Reflection for the Day
For many months after I came to The Program, I paid little attention to the practice of serious meditation and prayer. I felt that it might help me meet an emergency – such as a sudden craving to return to my old ways – but it remained among the lowest priorities. In those early days, I equated prayer and meditation with mystery and even hypocrisy. I’ve since found that prayer and meditation are more rewarding in their results than I could ever have imagined. For me today, the harvest is increasingly bountiful, and I continue to gain peace of mind and strength far beyond my human limitations.
Is my former pain being replaced by tranquility?
Today I Pray
May I discover that prayer and meditation make up the central hall of my life’s structure – the place where my thoughts collect and form into order. May I feel God’s mystery there, and an overwhelming resource of energy.
Today I Will Remember
Fantasy is mine. Mystery is God’s.
