Step Six Questions

Hi all- it's good to be back and feeling stronger every day. Thank you Vicky for sitting in for me - Great Job. Love to all - Dot

Step Six - Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.

1. Have I completed working the first five Steps to the best of my ability?

2. Am I willing to go back and look at them if I feel overwhelmed in working this Step?

3. What fears block me from being entirely ready?

4. How am I grateful that I now know the God of my understanding?

Hugs - Dot

hi Dot thanks . Good to know you're getting better - hope you're taking things easy at the moment then ...

in answer to those just that having done alot of step work in the beginning we usually find that it doesn't need to be so intense later on and then you're free to work on little bits at a time and they sort of present themselves to you as you go along something like that well hopefully !

hug llol Vickyr x

What blocks you -- you control.   The fears are simple to define.  The primary fears which humans can feel stem from pride and prejudice.  Vanity is a dangerous form of emotion.  Essentially it is vanity which brings us to hopelessness.  Vanity which causes us to drink, to desire, to disdain, to dislike, to complain, and such. 

Anger is a volatile emotion.  This is such that arises when you feel frustration, for example, at how slowly situations in your life of recovery develop; or the degree of your lonliness in recovery.  Because such a change of life style will always necessitate a process of isolation.  It's in these periods of recovery when fears like vanity and anger will creep into your thought life and cause disaster.  So, be careful.

Step Six

One very impotant part about these Steps is in reading them and in understanding what you are reading. All the time we have been praying for a conscience contact with GOD. SO that we can get to know him better. SO that he is a personal GOD to us.

After completing Step 5 with my Sponsor Step 6 which is a very short step in the book is also complete. But it is emotionally a wipe out after my 5th was done so an hour alone with Our Creator "GOD." On my bed in my room with insructions from my SPonsor were all that I had needed to find that SPiritual peace. Page 75 and 76. Resting in the Arms of DADDY.

WOnderful WOnderful peace
Love to you all,
