Instincts
We have learned that the satisfaction of instincts cannot be the sole end and aim of our lives. 
If we place instincts first, we have got the cart before the horse; we shall be pulled backward into disillusionment.
But when we are willing to place spiritual growth first—then and only then do we have a real chance.

- 12 Steps & 12 Traditions, p. 114

Thought to Ponder
Growing old is inevitable, growing up is optional, growing spiritually is up to me.

AA-related 'Alconym'
K I S S  =  Keeping It Simple, Spiritually.

Thanks to all of you for sharing so generously of your experience, strength and hope in carrying the AA message.
In grateful service,
