Why is serenity so important to our

recovery? Because darkness cannotexist

where there is light! If we can maintain

a serene state of mind as established

through our faith in HP and the BB

Promises, negative emotions and

behaviour will have no power over

us. Stress, fear, compulsiveness,

obsessiveness, resentment, guilt, shame,

willfulness, doubt, distrust, greed and

envy, have no power over a mind that is

kept in serene repose. Serenity allows

us to see situations clearly and

makewise decisions. Most importantly, by

maintaining a serene mind, we keep the

door to our High Power open.


I will face each challenge with grace and serenity.
