Spiritual Twelve Steps Addiction to Fear, Separation, Knowing and Control

Step 1
We admitted we were powerless over our addiction to thoughts, judgments, opinions, beliefs, fears and feelings, to our desire to know, and to our desire to control existence, all of which we believed was the truth of our self, others, and the world. We recognized that all of it was totally insane, and that for as long as we identified with such efforts and beliefs our life would be experienced as hell.

Step 2
We came to know that a Power Greater than our self could restore us to sanity.

Step 3
We made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care and guidance of God as we understood God.

Step 4
We made a searching, fearless and conscious inventory of the insane and mistaken beliefs we were holding as the false truth of our self, others and the world.

Step 5
We admitted to God, to our self and to another human being the exact nature of all these insane and mistaken beliefs we were holding.

Step 6
We became entirely ready to surrender all of it and allow God to correct and heal our mistakes.

Step 7
We humbly asked God to help us forgive and release all mistaken beliefs in separation, levels, differences and degrees.

Step 8
We opened our hearts to all the beloveds we had ever held mistaken beliefs about, and became willing to remember the Truth that all beloveds ARE the Pure Innocence of God.

Step 9
We engaged through the heart of Love directly with such beloveds wherever possible, except when to do so might cause further alienation, asking for guidance from God to show us what is most helpful.

Step 10
We continued to engage, with deep attention, honesty and presence, any beliefs that remained active in our relationships with others and our self, and whenever we were mistaken we promptly surrendered into forgiveness, turning all of it over to God.

Step 11
We sought through prayer, meditation and presence to improve our conscious connection to God as we understood God, asking only for knowledge of God’s will for us, and for the intention, strength and courage to surrender each moment and every thought into the Hands of God.

Step 12
Because of our spiritual healing we vowed to serve only Love, knowing that Love is the Truth of our Self, all beloveds, all sentient beings, and all of Existence.
