Feeling Powerless?

Powerlessness, the state of the shipwrecked, is an experience we all share anyway, if we are sincere, but Bill Wilson [founder of AA] found we are not very good at that either. He called it “denial.” It seems we are not that free to be honest, or even aware, because most of our garbage is buried in the unconscious. So it is absolutely essential that we find a spirituality that reaches to that hidden level. If not, nothing really changes.
