Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is – Happy And Usefully Whole. It takes humans a long time to wake up and live a few simple Truths. Many of these have been around since the beginning of time, or at least the beginning of recorded time. “Let it be done unto you as you believe.” “Your faith has made you whole.” "A.As’ Twelve Steps are a group of principles, spiritual in their nature, which, if practiced as a way of life, can expel the obsession to drink and enable the sufferer to become happy and usefully Whole" Foreword Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions. My life was so fragmented when I arrived at Alcoholics Anonymous, I could not believe I could be anything that resembled wholeness. “It can pass into expression through us only as we consciously allow It to do so” The Science of Mind, page46. I had to apply A.As’ spiritual principles, clearing away the wreckage of my past, before I was able to accept our Father’s mercy and mercy. I was in the process of recovery for some time before I could open up to a way of living that had been far beyond my “pay grade.” A.A.’s way of life has revealed the gift of purpose; the reason why we are here. Now, I am able to affirm and mean it with all my heart, mind and soul that, I am committed, dedicated and devoted to be and to do our Father’s Love and Will, known and unknown. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
