Join Our Phone Conferences
What a call we had today on Duvid Chaim's 12-Step phone conference!
So many Powerful shares - generated by our working the Exercise "over the past 23 hours” - which was Find G-d inside yourself!
We heard men share their stories of how G-d has given them:
- Courage and
- Strength and
- The willingness to make Big Decisions, plus
- Answers that arrived as thoughts in their head after they quieted their anxiety and panic long enough to hear The Still Small Voice
We also heard from those of us who are now brave enough to disclose their secondary addiction known as Co-Dependency. And how - by finding G-d inside themselves, they were able to break out of their comfort zone that is really nothing more than the prison of victimization and self pity!
This was made possible, we concluded - NOT by tapping into our own personal self reliance and intelligence. But all this was made possible to tapping into the G-d resource and the G-d reliance that comes by turning in all things over to the Father of Light :
The ALMIGHTY himself!!
Kel Elyon - אל עליון - Our Higher Power!
You are invited to spend some time with the Big Book and review "the how and the why of it" - the “simple concept that is the Keystone to the triumphant arch we pass through to Freedom" - by reading the BB pages 60 thru 62.
In addition, I would like to share with you a very powerful prayer that Miriam has shared with me from the CODA Book (with my own slight edits to make it more like a Tefillah). I have printed this prayer and taped it inside my Siddur. I suggest you do the same.
HaKodosh Boruch Hu, I am having trouble with personal relationships.
I can’t control my emotional nature. I am prey to misery and self-pity. I am struggling to make a living and treat my wife like a queen.
I feel useless. I am full of fear. I am unhappy. I can’t seem to be of real help to others. I know in my heart that only You can restore me to sanity if I am just willing to stop doubting Your Power. I humbly ask that You help me to understand that it is more powerful to believe than not to believe. And that You are either everything or nothing. Ayn Od Milvado!
