One Day at a Time in Al-Anon:

The final triumphant statement of spirituality which is announced in Step Twelve can come to every one of us as we live the Al-Anon way. “Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these Steps, we tried to carry this message to others, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.”

The spiritual awakening is a realization that we are not alone and helpless; we have learned certain truths which we are now able to carry to others in order to help them.

Today’s Reminder:

I will keep myself ready for the spiritual awakening which is certain to come to me when I have surrendered my will to God’s will. It will throw new light on many things. It will give me the ability to make my judgments and decisions on the spiritual level where I will be governed by God’s goodness and wisdom.

“We are asleep; we walk in darkness until we find God’s hand to lead us into His way — the way of spiritual enlightenment.”
