084 Another Bill Wilson’s Legacy

I was In 12 Steps and 12 Traditions’ Workshop yesterday when I realized it was January the 24th the day Bill Wilson, who wrote the 12 Steps and 12 Traditions passed away in 1971. We took a moment of silence in gratitude for him. He was still alive the first fourteen years of my sobriety. I had a chance to meet him two times but I could not entertain the thought, his strong personality intimidated me, as did any important person. I am so grateful our Father brought him into this world, to share with us. We have to believe in miracles, in Divine mercy when we realize what a good difference Bill and Dr. Bob, two outcasts has made. I am grateful for yesterday’s workshop at the prison, where I felt like I made a little good difference. They were so hungry for information on how to apply the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions. None of the inmates nor the other A.A. volunteers ever worked our new 12 and 12 Workbook. It was received and understood well enough that they will be able to work it on their own. The inmates agreed to work together using the Tri-partnership, with another inmate and their Higher Power. This opportunity allowed me to slay another one of my dragons. Would the workbook be effective for people with little or no A.A. experience? I say, yes at each beginning, I say, yes as the process move on, I say, yes at the end of a process with a grateful heart. Knowing we are all His children and I am a loving brother to all. Come let us love one another as He love us. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.

Lou-is suggested to Al Kohallek the two of them make a commit to do a 40-Day feasting on their individual heart's desire. Something important enough to each of them that they are willing to do what it takes to get it done. Also they plan to fast from everything contrary to that chosen desire. This project is to build the Spiritual, mental, physical, emotional and social equivalent or container for that Heart’s Desire. TODAY: YOU CHOOSE
