Take My Life


Do you know this quote?

Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood God”

In my puny, inadequate, hypocritical way, I have joined with those who made that decision.  You don’t need to be an alcoholic or a drug addict to appreciate the wisdom of the 12 steps. The steps provide a good model for facing any problem that makes one’s life unmanageable. Surrender and transformation: these ofent come in handy. 


The great challenge of surrender

Surrender is a battlefield. Don’t let anybody tell you different. 

 I take the third step every day. I need to take the third step every day. Every day. Every day. 

 ”Take my will and make it Thine, It shall be no longer mine.”


This old hymn has been on my mind today. 


Meher Baba said “Everything in the Gita is expressed in these few lines by a Western Mystic.”

Real happiness lies in making others happy


When I admitted that my life was unmanageable, I turned my will and my life over to God’s care.

I have been a follower of Meher Baba for many years, but when it came right down to it, I thought I could do a better job caring for myself than God could.


This was an error of judgment.


I dedicate this blog, and anything else he may want, to Meher Baba.

Here are some words of Meher Baba’s that I like:
