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.

The A.A. Message

.

.

. . . “ our Society has concluded

that it has but one high mission

– to carry the A.A. message

to those who don’t know

there’s a way out.”

.

~ 12 & 12,  p. 151

.

.

I cannot keep it until I give it away.

This paradox was not the easiest for a

self-centered, self-serving drunk

to understand.

I never, ever, gave anything away,

especially for free.

A.A. has taught me that for me to enjoy my sobriety

I had to give freely of my experience, strength and hope

with other alcoholics, those who want it.

Recovery is to carry the A.A. message.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

One Good Look

.

“One good look

in the mirror

ought to be

answer enough

for any alcoholic.”

.

Twelve and Twelve p 37

.

.

We all have a different path to follow , however,

most drunks have had that feeling of

“I don’t like what I see in the mirror.”

The saying in AA that has helped many is,

“we are going to love you until you learn to love yourself.”

Today, be kind to yourself, don’t drink, don’t think,

go to a meeting and forgive the man in the mirror.

Recovery is being able to like what you see in the mirror.

The Unity

.

The unity

of Alcoholics Anonymous

is the most cherished quality

our Society has. . . .

We stay whole,

or A.A. dies.”

.

~ 12 & 12, p. 129

.

.

Unity, principles before personalities, that as an alcoholic

we can stay sober only by helping anyone who wants help.

Some have recovered for a hopeless state of mind, however,

we need to be reminded that science has yet to discover

a cure for alcoholism and the only way one can maintain

their sanity, their peace of mind, their serenity

is by helping the alcoholic sitting beside him

who also wants what he has.

Recovery in AA is a we thing.

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.

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.
