THURS



todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for the concept of spirituality.  I went to a meeting yesterday where we discussed what we feel it means.  Very interesting. 
For this alcoholic, my spirituality is incompatible with drinking.  For me to remain sober, I am sure that I must have a Higher Power, whatever I wish to call it/him/her.  Having said that, secondly, I must do my very best to adhere to some spiritual principles.  ie: honesty (on all levels), faith in my HP, willingness, integrity, discipline, compassion for others and most certainly, service to others.

So, today, I put the question to you.  Leave a reply or comment if you can.

What is spirituality to you?

If I try to be like him, who will be like me?

Spirituality for me has a lot of facets: learning more about myself through the help of my Higher Power, a deeper appreciation of all things and people around me, expanding conscious compassion, and trusting a power greater than myself. Good question.

For me, it is living in conformity with God's will.
