“12. Having had
a spiritual awakening
as the result of these steps,
we tried to carry this
message to alcoholics,
and to practice these
principles in all our affairs.”
BB, p. 60
It may appear to be a two part step
when in reality it is only one step because
you can’t do one part without doing the other.
If you are not practicing these principles
in all of your affairs,
better know as walking the walk,
you have no message to carry to other alcoholics.
The spiritual awakening is not a part of Step Twelve,
as a matter of fact if you have not had
a spiritual awakening by the time
you have reached the Twelfth Step
you may need to go back and review your
efforts beginning with Step One.
Today, be honest, carry the true message.
Recovery is one day at a time.
Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.
ME and the Boss
And, if no one has told you yet today,
God loves you and so do we.
