Endigar 500 ~ We Become Willing . . .

From Today’s Daily Reflections;

At the moment we are trying to put our lives in order. But this is not an end in itself.  (Alcoholics Anonymous, page 77)

How easily I can become misdirected in approaching the Eighth Step! I wish to be free, somehow transformed by my Sixth and Seventh Step work. Now, more than ever, I am vulnerable to my own self-interest and hidden agenda. I am careful to remember that self-satisfaction, which sometimes comes through the spoken forgiveness of those I have harmed, is not my true objective. I become willing to make amends, knowing that through this process I am mended and made fit to move forward, to know and desire God’s will for me.

“I am vulnerable to my own self-interest and hidden agenda…self-satisfaction…is not my true objective…”

What then is my true objective?

“…through this process I am mended and made fit to move forward, to know and desire God’s will for me.”

The tools this program trains me to use so that I may have a helpful life to other alcoholics is prayer, meditation, principals of the steps to live by, and sponsorship received and given in the fellowship.
