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 –

 

Most of our experiences are what the psychologist William 

James calls the “educational variety” because they develop 

slowly over a period of time. Quite often friends of the new-

comer are aware of the difference long before he is himself.

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 – Were we kind and loving toward all?-- Alcoholics Anonymous, page 86 ******************************************************************** We are not obliged to like anyone; but we are under a binding obligation to love everyone, love, or charity as the Bible calls it, meaning a vivid sense of impersonal good will. This has nothing directly to do with the feelings, though it is always followed, sooner or later, by a wonderful feeling of peace and happiness.-- The Sermon on the Mount,…See More

Recovery Quotes

For Today – Perhaps the best thing of all for me is to remember that my serenity is inversely proportional to my expec­tations. The higher my expectations of Max and other people are, the lower is my serenity. I can watch my serenity level rise when I discard my expectations. But then my “rights” try to move in, and they, too, can force my serenity level down. I have to discard my “rights,” as well as my expectations, by asking myself, “How important is it, really? How important is it com­pared…See More

Recovery Quotes

For Today – We had a new Employer. Being all powerful, He provided what we needed, if we kept close to Him and performed His work well. Established on such a footing we became less and less interested in ourselves, our little plans and designs. More and more we became interested in seeing what we could contribute to life.   -- Alcoholics Anonymous, page 63****************************************************************************If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no…See More

Recovery Quotes

For Today – We began to see that the world and its people really dominated us. In that state, the wrong-doing of others, fancied or real, had power to actually kill. How could we escape?-- Alcoholics Anonymous, page 66*********************************************************************To become the spectator of one's own life is to escape the suffering of life.  -- Oscar Wilde*********************************************************************… “let go of the story” —and return to the only…See More
