Change – a meditation


When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.

Lao Tzu

In becoming active in my own recovery, I have found that I regularly feel resistance to letting go of my old habits though I realize that they are no longer working for me. I feel fear that if I let go of these behaviors, that I will no longer know who I am or what I should do. However, I realize that unless I let go of those old tendencies, I will not have room for the new ones. Though I fear change, I am able to let go and let God and trust that everything will work out for the better.

    I saw this quote on Facebook today and thought, “That would make a good meditation prompt for The Recovery Show.” I see you beat me to it.

    I connect it to Step 7, “Humbly asked him to remove our shortcomings.” When I accept myself with humility, when I recognize that I am who I am, with all my gems and warts, then I can truly let go and ask my Higher Power to help me change. As long as I hold onto my faults, by denying them, I cannot become what I might be.
