Addiction Recovery: Paths Toward a Spiritual Life
Learning that there is more than just one path toward achieving an increase of spirituality in your life is part of the session of the Living in Balance portion of your addiction treatment program at Promises Austin that focuses on the topic of spirituality and will provide you with a great deal of information in order to help you determine the role that spirituality will play in your recovery program.
Options for progressing toward achieving a higher level of spirituality in your life will be discussed and a few examples that may be mentioned include providing services to others in helpful ways, taking advantage of the opportunities to pray and meditate in your daily routine, participating in the religious services of your choosing, as well as taking part in spiritual studying.We will discuss the perspective that many active spiritual people consider faith to be of primary importance in achieving and maintaining spirituality. This faith may be believing that there is a higher power that is good and more powerful than we as individuals each are.
Forgiveness and Service Work in Addiction Recovery
Forgiveness is another subject that will be addressed during this part of the addiction treatment program. Since everyone makes mistakes, it might be necessary for you to learn how to forgive both others and yourself.
While some spiritual leaders believe that faith is the most important aspect of spirituality, other spiritual leaders feel that providing services to other people and helping other people is the most important aspect of spirituality.
The act itself of being kind to other people through various behaviors and helping them out with different tasks is thought to be a path to greater spirituality as it draws the attention and focus of the individual providing services to others toward the needs of other people, rather than only the needs of oneself.
You will be encouraged to reflect on your beliefs regarding these many aspects of spirituality and paths leading toward greater spirituality as you continue to take a personal inventory of yourself and work toward achieving long-term sobriety and a better life.
