From the Daily Reflections of February 15;
Are these extravagant promises? We think not. They are being fulfilled among us — sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. They will always materialize if we work for them. (Alcoholics Anonymous, page 84).
One of the most important things A.A. has given me, in addition to freedom from booze, is the ability to take “right action.” It says the promises will always materialize if I work for them. Fantasizing about them, debating them, preaching about them and faking them just won’t work. I’ll remain a miserable, rationalizing dry drunk. By taking action and working the Twelve Steps in all my affairs, I’ll have a life beyond my wildest dreams.
END OF QUOTE
It is not extravagant to believe that my Higher Power will honor and empower my work in recovery. The Gomu (God of my understanding) that has the power to overcome my alcoholic addiction and does so, is motivated by a specific loving interest in seeing my dreams fulfilled. If I invest myself in this reality, my life is guided by daily work in spiritual inspiration. It is a good life and I am grateful for it.
