The Promises and the emotions...

Whenever a 12 Step program is started we go on a
path to a new life filled with promises.  The promises
are what we work for and when it arrives, our
emotions can overwhelm us.

Filled with these new found emotions, we can have
an ear to ear grin or we can cry uncontrollably.  We
may even experience pain, maybe for the first time!  

It's all good through because without emotions,
without feelings we can not grow.

To the right is a video about the promises of the 12
Step program

Spirituality vs. Religion

While many may believe that the two are one in the same.  I disagree.  You
can be spiritual without being religious.  And you can also be religious without
being spiritual.  Four quotes I've heard about the difference that I truly enjoy.

~ Religion is for people scared of going to hell, while spirituality is for
people who've been in hell. ~

~ Religion is man's search for a God. Spirituality is God's search for a
man. ~

~ Religion has torn the world apart.  Spirituality is teaching the world to
hold hands. ~

~ Religion is belief in someone else's experience.  Spirituality is
having your own experience. ~
