Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery

GREED


“Not he who has little, but he who wishes more, is poor.”

— Seneca (4 B. C. — A. D. 65)


In my recovery I must still deal with that compulsive side of my nature that always wants more.

I forget to be grateful for what I have. I ruin relationships because I have a code of behavior that I expect from others but not myself! I miss the fun of the moment because I am preoccupied with what I am missing elsewhere. I miss the comfort of my own home as I fantasize about country mansions owned by millionaires. Always I want more — and yet in my own experience more has always been less.

Today I work hard on a spiritual program of gratitude. I have a checklist of things I need to be grateful for; I work on my disease of greed by talking about it.

Thank You for that part of me that must remain “poor”.
