The solution on offer through working the steps is both morale and spiritual…

Spiritual in developing a natural faith born out of repetitive practice of the principles in the 12 Steps.

“Here are thousands of men and women, worldly indeed. They flatly declare that since they have come to believe in a Power greater than themselves, to take a certain attitude toward that Power, and to do certain simple things, there has been a revolutionary change in their way of living and thinking. In the face of collapse and despair, in the face of the total failure of their human resources, they found that a new power, peace, happiness, and sense of direction flowed into them. This happened soon after they whole-heartedly met a few simple requirements.”
- We Agnostics The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous.
Proof of a power greater than yourself exists all around you in the people that have changed their lives by engaging that power.
Taking a certain attitude towards a power greater than yourself is a basic requirement for the solution to flow into your life.
The inventory steps point out to us that the only thing that stands in the way of ourselves and belief in a power greater than ourselves is our ego.

Willingness makes it easy…
What approach will you choose?
