Step 12: Having had a spiritual experience, as a result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to others, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

This step brings us to the end of the begginning of the cycle...And you say, huh?
Yes, once we reach this stage, we then, with the help of our Higher Power, know and underestand that a life lived in accordance with spiritual principles is a life second to none, and we only desire that others that have had rough situations perhaps similar to ours, perhaps different, will find the same strenght, power, help and understanding that we did by taking these steps...
Now, guess what, yes, we need to go back and continue to work the work we began when we took step one...
These then are in very general terms, the steps that will help you and me to land a successful career, change jobs, improve our job circumstances or perhaps excel at whatever it is we were meant to excel at.
Thanks for reading, and as stated before, stop by back as I will revisit the steps and edit or add as time goes on...
Peace and enjoy success! One day at a time... Cool

The idea behind the Twelfth step is to carry the message to those that still are in need of it...Does that mean that I have it all licked now? Well, I suspect you already know the answer to my question....

The key is in the practice of all of the twelve steps as in picturing a wheel that has twelve anchors, from its center, to its perimeter...The twelfth anchor is nothing more, nothing less than the beginning of the first step...
When I am aware that I have just arrived to the place where I started, then I have a new understanding of life and living. Then I have a chance at being liberated, to use a Buddhist term, liberated from my own bullshit, to use my term now, and that of others...

Then I understand that I am just one among many, that, I have lots more to learn...But I also undertand that, even thought I am one, that I have become One with my Higher Power, as a result of having worked these steps...

I will also undertand that I will need to reunite myself with humility, and empty my cup so I can fill it again...and again...

Here is a verse from the Dhammapada, that illustrates in great detail what I am trying to convey here...

Quote:
Verse 85. A Few Reach The Other Shore
Among folk they are few
who go to the Further Shore,
most among humanity
scurry on this hither shore.

Explanation: Of those who wish to cross over to the other side only a handful are successful. Those others who are left behind keep running along this shore. Those masses who have not been able to reach liberation continue to be caught up in Samsara.
Treasury of Truth
