The Spirituality of the 12 Steps

The 12 Step Process can be used by each of us to recognize our personal shortcomings, and consequently, develop true compassion for the flaws and failures of others. β€œAll great spirituality is about letting go in some way of pretense, pride and illusions about ourselves. Once we let go of these obstacles and blindnesses, God is everywhere; God is obvious; God is accessible; God is available. We do not get close to God by doing holy things; we get close to God by letting go of the obstacles that prevent God from entering our hearts and minds.”
