A Viewer With Alarm

“I went through several fruitless years in a state called “viewing with alarm for the good of the movement”. I thought it was up to me to be always “correcting conditions”. Seldom had anybody been able to tell me what I ought to do, and nobody had ever succeeded in effectively telling me what I must do. I had to learn the hard way out of my own experience. “When setting out to `check’ others, I found myself often motivated by fear of what they were doing, self-righteousness, and even downright intolerance. Consequently, I seldom succeeded in correcting anything. I just raised barriers of resentment that cut off any suggestion, example, understanding, or love.”

“A.A.’s often say, `Our leaders do not drive by mandate; they lead by example.’ If we would favorable affect others, we ourselves need to practice what we preach – and forget the “preaching,” too. The quiet good example speaks for itself.”
