Exploring spirituality in the 11th Step of AA Alcoholics anonymous can be a wonderful and illuminating experience. We now have a solid frame of reference built by the previous Ten Steps of AA. Our recovery has helped us to stay sober one day at a time and has allowed us to expand our capacity for new information about ourselves, and the world around us. This open-mindedness is one of the greatest things about AA.

Continuing to do anything in our daily lives usually means getting better at it. And so it goes with Step Ten of AA Alcoholics Anonymous. Nobody ever really enjoys admitting to being wrong, it’s much easier to blame others. Admitting when we are wrong and promptly being accountable for our side of the street is absolutely necessary in order for us to maintain our spiritual progress in recovery. The best part about practicing the Tenth Step of AA in our daily lives is that the more we exercise self-discovery, honesty, humility, and reflection, the fewer apologies, and amends we have to make!...

“Every A.A. has found that he can make little headway in this new adventure of living until he first backtracks and really makes an accurate and unsparing survey of the human wreckage he has left in his wake.” Remember, you have acted with courage working all of your previous steps in AA and staying sober! With Step Eight you have the opportunity to translate your experience of courage into developing a compassionate spirit. The exact wording of step 8 is: Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all. “The readiness to take the full consequences...

Step Seven of AA’s Alcoholics Anonymous Twelve Step recovery program is about getting rid of character defects and replacing them by practicing humility and spiritual principles. Working on the seventh step requires frequent thoughtfulness and commitment to being honest, courageous, and humble. We discovered our assets and shortcomings when working on steps four and five. With Step 7 we became prepared to deal with these qualities so that in Step 7 we could be ready to act. The exact wording of step 7 is: Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings. Tonight, we talk about Step 7 3:25 To...
