AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote
What used to be the hunch or the occasional inspiration gradually becomes a working part of the mind. Being still inexperienced and having just made conscious contact with God, it is not probable that we are goint to be inspired at all times. We might pay for this presumption in all sorts of absurd actions and ideas. Nevertheless, we find that our thinking will, as time passes, be more and more on the plane of inspiration. We come to rely upon it. – Pg. 87 – Into Action
Hour To Hour – Book – Quote
The most basic thing you can do right now is to understand the basics. Don’t drink, pop pills, shoot dope, snort coke, smoke crack AND listen to the people you came to for help.
My Divine Source aids me in putting everything in perspective this hour–the basics are: don’t use and listen!
Fear of Change
Today, I am able to live with my fear that I will not like myself or those close to me if we change. Change is threatening, and healing and growing include change. It doesn’t matter to my fearful self if the change is for the better or worse. In fact, change for the better can sometimes be even more threatening. I fear that I will not know how to act or have the tools to be with the ‘better’ without smearing my disease all over it. I remind myself today, again, that I do not have to grow perfectly. This is not an easy road, but the gains are so apparent that I will have faith that my tough times will come to an end.
