” … pain was the touchstone
of all spiritual progress …
for we know that
the pains of drinking
had to come before sobriety,
and emotional turmoil
Twelve and Twelve, pp. 93 & 94
Why do so many show up in the rooms of A.A. ,
most will tell you that they were sick and tired
of being sick and tired.
When the pain of the guilt and shame is sufficient,
those that truly seek to understand their lot
will be blessed if they can find the fellowship
and following their suggestions,
find a way that may not be easier and softer
but is definitely more rewarding.
What keeps them sober,
not wanting to return to the pain,
to be able to continue the spiritual path
that allows them to enjoy a life
filled with serenity and peace of mind.
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.
