What's the spiritual principle of step 3?

Is it willingness? Because I must DECIDE to turn my will and life,
And that can only be so if I'm willing to do so. Is that the spiritual principle of step 3?

Are Solitude and Isolation the same thing?

I've heard someone tell me not to isolate myself, but finding solitude is fine. This kind of made me go :shock: :?: =geek
