As I continued to go to meetings and work the Steps,
something began to happen to me. I felt confused because I
wasn't sure what it was that I was feeling, and then I realized
I was experiencing serenity. It was a good feeling, but where
had it come from? Then I realized it had come". . . . As the
result of these steps." The program may not always be easy
to practice, but I had to acknowledge that my serenity had
come to me after working the Steps. As I work the Steps in
everything I do, practicing these principles in all my affairs,
now I find that I am awake to God, to others, and to myself.
The spiritual awakening I have enjoyed as the result of working
the Steps is the awareness that I am no longer alone.
