Tuesday Night in England Meeting

. . . AND LETTING GO OF IT

. . . primarily fear that we would lose something we already
possessed or would fail to get something we demanded.
Living upon a basis of unsatisfied demands, we were in a
state of continual disturbance and frustration. Therefore,
no peace was to be had unless we could find a means of
reducing these demands The difference between a demand
and a simple request is plain to anyone.
TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 76

Peace is possible for me only when I let go of expectations.
When I'm trapped in thoughts about what I want and what
should be coming to me, I'm in a state of fear or anxious
anticipation and this is not conducive to emotional sobriety.
I must surrender —over and over—to the reality of my
dependence on God, for then I find peace, gratitude and
spiritual security.
