I Have Found The Words
I have read The Secret and am now on my second reading. The second time around, new words seem to have appeared on the pages. It’s really neat because each time I open the book it has something new to say to me. I find myself using it like a daily inspirational tool. First thing in the morning, I have some quiet time to myself before everybody else gets up, so I take my copy of The Secret (and another book that I’ve been using for twenty years now) and get my mind in a healthy direction.
See, I’ve never been much of a morning person and since I changed some of my ways many years ago I still need just a touch of direction. Adding The Secret to my repertoire seems to fill any gaps that may have been present in my morning meditation.
Today as I opened the Secret some words jumped up at me that I hadn’t used much. Although being grateful is a major part of my recovery I often forget the words to actually say out loud. The Secret has given me examples to use and they work quite well. Two small words can fill my mind and thus occupy the space that the stinkin’ thinkin’ was taking up: THANK YOU.
As I was brushing my teeth this morning after doing my quiet time before work, I guess I was hurting enough that those two words came to my mind and I found myself saying out loud Thank You for this toothbrush! Thank you for these slippers on my feet! Thank you for the soap in the basin, and on and on and on. I was saying thank you for the tiniest things. All the while as I looked back on my morning I wasn’t doing any of that stinkin’ thinkin’. For some reason I just can’t think of two things at once. Funny how that works huh?
Reading the Secret has really made some dynamite changes in my life. Today is Saturday and on Monday morning I have to make some phone calls that Im not looking forward to. However today at this moment I KNOW things are going to work out well. There was a time that I would have worried myself into a drunken binge. Not today, Thank You.
I am so grateful to have found The Secret!
