CODA TRADITION 10

  aww

MARIANNE ELIOT'S book "Zen under Fire" is a great treatise on codependency.

A relationship starved of emotion under a really straitened  situation.

In a posting below- there may be an item which could be banned and excluded from most 12 Step groups.

But for the fact it is about care-giving rather than care-taking.

 

Tradition 10: CoDA has no opinion on outside issues, hence the CoDA name ought never be drawn into public controversy.

 

Like a lot of steps and traditions the first for, or words have a key impact.

What the tradition does not say is this:-

No member has an opinion on outside issues, hence the CoDA name ought never be drawn into public controversy.

 

Okay- so we can those things to extremes.

I grew up in a family and community where any mention of religion or politics was taboo.

I saw Tv programmes, set 80 years ago where, after dinner, people would push their chairs back a little ands talk about anything and everything.

Okay- so most always, 80 years ago it was men who did this- while "the girls" did the dishes. hmm


So, today we know that put thoughts and opinions are discounted or ignored. Sometimes not even  sanctioned.

We cannot talk about Afghanistans today with out talking about Marianne Eliot's book, "Zen Under Fire"

Or Elizabeth A.Stanley's dense and evocative text:- "Widen the Window" Based on experience in the services and in Afghanistan.

 

We are not dummy's, nor are we babys any more! smile ...
