Thanks for contributing to this book project!

NA literature is written by members, for members. The source material we gather from across the Fellowship will be woven together to represent our collective experience of living by spiritual principles. Submissions are welcome in any language.
 
This collection of 13 quotations reflects input from the Fellowship and an attempt to fill some gaps. A few of these are definitely outliers, but in a book with 366 entries, a few oddballs might be fine. In fact, that's been a common sentiment in the input. Essentially:
"Some of these seem like good qualities but maybe not spiritual principles. We thought that was true for ______, but after reading the drafts, we really like it. Now we're convinced: more is better! And if we don't like one, there's always tomorrow." 
So, while we don't typically think of "wonder" or "breakfast" as spiritual principles, members suggested circulating them. If they yield interesting source material, you'll see drafts in the final batch of Review & Input drafts due out in late May, and you'll have a chance to weigh in again then.

Other spiritual principles on this list—including "safety" and "equality"—were addressed in entries on adjacent principles but seemed to warrant at least one devoted entry. Still other principles on this list have been circulated previously. We needed additional "coverage" on some Traditions, prompting us to add another quotation and entry. 
 
As always, our greatest need is for specific examples of how you've applied spiritual principles. Real scenarios about the benefits of practicing spiritual principles would be greatly appreciated. We appreciate your input in whatever format suits you. Your ideas and experience are what's important at this stage—no need to get hung up on grammar or spelling. Bullet points may be just as useful as paragraphs.

Thanks so much for offering your thoughts!
