Endigar 363 ~ The Teaching is Never Over

From Today’s Daily Reflections;

Abandon yourself to God as you understand God.  Admit you 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.  May God bless yo and keep you – until then.  (Alcoholics Anonymous, page 164)

These words put a lump in my throat each time I read them.  In the beginning it was because I felt, “Oh no!  The Teaching is over.  Now I’m on my own.  It will never be this new again.”  Today I feel deep affection for our A.A. pioneers when I read the passage, realizing that it sums up all of what I believe in, and strive for, and that  – with God’s blessing – the teaching is never over, I’m never on my own, and every day is brand new.



I harvest the following magical ideas from this reflection:

The Fellowship of the Spirit in which I am never on my own,

The Road of Happy Destiny in which the teaching never ends,

And every day is made new by Gomu (God of my understanding),

one day at a time.
