AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote
Logic is great stuff. We liked it. We still like it. It is not by chance we were given the power to reason, to examine the evidence of our senses, and to draw conclusions. That is one of man’s magnificent attributes. We agnostically inclined would not feel satisfied with a proposal which does not lend itself to reasonable approach and interpretation. Hence we are at pains to tell why we think our present faith is reasonable, why we think it more sane and logical to believe than not to believe, why we say our former thinking was soft and mushy when we threw up our hands in doubt and said, ‘We don’t know.’ – Pg. 53 – We Agnostics

There will be many times when nothing anyone does (even sponsor, counselor and yourself), seems right. But these ‘nothing is ever right’ times will pass like a cloud overhead. Do not make decisions until the cloud passes, so that you make them in the full light of your good senses.
Let me understand that the ‘nothing is going right’ times will soon drift away like clouds overhead.
Every day I experience another piece of myself. Yes I am laid low, but at the same time worlds are opening up to me on the inside. My body is struggling to heal and so is the rest of me. I am watching myself deepen inside and become more aware. It is forced upon me by illness, but I cannot help but being a little bit grateful for the time to slow down and go within. I am seeing the subtleties of life, I am watching myself watch the world around me. I have a witness inside that is constantly with me but I seldom take time to be with it. As I witness my own thoughts, I learn about who I am inside, what makes me tick. As I watch myself interact with others, I see how I act in relationships. As I notice the little things, life seems to matter more.
I am renewing my relationship with life

The old timers used to say that the world’s most difficult prayer was ‘O, Lord, be as good to me today, as I was to my fellowman, yesterday.’
I say what I mean, mean what I say, and don’t say it mean.

Today I will let my Higher Power handle my worry so I can be free, I choose to be alive in this moment and not blocked by the conversations that go on over and over in my head. I will stop trying to figure everything out and will trust that I will get the right answers at the right time.
