toolkitFrom p 25 of AA’s Big Book:

Almost none of us liked the sefl-searching, the leveling of our pride, the confession of shortcomings which the process requires for its successful consummation. But we saw that it really worked in others, and we had come to believe in the hopelessness and futility of life as we had been living it. When, therefore, we were approached by those in whom the problem had been solved, there was nothing left for us but to pick up the simple kit of spiritual tools laid at our feet. We have found much of heaven and we have been rocketed into a fourth dimension of exisitence of which we had not even dreamed.

The great fact is just this, and nothing less: that we have had a deep and effective spiritual experiences which have revolutionized our whole attitude toward life, toward our fellows and toward God’s universe.  The central fact of our lives today is the absolute certainty that our Creator has entered into our hearts and lives in a way which is indeed miraculous. He has commenced to accomplish those things for us which we cold never do by ourselves.

If you are sick and tired of a life decimated by addiction, seek out those in whom the problem has been solved. Find out what they have done and follow their example.

Pickup and use the spiritual tool kit laid at your feet and put the tools to use.  Become expert at their use and application.

You also may have deep and effective spiritual experiences which will revolutionize your attitudes.

Let Him, the Savior of us all, enter in your heart.  Allow Him to commence the miraculous work of doing for you the things you could never do for yourself.
