    I did my 5th step on Saturday. I was nervous and scared before I did it. After I did it I felt good for the rest of the day and most of Sunday but late yesterday evening I had this intense saddness come over me. Has this happened to anybody else after doing this step?

    You can’t fill up a cup that is already full. Or as one teacher said, you can’t put new wine into an old wineskin.

    In order to be filled up, you must first be emptied out. The housecleaning process is about facing and being rid of what blocks us from God.

    Steps Six and Se ven are about change and change is not based on what I’m going to get, it is based on what I’m willing to get rid of. Get rid of what is not God and God shows up.



    I have found that after spilling my guts to someone I feel remorse about telling it all-It seemed like a good idea at the time but later I ask myself why did I do that? If you had moved on to steps 6 and 7 directly after doing your 5th step you probably would not have felt badly-You would have felt a bit of peace at understanding that your higher power was taking the 5th step with you and therefore moving on to step 8 where you can take action for past wrongs-Hang in there and keep on working your steps!
