This is Day Thirty-one of Lou-is' 40-Day feasting on his individual heart's desire, which is something he wants to attain and to fast from everything, which is unlike it. This project is to build the Spiritual, mental, physical, emotional and social equivalent or container to enable him to change and keep that change, by practice. I am dedicating one of my daily practices for each of the major characteristics of my mission. TODAY: ENOUGH LOVE

DAY THIRTY-ONE OF A FORTY-DAY PRACTICE

MY MISSION STATEMENT - I am devoted, dedicated, committed to experiencing Your Presence, Father consciously, consistently within me and everywhere present. I want to know, to realize, to live for Your Will for me, empowered by Your loving grace. My mission in now clear, I need, I want to share all I am given with whomever You Will, Father. I look to You as my only Source to provide me with everyone and everything it takes to carry out the Mission You gave me. Thank You.

TODAY: ENOUGH LOVE

When I changed one of Emmet Fox's affirmations to expand it's meaning more in alignment with my understanding of A.A. I realize both our/my Father and A.A. are love. I experienced each part of the affirmation I am calling, Enough Love. It is much like my A.A. serendipity journey and I’ve heard others reported the same experience. It is not difficult to understand why so many members of A.A. have used the works of Emmet Fox to enrich their Program.

They’re in no difficulty that enough love [of our Father by the pathway of A.A.] will not conquer. No disease that enough love [of our Father by the pathway of A.A.] will not heal. No door that enough love [of our Father by the pathway of A.A.] will not open. No gulf that enough love [of our Father by the pathway of A.A.] will not bridge. No wall that enough love [of our Father by the pathway of A.A.] will not throw down. No wrong that enough love [of our Father by the pathway of A.A.] will not correct.

It makes no difference how deeply seated the trouble, how hopeless the outlook, how muddled the tangle, how great the mistake; a sufficient realization of love [of our Father by the pathway of A.A.] will dissolve it all.

For every one person using our A.A. Program for an alcohol problem it has been reported that six people are using our 12 Step Program for a full range of the human condition.
