As step 10 says, "Continue to watch..."
My sponsor says get in tune with the Watcher.
Not the thinker of the thoughts, but the one behind the thinker. The one behind the thoughts.
It's what also plays a part in us becoming able to act instead of react...

If I am not my thoughts, then what am I? I am the one who has the thoughts, and is aware of them. I am the watcher. This is 'mindfulness' - read Tolle for some more good stuff like this.
AVRT has shown me how to never drink again and to never change my mind.

My experience is that so many spiritual explorers, spiritual teachers, world religions and spiritual paths line up with each other on so many principles, and that they also line up beautifully with the Big Book.
The first time I came to step 11, my sponsor said I was to set out on a journey akin to spiritual kindergarden.
As it says in the Big Book in step 11,
A Big Book that is falling apart is used by a person who isn't.
