Alcoholics Anonymous | June 13 | DonInLondon | Step 6 "Let Go"

June 13 2013: step six in mind… "The beginning of a lifetime job!" Of course, it is a lifetime job: finding balance when it is easy to go to extremes. We knew where a drink would lead us in the past. From having, "just the one to being the last man or woman standing…" And waking up in strange places. We can find balance in exciting times. Living reality in the raw and relishing every feeling because they are real. Every feeling means every feeling, no more doubting what our feelings are telling our thinking heads…

Knowing our feelings in the moment of now, when they are in balance and when they are at extremes. We do not control feelings as they emerge, we can quell them for a while if we need to, and yet they will emerge. These feelings good, bad and ugly are a part of who we are and our reaction to our circumstances. We feel it and then we think about it. We can deny our feelings when we cannot cope with the reality of what is going on. Feelings are always there, because without them we would not exist as humans…
