This week we w read the story The Vicious Cycle in the AA Big Book, and then discussed it together.
The notes I have are:
We have to practice what we preach: “In pointing out to the new man his wrong attitudes and actions is really taking my own inventory; if I expect him to change, I have to work on myself too.” (AA BB: 230:1)
We also read the chapter “The Will Of God” in the book The Spiritual Self by Dr. Abraham Twerski (2000: Hazelden).
A nice quote from this chapter is: “We can only arrive at what is truly God’s will if we eliminate the personal interests that are the products of our character defects.” (p.83:1)
For our next meeting, we will continue with our step study and read The Doctor’s Opinion in the AA Big Book.
I am so grateful to be sharing this journey with all of you!
Thank you all for sharing your experience, strength and hope.
“Together we can do what we can never do alone.”
In love and service,
