July 28 Reflection for the Day
We learn the value of meditation in the Gamblers Anonymous Program. As the beginning of the Eleventh Step suggests, we sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious with God as we understood Him. One of the great values of meditation is that it clears the mind. And as the mind becomes clearer, it becomes more capable and willing to acknowledge the truth. Less pain is required to force honest recognition of defects and their results. The real needs of the whole person are revealed.
Are prayer and meditation a regular part of my daily living?
Today I Pray
May God’s truths be revealed to me through meditation and these small prayers, through contact with my group, which keeps me mindful of my need to clear my mind with daily meditation. For only an uncluttered mind can receive God, and only a mind cleansed of self-interest can acknowledged the truth.
Today I Will Remember
Meditation is a mind-cleanser.
