Final Four Principles of the Daily Homework for Recovery.

Below are the final four principles of the Daily Homework for Recovery. Utilizing them in your life will assist you in transforming you and your life.

7. Acknowledge yourself and others daily. Acknowledge the miracles in your life. Practice affirming that every moment of your life is a miracle.

8. Practice patience! Remember that you are doing the best you can. At the moment that we do we do the best we can. When you know more, you will do things differently. Do this in regards to others too.

9. Share with others what you are getting out of your recovery.


For transformation and recovery to take place, it is important for us to get it that we are responsible for our life, that such responsibility is generated from our thoughts and word, that life can be transformed through the creation of possibilities, that it is important for us to become intentional about our creating, that we can support such a creative action through structure and repetition, that it is important to acknowledge ourselves through the process while being patient with the journey, that it is vital to the very nature of our transformation for us to share our possibilities with others through enrollment and for us to remain hungry for transformation.

Footprints of a life after a passing.

My mother passed on July 1st of this year.  The experience and time that has passed after it have been difficult to say the least.  Shortly after my mother passed we started to put her affairs and estate into order.  Part of this process was the cleaning of her house in preparation for it being sold.  All of the material objects that she possessed and loved are in the process of leaving her house.  My brother told me during the process that mom’s footprints are being erased from life.

While I get what he said I do not think that this is completely true.  Much of what she had and even created will disappear and either cease to exist or be transferred to others.  However, it is my belief that her most important footprints were her children, me being one of them.  She and my father created us, nurtured us and guided us through live.  It is up to us to honor her and our father by being of service to others in the world.  We are her footprints that matter in life.  With the transferring of our way of being to our children we continue to keep her footprints as well as my father’s, alive.

Daily Homework for Recovery.

We learn much of what we learn initially through repetitious exposure. It is by becoming present to something repeatedly that space is created for us to learn anew. It is by taking that which we are exposed to and bringing it forth into our life, committing it to action, that we begin to change or transform our life in some way. This is especially true with respect to the possibilities made available through transformation. The DAILY HOMEWORK is about the creation of possibilities for transformation.

The DAILY HOMEWORK is not a replacement or alternative to a personís work in recovery. The DAILY HOMEWORK is not a replacement or alternative for the 12 Step Program. What the DAILY HOMEWORK does is support a personís integrity and commitment with respect to recovery. The principles of the DAILY HOMEWORK are designed to a person to stay present to every day and to practice bringing forth into his life. The promise of the DAILY HOMEWORK is that the space for recovery to happen will be created if the principles are learned and lived.

What are you committed to in life, structure or chaos?

This is a simple question to asks anyone whether they are in recovery or practicing transformation.  What are you committed to in life?  Are you committed to structure or are you committed to chaos?  Your answer to this question is important.  Regardless of what you say, the truth of your commitment will show up in your behavior.

If you are committed to chaos you will find life very difficult.  You will also find doing recovery difficult, if not impossible.  To be committed to chaos means that you will not do what you say you would do, you will be late for appointments, if you show up at all, will not complete on much of the work that you need to do to change or transform your life.  Living life from the perspective of chaos will also allow you to take no absolutely no responsibility for your life, giving you the ability to blame others.

To be structured is to put order into your life.  To be structured means that I will set up goals and take on accomplishing them through doing what I need to do.  I will show up for my appointments and do what I say I will do.  I will create a plan for my week, for my month, and then will go about making what I want happen. Structure lets me predict what will happen to me, as I am the one actively creating life, not being the effect of life.  Creating the habit of structure will allow you to transform your life.
