I had an unpleasant experience with a potentially new sponsor and need a reality check. The sponsor described the quiet time as what I understand to be an Eastern meditation practice. There is nothing wrong with that. However, that is not my spiritual practice. I was told that I must do the meditation in this manner and then I could practice my "religion." My recovery is based upon the first three steps - total submission to my God and building my personal relationship with Him. Not quieting my mind and focusing upon my breath. This is not about "religion," it's personal relationship and the only way to recovery for me. What say you?
I am open to constructive feedback, so please be honest. Thank you!
