Conscious Contact with God is the most important thing in my life from Lawrie C.

Here is copy of what we discussed during the group this week from Lawrie C.’s book, which is also posted on the blog.

2. Abstinence is NOT the most important thing in my life without exception; the consciousness of the presence of God is.

ANNOTATION: Page 51: “When many hundreds of people are able to say that the consciousness of the Presence of God is today the most important fact of their lives . . . “

The point is that so long as I live on a spiritual basis working the Twelve Steps, I am sane in relation to food.

So long as I am sane, I am free from any temptation to return to the insanity of the food.

Therefore I am abstinent. It’s not because I work at being abstinent. It’s because I work at being sane!
