There is a Solution

There is a Solution. Almost none of us liked the self-searching, the leveling of our pride, the confession of shortcomings which the process [of recovery] requires for its successful consummation. But we saw that it really worked in others, and we had come to believe in the hopelessness and futility of life as we had been living it. . . . [Therefore] . . . there was nothing left for us but to pick up the simple kit of spiritual tools laid at our feet. . . . The great fact is just this, and nothing less: That we have had deep and effective spiritual experiences which have revolutionized our whole attitude toward life, toward our fellow and toward God’s universe. The central fact of our lives today is the absolute certainty that our Creator has entered into our hearts and lies in a way which is indeed miraculous. He has commenced to accomplish those things for us which we could never do by ourselves.
