Step Six: Were entirely ready to have God remove all our defects of character.
I want to be ready for shortcomings to be removed, and I will do what I can do prepare. I can develop a non-judgemental aware of myself, accept what I discover, and be fully willing to change. But I lack the power to heal myself. Only my Higher Power can do that. Jan 31 Courage
Are the small temporary pleasures I get from my defects of character worth the price I am paying to keep them? Courage 160
“God make me entirely ready for the removal of my faults, that I may receive light on my problem and their true causes.” ODAT 172
Tradition Six: Our Family Groups might never endorse, finance, or lend our name to any outside enterprises, lest problems of money, property, and prestige divert us from our primary spiritual aim. Although a separate entity we should always cooperate with Alcoholics Anonymous.
“We must always remember why we are here, and never see the group to promote our pet projects, or our personal interest in outside causes. Courage 231.
If I forget my focus, I may fail to achieve my primary spiritual aim. Hope 229
