This is the trick to staying well, isn’t it: to feel the sun even in the dark. To not lose the truth of things when they go out of view. To grow just the same……To know there is still peace, even when we are suffering.

There are those who do not realise
that one day we all must die.
But those who do realise this
settle their quarrels.

At every moment, we can integrate the practice of paying attention with a little more focus and intention- to the breath, to our sensations, to others, to ourselves.

Addiction isn’t about alcohol and drugs. It’s the absence of self. This absence is described as a hole in your soul. You can’t love others when you are empty inside. Recovery peels back the painful layers and heals that hole through connection, honesty and hard work. To love oneself, is the beginning of a lifetime recovery.

For those who spend their lives learning to relax with groundlessness, death is liberating. Death is the ultimate unknown that we are forever avoiding; it’s the ultimate groundlessness that we try to escape. But if we learn to relax with uncertainty and insecurity, then death is a support for joy.]
