AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote

Alcoholics who have derided religious people will be helped by such contacts. Being possessed of a spiritual experience, the alcoholic will find he has much in common with these people, though he may differ with them on many matters. If he does not argue about religion, he will make new friends and is sure to find new avenues of usefulness and pleasure. He and his family can be a bright spot in such congregations. He may bring new hope and new courage to many a priest, minister, or rabbi, who gives his all to minister to our troubled world. We intend the foregoing as a helpful suggestion only. So far as we are concerned, there is nothing obligatory about it. As non-demominational people, we cannot make up others’ mind for them. Each individual should consult his own conscience. – Pgs. 131-132 – The Family Afterward

Hour To Hour – Book – Quote

When people stop and find excuses for not going to 90 meetings in 90 days, ‘I can’t find enough time.’, then they really aren’t ready to let go of their disease. Is it more important of us to watch TV, talk on the phone, and complain then take that hour for our sobriety?

My Spiritual Source helps me value what will save my life and sanity.

Self Importance

I will get my mind off of the treadmill. There is more to life than my worries and obsessions. Just for today I won’t give every little thing more importance than it deserves. In the scheme of things, all of my petty annoyances aren’t all that important. I don’t have to take them so seriously that they disturb my inner peace. When I am constantly preoccupies with all that’s wrong, I forget to remember all that’s right. Self importance is different from valuing myself. Self importance gets me tied up in mental knots, valuing myself is nourishing and loving.

I will get out of my own way today
