064 The Torchbearer

"To you from failing hands we throw the torch; be yours to hold it high." (John McCrae) When I feel boxed in, I can take a drive in the country at night, looking up I can see light that originated billions of years ago. I get a deep feeling of expansion and reverence. I see lights that are beyond limits for me. When we shine, we have no limits. I pray we are becoming luminary and light the way. Let us, trusting our Father, pick up the torch and light the darkness. In A.A., if we choose, have an abundance of opportunities to be a torchbearer, lighting up the way for another alcoholic. There are no limits to the effects our enlightened behavior will have. It takes commitment, energy and passion to light the darkness, we are capable in union with our Father within. When we see someone drop the torch, instead of judging them, let’s pick it up and light the path on our serendipity journey Home. Come let us love one another and carry the torch at hand. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.

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