The feeling of belonging not only to the human race but to the everyday world!

This is the joy of the ninth step. This step helps remove threats of “going back out” and being a drinker and points the way to a more serene sobriety as it allows one to clear away the wreckage of the past and gain the joy that the present and future hold.

 I may deal with non-A.A. people “out there,” on their terms, not mine. It is a frightening but necessary action if I am to get back into life. Second, Step Nine allows me to remove threats to my sobriety by healing past relationships. Step Nine points the way to a more serene sobriety by letting me clear away past wreckage, lest it bring me down.From the book Daily Reflections
