“… we recoiled from meditation and prayer as obstinately as the scientist who refused to perform a certain experiment lest it prove his pet theory wrong.” – Twelve Steps & Twelve Traditions, Page 97
I feel like I’ve been rehashing the same concept over and over again in several of my inspirational texts, but I’m just cracking open the books. I was a non-believer until I was 30, and after 10 years of refuting the existence of God, watching others who seemed at peace and happier believing in what surely couldn’t be real, I relented and joined the other team—the one that had faith.
Tough? Oh yeah. My intellect yelled “What are you doing?!!!! Don’t believe the imaginary fairy tale!!!!” But I decided to believe anyway. And guess what? I LOVE believing in God! Call me a religionist, fanatic, convert, or anything you want. I’m ok with that, because my connection to my Higher Power rocks my world!
And when I thank the universe (pray) and spend time in gratitude (meditate)… ILML!
