    Step 2 tells us that we come to believe that a power greater than ourselves can restore us to sanity. Try going to meetings with an open mind…you just might tend to believe that the same “something” that others are using to get better can help you get better too.




    No offense to anyone who believes in a higher power? (god?) but I use to be very religious…trust me it will never happen again. It’s such a silly concept, a god? Well…my mind is very open, but I believe that believing in a god is a extremly closed mind…sometimes I might believe in one when I’m on lsd but that’s about it.
    I believe many things are above me, just no mystical god-like figure. The universe is transendent to all though.



    See, in the program of NA the universe could be a higher power for you hippyfly. I personally think that’s awesome.

    A higher power doesn’t have to be “God” in the religious or “mystical” sense. That’s not what is meant by “God” at all unless an individual chooses it to be.

    The pure beauty and freedom of it is that we all have a choice. In the beginning of my sobriety, I also had a problem with the word “God.”
