Alcoholics Anonymous | Step 2 | February 22 |
We are always unique and authentic individuals, living in the same day. Truth, love and wisdom are key to living. With humility we learn what works each day, that we are all interdependent and connected. Sober we have freedom to choose our path, we can change as life changes today...
Sober emotionally and spiritually our inner voice rings true to the good of living ~ Shakti Gawain "Every time you don't follow your inner guidance, you feel a loss of energy, loss of power, a sense of spiritual deadness." -/- Our inner voice informed by truth, love and listening to wisdom of others..
Our wisdom develops with an honest open and willing outlook, accepting and guided by the truth in front of us ~ Immanuel Kant "Immaturity is the incapacity to use one's intelligence without the guidance of another?" -/- Emotional and spiritual living is now, inclusive and enriched by experience and all we encounter..
Let go.. out of the madness of self will run riot, and let in the Truth, love and wisdom of others ~ Shakti Gawain "When I'm trusting and being myself as fully as possible, everything in my life reflects this by falling into place easily, often miraculously." Solutions come more easily as we include and seek help without fear..
Buddha "Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deeds, and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind. To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue."
Sober and with humility, if we behave to others as would would like them to behave towards us ~ Anais Nin ~ "Each contact with a human being is so rare, so precious, one should preserve it." -/- and have no expectations of them, then resentments and forgiveness keep us on the potholed trepious path of destiny, its not what they do, its what we do that gets results..
Living in the solution, honest open and willing, newcomers.. ~ Anais Nin "Each friend represents a world in us, a world not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born." -/- We need love them as we cherish our closest friends and as we learn to love ourselves..
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...
