On Selfishness

Chapter Four of the AA Big Book

“This is the how and why of it. First of all, we had to quit playing God. It didn’t work. Next, we decided that hereafter in this drama of life, God was going to be our Director. He is the Principal; we are His agents. He is the Father, and we are His children. Most good ideas are simple, and this concept was the keystone of the new and triumphant arch through which we passed to freedom”

My Comment: Selfishness is something that I could ill-afford. I have to be learn to be service in all my affairs. I must learn to be of service and not take pride over my charity. Service is the cure to the committee in my head.

But this a profound challenge given our inherent selfishness. I need to take this service from the rooms of AA, as OC Burner Meetup Organizer, at work, and my family. This should be one of my resolutions for this year.
