My Higher Power is.....
A vast source of energy that swirls around me
The swaying of trees in the wind
The ripples on the water
The moon rising in the sky
The sun on my shoulders
Within me and of me
I feel that energy on the trail through the forest, I feel it in the flowing river, I feel it in the night sky of scintillating stars, I feel it in the warm sunshine, a summer breeze . . . and I feel it in the loving and caring nature of other human beings.
All these things let me know that there is so much beyond the small sphere of myself. When I am in the midst of some character defect such as self-pity and fear, I can look around me and see that there is much more to be grateful for than to whine or rail about. Recovery has made me aware. And with awareness comes healing.
What is your Higher Power?
