Here's what's new at Eastlake Big Book Awakening:


💙 How It Works, Pages 61-63 (Michael K.)

In episode #128, Michael continues the Big Book Awakening series by reading from Chapter 5, How It Works, pages 61-63.

"Selfishness—self-centeredness! That, we think, is the root of our troubles. Driven by a hundred forms of fear, self-delusion, self-seeking, and self-pity, we step on the toes of our fellows and they retaliate. Sometimes they hurt us, seemingly without provocation, but we invariably find that at some time in the past we have made decisions based on self which later placed us in a position to be hurt."


Sunday Nights at 7 PM (ZOOM)

Tonight, Sunday, May 19, join us as Carol continues the Big Book Awakening series by reading Chapter 2, There is a Solution, page 27, paragraph 3.

“Yes,” replied the doctor, “there is. Exceptions to cases such as yours have been occurring since early times. Here and there, once in a while, alcoholics have had what are called vital spiritual experiences. To me these occurrences are phenomena. They appear to be in the nature of huge emotional displacements and rearrangements. Ideas, emotions, and attitudes which were once the guiding forces of the lives of these men are suddenly cast to one side, and a completely new set of conceptions and motives begin to dominate them. In fact, I have been trying to produce some such emotional rearrangement within you. With many individuals the methods which I employed are successful, but I have never been successful with an alcoholic of your description.”*
