AND MY SPIRITUAL JOURNEY NOW…

On the road to Mintabe to mine opals in South Australia.

On the road to Mintabe to mine opals in South Australia.

After all my travels and experiences with spiritual traditions, I have spent the last thirty years studying and practicing the principles of Alcoholics Anonymous. AA’s great power lies not in studying, but in practicing its principles on a daily basis in my life. This practice is greater than any other form of spirituality that I have experienced in ALL my travels and SEEKING. Greater for me, that is. It may not be so for others. (And certainly not, if one does not happen to be an alcoholic.) I am grateful that, as an alcoholic, I can experience the extraordinary changes that occur if one commits honestly to the healing of the program.

The God of my understanding is an amalgam of all that I have learned in my spiritual travels. The entity has many names in my mind/heart: “All That Is,” “Divine Light /Love,” “Infinite truth,” “Great Mystery,” “Creator,” “Great Spirit,” or simply, “You, Who Love Me.”

This creator I trust implicitly. I have cancer. Doctors give me six months. I have no fear, for death to me means the start of a new life and more grand adventures in the spiritual world.

I’m looking forward to it!

Sandy (Apr. ‘15) adds, “An important key to my growth has been to remain honest, open and willing: Honest, to admit my faults and those of my culture, Open, to look at new ideas and give them a try, and Willing, to continue my spiritual quest and maintain my loving connection to my divine source. “
