Here the case is made for creative physical movement as an antidote for addiction. What particularly caught my attention was the reminder of what is so easy to forget as we navigate recovery - "we cannot think our way out of our emotional habits; these patterns of sensation and response express our fundamental, sensory creativity. Instead, we must create new patterns, new values, in the places where the older ones dwell--in the movements of our bodily selves. In the small actions we do every day, sensing and responding. In patterns of thinking, feeling, and acting that relate to ourselves, to one another, and to our worlds."
Acceptance. When I am disturbed, it is because a person, place, thing, or situation is unacceptable to me. I find no serenity until I accept my life as being exactly the way it is meant to be. Nothing happens in God’s world by mistake. Acknowledge the problem, but live the solution!
