How It Works
Being convinced, we were at Step Three, which is that we decided to turn our will and our life over to God
as we understood Him. Just what do we mean by that, and just what do we do?
The first requirement is that we be convinced that any life run on self-will can hardly be a success.
On that basis we are almost always in collision with something or somebody, even though our motives are good.
Most people try to live by self-propulsion. Each person is like an actor who wants to run the whole show;
is forever trying to arrange the lights, the ballet, the scenery and the rest of the players in his own way.
If his arrangements would only stay put, if only people would do as he wished, the show would be great.
Everybody, including himself, would be pleased. Life would be wonderful.
In trying to make these arrangements our actor may sometimes be quite virtuous. He may be kind, considerate, patient,
generous; even modest and self-sacrificing. On the other hand, he may be mean, egotistical, selfish and dishonest.
But, as with most humans, he is more likely to have varied traits.
