“When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed-door, that we do not see the one which has opened for us.” Alexander Graham Bell (allegedly)
“ALL things work together for the good to those who Love God. For those who are called according to His will.” Romans 8:28
When one door closes another one opens” Once we have done our Third Step our lives are in God’s care but we don’t always remember that. After living a life of addiction littered with betrayal and lies suddenly we are challenged to trust that God has our needs covered.
If Nothing Changes- Nothing Changes. Heart Level Recovery Is Always God Grounded.
Recovery From Addiction.
My Heart is warmed when I remember my first year of recovery. I was so relieved to be free of the drink and drugs that I beamed with anticipation and gratitude. I was scared to death at the same time! I had no idea what kind of life I was in for but I did have hopes, dreams and the vision. I knew as long as I was doing God’s will by being clean and sober that He was at the helm and life would be good…and by God it was!
Give your worries & fear to your Higher Power who can handle it. Do not allow fear/shame programming to cause hidden and repressed fear. Fear should be acknowledged & faced head on so it doesn’t gain power over out actions. Fear is part of the human condition (for now anyway) & for good reasons. Fear run riot on the other hand, when acted upon in negative ways become the problem.
This is a file to be opened or downloaded. The book is free PDF format text. I wrote it at the height of my own recovery. I have been sober since 2006 and the file shows many of my best lessons in meditation reading form.
False Pride is One of my Dominate Temptations of that I confess.
If Staying Sober is what you need to learn today…do not read this article. I have many many other articles on how to stay sober. I have been sober since 2006. That’s 14 years or so. Ten of which I have taken some kind of doctor prescribed non narcotic drug. Be clear I don’t take opiates, that would cause me dysfunctional addiction and horrible consequences.
The Cult Rules of Alcoholics Anonymous Status Quo for those Reprogrammed but not Healed meaning Not recovered at heart level.
Recovered– Self worth is restored, self love is apparent. Our self worth comes from God therefore if someone puts down AA it doesn’t trigger us to rage.
Reprogrammed– No recovery or healing has taken place at heart level therefore we only have reprogramming of the mind into the AA mindset program. Therefore if someone contradicts one of the AA mantras or the disease concept we attack them because it is an attack on our person we think.
Become who you really were meant to be or become an AA parrot.
If you follow these cult rules your a parrot.
All members must adhere to these rules or be considered non compliant.
Amendment #1 AA traditional mantras always take priority over Truth.
Amendment #2 If they put down or even show ideals contrary to AA status quos they put us down so we ATTACK.
Amendment #3 “Live and Let Live” is our Lie.
1. Members must download the directives of how to become an AA robot instead of becoming a clean & sober version of who we really are. You must be a copycat to fit in.
2. Quote mantras instead of using your own words.
3. make others look stupid so whenever possible so you don’t feel so stupid
4. never ever do self examination stay in blame.
5. blame others for your feelings
6. NEVER look at wrongs suffered “victimhood” is illegal in AA no matter what abuse is in your past. Continue reading “Cult Rules of Alcoholics Anonymous Especially In Facebook Recovery Groups”
In this day and age for those saved souls who know Jesus the most important prayer we can say may be “Father, let me NOT be deceived”.
I want to tell you a story of heartfelt truth. It’s not a made up story but I may use some allegories. Picture a little girl. Little Elior is her name. Little Elior has parents who love her but they know little about emotional nurturing. They don’t know how confidence and self worth are built because, well they have little of their own…they punish by guilting and shaming. They punish by violence. Even the father “spanks” little Elior at a very young innocent age. Naturally little Elior believes if her father hits her she deserves to be hit. And the messages she repeatedly got from school, & parents were that she, not her actions were bad and wrong.

US 6506148 B2 Google that. Why do they say in AA “don’t ask why”. Oh its cause you obsess over things right? Why the phrase “morbid reflection”? If you do look at your past thoroughly you might find Satan, roaming to and fro seeking whom he may destroy. And YOU may have a sacred call on your life that makes you an arch enemy of evil. He knows his time is short. LOOK AT WHAT THE PRETTY PEOPLE DID AND PARROT THAT…..
THIS IS NOT A RECOVERY ARTICLE YOU MAY WANT TO SKIP IT. It is “the problem & causes of addiction” not the solutions.
Self Loathing is by design
What this article really is, is my great awakening catalogued for you to see in plain sight. This is 4 years of research and revelation I give you. It’s very scary and very true. Pray for faith so you can bear it.
NEWS FLASH! Satan IS the ruler of this world and YOU were/are an addict by design. The more abuse you endured in the formative and teen years the more likely your calling from God IS. Were you targeted? Did the voices in your head tell you “your a piece of shit”? The dark side fears you because God will give you POWER & MIGHT if you seek Him.
You are not ultimately responsible for who you were as an addict, or who you have become. But you ARE responsible for learning, & changing.
