The "Varieties of Religious Experience" is the most profound series of lectures to inspire the founding fathers of what is commonly know as the 12 program towards spiritual revovery from alcohol and drugs; to include eating disorders and gambling. The highlights of the James Lectures are the key references extracted and compiled by Jim G. to assist the recovering addict towards identifying a higher power that is personal to his or her own understanding. Added to the highlights, Jim G. gives a more contemporary narration with updated referencces and a comparison to the steps of recovery and other religious and philosophical schools of reality. It also points out the personal nature of mysticism to include prayer and meditation. Included is Jims' personal theory of how our life needs to be changed from a narcissistic self-arrogance to the altruistic sacrifice in helping others achieve eternal happiness. In so doing, God's personal grace changes our fear and anxiety into the peace of serenity; whereby the tear drops leave our eyes and we can live the remainder of our journey with acceptance towards heaven on earth.
