Endigar 558 ~ Without Reservation

From the Daily Reflections of September 27;

When brimming with gratitude, one’s heartbeat must surely result in outgoing love, . . .  (As Bill Sees It, page 37)

While practicing service to others, if my successes give rise to grandiosity, I must reflect on what brought me to this point. What has been given joyfully, with love, must be passed on without reservation and without expectation. For as I grow, I find that no matter how much I give with love, I receive much more in spirit.

After a world of hurt I experienced in 2003 that had nothing to do with active alcoholism, I made a profound commitment not to love or be directed by the need for love again.  By 2005 I had utterly failed to protect myself from it.  I was all on board with the Nazareth assertion that Love hurts.  Over time I have gained a perspective change gained through AA and my intimate others that refused to surrender me to my social suicide.  Love is about connection and empowerment.  It grows in effectiveness as it is shared.  I desire the potentially infinite empowerment of being able to share without reservation.
