The First Step and the First Tradition attempt to instill in me enough humility to allow me a chance at survival. And in the daily reflections it mentions that FULL acceptance of the First Tradition allows me to set aside personal ambitions, fears and anger when they are in conflict with the common good, thus permitting me to work with others for our mutual survival.
I also read about how the 1st tradition and 1st step allows my ego to be deflated. For me to continue to be reminded about a solution to my personal fears, anger, and the obsessive behavior I often display and find myself stuck in that particular mire -is a real AHA moment. Ever so grateful to the steps and traditions!!
