The twelve-step epiphany
When we discuss our spiritual growth, we are dwelling within a realm that appears irrational. Human reason and intelligence have been evolving over the centuries, but they're still undeveloped to be able to decode and decipher the true nature of reality and consciousness. When thinking logically, we tend to think in mostly "if, then" statements. If I'm a good person, then good things will happen to me. If I follow all the rules, then I will be rewarded. If something bad happened to me, then there must be something wrong with me. If I experience pain, then what's happening is bad. If I experience pleasure, then what's happening is good. But the problem with human logic, understanding, and our point of view is that they're extremely limited.

If we truly understood this, we wouldn't be so quick to apply meaning to the events of our lives. Just because we feel good or bad in the moment doesn't mean what's happening is good or bad. When I was drinking alcohol, in the moment I felt good, unaware of the long-term effects of my actions. The nature of recovery is often counter-intuitive. What's bad is actually good and what's good is actually bad. This isn't a blanket universal truth, but it is something I would like for you to consider. Also, it's important to mention that even the dance between good and bad is perfect. We need opposites to learn, to grow and to evolve in our recovery. I would like for a moment for you to consider that the worst things in your life, seen from a new perspective, are actually your greatest gifts in recovery! I know it sounds impossible, but what if you were sent major suffering , not only to learn from it, but to help others, too? Through the lens of human reason, horrible things happen. Through the lens of recovery and understanding, horrible things happen as a path for us to collectively wake up, one person, one light bulb, at a time.

What gift would you like to claim for your darkest hour? What treasure is in the cave of your fear waiting to be seen? How can you show up with even more Love in your heart and give it to you and all those you meet? What new and empowering meaning can you express so that you can start to live in your life? The choice is yours. Who you are is more powerful than any recovery story you tell about your life, yet the story you tell about your life is what you get to experience. You have to journey threw the pain of recovery to experience its joy.
