Title Brief Description
- 1 Upon Awakening Al Kohallek (Alcoholic) asked Lou-is Pazeniton (Lou is passing it on) for an affirmation, prayer or something to start the day when he first awakened. Otherwise, whatever his mood was when he awakened colored his whole day. The following was Lou-is suggestion.
001 A Good Friday My “Good Friday” begins with my owning what is in my skull, my personal “reality” and my surrendering it. Any day we begin our Steps can be thought of as our “Good Friday”.
002 Fourth Dimension “I was soon to be catapulted into what I like to call the fourth dimension of existence.” (Alcoholics Anonymous page 8) That was Bill W.’s experience but what about me?
003 The First Day Today is the first day of the New Year and the first day of the rest of my life. I want my life to make a good difference.
004 Where Does Fear Go Where does the darkness go in the presence of light? Where does fear go in the presence of Love? Neither darkness nor fear has a place of their own.
005 The Gift of Denial Denial can be a special gift of grace.
006 Be Still “Be still, and know that I am God”. This is the core of Centering Prayer or Contemplation and a handy tool for Step Eleven.
007 Back To The Basics These Three Spiritual Gifts Are The Real UnSpoken Basics. Yes, we understand that we have to consider our primary addiction but these Spiritual Gifts go to the core of life without them, we are Powerless, Loveless and unable to practice being the created individual we are.
008 Building Equivalents It is wonderful to have a Spiritual Awakening but a better one to stay awaken and practice that awakening Spiritual, mental, physical, emotional and social equivalents.
009 Chip Away All That Is Not Part of the healing process of our Program is to chip away all that is not our individual Created self.
010 Anyway People are unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered, Love Them Anyway
011 Disempowering Habits Sharing some ideas about using our program, Alcoholics Anonymous to enable us to “practice these principles in all our affairs.”
012 AA PREAMBLE ( A PARODY ) In case you didn't know, Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship designed to administer to a bunch of ex drunks whose only qualifications for membership is that they cannot hold their liquor and don't want to learn how.
013 I must have decided In this human condition our power is most often determined by our decisions.
014 If You Were Busy If we would busy ourselves giving away everything we want, like love, forgiveness, kindness, understanding, we would find ourselves living the life we dreamed of.
015 Inspiration I ask for inspiration this morning as I often do as soon as I am conscious of being consciously awake. The mood I am in filters the messages I receive.
016 Let's Set The Record Stright We have failed many times, but we are not failures. We have been foolish, but we are not fools.
017 Love Your Enemies A wise Teacher once said that we need to love our enemy, and Emmet Fox once wrote that our only real enemy is our fear, so how am I to love fear?
018 Old dogs new tricks! However, we are not old dogs nor is our Alcoholics Anonymous Program, or our Workbooks or our Workshops a trick.
019 Divine Food Shopping Center was told about the Divine Food Shopping Centers and there nearest location or about online shopping. These Shopping Centers are open 24/7, everything we need is available, and there are five departments.
020 Planting Seeds What ever you want more of in your life experience plant more of those seeds.
021 The Path to Liberation Alcoholics Anonymous is a pathway to liberation
022 Transcendence Have you experienced your world view transcending your pre-Program limitations?
023 Mission Element - Awakening I believe that Alcoholics Anonymous is a Spiritual way of life. As the result of working the Steps and daily living them we are Spiritually Awakened.
024 Mission Element - Love Yes, I believe that God is Love. “Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself” (Kahlil Gibran). I believe our Loving Father has no other desire for each of His creations than our fulfillment as He Wills, as He Loves.
025 Mission Element - Healing Father I am so grateful that you placed me in this healing A.A. way of life. I am part of your healing crew.
026 Mission Element - Teaching We are all students and teachers. We are teachable students for our heart’s desire, driven toward it by our Higher Self.
027 Mission Element - Forgiveness We are doing a workshop on forgiveness and my question is what forgiveness am I to focus on. Unless I am in denial I don’t have lasting resentments against individuals.
028 Mission Element - Empower I am so grateful for an answer to many prayers and other “solutions” and temporary fixes. I am calling this defect “misusers” of power or title.
029 Winners And Losers Let us bless everyone and everything today, that way we will be able to believe everyone and everything will bless us, out of enlightened self-interest.
