In preparing for Step Six, “Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character,” it may be hard to believe that our defects will be removed. This pamphlet explains that we need only to be ready and provides tips on how to get there.
Becoming entirely ready is an act of faith. In Step Six, you are becoming ready to ask your Higher Power to change you, having no idea just how you will be changed or what you will be like afterward. When you can surrender to this reality, you will find new hope. Once you are entirely ready to have God remove all your defects of character, you can stop treating yourself and the people around you in destructive ways. This pamphlet outlines the process of taking Step Six, where we begin by seeing ourselves as we really are, then surrendering, and finally letting go.
