The Ground Glass

.

“The moral inventory . . .

has the effect of taking

the ground glass out

of us, the emotional

substance that still

cuts and inhibits.”

.

As Bill Sees It      p. 140

.

The cut is the guilt, the shame, the remorse,

those feelings the drunk should have, but doesn’t,

at least not until he tries to get sober.

Love the A.A. saying:

the good news and the bad news of getting sober:

first the good news, you get your feelings back,

now for the bad news, you get your feelings back.

Remember: pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.

Today, work the steps thoroughly

and learn to move on with living.

Recovery is removing the emotional substance

that still cuts and inhibits.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

A Spot-check Inventory

.

“A spot-check inventory

in the midst of

disturbances

can be of very great

help in quieting

stormy emotions.”

.

As Bill Sees It     p 132

.

Twenty-four/seven, anytime you hear the resident rodent

scampering through the head is as good as time as any

to do a spot inventory.

Why am I thinking or acting this way ? ? ?

Why does the person or thing bother me ? ? ?

Where is my serenity and peace of mind ? ? ?

Today, a spot prayer, a little meditation

and a phone call to your sponsor or a friend

will usually find the answers for you and put you

back on beam. The pathway to happiness.

Recovery is learning how to quiet stormy emotions.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
