Step 6 Notes

These are notes on Step 6 from various sources:

We have emphasized willingness as being indispensable. Are we now ready to let God remove from us all the things which we have admitted are objectionable? Can He now take them all, everyone? If we still cling to something we will not let go, we ask God to help us be willing. -A.A. Big Book p.76
