Absolute Honesty



.

“Only God can fully know

what absolute honesty is.


Therefore, each of us

has to conceive what

this great ideal may be –

– to the best of our ability.”



As Bill Sees It p 172

Perfect ? ? ? Only God knows.
Spiritual progress is an individuals step in the direction
of a better understanding of their own Higher Power.
As one works the steps one becomes more aware of
what rigorous honesty really means to them.
Today, take a step towards a spiritual understanding
by being truthful, being honest and if you can’t do either,
learn to say nothing at all.
Recovery is being honest to the best of our ability.
Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Stop Preaching

“Stop preaching at them,
” Dr. Silkworth said,

“and give them the hard
medical facts first.
This may soften them up

at depth so that they will
be willing to do anything
to get well. Then they may
accept those spiritual ideas
of yours, and even
a Higher Power.”

Better than teaching or preaching,

show by example that you are the person

that your dog thinks you are.

Don’t tell me, show me how kind you can be.

Don’t tell me, show me how patient and tolerant you can be.

Don’t tell me, show me how forgiving you can be.

Don’t tell me, show me how loving you can be.

Remember, you can tell a drunk,

but you can’t tell him much.

Recovery is showing, not teaching, not preaching.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
