We take it easy; we do not struggle. Learn to lean on the God of your understanding. Write it down, let go of the burdens. Relax, knowing that nothing happens in God’s world by mistake. We can’t solve all the world’s problems alone. We have a helper now. We set aside what we can not do and let God do what He can. Then easy does it!! One foot in front of the other.
Twelve Step programs are spiritual in their design. We as Alcoholics/Addicts must turn our attention to something other than human aid and for us to let go of the controls we think we have over people, place, and things. For the most part we can pray, light candles, meditate, or go to spiritual retreats to learn how to turn it over to a Higher Power. However, in recovery we learn the power of pen to paper. Therefore, we have God Boxes. The boxes are a tool to set your prayers, goals, pain, fear, ambitions, ad infinitum. We learn to turn it over by writing it down and putting it in a box. We learn to let go and let God.
