From Bill W. in the Grapevine, 1962:

“I was the recipient of a tremendous mystic experience of ‘illumination,’ and at first it was very natural for me to feel that this experience staked me out as somebody very special.

But as I now look back upon this tremendous event, I can only feel very grateful.  It now seems clear that the only special features of my experience were its suddenness and the overwhelming and immediate conviction that it carried.

In all other respects, however, I am sure that my own experience was essentially like that received by any A.A. member who has strenuously practiced our recovery program.  Surely, the grace he receives is also of God; the only difference is that he becomes aware of his gift more gradually. “
