Tuesday Night, the recovery topic will be “Living to Give.”
Over the next several weeks, we will explore the spirituality of the book
Powerless but not Helpless
A Recovery Interpretation of the Tao Te Ching
81 Essential Meditations That Can Change Your Life!

The universe is everlasting.

Why do heaven and earth endure?

They do not live for themselves.

That is the reason they are everlasting.

Therefore, the sober one thinks of their needs last, yet finds their needs met with no self-effort on their part.

Their effort is in helping others; in turn, they are perfectly fulfilled.

Tonight, we talk about Living to Give.

Character Defects – Recovered 1204

150 150 Mark S

Character defects like resentment, fear, anger, and self-pity will weigh us down in recovery. We have to let go of these shortcomings to stay happy, healthy, and focused on our program.

Sometimes we might experience these emotions in small doses and as ordinary reactions to life challenges. And that’s okay. But when we carry these emotions around with us for longer than necessary, or when they become a habit, we gamble with our sobriety.

Tonight, we talk about our Character Defects
