"Working" the Stairway to Heaven

April 5th's ODAT catalyzed these questions for me and they are so timeless that they are as valid for me to day as they were when I first read them: 

Why do we use the Twelve Steps, anyways? Are they just for recovery?

Or maybe, like it has been said in Al-anon, they are a "shortcut to God."

Do you notice yourself that when you use the twelve steps as a staircase to God, humbly and consciously,  that you rediscover  "God-given abilities that [you've] allowed to lie dormant?"

  1. I think that the steps are important for me in every aspect of my life. I am so grateful for them and the traditions that help me in my relationship to others.


I welcome your thoughts. Keep me honest~
