Product Details: Front : the words "One Day at a Time" are found at the center of this recovery medallion. The outer band of this medallion is a deep navy that features the "four absolutes:" "Unselfishness * Honesty * Purity * Love "
Reverse: The Serenity Prayer (Abbreviated version) is written with block lettering and a metallic gold finish that is made vibrant by the deep blue that surrounds the prayer on the back.

About the Absolutes:
The four absolutes are as follows: Absolute Honesty, Absolute Unselfishness, Absolute Purity, and Absolute Love.

The importance of the four absolutes when applied to the program of Alcoholics Anonymous can perhaps best be summarized by Dr. Robert (Bob) Smith, co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous. Here is a short statement taken from the book The Co-Founders of Alcoholics Anonymous: Biographical Sketches: Their Last Major Talks:

The four absolutes, as we called them, were the only yardsticks we had in the early days, before the Steps. I think the absolutes still hold good and can be extremely helpful. I have found at times that a question arises, and I want to do the right thing, but the answer is not obvious. Almost always, if I measure my decision carefully by the yardsticks of absolute honesty, absolute unselfishness, absolute purity, and absolute love, and it checks up pretty well with those four, then my answer can’t be very far out of the way."
~Dr. Bob Smith
