NO MAUDLIN GUILT

NO MAUDLIN GUILT

Quote:Day by day, we try to move a little toward God’s perfection. So we need not be consumed by maudlin guilt…
AS BILL SEES IT, p. 15

When I first discovered that there is not a single “don’t” in the Twelve Steps of A.A., I was disturbed because this discovery swung open a giant portal. Only then was I able to realize what A.A. is for me:
A.A. is not a program of “don’ts”, but of “do’s.”
A.A. is not martial law; it is freedom.
A.A. is not tears over defects, but sweat over fixing them.
A.A. is not penitence; it is salvation.
A.A. is not “Woe to me” for my sins, past and present.
A.A. is “Praise God” for the progress I am making today.
