WORD UP For Today;

As God IS With 'IN' US, so too is the 'dragon' which wants to destroy us. Slaying the dragon comes 'IN' 'Climbing, Stepping Up' Jacobs Ladder, Out 'IN' OverComing the 'entanglement of the 'power lines' of man'. 'Playing the Strings Within Us' 'IN' Practice of Spiritual Principles as Our 'Guide Lines' brings Us Freedom where there is ALL POWER not 'manpower'.

It's Not Fair to Anyone to "Separate Our Side".

"How long, how long will I slide?

Separate my side?

I Heard Your Voice through a photograph...

Once you KNOW you can never go back

I gotta Take it on the Other Side" - Red Hot Chili Peppers

"Break 'ON' Through..." - The Doors (are 'Open' for ALL to Enter 'INTU'). Where WE Learn 'IN' having a 'Greater Understanding' of What 'Matters' Most... IS...Not 'matter' at all. aka, Spirit Creates form. Nothing in this world can 'lock down' the Spiritual (Wo)Man except 'powers of suggestions' of the 'Psycho-babble' of man.

WORD For Today; METANOIA - 'IN' One's OWN Journey of Changing One's mind, heart, self, or 'Way of Life'.

- Metanoia - Transformative Change of Heart; especially: a Spiritual Convers(at)ion....

- Living 'IN' 'Atonement - A-tone(Music, Uni-Verse), At-One-Ment - 'IN' the MO-Ment, One-Mind (Both Hemispheres of the Intuitive and Rational) Where WE 'BE' Come Whole 'IN' Knowing and Living Along Spiritual Guide-Lines 'IN' Our Spiritual Development where 'In the Moment there IS...No 'Time', hence WE LIVE FOR-EVER-LONG as We 'Reflect 'Intu' One Another for We no longer see Our 'selves' in the mirror, but 'SEE' Others Within the 'Infinity Light Mirror'.

"Everything 'IS' Full and Pure at its Source and Precisely There, NOT OUTSIDE." - Meister Eckhart

"O Seekers, Remember, All distances are traversed by those who yearn to 'BE' Near the Source of their 'Being'." - Kabir

'BE' .."To Thine Own 'Self' 'BE'...True".

Bringing the Truth and Sanctity Back to OUR 12 Step "Cure"

(Y)Our 12 Step "CURE" has been Rediscovered for Us to Share For All.    The Engine Room is a 'place' for US to Discover and Realize Our Infinite Potential in Living 'til Our Dreams Come True.  HOW?  A 'change up' of Our old ways of practice (-ism defined - "practice the use of") into a Conscious Practice of Spiritual, Moral Principles in Living.  We Receive a New Reality in Knowing a New Found Freedom, Happiness and True Joy in Living.  This philosophy in 'Learning to Live' without limits brings Us 'in Closer Contact' of that which IS.  We can 'SEE' Absolute Truth represented as a 'LINE' in Walking the 'Line'.   We are not perfect 'Walking the Line', but as We Practice, We come in alignment with the essence of our True 'Being'.    Through "Practicing Spiritual Principles" We Come Together 'IN' Higher Vibration, Frequency, Energy as Nicolae Tesla explains to think of the Uni-verse as the "Song Remains the Same".  Our 'Practice' brings about a New Realization via KNOWLEDGE.  "We are Masters of Our Own Destiny".  Through practice, we come UP Out of the 'dis-ease' 'Intu' 'Knowing "Livin' IS Free and Easy".  We come to 'BE' 'in command' of Our Ship in Being 'at-ease' 'IN' Harmonic Balance...Being Made Whole.  It's that simple.  It's not easy, hence We call it 'Work'.  It's Your 'Work' of the 'Great Work' in harnessing (Y)OUR horse POWER of (Y)OUR 'Engine Room'....(Y)OUR Room with a VIEW.  HEY!!!!  WE Are 'VIEW MASTERS' 'SEEING' 'IN' 4D!!!   

As there is 'Nothing new under the Sun', the Engine Room simply shares with you the Truth IS Found from within each and every one of us.  There are many 'outside resources' of which I am thankful for some many of great benefit for our communities, but ultimately if we want real Change, it all starts within Our Selves and "A Little Help from Our Friends".  Our poets share as Bob Marley quotes;  "Only Ourselves Can Free Our Minds of Mental Slavery".  The Beatles sing;  "You say you want a Revolution...We All want to Change the World....Well you Know...We Got to Free Our Minds instead".  

