It has been a while since I have put up a daily reflection. But today’s is awesome. I believe it is the key to our spiritual condition. I know it is what makes the difference in our lives compared to those outside of our fellowship!

The immediate admission of wrong thoughts or actions is a tough task for most human beings, but for recovering alcoholics like me it is difficult because of my propensity toward ego, fear and pride. The freedom the A.A. program offers me becomes more abundant when, through unremitting inventories of myself, I admit, acknowledge and accept responsibility for my wrong-doing.

My willingness to admit when the fault is mine facilitates the progression of my growth and helps me to become more understanding and helpful to others.
