Step Eleven

“Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood God, praying only for knowledge of God’s will for us and the power to carry that out”.

With so many reversals happening in so many lives (not the least important of which I am living), the concept of surrender and acceptance becomes unavoidable.

As even conservative life plans decompose into proverbial houses of cards and even the mightiest efforts prove inadequate, I am struck by the powerlessness and mortality of human activity.

The past few years, with their mother lode of systemic loss and suffering, have brought me back to my youthful position of wanting to turn my life and will completely over to the divine; To surrender my will to a greater will, with the realization that my perception is impaired by my very humanity.

To that end, what to do? Join an ashram, pursue education in transpersonal psychology, remain as I was?

Mantra-like, I plead for knowledge of His will and the power to carry it out.
