From last paragraph on page 97 “Those of us who have come to…

Soul work

Page 98:1 There is a direct linkage among self-examination, meditation, and prayer.
Above self-examination write ‘inventory.’

Page 98:2 As we have seen, self-searching is the means by which we bring new vision, action, and grace to bear upon the dark and negative side of our natures.
Above action write ‘Action Plan.’
Above dark and negative side write ‘selfishness.’

Q1. Are you doing your gratitudes and living in the attitude of gratitude? [If you are, you are going to have unshakeable willingness to do self-examination and prayer.
And if you are not, you can pray for help to do so.]

Through self-examination, meditation and prayer you make the quality of your life. We do have self-will and we can will ourselves to be grateful for what we have.

Q2. If you are grateful for what you have got you are never unhappy with what you have been given.
Write on this, giving three examples from your life.

The first two paragraphs on Page 98 beginning:
‘There is a direct linkage among self-examination, meditation and prayer…’

‘As we have seen, self-searching is the means by which we bring…’
These are promises that Bill is giving us.

Q3. Break down the above two paragraphs and own them for yourself.

Q4. Write the basic definition of humility:
I can’t, You can, I am going to ask You.

How would you, in your own words, explain humility?
