Spiritual Principles On Call “Pay Forward” #50

Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is – Spiritual Principles On Call, Omnipresent. When I viewed A.A.’s Twelve Traditions as rules or regulations I had to abide by, I experienced little value personally. Once I began to view them as Spiritual Principles I applied them in every area of my life, they became vital to me. All of us are expressions of our Father, therefore at the center of our being are the Omnipresence Spiritual Principles. That means at some level all relationships are with our Father – Creator. A.A.’s Traditions give us a set of loving, powerful working tools for all our relationships, just as A.A.’s Twelve Steps gives us for our personal life. “There are two worlds: the world that we can measure with line and rule, and the world we feel with our hearts and imagination” Leigh Hunt. Rules and regulations build walls of separations. Our reaction to negative labels causes us all kinds of problems. Alcoholic is no longer a label but a disease and condition we have a great solution for. Coming from our heart, not just our head we respond to whatever pops up, having room to love, to serve and to heal. Most of us in A.A. have stopped responding to useless and harmful labels driven by rules and regulations. Let’s measure others and ourselves with our hearts, minds and souls; our love flowing freely. It’s OK to just think and speak about love and service, but far more fulfilling to do it. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
