Continuous 12-Step Meetings

To all recovering addicts and Course in Miracles teachers, thanks for listening. You may well be, at this moment, further along in your homeward journey than the “scenario of existence” you have been conjuring as “your life” in this dark continuum of fearful existence would indicate. Perhaps it’s time at last to decide “enough is enough.”

Let’s begin at the beginning and see if we can light up a cavern or two together: We hope you will join in extending the power we discovered in turning our will and our life over to the care of God. We have been restored to sanity. We have discovered a new way of thinking that has brought us to a new way of living.

Come and listen to dramatic stories of Miraculous Recovery from despondency beyond hope. We have learned to utilize rather than analyze. We have been given a whole new meaning and purpose for life on earth and are determined to give it away in order to keep it...

There is a solution...

Almost none of us liked the self-searching, the leveling of pride, the confession of shortcomings which the process requires for its successful consummation. But we saw that it really worked in others, and we had come to believe in the hopelessness and futility of life as we had been living it. When, therefore, we were approached by those in whom the problem had been solved, there was nothing left to do but to pick up the simple kit of spiritual tools laid at our feet. We have found much heaven and we have been rocketed into a fourth dimension of existence of which we had not even dreamed.

The great fact is just this, and nothing less: That we have had deep and effective spiritual experiences which have revolutionized our whole attitude toward life, toward our fellows and toward God's universe. The central fact of our lives today is the absolute certainty that our Creator has entered into our hearts and lives in a way which is indeed miraculous. He has commenced to accomplish those things for us which we could never do by ourselves.

Read it again!

Simply do this: Be still, and lay aside all thoughts of what you are and what God is; all concepts you have learned about the world; all images you hold about yourself… Empty your mind of everything it thinks is either true or false, or good or bad, of every thought it judges worthy, and all the ideas of which it is ashamed…

Hold onto nothing. Do not bring with you one thought the past has taught, nor one belief you ever learned before from anything. Forget this world, forget this course, and come with wholly empty hands unto your God…

Look to this day, for it is life,
the very life of life,
in its brief course lie all the realities
and verities of existence,
the bliss of growth,
the splendor of action,
the glory of power.
For yesterday is but a dream,
and tomorrow is only a vision,
But today, well lived,
makes every yesterday
a dream of happiness
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore, to this day.
