Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery


“There are two ways to slide easily through life: To believe everything or to doubt everything. Both ways save us from thinking.”

—Alfred Korzybski

This statement is so true for me. I was so compulsive and obsessive not only about the things that I believed in but also about the things I didn’t believe in. I was extreme. Everything I did was exaggerated. I either raced through life at ten thousand miles an hour or was in neutral. Balance was absent.

Today I am developing balance in my life, more patience and more tolerance. I have discovered that my extremism was a mask by which I hid from life; I did not have to think, consider or ponder—I simply reacted.

Now I know that to believe in everything is to believe nothing; and to doubt everything is not to think. Life is “a many splendored thing” but it has a variety of options.

God of the many, help me to discover You in the myriad of thoughts that life produces.
