Humbly asked him to remove our shortcomings.
When I was writing my defects, I would burst out laughing at times. when I would see these defects that were causing me and the people around me so much pain. These defects were so obvious they stood out like a light in the dark. I had brought on so much of my pain by my re-actions and in other ways by my lack of action.
So humility was not a case of being ridiculed. Its sense of humility “yes, I am the problem.” So all I had to do was do what my creator wanted, and that was to use what I had learnt from the first 6 steps to practice opposites, simple, practice opposites. In doing so, you are getting your shortcomings removed.
Today I know how my creator designed me. I have started to use the “user handbook,” “the maker’s instructions pamphlet.” It designed me to love other people as well as myself, to care about other people “to do unto others as you would have done unto yourself.” To be polite, gentle, caring, loving, tolerant, patient, humble, honest, courageous, gratitude and to try your best to live a blameless life. In doing so I will have peace of mind, knowing I am trying my best and that is all I can do, my best. If I do not follow how my creator designed me, then I will suffer and those around me will suffer.
