Kindness

🔥 Kindness is Unbiased Truth

Bill. W talked about swallowing large chunks of truth about ourselves in the step 4 inventory.

“In this book you read again and again that faith did for us what we could not do for ourselves. We hope you are convinced now that God can remove whatever self-will has blocked you off from Him. If you have already made a decision, and an inventory of your grosser handicaps, you have made a good beginning. That being so you have swallowed and digested some big chunks of truth about yourself”
-The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous

Patience, tolerance and good will towards others is the outcome of a fresh perspective that awaits those who face their unbaised truth.

Facing and accepting your unbaised truth is the kindest act of self-love.

But what what about kindness toward others?…

Telling others their unbaised truth is the ultimate act of kindness…

We learn this quickly in sponsorship…

Telling another person what they want to hear instead of what they need to hear is not kindness…

Dismissing others with untruths just to make them feel good shows contempt…

This is a “we” program of recovery…

Me, you and God…

We continue to swallow large chunks of truth about ourselves and we point out large chunks of truth to our fellows…

That is kindness in it’s purest form.

Paul
