This is a touchy subject, and for some of us, the debate of God/Higher Power/My God or else/My God can beat up your god/your Higher Power is not the all in one/etc. and on and on has been raging like a stormy tempest with people in our life. It is a power struggle.
Personally, when it became personal, my Higher Power, with no attachment, guilt, baggage, I owned it and it was mine, then it became a Power.
When others try to push an agenda, it usually fails.
When many see it is inside themselves, a part of themselves, personal, intrinsic, not some "out there" kinda thing, my opinion only, then it works for some of us.
I was taught later that it was mystical, unknown, unknowable, unfathomable, beyond human description, yet easily grasped by a mind willing to accept it, just open up to it and it appears, POOF! It was that simple and a lifeline, some say a silver cord, a connection was made.
Sorry to preach, it was preaching and guilt and bashing and brainwashing that got me into this mess, and letting go, opening up.
OK< the topic was, is a forum needed. I say yes, only if it is respectful. My point, proselytizing, adding religion, adding an agenda, sorry, that is what harmed me, all the "junk" attached, yet if you can do what others did for me, just open up the spot, invite Higher Power in, yes.
