So... the purpose of this blog was to offer everything I know about the heart, mind and soul of an addict, about alcoholism and addiction 101, about recovery, action and growth, about flimsy remedies vs spiritual solutions, and most importantly, about the original Twelve Step process and the universal spiritual/moral principles contained within.
Given the rapidly growing and ever-deepening spiritual void in this country, I believe it is of vital importance to cultivate and nourish a moral compass, especially given the frightening degree of filth, fraud and corruption that has infected the highest levels of government and central banking, not to mention popular culture and religion. We must fix ourselves thoroughly and with haste if we are to break apart the current structures of control, marginalization, and spiritual destitution.
All that said, I will be moving on to other projects at this point. The truth is I don't have much more to say on the subject, and the point of this blog was never to provide a forum for my own self-indulgence and self-importance, neither of which I believe in anymore. Getting rid of self should be the #1 priority of us addicts and alcoholics. It is Self that will bring us down, as Self is what pushes us away from God.
I will, however, remain to pray with each and every one of you who has found any usefulness or solace whatsoever in this forum. I recommend that new readers go back and read older entries, as they cover a wide swath of relevant issues. I will remain to pray for all of you who have reached out and shared so graciously and honestly. I will always be here and I will always have you in my heart.
Years from now, I will still be praying all day long, writing inventory, making amends, and trying to love and serve my family, friends, and those who seek help. The single most important thing in my life is to stay close to God, to become a better man, and to let go of self-will. I know that if we do everything in our power to be with God, if we shatter any and all walls between us and Him, if we seek deeper honesty and love, then we will live meaningful lives and we will change the world. The world most certainly needs us... and now more than ever.
Trust in God, Do the Right Thing, Follow Your Heart...
