A gift for the New Year. The ideas and insights shared with you will help you with your connection to your higher power, to your spiritual source itself. You'll discover your greatest potential released not by seeking, struggling, or trying to please but, effortlessly instead. The guidance provided here will take you by the hand and gently lead you to the fulfilment of your deepest longings for happiness, inner peace, spiritual connectedness, even enlightenment. Recovery is not a pipe dream not some distant realisation that you might one day achieve or even your birthright. It is the you, you as you really are right Now! It is your higher power giving you a reborn life away beyond the facade the public, social "you"…and infinitely more than the "you" you see in the mirror. If knowing and living an authentic life is your greatest desire.if finding and following a happy, healthy, spiritually-connected recovery is the longing of your program, then stick around. You'll quickly discover that your higher power is not difficult to find but becomes impossible to ignore, and that the secrets of the program are not secrets at all. The directions are written in plain english.The Buddha used the word “anata” to refer to “no self.” What did he mean? 

Detachment is the word, or, to put it another way, the art of “Letting Go.” The message described in step one the misunderstood term of powerlessness

“But let go of what?” you ask.
An illusion of permanence. And, what is impermanent?
Anything to which the little “me” would attach itself. The “little me,” as Eckhart Tolle called the ego or “the dog,” as the philosopher Neitzsche referred to it, can attach itself to almost anything, even to its-self. Anything you can see, touch, taste, smell, feel, or create is impermanent. Nothing remains for very long. Which is why the widespread western practice of embalming dead bodies, entombing them in concrete and metal containers in the ground, is an indication of our widespread attachment to the illusion of permanence the lie that the ego can live for ever, its just sleeping.

Until I detach from all these things until I can let go, I remain incarcerated in a prison of my own making, and not free to simply be or to enjoy my recovery. Which explains much of my worry, fretting and anxiety even now. It explains why I live in fear…live with regrets…worry about tomorrow…and, consequently, create a hell for myself here on earth.
This is a big game we’re playing, And, what I don’t know is that I am the one on the losing side of that game.I have already lost.
Freedom, “enlightenment” simply refers to that life-long and cultivated capacity to live from a place of “no self,” no attachments or, All attachments.
Death…detachment…denial of self, the little me in me – which is not evil. Don’t make that mistake. The ego is not something to deny or to fight against as if some little schizophrenic part of you that must be expunged. The little me is you, just not the better you.
How is one free oneself of the little me ?
Why?

There’s no need. Which is the irony. By, only embracing yourself or, by starting the process of being able “to love yourself,” are you free of the self. Indeed a mystery. You win, not be defeating, but in the surrendering. It is this irony that life is recovered, not by defeating one’s enemies or, in this case, the ego, but by surrendering.

You only succeed in living the life that the Buddha pointed to by learning the art of letting go. That’s all “detachment” means. Turn loose. Be free..
Think you have? Think you have arrived? That you’re now a “spiritual giant?” That you’ve completely detached and are living an enlightened or abundant life?

“Go spend a week with your parents,” said Ram Dass and then you’ll see just how enlightened or how “saved” you are.
Think you’ve arrived at a higher level of consciousness? That you have detached from all illusions of permanence?
Then, consider this…
How do you feel whenever you get to work and realise you’ve left your cell phone on the kitchen counter?
Don’t think you’re still attached? How do you feel when someone questions the things you’ve been taught to believe?
Why do we have to believe that our way is right as if, believing in those “beliefs” you have recovery and everyone else is wrong? Come on, wake up. Know that no belief could ever be your higher power. So, do not make your belief your God. Become malleable. Do not be attached to anything, no matter how precious the words may be. Remember they’re just words.

Think you’re not attached to the Big Book as “the Word of God?” Think again. That is, if you want to be free. Really free. Saved. Enlightened. Or, whatever you’d like to call it. The word isn’t important. The reality toward which it points is and does that’s the focus.
“I want to be free,” you say. “But how?”
Don’t even try.
“But why?”

Because you are free already. That is the mystery of the program. The mystery of enlightenment, as Buddha finally discovered. You do not achieve enlightenment by struggling, fighting, or seeking. You become enlightened when you know you are ready. That is the real message, even the meaning of grace.
This is why Rumi, the Sufi poet, said to his followers: “The prison door is wide open already. So, why do you remain inside?”
