DECEMBER 23 Reflection for the Day
How can I tell if I have begun to be aware of my spirituality. Sometimes the discovery that we are spiritual beings manifests itself in simple, rather than complicated, evidences: emotional maturity; an end to constant and soul-churning resentments; the ability to love and be loved in return; the belief, even without understanding, that a Power beyond us controls the setting and rising sun, brings forth and ends life, and gives joy to human hearts.
Am I now aware, as I try to practice the Gamblers Anonymous principles in all my affairs, that my perspective is wider, my view of humanity gentler, than in the self-centered misery of my gambling days?
Today I Pray
May my spiritual confidence begin to spread over my attitudes towards others, especially during holiday times, when anticipations and anxieties are high. As a compulsive gambler, I have not handled the emotions of holidays well. I pray for serenity to cope with the holiday brew of emotions.
Today I Will Remember
Perspective comes through practicing the principles.
