The Beginning of Humility
“There are few absolute inherent in the Twelve Steps. Most Steps are open to interpretation, based on the experience and outlook of the individual. “Consequently, the individual is free to start the Steps at whatever point he can, or will. God, as we understand Him, may be defined as a “Power greater…” or the Higher Power. For thousands of members, the A.A. group itself has been a “Higher Power” in the beginning. This acknowledgment is easy to make if a newcomer knows that most of the members are sober and he isn’t. “His admission is the beginning of humility – at least the newcomer is willing to disclaim that he himself is God. That’s all the start he needs. If, following this achievement, he will relax and practice as many of the Steps as he can, he is sure to grow spiritually.”
