023 Mission Element - Awakening

 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. We are given a purpose, a mission in life allowing us to make a good difference, daily if we choose. I believe any major Spiritual way of life has ten elements. Perhaps given to us in a different order but all ten elements will come if the doors of our consciousness are open and clear of clutter. Often come at a significant price; the detaching from our personal "reality’s" illusions of separation. Our A.A. Program is great at chipping away all that is not our mission. When I experienced a Spiritual Awakening, one of the ten elements of my mission, I realize I always had a silent invisible Omnipresent Power within doing the works we call life. I realize suddenly what used to seem important isn’t. The people and events that used to upset me don’t anymore. What becomes significant is being the individual I am not what others judge me to be. Practicing these principles in all my affairs is not only significant but joyfully fulfilling. I awakened at a place I had always been in union with our Father within. Sharing my mission elements is a gift, not a burden, sharing those things I want instead of the meaningless stuff I don’t want. I love this way of life. Come let us be about our Father’s Business. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.

Random Awakening

I was dreaming I was standing at the door of the wall-less prison I had “made up” with my person “reality” my dream world, another one of my illusions of separation.
