The 12 steps of CA (Corona-Panic Anonymous)

1) I AM POWERLESS OVER THE CORONAVIRUS – MY LIFE (AND THE WORLD) FEELS UNMANAGEABLE.

2) ONLY A POWER GREATER THAN MYSELF (OR ANY HUMAN BEING) CAN RESTORE THE INSANITY OF TODAY’S WORLD, AND MY LIFE, TO SANITY.

3) I’VE DECIDED TO PUT MY LIFE AND FATE INTO THE HANDS OF THAT ULTIMATE HIGHER POWER.

4) MADE A LIST OF THE TRAITS, ATTITUDES AND BEHAVIORS WITHIN ME THAT BLOCK ME OFF FROM CONNECTING TO THAT POWER.

5) ADMITTED TO MYSELF, TO THAT POWER AND (PREFERABLY TO ANOTHER HUMAN BEING) WHAT THOSE BLOCKAGES WITHIN ME ARE.

6) AM READY TO HAVE THE HIGHER POWER REMOVE THOSE BLOCKAGES.

7) HUMBLY ASKED THE HIGHER POWER TO DO SO.

8) MADE A LIST OF ALL THE PEOPLE I HAVE HARMED (WHICH IS A MAJOR SOURCE OF BLOCKAGE) AND BECAME WILLING TO MAKE AMENDS TO THEM ALL.

9) MADE AMENDS TO THESE PEOPLE (EXCEPT WHERE IT WOULD HARM THEM OR OTHERS).

10) REVIEW DAILY WHERE THE NEGATIVE TRAITS, ATTITUDES AND BEHAVIORS (SEE STEP 4) CROP UP, AND PROMPTLY CORRECT THEM.

11) SOUGHT THROUGH PRAYER AND MEDITATION CONSCIOUS CONTACT WITH THE ULTIMATE HIGHER POWER, ASKING TO UNDERSTAND MY TRUE DESTINY AND FOR THE POWER TO LIVE IT.

12) HAVING HAD A SPIRITUAL AWAKENING AS A RESULT OF ALL OF THE ABOVE, I SEEK TO CARRY THIS MESSAGE TO OTHERS AND LIVE THESE PRINCIPLES EVERY DAY.
