AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote

Our description of the alcoholic, the chapter to the agnostic, and our personal adventures before and after make clear three pertinent ideas:
(a) That we were alcoholic and could not manage our own lives.
(b) That probably no human power could have relieved our alcoholism.
(c) That God could and would if He were sought.

Being convinced, WE WERE AT STEP THREE, which is that we decided to turn our will and our life over to God as we understand Him. – Pg. 60 – How It Works

Hour To Hour – Book – Quote

If we are in the program on a basis of ‘temporary permanence’ (we’ll stay until we find something better), then we need to re-evaluate. Addiction is cunning, baffling, and powerful and will always convince us it’s better than sobriety. We can only make this program if we commit ourselves each day, every day.

Who Am I?

Today I will ask this question over and over again. I will not expect an answer. I will ask for the sake of asking, I will ask in order to put my mind in the frame of searching for a deeper life of the spirit, I will ask to be guided, toward awareness of all that is eternal. I will ask this question throughout my life without ever expecting or insisting upon an answer. I understand that God lives in the asking, that God is too great and vast to reduce to any simple answer, that God lives in the question.

I am curious about the deeper mysteries of this life
– Tian Dayton PhD

Through the Fourth and Fifth steps we learn who we really are. Once we know who and what we are, we don’t have to be what we were.

Today, I am myself. I am perfect for the part.

Time for Joy – Book – Quote
