Of Practical Use on a Daily Basis

Here is the reading for October, beginning our month of study in the 10th Step and Tradition.

Up to this point we’ve prepared ourselves for a new life adventure: living one day at a time. Now, whether the weather in which we live grows fair or foul, we put our newest principle to practical use on that singular basis. The critical test will be: Can we stay sober, live in a state of emotional balance, and find good purpose in our lives under all conditions we come across?

In order to do so, we find a continuous look at both our assets and
liabilities, coupled with our strong desires to learn and grow, are attitudes we’ll need for success.

A great number of us have learned the hard way: this isn’t a theory
at all. Self-survey and self-criticism have been practiced unsparingly by more experienced people than us at times and places gone by, and such wise people have known throughout the ages that in order to make something of one’s life, a regular pattern of self-searching and evaluation needs to be put into practical use in considering every day’s moments. To be successful at this, we will need to admit and accept what we find out about ourselves from this effort. Then, with our greatest patience and persistence we continue to practice and correct what we’ve found is wrong.

  1. I’d be inclined to be of the same mind with you on this. Which is not something I usually do! I love reading a post that will make people think. Also, thanks for allowing me to speak my mind!
