Daily Reflections


Our Twelfth Step also says that as a result of practicing
all the Steps, we have each found something called a
spiritual awakening. . . . A.A.’s manner of making ready
to receive this gift lies in the practice of the Twelve
Steps in our program.”

I remember my sponsor’s answer when I told him that the
Steps were “suggested.” He replied that they are
“suggested” in the same way that, if you were to jump
out of a airplane with a parachute, it is “suggested”
that you pull the ripcord to save your life. He pointed
out that it was “suggested” I practice the Twelve Steps,
if I wanted to save my life. So I try to remember daily
that I have a whole program of recovery based on all
Twelve of the “suggested” Steps.
