Power of the 12-Step Process and the gift of that power to the 12 Keys to the Kingdom.

Power of the 12-Step Process and the gift of that power to the 12 Keys to the Kingdom. 

From the book Alcoholics Anonymous: "In spite of the great increase in the size and span of this Fellowship, at its core it remains simple and personal. Each day, somewhere in the world, recovery begins when one alcoholic talks with another alcoholic, sharing experience, strength, and hope."

What is the Twelve Step Model? How is it a "treatment for alcoholism" or "alcohol abuse?"

 "A twelve-step program is a set of guiding principles (accepted by members as 'spiritual principles,' based on the approved literature) outlining a course of action for recovery from addiction, compulsion, or other behavioural problems. Originally proposed by Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) as a method of recovery from alcoholism, the Twelve Steps were first published in the book Alcoholics Anonymous: The Story of How More Than One Hundred Men Have Recovered from Alcoholism in 1939. The method was then adapted and became the foundation of other twelve-step programs. Twelve-step methods have been adopted to address a wide range of substance-abuse and dependency problems."

"Addiction treatment" WORKS! There is addiction help out there and "addiction recovery" is possible. If you are battling "alcohol addiction" there are people who know EXACTLY what it is like! 

From the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous: "Abandon yourself to God as you understand God. Admit your faults to Him and to your fellows. Clear away the wreckage of your past. Give freely of what you find and join us. We shall be with you in the Fellowship of the Spirit, and you will surely meet some of us as you trudge the Road of Happy Destiny."

contemplative monk Br. David Steindl-Rast.

"When I go within myself, I feel that I have discovered something over which had no power. Life and death are constant changes, but I have something that is one and unchanging." So says renowned contemplative monk Br. David Steindl-Rast. Is this the deathless soul that survives the ego's death? Is this what we are all here to look for?

Assignment Higher Power

Simple techniques and small daily meditations make major changes to our lives. Progressing in life becomes easier in a balanced state of mind. Imagine a bicycle: you need to balance it successfully before moving forward.

The danger of taking life too seriously as a spiritual person

Life is too serious to take it seriously.   I see all things new.   My mind is like that of a child. New.

Han Shan ( 9th century)

cold mountain, tribute to han shan
There's a tree that existed before the woods,
In age twice as old.
Its roots suffered as the valley changed,
Its leaves deformed by wind and frost.
People all laugh at its withered aspect,
Caring nothing about the core's beauty.
When the bark is stripped off,
Only essence remains. 

 - Han Shan ( 9th century)
