A strange but interesting approach to spirituality.

Gibbs Williams, a Freudian psychotherapist asks why some agnostics cannot make progress in Alcoholics Anonymous in spite of an "obsession" with spirituality.  He concludes that agnostics need to view recovery as a psychological process rather than a spiritual one.  However, he also suggests that they need to get rid of a "negative attitude toward negativity" which pushes all kinds of interesting buttons for me.  There is not much here, but enough that I am going to keep referring back to it.
