It’s hard to believe that a month has passed since you made your transition from this material life. I miss you so much. You were a good brother. Always keeping tabs on us and sharing all the moments of your life. Joyfully celebrating our good moments. Compassionately commiserating our bad moments.
Excerpt from Dynamics for Living by Charles Fillmore:
“In the Old Testament the tithe or tenth is mentioned as a reasonable and just return to the Lord by way of acknowledging Him as the source of supply. Tithing is the giving of a tenth of one’s supply to God and His work. Tithing is a tacit agreement that man is in partnership with God in the conduct of his finances. This leads to confidence and
assurance that whatever is done will bring increase of some kind.
“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be. When I let go of what I have, I receive what I need.”
― Tao Te Ching
I was working in the kitchen today, preparing my meals for the next few days and it occurred to me that what I was doing was rather unusual in this day and age. I had mentioned it in one of my previous blog posts and wanted to expand on it. I’m not talking about the actual act of preparing the meals instead of going out to eat or even the whole foods style of cooking. I’m talking about the reason behind why I had chosen and was preparing these particular foods.
I thought I’d put a list of the resources together that played a role in my recovery in hopes that they might help someone else. Some were calming and comforting, some were brain fodder that gave me something to think about when I couldn’t be reading and thus kept me from going to dark places, and some were purely out of interest.
