ACCEPTANCE MONTH: DAY 28: “The meditative mind sees disagreeable or agreeable things with equanimity, patience, and good-will. Transcendent knowledge is seeing reality in utter simplicity.”― Jean-Yves Leloup

I love that when I meditate, I can see all aspects of some situations. I recently saw something with clarity that had been seen by me for a very, very long time in a different light.

Astrologers are saying that we are now in the Age of Aquarius. This is it! So, it is opening us up in new ways, so they say. Interesting information. I read about these things, because there is SO much to know in this Universe that I cannot fathom with my feeble human mind. All I know for sure is that I have to remain open and flexible in my thinking and way of living.

I know too that I am not attached to the stories I once could not let go of. Thank goodness for spiritual growth! I am not where I was, nor am I where I believe I will go. But, I am grateful for the journey. Step 1 has always been a gateway for me to see where I can use some more growth. It goes on and on and on and on. I find that the more I do this work of recovery and healing, the more happiness and freedom I experience. Why on earth do so many people stop and remain in their shit for so long? Hard to say, but I am moving past this space and into the one that comes for me next. I love it!

And, the truth is that it DOES get simpler and simpler to see Truth. It is wonderful and I cannot get enough. Today I am grateful for what has been shown to me and all the healing I have been given thus far. I know that Spirit continues to develop the more I am willing to drop the BS I loved to carry around for so long. Delusion is the only thing that blocks me from growth.

May I always be willing to know the truth and live it and love it. That is my ongoing prayer. And we are the ones who judge and label what is agreeable and what is disagreeable. No one else can force us to buy into that judgment.

I am a therapist and counselor with long-term recovery from addictions and personal trauma. My writing reflects these experiences and the road I have traveled in 12-Step recovery settings, along with the work I have done for over 30 years in the field. My love of dolphins includes the stories of them being healers in places all over the world. I long to offer every broken spirit and body the experience of a healing hug. May my words and stories inform, uplift and delight your spirit and soothe your weary heart.
