Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is - What About Zeal? Father I do love You, and my Hero Your Son; our Loving Brother and all my Spiritual teachers. I am taught by your inspired words and my daily events. I want You and I need You and Yours. So far I have not achieved a consistent balance between giving of myself to others and giving of myself to myself. When I am given an inspired idea I tend to run with it. Talking about a “great idea”, too much before it’s done, my inspiration is wasted and the project stalls out. The nature of this alcoholic is lack of balance or even the desire for it. One suggestion I can use is, watch the pull of a giant locomotive; note how it slowly but steadily moves forward, almost by inches at first but gradually increasing until it swiftly disappears in the distance. A great idea, starting off slowly and increase our speed; no doubt from a nonalcoholic. Easy does it, but do it. Zeal is the affirmative impulse; its command is, “Go forward.” If the going forward is not tempered with wisdom it is likely to burnout before it’s done. I do want to do and to be our Father’s Will and His love so much, I must learn to stop, look and listen, then act. Oops, I have to hurry up and do my meditation before I run out of time. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
