“… (they’ve) tapped an inner resource which they presently identify with their own conception of a Power greater than themselves.” – AA page 184
Today I have an amazing relationship with a higher power that is personal to me. But it took a long, long time for me to believe. I’m a hard headed intellectual who needs empirical evidence. One day on the radio I heard “God is a make believe friend for grown ups.” That night I wrote down the qualities I would want in a make-believe god/friend. Today my friendship with god is stronger than ever. So where is the empirical evidence? My life is way easier, I’m happier, and I feel more at peace with my higher power. I choose to believe, and as a result ILML! That’s plenty of evidence for me to keep believing.
