“Quite as important was the discovery that spiritual principles would solve all my problems.” – AA Big book, page 42. *
This quote is just profound to me. First what is a spiritual principle? Second, Does this mean I need to join a religion? Absolutely not. That was part of why Alcoholics Anonymous was a success, was because it was spiritual, not religious in it’s foundation.
Spiritual principles, to list are few are, love, patience, kindness, open mindedness, honesty, compassion, forgiveness, acceptance, to just name a few.
If I can apply those principles to any problem, my perceptions of that problem will change, and in turn, will help shed new light on the problem, and in turn, on solutions.
