Our Limitations Are Not Defects “Pay Forward” #84

Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is - Our Limitations Are Not Defects. They are only statements of our current supply. A place to leave from or accept and seek a solution. If you have ever seen the giant cranes at one of the ports of entry unloading the shipping containers off a ship makes a great metaphor. I have never been a weight lifter, when I reach my limit, I break it apart in smaller parts or I get help. Before I reach my limit, spiritually, mentally, emotionally or socially, if I’m practicing A.A.’s spiritual principles in all my affairs, I turn to our Father at each beginning for whatever I may need, He does my heavy lifting. He does the lifting of the smaller stuff through me and my helpers. To stay ahead of my limitations I start my day by devoting my time and energy doing my mission’s prep-work. This includes prayer and meditation to improve my conscious contact with our Father, as A.A. suggest in Step Eleven. This is the start of my “Pay Forward” for the day. Paying Forward is a way of expressing faith and trust in A.A’s way of life; including a willingness to forgive us all, healing, loving, as I’m directed. It is an action and action is the magic word. “We should never lose sight of the fact that the soul is on the pathway of an endless and ever-expanding experience, and that only by expansion can it evolve” The Science of Mind. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
