About Me

My photo
I have recovered from the disease of Alcoholism. I believe there is only one person really,.. everybody. And that peace of mind is everything. -So treat your neighbor as you would treat yourself, because your neighbor IS yourself. I think most of recovery is what I would call common sense, but that learning to be ordinary is a true gift very few people acquire. My ambition is to accept everything unflinchingly, with compassion, and therefore be intrinsically comfortable in my own skin, no matter what. I am comfortable being uncomfortable and am willing to go to any lengths to improve my life. I believe the Big Book was divinely inspired, and is extraordinarily powerful. Unfortunately AA's best kept secret a lot of the time. (In my opinion). I just try to do what works, no matter what it is.

Chapter 6. INTO ACTION page 84
We have entered the world of the Spirit.

Chapter 6. INTO ACTION page 76
We feel we are on the Broad Highway,
walking hand in hand with the Spirit of the Universe

Chapter 6. INTO ACTION page 75
We begin to feel the nearness of our Creator.

the consciousness of your belief
is SURE to come to you.

Chapter 6. INTO ACTION page 85
To some extent we have become God-conscious.

Chapter 9. THE FAMILY AFTERWARD page 130
This dream world has been replaced by a great sense of purpose,
accompanied by a growing consciousness
of the power of God in our lives.

For the first time,
he lived in conscious companionship
with his Creator.

page 47
At the start, this was all we needed to commence spiritual growth,
to effect our first conscious relation with God
as we understood Him.

Chapter 5. HOW IT WORKS page 63
As we felt new power flow in,
as we enjoyed peace of mind,
as we discovered we could face life successfully,
as we became conscious of His presence,
we began to lose our fear of today, tomorrow or the hereafter.

Chapter 5. HOW IT WORKS
page 59
Sought through prayer and meditation
to improve our conscious contact with God
as we understood Him ,
praying only for knowledge of His will for us
and the power to carry that out.

Chapter 6. INTO ACTION page 87
Being still inexperienced
and having just made conscious contact with God,
it is not probable that we are going to be inspired at all times.

Chapter 4. WE AGNOSTICS page 51
When many hundreds of people are able to say
that the consciousness of the Presence of God
is today the most important fact of their lives,
they present a powerful reason why one should have faith.
