Step 3: Give Your Life to Recovery

The revised step 3 is as follows:
We decided to devote our lives toward personal experience of this something else.

Just to clarify, I don't mean that we need to quit our jobs, sell everything we have, and sit on the top of a mountain somewhere until we get it. I mean something more difficult, but at the same time more rewarding. I mean that the quest has to permeate your life. You have to have it at the back of your mind when you go to work, when you go to church, when you stand in line at the grocery store.

Different philosophers have said that the Something Else is everywhere and in everything. If that's true, there's no hard and fast dividing line between the quest and life in general. You'll study and work on yourself, but you'll also apply what you've learned in daily living (more on that later).
