AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote
Next, we decided that hereafter in this drama of life, God was going to be our Director. He is the Principle: we are His agents. He is the Father, and we are His children. Most good ideas are simple, and this concept was the keystone of the new and triumphant march through which we passed to freedom. – Pg. 62 – How It Works

Doubts can be a good thing. It shows we’re still thinking. Of course we doubt the wisdom of taking steps, going to meetings, and practicing spiritual principles to arrest this deadly disease of addiction. Even Thomas doubted his path with Jesus, but given time, he saw the wisdom of the spiritual path. His doubts were allayed.
May my doubts, like Thomas’s fade away in time, as I observe the miracles in myself and others.
Today, I understand that when I project my feelings outward and see them as belonging to other people and not to me, I postpone my own self-awareness. The only way I can deal with difficult feelings is first to claim them as my own. Sitting with anxiety, anger, rage and jealousy is not pleasant, but actually experiencing my own feelings is the only way to get through them.
I own my feelings and am willing to experience them.

“Self-forgiveness brings your mental and emotional energy systems back into balance. That’s all. No big deal. It’s not necessarily religious or spiritual, it’s just good ol’ street sense – the missing link in intelligence that scientists are looking for. Once you practice forgiving and releasing yourself, you’ll realize the benefits soon in the way you feel overall.”

I need to put things in perspective because I have a disease of perception.
