What matters?

You can do all the inventories you like. You can go around making amends dramatically to everyone you have ever harmed. You can sponsor scores of people. You can go to a thousand AA meetings. You can pray and meditate for hours a week and go on fancy retreats. You can do important service in all sorts of ways.

None of this matters, however, if you're not treating the people around you kindly and if you're placing your own wishes ahead of their welfare.

Let's not louse this up.

Thank you for sharing :)

reminds me of Dr. Bob´s farewell talk:

"Our Twelve Steps, when simmered down to the last, resolve themselves into the word "love" and "service".
