Beyond Belief: Agnostic Musings for 12 Step Life: Finally, Daily Reflections for Nonbelievers, Freethinkers and Everyone

Every daily reflection in Beyond Belief starts with a quote The source may be a philosopher writer psychologist addiction recovery professional comedian historical figure or member of the Twelve Step community past or present Author Joe C invites mindful inquiry and a holistic approach to sobriety He considers stewardship of the Twelve amp Twelve community and challenges readers to reflect on their own biases and fears about change Skepticism courage and open mindedness are essential to vibrant relevant fellowships The alternative is reification rigidity and ultimately extinction Our founders didn t ask us to canonize their memory and preserve their words as the alpha and omega of recovery They conceded that they knew but a little and that more would be revealed They urged us to prepare our fellowship for tomorrow s newcomer never fearing needed change br br The recovery journey has ebbs and flows and every recovering addict can expect their values and outlook to change with time Beyond Belief doesn t treat doubt or atheism as either a handicap or a higher plane The Twelve amp Twelve community is about unity not uniformity There is room for everyone and everyone deserves to speak their truth candidly We are a mosaic not a melting pot and the voice of the nonbeliever not only has a right to be heard and respected but has much to add to the recovery conversation For days of the year Beyond Belief draws upon classic philosophy to pop culture to create a truly st century daily reflection book br br Some definitions br br Agnostic is someone who has no knowledge of or personal experience of God In Alcoholics Anonymous Appendix II on the Spiritual Experience founders described the transformation as either an educational variety or our more religious members call it God consciousness So someone who doesn t describe their personality change that was sufficient enough to recovery from addiction as God consciousness such a person could call themselves agnostic Some agnostics are seeking an understanding to the great question of the universe Is there a creator or guiding force upon which to draw upon Others are not The apathetic agnostic doesn t know and doesn t care If the ultimate answer to the mystery of the universe was definitively answered today it would not change how he or she conducted themselves tomorrow br br Apostate is someone who has rejected a religious or political view We may have rejected the formal religion of our youth for something else or nothing at all We may have gone from religious to spiritual or secular in how we define ourselves Apostasy has a special definition in Twelve amp Twelve culture Some of us wholeheartedly accepted the interfering intervening god concept as part of our Twelve Step indoctrination We faked it until we made it Maybe we made it maybe we just stayed fakers Apostasy is to say I have tried this god business but I find no connection After thoughtful consideration I respectfully reject the notion of Divine intervention The author of this book was a closet atheist and dodged god issue in meetings for years talking in abstracts and with anecdotal accounts Finally Joe C came out of the closet and admitted he believed in no god as he understood him her it or they Closet atheists will find great comfort in this book You are no longer alone br br Atheists see belief in an intervening deity as tantamount to belief in fairies unicorns Santa Claus or leprechauns There is no collective consciousness and no need to have supernatural forces fill in the blanks for the unexplained mysteries of life For an atheist faith in god would be as delusional as faith in substance to relieve her or him from reality br br Agnostic Groups Many fellowships have agnostic groups just like young people s groups women s men s or groups for the GLBT community They are groups like any other groups br br Agnostic Steps The Internet is full of great interpretations of the Twelve Steps The Twelve Steps are not sacred Adherence and conformity are not prerequisites to call yourself a member or a group Many believers and atheists dismiss the Steps all together and stay sober on fellowship and or some other form of therapy
