Today I am so full of emotion and gratitude. I look back over the last 5+ months on Spark and I have to admit...I should have GAINED 37 pounds during this time. Instead, thanks to recovery, I have lost 37 pounds. This is a DIRECT RESULT of the Presence I have found through Abstinence. I always KNEW what Presence was. I knew how IMPORTANT it was to my overall mental, spiritual, emotional and physical health. But I had only ever had fleeting experiences with it.
The CLARITY inherent in abstaining from compulsive thinking and eating makes the daily practice of Presence POSSIBLE for me. All day...all night...I AM HERE...in WHICHEVER circumstance presents itself at any given moment. That daily exercise has SAVED MY LIFE these past few months. It has given me wisdom and insight I would not have had access to, otherwise.
Thank you SPARK! Thank you Source. Thank you Spark Friends who walk this road with me...and help me do what I could NEVER do alone!!!
