Real Change

Half measures availed us nothing.  We stood at the turning point.  We asked His protection and care with complete abandon.

This is a passage I hear often, sometimes more than once a week.  It describes a moment of crisis.  It speaks of desperation, of a life and death moment of decision.  “Complete abandon” is also unambiguous:  it means, “With everything we’ve got.”

This is what we preach in AA:  total surrender to God.  Life by unrestrained faith.  It’s the last alternative for people who see only death as an outcome to their way of living.

Yet it’s very difficult to sustain this perspective on one’s life.  Step Eleven:  Continued with prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, seeking only knowledge of his will and the power to carry it out.

…  You wanna know what kills me?

In multiple comments to reporters, Mr. Trump sought to deflect attention from his actions and tarnish Mr. Biden, a leading contender for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

“What Biden did is a disgrace. What his son did is a disgrace,” Mr. Trump said. He later added, “If a Republican ever did what Joe Biden did, if a Republican ever said what Joe Biden said, they’d be getting the electric chair right now.”

How does Trump ever get the energy to carry on with this charade day after day, year after year?  These people without any spiritual focus want to clutter up the landscape of the public consciousness with a trivial awareness of themselves and their own lying actions.
