Topic for the week:
Being the beginning of the 12th month, I would like to share on the 12th Step:
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.
I like emphasizing different parts when I share the steps. The promise is right there, a spiritual awakening. Mine wasn’t like Bill’s p.14), A spiritual awakening means many things to many people. When I was new I expected something mind blowing like Bill had but mine was more gradual as explained on p.567
Carrying the message has meant many things over the years. My exuberance in the beginning only put people off. I have learned I am more effective if I lead by example—attraction rather than promotion. I also have to remember the step only talks about carrying the message, not converting the masses, I don’t have the special touch, where I can tap you HEALED.
So, tell me what does the step mean to you? How has it changed your life?
The meeting is now open you can share on the topic or anything else you need to share about. Don’t leave without sharing your burden, someone amongst us has been where you are and would be happy to share their ESH.
