C: Once you believe, believing is like a domino theory. Believing has to bring about a decision, bring on a decision. A decision won't change anything, really. The decision, whatever we decide on is based on what we believe. Once we believe, we decide. Once we decide, we have to take action to carry out the decision. Once we take the action to
carry out the decision, we get results from our actions.
And once we get results from our actions, we stop believing and we begin to know. Then we have faith. From then on, we can travel on faith, but we have to begin by believing. We can see that is the simplicity of our Steps, of our program. It's based on the basic--it's the simple way we do everything. This is our Second Step, believing, come to believe. Second Step is where we get started, is to believe.
C: I don't have any chalk. You stole the chalk. Anybody got any chalk in this outfit? Oh well, we didn't want to write that on the board anyhow. (laughter)
J: Once we believe, which is the Second Step, then we make a decision, which is the Third Step. Once we make a decision, then Four, Five, Six, Seven, Eight, and Nine are the Steps of action that carry out the
decision. Once we take these Steps, then we get results, which are: the promises start coming out of the book. Once the promises are fulfilled, the Twelfth Steps says, then we know. We have faith.
