Endigar 523 ~ A Riddle that Works

From Today’s Daily Reflections;

It may be possible to find explanations of spiritual experiences such as ours, but I have often tried to explain my own and have succeeded only in giving the story of it.  I know the feeling it gave me and the results it has brought, but I realize I may never fully understand its deeper why and how.   (As Bill Sees It, page 313)

I had a profound spiritual experience during an open A.A. meeting, which led me to blurt out, “I’m an alcoholic!” I have not had a drink since that day. I can tell you the words I heard just prior to my admission, and how those words affected me, but as to why it happened, I do not know. I believe a power greater than myself chose me to recover, yet I do not know why. I try not to worry or wonder about what I do not yet know; instead, I trust that if I continue to work the Steps, practice the A.A. principles in my life, and share my story, I will be guided lovingly toward a deep and mature spirituality in which more will be revealed to me. For the time being, it is a gift for me to trust God, work the Steps and help others.




I have had five spiritual ecstasies and nine profound spiritual experiences that I can remember at this writing.  One of those experiences related to AA and I am sure there are probably more God moments I could verify if I had an eidetic memory.  None of them were drug induced that I am aware of.  There is the possibility that alcohol continued to have physiological impacts even after I had stopped drinking.  I believe these gifts belong to a group like a vaccination, with the individual being the hypodermic needle.  If you have a burning bush experience, then I believe you have a responsibility to transfer it out of yourself and into the collective consciousness.  In other words, it comes with a responsibility.  Bill Wilson’s spiritual experience belonged to AA and not to Bill.  He benefited in his instant deliverance from alcoholic enslavement, but that was so that the gift deposited within him would one day manifest to us.
