A.A. Step 12 from the Original Manuscript -- Having had a spiritual experience as a result of this
course of action, we tried to carry this message to others, especially alcoholics, and to practice
these principles in all our affairs.
I read this to mean that I am, by example, to carry a message of Love and Hope and Peace into

The co-founders of Alcoholics Anonymous met through the Oxford Group, and codified several of its tenets into AA, the first twelve-step program.

The Oxford Group was a Christian organization founded by the American Christian missionary Frank Buchman. Buchman believed that the root of all problems were the personal problems of fear and selfishness. Further, Buchman believed that the solution to living with fear and selfishness was to surrender one's life over to God's Plan.

William Temple, Archbishop of York, paid tribute to the Oxford Groups which "are being used to demonstrate the power of God to change lives and give to personal witness its place in true discipleship. ( CO Wikipedia)

~The Gift of Tears~

Joanne Liaw Avatar ©

Tears bring relief to a heavy heart
A heart clogged with unspoken sorrows
Why do we wish that tears would depart?
Tears heal the soul like a lush, green meadow


God has given us the gift of tears
No tears that wet His feet are wasted
Cry if you must; without shame and fear
Christ comforts the broken-hearted


Divine tears fell at Gethsemane
Can you feel the anguish of Christ's tears?
Tears and blood mingled in agony
Because of Christ, to God, we can draw near


Tears brought relief to my heavy heart
A heart clogged with unexpressed sorrows
God's love has caused sorrows to depart
God's love gives me hope for tomorrow

For a Velvet Revolution

The winds of change dance in our lives,
Like northern lights chasing their own shadows in the sky.
We can see better ways and easier days,
We know there must be a more honorable and humane way.
It is for us to pick the flower in our minds,
It is matter of standing up and not just standing behind.


We dream the soft solution alive,
With the strains of peace and duty with which we strive.
It is the wind of time that crosses our path,
It is the scarred skin of our souls that know human wrath.
We, standing together, are the solution,
We are the warf, weave and frame for a velvet revolution.

<<<What is a Warrior>>>

A Warrior is the protector of
his family,clan and his tribe


A Warrior is the guardian of the
old ways so that they are not
forgotten


A Warrior is not motivated by
greed, political ambition or
fame


A Warrior will not put himself
above others in need


And above all
A Warrior is the living spirit of
our Grandfathers

"Oh, my God, Why must it hurt so?"
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
My child, you speak to me with words,
Because that is how you have learned to speak. But I speak to you with feelings, Feelings that you can recognize.
Sometimes I speak to you with Joy,
And feelings of Love and Peace and Serenity,
Of Comfort and a Knowingness about Yourself.
These feelings are those I would have you have,
As you follow My Path which I have set before you.
There are times, however,
When you set out on a path on your own,
A path that you need to travel.
But in that path that is not My Path,
I must warn you at times of your danger.
It is at those times that you know Pain,
Feelings of Aloneness, Despair and Agony.
These feelings, well, they are incomprehensible and demoralizing.
Sometimes the pain becomes very acute,
But that is the feeling that I must give you,
So that you will understand that you have strayed from My Path,
And that I wish for you to return.
You ask me why it must hurt so. Because,
MY CHILD, I'VE GOT TO GET YOU BACK
You see, I have set you the Path
And have given you the instructions,
But you have refused to SEE and to HEAR.
Let this be a lesson.
You that can see, SEE, and You that can hear, HEAR.
But,
If you can neither SEE nor HEAR, Then must you FEEL,
For,
From the FEELING of your pain,
Will be accomplished your SEEING and HEARING,
And you will UNDERSTAND that
I AM LOVE
