Spirituality is a cornerstone of AA and the 12 Steps. With my beliefs rooted in the teachings of Buddha Dharma it becomes inevitable that I would talk about Karma.
In the tradition of AA and the 12 Steps speakers will share what it was like, what happened and what it’s like now. This is what happened for me. Three little words changed the course of my life.
The ongoing step one story of my descent into the hell realms.
My AA Story continues into high school and I use the behavior I witnessed in another to relate to the behavior described in the animal realm for humans. I also relate to my own period within the realm and my behaviors.
Episode 50, a cause for celebration! Today though I continue to simply share myself in an open down to earth manner cause I want everyone to see the real me. I believe that the real me is more inspiration than a dressed up me that just shows you my success and asks you to look up to me. Don’t look up to me just look at me and see that if I can you can.
I Get Too!
Buddha teaches that one of the hell realms is the animal realm. In sharing my AA story I relate my early growing addiction to being lost in the behavior of that realm. Revisiting these past stories is a good meditation for me now cause I view them with gratitude and an appreciation for my precious life.
In Buddha Dharma I learned about rebirth and the six realms. In today’s episode I share my understanding of the six realms of rebirth and how I can relate my story to their meaning.
