I greet The Indwelling Presence.
Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is – Be Faithful. "We are called upon not to be successful, but to be faithful."[Mother Teresa] So what’s best to be faithful to? I believe it is to be the individual we are created to be, honoring the Individual Divine Design. “To thy own self be true.” And, be faithful to our Father/Creator. For me, that’s living A.A.’s spiritual program. Doing that, I believe we will affect all of humanity in a loving way, caring out our given purpose. We do not have to be a great leader; we need only to take care of what is in front of us. Come let us love one another and do our Father’s Will. Let us stop giving to other people, circumstance the right to determine our happiness, joy and freedom, or the lack of it. A.A. gives us the tools to seek and find our Higher Power and our true created Higher Self. By making someone or something my Source instead of our Father blocks the way, the truth, and the light. I’ve applied the same principle I have for my other defects; once an alcoholic always an alcoholic. When I accepted the reality that I am an alcoholic I stopped blaming and explaining why I drank as I did. I drank because that’s what alcoholics do. Once a Source giver away, always a Source giver away; excepting that defect enabled me to stop blaming and explaining my power-outage. Thy Love Thy Will be done.
