HOW FREE DO YOU WANT TO BE?

“You forget that you have just now tapped a source of power much greater than yourself.” BB pg 63

 

God is in our innermost being, yet we look everywhere ‘out there’ in our life instead of where the Big Book tells us, “We found the Great Reality deep down within us.” I’ve found access to so much more power in AA than just not drinking. The result of that is as the result of practicing all 12 Steps in every area of my life it has been dramatically transformed, especially in the areas the Book refers to as, “a much more important demonstration of our principles lies before us in our respective homes, occupations, and affairs.”

 

For me, to have used AA only to stop drinking and that’s all would be likened to a starving man who is fishing for minnows while standing on a whale. There is so much more power in AA to be had and used. As my terrific friend, Mark H used to say, “HOW FREE DO YOU WANT TO BE HOW GOOD CAN YOU STAND IT TO GET?”
