    For Anyone Struggling with a "Higher Power"

    Many people enter 12 Step programs reluctantly and one of the things many of them struggle with is "The God Thing." The feeling that the 12 Step process is "too religious." Well, if you are wrestling with trying to find a higher power that works for you, I highly recommend that you read this book. Kevin comes at recovery from a Buddhist perspective, but you certainly don't have to be a Buddhist to get a tremendous amount of guidance and inspiration from this read. He offers a number of things that can be used as a higher power such as wisdom or love or mindfulness and includes such Buddhist concepts as Karma or the Eightfold Path. But whether you are Buddhist or not, I guarantee that if you try to follow these ways of living you will definitely be working the steps. He offers a number of exercises that you can do on your own and gives some very practical advice on meditation.
    Another aspect that I found extremely helpful is that he devotes a whole section of the book on each of the 12 Steps (numbers 2,3,5,6,7,and 11) that mention the word "God." He presents ways of looking at these steps that take any religiosity out of them and yet strongly maintains the inherent spirituality that is there.
