In hoc Signo Vinces | あなたのためのビジョン | A Vision for You


     The struggle of today, is not altogether for today -- it is for a vast future also. With a reliance on Providence, all the more firm and earnest, let us proceed in the great task which events have devolved upon us.

--Abraham Lincoln,1861 Message to Congress


     Can we now, with the help of God as we understand Him, handle (our difficulties as ) bravely as our nonalcoholic friends often do? Can we transform these calamities into assets, sources of growth and comfort to ourselves and those about us? 

--Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions (127)
      (Yes! There) is a substitute and it is vastly more than that. It is a fellowship in Alcoholics Anonymous. There you will find release from care, boredom and worry. Your imagination will be fired. Life will mean something at last. The most satisfactory years of your existence lie ahead. Thus we find the fellowship, and so will you. 

Alcoholics Anonymous  (152:2)

Welcome as a witness to a fools journey out of the darkness. I welcome all tidings - you are all my teachers on this path toward a meaningful and purposeful sobriety.
