Many parts of the reading can be interrupted in many ways.
This is why I chose my Sponsor to do All of my 5th Steps with…
I am sorry to have been part of the change in the direction of this thread, which should only be about who we choose for the 5th, not how many times we do it. But others keep pushing doing it over and over, which is not only confusing to new comers, but I believe frightening as well. Since it's scary enough to consider doing it once, without being given the impression, that I will have to be talking out my little secrets with anyone other than God, for the rest of my life.
It is a subject covered in threads here in the past, and while we may do it as many times as we wish, the book indicates it's a one time deal, and perhaps we can follow that lead in instructing new members.
On page 25 in the chapter 'There Is A Solution,' the writers go to the extent of highlighting the start of a paragraph by repeating the chapter name, using italics and saying this -
There is a solution. Almost none of us liked the self-searching, the leveling of our pride, the confession of shortcomings which the process requires for its successful consummation.
The process is consummated = complete, concluded, finished etc. and no amount of - “Many parts of the reading can be interrupted in many ways..” can change that. These writers were proud wordsmiths, and would have chosen a different word if they wanted to indicate something we might do over and over.
And the paragraph ends by stating - “We have found much of heaven and we have been rocketed into a fourth dimension of existence of which we had not even dreamed.” Steps 10, 11 & 12 will keep us there.
