Take a blessing with you wherever you go.
You have been blessed, so bless others.

Such stores of blessings are awaiting you in the months and years that lie ahead.
Pass on your blessings.

Blessing can and does go around the world, passed on from one person to another.
Shed a little blessing in the heart of one person.

That person is cheered to pass it on, and so, God’s vitalizing, joy-giving message travels on. Be a transmitter of God’s blessings.–24Hours | More…

Active addiction was no picnic; many of us barely came out of it alive. The path to freedom and spiritual growth begins where bitterness ends, with acceptance.

In isolating us, addiction forced us to seek fellowship. Addiction caused us to suffer, and gave us the experience needed to help others, help no one else was so uniquely suited to offer.

In forcing us to our knees, addiction gave us the opportunity to surrender to the care of a loving Higher Power. The fact remains that we addicts already have this disease—and further, that without this disease we may never have embarked on our spiritual journey.

Thousands of people search their whole lives for what we have found in Narcotics Anonymous: fellowship, a sense of purpose, and conscious contact with a Higher Power.
Today, we are grateful for everything that has brought us this blessing. –Just For Today | More…

In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth,
and have begun striving for ourselves. –Buddha

The Elders say we should pray to the East every morning. Just try it! Get up early in the morning, watch the sun and listen to the morning sounds, the birds, the winds; smell the air, feel the breeze and the warmth of the sun. Your mind will expand and you will experience oneness with the Great Spirit. You’ll realize how much the Creator loves you! Just try it! –Elders Meditations | More…

Troubles nearly always make us look to God; His blessings are apt to make us look elsewhere. The teaching of the Sermon on the Mount is, in effect — Narrow all your interests until the attitude of mind and heart and body is concentration on Jesus Christ. –Oswald Chambers

Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself, and know that everything in life has purpose. There are no mistakes, no coincidences, all events are blessings given to us to learn from. –Elisabeth Kubler Ross
