Faith in AA began when I was at my bottom and didn’t have any other choice but to ask for help and trust they could. In time I came to see that what I seemed to fear about the 12 steps was only my misinterpretation. I was afraid, at the time, that I would need to set my beliefs aside and give my self up to some kind of religion. I learned right in the beginning that I could keep all my beliefs and have faith and learn to build upon both.
In today’s show I take a daily meditation from my life and explain how I break it down so I can gain wisdom from it. It is a meditation that upon first glance seems to have a strong religious overtone because of the way it is worded. I show how I first remain open-minded and not brush it aside. Then I take the reading apart sentence by sentence to reveal how I interpret it to my beliefs and also show how the religious tone only exists at first glance. Staying open and having a closer look is all it takes.
Today I share recent experience I had staying open-minded and it’s allowed me to continue growing into the better person I wish to become. This is my karma playing out. My actions lead to a good future.
