I CANNOT CHANGE THE WIND
is easy to let up on the spiritual program of action and
rest on our laurels. We are headed for trouble if we do, for
alcohol is a subtle foe.
ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 85
My first sponsor told me there were two things to say about
prayer and meditation: first, I had to start and second, I had
to continue. When I came to A.A. my spiritual life was
bankrupt; if I considered God at all, He was to be called
upon only when my self-will was incapable of a task or
when overwhelming fears had eroded my ego.
Today I am grateful for a new life, one in which my
prayers are those of thanksgiving. My prayer time is more
for listening than for talking. I know today that if I cannot
change the wind, I can adjust my sail. I know the difference
between superstition and spirituality. I know there is a
graceful way of being right, and many ways to be wrong.--
