Paradoxically

New battery 002

.

“And then, paradoxically,

we have found ourselves

in a new dimension,

the real world of

spirit and faith,

Enough willingness,

enough open-mindedness

— and there it is.”

.

As Bill Sees It,   p. 174

.

As the know-it-all drunk,

everything was a battle, a point to be argued,

a my way or the highway, no opposition allowed,

I know what I am doing, mind your own business,

a don’t even go there attitude that kept the drunk

submerged in the bottle.

Learn to listen and listen to learn.

When we took the cotton out of our ears

and stuffed it into our mouths,

we were introduced to a new world

where it was not necessary to fight,

where surrender was a winning proposition.

Today, understand that willingness and open-mindedness

are the pathway to a life that is happy, joyous and free.

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.
