I greet The Indwelling Encourager.
Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is - Encouragement. “Flatter me, and I may not believe you. Criticize me, and I may not like you. Ignore me, and I may not forgive you. Encourage me, and I will not forget you" (William Arthur Ward). They're so many ways we encourage one another in Alcoholics Anonymous, starting with staying sober, shows up at meetings, sharing our stories; we can all list the times we were encouraged. Today let us “accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative." Let our hearts and minds be filled by the love we are. Our love is a healing power touching everything into wholeness. Our love is an extension of our Father’s love. Come let us inspire each other to love more, to heal, to teach and to forgive. “Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you” Diana Spencer. That indwelling Presence within each of us already knows how to do that. Divine love dissolves all that opposes true thought and thus smooths out every obstacle that presents itself, that’s encouraging. When love harmonizes our consciousness, we find that our outer affairs are put in order. A.A. offers us all the spiritual tools the chip away all that is not our purpose for being. Let us encourage each other to accept our Father’s individually Divine Design. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
