A FELLOWSHIP OF FREEDOM

“. . . if only men were granted absolute liberty, and were compelled to obey no one, they would voluntarily associate themselves in the common interest.”
AS BILL SEES IT, p. 50

When I no longer live under the dictates of another or alcohol, I live in a new freedom. When I release the past and all the excess baggage I have carried for so very long, I come to know freedom. I have been introduced into a life and a fellowship of freedom. The Steps are a “recommended” way of finding a new life, there are no commands or dictates in A.A. I am free to serve from desire rather than decree. There is the understanding that I will benefit from the growth of other members and I take what I learn and bring it back to the group. The “common welfare” finds room to grow in the society of personal freedom.
