Online Recovery Support – Episode 100

Tonight I want to start the show with something from Virgina Satir that’s all all of us.

In all the world,
there is no one else exactly like me –
everything that comes out of me is authentically mine,
because I alone choose it – I own everything about me – my body, my feelings, my mouth, my voice, all my actions,
whether they be to others or to myself –
I own my fantasies, my dreams, my hopes, my fears –
I own all my triumphs and successes, all my failures and mistakes. Because I own all of me, I can become intimately acquainted with me – by so doing I can love me and be friendly with me in all my parts –
I know there are aspects about myself that puzzle me,
and other aspects that I do not know –
but as long as I am friendly and loving to myself,
I can courageously and hopefully look for solutions to the puzzles and for ways to find out more about me –
However I look and sound, whatever I say and do,
and whatever I think and feel at a given moment in time is authentically me – If later some parts of how I looked, sounded, thought and felt turned out to be unfitting, I can discard that which I feel is unfitting, keep the rest, and invent something new for that which I discarded –
I can see, hear, feel, think, say, and do.
I have the tools to survive, to be close to others, to be productive,
and to make sense and order out of the world of people and things outside of me –
I own me, and therefore I can engineer me –
I am me &

I had no conscious idea that things would turn out as they have. Thank you all so very much for all you have done to support me.

Go Easy on Yourself, Be EASY with you. Love you.

How would you treat yourself if you saw yourself as a developing soul?

Advice from a Monk as to what to do with your life? “Just one thing, Contemplate the meaning of existence.”

Tonight It’s all about you and how grateful I am to you for being a part of our ever growing online family.

A little bit about my history of recovery and my early years working in the “trenches.”

What are we here to learn?

A little bit about the origin or ORS

An awesome story from our friend Rob for receiving an award for being “Spirit in Human Form”

You are Light, Vibration, Love and Energy. You are also, magic. Give what you want to receive
My favorite book that did so much to change my life, Path of Empowerment. It starts from within.

Through experiencing our darkness, we discover what it is that we are not. And in this way, we also discover what it is that we are.

Our practice is not to clear up the mystery, it is to make the mystery clear.

All this and more as we celebrate Episode #100!!
