Don’t Leave Home Without Me “Pay Forward” #68

Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is – Don’t Leave Home Without Me.
A.A. has turned out to be a spiritual journey for me, a call into the unknown. “Leave your father’s house, your friends, relatives, and property, and come into the land that I will show you” Genesis 12:1. My way of life was not working to say the least. I had to stop drinking; it too had stopped doing its illusionary “job.” I was called out of my childish, self-centered ways, into an unknown land of responsibility. I did not have the remotest idea where this spiritual journey was taking me. “Eye has not seen, ear has not heard, nor has it so much as dawned on man what God has prepared for those who love Him” 1 Cor. 2:9. The way for me opened up when I surrendered everything I thought I knew, and choosing His Will, His Love to be done. It is becoming clear that everything I am experiencing is a lesson that moves me on my spiritual path, and my spiritual growth. I could say every encounter is a holy one; every circumstance is an opening for a miracle for me and others. Let me remember to credit where credit is due, our Father. We are being prepared for our spiritual journey long before we enter the spiritual path. I am learning that it is an inside job; we don’t have to be limited by outside conditions. This is an important distinction between materialism and spiritual Truth. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
