AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote
Faith without works was dead, he said. And how appallingly true for the alcoholic! For if an alcoholic failed to perfect and enlarge his spiritual life through work and self-sacrifice for others, he could not survive the certain trials and low spots ahead. – Pg. 14-15 – Bill’s Story

It is important to learn the focal points of our continuing recovery. They are: meetings, steps, a sponsor, and fellowship.
May the focal points of recovery burn into my consciousness now.
Today, I accept that part of myself that will never be satisfied, and I comfort and tame it. There is a place in me that knows it will never necessarily solve the eternal questions of life: Who am I and where do I come from, and where do I go when I die? At times, I can get depressed about that and feel that there’s no real point to life. But I am beginning to feel that to accept and love this side of myself is what also gives life beauty and meaning. Perhaps meaning is not knowing and understanding, but an acceptance of mystery, an embracing of the unknown. After all, it is that mystery that gives even the most ordinary circumstance an eternal sort of glow – a sense of depth, a feeling that there is more.
I accept that I will never fully understand – I embrace the mystery.
– Tian Dayton Phd

They say that when you are angry or resentful at someone, your best course of action is to pray for them. That’s difficult when you’d rather bop the bastard. Say it like you mean it, until you mean to say it.
Whenever I want to get even, I get even worse.
