078 In His Name

078 In His Name

Our Alcoholics Anonymous Program gives us a set of great Spiritual tools. Most of the great Spiritual teachers, masters come around to the reality that God is love. A.A. gives us the tools to express the love we are, which is an important characteristic or nature of our Creator. By grace we have the characteristics to live our purpose, in His Name. Paraphrasing Step Twelve; Having a Spiritual awakening, His Love, we’re blessed practicing love in all our affairs, in our Father’s image and likeness. What if we took one of His Characteristics, also ours, one at a time, one day at a time to practice in all this day’s affairs? Today I choose to focus on one of the most important Charteristics, love. I started my day by praying for all I need to share all the love I am today. I am meditating on our Father’s unconditional Love and its meaning and some of its expressions. I choose to consciously think about all the six loves and how I can express them. Each action I take I ask myself; "is this a loving thing to do"? If I believe it is; I willing, joyfully do it. I dwell within on loving emotions and when a not loving feeling popup I surrender it quickly and return to love. As I share my life with others I extend the appropriate love first silently, then openly if called for. For many years I sought out ways to practice the Presence of our Father in all my affairs. This I believe is a great way to live it in His Name, one Charteristic at a time. Come let us love one another. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.

Yes, I believe that God is Love. “Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself” (Kahlil Gibran). I believe our Loving Father has no other desire for each of His creations than our fulfillment as He Wills, as He Loves.
