Waking Up to Truth
Our illusions were tied to our compulsive overeating behavior. Abstaining from the behavior makes it possible for us to let go of our illusions. If is the Higher Power that leads us into the truth which penetrates and dispels illusions.
Working the Steps, eading the OA literature, and talking with other members prepares us to receive new truth. Our Higher Power gives us insights, sometimes in quick flashes of perception and sometimes slowly over a long period of time. The experience of discovery is one of the most rewarding facets of our program. It is an ongoing process, since we continue to grow and become aware of new truth. Too much food kept us in a fog. Now we are recovering from the physical effects of our addiction to refined sugars and carbohdrates and the emotional dependency on eating to avoid feeling pain. In the process, we wake up to more and more truth about ourselves, others, and our Higher Power.
May I live by the truth that You reveal.
"Failure is an EVENT, it is not a person – yesterday really did end
night, and today is your brand new day..."
The sun always rises, and a new day begins.
