Relax…

“We relax and take it easy. We do not struggle”
These are powerful words from the Big Book. They tie into the reading I did this morning from the “Just for Today” trifold: “Just for Today I will adjust myself to what is, and not try to adjust everything to my own desires. I will take my ‘luck’ as it comes, and fit myself to it.”  It is when I am struggling that I have lost my connection or trust in a power greater than myself. It is easy to fall back on relying on my own unsteady willpower…after all, it was my standard for so long!  When I find myself becoming anxious or afraid I now see these as warning signs that I am off track in program.  Pausing and taking a deep cleansing breath is an immediate way of centering myself with HP. Then my soul is open and ready to probe for the next right thing my Higher Power seeks for me to discover. It works if I work it. Relax…
