Endigar 692 ~ A Rallying Point

From the Daily Reflections of February 6;

Therefore, Step Two is the rallying point for all of us. Whether agnostic, atheist, or former believer, we can stand together on this Step.  (Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, page 33).

I feel that A.A. is a God-inspired program and that God is at every A.A. meeting. I see, believe, and have come to know that A.A. works, because I have stayed sober today. I am turning my life over to A.A. and to God by going to an A.A. meeting. If God is in my heart and everyone else’s, then I am a small part of a whole and I am not unique. If God is in my heart and He speaks to me through other people, then I must be a channel of God to other people. I should seek to do His will by living spiritual principles and my reward will be sanity and emotional sobriety.

How drab it is to hear something like, “I am not unique.” I know that I need to connect and I need to find the ways that I am similar to those in the Fellowship rather than the ways that I am different. It is a difficult process when you have always felt odd and at odds with those around you, no matter what group you are in. I struggle with connecting and staying connected. And that problem does not seem to be unique to me as an alcoholic. Thus, maybe it is my problem and my solution that I share in common. That is where I work to connect in AA.
