“And acceptance is the answer to all

of my problems today. When I am

disturbed, it is because I find some person,

place, thing, or situation-some fact of my

place, thing, or situation as being

exactly the way it is supposed

to be at this moment.”

MINDFULNESS EXAM


Mindfulness and pain management

I began, early in recovery to feel compassion for other drunks, then for my children, and my ex-husband. This compassion, a feeling accompanied later by love, opened a door to a huge fortress within me which had been forever locked. I began to feel for others, to be able, for brief moments, to put myself in their shoes. New worlds opened up. I began to understand the world about me….

I shall never, nor shall any of us, discover the secrets of the universe. But we can accept their mystery, our part in them and our lives and deaths, as something spiritual beyond our understanding.

(Came to Believe, 1973, p. 119)


Mindfulness and pain management

If we are painstaking about this phase of our development, we will be amazed before we are half way thought. We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness . We will not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it. We will comprehend the word serenity and we will know peace. No matter how far down the scale we have gone, we will see how our experience can benefit others. That feeling of uselessness and self-pity will disappear. We will lose interest in selfish things and gain interest in our fellows. Self-seeking will skip away. Our whole attitude and outlook upon life will change. Fear of people and of economic insecurity will leave us. We will intuitively know how to handle situations that used to baffle us…..Are these extravagant promises? We think now. They are being fulfilled among us-sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. They will always materialize if we work for them.

Alcoholics Anonymous., 2001, p. 83-83.


Mindfulness and pain management

I was sitting at an outdoor café in a city I love but thought I would never visit again. Simply sitting, watching, feeling, absorbing the beauty and life all around me. Slowly I became conscious of something building inside me: an infusion of strength.

Little did I know that by year’s end, I would use every bit of it in moving into a completely new place: personally, professionally, and physically.

I experienced it again recently when post-exhaustion relaxation was so complete. I was almost too empty to move. Into those moments of complete openness, I could feel the strength come again.
