GIVING IT AWAY
Though they knew they must help other alcoholics if they would remain sober, that motive became secondary. It was transcended by the happiness they found in giving themselves to others.
ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 159
Those words, for me, refer to a transference of power, through which God, as I understand Him, enters my life. Through prayer and meditation, I open channels, then I establish and improve my conscious contact with God. Through action I then receive the power I need to maintain my sobriety each day. By maintaining my spiritual condition, by giving away what has been so freely given to me, I am granted a daily reprieve.

One area of my life I have remained consistent with is my morning prayer and meditation. Now that the internet and computers have become so useful most of my meditations and prayers are electronic. I awaken every day to them. They continue to help me stay focused on what really matters. What is it that really matters? My spiritual condition! Life is goooooood!
Go, Go, Go…
