“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 dont 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 ones life unmanageable. Surrender and transformation: these ofent come in handy.
The great challenge of surrender
Surrender is a battlefield. Dont 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.”
