For most of us, finding God and surrendering to God’s will is about reclaiming the truest parts of 

ourselves—a humbling journey that often drops us to our knees.  And, according to many great 

teachers, down on our knees is a good place to start a spiritual journey.   

One of these teachers is Benedict of Nursia, a monk who lived in the fifth century and who 

developed “rules” for living a day-to-day spirituality with others.  These rules contain 12 Steps 

of Humility, which parallel Bill W’s 12 Steps in AA.  

Benedict (like Bill W) realized we must understand our dependence on God before being 

restored to sanity.  “We are like a child on its mother’s lap,” Benedict writes, “cut off from 

nourishment, helpless, left without the resources we need to grow in the spirit of God.” 

Stephen Lander—who grew up in the Episcopal Church, drifted away, studied many of the 

spiritual traditions, became a therapist, returned to his Episcopal roots and was ordained a priest  

??? years ago—believes Benedict’s 12 Steps in Humility reinforce the 12 Steps of AA and 

restate the same life-changing principles in new ways. 

“Both are steps to freedom,” Lander says, “freedom from self-centeredness and freedom from 

looking outside ourselves for what we think we need to be happy.  They help us connect with our 

divinity.   They show us how to befriend our true selves and to tap into our own inner resources.” 

One inner resource, he says, is our sense of humility.  “As we progress on a spiritual path, we 

come to distrust the idea that our will power can make things happen,” Lander explains.  

“Benedict, for example, wants us to see that our will is a reflection of our own selfish nature and 

gives us false ideas about what makes us happy.” 

Benedict, he adds, was all about progress and not perfection.
