Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery

LIFE


“May you live all the days of your life.”

–Jonathan Swift

I heard a story that offers a key to the meaning of spirituality: Two little fish were huddled together, afraid to move. A large fish swam by them, confident and strong. The big fish shouted out to the two little fish, “Why don’t you swim out and enjoy the beautiful ocean?” The two little fish looked at each other and asked, “Where is the ocean?” They were in it but they didn’t know it!

As an alcoholic I existed in life but I didn’t live: I missed vacations, people, friendships, feelings, nature, sunsets and God. Like so many addicts, I was numbered amongst the “walking dead”. Today I continue to make a spiritual choice that avoids alcohol and I am able to feel again. Today I am alive.

In You I live to love and love to live.
