12 Steps and 12 Traditions
Bottom of page 100~101
1). Read over the 11th Step Prayer, and reread it again. Sit quietly and ask your Higher Power what the inner essence is that your Divine Source wants you to understand.
Glean the best from it for you and your life. Then write out the inner essence for you. Write out what you want your inner essence of your personhood to be (like you would a business statement or mission statement for your business or foundation).
2.) What is a “Channel”? Look it up. What does “Channel of Grace” mean to you?
3.) Do you want to be a channel of grace that brings love, forgiveness, harmony, truth, faith, hope, light, joy, comfort and understanding to all? Be honest with yourself.
4.) If you do want to be that channel, do you see yourself as accomplishing it? Write an example that you have seen. Could you be doing more? Brig this to Quiet Time as a request to your Higher Power.
5.) Who in your life is a channel giving you grace of love, forgiveness, harmony, truth, faith, hope, light, joy, comfort and understanding? You need to receive so as to refill your own well. Plus, other people need the joy of giving to you, so you must accept it from them.
6.) How good are you at accepting people’s gifts? Who is wanting to give you this grace? It must be two-way street.
Give + take=healthy relationship
7.) What does “Self-forgetting” mean? Really investigate it.
