093 Restating our Principles

"Let us restate our Principle. We are surrounded by an Infinite Possibility…It can pass into expression through us only as we consciously allow It to do so. Therefore, we should have faith in It." (The Science of Mind, page 46) I have an abiding faith in and of our Father’s loving grace. My faith began in our A.A. Program as I saw other living it. When I began living the A.A. Principles I received the faith of our Father that it would work for me. As I practiced the Program the best I could my faith turned into reality, enabling me to have an increasing faith of our Father, of and in our Program. Early in my A.A. experience, I had a driving need for a working relationship with a Higher Power. I was not alone. Our Big Book makes a strong statement for people like me on page 45. "Lack of power, that was our dilemma. We had to find a power by which we could live, and it had to be a Power greater than ourselves. Obviously…Well, that’s exactly what this book is about. Its main object is to enable you to find a Power greater than yourself which will solve your problem." I set out on a radical journey, with other A.A. members, seeking our Father. I accepted the premise that I had to stay sober to stay on my serendipity Spiritual journey. That freed me to spend much of my time and energy on my primary purpose, seeking, finding and living my Spiritual mission, embodied in Alcoholics Anonymous. I am judged by some A.A.’s and some Christian for not complying with a traditional path, whatever that is. "…contempt prior to investigation" (Big Book page 568). My workbooks and workshops are based on my radical studies and dedicated service within A.A.’s Program and our A.A. literature. My greatest Hero ever is Jesus Christ and I live His teaching daily embodied in our A.A. Program. I agree with some who believe A.A. is much like early Christianity, by living It. Come let us love one another as we are Loved. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
