Thank you Robert! I appreciate you.
Since we start the daily 10th Step while we're still working on our 9th Step -- and if you'll notice, near the top of page 83, BB, dealing with Step 9 -- Bill writes about Step 11 stuff... and in the following pages... for Step 10, he appears to include some stuff that would seem like it should be in Step 11, and then, when we read on to the instructions for Step 11, he's back into self-examination, etceteras, like 10th Step work.
Also, on page 88, where he writes of discipline...
Then, he later went on to write the 12&12... and in Step 11 in 12&12... he talks about creative imagination and visualization as a possible suggestion for including in the practice of Step 11....
By taking those instructions, line by line, from page 83-88, BB... we can create a little self-examination test for ourselves by asking our self if we have experienced... the experience that he writes about...
And, then, use the 4th Step process for part of our daily Step 10, and the 10th Step Inventory... for another part of our daily 10th Step... and tie that all in by wrapping it up in the instructions for Step 11... and it provides a very simple, fast and workable Daily Time Management and Living Blueprint to move us from out of our holes onto Higher Ground, achieving sobriety... growing in understanding and effectiveness... and the guide to creating the Good Life that we often have only dreamed about having.
It's awesome and the results are so dynamic when it's all interwoven together and practiced on a daily basis.
I love the begining sentences in the 12&12 for Step 10... where Bill indicates that our following the instructions for Steps 4 through 9, has provided the foundation... and part of the formula... for our Daily Program.
It's amazing how it all fits together... and it keeps me amazed each time I discover something in it that I hadn't seen in the past.
It's almost like a meta-program inside the program!
