The Camel And Alcoholics Anonymous

Latest Recovery Design

Dr Bob’s story of the AA Camel

The Alcoholics Anonymous Camel symbol

The camel each day goes twice to his knees. He picks up his load with the greatest of ease. He walks through the day with his head held high. And stays for that day, completely dry.

Spiritual Principles
Prayer
Faith
Spirituality
Sobriety
– One day at a time.

Dr Bob, physician, and a cofounder of Alcoholics Anonymous – ". . . would explain prayer by telling how the camels in a caravan would kneel down in the evening, and the men would unload their burdens. In the morning, they would kneel down again, and the men would put the burdens back on. ’It’s the same with prayer,’ Dr. Bob said. ’We get on our knees to unload at night. And in the morning when we get on our knees again, God gives us just the load we are able to carry for that day.’" 
Dr. Bob and the Good Oldtimers (1980), page 229

CAMEL PRAYER
"The tasks of the day can pass with ease when a camel or I start on our knees.
One Master we serve, the camel and I, and stay for that day completely dry."

From: This website

I find the symbolism of the Camel to be extremely comforting and way amazing that Dr. Bob was led to tell that story thru his higher power.
