2, the next to last

from Wassie,

‘Namaste! Hearing the voice of recovery reminds us that participation is key to harmony. By doing so, we are Twelve-stepping each other by showing up for our life and recovery. Pass-it-on: We, who have found serenity and a better way of life through recovery in the We Program, turn to the Traditions for guidance because we want the opportunity for recovery to continue to be available to us and to those who come after us. We observe the Traditions because they work. We refer to this as “obedience to the unenforceable,” and our survival as organization depends on it. Therefore, our individual recovery is as intimately bound to the guidance of the Twelve Traditions as it is to the Twelve Steps. The singleness of purpose shared by the individual member to get help (Tradition 3), and each group to carry the message of recovery by keeping the rooms of recovery open (Tradition 5)
brings us together to help each other and heal under the care and protection of the We Program and our collective Higher Power. Longtimers reminds us, “Steps are healing us individually, and Traditions are bringing us together as a group to help each other and feed our recovery by sharing experience, strength and hope.” We are blessed for having a lifetime family, the We Program….I recover at my own pace without the fear of what other people think of me. This is genuine democracy in action. Take care my friend and and stay well. I love you. Happy to be alive, the rest is a bonus. Gratefully, Wassie’
