Endigar 400 ~ Lighting the Dark Past

From Today’s Daily Reflections;

Cling to the thought that, in God’s hands, the dark past is the greatest possession you have – the key to life and happiness for others. With it you can avert death and misery for them.  (Alcoholics Anonymous, page 124)

No longer is my past an autobiography; it is a reference book to be taken down, opened and shared. Today as I report for duty, the most wonderful picture comes through. For, though this day be dark – as some days must be – the stars will shine even brighter later. My witness that they do shine will be called for in the very near future. All my past will this day be a part of me, because it is the key, not the lock.

This is new to me.  My past is no longer my personal possession.  When I entered this program and demand recovery, hungered for it, the possession of my past was transferred to the very program that prevented the tragic and logic end to that past.  It makes sense.  I had not considered it.  I am considering it now.  Oh Gomu (God of my understanding), help me incorporate this reality.
