I listen to this when I am in trouble and need a meeting but there isn't one. I enjoy listening as well as reading. If I have a drive, I will turn it on in the car. I could listen to the Big Book every day, although I don't. I am never tired of it, or going to meetings.
The program of the Twelve Steps is a miracle. It is a clear path to healthy living and a healthy spiritual life. Most of us, by the time we find the Twelve Steps, are broken even if we don't know just how broken. Alcohol is deadly, as are other emotional conditions. The Twelve Steps are a way out of hell, of our own making/thinking, and into living a better life.
The people who are fortunate enough to recover are those who are honest with themselves.
The AA program is adaptable to all fallings and losses. Working it can only help you become a more compassionate human being willing to help others.
I am still working on this book. It is heady, and sometimes I think I am just not smart enough to understand or haven't the experience. As I go back to it, I find I do understand it. So I recommend that you read/listen to it in sections so that you can reflect on it.
I am not a Catholic, but I am interested in the spiritual path. It is not as approachable as Richard Rohr, but still as enlightening.
I like the topic, and I like the effort made to articulate the higher goals of my spiritual life and path.
Yes, I liked the performance.
