To celebrate the 100th episode, I invited my wife to join me.This podcast was her idea. She talks about the 12 Steps, ACA, and our relationship with one another and with God. We also talk about communication, and our marriage in general.
In this episode I answer a question I received in an e-mail regarding how to deal with a sponsee who wants to do things differently from how they are in the Big Book. Ironically, if you're doing things "out of the book" you do not force the book upon another soul.
In this episode I talk more about living the principles at home, where it counts the most, in my view. I talk about some of the lessons I've learned that have led me to today. - Communicating clearly about where I'm at
In this episode I describe some very simple tools I use to practice getting out of self. (Worth noting that, for myself, if I'm not willing to practice these things I do an inventory; if I'm unwilling to do that - back to Step Three.)I also talk about 9/11.And Zoom etiquette.
In this episode I talk about being either a positive or a negative influence on the people around me.- It take literally no effort to be a negative influence.- Being a positive influence takes effort.Does being a positive or a negative influence on others matter to you?
In this episode I talk about Step Three, again, using a few different analogies. Also I discuss how, in early recovery, I was aware of the fact that there were parts of my life I still wanted to control.
Today, my guest is Ruchi - another person who was struggling in A.A. for years, did the steps quickly right out of the Big Book, and has had a powerful spiritual awakening. Wait until you hear this......
In this episode I interview Maureen, who has incredible things to share about her experience of going quickly through the "clear cut directions" that are in the Big Book, and the spiritual awakening that ensued.
