A God of our own understanding
�Many of us understand God to be simply whatever force keeps us clean.�
Basic Text, p. 25

Some of us enter recovery with a working understanding of a Higher Power.  For a lot of us, however, �God� is a troublesome word.  We may doubt the existence of any sort of Power greater than ourselves.  Or we may remember uncomfortable experiences with religion and shy away from �the God stuff.�
Starting over in recovery means we can start over in our spiritual life, too.  If we�re not comfortable with what we learned when we were growing up, we can try a different approach to our spirituality.  We don�t have to understand everything all at once or find the answers to all our questions right away.  Sometimes it�s enough just to know that other NA members believe and that their belief helps keep them clean.

Just for today:  All I have to know right now about my Higher Power is that it is the Power that helps keep me clean.
