The Ground Glass

.

“The moral inventory . . .

has the effect of taking

the ground glass out

of us, the emotional

substance that still

cuts and inhibits.”

.

As Bill Sees It      p. 140

.

The cut is the guilt, the shame, the remorse,

those feelings the drunk should have, but doesn’t,

at least not until he tries to get sober.

Love the A.A. saying:

the good news and the bad news of getting sober:

first the good news, you get your feelings back,

now for the bad news, you get your feelings back.

Remember: pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.

Today, work the steps thoroughly

and learn to move on with living.

Recovery is removing the emotional substance

that still cuts and inhibits.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

The Review

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

.

“We reviewed

our own conduct

over the years past.

Where had we been

selfish, dishonest,

or inconsiderate?

Whom had we hurt?

.

BB p 69

.

It is always someone else’s fault

until one sobers up and is ask to figure out

‘what part did I play in this story ?’

When we begin to understand how the disease

manipulated our thinking, our motives, our moral character

it is only then that we must become humble

and accept the consequences of our actions.

Today, stay in today, do not repeat old habits.

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.
