Requirements

'In the face of collapse and despair, in the face of the total failure of their human resources, they found that a new power, peace, happiness, and sense of direction flowed into them. This happened soon after they wholeheartedly met a few simple requirements.' (Page 50, Alcoholics Anonymous)

If I want the promises: power, peace, happiness, and sense of direction, I have to follow the requirements. What are they? Trust God, clean house, help others. What does wholeheartedly mean? Whenever I am tempted to engage in something other than one of these, gently and persistently draw myself back to these three.
