“To find water, you do not dig small pits all over the place but drill deep in one place only.” —Sri Nisargadatta Maharaja
Dig Deep in One Place begins with the last eight months of our denial, delusion, and insanity and continues with our separate childhood memories. We then combine our stories for our early life together. We separate again for our experiences as we worked the Twelve Steps, and we will reconnect for a discussion of the Traditions and Concepts of Twelve-Step fellowships.
We then share our memories of the incredible journey of the last nineteen years as we have learned more about the spiritual principles and practicing a spiritual life. We continue with a discussion of how art completes the circle of unity, recovery, and service as we stand at the portals of creation, finally ready to receive.
In conclusion we have the stories of seven people whose lives have been changed by their experience with the Twelve Steps.
We did not write Dig Deep in One Place as a substitute for the Twelve Steps, for attending fellowship meetings, or for getting a sponsor to assist in understanding the spiritual principles or service work. This is not Alcoholics Anonymous. We did write this book as a supplement to your understanding of the Twelve Steps, much like listening to a speaker meeting.
