052 Nine Elements Of Love – Sincerity

 

NINE ELEMENTS OF LOVE – NINTH SINCERITY

For 40 days I used this affirmation – I am sincere in all I do, say, think, feel, share and pray. I search for the truth and a consciousness of Your Holy Attributes, Father. Because we are, I am created in Your image and likeness, Father, means that we have, I have in some tiny degree the same attributes as our Creator. I believe the following are Your, mine, our Attributes, Father: Life, Love, Truth, Reality, Spirit, Soul, Consciousness, Wisdom, Intelligence, Universal Principles, Omnipresence, Omnipotence and Omniscience. With a humble, unbiased heart, mind and soul, I realize these attributes. I rejoice in what I find, and I freely pass it on.

When I think of the word sincerity I am reminded of our Third Tradition, The only requirement for A.A. membership is a desire to stop drinking. At one time this Tradition read that we had to have an honest desire. It was a wise move to take the honest out for the newcomer. For many of us the word honesty was out of the question when it came to our drinking. After living the Program for some time many of us could handle having honesty and sincerity tacked on, but I agree with the wisdom to leave it out to start with.

A naïve person asked a bank robber why he robbed banks, and he replied, because that is where the money is. When I experienced my Higher Power doing for me what I could not do for myself, I sincerely wanted to go to where He was present. Where I could find an abundance of everything and everyone I needed. So I turn to our Father with a sincere and honest desire to know and do His will. A demonstration of enlighten self-interest is turning to the one Source, our Higher Power for all my needs. A.A. is a good place to realize the Presence of our Higher Power.
