I Greet The Indwelling Revealer.
Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is - So What Is It? Three Eskimo children, who had never seen even a picture of an elephant, were blindfolded and led to an elephant, and asked what they were holding. The first child was handed the elephant’s tail; the child said it’s a rope. The second child took hold of the elephant’s ear; it’s a piece of leather; the child responded. The third child took hold of the elephant’s trunk; the child said, it’s a big hose. I was much like a blindfolded child; the elephant was in our living room. Grossly lacking communication skills accounted for much of my violence, and were blocking my true self. I succumb to frustration. I was irritable, and angry; I reacted violently or withdrew. I had a perpetual chip on my shoulder. I wanted to experience A.A.’s language of the heart. “We will not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it.” I believed If, I did not regret the past, I was still uncaring, unloving. “Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps,” gave me a whole new meaning about regretting the past. My worse defects have been transformed into workable assets. I do regret all the harm done, and a great deal of that harm; I’m unable to make a direct amends. However, I stopped doing the harm, and that’s making living amends. I’m letting our Father show me the way, truth and light. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
