dAAve knows best. Yeah, right.

It's so nice to be perfect.
It eliminates any need for me to listen to the advice of others; I can just pretend I'm interested, then chuckle to myself. If he only knew what I know!

Sorry.
Many times in my life, this is the line of thinking inside my round but sluggish head.

How persistently we claim the right to decide all by ourselves just what we shall think and just how we shall act.
TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 37

If I accept and act upon the advice of those who have made the program work for themselves, I have a chance to outgrow the limits of the past. Some problems will shrink to nothingness, while others may require patient, well-thought out action. Listening deeply when others share can develop intuition in handling problems which arise unexpectedly. It is usually best for me to avoid impetuous action. When I put my faith in the spiritual power of the program, when I trust others to teach me what I need to do to have a better life, I find that I can trust myself to do what is necessary.
