077 I Love Doing What I Do

Serving others is only work if there is something else we rather be doing. Yes, taking timeout to help another may be inconvenient and demanding but our sobriety or sanity will be enriched. Serving others in Alcoholics Anonymous is one of the most important things we can do. No matter the difficulty we may be going through, work with another can save our day. Our Step Twelve is our Golden Key to happiness, healing and becoming usefully whole. That feeling of separation we made up is exposed as our self-centeredness when we stop thinking of ourselves and think of what we can do for someone else. With a little Twelve Stepping what seem like work to others turned into joyful play for me. For the first time in my life I felt like my life made a good difference. A.A.’s can make a good difference 24/7 if we choose to. Doing something we love we are contributing not only to the world but also to our own fulfillment. We learn while we are sharing our experience and our sharing helps others cope with life, and then we are all being given a gift. Our A.A. way of life is not work, but love made visible. Let us give of ourselves now and not let not giving of ourselves the past we regret. Come let us love one another. Thy Love, ThyWill be done.
