    The Fact Of The Matter (1989)

    I was dying of alcoholism and drug addiction. I've been to jails. wrecked cars, walked on the railing of bridges with about a 200 ft drop waiting to die. My experience as the result of the steps in A.A. changed all that. Some for the good. Some for the bad. But ultimately it...

    I am a firm believer

    that spirituality can exist as endless things. Spirituality is what you want it to be. It's belief in something that gives you hope about your existence and the life of those yet to come. I struggled for awhile with a God concept. When I first became sober in 2013, I was told...

    Although I am on my own spiritual path I am not

    religious. I do believe people who are religious can be spiritual but I do not believe the two terms are interchangeable. If anyone agrees (or doesn't in a constructive way) I would love to chat.

    It occurs to me that

    while spiritual texts such as the bible were inspired in their writing, there needs to also be inspiration in the reading. The Holy Spirit guiding both the writers and the readers. Without the Holy Spirit scriptures are like a lock without a key.

    spirit says "love yourself to feeling
