"Life is like a
path...and we all have to walk the path...As we walk...we'll find experiences
like little scraps of paper in front of us along the way. We must pick up those
pieces of scrap paper and put them in our pocket... Then, one day, we will have
enough scraps of papers to put together and see what they say... Read the
information and take it to heart."
Uncle Frank Davis (quoting his mother) Pawnee
In our personal stories you will find a wide variation in the way each teller approaches and conceives of the Power which is greater than himself. Whether we agree with a particular approach or conception seems to make little difference. Experience has taught us that these are matters about which, for our purpose, we need not be worried. They are questions for each individual to settle for himself.

Rarely have we seen a person fail who has thoroughly followed our path...
Our stories disclose in a general way what we used to be like, what happened, and what we are like now. If you have decided you want what we have and are willing to go to any length to get it--then you are ready to take certain steps.
