I dip into this AA World Services publication daily. I find it best to read one story at a sitting and reflect on the comments and experience of the recovering person -- most of the short reflections are peoples' spiritual experiences in recovery and they range from the "bolt of lightening" to the slow emergence of everyday spirituality. Keep it with your morning or evening meditation book(s) and dip into it. You'll "keep coming back."

I love this book. I'm a twelve-stepper who came to the program from a Christian fundamantalist childhood by way of a period recovering from that.

One thing I came to believe from reading this book was that a higher power is not comprehensible by me or anyone else living or dead. Many traditions have been established that attempt to essentialize something greater than the individual in ways that suit their own needs.

I'm fortnuate enough to be very well educated. I'm not into fairy tales. I do, however, experience many things about life that I cannot explain. This book helped me to understand that whatever shorthand various humans have assigned to the phenomena of life and their experiences is just that. Some power greater than myself, however, is a simple concept.

(I'm a literary sort and rate this book within the context of recovery literature and books that have made an impact on me. The prose is not where it's at with this one.)

Last year when I was in a treatment center called Timberline Knolls, I was introduced to the 12 Steps and DBT principles. I've taken both with me back into the "real world" and have used them to stay on track with my recovery. One of the things I struggled with a lot was defining the difference between spirituality and religion. I was raised Catholic and knew I didn't want to be associated with that anymore. When searching for my Higher Power in the 12 Steps, I knew that for me that would be God, but I didn't know how to define that relationship without getting another man-made religion involved. I talked a lot at TK about the concept of spirituality with a sponsor and some of the other employees there and was happy to learn that spirituality doesn't necessarily mean that you don't believe in God, it's that you're leaving behind the regulations of a church and defining that relationship yourself. This book helped to expand on that for me and provided some deeper insight to it. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is searching to find that relationship with their Higher Power, whether it's God or something else, because the presentation is clear and informative. It's very short and an easy read.

Great companion piece to go along with the Big book and the step book. Other people's perspectives and what they've been through.
