    he future you shall know when it has come; before then, forget it.
    -- Aeschylus

    The Fellowship keeps us grounded in the current moment. We learn to live today. Our planning and scheming and dreaming about tomorrow becomes less time consuming. The idea of living one day at a time makes sense to us. Our Program teaches us that life is not about to happen, it is happening, and each moment is important.

    When we concentrated only on the future, we couldn't be happy with today. We thought if we could only get to tomorrow, things would be better. Tomorrow never comes, so we were always trapped in a hopeless situation. Now we live one day at a time, and grow moment by moment.

    Recovery is about today and living life in the present. Since I no longer have to manage the universe, I have only myself to worry about today. I can let my Higher Power take care of tomorrow.

    Wikipedia: “Warning label does not exist. Would you like to create warning label?”

    Gratitude is larger than life.

    One day, a friend called me on the phone. He was going through a difficult time and wondering if and when things would ever turn around and improve. I knew he was in a lot of pain, I didn't know then that he was considering suicide.

    "If you could give a person only one thing to help them," he said, "what would it be?"

    I thought carefully about his question, and then I replied, "It's not one thing, it's two: gratitude and letting go." Gratitude for everything, not just the things we consider good or a blessing. And letting go of everything we can't change.

    A few years have passed since that day my friend called me on the phone. His life has turned around. His financial problems have sorted themselves out. His career has shifted. The two very large problems he was facing at that time have both sorted themselves out.

    Someone once asked the artist Georgia O'Keeffe why her paintings magnified the size of small objects - the petals on a flower - making them appear larger than life, and reduced the size of large objects - like mountains - making them smaller than life. "Everyone sees the big things," she said. "But these smaller things are so beautiful and people might not notice them if I didn't emphasize them."

    That's the way it is with gratitude and letting go. It's easy to see the problems in our lives. They're like mountains. But sometimes we overlook the smaller things; we don't notice how truly beautiful they are.


    An old lady was considering buying a squirrel fur coat.

    "But will it be all right in the rain?" she asked anxiously.

    "Oh certainly, ma'am," said the manager smoothly.

    "After all, you've never seen a squirrel with an umbrella have you?"

    Let go of resentments

    Resentments are sneaky, tricky little things. They can convince us they're justified. They can dry up our hearts. They can sabotage our happiness. They can sabotage love.

    Most of us have been at the receiving end of an injustice at some time in our lives. Most of us know someone who's complained of an injustice we've done to him or her. Life can be a breeding ground for resentments, if we let it.

    "Yes, but this time I really was wronged," we complain.

    Maybe you were. But harboring resentment isn't the solution. If it were, our resentment list would resemble the Los Angeles telephone directory. Deal with your feelings. Learn whatever lesson is at hand. Then let the feelings go.

    Resentments are a coping behavior, a tool of someone settling for survival in life. They're a form or revenge. The problem is, no matter whom we're resenting, the anger is ultimately directed against ourselves.

    Take a moment. Search your heart. Have you tricked yourself into harboring resentment? If you have, take another moment and let that resentment go.

    God, grant me the serenity that acceptance brings.


    An Irishman, Englishman and Scotsman go into a pub and each order a pint of Guinness. Just as the bartender hands them over, three flies buzz down and one lands in each of the pints. The Englishman looks disgusted, pushes his pint away and demands another pint. The Scotsman picks out the fly, shrugs, and takes a long swallow. The Irishman reaches in to the glass, pinches the fly between his fingers and shakes him while yelling, "Spit it out, ya @#$%! Spit it out!"

    Simply see that you are at the center of the universe, and accept all things and beings as parts of your infinite body. When you perceive that an act done to another is done to yourself, you have understood the great truth.
    -- Lao Tz

    HAPPY EARTH DAY !

    Two hippies are sat having a smoke. One turns to the other and says "Turn the radio on, man." The other leans in close to the radio and says, "I think I love you baby".

    Dear Lord,

    Teach me to quiet my mind.

    Stop my thoughts from racing from one thing to another.

    Stop me from the obsessive thinking about the lives of others.

    Help me rest and quiet my mind.

    Help me let go of trying to control the lives of others.

    Free my mind to be at rest.

    This I pray.

    When love beckons to you, follow him, though his ways are hard and steep.
    --Kahlil Gibran

    There will be many opportunities to express love in the days ahead, and some may be cloaked in harsh wrappings. Perhaps an argument will wound and then be healed by the exchange of loving words and intimate gestures.

    Maybe a friend or lover will be called away for a while, and the painful loneliness will make us question our commitment to love. Yet, in loving unconditionally, we'll find peace.

    Love, though a soft word and a gentle image, doesn't always promise us soft, gentle moments. Sometimes love offers us a pained heart and empty arms. We know love comforts, but not always. Love heals, but in its own time. The desire to know love draws us together, always.



    He had no money so his donkey was his only transportation.
    When he reached the city he went to pee at the corner at the street, but while peeing the donkey ran away.
    The old villager spent all day looking for his beloved donkey, but as the night fell he decided to find a place to rest.
    As he had no money, he went to a hotel where he found an open room and laid under the bed to rest.
    Later on that night a couple came into the room and proceeded to make love on the bed.
    The man compliments the girl and says:
    "In your eyes I can see the whole world"
    On hearing this the villager jumps out from under the bed and says:
    "If you can see the whole world, can you see where my donkey is?"
