This tradition reminds me that we are all part of the solution and we are all equal in that part that we play
I wouldn't say I govern. But I won't sit back in silence
I know what you mean effective leadership for me is about disagreeing without becoming disagreeable
Its about the fellowship and not me
How does anonymity help me understand this tradition
It helps me my considering the needs of others as well as my needs in this fellowship if I look at us all as a part of the fellowship and equal parts I will be valid in my opinions and in my acceptance of others opinions
The tradition is about a group conscience through our HP's. Not my personal will or influence
How do I practice anonymity in terms of this tradition
Personally I practice anonymity by keeping my ego in check and listening for the lone voice
Fulfilling my role as a trusted servant to carry the message and do my duties assigned to me no more. As well as encouraging continuity
Question 10 describe any Bridges between this tradition and one or more of the 12 steps
Step three step five and step 12 come to mind
If I want to work on God's will I need to turn my will over if I want to have any hope of getting rid of my ego I need to be working step five and with a spiritual awakening I will be more able to be inclusive and stay in harmony with unity
Steps 2 3 10 & 12
What do these Bridges teach me about my recovery
Basically they teach me to let go and let God and to not take myself so seriously that I get upset with the littlest thing that seemingly goes not my way
Any step that teaches me to be God centered and not self centered applys to the tradition
Question 11 what more can I do to put the principles of this tradition into action
I agree faith and trust
First of all the principles involved in this tradition our Unity selflessness Hospitality surrender love empathy acceptance anonymity Goodwill commitment safety and humility
Basically selfless service not selfish service it's not about me it's about we and it's about time
Keep things simple. Work my steps and up my game on focusing on our primary purpose
How would applying this tradition change my attitudes and actions
By applying this tradition I would trust the people that are elected into their positions until they prove they cannot be trusted I wouldn't be naive but I also wouldn't be hypercritical
It has taught me to keep my ego in check and not be afraid to ask for help
Well i think we should save this next section for next week and c if we can get more willingness. Things will pick up once the region gets involved. I've asked the RCM to add us to his report
Sounds good. Wrap up Members next week?
Pls read serenity prayer for your self and we'll sign off
Ciao 4 now
Jft. Have a good day!
