I think I'll keep coming back!!
The wonderful promise of Step 2! "Came to believe" is such a refreshing promise for me! And, I didn't know it.... because "came to believe" was not "come to believe" (past-tense), of "having arrived"... but, a moment by moment experience for the rest of my life in "coming to believe." Something that's new and refreshing each day and each moment.
At one time, I may have known all that I know now... but, then I was born! And, after I was born I started to think in terms of "me and my life" instead of "we and our lives". When I look into the eyes of the suffering and the sick -- I get a chance to see my eyes.... which to me, as I understand it, now "our eyes." Conscious separation was my curse and conscious unity is my blessing. When I see the still suffering alcoholic, I see me because me is we. I can remember when I was sick and suffering and shaking and nervous and afraid. And, through my experience I can see what happened to me and what I am like know... and that I can reach out to the we of me and offer hope, and live the living message that if I could stop shaking and get better, so can we.
God is good. Thanks for letting me share and thank you for sharing! Without all of you -- there would be no me!
