What’s Inside MUST Come Out

What comes out when you squeeze an Orange? Orange juice of course, and why’s that? Because that’s what’s inside the Orange.

When we act out in anger and rage and frustration during the course of the day – the reason we behave that way is because that’s what’s inside us.

If we meet a person who is at peace and calm accepting things as they are regardless of what happens it’s because that’s what’s inside them.

So the question becomes how do we get good stuff inside? The answer is we put it there.

And how do we put it there? We read spiritual material, pray, meditate, go to meetings, meet with our sponsor or sponsees, and put good data in our minds so that when something happens we respond in a positive way.

We do not listen to negative things, be around overly negative people, read or watch violence, good data in, good data out. bad data in, bad data out.

HOPE

HOPE is the laughter where once there was none, reposes the gloom of the glowering glum…

HOPE is the newcomer succumbed to submission, who’s journey is launched with an honest admission…

HOPE is the promises we read in our book, good will for the painstaking measures we took…

HOPE is the rooms where we humbly share, hands held as one as we close with a prayer…

HOPE is the big book covered in blue, it’s primary purpose still tried and true…

HOPE is a power far greater than me, wiser and stronger than I’ll ever be…

HOPE is the new life we’ve all come to find, 12 simple steps, one day at a time.
