Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #Essentialsofrecovery

REALITY


“It is the chiefest point of happiness that man is willing to be what he is.”

— Desiderious Erasmus

I am an alcoholic. Today I am able to love myself because I am able to accept myself.

More than this: because I am able to accept myself, I am able to be myself. The acceptance of my disease around alcohol has taught me that I am not perfect, and I do not live in a perfect world — this leads to an acceptance of others. My pain around alcohol has given me an insight into the sufferings of others — and this has produced spiritual growth.

I am happy not because I am an alcoholic but because I know that I am an alcoholic. Today I can be what I was meant to be, rather than the “fake” that I was becoming.

In the spiritual journey is the happiness.
