The Triple Truth

.

.

“Teach this triple truth to all:

A generous heart, kind speech,

and a life of service and compassion

are the things which renew humanity.”

.

.

~ Buddha

.

.

All of humanity begins with the gracious heart.

A smile and a kind word will re-kindle the hope of mankind.

To give and to care, without the thought of re-payment

provides a foundation for the faith that the world

is becoming a better place.

Today, practice first,

then teach what you have learned to be true.

Recovery is to live  the triple truth.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

No One Is Inferior

.

“The surrender of life

is nothing              

to sinking down into

acknowledgment

of inferiority.”

.

– John C. Calhoun

.

God made nothing that is inferior.

Today, you do not have to act superior;

just be kind, be loving, be patient and tolerant,

be forgiving and compassionate and be the person

your Higher Power wants you to be.

The Great Creator has placed every one of us

in this world to do His will, to make this planet

a better place for all.

Recovery is a healthy dose of self-esteem.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

My Brain Is Backwards

sunset-080

.

My brain is

backwards.

Born that way,

the brain thinks

opposite of what

the medical (psychiatric)

community determines

to be healthy.

Instead of compassion, anger; instead of love, hatred;

instead of patience, anxiety; instead of acceptance, fear

and the list goes on and on.

The sick mind is negative, selfish, self-centered and

does not consider the consequences before it reacts.

The alcoholic sick mind also thinks the reverse;

that it is normal to drink poison,

to savor the effects of intoxication,

to believe that everyone does it,

to be the last to know that there may be a problem.

Occasioned By Others

006

.

“If I feel that my pain

has in part been

occasioned by others,

I try to repeat,

“God grant me the serenity

to love their best,

and never fear their worst.”

.

As Bill Sees It,    p. 250

.

The Serenity Prayer teaches us

that the only thing that we can change is

ourselves, our attitudes and our outlook.

We may influence others by our new sober

way of living, but, there are no guarantees.

When in doubt, pray.

Pray for patience, tolerance, compassion

and the understanding to do the next right thing.

Love unconditionally

and never fear tough love.

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.

Practice

lania flowers August 005

” I don’t think

we can do anything

very well in this world

unless we practice it,

And I don’t believe

we do A.A. too well

unless we practice it . . .”

.

Dr. Bob And The Good Oldtimers, p 307

.

Practice makes perfect,

in all aspects of our lives.

Practice, kindness, tolerance, patience, forgiveness,

compassion and know that your life will become

better than you could ever dream.

Breaking bad habits and learning new habits

is a effort that usually requires a lot of practice.

Changing your whole attitude and outlook on life

definitely requires a lot of your sweat and tears

and is usually more easily accomplished

with the help of a few hundred friends.

Today, immerse yourself into your program of A. A.

and learn to do life well.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

“Thus We Grow”

001

.

“Thus we grow.

And so can you,

though you be but

one man with this

book in your hand.

We believe and hope

it contains all

you will need to begin.”

.

BB p 162 & 163

.

It is not rocket science, however,

it is a serious life and death matter

and the simple program outlined in this book

has saved the lives of millions of alcoholics.

Have faith, the Book contains

all you will need to begin your journey

to a life that is happy, joyous and free.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.
