Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery

SOLITUDE


“People who take time to be alone usually have depth, originality and quiet reserve.”

–John Miller

I need to be alone. I need time to listen to my thoughts, consider my opinions and strengthen my body. I need to pull away from my hectic life to be alone with me.

As a drinking alcoholic I hated to be alone. I became paranoiac about “leaving the fort” – today I accept that nobody is indispensable and that the world will still be there when I return from the desert!

Today I grow in the stillness of solitude. I can rest in that “still” part of me that is the essential me.

God is very close to me in the silence of self.

Lord, in the stillness of Your life, I am healed and rejuvenated.
