Perhaps one of the greatest rewards of meditation and prayer is the sense of belonging that comes to us.
— TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 105
That’s what it is — belonging! After a session of meditation I knew that the feeling I was experiencing was a sense of belonging because I was so relaxed. I felt quieter inside, more willing to discard little irritations. I appreciated my sense of humor. What I also experience in my daily practice is the sheer pleasure of belonging to the creative flow of God’s world. How propitious for us that prayer and meditation are written right into our A.A. way of life.
