IF THE ONLY PRAYER YOU SAID IN YOUR LIFE WAS "THANK YOU", THAT WOULD SUFFICE. ~Meister Eckhart

Your heart knows in silence the secrets of the days and the nights. ~Kahlil Gibran
.
Today I am grateful...
  • with the thermostat set on 75º the air conditioner is actually shutting off for a few minutes
  • for a little more ability to observe when my mind wanders into dangerous territory
  • for the security of sobriety, the fellowship, of having a sponsor; the security of knowing all is as it should be
  • that I can live this day with hope for a bright future
  • that today I do not have to live in the past
  • for the ease of letting go

Stop listening to your mind. You will not find the truth there. You may find the answer, but it will not be the truth unless it coincides with the answer in your heart.

You think there is more to know about life than this, but there is not. Your heart holds the key. Your heart holds the wisdom. Your heart holds the future. Your mind knows nothing but the past. It imagines the future will be just like yesterday, so it makes it decisions based on that. Only your heart can see beyond memory's horizon. ~N.D. Walsch

I've had my A/C on 75 since just after Hayden left. Can't wait to see if it makes a difference in the bill. And it shuts off often (too).

I love that Kahlil Gibran quote. It's immediately calming to me. I wrote it down to post near my desk. Thanks for the smile today hon. (Hugs)Indigo

I just spent the weekends in the mountains where the nights were 45 degrees.

Not gloating (much)...

I'm still working out the heart/head thing. I think it's my task until I get to push up daisies.

I wish you blessings and comfort...

I like the quote about stop listening to my mind. It has gotten me in trouble so many times. When my head and heart are in alignment then I'm okay.
