Made a searching and fearless moral inventory

We avoid the Fourth Step. We put it off. We’re scared of what we will find inside of us. We may find out we’re mean, angry, selfish, afraid. We might see how badly we’ve acted to others, to ourselves. We have all these things inside us. We also have love, trust, faith, and hope. We love art, music, nature, or sports. We have power to heal, and we have used it too. The Fourth Step helps us to know our inner power. As we learn about our own power, we can use it carefully, on purpose, to do good.

One thought on “Made a searching and fearless moral inventory

  1. “It’s the proper use of the will”.

    To know and to do God’s will.

    Might try to use step eleven.

    As pointed out in today’s reflection,

    There’s a bit of bad and the best of us
    There is a bit of good in the worst of us
    So it hardly behooves any of us
    To criticize the rest of us.

    I’m Harry, grateful alcoholic and devoted twelve stepper.
