The Transformation Cycle

Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is – The Transformation Cycle. “I was soon to be catapulted into what I like to call the fourth dimension of existence" (Alcoholics Anonymous page 8). That was Bill W.’s experience. Bill W. said, “I was to know happiness, peace, and usefulness, in a way of life that is incredibly more wonderful as time passes.” Check on the workshop, Understanding A Transformation Cycle www.12stepworkshop.org.  I identify with Bill W.’s story when I went through a Spiritual transformation. Everything stopped working; I experienced the dark night of the senses. It was only then that I stopped fighting and surrendered all of me to our Father. I soon experienced a new awakening. Like Bill W., I felt catapulted into the fourth dimension of existence. Everything started working, only incredibly more wonderful. That transforming union is a restructuring of consciousness, not just an experience. The fourth dimension is beyond the three-dimensional world, and deeper than words. The transforming union was only a beginning, as great as it was. I increased my service work; carrying Alcoholics Anonymous’ message, and practiced my awakening in all my affairs, only then it became real. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
