|John Belushi was born on January 24, 1949. A gifted comedian, he died at age thirty-three of a drug overdose.
Meditate today on releasing yourself from addictions that prevent you from using your natural-born gifts. Addiction may not be drugs or alcohol for you. It's whatever or whoever you're so attached to that it could ruin your life.
Today's meditation is just one step on a journey away from addiction. Begin by acknowledging that. Maybe it's your first step, maybe it's your hundredth. Bless and embrace your step, whatever step it is.
As you meditate on letting go, don't forget what you keep. Like Belushi, you have a gift-the love in your heart, an art, a talent-something uniquely your own. Remember that every step away from addiction is a step toward fully realizing that gift.
Meditate on addiction falling away from you, and visualize the beauty and talent that remain.
