Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery

CHILDLIKE

“In every child who is born, under no matter what circumstances, and of no matter what parents, the potentiality of the human race is born again.”

— James Agee

Today I am able to believe and see the God-given dignity of the human race in the faces and lifestyles of others. In the challenge and rebelliousness of youth is the hope for tomorrow.

Today I can associate myself with the need to question, risk and “be outrageous”. Today I can play, laugh at myself and own my craziness. Today I d not need to be perfect.

When I used drugs, I was so judgmental, serious and controlling. Everything had to have a place, or an answer, or be acceptable to others. My moments of guilt were caused by my inability to please others.

Today I can be childlike and identify with the radical message for tomorrow: “to thine own self be true!”

I see a child looking at the stars and I smile; I am that child.
