{AA in Thailand} Daily Reflections NOVEMBER 8

 NOVEMBER 8
AN INDIVIDUAL ADVENTURE 
Meditation is something which can always be further
developed. It has no boundaries, either of width or height.
Aided by such instruction and example as we can find, it is
essentially an individual adventure, something which each
one of us works out in his own way. 
TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 101 

My spiritual growth is with God as I understand Him. With
Him I find my true inner self. Daily meditation and prayer
strengthen and renew my source of well-being. I receive
then the openness to accept all that He has to offer. With
God I have the reassurance that my journey will be as He
wants for me, and for that I am grateful to have God in my
life.

  1. I want to share with you a secret.
    It's not really a secret because it was in a little book that came my way almost 25 years ago entitled Holy Ghost.
    It contained some information on meditation and the one that was simple enough for me to use at the time was a breathing meditation of which there are multiples and in which on the in breath is the thought of inhaling "The Good" and on the out breath is the thought of exhaling "The Bad".
    The deeper secret is I do this in the moment of silent meditation that we are invited to before we say and some pray the Serenity Prayer at the opening of our meetings.
    Sometimes I can get a full breath in.
    With good luck I sometimes can get a breath and a half in.
    I'm Harry, a furtive meditator.
