“What I discovered
after I arrived
at the other side –
when my inventory
is completed –
is that the illusion was
greater than the reality.”
Daily Reflections, p. 288
Fear is the great illusion.
I could not make a list of my moral indiscretions
as a part of Step Four because the illusion was
that I was such a bad person
no one would ever want to associate with me, ever.
Then my sponsor shared with me some of his inventory,
I heard from speakers in the rooms how they had
been not to upstanding and I learned that if it had a name
someone had already been there and done that.
Honesty dispels the illusion.
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.
