AA in Chiang Mai

Sawasdee Khrap

Just went to a great AA meeting in Chiang Mai – what made it better than others I have been to is that the members were from all over the globe.  German, Dutch, French, Australian, Middle East, British and so on.   Listening to them share, each with their own problems, but actually the same, really hit home that we all share the same joys, problems, and goals no matter where we are from – just the language is different.  Strip everyone of their Nationalism, Religion and Politics and just talk about their feelings and needs and find we are all the same  – just hiding behind these institutions.  It’s these institutions that fuck up our ability to communicate.  Meetings I went to in the Bay Area were generally limited to locals and so seeing these different views of the same problems was not there.

I’m really looking forward to the next meeting and getting to know the people there –

anyway, my thoughts
