THE MIRACLE OF THE
Continuous 12-Step Meetings
To all recovering addicts and Course in Miracles teachers, thanks for listening. You may well be, at this moment, further along in your homeward journey than the “scenario of existence” you have been conjuring as “your life” in this dark continuum of fearful existence would indicate. Perhaps it’s time at last to decide “enough is enough.”
Let’s begin at the beginning and see if we can light up a cavern or two together: We hope you will join in extending the power we discovered in turning our will and our life over to the care of God. We have been restored to sanity. We have discovered a new way of thinking that has brought us to a new way of living.
Come and listen to dramatic stories of Miraculous Recovery from despondency beyond hope. We have learned to utilize rather than analyze. We have been given a whole new meaning and purpose for life on earth and are determined to give it away in order to keep it...
There is a solution...
Almost none of us liked the self-searching, the leveling of 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 to do but to pick up the simple kit of spiritual tools laid at our feet. We have found much heaven and we have been rocketed into a fourth dimension of existence of which we had not even dreamed.
The great fact is just this, and nothing less: That we have had 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 could never do by ourselves.
