A New Pair Of Glasses

In 1975 at a retreat of 64 alcoholic men in Pala Mesa, CA, Chuck C. gave a series of talks that were to become an AA classic. Transcribed nearly word for word, the talk was published in book form and called A New Pair of Glasses. There were seven segments in the series. Segments 5 and 6 are combined into one download in this set. Each download will fit easily on a standard CD-R.

Part 3 of 7 - "The Power of Truth" - "And practice these principles in all of our affairs." Step Ten says, we "continued to take personal inventory, and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it."

Now I do not believe that this means that we go back through our lives and redo Step Four. I think this means that we look at our day. How closely are we living according to these principles today. How're we doing today.

Step Ten has been very, very, very important to me because up until the time I got into this program there was no way that I could say, "I don't know." There was no way I could say, "I don't know" particularly in business. You don't say "I don't know" in business. They ask you anything and you answer! No way you could say, "I don't know." I'm quite sure that if you'd asked me to explain Einstein's theory, I'd have explained it. If you asked me how God created the earth I'd have told you and I very likely would have said, "Now on the third day, we did thus and so...." I couldn't say, "I don't know." I came to the program, and I learned by doing the things that the program told me to do, that the truth was the most powerful thing on earth."
