The Camel And Alcoholics Anonymous
– 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.
