My Higher Power/Great Spirit

Part 3 of 6 in the series My Beliefs

Higher Power is a term coined in the 1930s in Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and is used in other twelve-step programs. Also referred to as a power greater than ourselves and is frequently abbreviated to HP. The term refers to a supreme being,power, force or deity, or the concept of God.

This IQS is about your Higher Power or God of your understanding, and it starts with looking at beliefs about a universal life force.

This simple selection can provide inner challenges, for example, if one holds the view that the Higher Power in your life is the energy of Love present in the Universe, then it is inconsistent to hold that such HP or God of Love wishes to inflict harm or suffering.
