” In the silence of self-honesty may I know myself.
