SERENITY

Give me, kind Heaven, a private station ~ a mind serene for contemplation.

~ Alexander Pope 

Serenity must be a permanent state of mind, not a temporary experience. We know that some degree of serenity must be present before Acceptance is possible. Acceptance is an ongoing act required for any success in a Recovery program. Therefore, it is obvious that we can’t afford to settle for merely feeling at peace.

Peace of mind is a mood we can create for ourselves only. Peace leaves as an attitude changes. Serenity is a life-time possession because it is not only with us but also within us. It cannot be taken away.

Serenity is positive. It is not a placid or negative state of being. It is a positive force for good.

Today, I’ll remember serenity comes and lasts when I stay tuned to God’s will and the principles of the Program.
