Our Dilemma
Lack of power, that was our dilemma. we had to find a power by
which we could live, and it had to be a Power greater than ourselves.
Obviously. But where and how were we to find this Power? Well,
that‘s exactly what this book is about. Its main object is to enable you
to find a Power greater than yourself which will solve your problem.
- Alcoholics Anonymous, (We Agnostics) p. 45 

Thought to Ponder
The task ahead of us is never as great as the Power behind us.

Hi All. Darrell, alcoholic. In the acceptance chapter in the stories, it talks about for me, being powerless. I have absolutely no control over what happens in this world. But through action and spiritual maintenance and a tool box I have acquired, I know where all power lies. That is with my HP, God as I choose to call Him. It brings total serenity when I adhere to His will.  Not mine but Thine be done. My expectations are lowered and my world and the people in it live on a more serene basis. I have to leave the results up to Him. His results and answers are so much more than any solutions that I in my human mind, could fathom. Thanks for letting me share.
