In Step Two we claim that The Divine has no religion. If that is so, then what is the essence of The Divine? Step Three states that we are spiritual beings, so, is The Divine a spiritual being also? Yes. The Divine is Spirit. No body. Nothing to restrict it to this plane of existence. It is pure thought, pure love, abundant in resources and power, yet loving in every aspect of its nature.
At our highest and best, we remember that we are also spirit. Yes, we have an earthly body that limits our abilities, and while we remain in that body we are restricted by time and space, but the spirit within us is the essence of who we really are. We can transcend what seems to be our baser natures and live up to our full potential as loving, caring, trusting creations of The Divine.
When we truly recognize our spiritual natures and tap into the power of love, we will come into our strength and power, able to transform our lives first, and then the lives of the world — not by strength of force, but by the power of love. This transformation is accomplished when we decide to turn our lives over to that which is greater than we are. This turning over of our lives is a decision we make on a regular basis until the decision “sticks.” Until it is solidified in our thinking, in our hearts, and in our spirits. We are quite simply returning to Love.
