175 Can It Be?

Can it be that we can be the salt of the earth…and a light of the world?  Is it possible that someone like me can be the salt of the earth and a light of the world?  Well I believe that all things are possible with our Higher Power.  These two principles are realized in our Twelve Step and clear in Step Twelve.

What salt symbolizes or what its nature is?  Let’s look at two which are common to most. 

  1. Salt is a preservative.  In AA’s Step Twelve we carry the message to others and we practice the AA principles in all our affairs.  These two actions preserve AA and our way of life.
  2. Salt is seasoning, which adds zest or flavor.  When we live this AA way of life it does give our everyday life zest and flavor.

What does light symbolize or what is its nature?

  1. Light – is perceived by the normal unaided human eye.  By living this AA way of life we’re able to perceive normal or better than normal with unaided human perception.
  2. Light – by living this AA way of life, many of us experience the Source of light.
  3. Light – our Program provides information, illumination or clarification.
  4. Can we be the salt of the earth?  (YES).  Can we be a light of the world?  (YES).   Living AA’s way of life, the best we can, we are salt of the earth and we are a light of the world.

QUESTIONS:

  1. Can you accept yourself as the salt of the earth?  How do you express it?
  2. Can you accept yourself as a light of the world?  How do you express it?

Random Awakening

At times I am sure that I am praying for my Higher Power’s will and deep down in my heart I know it is the perfect gift to ask for here and now, but no gift is forthcoming.
