I stand by the door

Poem by Samuel shoemaker who headed the Oxford Group movement Bill came to him to ask him to help him write the big book... Sam said "it's your baby... U do it...

But i will tell you what I told Ebbie when he came to me......"

I stand by the door, I neither go too far in nor stay too far out. The door is the most important door in the world.

It is the door through which men walk where they find God.
There is no use my going way inside and staying there  and they as much as I crave to know where the door is.

In all that so many ever find is only the wall where the door ought to be.

They creep along the wall like blind men With stretched grouping hands feeling for the door.

Knowing that  there must be a door.


Yet they never find it......... so ... I stand by the door The most tremendous thing is to help these men to find the door... The door to god.

The most important thing that any man or woman can do is to take hold  of one of those hands and put it on the latch.

The latch that clicks and opens only to the mans touch Men die outside the door, starving beggars die on cold nights and crowded cities in the dead of winter Due to want of what's within  their grasp.....

They live on the other side of it they live because they haven't found it.. and nothing else matters compared to helping them find it and open it and walk in and find him.

So I stand by the door.

I admire the  people that go way in but wish they have not forgot how it was before they got in. Then they would be able to find those people who have not found the door or run away from god. U can go too deeply and stay in there too long and forget the people  outside the door.

As for me I shall take my old accustom place, near enough to god to here him, and know that he is there.....But not so far from men as to not here them....  And remember that they are there too ...thousands of them....  millions of them...

But more important for me ....

One of them... 2 of them.... 10 of them...whose hands I intend to put on the latch...

So I shall stand by the door and wait for those who seek it.

I'd rather be the doorkeeper..  So I STAND BY THE DOOR. 

Step Prayers

Step 1. Today, I ask for help with my addiction. Denial has kept me from seeing how powerless I am and how my life is  unmanageable.  I need to learn and remember that  I have an incurable illness and that  abstinence is the only way to deal with it.


Step 2. I pray for an open mind so I may come to believe in a Power  greater than myself.  I pray for humility and the continued opportunity to increase my faith.  I don't want to be crazy anymore. 


Step 3. God, I offer myself to Thee To build with me and to do with me as Thou wilt. Relieve me of the bondage of self, that I may better  do Thy will. Take away my difficulties, that victory over them may bear witness to those I would help of Thy Power, Thy Love and  Thy Way of life, May I do Thy will always! 

--- Page 63 - A. A. Big Book 


Step 4. Dear God, It is I who have made my life a mess.  I have done it, but I cannot undo it.  My mistakes are mine, and I will begin a  searching and fearless moral inventory.  I will write down my wrongs,  but I will also include that which is good.  I pray for the strength to complete the task.. 


Step 5. Higher Power, My inventory has shown me who I am, yet I ask for Your help  in admitting my wrongs  to another person and to You. Assure me, and be with me, in this Step,  for without this Step I cannot progress in my recovery.  With Your help, I can do this, and I do it. 

Step 6. Dear God, I am ready for Your help in removing from me  the defects of character Which I now realize are an obstacle  to my recovery. Help me to continue being honest with myself  and guide me toward spiritual and mental health.


Step 7. My Creator, I am now willing that you should have all of me,  good and bad. I pray that you now remove from me every single defect of character which stands in the way of my usefulness to you and my fellows.  Grant me strength, as I go out from here to do your  bidding. Amen
-- Page 76 - A. A. Big Book 

Step 8. Higher Power, I ask Your help in making my list of all  those I have harmed. I will take responsibility  for my mistakes,  and be forgiving to others as You are forgiving to me. Grant me the willingness to begin my restitution. This I pray.


Step 9. Higher Power, I pray for the right attitude to make my amends, being ever mindful not to harm others in the process. I ask for Your guidance in making indirect amends. Most important, I will continue to make amends by  staying abstinent, helping others, and growing in spiritual progress.

Step 10. I pray I may continue: To grow in understanding and effectiveness; To take daily spot check inventories of myself; To correct mistakes when I make them; To take responsibility for my actions; To be  ever aware of my negative and self-defeating attitudes and behaviors; To keep my willfulness in check; To always remember I need Your help; To keep love and tolerance of others as my code; And to continue in daily prayer how I can best serve You, my Higher Power.

Step 11. Higher Power, as I understand You, I pray to keep my connection with You open and clear from the confusion of daily life. Through my prayers and meditation I ask especially  for freedom from self-will, rationalization, and wishful thinking. I pray for the guidance of correct thought and positive action Your will, Higher Power, not mine, be done.

Step 12. Dear God, My spiritual  awakening continues to unfold.  The help I have received I shall pass on and give to others, both in and out of the Fellowship. For this opportunity I am grateful.  I pray most humbly to continue walking day by day on the road of  spiritual progress. I pray for the inner strength and wisdom to  practice the principles of this way of life in all I do and say.  I need You, my friends, and the Program every hour of every day. 
This is a better way to live. 

 

Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous


1. We admitted we were powerless over alcohol - that our lives had become unmanageable.
2. Came to believe  that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.
4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
5. Admitted to  God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
6. Were entirely ready to have God remove all all these defects of character.
7. Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.
8. Made a list of all persons we  had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.
9. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
10. Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted  it.
11. Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of  these steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
