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.

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.

Why Can’t He ?

.

“How many times people

have said to us:

‘I can take it or leave

it alone. Why can’t he ?’

Why don’t you drink like

a gentleman or quit.”

.

BB p 20

.

It was very difficult for me to understand

my obsession and compulsion to drink alcoholically,

therefore, how could I expect someone who has never

had the urge to drink understand.

Don’t worry about what they think,

put yourself into the middle of AA and hang out

with those who do understand.

Recovery is a we thing.

Educational Variety

.

“Most of our experiences

are what the psychologist

William James calls the

“educational variety”

because they develop slowly

over a period of time.”

.

BB p 569 (Third Edition)

.

.

The ah-ha moments when one discovers that

things have changed and the root cause was

not drinking alcohol one day at a time.

Most importantly, we become aware that those changes

were mad possible by a Power greater than oneself.

“God was doing for us what we could not do for ourselves.”

The spiritual awakening is happening when we discover

that the promises are coming true in our lives.

Today, know that it does not have to be the burning bush

to announce a spiritual awakening, a gentle ah-ha will do.

Recovery is contingent upon a strong spiritual foundation.

One Happiness

.

“There is only

one happiness in life,

to love

and

be loved.”

.

~ George Sand

.

Amo, amas, amat.

I love, you love, they love.

Love of self, love of others and love of Nature,

the world of the Great Creator as we understand it.

Love is a deep affection, passion or strong liking for life

and the happiness that this emotion creates in us.

Today, be happy, be kind, be patient and tolerant,

be forgiving, be compassionate, love and be loved.

Recovery is to love and be loved.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Opportunities

.

“A pessimist is one

who makes difficulties

of his opportunities

and an optimist is one

who makes opportunities

of his difficulties.”

.

~ Harry Truman

.

.

Is everything going to Hell in a hand-basket ???,

change your attitude, get a bushel basket,

collect all of the pieces, discard the sick and ugly,

keep the happy and healthy and use the opportunity

to make this world a better place for all.

Today, face the fear

and seek the chance to do God’s will.

Recovery is making opportunities out of your difficulties.

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.
