DAILY REFLECTIONS for April 21st
"I don't think we can do anything very well in this world unless we practice it. And I don't believe we do A.A. too well unless we practice it. … We should practice … acquiring the spirit of service. We should attempt to acquire some faith, which isn't easily done, especially for the person who has always been very materialistic, following the standards of society today. But I think faith can be acquired; it can be acquired slowly; it has to be cultivated. That was not easy for me, and I assume that it is difficult for everyone else. …"
Dr. Bob and the Good Oldtimers, Pages 307-308
Fear is often the force that prevents me from acquiring and cultivating the power of faith. Fear blocks my appreciation of beauty, tolerance, forgiveness, service and serenity.
