Intro

 

The Ninth Step Promises Fulfilled

I was painstaking about this phase of my development (finally), and I was amazed.

I now know a new freedom and a new happiness.

I do not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it.

I now comprehend the word serenity and know peace.

I went very far down the scale, but now I see how my experiences can benefit others.

That feeling of uselessness and self pity disappeared.

I lost interest in selfish things and gained interest in my fellows.

Self-seeking slipped away.

My whole attitude and outlook upon life changed!

Fear of people and of economic insecurity left me.

I intuitively know how to handle situations which used to baffle me.

I realize that God is doing for us what we could not do for ourselves.

Were these extravagant promises? It seemed like it at the time. But they have been fulfilled among us-sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. They will always materialize if we work for them.

    I took some "literary license" here, but thought it might be interesting to see what we read at every meeting stated in a bit different light.
