“….all sorts of remarkable things happened…” 4th Promise of Depressed Anonymous

  4th PROMISE OF DEPRESSED ANONYMOUS

   ‘WE COMPREHEND THE WORD SERENITY  AND WE KNOW PEACE OF MIND.”

“The quality or state of being serene all takes time, work and discipline. I believe that the big Book of AA says it best: When we sincerely took such a position, all sorts of remarkable things followed.  We had a new employer; being all powerful he provided what we needed, if we kept close to him and performed his work well.   Established on such a footing we became less and less interested in plans, our little designs and ourselves.  More and more we became interested in seeing what we could contribute to life. As we felt new power flow in, as we enjoyed peace of mind, as we discovered we could face life successfully, as we became conscious of his presence, we began to lose our fear of today, tomorrow or the hereafter. We’re reborn.”
