[00:00:00] Andi Mignolo: Who are you in this moment? Who is sitting down to write these reflections? Because even yesterday, me and today me are going to be connecting to something different. And so if I don't know who the person is, who's sitting down to write the reflections, if I'm not bringing awareness to that, then next year when I look back, , there's a big piece of information missing in terms of what was important to me in that moment.
[00:16:47] We can get really caught up sometimes in, in wanting to know who we truly are, and I think who we truly are changes. that's one of the reasons we had bookmarked, talking about the end of year reflections. And one of the things that I do in that is the first piece is what's the balance sheet of you?
[00:17:02] who are you in this moment? Who is sitting down to write these reflections? Because even yesterday, me and today me or are going to be connecting to something different. And so if I don't know who the person is, who's sitting down to write the reflections, if I'm not bringing awareness to that, then next year when I like look back, or next three months when I look back, there's a big piece of information missing in terms of what was important to me in that moment, what I was really feeling drawn to, what was alive, and also maybe some of the things that weren't present for me as well.
[00:24:13] you were talking a lot about learning and curiosi as you were dropping in and connecting to yourself, and I really think that's what these reflections are, is that reminder to just get curious and pause and check in. So reflections can be five minutes if you want them to be, or you can take a day, you can take two days.
[00:24:31] Andi Mignolo: Some of these reflections that people put out there, it's like, Hey, you need a week to do this. You really wanna do it. I know exactly who I am and what I'm gonna wanna be checking in with and what's gonna feel like your end reflection should be. , they shouldn't feel like an assignment or like a, oh, I, I have to use all my willpower to sit down and do this.
On the Hometown podcast and EMM blog, we released individual written and audio reflections on each station of the cross. Our reflection authors represent a wide variety of experiences and backgrounds; each offers a poignant reflection on a Station and its relevance to migration and what it means to welcome the stranger as we would welcome Christ. Each reflection calls us back to our essential identity as beloved children of God and asks us to prayerfully reflect on the meaning of the Cross in a world being transformed by migration.
This is an audiobook of reflections by AA members for AA members. It was first published in 1990 to fulfill a long-felt need within the Fellowship for a collection of reflections that moves through the calendar year - one day at a time. Each chapter contains a reflection on a quotation from AA. Conference-approved literature, such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, As Bill Sees It, and other books.
These reflections were submitted by members of the AA Fellowship who were not professional writers, nor did they speak for AA but only for themselves, from their own experiences in sobriety. Thus, the audiobook offers sharing, day by day, from a broad cross section of members, which focuses on the three legacies of Alcoholics Anonymous: recovery, unity, and service. Daily Reflections has proven to be popular, aiding individuals in their practice of daily meditation and providing inspiration to group discussions, even as it presents an introduction for some to AA literature as a whole. 041b061a72
