This is so perfect! I need to be reminded of "practice this principle in all my affairs". I actually took the day off today b/c I wasn't feeling well. And I believe that I was supposed to read this today. I also love about what you shared on spirituality vs superstition. Absolutely fabulous!


It's a great thing to be of service and there are many ways to do that. I have a friend who is nearly broke but who won't take a "menial" job. He is sober 18 years with no sponsor and a whole lot of ego--sadly enough.


Thanks for this wonderful story. Today I felt a need to more fully understand the concept of "contrary action," so I googled the phrase and found many discussions on this subject, but yours was the one the clicked with me. I'm sure this is because you didn't teach and preach; you simply shared your experience, strength, and hope. I'm 10 years + 1 week sober today and grateful there is still so much to learn.
