AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
A new life has been given us or, if you prefer, ‘a design for living’ that really works. – Pg.28 – There Is A Solution
Hour To Hour – Book – Quote
Life is not fair. You see it in the headlines; you see it in people racked with chronic pain; you see it in senseless street violence and children starving in third world countries. It will be a challenge for you in the coming weeks to understand it is not an unfair thing that has just happened, addiction and then recovery, but the greatest fight you shall ever receive.
I do not know why good people suffer addiction. It is the very act of not understanding and still trusting in the good of the universe that comprises the very essence of faith.
Life is a Spiritual Journey
No one can learn the alphabet for me. And no one can develop wisdom, appreciation or inner strength for me. These are things I have to do for myself. What is life but growth and expansion, increasing my understanding so that I can deepen my experience of feeling alive? There are gifts in healing if I am willing to see them, lessons I can learn, awareness’s that I need in order to appreciate what I already have. Sickness can be my teacher if I let it. Even as I wait for strength to return to my body, still my spirit and my character can grow stronger and better and more refined. I am not doing nothing as I lie here, I am growing on the inside. Today I will use this moment that puts me into a deeper part of myself to come in contact with an openness to grow. I am in touch with a part of life that I normally don’t get in touch with.
I am understanding and expanding my inner world.

When you can’t find the solution to a problem, look for the soulution to the problem.
I keep whispering my heart’s desires because I never know when my angel is listening.

Time for Joy – Book – Quote
It feels so good to help other people and to know that I have something to give them. It feels so good to have turned my own life around so that it can benefit others.

We must think of all those sick ones still to come to AA. As they try to make their return to faith and to life, we want them to find everything in AA that we have found, and yet more, if that be possible. No care, no vigilance, no effort to preserve AA’s constant effectiveness will ever be too great to hold us in full readiness for the day of their homecoming. —Bill W. 1959
