THE SALTBURN RECOVERY COMMUNITY
Recover over our power, not our wounds. Wounds only identify our dysfunctional behaviour they are the rash of our disease, not the solution to our problem. This statement TOTALLY floored me. Our wounds do not define us, they only identify where we have come from. They are not a label or a badge we have to wear, they belong to our past and do not define our future unless we want them too. Imagine setting the intention to create primary recovery in our lives that support and encourage us to live within our newly found power in Step 3 – CONSCIOUSLY. I think this has always been an unconscious desire of mine, but those words hold a lot of power and understanding of our program, acceptance at depth that the battle is finally over and I have lost.

Bonding over the pain doesn't help us and getting angry or jealous when the other persons starts to step into their power doesn't help us. Have you done that? I know I have, many times.I didn't know the answer to my problem so I keep identifying with the wounds.I couldn't get into my power. When you bond over your wounds only, eventually it feels like you are walking on eggshells in your recovery. If you feel this way, then we can safely say you have not bonded over your power and thus not attracted a recovery that supports and encourages you to live within that power. The flip-side of this desire is that we must also celebrate, support and encourage ourselves to live within the power of our recovery finding the will of that higher power in all things. And THAT can be a scary place. If we live in our power, we have less certainty around what will possibly happen in our lives. Less predictability. We have a feeling of loss of control, unmanageability Step 2.

If we support someone else’s power they might get more attention than us, which can feel threatening. The ego suffers we have to do less shouting, It takes a bold and confident person a person with high self-esteem to bond over each other’s power and encourage the fullness in other persons in the fellowships or outside. So, my question for you today is this: is the recovery in your life supporting your power or discouraging your power? Have you bonded over your wounds only, or have you bonded over being in the mutual power of your recovery? Is your recovery set up so you can thrive? Or does the recovery in your life hold you back? Are you addicted to your wounds and not leaving enough space for your recovery. Are you prepared to live in the solution and not your wounded soul.
 twelve-step epiphany
If you look around, everything is a thought form. When I accepted this as a fact, it set my head spinning. The shape of the field was a thought. The water pump was a thought, and the smallest church in the middle of the field was a thought. Then I started thinking about my own life. The shape of my body is a result of thoughts. My haircut was a thought. The Apple I type on was a thought and it was a thought that decided to buy it. Even typing this post, each and every word – is a thought. Today, as I look out into the world, I don’t just see the world, I see collective thought forms and decisions. The colour of a drink can. The price of petrol. My breakfast. So many thoughts went into the creation of each of these things. I’ll be honest, I know this all sounds pretty rad – but for the last day I feel like I’ve been walking around in the Matrix. The consequences of this to me are staggering. If the world is just a bunch of collective thought forms of others, that means that your thought forms can affect the world too. I’ve come to believe that the power of your program is stronger than reality. Reality is malleable substance that can change over time. And as you gain more and more power in the program, the outside world can change faster and faster. I think one of the true tragedies of the human experience is when someone believes that their circumstance is their identity. That is to say that the way life is now is how it’s always going to be and that who you are can never change. But, nothing is further from the truth. Your life can change no matter what’s happened up until now. The past doesn’t have to be your future unless you focus on the past and keep acting the same way. The journey is to take one small step, change one thought at a time – bring your thoughts and your actions round to the recovery you WISH to create. Don’t focus just on how things are – focus on how you want them to be and then get about making life the way you want it to be. Your life today is the sum of all the choices you’ve made up until now – what your life will be is determined by the choices you make from this moment forward in your recovery
THE EVER PASSING PRESENT MOMENT
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?”
