Food for Thought~daily Meditations 10-13

Rigorous Honesty

As we work the OA program, we find that we cannot be rigorously honest about hwat we are eating unless we are rigorously honest about our actions as well. Once our Higher Power takes charge of our lives, a general housecleaning occurs. Gradually, we see that the attitudes and activities which undermine our integrity have to go.

The housecleaning process can be painful. It involves facing aspects of ourselves which we would prefer to remain hidden-our dependancy, pride, selfishness, avarice. Sex and money are often areas where our attitudes and pratices need revision. What we are doig is shifting from an ego-centered to a God-centered orientation, and the shift is not always smooth.

Rigorous honesty shows up harmful relationships for what they are. It illumines our motives, which are not always the best. The love and care of our Higher Power support us as our weaknesses are exposed. Through His healing power, we are strengthened and made whole.


Grant me the ability to practice rigorous honesty in all area of my life.
It is none of my business what others think of me.

The sun always rises, and a new day begins.
