From the September 1965 magazine.

Carrying the Message


The mere fact of going on leave brings home to me very forcibly the many blessings that I have received since crossing the threshold of my first AA meeting, and I trust that I shall never cease to marvel and dwell on the changes that have taken place since those first faltering steps were taken some four years or so ago.

Undeniably a spiritual revolution has taken place so far as I am personally concerned. Now when I look back and think how I reacted under various circumstances and how I react today under similar circumstances, I have no doubt in my mind that a Higher Power is at work in my life. Acceptance has conquered Resentment, and Give has supplanted Take--imperfectly no doubt.
