what is point of view if there is no point to it...?

1. Why make a point to have a view if your not going to use the view to make a point?

2. The best view is neither from the inside nor from the outside.

3. At the prefect point of decisions things come and go like water in a land of dry thieves.

4. Given a matter/anti-matter riffle

“Pure” motives

“We examine our actions, reactions, and motives. We often find that we’ve been doing better than we’ve been feeling.”

Basic Text, p. 42

––––= ––––

Imagine a daily meditation book with this kind of message: “When you wake up in the morning, before you rise from your bed, take a moment for reflection. Lie back, gather your thoughts, and consider your plans for the day. One by one, review the motives behind those plans. If your motives are not entirely pure, roll over and go back to sleep.” Nonsense, isn’t it?

No matter how long we’ve been clean, almost all of us have mixed motives behind almost everything we do. However, that’s no reason to put our lives on hold. We don’t have to wait for our motives to become perfectly pure before we can start living our recovery.

As the program works its way into our lives, we begin acting less frequently on our more questionable motives. We regularly examine ourselves, and we talk with our sponsor about what we find. We pray for knowledge of our Higher Power’s will for us, and we seek the power to act on the knowledge we’re given. The result? We don’t get perfect, but we do get better.

We’ve begun working a spiritual program. We won’t ever become spiritual giants. But if we look at ourselves realistically, we’ll probably realize that we’ve been doing better than we’ve been feeling.

––––= ––––

Just for today: I will examine myself realistically. I will seek the power to act on my best motives, and not to act on my worst.

vast nothings in thought and thoughtlessness.

there is neither right nor wrong just a time and a place to put the time and say what we say in the theater of oft inside the voice in our lives yet lived and in smiles yet to be smiled as when we find ourselves lost - in to the rocks rolling down streams of life and the melting of sand into the water of being where freedom is nothing and nothing is ever free behind my eyes is were I look to see when the streams of consciousness blends with the right words and makes all the wrong stops along the road of blissnessless
blissnessless should be a word just because that is the expression of expression less feeling like I almost feel now but then over more so of the edges that are a crust of lust and life inside the pressures of broken hearts and burnt candles in insensitive incenses that smolder like the living of lies often so secure in there denial that being becomes much of the less then less of nothing by the end things remember then forget the death at the end of even there own off there own end over the next few edges of time I begin to smile like the nonsense that is typed in side the lines where out of the lines come infrequent mistakes of nothing but a broken edge and a broken reality the fragmented the mind of nothing more never but nor ...
