A Genuine Reliance
For just so long as we were convinced that we could live exclusively by our
own individual strength and intelligence, for just that long was a working faith
in a Higher Power impossible. This was true even when we believed that God
existed. We could actually have earnest religious beliefs which remained barren
because we were still trying to play God ourselves. As long as we placed self-
reliance first, a genuine reliance upon a Higher Power was out of the question.

- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, (Step Seven) p. 72
