Stop Preaching

.

“After failure
on my part to
dry up any drunks,
Dr. Silkworth
reminded me of
Prof.William James’s
observation that
truly transforming
spiritual experiences
are nearly always founded
on calamity and collapse.
“Stop preaching at them.”

It is all personal.

I can tell you how I recovered

but I cannot tell you how to recover.

Suggestion, go to as many meetings as you can

and talk to as many recovering individuals as you can

and take what you need and leave the rest.

Guaranteed, you will not get sober

the same way as your sponsor did.

Recovery is to follow the good examples

and lead by example, no preaching allowed.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

A Selfish Mistake

.

“Mistakenly,

we strive for a

self-determined

objective,

rather than for

the perfect objective

which is of God.”

.

~ As Bill Sees It p.236

.

When we say, do the next right thing,

we are suggesting that you do

the will of you Higher Power,

not the selfish, self-centered thing

that will help you achieve

your own personal objective.

Today, think of others as you determine

what is the next right thing for you to do.

Recovery is to seek to do the will

of your loving Higher Power.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
