A Beautiful Journey

Divisions create discord. Rarely does one set out to deliberately sow discord. Instead it is a byproduct of self-interest or self-centered fear. Unity of purpose and spirit results from new attitudes. The reason OA can have unity as an undergirding Principle is because we have the Twelve Steps, which transform our hearts, helping us focus on service done with humility. It’s a lifetime’s work; and for us who are recovering from compulsive eating, it’s a beautiful journey taken one step at a time.
