Endigar 306

This is my paraphrase of several excerpts taken from the Big Book:

The first requirement is that we be convinced that any life run on isolating self-protection and enthronement can hardly be a success.  Above everything, we alcoholics must be rid of this kind of selfishness.  We must, or it kills us!  The concept of the God of my understanding makes that possible.  We had to quit playing God.  It didn’t work.

Next we decided that hereafter in this drama of life, GOMU was going to be our Director.  She-He-It is the Principal; we are the agents.  She-He-It is the Parent, and we are the children ready to be reparented beyond the limits of our earthly ones.  Most good ideas are simple, and this concept was the keystone of the new and triumphant arch through which we passed to freedom.

Once this has been digested into our lives, all sorts of remarkable things followed.  We had a new all-powerful Employer, that provided what we needed, if we kept close to She-He-It and performed our assigned work well.

As we felt new power flow in, as we enjoyed peace of mind, as we discovered we could face life successfully, as we became conscious of Her-His-Its presence, we began to lose our fear.  We were reborn.
