Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery


“I haven’t understood a bar of music in my life, but I have felt it.”

— Igor Stravinsky

It is okay not to “understand”.

A miracle is not to be understood but experienced. So much in life we will never understand and there is growth in confusion. We are not perfect. We will never be perfect. The mystery of life is exactly that — a mystery.

As an alcoholic I often sought to appear “as God”. I had to have an answer for everything, even if I made up the answer! Not to know was humiliating for me because it took away control, my need to be in charge, my hopeless and exhausting quest for perfection. With the failure to be perfect came the guilt, shame and anger.

Today I am able to live with life’s daily confusions — and it’s okay!
