Inspiration, Purpose, We talked in our meeting about these questions. When if you try to find your own purpose through someone else, in your life, no condemnation of judgment. I think most of us have done this at some point. How has inspiration given you a sense of purpose? And how might our community inspire the cultivation of each member's in our work. These are the types of interactions that we hope to have in our creative recovery groups. So I'm sharing with you today the meditations for October and from John. Jesus answered them very...

...seat that you sit on. Wiggle your toes again. Take a deep breath in when you are ready, slow and controlled, exhale, letting out from the stress. The worries that the dues just for the next few moments, let yourself be I share a quote by Eduardo ce Coral. Throw your shadow overboard, proverbs, blessings scratched into the wood, the tar of my country better than the honey of others. Invitation to purpose center with tasting.

Take time to journal or share with a friend and discuss these questions. When have you admired someone and then discovered their life was not what it seemed? What was it like to discover this m h. Next question, it is easier to assume someone else has more potential or contributes more to the world than you. Why do you think that is And if it's not the case, why do you think that is not? M hm? Finish the sentence.

I will feast with the source of inspiration today. By what does that look like? For you notice observed, pay attention to the good things around you. It is so easy to see the negative and they're not so positive. And sometimes we just need to look for the good. And if we are not seeing the good, then we can be the good. We can be the one to be kind, smile and go out of our way to help someone in need, creating community, inspiring others, finding purpose not just within ourselves, but also how can our purpose support and build community, not...
