Spirituality is not adopting more beliefs, it’s uncovering the best in yourself.
If you are among the addicts who wants/needs to re-conceptualize your 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 out 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. Must be nonjudgmental. Must care about my physical, emotional, and psychological wellbeing. Sense of humor a plus.”
Just for Today
I will write a want ad for my Higher Power.
