Rev. Shawn's Weekly Message  “1st Week of Advent “Hope”"

Hey Everybody,

On Sunday we spoke of “hope” being about the future and we need to get more in the now.  Even if it’s, “Right now, I’m hoping for a better future.”  It’s not the best example but it does help to bring us into the present.

I was thinking of my early healing in Twelve Step recovery.  Something that got me into the present were the promises that would come in the future.  I hope that makes sense.  I was on step one, but I heard someone read the ninth step promises and I thought, “I want those active and present in my life and I can’t have them unless I do the first eight steps thoroughly!”  That got me to consciously work with steps one, and gradually I worked my way to step two and so on.  Not once did I work the steps in the future.  When I did them, I did them now and then maintained them as I continued to work through the present.  

These are the 9th Step Promises: “If we are painstaking about this phase of our development we will be amazed before we are halfway through. We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness. We will not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it. We will comprehend the word Serenity and we will know peace. No matter how far down the scale we have gone, we will see how our experience can benefit others. That feeling of uselessness and self-pity will disappear. We will lose interest in selfish things and gain interest in our fellows. Self-seeking will slip away. Our whole attitude and outlook on life will change, fear of people and economic insecurity will leave us. We will intuitively know how to handle situations which used to baffle us. We will suddenly realize that God is doing for us what we could not do for ourselves. Are these unrealistic promises? We think not. They are being fulfilled among us sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. They will materialize if we work for them.”  

So while we may work toward a great future, we can only do it now.

Let’s affirm together, “The Superconscious Mind is awake in me now!”

Happy Holiday Season,

Rev. Shawn
