Hour To Hour – Book – Quote

Complete involvement in this new way of life will keep you from falling through the cracks. If you stay in the middle of us, you won’t fall off the edge.

As I follow those before me, newcomers will follow behind me and I will always be in the middle of the path of progress.

The Experience of Pleasure

I will build my capacity for experiencing joy and serenity. What good is earning a living if I don’t enjoy my life, what good is recovery if I don’t become grateful for the life I am saving, namely mine. Today I recognize that it is the simple pleasures that bring me the greatest joy. Waking up and feeling good. Enjoying the weather, a friend, a cup of tea. When I allow myself to live my life rather than chase after what I think my life should be or reject the good that is around me a mysterious thing happens. Life is enough. The space around me just sort of fills up with something, an energy, a sensation of being alive, a presence that fills in what previously felt empty. I look around and know it is enough.

Pocket Sponsor – Book – Quote

Friends and loved ones don’t always behave as we expect them to. But this is a good thing. If friends and loved ones were absolutely predictable, that would mean they are not changing and if they are not changing, they are not growing.

I don’t have to change friends if I understand that friends change.

Alkiespeak – Book – Quote

If a newcomer calls at 2 am, I say: ‘Your answer’s on page 63 of the Big Book.’ – I don’t know what’s on page 63, but this guy will start reading and if his answer’s not there, he’ll think; ‘Well he must have given me the wrong page.’ and keep reading until he finds his answer. – Serenity Sam.
