A 40-day Radical Training Commitment Theme For Day 6 – One-Of-A-Kind “Pay Forward” #85


Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is - Radical Training Theme For Day 6 – One-Of- A-Kind. I was driven by my fears and illusions; I was governed by my selfish self-centeredness. As I awakened as the result of living the spiritual principles, freely given in Alcoholics Anonymous, miracles do happen. One of the greatest was in the spirit of the Saint Francis Prayer. One of my worst defects was transformed into enlightened self-interest. “O Divine master grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console, to be understood as to understand, to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive. It is in pardoning that we are pardoned. And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen. I was not to wait on the perfect condition, now is the time. I’m given whatever it takes. “This above all: To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man” (Shakespeare). The road to be happy, joyous and free is to seek and find our Father/Creator’s one-of-kind Divine design, and live it. “Greater love has no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends.” Friendship is based on what we have in common; A.A. gives us the opportunities to have lots of friends. A.A. gives the tools to chip-a-way all that is not our True self. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
