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

As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will 

not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again 

and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind 

of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.


-- Henry David Thoreau

Recovery Quotes

Once we have come into agreement with these ideas, it is really easy to begin 

the practice of Step Three. In all times of emotional disturbance or indecision, 

we can pause, ask for quiet, and in the stillness simply say: "God grant me the 

serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to  change the things I 

can, and wisdom to know the difference. Thy will, not mine, be done."

Recovery Quotes

For Today -- A sensation appears, and liking or disliking begins. This fleeting moment, if we are unaware of it, is repeated and intensified into craving and aversion, becoming a strong emotion that eventually overpowers the conscious mind. We become caught up in the emotion, and all our better judgment is swept aside. The result is that we find ourselves engaged in unwholesome speech and action, harming ourselves and others. We create misery for ourselves, suffering now and in the future,…See More

Recovery Quotes

For Today -- He may be kind, considerate, patient, generous; even modest and self-sacrificing. On the other hand, he may be mean, egotistical, selfish and dishonest. --Alcoholics Anonymous, page 61 ********************************************************** What you are focused on in your mind is what you attract.  Like attracts itself to like.  Once you know that what you think about is what expands, you have to get really careful about what you think about. -- Dr. Wayne…See More
