Found this on a Kundalini Yoga Website:
The Seven Steps to Happiness
The first step is commitment. In every life you are meant to commit. That is why the word is commit-meant. Commitment gives you CHARACTER.
Character is when all your characteristics—all facets, flaws, and facts—are under your control. Yin and yang meet there, totally balanced. Character gives you DIGNITY.
People start trusting you, liking you, respecting you. Dignity will give you DIVINITY.
What is Divinity? Divinity is when people have no duality about you. They trust you right away. They have no fear about you. Divinity gives you GRACE.
Where there is grace, there is no interference, no gap between two people, no hidden agenda. Grace gives you the power to SACRIFICE.
Power to Sacrifice
You can stand any pain for that person. That sacrifice gives you HAPPINESS.
Commitment—the power to succeed when you are powerless. Character—you cannot be shaken. Dignity—do not hesitate to do what you have to do for somebody. Divinity— nothing can touch you.Grace— stand any disgrace with grace. Power to sacrifice—know you own nothing, that everything is of God, and give to whomsoever has the need.Happiness—do something for no self-gain. A few breaths of life through you can uplift something for a moment. “I” has only one meaning—that you can do something for somebody. When “I” is for yourself you have wasted your life.”

Thanks @Butch. I used to roll my eyes at these posts (I was so resistant to ANYTHING AA) but now I have found that I actively go looking for them. They do help me start my day.
It is funny how things change and your mind opens to things. The old me would have made fun of the new me. Lol. I’m happy that the messages help. Hang in there and keep your sobriety number one.
