No pain, no gain my friend.
I'm glad God is still lovin' me.

By taking the steps and continuing to take them and practicing the principles, something happens that transforms me. I deliberately keep from analyzing it , because it's so far beyond my comprehension! But, it's a fact, a reality, ( the GREAT REALITY ) and it's been proven in my life and those of many others that I know.
Dallas is absolutely right about a complete change of thought & attitude being the key to trash-canning those resentments.

HEY, I said that! Wait ... I read that some where ... like pages 64-67. Specifically pg. 66, "resentment is infinitely grave. We found that it is fatal!" ... "If we were to live, we had to be free of anger. The grouch and the brainstorm were not for us. They may be the dubious luxury of normal men, but for the alcoholic these things are poison."
(I looked up brainstorm. I'm sure the definition the BB refers to is "1 : a violent transient fit of insanity". Another dictionary says, "A sudden state of confusion" I'm SURE it didn't mean, "A bright idea" ).
Aw, shoot, I'll let Dallas say he read it, too.
I question (but don't criticize) people who say they "did" step 4 in a day. Must be 18 years old and lived in a closet. Ok ... I'm projecting my 56 depraved years.
After readin pages 65-67, I knew it wasn't enough to DO step 4. Didn't matter if I just KNOW those things are in me. The purpose of knowing is to HAVE THEM REMOVED. THAT ain't easy. Takes time and pain.
It's a continuing effort, awareness, for some to be worked out of me as HP does His job. The result will be a complete change of mind, attitude, heart, and spirit ... FREEDOM ! My security balnket stinks anyway from holding it too close. I don't need it any more to keep from making myself vulnerable. It was actually the fortress that kept me from enjoying the wide open wonders of the world.
YOU GO, GOD ! DO YOUR STUFF ! I ain't afraid. Ya got me! Take it!
Love y'all. I'm lovin' this mental exercise. Or is it exorcize? HHmmmm ...
