SPONSOR: Do you believe in unconditional Love?
NEWGUY: That depends.
In the first three steps, we attempt to ACCEPT.
In the remaining nine we create conditions as payment for the first three, thereby rendering all twelve steps as conditions.
These are …
THE TWELVE CONDITIONS OF UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.
We are so accustomed to the FAVOR system that we can’t even express gratitude except as a debt.
We can either Accept Love as the gift that it is or we can reject it by choosing instead to insult the Giver by insisting on making not one , but TWELVE CONDITIONS as payment.
The FOUNDER encouraged us to choose our own higher power and then used the steps to describe his own HIGHER POWER. He said these were but a suggestion, yet we treat them as THE LAW OF RECOVERY.
A handful of members are Accepting the Love and Passing it on.
LOVE IS UNCONDITIONAL. LET’S ACCEPT THE LOVE AND AGREE TO PASS IT ON AS THE GIFT THAT WAS GIVEN. LET’SACCEPT THE LOVE AND PASS IT ON.
