Sunday 30th June 2013

If it is a quiet day, trust the stillness.

If it is a day of action, trust the activity.

If it is time to wait, trust the pause.

If it is time to receive that which we have been waiting for, trust that it will happen clearly and with power, and receive the gift in joy.

(As posted yesterday by the wonderful Vic- quoting Melody Beattie from the Language of letting go. (Thanks Vic) 


fudoshin: checkin

Please do not leave advice or feedback.  Thank you.  Prayers welcome. 


I need to fix my sleeping schedule. Today I woke up at 3:00.  After the
alarm went off I did some stretches, and got up at around 3:03pm.  Tomorrow I'm waking up by 1:30pm because I have an appointment at 2pm.  Tuesday
I'm waking up by 12:30pm, etc.  Until I start waking up at 8am again.  I
think I may have an unconscious desire to isolate so that I can get a
vacation from reality, but sleeping when it's light out is really not
fun, and having to be awake at night is also not fun.  Missing phone
calls that are important is also not fun.  While I may be looking
for a break from people, I prefer to be sleeping at night.

So I'm going to have to get ready for sleep by 4:20am.  Oh well. I've set my alarm clock to go off at 1:21pm, because I need to eat something or have some tea, before I leave.I tod myself these would be some tired days; and that is what it is.

clement ci - day 232 attempting abstinence, 152 from self

Abstinence from unplanned time.

  • The one thing, the only thing, i can do impulsively is write something on my todo list.
  • The one thing, the only thing, i can do off plan is recovery, something to maintain my sobriety, when tempted. I have come to believe that it is more important to maintain sobriety than to get things done.

Abstinence from relying on self. AA Big Book says to rely on God. Quoted in my bookmarks : scroll down to "AA Big Book on fears : relying on God not self-reliance:"

  • I have come to believe that it is more important to maintain sobriety of relying on God than to get things done.
    • "15 Points" point 5 says:
      5. Develop and rehearse a daily plan of thinking and acting by which you will live that day relying on God, regardless of what may upset you or how hard the old urge to rely on self may hit you.

      My Plan is this:

      1. read "15 Points"
      2. Meditate for 5 min on the attributes of God

When we retire at night, we constructively review our day (BB).

  • Were we resentful, selfish, dishonest or afraid?
    - yes twice
  • Do we owe an apology?
  • Have we kept something to ourselves which should be discussed with another person at once?
  • Were we kind and loving toward all?
    - not all day
  • What could we have done better?
    - not gone off plan at bedtime
  • Were we thinking of ourselves most of the time?
  • Or, were we thinking of what we could do for others, of what we could pack into the stream of life?
