Purpose and Direction

lania flowers August 015


“We, who have traveled

this dubious path,

beg you to lay aside prejudice,

even against organized religion.

We have learned that whatever

the human frailties of various

faiths may be, those faiths

have given purpose and direction

to millions.”


BB p 49


Believe in what you want to believe

and know that those beliefs may change

as you grow in faith and understanding.

More important is that you allow others to believe

as they want to believe and it is not your duty

to make, insist, or want to change them

if they do not want to change.

Be grateful, keep it simple, don’t drink, stay sober

and learn from whatever tools others are using for their sobriety

because one day you may want to borrow a part of their

spiritual program even if their beliefs are based

on a religious philosophy that you may question.

If it works to keep you sober, work it.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.


ME and the Boss


And, if no one has told you yet today,

God loves you and so do we.
