One night, seeking solitude and reflection, I went out to look at the sky. It was crystal clear and full of millions of stars. I felt both my tininess and the enormity of the twinkling heavens. That is when I realized, no matter how many of us were looking up that night, this experience of connection to the universe was there for all of us. As today's author of CTC says, "There was enough [sky] for everyone." I agree, too that "the same [is] true of God's love and guidance. No matter how many people seek God's help, there is always enough to go around."
As a person who was taught (and still believes) that there is never enough time, money, love, or me to go around, I need this message.
It helps me to realize that when someone speaks about his Higher Power with a personal love and intensity, that this does not leave less of God's love for me. In fact, when others share of their intimacy with God, I feel myself draw closer and appreciate my own conscious contact with my Higher Power. There is enough care and love to go around and around and around..
While I may not have everything I desire.. let me see, just for today, that I have everything I need. Let me perceive the abundance around me, and refrain from envying anyone else's abundance. "[My] Higher Power's love is broad enough to touch all who have the courage to place themselves in its presence."
"I can learn to avail myself of the immense, inexhaustible power of God, if I am willing to be continually conscious of God's nearness." One Day at a Time in Al-anon
