Don't Care What You Believe

     I don't care what you believe. It really doesn't matter... compared to what you do. We can believe in the most noble, lofty principles in the world and still be useless sacks. We can believe in every good thing known to man and not evolve spiritually in the slightest. We can have our doctrines of choice memorized front to back and never change at all. We can be religious show-offs who can throw passages around like no other and still be deranged monsters. What matters is what we do, not what we believe.

     I also don't care how you feel. I don't care if you're sad, angry, depressed, anxious, or feel like a victim. It doesn't matter because your feelings have nothing to do with getting better. Discussing your feelings or digging into them with a friend, social worker or psychotherapist is a waste of time. Instead, we addicts and alcoholics need to get over ourselves, do some work, and start changing. We need to stop thinking and just do the right thing. 

     It is action, not feelings or beliefs, that will give us freedom.

God, please give me the willingness and the power to grow along spiritual lines...
