From The Four Agreements. Being impeccable with your word. What if you were really impeccable with hearing and listening … being thoughtful and mindful not just when you speak, but when you’re listening to both yourself and others?
Step 11 reminds us to “improve our conscious contact”. Doing this deepens our faith in the Universe and with ourselves. This can be difficult as it requires us to sit still and listen in order to integrate this Spiritual concept into our life. Practice, it will become easier and more natural very quickly.
Think about your life with every thing in it, while watching the Universe unfold. These loving experiences come to you all the time, non-stop. Not from logical conversations, comparative analysis and mental evaluation. From living in Spirit with the guidance of Steps 3 and 11. This is Grace and you are the recipient.

If I don’t love me, no one can. If I don’t trust me, no one can. If I don’t like me, no one will, and it’s transferable to every aspect of life. Do you have this pattern in your life? If so, how were these thoughts planted or introduced?

Our best work comes from searching within, not from human analysis of our predicaments and dramas.
God is not Santa Claus. We cannot pray to God and ask for things to just show up. Praying by listening, praying by asking for (nonspecific) guidance, praying to “see from a Spiritual perspective” or praying to see as God or the Universe does, are all far more productive than asking God for “things.”
