The recovery I can create with my thinking is not real recovery.
When I think I know, I have already lost the understanding.
When I let go of the need to know how to get and stay sober, I can see the solution.
When I am obsessed with formulas and shortcuts, I only see the problem.
It is my fixed way of thinking that keeps me trapped.
Addiction and recovery are both found within.
I already possess both and have everything I will ever need.
Tonight, we talk about the Meditation Verse, “I Already Possess Recovery.”
