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.

Guilt and Pride

.

“Guilt is really

the reverse side

of the coin of pride.

Guilt aims to

self-destruction,

and pride aims at

the destruction of others.”

.

As Bill Sees It, p.140

.

A balanced life  is the goal, the mantra of the soul

who wishes to recover from the disease of alcoholism.

The disease wants the sufferer to isolate, be alone,

push away anyone who loves them

and to kill themselves.

The battle between pride and guilt is sufficient to make

the alcoholic crazy enough to do the bidding of the disease.

Today, work the steps, go to a meeting,

work with another alcoholic

and in all of your affairs

attempt to keep the balance somewhere

between serenity and peace of mind.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

And, if no one has told you yet today,

God loves you and so do we.
