I greet The Indwelling Spirit of Zeal.
Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is - Enthusiasm In Pursuit – of my heart’s desire is most important to me. I can state it in the form of an affirmation – I am dedicated, devoted and committed to do and to be our Father’s Love and Will, consciously known or unknown, 24/7. Zeal’s command is, “Go forward!” It’s a driving force that incites all my desires to action; an eternal urge, the zest for living. However zeal must be tempered with wisdom. Easy does it, but do it. For the active A.A. member practicing its spiritual principles in all their affairs, finds a joyous, happy and free life. To the not-sober alcoholic zeal can be the awakening to face the hideous Four Horsemen – Terror, Bewilderment, Frustration and Despair. Watch the pull of a giant locomotive; note how it slowly but steadily moves forward, inches at first but gradually increasing until its mile-long train swiftly disappears in the distance. We need not put all our enthusiasm into sharing with others, the unfoldment of our heart’s desire is of vital importance. Energy is zeal in motion, and is the forerunner of every effect. If our Higher Power is our Source we will do well to seek His guidance, asking Him to do through us His intention. We have then set in motion the machinery of the universe; however, we must be willing to take whatever action called for. Forgive all – giving Truth for error. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
