Endigar 617 ~ A Universal Search

From the Daily Reflections of November 24;

Be quick to see where religious people are right. Make use of what they offer.   (Alcoholics Anonymous, page 87)

I do not claim to have all the answers in spiritual matters, any more than I claim to have all the answers about alcoholism. There are others who are also engaged in a spiritual search. If I keep an open mind about what others have to say, I have much to gain. My sobriety is greatly enriched, and my practice of the Eleventh Step more fruitful, when I use both the literature and practices of my Judeo-Christian tradition, and the resources of other religions. Thus, I receive support from many sources in staying away from the first drink.





It does seem to make sense to expand the tools I have to use in my 11th step pursuit.  Whatever works, I will use as long as it is not at the expense of another human being.  No midnight pacts that end in human sacrifice or religious participation that requires me to control or humiliate others to feel accepted.  The tools must be from a source that reinforces the saving reality of a loving Gomu (God of my understanding).
