“Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.” – AA Big Book
I’m a rebel – and an editor by trade. I’ve always felt that the language in step two could be improved. So get ready. Are you sitting down? Here is my suggestion for the new, improved wording of step two:
“Came to believe that connecting to our higher power could restore our peace of mind.”
Of course, I can’t rewrite the step to my own liking, but I can take what I like and leave the rest. Today by working step two and tapping into my higher power, I’ll get peace of mind and ILML!
Interesting. My sponsor encouraged us to interpret step 2 as us coming to believe in the Power greater than ourselves within the support groups that help us to understand the sanity of recovery.
I like that too!
