434 Day 34 of a 40-Day Practice


MY MISSION STATEMENT - I am devoted, dedicated, committed to experiencing Your Presence, Father consciously, consistently within me and everywhere present. I want to know, to realize, to live for Your Will for me, empowered by Your loving grace. My mission in now clear, I need, I want to share all I am given with whomever You Will, Father. I look to You as my only Source to provide me with everyone and everything it takes to carry out the Mission You gave me. Thank You.


Very early this morning I awakened from a restless sleep feeling guilty because I had done something I was guilty of. Once again, I fell short, missing my mission mark. I believe our Program is Spiritual, but not as an organized religion. Most often I think of my wrongs as defects or missing the mark not sinful. However at times the word sinner feels correct no matter distasteful it is. When I realize I was wrong or I did a wrong or I did not do a right the name I called it was not as important as my owning my part. As soon as possible I remind myself the wrong was not caused by another person or an event outside myself, so I can choose once again.

My primary transformation prep work is taking full responsibility, ownership of the core belief within my personal "reality". The transformation from my disease of alcoholism took healing turn when I realized and accepted once an alcoholic always an alcoholic. I did not drink because of this or that experience or to face life or escape it. I drink because that is what an alcoholic does. When I accepted I could no longer blame or explain my alcoholism away I was open to the grace of our/my Father transforming my disease into an asset.

I pray I have accepted full responsibility and ownership of my personal "reality" concerning my wrongs. I missed my mark, and I failed consciously and consistently living; Spiritually, mentally, physically, emotionally and socially what I believe is my mission. I believe my mission and Your Will for me Father are one. I now ask for more than forgiveness, I ask for a Spiritual Transformation. I ask that my defects, wrongs be transformed into assets for Your service, Father. Thank You.


What is your major transformation prep work?

Do you agree that no real change can take place without full responsibility, ownership of your personal "reality"? Why?
