Daily Recovery Quotes – April 4

April 4

AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote

Every day is a day when we must carry the vision of God’s will into all of our activities. ‘How can I best serve Thee – Thy will ( not mine ) be done.’ These are thoughts which must go with us constantly. We can exercise our will power along this line all we wish. It is the proper use of the will. – Pg. 85 – Into Action

Hour To Hour – Book – Quote

Sometimes it just doesn’t seem worth it. What does this new life, seemingly full of discipline and depravation, offer us anyway? There are many promises that only time can bring. Until then we must cherish our new freedom–freedom from the expense, cravings, and cost to our personal lives in that old chemical world.

Let me see the bondage of my addiction and remember not the questionable good times but the very real chains that bound me.

Shifting My Feeling States

When I shift my own thinking and feeling states, I shift my body states as well, because emotions travel through me as body chemicals. In a way, I am what I think about all day. I can shift what I am feeling by consciously changing my thoughts and I can shift what I’m thinking, by consciously evening out my emotional states. I will place my attention on my heart and imagine myself in a calm and serene state. As my heart calms, so does my body. When I can consciously breathe in and out of my heart zone, and imagine that part of me entering a state of ease and serenity, I actually contribute to my emotional, psychological and physical health.

I calm my heart

– Tian Dayton PhD

Pocket Sponsor – Book – Quote

In our fellowship, there are always those who feel they have the ultimate wisdom to impart to you. These highly verbose people may set your nerves on edge with incredibly self-serving ‘words of wisdom.’ They may be full of themselves, but they are probably not trying to hurt you.

If I judge people, I have no time to love them.

We came to AA to save our ass, and found out our soul was attached.

Time for Joy – Book – Quote

Today I am open to all of who I am. As I bring my attention to all of me, without judgment, I grow in wisdom and freedom.

If you can’t turn over everything, turn over ‘right now.’ – Tom W.
