Let Us Now Look At STEP SIX...
"We have emphasized 'Willingness' as being Indispensable. Are we now ready to Let God remove from us all the things which we have Admitted are objectionable? Can He now take them all - Every One? If we still cling to something we will not let go, we ask God to Help Us Be Willing." (Big Book Pg. 76)
When I was Drinking and in Trouble, I wanted my Higher Power To Do Everything for me.
I was willing and able To Do Nothing.
Now I realize that I have to Turn It Over to my Higher Power, but I have To Do My Part. Do I now have the 'Willingness' to do this?
TO BEGIN STEP SIX 'FIRST REVIEW' THE FOLLOWING:
1) Alcoholics Anonymous, Big Book, Chapter 6: Into Action - Page 76.
1a) Audio: 'Step 6' mp3 (14 min) listen/burn here
It Is 'STRONGLY' Suggested You 'Read And Listen' To The Above 'SEVERAL' Times
'BEFORE' Continuing This Process...
STEP 6: "Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character."
*A suggested 'Thought' to consider for Step 6 - "WILLINGNESS."
"Entire" Willingness to be rid of defects of character is a product of thorough work on Steps 4 and 5. Step 6 in the Big Book is but a few lines.

lust and anger could be removed? Did entire Willingness to proceed occur?
The 12&12 on page 40 offered a shot of reality. In it's Step 3, are the words,
"Nothing short of 'Continuous Action' upon these remaining steps as a Way of Life can bring the much-desired result."
"Progress Not Perfection" appears a timely reminder at moments of confusion and doubt
about the veracity of AA's 12 Step Process.

2. Is Will-Power and Trying Harder a part of your success in doing this Step?

anyway and get into trouble?

to be managed by them?
