Hi, I’m Kit.

This poem was inspired by meditation meeting of OA agnostics and atheists.

My Higher Power = Life Force

Let go, let the Life Force float gently to the surface
I relax and take it easy

The inspiration comes

from a sponsor’s mouth
from a comment in a meeting
from a series of coincidences

that fit together in a gestalt pattern
to speak to me

Then I can accept what was unacceptable

the things that fall short of the high bar I set for myself

I stop measuring progress or regress
I stop comparing
The solution is before me
And I walk through it
The Life Force gives me the courage to do the next right thing
