Our body has received the gift of physical sobriety: a product of Grace and our cooperation in the Fellowship.
We are detached from harmful substances and have been healed physically.
Our mind has been given emotional sobriety: a product of Grace supported by our application of the Steps.
We are detached from our delusions, illusions and obsessions and have been healed emotionally; we are returned to sanity, balance and a sense of comfort.
Our will has been given spiritual sobriety: a product of Grace supported by our turning and willingness to be turned in Service.
We are detached from our innate selfishness, self-centeredness and have been healed spiritually; we are practicing our way of life – a practice of other/other-centeredness.
Step 1 We experience our powerlessness.
Steps 2 & 3 We begin to be aware of constant contact with a Power deep down inside.
Steps 4 – 10 We begin to have the obstacles to Power eliminated, or at least reduced.
Step 11 We begin to improve our conscious contact; we have a practice.
Step 12 We begin to enlarge our spiritual life; we practice service and principles in every aspect of our life.
We have a kit of spiritual tools: Fellowship, Steps, Service. Am I using this kit?
- What in my personal spiritual life needs improvement?
- What specific actions will I take to improve it?
- What are my specific commitments?
- How will I be accountable for these commitments?
