Not A Theory

🔥Not A Theory

“The spiritual life is not a theory. We have to live it” – The Big Book P83.

Are you a theorist or a Practitioner of this program?

A theorist will talk with words…

A Practitioner will talk through action…

A theorist will talk through knowledge…

A Practitioner will listen through wisdom…

The cofounders of AA found through painful experience that it was impossible for them to think and talk their way into a new way of thinking…

The alcoholic’s only chance at life was to action his way into a new way of living…

The solution to their problem HAD to be LIVED…

Not talked about…

Not thought about…

Lived!.

Chapter 6 in The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous is titled INTO ACTION…

This chapter includes the actionable steps of steps 5 through step 9…

If worked diligently they will create an experiential happening in the alcoholic through action…

This happening is called an awakening…

A spiritual experience…

An experience that empowers the alcoholic to pick his bed and walk and carry the message of his awakening to other Alcoholics who still suffer…

The action of carrying this message to others who suffer as we once did, will garuntee immunity from drinking…

Being a Practitioner of step 12 garuntees immunity…

Being a theorist garuntees failure…

Which one are you?

Our behavior/actions must speak louder than our words.
