Recovery is possible. Once someone recovers there is a lifelong progression of development. It is spiritual growth.
No one has to go through life limping along in some imagined “RecoverING” mode. (Although many will try just that.)
It can happen over a stretch of time. Not a lifetime, but days - or even weeks. There are usually strings of ‘aha’ experiences involved.
It can be in a flash like lightning, or it can happen over a few weeks. If the individual is going to experience it, either are typical.
For him, recovery is race! He has got to find God now!
Many believe this gift is from God, given through the awakening experience of Bill Wilson who passed forward his experience encountering God, once he had it.It’s been religified, vilified, nullified by people in AA as well as out. But in its original unadulterated form, it leads to the magical condition that many of have come to see is the 4th dimension of existence written about by the co-founders.
That’s just not the experience depicted in the Book.But it is a handy justification for the lack of God-consciousness and ensures that AAs become trapped in human-aided, step-programming, instead of being liberated by the step program, metaphysically reprogramed by infilling God—consciousness.
PLUS more ridiculously good stuff:
