Do We Need That “God” Stuff? “Pay Forward” # 19

I greet The Indwelling Co-Creator.

Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is – Do We Need That “God” Stuff?Before you and I came into this world, Science and religion had already divorce one another.  As human abilities became more inventive, effective and creative their ego’s illusion of separation expanded into a world view.  “We don’t need that “God” stuff.”  When people in great need began to realize they did need a solution which included religious/spiritual and scientific union, they demanded a reconciliation.  Too bad they didn’t have Alcoholics Anonymous in those days. “What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”  This statement has a spiritual meaning beyond a wedding vow.  The year before I came to A.A. I had failed in every area of my life, and I had no way out.  I just wanted not to wake up, to die, but I even failed at taking my own life, and I could not stay sober.  Before my awakening as the results of living Alcoholics Anonymous’ way of life, I remember hearing a simple prayer that touched me, “If I die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take.”  I had no religious connection at the time.  I know now that we all have an invisible means of support, known or unknown.  Hitting my personal bottom was as if I was dying.  I have had at least four “deaths” and four rebirths or four transformations - regenerations of my soul.  Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
