Endigar 395 ~ Joyful Discoveries

From Today’s Daily Reflections;

We realize we know only a little. God will constantly disclose more to you and to us. Ask Him in your morning meditation what you can do each day for the man who is still sick. The answers will come, if your own house is in order. But obviously you cannot transmit something you haven’t got. See to it that your relationship with Him is right, and great events will come to pass for you and countless others. This is the Great Fact for us.  (Alcoholics Anonymous, page 164)

Sobriety is a journey of joyful discovery. Each day brings new experience, awareness, greater hope, deeper faith, broader tolerance. I must maintain these attributes or I will have nothing to pass on.

Great events for this recovering alcoholic are the normal everyday joys found in being able to live another day in God’s grace.



I used to think that the phrase “obviously you cannot transmit something you haven’t got” to be an admonishment to go out and get it so that I will be fit to transmit.  That is what my perfectionism hears.  That is not the Great Fact that this observation leads to.  By myself, isolated, I am powerless.  I simply cannot become more.  I need to connect with a Higher Power.  When I do connect with this loving Source, more is disclosed even though I know only a little by myself.  The order of my house is to seek intimate connection with Gomu.  Joyful discoveries of sobriety are the many “I love yous” whispered and shouted along the way.  We are not alone.  This is the Great Fact for me.
