Consider Saint Francis‘ simple plea:
Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love. Where there is injury, pardon. Where there is doubt, faith. Where there is despair, hope. Where there is sadness, joy.
Grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled, as to console. To be understood, as to understand. To be loved, as to love. For it is giving, that we receive, it is in pardoning, that we are pardoned, it is in dying that we are born again.
Consider contemplation and meditation for added Spiritual insight.
Meditation can be a special form of spiritual healing.
Healing meditation can be simple personal contemplation. We can create our own internal guidance, our own spiritual fire.
“Great becomes the fruit, great the advantage of earnest contemplation, when it is set round with upright conduct. Great becomes the fruit, great the advantage of intellect, when it is set round with earnest contemplation.
The mind set round with intelligence is set quite free from intoxications; from the intoxication of sensuality, from the intoxication of delusion, from the intoxication of ignorance.”
Spiritual quotes provide mind, body, and spirit with sustenance.
Spiritual nourishment has come to us from many sources. Some often very early in life.
“Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray thee, Lord, thy child to keep: Thy love guard me through the night and wake me with the morning light.” Bedtime Prayer
The highest good is like water. Water gives life to the ten thousand things and does not strive. It flows in places men reject and so is like the Tao.
In dwelling, be close to the land. In meditation, go deep in the heart. In dealing with others, be gentle and kind. In speech, be true. In ruling, be just. In business, be competent. In action, watch the timing. No fight: No blame.
Spiritual living is enhanced by personal affirmations.
“Lord, open our eyes, that we may see you in our brothers and sisters. Lord open our ears, that we may hear the cries of the hungry, the cold, the frightened, the depressed. Lord, open our hearts, that we may love each other as you love us. Renew in us your spirit Lord, free us and make us one.
Prayers for Addiction-Recovery and Spiritual Renewal
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change. The courage to change the things I can. And the wisdom to know the difference. Grant me patience with the things that take time. Tolerance of the struggles of others that may be different from my own. Appreciation for all I have and the willingness to get up and try again. One day at a time.
The Serenity Prayer
Our Native Americans have a long and rich history of Affirmations and Prayers.
Weave for us a garment of brightness; May the warp be the light of morning, may the weft be the red of evening, may the fringes be the falling rain. May the border be the standing rainbow. Thus weave for us a garment of brightness. That we may walk fittingly where birds sing, That we may walk fittingly where grass is green, O our Mother the Earth, O our father the sky.
Daily Positive-Affirmations help keep our sobriety aligned toward the serenity of recovery.
An excellent example of Positive-Affirmations are when they are statements of your actual personal intent.
For example: “Today, I will…Finish the affirmative statement with an intended planned addiction recovery behavior.”
A Hindu Affirmation:
“From the unreal lead me to the real; From darkness lead me to the light; From death lead me to deathlessness.”
Old testament: The 23 psalm is an affirmation of assurance.
The lord is my shepard; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; He leadth me beside still waters. He restoreth my soul; Yea, thought I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for thou art with me; Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
