All About Nothing

 

 If a man thinks he is something, when he is nothing,

he deceives himself.

Galatians 6:3 KJV

 

   ….have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: who being

 in the very nature of God, did not consider equality with God

 something to be used to his own advantage;

rather he made himself nothing…

Philippians 2:5b-7

 

To reach satisfaction in all

Desire its possession in nothing

To come to possess all

Desire the possession of nothing

To arrive at being all,

Desire to be nothing.

Saint John of the Cross

 

 

I've been freed from the self

that pretends to be someone,

and in becoming no one,

I begin to live.

It is worthwhile dying,

to find out what life is. 

T.S. Elliot

 

 

At the hospital, I was separated from alcohol for the last time for treatment seemed wise for I showed signs of delirium tremens. There I offered myself to God, as I then understood him, to do with me as he would, and for the first time I admitted that of myself, I was nothingAA Founder, Bill W.

 

· We have made a decision to be nothing.
