“Its main object is to enable you to find a Power greater than yourself which WILL solve your problem.” –pg 45 AA Big Book
“Selfishness- self-centeredness! That is the root of our troubles….Above everything, we alcoholics and addicts must be rid of selfishness. We MUST, or it KILLS us!” -pg 62 AA Big Book
So why do so many people in “recovery” duck God? Why can’t people talk about God? How many times have we heard this is a SPIRITUAL program, not a religious one. I don’t care what you call God, but we need to stop tiptoeing around, hence we offend someone or scare them away. God is inside every single one of us. We shut off the connection though from a litany of selfish actions. Get God or you are going to FAIL. Much more than fail, we will die. It’s that simple. How do you get God? The Steps.
Peace, love, understanding
