...choose to be willing

"My friend suggested what then seemed a novel idea. He said, "Why don't you choose your own conception of God?" The statement hit me hard. It melted the icy intellectual mountain in whose shadow I had lived and shivered for many years. I stood in the sunlight at last. It was only a matter of being willing to believe in a Power greater than myself. Nothing more was required of me to make my beginning."

-Alcoholics Anonymous, p.12
