“For me, A.A. is a synthesis of all the philosophy I’ve ever read, all of the positive, good philosophy, all of it based on love. I have seen that there is only one law, the law of love, and there are only two sins; the first is to interfere with the growth of another human being, and the second is to interfere with one’s own growth.”
1976 AAWS, Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 542
Thought to Consider. . .
When we love, we see in others what we wish to have in ourselves.
“A person is in psychic health when he is one with himself, when he
is his own friend. Perhaps you know people who are separated from
themselves by frantic desires, fearful imaginations, sour attitudes,
by regrets of the past and demands upon the future.”
Secrets for Higher Success, p. 71
. . . and third, having thus cleaned away the debris of the past, we consider how, with our newfound knowledge of ourselves, we may develop the best possible relations with every human being we know.
As I faced the Eighth Step, everything that was required for successful completion of the previous seven Steps came together: courage, honesty, sincerity, willingness and thoroughness, I could not muster the strength required for this task at the beginning, which is why this Step reads “Became willing. . . . “
I needed to develop the courage to begin, the honesty to see where I was wrong, a sincere desire to set things right, thoroughness in making a list, and willingness to take the risks required for true humility. With the help of my Higher Power in developing these virtues, I completed this Step and continued to move forward in my quest for spiritual growth.

I followed the steps that were suggested to me. 
“Everything is clearer when you’re in love.”
John Lennon

Every child has known God, 
Not the God of names, 
Not the God of don’ts, 
Not the God who ever does Anything weird, 
But the God who knows only 4 words. 
And keeps repeating them, saying: 
“Come Dance with Me , come dance.”

ACIM Workbook Lesson 225 Insights
“God is my Father, and His Son loves Him.”
There is no greater joy than that which comes with extending Love. When I am in the awareness of Love, my heart is filled with gratitude and overflows. As I extend Love to another, I experience It growing in me and I want to give more. That is the nature of Love. It cannot be contained. It must continuously extend to be Itself.
This is why I must Love my Source in order to know the Love He has given me. The more I am able to extend Love, the more my heart is filled with gratitude and joy and the more I want to extend Love. It is an eternal crescendo that can only grow, because that is Love’s nature.
If I am not experiencing this, it is because I have a false idea that in some way I am separate from Love. It is not true, but if I believe there is separation, I will experience it as true. That experience is one of loss, loneliness, limitation and lack of Love. It is the opposite of Love because Love cannot be separate or divided. When I am aware of Love, I experience Its unity. When I am believing in separation, Love is blocked from my awareness, though it remains ever present. All that is needed to remove the block is to forgive or let go of the thought of separation.
The thought of separation takes myriad forms in this world because it is the world that belief in separation made. These many diverse forms were made to disguise the one thought that underlies them all. There is in truth only one problem — belief in separation. While we believe that separation takes many forms, we need to let go of those many forms until we recognize they are all the same.
The Holy Spirit was given us to teach us to recognize these false images for what they are so we can let them go. Our only job is to take each false image that blocks us from the awareness of Love to the Holy Spirit. He will shine His loving Light on it and as we share the clarity of His vision, it disappears. We return to the awareness of Love where, once again, we join in the crescendo of ever expanding giving and receiving of Love.
Today I let myself be carried. The Spirit of Love is my Identity and I would open to It now. Now I let my mind be washed of all the false ideas that stem from the idea of being separated from God. God is my Source and I would not be separate from Love.
Today I would follow, I would not lead. I will let myself be carried by the powerful Source of Love that is my true Identity. Who do I think I am? I let that question be answered by the only One Who has the real Answer. There is only one Love and that Love is all inclusive. I am not alone. I am not separate. Nothing exists but God. I am willing to practice seeing this and feeling this and being this today.
