We seeno good purpose for pain. It seems to be a pointless exercisein suffering. If someone happens to mention spiritual growthto us while we're in pain, we most likely snort in disgust andwalk away, thinking we've never encountered a moreinsensitive person.But what if human beings didn't feel pain-either physicalor emotional? Sound like an ideal world? Not really. If weweren't capable of feeling physical pain, we wouldn't knowwhen to blink foreign particles out of our eyes; we wouldn'tknow when to stop exercising; we wouldn't even know whento roll over in our sleep. We would simply abuse ourselves forlack of a natural warning system.The same holds true for emotional pain. How would we haveknown that our lives had become unmanageable if we hadn'tbeen in pain? Just like physical pain, emotional pain lets usknow when to stop doing something that hurts.But pain is not only a motivating factor. Emotional painprovides a basis for comparison when we are joyful. Wecouldn't appreciate joy without knowing pain.Just for today: I will accept pain as a necessary part of life. Iknow that to whatever level I can feel pain, I can also feel joy.Just For Today Daily Meditation is the property of Narcotics Anonymous ©1991 by World Service Office Inc.~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*Get Involved In Service*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~If you are enjoying this daily recovery email,Please pass on 12 Step Soul Food For The Spirit to your online friends,"We can only keep what we have by giving it away."If you have received this as a forwardand would like to subscribe please emailme at YOUnMEnHP@...Thanks, In loving service, Scott :)~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*Get A Sponsor*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~Food For Thought MeditationEach Day a New Beginning (Women) MeditationTouchtones (Men) MeditationMeditation of the DayViking Thought of the DayElder's Meditation of the DaySober Thought of the DayDaily ZenGrapevine Story TodayDaily Motivator~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*Use Your Sponsor*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~Emotional BalanceMade direct amends to such people wherever possible, . . .TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 83When I survey my drinking days, I recall many people whommy life touched casually, but whose days I troubled throughmy anger and sarcasm.

The only amends Ican make to those untraceable individuals, the only "changesfor the better" I can offer, are indirect amends made to otherpeople, whose paths briefly cross mine.

Thought for the DayA.A. will lose some of its effectiveness if I do not do my share.Where am I failing? Are there some things I do not feel likedoing? Am I held back by self-consciousness or fear? Self-consciousness is a form of pride. It is a fear that somethingmay happen to you. What happens to you is not very important.The impression you make on others does not depend so much onthe kind of a job you do as on your sincerity and honesty ofpurpose. Am I holding back because I am afraid of not makinga good impression?Meditation for the DayLook to God for the true power that will make you effective. Seeno other wholly dependable supply of strength. That is the secretof a truly effective life. And you, in your turn, will be used to helpmany others find effectiveness. Whatever spiritual help you need,whatever spiritual help you desire for others, look to God. Seekthat God's will be done in your life and seek that your will conformsto His. Failures come from depending too much on your own strength.Prayer for the DayI pray that I may feel that nothing good is too much for me if Ilook to God for help. I pray that I may be effective through Hisguidance."Twenty-Four Hours A Day" is a © Copyrighted book ofHazelden Foundation.

It's called Be WhoYou Are.For some of us, this can be frightening. What would happen ifwe felt what we felt, said what we wanted, became firm aboutour beliefs, and valued what we needed? What would happenif we let go of our camouflage of adaptation? What wouldhappen if we owned our power to be ourselves?Would people still like us? Would they go away? Would theybecome angry?There comes a time when we become willing and ready to takethat risk. To continue growing, and living with ourselves, werealize we must liberate ourselves. It becomes time to stopallowing ourselves to be so controlled by others and theirexpectations and be true to ourselves - regardless of thereaction of others.Before long, we begin to understand. Some people may goaway, but the relationship would have ended anyway. Somepeople stay and love and respect us more for taking the risk ofbeing whom we are. We begin to achieve intimacy, andrelationships that work.We discover that who we are has always been good enough.It is who we were intended to be.Today, I will own my power to be myself.©1990, Hazelden Foundation.
