Step Six: Be entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.

In Step Six, I use love, insight, and vision to release my current identity and self-image and open myself to further growth and recovery. I remember my ideals and dreams, and I pay attention to them.

The Sixth Step is not about being controlled or coerced toward perfection, as my disease would have me believe.

Rather, I prepare to become lighter: more fully me, more fully aware and living in my heart’s desire. I envision a new self, with the intention of letting my Higher Power and my experiences bring me closer to who I really am.

While this is, at times, a gradual and contemplative process, I am also in the Sixth Step any time I approach my life with openness to what the moment may show me.

Vic 8/9/12

Show up (done) , calender, chatbox

Moved forward with willingness to be willing and being humble enough for help in chatbox.

Today, the critic in my head is ruthless with demeaning comments, I need to get out of hearing range by going to chatbox.

Thanks Moving for the starter. 

PRAYER  (for yesterday and in advance for today)

God forgive me where I have been resentful, selfish, dishonest
or afraid today. Help me to not keep anything to myself
but to discuss it all openly with another person - show
me where I owe an apology and help me make it. Help me to
be kind and loving to all people. Use me in the mainstream
of life God. Remove worry, remorse or morbid (sick) reflections
that I may be of usefulness to others. AMEN
(p. 86 BB)

Beautiful prayer, Vic.

Beautiful prayer, Vic. Smile
