From the March 1989 magazine.

Spell It Yourself

In my opinion, not only as a believer in a living God but as a psychiatrist, there is neither significance nor dignity for man in a materialistic, Godless world. A patient must always come to grips with his own deepest personal philosophy of life, its ultimate meaning and significance for himself, before he is whole. What that philosophy is, be he Jew, Gentile or what-have-you, is none of my business. But find it for himself he must. I have had patients of all faiths, as AA has members of all faiths. I must not determine his goal, but I must help him find his own goal, however he spells it.
