Recovery Quotes

I love just for today quotes because  I never really make it into tomorrow.

My mind likes to wander there, yet I know my true purpose is in this moment.

So in this moment I write a blog, reach out, smile on the inside, and think about how I can be a channel of unconditional love.

And share just for today.

 

Just for today…

Recovery Quotes

"Death is a stripping away of all that is not you. The secret of life is to "die before you die" --- and find that there is no death."

This made no sense to me until a little over a month ago. Being in a dark place, there was a piece of me, a painful emotional cancer that had to die.

Before it took my physical being.Prayer, meditation and the twelve steps gave me a new peace. Practice of unconditional Love in every moment of this day, sets me free.

Recovery Quotes

"Give up defining yourself - to yourself or to others. You won't die. You will come to life. And don't be concerned with how others define you. When they define you, they are limiting themselves, so it's their problem. Whenever you interact with people, don't be there primarily as a function or a role, but as the field of conscious Presence. You can only lose something that you have, but you cannot lose something that you are."

Recovery Quotes

To fear death, my friends, is only to think ourselves wise, without being wise:
for it is to think that we know what we do not know. For anything that men
can tell, death may be the greatest good that can happen to them: but they
fear it as if they knew quite well that it was the greatest of evils. And what is
this but that shameful ignorance of thinking that we know what we do not
know?
 
-- Socrates

The painful part is when I open my mouth with a thought connected to a…
