Throughout our lives, we have heard at some point, “you need to be Honest, have some Patience, Acceptance, have Hope!” But, for many of us, we were never taught how. Being told, “you should be more Open-minded.” Does not give us more Open-mindedness.
It is not enough to read the Principles. The Principles are meant to be active, carried, shared. Principles are meant to be Lived.
We claim no Saint Hood, no status as Masters, as Gurus. We are all both students and teachers. After all, the best way to learn is to teach. What is shared here is but a continuous Journey as we learn to apply these Principles to our daily lives. With each new day, each new situation we will find new ways of applying and living by these principles. We Hope to encourage each other through our Sharing and Caring. "We can only keep what we have by giving it away."

A community of individuals who shares our differences to encourage strength through diversity. And to influence change in the world through encouraging change in each other.
Hey there, my name is Paul David.
I am a recovering addict/alcoholic with over a decade clean & sober. In that time I have managed to regain my career. I married my best friend and confidant (and sometimes my mortal enemy) 😉 and raise a beautiful (sometimes challenging) family. None of which I would have ever thought possible. I have been an active member of 12 step fellowships for over to 30yrs. (11 of which was trying to prove the programs wrong!) Since I have been back in recovery, I have been honored to speak on several occasions. Mostly on specific topics of my experience with the 12 Steps, 12 Traditions. And my understanding of the application of Spiritual Principles.
I have spent well over two decades, practicing and studying different forms and styles of meditation. Using this experience, I began working on a personal series of meditations based directly on my understanding of Spiritual Principles and the 12 Steps & 12 Traditions of Recovery.
