“I’m beginning to enjoy the view and the cool breeze on my face with my delightful constant companion, my Higher Power.” – 12 Step Prayer Book, The Bike Ride
This is my favorite story about God. Imagining my Higher Power on a tandem bike with me peddling and my HP fully in control of our destination is the best way for me to live my life. God-Guided, so to speak. Rather than me trying to create my destiny, I get to co-create a life with God.
I’m co-creating with God when my actions are filled with love, my intent is kindness and compassion, I’m being honest with myself and others, I’m living with integrity, I’m helping others because I truly care about their well-being, I’m staying out of self-pity and resentment, and I’m making a conscious decision to love my life.
In order to give myself the best chance possible to co-create with God, I take time out each day to plug into source, to read from inspirational books, to take my inventory, to share recovery and gratitude with others, to exercise, to attend to my various responsibilities, and to try to be the best man I can possibly be.
Co-creating with God is magical. It brings peace, harmony, happiness, fun, laughter, joy, smiles and wonderment into my life and the lives of others. And every time I’m co-creating with God, ILML!
