One of my most favorite people in AA, Bill M. hails from Canada, eh! He sent me the following writing and I think it deserves a wider audience. With his permission I am posting this on my blog series to get that audience. This posting is verbatim and not change in any manner. If you have comments or ideas feel free to post them on this blog. I will ensure that he gets them.
Love and light
Our human nature longs for a loving we experience with our blood family and in particular with our parents. Ego wants to be admired and loved and supported and if it doesn't get that it rebels and feels abandoned and rejected and alone; or we try and latch into another co-dependent relationship to replace our lost family.
