Commitment and right action key to good living

Postby Dallas » Tue Feb 16, 2010 1:53 am

COMMITMENT

Understanding is the key to right principles and attitudes, and right action is the key to good living. TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 125

There came a time in my program of recovery when the third stanza of the Serenity Prayer — “The wisdom to know the differenceâ€

The wisdom to know the difference is where I slip up.

Sometimes I know, other times I find out!

You find out quite quickly when you get the 2 confused!!

I seem to get the wisdom -- my problem is sometimes taking the wrong action when I already know what the right action is! :lol:

However, slowly and incrementally... I think I'm making a little progress! :wink:

Am I willing to give up the things I know are wrong for me to do. Although I know something is wrong with what I am about to do, do I have the courage not to act. If I act on something that I truly don't know is wrong and later find out that the action caused a problem for me or others I can take corrective actions and put that action in the I need not do that again block. It's when I make mistakes that I learn and grow. I can't afford to hide behind masks and say I didn't know something when the fact is I did and I can't beat myself up when I make a mistake.

Peace and Love Gunner

Well, I guess this is about taking responibility for my own actions (or not acgtions). This is very liberating thing because if I take resposibility I also have he chance to be the director of my own life ; I am not driven by the urge to get the next drink anymore. I have choices to lead my life.


Best Wishes
