Ratings and Reviews
Spiritual not religious
Whoever wrote the review on the one reading in this book which talks about atheism completely missed the point. They do not care what your higher power is as long as it works for you. The fact is if you are an addict or alcoholic like me you can not recover on your own. Hence needing a power greater than yourself. This could be your AA/NA group or whatever you want to help point your life in the right direction. Again this book absolutely does not push a certain religion. It focuses on repairing the spiritual disconnect we face with this disease. Where our actions and behaviors don’t line up with our morals and values.
Not affiliated with AA, extremely christian reflections
I would encourage anyone to explore other apps. The reflections seem highly subjective. I am tolerant and accepting of others beliefs, but to scorn actual modern theory and scientific knowledge is troublesome. Especially when most of us are trying to live a more truthful life. And struggle with a concept of a power greater than ourselves. Below is an actual “reflection” from the daily reflections:
“Some people find it hard to believe in a Power greater than themselves. But not to believe in such a Power forces us to atheism. It has been said that atheism is blind faith in the strange proposition that this universe originated in a cipher and aimlessly rushes nowhere. That’s practically impossible to believe.”

Fantastic mobile version
Naturally, I love the instant access. What addict wouldn't? Sometime I get obsessed by my phone gadgets, but this gives me a choice to get some reading and meditation in when I'd otherwise just distract myself. I also share readings easily with my family on devices, because let's face it, they come out at family meals and such. Offering a recovery alternative in a sea of mindless apps and business that now follows us wherever we go.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
