Life can be a boring ritual, daily marching through dull tasks and dark spirits. But happiness will come again. Life is not a constant struggle or hunt for happiness. Happiness is a by-product of living right. I ask God to help me live right, and not search for pleasure, in my attempts to be happy.... Sign in to see full entry.

Grant me the wisdom to know the difference.................................

I'm no mathematician, and I may not know what a whole lot of nines are.....

Natural and spiritual laws drive our serenity.........................

Today's lesson from the twelve step literature focuses on the immutability of natural laws. It makes them dependable, if at times crushingly stern. Spiritual laws, by analogy, are there for us to witness and partake in. Whether or not you believe in a spiritual or religious life, these laws bear on... Sign in to see full entry.

The "Serenity Moment" is back! Y'all come...

It is true that most of us have already passed through the dark stage of our lives. The times when we were afraid and remorseful.

Men & Women who are ... Incapable of being Honest with Themselves

Here are the opening lines to Chapter five of the AA big book. We read this at the start of each meeting. Rarely have we seen a person fail who has thoroughly followed our path.

If You Think You Might Be Modeling Serenity, Ask Yourself This Question:

Am I letting personal resentments interfere with what I know to be proper conduct? When I have no clear guidance from God do I go forward on the path of quiet duty? --Hazelden Sign in to see full entry.
