Podcast title Tao of Our understanding Alcohol Recovery Podcast
Website URL http://taorecovery.libsyn.com
Description Do you want to stop drinking? Does alcoholism or addiction run in your family? Are you considering how to get sober? Are you seriously thinking about sobriety for the first time being alcohol is controlling your life as never before? Has the idea of a "Higher Power" kept you out of Alcoholics Anonymous or other 12 Step recovery programs? If so, then check out this podcast! In this meeting, a chapter of the Tao Te Ching is discussed every week as to how it relates to recovery. Taoist Philosophy can be a great tool for embracing the idea of a “Higher Power”. Nature offers all of the examples necessary for a concept of a source of all life, much different but yet very similar in many ways to more traditional religious thinking. Here is a link to an online version of the Tao Te Ching that we use in every meeting; https://ttc.tasuki.org/display:Year:1972,1988,1996,2004/section:1 In the Recovery Revolution Community, RRC for short, we have a number of live online recovery meetings every week on a number of different topics led by a wide mix of addicts and alcoholics in recovery.

http://taorecovery.libsyn.com/... download (audio/mpeg, 23.69Mb)

Description:

According to Lao Tzu in the 30th Chapter of the Tao Te Ching, force always causes resistance – PERIOD. NO EXCEPTIONS! When I resist a thought it grows. When I resist being angry that resistance gives the anger more energy. When I force my will on another, there is always resistance which results in thorny relations. How do we identify force in our life and what can we do about it?

The journey of your life will change when you emphasize gratitude for all that you are, all that you accomplish, and all that you receive. – Wayne Dyer
