The Antidote to Co-Dependency
I've been reading Melody Beattie's book "Codependent's Guide to the 12 Steps." So many revelations in there. But I am having terrible struggles with the whole God concept. The 12 steps allow one to define God in whatever way makes sense to them. But then they emphasize a personal God to whom you can had over your burdens. See? That makes no sense to me. The closest I can get to a concept of God is the collective universe, all the sentient beings who have ever lived. But I seriously doubt they have a personal interest in my well-being. Nor should they. They're doing their thing, they are done with this earthly journey.
I found this image on Facebook this morning and it dovetailed perfectly with the reading I did last night. It's humorous, and absolutely spot on.
