Serendipity Spiritual Journey “Pay Forward” #8

Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is – Serendipity Spiritual Journey. I’ve been a worker most of my life. When I was growing up, I tried to earn my dad’s love; it didn’t work. I’ve been trying to earn our Father’s love by doing the things devoted, committed workers do. In A.A. I go about doing service, working the Steps and Traditions, writing and doing workbooks and workshops, writing these daily affirmations, I’m endlessly doing. I want everyone’s love and respect. Then why don’t act like 24/7? Once a work-a-hol-ic, always a work-a-hol-ic. Part of today’s daily prep-work was a reading that reminded me of my trudging “the Road of Happy destiny.” “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and worried about many things. There is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part, and it will not be taken from her” (Like 10:41-12). Mary’s whole attention was focused on the Master. Her love moves her faith to a deeper level of listening and surrendering, and its fruit, interior freedom. By practicing A.A.’s spiritual principles in all my affairs I am learning to do the Mary-thing. By the grace of our Father [unearned] there is a unique place for each of us on this Serendipity Spiritual Journey. It is not a process but an awakening; the revealing of our individual mission. Let’s look for the presence of good in each other, knowing there’s a purpose. Thy Love, Love Thy Will be done.
