That’s What I Thought…

All that we are is the result of what we have thought.

- Buddha

On page 23 of the book Alcoholics Anonymous it states, “Therefore, the main problem of the alcoholic centers in his mind, rather than in his body.” ¬†Later on page 64 it states, ” When the spiritual malady is overcome, we straighten out mentally and physically.” Our faulty, self-centered thinking, the unmanageable emotions that drive our hurtful behaviors and the damning self-talk that keeps us in shame and despair are spiritual problems needing a spiritual solution. The program of Alcoholics Anonymous is a spiritual plan of action that will result in an awakened, growing spirit and a design for living that really works.¬†

    Essential point made in the book and a wonderfully simple insight from Buddha. Thanks for all you have done with this site to keep yourself sober!
