AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote
…for deep down in every man, woman, and child, is the fundamental idea of God. It may be obscured by calamity, by pomp, by worship of other things, but in some form or other it is there. – Pg. 55 – We Agnostics
Hour To Hour – Book – Quote
To a practicing addict who lives wholly in the sensations of the body, the recovery state may seem like utter boredom. But as we learn to live balanced in body, mind, and soul we will wonder why we ever thought the state of addiction exciting.
May I know that it is not so much boredom as me being boring that’s my problem.
I Have Faith
I rely on faith. Faith sustains me and guides me. Faith is my constant companion. It leads me through passages of terrifying darkness and blinding light. Faith allows me to weave my life into a coherent whole, to walk on a path that others have lit, to strike out on my own and cut my way through the underbrush. There is nothing in my life that faith doesn’t make better. There is no day that faith doesn’t give meaning and purpose to. There is no relationship that faith doesn’t guide and sustain.
I need my faith to live.
