 1937 writing the book on Alcoholics Annonymous (until 1939) in order to standardize the program. Includes "the Spiritual Experience" - two stages of 1) the education and 2) the bright light experience. ACIM: changing perception from fear to love.  We all started the same (as Love) and then we lose Being and move into a fear-based mind.  Reestablishing the Being is what both "the steps" and forgiveness is about. AA says the root of the Character Defects and Short Comings is Fear.

 Continue with the Spiritual Experience. Reference to quotes by Carl Jung referring to alcholics. Reality Management Wake-up sheets on www.whyagain.org will give you the Spiritual Experience.  Wake us up from carbon-based memory. Dr. Andracki from Pahrump, NV gives input from his experience from both working with people with addictions and also through the forgiveness work (he and his wife Claudia have a weekly support group). Support is a big piece of the process. Takes a community to walk from the addicted mind to the higher mind. Dr. Hayes offers two support groups every week and gives input on his experience within himself and working with clients and those in his support groups.

 People often come and go out of the program.  Alergy to alcohol.  Motivation is often pain, found at "the bottom." Responsibility for "the inventory."  Step 1 recognize there is a problem (I can't drink), Step 2 is faith in a power greater than ourselves that can restore us to ourselves, there is hope and we decide to do it different. Step 3 is a commitment to finish the rest of the steps and submitting daily.

 Annonymous systems (whether AA, NA, OA, etc) developed to assist in changing the computations made and deconstructing the result is also called forgiveness. Reality Management Wake-up sheet is an inventory process similar to what is done in AA. Inventory Process in AA addresses resentment, fear, sex conduct and harm done to others.  Columns on each include naming the resentment, prayer, why angry, and then what part of self is threatened. Self-esteem, pride, emotional security, finances, ambitions, personal relations and sex relations.  Premise to be God-centered and not impacted by outside.  Examine inside instead of projecting on "them." Step 4 recognize faults (errors in thoughts) and writing down our thinking (the inventory), Step 5 admit wrongs to God, ourselves and another human being and then Step 6 & 7 go together first "become willing to let go" and "then do with assistance of higher power"

 Gail shares her "high" at the beginning of last week's discussions and then the "low" that came.  michael makes reference to the movie "The Letters" about Mother Teresa and her healing crisis of depression and aloneness.  Dr. Hayes reminds us we can't "storm the gates" to experience the level of energy we are designed to live in if we are not vital enough. It is a process. Gail shared how she had spiritual gurus and when they passed she held judgement towards their not rising above it but now she understands.  michael offered when one gets vital enough they can no longer "hide" that pain that may have been there for generations.  michael offered that "Addiction is the compulsive use of any person, place, substance or activity to 1) not listen to or follow our higher guidance or 2) to anesthetize pain."  Back to steps, shared Step 7 prayer requesting of the Creator to remove the blockages and grant the strength to do his bidding. Step 8 & 9 go together first "willing to" and "then do" - willingness is the cosmic grease in our forgiveness work.  Make a list of those harmed (refer to Step 4) and make ammends to them all. Recognize from forgiveness work that holding-on harms ourself not "them." Amend means to mend - it changes it to make it stronger.  Step 1 through 8 makes 9 possible.  Step 10 continue to take inventory and responsibility for mistakes and resolution of issues. Step 11 Stay in conscious contact with the higher power. Step 12 Have a Spiritual Awakening, Carry the Message to Others and to Share with Others.
