Yet another great talk by Don P

one of my AA heros........ Joe H's sponsor, Mark H's sponsor, and a giiiiiiiiiifted speaker.

Here he is speaking about "The Doctor's Opinion."

--- A facebook friend shared this on his SkyDrive. download it quickly - I'm not sure how long it'll be up.

Don on the Doctor's Opinion is priceless, too. Here's a link to talk he gave at the Pockets of Enthusiasm conference in Virginia Beach, hosted on my personal sky drive.

The one thing I heard Don say that I never would have heard in a meeting was...
"I don't depend on the fellowship to keep me sober". If the fellowship had been able to keep me sober, I never would have worked the steps.

>>> If it makes sense - It ain't spiritual!

"Go slowly,
rest in God often,
claim the power to work miracles in the lives of people,
everything in order,
go slowly from duty to duty,
everything in order,
rest and pray between duties"

“There is only one cause of unhappiness: the false beliefs you have in your head, beliefs so widespread, so commonly held, that it never occurs to you to question them.”-Anthony de Mello
