A New Religion ? ? ?

.

“As a society

we must never become

so vain as to suppose

that we are authors

and inventors of a

new religion.”

.

.

A.A. Comes Of Age, p. 231

.

A.A. has taught me HOW it works;

Honesty, Open-mindedness and Willingness.

A.A. has taught me that there is a difference

between spirituality and religion.

A.A. has taught me to mind my own business

and the only thing I have to offer,

to those who ask,

is my experience and hope, the understanding

that every unique soul who wants to recover

will recover in their own unique way.

Recovery is being open minded.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Any Which Way

.

“We can be grateful for

every agency or method

that tries to solve the

problem of alcoholism –

whether of medicine,

religion, education,

or research.”

.

As Bill Sees It,  p 147

.

.

There is a God today, and it is not you or me.

The final judge of a persons sobriety

will be a loving Higher Power

who knows if you are lying or

if you my be just stretching the truth a little bit.

We have not yet been cloned, we are unique individuals

and no matter how an alcoholic stops drinking,

God bless them, and may  they do no harm.

Recovery is great no matter which way you do it.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Instincts

.

” He did not design man

to destroy himself

by alcohol,

but He did give man

instincts to help

him stay alive.”

12 & 12, p. 35

.

.

The disease of Alcoholism wants me to isolate,

be  alone, to push away anyone who loves me

and to kill myself.

This negative drive is opposite of normal human instincts

and I must be grateful to Alcoholics Anonymous

and their Big Book which has shown me

how sick I really am.

Today, be spiritual, work a program of recovery

that will prevent your disease from warping your instincts.

Recovery is understand one’s natural instincts.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Go With The Flow

God, help me

let go of my need

to be in resistance

to the harmonic flow

of life.

Help me learn

to go with the flow

and accept the help

and support that You have to offer me.”

.

~ Melody Beattie

.

Today, don’t go marching off to the beat

of a different drummer, dance to the rhythm

that the Great Creator has placed in your soul.

Today, have faith, the help and support

of a loving Higher Power will set you free.

Recovery is to go with the flow.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

The Great Weaver

.

.

“In Silence

there is eloquence.

Stop weaving and see

how the pattern improves.”

.

~ Rumi

.

.

We become so busy living our lives

that often the pattern becomes obscured,

disappears in the lint and dust of the too busy loom.

Today, seek the silence,meditate,

step back and observe the pattern of your life,

have gratitude for the good

and be ready to change if you must.

Today, understand that with the guidance of your Higher Power,

the Great Weaver, you can create a pattern

that is happy, joyous and free.

Recovery is to see the pattern of your life improve.

Sobriety is a blessing form a Higher Power.

The Perfect Position

.

“You are in

the perfect

position

to get there

from here.”

.

~ Abraham-Hicks
.

God knows where you are.

Every step that we have taken has been necessary

to get us to where we are, we cannot retrace

those steps ever again

and most of us would not want to.

Today, know that you are in the perfect position

to get to happy, joyous and free just by doing

the will of a loving Higher Power.

Recovery is to enjoy being in the perfect position.

Don’t Take It Personally

.

“There is

a huge amount

of freedom that

comes to you

when you take

nothing personally.”

.

~Don Miguel Ruiz

.

Personally, I like me, God likes me and

if you don’t like me, that’s your problem.

Even constructive criticism is your opinion

and the options of how I react to that opinion

rest personally with the free me.

Today, as long as I choose to do the next right thing,

I concern myself with doing the will of my Higher Power,

I can personally be happy, joyous and free.

Recovery is the freedom to be happy with yourself.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
