Daily Recovery Quotes – July 11

AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote

When working with a man and his family, you should take care not to participate in their quarrels. You may spoil your chance of being helpful if you do. But urge upon a man’s family that he has been a very sick person and should be treated accordingly. You should warn against arousing resentment or jealousy. You should point out that his defects or character are not going to disappear over night. Show them that he has entered upon a period of growth. Ask them to remember, when they are impatient, the blessed fact of his sobriety. – Pg. 100 – Working With Others

Hour To Hour – Book – Quote

The world is not consistent, you are not consistent, and those around you will not always be consistent. We don’t have to be. We only have to remember not to use mind-affecting chemicals right now and our world will improve.

When inconsistency scares or annoys me, let me understand that to remain always constant would be like a plastic plant, never to grow and change!

Inner Hearing, Inner Sight

Today, I will trust my own heart. The clear message that whispers within me has more to tell me than a thousand voices. I have a guide within me who knows what is best for me. There is a part of me that sees the whole picture and knows how it all fits together. My inner voice may come in the form of a strong sense, a pull from within, a gut feeling or a quiet knowing. However my inner voice comes to me, I will learn to pay attention. In my heart I know what is going on. Though I am conditioned by the world to look constantly outside myself for meaning, today I recognize that it is deeply important for me to hear what I am saying from within. I give myself the gift of listening.

I will trust my inner voice.

Pocket Sponsor – Book – Quote

No one wants to hear the Sermon on the Mount or Zen philosophy when they’re trying to save their ass. They want to know what to do-not hear words of wisdom. Tell them what you did.

I do not get so spiritual, that I am of no earthly value.

Alkiespeak – Book – Quote

I went through life waiting for a space ship to land and a voice to say: ‘Sorry, dropped you on the wrong planet, time to go home now.’ – Trip S.
