Sue, I am sure that what has happened was the dialogue I have had with my sponsor. for one, she is all about GOD, not the I am opposed to that, but through dialogue I help her understand that I am in the process of changing my Karma and that I use Nam Myoho Renge Kyo to gain the wisdom and strength to do that. And she see's my calmness in my life.. although I may have chaos and at that moment I am "hurt or resentful", she see's that I don't stay in those modes for long periods and I usually have solutions to the situation.. So Dialogue is very important..thank you and Happy New Year..
Sue.. I am in AA, ALANON and SGI.. I use all three as my strengths to recovery. I feel that the biggest support is a sponsor that ACCEPTS MY GOD (Gohonzon) and ME KEEPING AN OPEN MIND about the steps, the program and how to integrate the principles of Buddhism and AA/Alanon into my daily life.. it really does work when you work put them all into perspective. thank you k
