Action Before Belief
Continuing on with some of the theme of yesterday's blog, AA suggests that if you don't believe in this higher power stuff, then why not try the program. Do the suggested steps with the help of someone, to the best of your ability at that time. What might happen? Sobriety. A person who could not stop their addictive behavior in drink and lifestyle, begins to experience freedom from compulsion to addiction and self-centeredness. Belief will follow. They found a new power, call it what they will, or no name. This new positive energy, re-creating this person, does not need a specific name to exist. Call it "Anonymous" if you want. This is action followed by belief. It is in the Big Book. I did not make it up. Churches take note.
