I was wondering if any of you are in the AA or indeed any other 12 step fellowship? I'd love to speak with any of you sometime. I'm having some reservations about the steps as they are very Christian in their terminology, I've had to change sponsors several times as they don't seem to accept my Buddhist principles in the steps.
I'm not asking for medical advice, just wondering if there are any other members of the fellowship here? Feel free to PM me if you wish to remain anonymous.
"The original heart/mind shines like pure, clear water with the sweetest taste. But if the heart is pure, is our practice over? No, we must not cling even to this purity. We must go beyond all duality, all concepts, all bad, all good, all pure, all impure. We must go beyond self and nonself, beyond birth and death. When we see with the eye of wisdom, we know that the true Buddha is timeless, unborn, unrelated to any body, any history, any image. Buddha is the ground of all being, the realization of the truth of the unmoving mind.” Ajahn Chah
