It’s imperative that you know my tone
before reading my posts.
I’m not angry.
I’m passionate 🙂
I’m passionate about truth.
I’m passionate about believe.
I’m passionate about ignoring lies.
I’m passionate about showing others
what God showed me.
That being said, who AAre you? If someone asked you, “Who are you?”, what would you say? Oh! Here are the rules before you answer:
You can’t say your name.
You can’t list your occupation(s).
You can’t use an acronym.
You can’t personalize your religion.
Here’s the last rule – the most important rule.
Your answer has to describe your uniqueness.
Don’t feel bad if you don’t have an answer. Most people I ask, don’t have an answer.
So, here’s my next question. If you don’t know who you are, how will you ever know what to do “when you grow up”?
If you knew (without a doubt) who you were, you would know what to do. When you know what to do, purpose comes flooding into your life. Then, you would find yourself in passionate protect mode saying something like, “I’m going to do everything I can to guard my who now that I know.”
Those who don’t know who they are usually make slow-death decisions. A person who knows and deeply believes in who they are, will not continue to do anything to shorten or interrupt their purpose. If they chose to stop drinking alcohol but continued to smoke cigarettes, this would make zero sense. Regarding this person, the last thing anyone in their right mind would do is attach a false WHO to that person. Right?
Well, it looks like I’m wrong. Did you know (according to Wikipedia) the founder of AA was a heavy smoker? And that he was dependent on an oxygen tank and died from emphysema? Here’s the part that baffles me the most; in 1999 Time listed him as “Bill W.: The Healer” in the Time 100: The Most Important People of the Century.
THE HEALER? They called him the healer. His who WAS NOT “healer” for two reasons. First, healers don’t die from a poverty mindset. Second, according to the AA mantra, nobody in AA is ever healed; they are always on the road to healing (recovery).
In short, don’t chase recovery. Don’t chase anything. Choose believe. Discover your WHO. And please, whatever you do, don’t identify with a lie. You are NOT what you DID. Never again say, “Hi. My name is ________ and I’m an _________ic!” Your WHO is waiting to be discovered.
You don’t NEED a group. Groups don’t save lives. All you need to do is the very thing that Jesus said over and over again. I challenge you to follow the teachings of Jesus as opposed to the plans and programs of man.

about pennies and nickels
can’t be blamed for doubting the man
who talks about his bag of quarters!”
