I greet The Indwelling Presence Awakening.
Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is - As We Understood Him. A.A. gives us the freedom to choose our Higher Power, as we understand Him or Her. In doing so, we have to take the responsibility for that choice. I choose to call my Higher Power, “Our Father.” I’ve been on a seek and find journey soon after I came into Alcoholics Anonymous, being He’s infinite my search will never end, which is OK with me. Let me note some of my ideas about Him. I believe He created us all and is an indwelling Presence within us all, transforming everything we eat and drink into what we call life. He is Spirit; and those of us, who love and worship Him must do so in spirit [consciousness) and truth. For the best human relationships we must love others as we love ourselves. We have never seen Him excepting as He manifests Himself through His works. His attributes are therefore brought into expression by humans, who are His children, in His image and likeness. I pray and meditate daily, which broadens and deepens my communicate skills with Him, and making more room for His grace and my understanding. Some of His common thought of attributes I accept: Omnipresence, Omnipotence, Omniscience, Love, Truth, Intelligence, principles and Life, to list a few. Note the promises on page 83 – 84 of Alcoholics Anonymous. How about page 60? “(c) That God could and would if He were sought.” Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
