It is often the case that great scholars make 
the acquiring of knowledge a goal instead of a means to a goal.
 
If you thoroughly learned all the lessons in AA
 by heart and made no use of it, you would find it but a waste of time and effort.

you must pass it on or it will be not only valueless 
to humanity but, in all probability, of no material help to you.

A New Year: 12 months, 52 weeks, 365 days, 8,760 hours, 525,600 minutes — a time to consider directions, goals, and actions.

Lesson 365
This holy instant would I give to You. 
Be You in charge. For I would follow You, 
Certain that Your direction gives me peace.
 
And if I need a word to help me, He will give it to me. If I need a thought, that will He also give. And if I need but stillness and a tranquil, open mind, these are the gifts I will receive of Him. He is in charge by
