Some Spiritual Principles

The principles discussed in this book are those embodied in the Twelve Steps of recovery. Those I write about are not the only ones there are; they're the ones I have recognized and attempted to develop within myself, or live in, since I re-entered recovery in the mid-2000s. No step calls on or builds only one spiritual quality; and each quality is colored with and by the others, but all are necessary to build character, to strengthen spirituality, and to help one grow as a spiritual being.

•         Honesty, including truthfulness, integrity, candor, and fidelity.

•         Hope, including optimism, trust, and faith.

•         Acceptance, including self-acceptance.

•         Faith, including trust, confidence, conviction, reliance, open-mindedness; also freedom, commitment.

•         Courage, including bravery, heroism, guts; also honesty and humility.

•         Integrity, including truthfulness, honor, reliability, acceptance, and self-acceptance.

•         Willingness, including readiness, enthusiasm, passion, and faith.

•         Humility, including surrender, acceptance, and unassuming nature.

•         Love, including concern and caring for another's well being; compassion, kindness, and tolerance.

•         Discipline, including to bring under control; to train or develop; also forgiveness, integrity, prudence, discretion, and faith.

•         Patience/Perseverance, including endurance, steadfastness in the face of adversity, hope, humility, and fidelity ('to thine own self be true').

•         Awareness, including consciousness, attentiveness, and discipline.

•         Service, including help, assistance, benefit; also compassion, tolerance, self-sacrifice, and equality.
