Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is – Climbing Our Mount Everest. I could never understand why anyone would climb a dangerous mountain. After all that hard work and they spend very little time at the top. When I asked someone, that knows a lot about the sport, I was told climbing was the goal, not the mountain top. I’ve been known to make a mountain out of a molehill. At one time, just not taking a drink, and seeking peace; real sobriety one day at a time was equal to climbing Mount Everest. Each daily climb was an affirmation and a hope that I could reach my sobriety summit. Now, I understand the meaning that the “climbing” was important for building my confidence in A.As’ spiritual principles working. By our Father’s grace, I have not spent too much time or energy on anyone of my “plateaus.” I learn to ask more of our Father, of Alcoholics Anonymous’ way of life, and of myself. Faith in our Father’s Love and Will is our spiritual assurance, and the power to do the seemingly impossible. My primary work is the use the spiritual tools, I have been so freely given, to do and to be the created individual I am. Our earthly consciousness is to use our creative power to bring about our given purposeful life; to serve, to love one another by passing on a way of life that works. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
