AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote

Both you and the new man must walk day by day in the path of spiritual progress. If you persist, remarkable things will happen. – Pg. 100 – Working With Others

Hour To Hour – Book – Quote

Self will and ‘running the show’ can be like the monkey who sticks his hand into the trap for food. He grasps the food tightly creating a fist that won’t fit out the trap door. The monkey struggles but won’t release the food and he is trapped. Simply letting go would free him. Holding tight to your will and your way can be the fist that traps you. Let Go and Let God.

I let go of my tight grip by not insisting everything be my way. I say, ‘Let Go and Let God’ often to remind myself I don’t want to be trapped. What a relief.

The Healing Universe

Everywhere I look life is in a process of healing from something. A plant that has been stepped on fights to come back to life. A tree that has lost branches sprouts new growth. An animal that has lost a leg learns to run on three. Life is always reaching for life. It’s an unbroken circle. Like a lover reaching for their beloved , or a child holding onto his mother until the pain passes. Life is programmed to heal itself and it will strive towards that with all its will. I will allow this powerful force that’s build into my DNA to work its magic on me. I won’t resist my own healing. I will allow it in.

I am built to heal

– Tian Dayton PhD

Pocket Sponsor – Book – Quote

The safest banks fail, corporations fold, loved ones die, all things change. Your life now changes like the tides or the seasons. You are not alone in this change. Seek out others who have experienced relief from your problem of choice and let them guide you through it.

I can change my clothes and change my address but until I change myself, I cannot grow.

“Walk Softly and Carry a Big Book” – Book

If you want to feel better, clean house. If you want to get better, find God.

Time for Joy – Book – Quote

Today I have the courage to own my own unhappiness, daring to look within to discover its source. Today I treat myself as a friend, with gentleness and acceptance.

Alkiespeak – Book – Quote

An alcoholic who stops drinking, is like the guy who jumps into the water only to find that he can’t swim. And AA isn’t the water you jump into when your pants are on fire, AA is a bunch of idiots in a life boat with charred britches who come along and give swimming lessons. – Doug D.
