Once we have placed the key of willingness in the lock and have the door ever so slightly open, we find that we can always open it some more. TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 35 Let go, let truth, good conscience and wisdom shared guide us [God] ~ Buddha “Believe nothing, unless we feel it agrees with our own reason and our own common sense.” As we let go prejudice and old thinking, we make room for new outlooks and new living ~ Wayne Dyer “Everything you are against weakens you. Everything you are for empowers you.” -/- Empowered in sobriety we open the door to life in reality as life is today.. Sharing experience, strength and hope, offers an insight to sober living ~ Swami Sivananda “Always do good to others. Be selfless. Mentally remove everything and be free.” -/- It is not our concern what others do, simply what we do in this world today and always, now! We can multi task our lives away, skimming the surface and missing the deep.. ~ Swami Sivananda “Put your heart, mind, and soul into even your smallest acts. This is the secret of success.” Busy wears us out, cherish and savour the moment of now where we experience reality..

What Is the Real Reason Alcoholics Anonymous Condemns the Use of Personal Willpower?

Question by abnjim5: What is the real reason Alcoholics Anonymous condemns the use of Personal Willpower?
In consistance with my continuing inspection of AA doctrine, I am convinced that these cultists use the “willpower” issue to indoctrinate desperate drug addicts (alcohol is a drug) into their midst. Interestingly, AAers believe that the use of willpower can only lead them to another drink of alcohol, relapse, and a life of addiction. To further their recruit strategy of the unsuspecting “newcomer”, they tell him that he is in “denial” if they disagree with this concept.

Unfortunately, there is no shortage of AAers in this US society and the world. Afterall, we need people of this mentality to keep the Bush’s in office and the 30 million of them vote Republican! But wait, perhaps human willpower can be used for the good and stop the warring or is that not possible without a “higher power”.

These people are untraceable, and direct amends to them are not possible. The only amends I can make to those untraceable individuals, the only “changes for the better” I can offer, are indirect amends made to other people, whose paths briefly cross mine. Courtesy and kindness, regularly practiced, help me to live in emotional balance, at peace with myself.

Assets and liabilities: Our emotional and spiritual balance is based on reality and being able to cope. Assets can be courage, faith and confidence. Liabilities can be fear, brave facing and ego.

Perceived liabilities can be assets when there is a clear and present danger… Truth and reality are key always… Is spiritual ‘mysterious?’ In recovery we emerge from long periods of denial. Recovery is just for today, experiencing reality as it is with every feeling we have. Spiritual is living reality and the ability to live life on life’s terms..
