From Simple But Not Easy For over seventy years the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous has offered alcoholics a solution to their chronic, progressive, and fatal illness. This solution cannot be found in fighting or quitting or any other human effort. Many people abstain from alcohol for months, even years, by going to meetings, reciting the steps, and exchanging complaints about their lives with other abstinent people. For these people not drinking is their only goal. But abstinence is only the beginning of recovery. It is the Program of Action, particularly Steps 4 through 9, that brings about a spiritual awakening and recovery." This small book offers newcomers, sponsors, and even long-time members of the AA Fellowship a new tool to identify and understand the basic principles of the Big Book. Once that understanding turns to action taking the 12 Steps a spiritual awakening and true recovery can be achieved by anyone. "

Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life

Karen Armstrong believes that while compassion is intrinsic in all human beings, each of us needs to work diligently to cultivate and expand our capacity for compassion.

One of the most original thinkers on the role of religion in the modern world—author of such acclaimed books as A History of God, Islam, and Buddha—now gives us an impassioned and practical book that can help us make the world a more compassionate place. Karen Armstrong believes that while compassion is intrinsic in all human beings, each of us needs to work diligently to cultivate and expand our capacity for compassion. Here, in this straightforward, thoughtful, and thought-provoking book, she sets out a program that can lead us toward a more compassionate life. The twelve steps Armstrong suggests begin with “Learn About Compassion” and close with “Love Your Enemies.” In between, she takes up “compassion for yourself,” mindfulness, suffering, sympathetic joy, the limits of our knowledge of others, and “concern for everybody.” She suggests concrete ways of enhancing our compassion and putting it into action in our everyday lives, and provides, as well, a reading list to encourage us to “hear one another’s narratives.” Throughout, Armstrong makes clear that a compassionate life is not a matter of only heart or mind but a deliberate and often life-altering commingling of the two.

What will it take for us to stop living dreary lives? What will it take for us to fill the deep ache and longing we all have for that elusive "something more"? In a courageous departure from the traditional twelve step views of spirituality, this book takes our hungry souls on a life-changing journey to the kingdom within, laying out a path of startling new concepts to reconnect us with our own divinity. For years, Lynn Grabhorn was a passionate student of thought and our divine relation to Self. Raised in Short Hills, New Jersey, she moved to California in 1963, the same year she joined A.A. She passed away in 2004. In her own words: "Our inner beings are crying out for us to remember who and what we really are, because the call is out-big time-for us to wake up. All it takes is a deep desire, and anyone can make this journey with ease."
