Alcoholics Anonymous | Step 2 | February 18

Alcoholics Anonymous | Step 2 | February 18 |

The nature of our friendships and relationships are always changing. We become close and intimate for a while. We change and they change. We feel deeply and when change happens, we feel loss. Letting go with love is bitter sweet grief, we do cherish always...

"OUR PATHS ARE OUR OWN… there was nothing left for us but to pick up the simple kit of spiritual tools laid at our feet."

To Love Be Loved & Useful just for today..~ Tom Bodett "They say a person needs just three things to be truly happy in this world. Someone to love, something to do, and something to hope for." Hope is key in just one day, keep our expectations real and dreams may become reality in the moment of now..

Hope best experienced in the moment where it translates into reality through action ~ Carl Sandburg "Hope is an echo, hope ties itself yonder, yonder." -/- Yonder without foundation is a rich fantasy, happy imaginings, living in the now we can transform our hopes into living experience on the path of of life..

One Coin or Chip kept close as a reminder, 24 hours is Just One Day ~ Satya Sai Baba "Man's many desires are like the small metal coins he carries about in his pocket. The more he has the more they weight him down." Enough to lighten the heart and let the world guide me to my next step..

Broken hearted, better we know we are heartbroken and face the reality one day at a time ~ Thomas Fuller "If it were not for hopes, the heart would break." Then we learn hope and wisdom combined lead to less heartbreaks and more heartfelt moments..

Hope is facing reality ~ Pliny the Elder "Hope is the pillar that holds up the world. Hope is the dream of a waking man." -/- I hope I feel real life as it is today day...

Daybreak, The Truth of Now, all we need is love, and to be included today ~ Aristotle "Hope is a waking dream." Hello God, universe, world, nature, providence choices just for today...

Step 2 "Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity"

We find it amazing that the newcomer can start the A.A. program without any specific beliefs or, for that matter, without any beliefs whatsoever. All a person needs is the open-mindedness and the willingness to believe that WE BELIEVE this program works...

"God [it is what I understand to be God or a "Higher Power," always a personal understanding we have for ourselves, there is no AA or common understanding, simply what you believe] grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference" God is often understood to be: Truth, Love and Wisdom in the moment of now...
