We will read and discuss the end of the 11th Principle which is "We seek through prayer, meditation and studying God’s Way, to improve our conscious contact with God, and to improve our love and respect of God, praying for the power to carry God’s Will out in our lives." The 12th Principle is, "Having increased our level of faith and God-consciousness, as a result of applying these principles, we are carrying this message to humanity and we begin practicing these principles in all our affairs."  - This discussion will be taken from my book Reconnected-How To Be A Mentor To Your Child-Self.

The Twelve Steps of Addiction associated with the Alcoholics Anonymous organization have some good points that need to be recognized when we fall into faulty behavior. Even though the Twelve Steps and my Twelve Principles were written with alcoholism and drug addiction in mind, the program can be used for other character defects such as - Anger, Abuse, Compulsive disorders, Overeating, Gambling, Sexual, and Controlling issues.  When accepting a new life for yourself and realizing that you have to first forgive yourself and others, just saying the words alone may not be good enough to internalize real change. This is why following a program methodically with a solid commitment, and demonstrating the new you by being the example of what you are now believing, you can have more reassurance of a new path for yourself.