Here in the Engine Room, We 'SEE' Our Healing "materializes (manifests) as we work (practice) for them" - Promises of the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous.   John F. Kennedy said, "Ask not what your country can do for you, but ask (yourself) what you can do for your country".  WE CAN CHANGE the things WE CAN and 'SEE' the Answer comes from within US as We Give what is within Us, as in St. Francis Prayer, "Give, expecting nothing in return" and it Does RETURN!!!  just as sure as what "We Reap what We Sow".   Our Thoughts determine our actions thus We 'BE' of Good "Cause and Effect".  Ahhh!  The simplicity of it all as Truth Always IS easy to understand here as 'Good Karma'.                               

The Engine Room is Sanctioned and Registered as an official 'meeting room' with the General Services Offices of Alcoholics Anonymous.  I, John Kiehl, have been the General Service Representative and Support You as an 'Official humble Sponsor'.  

I 'SEE' this For All People to Realize True Peace and Happiness in 'Coming to KNOW their "True Nature Child" (Steppenwolf).  Come On 'In' and Discover (Y)Our Essence of Life and "..Live for Our Dreams and a Pocket Full of Gold (True Spiritual Self) - Over the Hills and Far Away, Led Zeppelin.   BE 'ON (Y)Our Hero's Journey to Know, "It's not the struggle in the quest, but the rapture (ecstasy) of the revelation" - Joseph Campbell.

Let's Get Some 'Streetwise Spirituality' in having the "Wisdom to Know" thereby not in confusion by personalities coming before Practicing Spiritual Principles as Our Guides to progress.  As we may be "trapped in the devils bargain", It IS OUR Divine Birthright to Know HOW to "....Get Back to the Garden" (CSN&Y)  

We 'Awaken' out of Our 'sleep', Intuitively Knowing what used to baffle us.  We 'Come to' KNOW via the Practice of Moral, Spiritual Principles of  Universal/Natural Law.  

The Engine Room stands firm in the FACT;  "The 'Key', the 'Lock', the 'Answer', the 'Power' Comes From Within ones 'Self' to 'See the Light' and Overcome All the Obstacles in the way'.   Though "Fear has such a haunting mass appeal", Here in the Engine Room, We "...Find WE should 'BE' the one behind the Wheel" - Incubus.  Who is better to Live ones' Life than the one Living it? 

FACT;  Thoughts determine Action resulting in Behavior.  As We Think in what We have to 'Give',  'In' Following Our Bliss to GENerate, Produce, Create, Manifest a New Reality of a 'Renewed Mind, Body, and Spirit,  'Follow Through' is Key.  We have principles laid at Our feet which Guide Us in Manifesting "Our Dreams Come True" - Aerosmith.   "Faith without Action is dead".  Karma IS as "Truth OR Consequences", WE simply Reap a Better Harvest when WE Consciously Practice in 'Being' Moral With One Another.  We Can 'BE' "A Rebel WITH a Good Cause".  Here, "WE Will Choose a Path that's Clear, We Will Choose Free Will" - Rush

For those of Us who think its High Time to "Check 'In' to Find what Condition Our 'Condition is In" (Kenny Rogers) then Come (in) to, Wake Up and KNOW in YOUR Revelation as "More IS Revealed".   Unveil Your Maya of Illusion as WE "Come Together" in Our 'Age of Aquarius'.  

As We climb Our 'Jacobs Ladder' on Our Spiral 'Stairway to Heaven' We  KNOW a New Meaning and Purpose for US to 'BE' the Rebel With a Cause for Real Change in Our World. 

This is FOR those who are sincerely wanting to Know a Higher Plane of Existence in Being Free of whatever 'device' which has caused us pain, suffering, and mental slavery.  So, if you're tired of the 'tricks', 'hustles', and 'con-games' then Make a 'MOVE'-ment.  

There has never been a better time to align ourselves with the 'Great Awakening', this 'Quickening' Happening on Earth today. Let's "Come Together" over you and Change the World for We Do KNOW What to Do!

Hello! My name is John Kiehl. As I  had the desire to stop out of utter desperation to find a higher place of existence, I’ve come to KNOW and 'SEE'  HOW the True intent of the 12 Step Cure IS For All Human Beings to BE Free "of our own 'device' .  WE do NOT have to be an alcoholic or addict forever.  I AM not trying to 'convert' or 'change' anyone's beliefs, indoctrination, or way of thought.   I AM merely Sharing the Knowledge I've acquired in HOPE WE CAN Help Others Receive a 'New (perspective on) Life'.  

Over the past 4 and a half years, we've immersed ourselves in relentless research, study, observation, and participation in more than 3,000 12-step meetings throughout the country.  This has given US the 'Insight and Knowledge' WE can Share with Others in Hope of making OUR MOVE-ment in the world for a better place to ''BE'.

I welcome ALL who may be 'OPEN and WILLING'  to 'SEE' 'IN'  having a 'Greater Understanding' HOW WE 'Can Bring Our 'Selves''  True Freedom, Peace, and Joy 'IN' LIVING.
