Gods gifts

We do the footwork and accept whats being given to us freely on a daily basis.

Basic Text, p. 47


Our relationship with our Higher Power is a two-way street.  In prayer, we speak and God listens.  When we meditate, we do our best to listen for the will of our Higher Power.  We know that we are responsible for our part of the relationship.  If we do not pray and listen, we shut our Higher Power out of our lives.

When we think about our relationship with our Higher Power, its important to remember which one we are: the powerless one.  We can ask for guidance; we can ask for willingness or strength; we can ask for knowledge of our Higher Powers willbut we cannot make demands.  The God of our understandingthe one with the powerwill fulfill that half of the relationship by giving us exactly what we need, when we need it.

We need to take action every day to keep our relationship with a Higher Power alive.  One way we do this is by applying the Eleventh Step.  Then we remember our own powerlessness and accept the will of a Power greater than ourselves.


Just for today:  In my relationship with my Higher Power, I am the powerless one.  Remembering who I am, today I will humbly accept the gifts of the God I understand.

Living looking in surplus by

  • Legal drugs not resolving issues
  • Suits made and maintained by sacrificing beings (sheepskin, unfairly paid labor - dirty backend)
  • Wax in hair rather than like healthy diet

= burdens not a problem?
