    Step Six ~ Part 2: Questions

    “Became entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.”

    1. Do I frequently sabotage my attempts to examine defects of character? so, why?

    2. Do my character defects bother me enough to want to let them go?

    3. Could I become willing to have a Higher Power control my behaviors, lovingly guide me to choose loving, life-giving behaviors? Can I imagine who I might be without the character defects that hold me back and get in my way?

    Step Six ~ Part 3: Questions

    “Became entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.”

    1. When I was younger I fantasized future goals, qualities I wanted to be mine. How close am I to realizing them? What particular defects might be preventing me from achieving my goals? While these defects may have helped me deal with intolerable past situations, they may no longer be appropriate today.

    2. Now that I am beginning to live in freedom from active alcoholism, do I start to see that I can live out my dearest dreams and receive more, much more waiting to be given to me by my Higher Power? Am I willing to trust that, just as Higher Power can and does and will relieve my alcoholism, so can Higher Power remove my character defects? Am I beginning to see the grandeur of Higher Power’s plan for my life?

    3. Do I recognize that it is in Higher Power’s time, not mine, to remove my defects? That most likely it will not happen overnight?

    4. Am I willing to do the recovery work that makes me receptive to Higher Power’s guidance?

    Step Six ~ Part 4: Questions

    “Became entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.”

    1. Am I willing to change, to be changed, the essence of step six? Am I willing not to cling to the past, not to chose past behaviors, to be instead like a pioneer, a voyager in inner space?

    2. As we move toward the end of this focus on step 6, where are we now? Are we entirely ready to have God remove all our character defects? If not, what blocks us today, right now?

    3. Do I recognise and accept the value of trying to achieve the perfection implied in this step? Of realizing God is a power greater than I am who can remove my defects each day, yet will not unless asked?
