The Earth was made round so that we could not see what lies ahead of us.
– R. Keith Gill
It is so often that I find myself concentrating very hard on developing a sixth sense with which I would be able to know the future before it happens. I am so often afraid of the future – afraid that I will not be cared for, afraid that I'll be alone, afraid I will suffer – that I try to find a way to know what will happen so that I can “fix” it before it happens. The truth is, even if I knew what would happen, I couldn't fix it because I can't know what the far-reaching effects of any decision will be.
Now, I am still afraid the future. But the difference is, in recovery, I am able to accept my fear and make the conscious decision to turn my will and my life over to the care of my Higher Power and trust that all will be well.
