When a person drowns himself in negative thinking he is committing an unspeakable crime against himself. ~ Maxwell Maltz

Birth of a God Box

Each god box is unique . They start from oak trees in Julian, California. But instead of being cut for fire wood they transform into a fine piece of art. The wood is brought down to my shop in Encinitas ,California, where I personally hand carve each individual box. They are sanded then finished with non-toxic Tung oil. Polished with organic soapstone, made up of pure carnauba wax and walnut oil. Each box is perfect in its imperfection. No two boxes are the same. What starts out looking like lump of wood, turns out to be an inspired piece of art. Its beauty is a gift of mother nature.

What is a God Box ?

A place to put a prayer, issues, good wishes to someone, or to unload anything that is troubling you. It has been used in different cultures, 12 step programs and various spiritual organizations

Recovery Quotes

For Today --

What sort of thinking dominates an alcoholic who repeats 

time after time the desperate experiment of the first drink? 

Friends who have reasoned with him after a spree which 

has brought him to the point of divorce or bankruptcy are 

mystified when he walks directly into a saloon. 

Why does he? Of what is he thinking?

Recovery Quotes

For Today – Actually, he may be helping you more than you are helping him. -- Alcoholics Anonymous, page 94 *************************************************************************************************But here was someone who did understand, or at least could.
