The Beanster Alcoholism (121* d) RE: Alcoholism 25 Apr 00

Thanks, Peter T., for that explanation. Abstract as it is, it made me understand more clearly the philosophy behind the "higher" or "larger" power idea. I don't know if the folks directly involved with AA are aware of this interpretation but it's too bad that this perspective is not more well known among the general public who may be seeking help with alcohol addiction and are scared off by the obvious religious implications contained in that "higher power" phrase. Maybe they should have used some phrase like "universal balance" or something...words with less baggage attached. But again, thanks--learn something new every day!
