“One” Mistake

Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is emotional. One mistake I have made, too many times in too many forms, is to believe to experience the Presence of our Father has to have a feeling. During my prayers and meditation if I didn’t feel something good; warm feelings of love and gratitude I believed I had no contact with our Father. The same misunderstanding about sharing A.A. with others, if I didn’t feel good about my sharing, that I didn’t make a good difference, then I must not be doing “it right." Another mistake I made this morning; I ask Google what’s the difference between emotions and feelings. I came away with the realization that I need to leave the chicken and the egg question up to the experts. Ex – is a has-been and a pert – is a little drip of water under pressure. I do know the difference between the feelings of love and not love, for now that’s enough. Instinctual “love” could be a Thirteenth Step feeling. That’s best left to the Ex-Pert or one may become an EX. Intuitive Love comes directly by grace from our Father; one of Alcoholics Anonymous’ promises. While feelings of love are subjective let’s share all the love we can, the best way we can. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
