Spirituality is not adopting more beliefs; it’s uncovering the best in yourself.
If you are among the addicts who want or need to reconceptualize their vision of God, the following exercise may help: Write a job description for God as you would like him or her to be. As you do this, ask yourself: “What do I want from this entity? How can I learn to trust this entity? What sort of interactive give and take am I looking for?” You might want to write this job description in the form of a want ad, perhaps something like: “Sought: A power greater than myself to help me stay sober and navigate life. Must be available 24/7/365. Must be nonjudgmental. Must care about my physical, emotional, and psychological well-being. Sense of humor a plus.”
