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 –

 

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.

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?

Recovery Quotes

For Today --Though we did not like their symptoms and the way these disturbed us, they, like ourselves, were sick too. We asked God to help us show them the same tolerance, pity, and patience that we would cheer-fully grant a sick friend. When a person offended we said to ourselves, "This is a sick man. How can I be helpful to him? God save me from being angry. Thy will be done."-- Alcoholics Anonymous, page 67*********************************************************************.... goodness…See More

Recovery Quotes

For Today – I grew up thinking that I had to perfect my personality, then I got into AA, and AA said, no, that isn't the way we do it: only God can remove our defects.

Recovery Quotes

For Today –  Here we ask God for inspiration, an intuitive thought or a decision. We relax and take it easy. We don't struggle. We are often surprised how the right answers come after we have tried this for a while.  -- Alcoholics Anonymous, page 13 *************************************************************************************Surrender is the last step in the seeking game.
