Al Anon’s logo is a triangle with a circle inside. The three sides of the triangle symbolize our three Legacies: Recovery through acceptance of the steps, Unity through acceptance of the Traditions, and Service through acceptance of the Concepts.
The Steps show me how to love myself; the Traditions show me how to love others, and the Concepts show me how to love the world I live in.
July is the 7th Month
Step 7: Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.
Many people confuse humility with humiliation. Humiliation has no place in our spiritual growth. When we speak of humility we speak of self-acceptance. By accepting that God can do for us what we cannot do for ourselves, we begin to achieve the humility that is necessary for change to take place.
Tradition 7: Every group out to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.
In Al-Anon we learn to take responsibility for our own recovery rather than expecting others to do the work for us. With the help of our Higher Power and our fellow members, we realize we no longer need to look for inner contentment outside of ourselves. We begin to care for ourselves financially, emotionally, physically and spiritually.
