LOVE MONTH: DAY 25: “If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.”― Mother Teresa

This quote speaks to the heart and soul of Step 12. We forget that we are here for only one purpose, to be of maximum usefulness to our fellows. Service….in every area. If we all practiced this, there would be no bread lines or hunger, no children locked up in cages, no animals locked up in cages, no war, no killing, no EGO!

On a day that many cultures recognize as a day of Peace and Joy, we are so far away from these things. We are so incredibly self-centered and selfish about how we care for the planet, its people and all its other inhabitants. We can be better…always striving to be better.

Lets all practice this maxim today. To find ways to be better people…we know how…we just get too focused on self and forget we truly DO belong to each other. Blessings and Namaste!

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.
