GIVING IT AWAY

Though they knew they must help other alcoholics if they would remain sober, that motive became secondary. It was transcended by the happiness they found in giving themselves to others.

ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 159

    Those words, for me, refer to a transference of power, through which God as I understand Him enters my life. Through prayer and meditation, I open channels, then I establish and improve my conscious contact with God, Through action I then receive the power I need to maintain my sobriety each day. By maintaining my spiritual condition, by giving away what has been so freely given to me, I am granted a daily reprieve.
