Happiness is such an elusive state. How often do my
"prayers" for other involve "hidden" prayers for my own agenda?
How often is my search for happiness a boulder in the path
of growth for another, or even myself? Seeking growth through
humility and acceptance brings things that appear to be anything
but good, wholesome and vital. Yet in looking back, I can
see that pain, struggles and setbacks have all contributed
eventually to serenity through growth in the program.
I ask my Higher Power to help me
not cause another's lack of growth today -- or my own.
