333 FLU Season

333 FLU Season

I was dreaming about unconditional love and when I awakened I continued to think, pray and meditate on this great prize. Alcoholics are known for their selfishness and self-centeredness. If we are living the AA Program we find that self-centeredness is transformed into enlightened Self-interest. We do loving things because it is best for us. When active in the AA Program we find ourselves unconditionally loving a new comer. We welcome him or her with open arms, not concerned with their past. We just want them to keep coming back and pray they get sober and learn to embrace our simple AA Program. That’s one case for unconditional love. Some of my family did not approve of Alcoholics Anonymous for me. I was told by family "Now that you’re sober stop wasting your time hanging out with alcoholics and do something productive." That reminded me of another unconditional love I experienced when I fell in love with someone disapproved by my family. I didn’t care about my lover’s past or what others thought. I just wanted to be with that person the rest of my life. The question is not if we can unconditionally love others but what can we do to make that love more inclusive. My greatest Hero said, "We are to love one another as He loved us." That is without conditions; no matter what we have done or not done we are loved. I read this morning that we are in the FLU Season [Forever Loving Us]. I have had a taste of receiving and giving unconditional love. It’s O.K. when I fall short of unconditional love but it is not O.K. not to give it my best. I learned that I cannot believe that I have anything that I am unwilling to give. I will not wait until I am perfect at unconditional love. I now embrace my fear of failing or being a fool, surrendering it, which disempowers that fear. Come let us love one another. Thy Love be done.

Like the wasp I experience an illusionary way out of my entrapment and hit a glass wall.
