Step 12, says that having a spiritual awakening,we try to carry this message to others. Some ask how do we carry the message? It is a message of hope, love and comfort. Inviting someone to go to a meeting is a powerful way to carry the message. Allowing our Higher Power to guide our actions by sharing how recovery has worked in our our lives also is a powerful way to carry the message. The most powerful form of helping others comes down to helping ourselves. We cannot change others, but when we change ourselves, we may end up changing the world.
