•There will be No Soul Work for the next three weeks: Th Dec. 19/ Dec. 26/ Jan. 2, 2014
•Therefore, during this time, Stephanie requests we meet with our buddies & share everything we’ve gone through that’s made a change in us. If we haven’t experienced any changes, then maybe This group is not for us. Stephanie is Not pushing anyone away. She really JUST WANTS what’s Best for Us.
•During these three weeks do not rest on your laurels. Rather:
-Beef up your QT with your HP
– Go through all your Soul Work until today and bring it to your buddy, what you’ve learned about:
(a) the God of Your understanding
•Pamela will do the post-conference the second Half of the workshop on: Dec. 26, ’13.
Pamela won’t be there on Jan. 2, ’14 due to job commitment.
• Says Stephanie: As a group, We’re doing a dig through this BB. That is your vehicle for digging/ going through your Self.
Take your name & write:
This BB STEP STUDY__________101 & fill in your OWN NAME in the blank.
•Regarding the system of buddies & buddy groups:
-Write for 1/2 hour
-Then read every word to your buddy- but THAT’s ALL!
-Your buddy/ buddy group needs the reinforcement that you’re doing the Work and you need the reinforcement that she’s doing the work.
-Cross-talk will just kill the buddy relationship; Stephanie knows from 13 years of experience!
-Can you call your buddy afterwards/ separately to relate personally? Of course absolutely! It’s all about relationships.
•In next three weeks Stephanie will be doing:
(A) the ‘Spiritual Experience’ (at the back of the BB p. 567-8 Ch. II)
(B) a Guided QT– new & different from what’s already on the website
AA 12’&12 p. 28 para 1: “Consider next the plight of those who once had faith, but have lost it. …..” until page 28 end of paragraph 3: “He is like the bewildered one.”
Q1) Right now- where Are you:
(a) Did you have a faith & then regret it? OR
(b) Did you not have a faith at all?
Q2) Is God supposed to prove to you that He ‘Works’ ? Is God supposed to prove to you how He works?
Q3) How are you going to find your HP?
The rooms/meetings tell us that Sobriety is the Only thing that matters.
Says Stephanie: “That’s a lie.” That’s just Another addiction–to staying sober. The real ‘only thing that Matters’ is God and our relationship to/with Him.”
And that’s why Stephanie is all about the Big Book process and her only message is God and her only agenda is for us to get a HP, so that we can get recovery and have a spiritual awakening. That’s when you see what a mess you are and then go to a HP. Like a drowning person to a life-preserver.
