“CONTINUE TO TAKE PERSONAL INVENTORY AND WHEN WE WERE WRONG PROMPTLY ADMITTED IT.”
- We have entered the world of the Spirit. Our next function is to grow in understanding and effectiveness. This is not an overnight matter. It should continue for a lifetime.
- Continue to watch for selfishness, dishonesty, resentment, and fear. When these crop up, we ask God at once to remove them. We discuss them with someone immediately and make amends quickly if we have harmed anyone. Then we resolutely turn our thoughts to someone we can help. Love and tolerance of others is our code.
- We are not cured of alcoholism. What we really have is a daily reprieve contingent on the maintenance of our spiritual condition. Every day is a day when we must carry the vision of God’s will into all of our activities. “How can I best serve Thee-Thy will (not mine) be done.” These are thoughts which must go with us constantly. We can exercise our will power along this line all we wish. It is the proper use of the will.
- If we have carefully followed directions, we have begun to sense the flow of His Spirit in to us. To some extent we have become God-conscious. We have begun to develop this vital sixth sense. But we must go further and that means more action.
CONTINUE TO TAKE PERSONAL INVENTORY MANY TIMES EACH DAY AND TO SET RIGHT ANY NEW MISTAKES AS WE GO ALONG (Pages 84-85).
