March 22, 2015 – Readings in Recovery: Today’s Gift from Hazelden

Sunday, March 22, 2015

Today’s thought from Hazelden is:

I play while I work and I work while I sleep. I depend on the functioning of my subconscious imagination to do my work.
 — Edith Shannon

Our minds are never at rest. It’s rather nice to know that someplace within we remember everything that caught our attention; even when we weren’t conscious of it. Learning to tap into this well of information comes with lots of practice and the willingness to get quiet, really quiet.

It’s our attitudes that make play of work. Keeping our thoughts and composure joyful prevents even the dullest task from boring us. Being open to the possibility that fun is an outlook we can foster changes us quite profoundly. It also keeps the channel to our interior imagination uncluttered with the negative. We will always know how to proceed in every instance if we let our inner knowing guide us. The subconscious imagination is never asleep.

My inner self stands at attention always. I will let it answer my questions and make my decisions.
