Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery

REALITY


“I tend to be suspicious of people whose love of animals is exaggerated; they are often frustrated in their relationship with humans.”

–Yila (Camilla Koffler)


Anything can be used to avoid dealing with reality. People can use alcohol, food, drugs, people, sex, gambling – and yes, even animals – to avoid dealing with their loneliness and feelings of isolation.

The key to addiction is to be found in the obsessive and compulsive behavior patterns that stop us from reaching our full potential as human beings. We cannot relax with who we are because of our exaggerated and painful lifestyles. We cannot truly love ourselves because of our obsession with the “it” that seems to be controlling us. At some point we need to see the obsession and begin to talk about it.

In order for me to be a spiritual person I must free myself from compulsive attitudes.

God, I meditate on the “comfortableness” of freedom.
