The root of all our troubles...

"THE ROOT OF OUR TROUBLES"

Selfishness--self-centeredness! That, we think, is the
root of all our troubles.
ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 62

How amazing the revelation that the world, and everyone
in it, can get along just fine with or without me. What
a relief to know that people, places and things will be
perfectly okay without my control and direction. And
how wordlessly wonderful to come to believe that a power
greater than me exists separate and apart from myself.
I believe that the feeling of separation I experience
between me and God will one day vanish. In the meantime,
faith must serve as the pathway to the center of my
life.

That is a great one ! And having faith is really a very libertaing experience...For me it means that I do not have to worry , that I do not have to control anymore. I am a controlfreak, and giving up control is really a hard one for me... :lol: But it´s important because that give smie freedom and rest.

Best Wishes
