In recovery literature we read about "god" or "higher power". Some of us may have difficulties figuring out what higher power is for us. Some of us never find out. Some of us know immediately. Here is a list of higher powers I have heard people talk about. This list is most certainly not absolute, it's just meant as inspiration and food for though. I will not be including higher powers as used by religions. If you know of an idea of a higher power, or want an explanation of a particular idea, just post it here and I'll update the list.

Here's the list:
  • Music
  • The Universe
  • A particular deceased person from the life of the fellow
  • Science
  • Life
  • Humanity
  • Good Orderly Direction
  • Factor Time
  • Energy
  • Spirit(s)
  • Love
  • Nature
  • The Light
  • The Soul
  • The Fellowship
  • Higher principles
  • Higher purpose
  • The love of my ancestors
  • Random strangers
  • My internal compass
  • Reality
  • Mother Earth / The Earth
  • A group of people who gets done together what the individual does not get done on his own.

Some of my sources of higher power:

The voice of conscience/the inner light
Wisdom and Compassion
The love of my ancestors
Recovery Literature

You have to go the way the way your blood beats:
If you don't live the only life you have,
You won't live some other life,
You just won't live any life at all.

God of my own understanding who speaks to me through the group, my sponsor, random strangers, literature, and my internal compass- if I am willing to listen.

(This is a higher power that is not used by a religion given that I am not religious but do practice a spiritual program with a spiritual concept of God and a spiritual relationship with that God, as I understand that God to be.)
