A Willingness To Give

.
“The unity, the effectiveness,

and even the survival of A.A.

will always depend upon

our
continued willingness to

give
up some of our personal

ambitions and desires

for the common safety and welfare.”

.

~  As Bill Sees It    p  220

.

As a drunk it was always about me,

in recovery it becomes all about we.

Compromise, balance, and agreement, words that are

foreign to the active alcoholic are words to those in recovery

that provide serenity and peace of mind.

To be restored to sane thinking is learning how

to use these words honestly in all of our affairs.

Recovery is to give up some of our personal ambitions and desires.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

An Impossible Dilemma

.

Most conversion experiences,

whatever their variety, do

have a common denominator

of ego collapse at depth.

The individual faces an

impossible dilemma.”

.

~  As Bill Sees It    p217

.

To have a conversion experience one must

learn to listen and listen to learn,

to keep your eyes and ears open and your mouth shut,

and turn one’s head around.

Look for the positive, have faith, a loving Higher Power

will do for you what you could not do for yourself.

The impossible dilemma will become

the possible journey towards a life

that is happy, joyous and free.

Recovery is to face the impossible dilemma.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
