“The Word”

“Recovery is an awakening of work that was not completed when one was little…a coming into one’s own. It is an opportunity to resume a process of development that was sidetracked, possibly by not accepting needs as legitimate or not finding healthy ways to meet them. And so recovery is a developmental process of finding and building a new self. When you are in recovery, you give birth to a new self. Many initially think that recovery means a move from bad to good. They think that being addicted is evidence of shameful neediness, of deep and lasting failures. Instead, recovery is a move from false to real. It is being real that now guides rather than one’s efforts of being good or bad. To finally know yourself as a BEING underneath the thinker, the stillness underneath the mental noise, the love and joy underneath the pain, is freedom , salvation and enlightenment…a process of recovery.” XO
