Experience is not what happens to a man. It is what a man does with what happens to him. -Aldous Huxley

Experience is the key. Experience allows me to appreciate what living is all about. Love is to be felt. Forgiveness is to be experienced. Humility is to be lived in action.

Hope is to be recognized in the brightness of the eye. Life is to be experienced. That is spirituality. –Father Leo | More…


Today I have a spiritual program that offers me the world; it sets no limits on my horizons. It encourages me to discover my potential and live it. The education I have gained in my sobriety seems unending and unstoppable.

Now is the time to stop listening to ourselves and start listening to pros, those who have gone before us. When we follow their lead, exciting changes happen. First we stay sober. We regain self-respect. We meet people we respect and become friends. Our families start to trust us again. And why? Because we gave up doing it our way and listened. We listened to the experts. –Keep It Simple
