Co-Creating Our Lives
Vocabulary, what is said to us, positive and negative, forms us; the negative that we repeat to ourselves deforms us. Thus, we co-create our life:
Drop good and bad – they judge and deform.
appropriate and inappropriate
healthy and unhealthy
helpful and not helpful
useful and not useful
They evaluate, inform, and transform.
Be conscious of self-talk vocabulary. Use words that name who you are and how you want to be!
Reality is what it is. Our belief about reality does not change or direct reality. There are natural laws of physical evolution, for instance, gravity. There are spiritual laws of an unfolding Universe, for instance, humility – a sense of true perspective: we are finite, not infinite.
To act contrary to these laws is to act contrary to Nature and the natural flow of Energy. This creates chaos. To choose actions that are in alignment with the Energy flow creates harmony. Our work is to become conscious of these spiritual principles and to conform – become one in the flow of Energy.
Herb K. was given the gift of freedom from alcohol February 21, 1984. As a result of the application of the Twelve Steps as contained precisely in the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous, he experienced a profound spiritual awakening in 1988. Since then he has been very involved in carrying the message of recovery through presentations, facilitating workshops, and leading retreats.
He has authored three books to help people access the instructions and confirm the actual process contained in the Big Book for experiencing a spiritual awakening: Practicing the Here and Now: Being Intentional with Step 11 (2017), Twelve-Step Guide to Using the Alcoholics Anonymous Big Book (2004) and Twelve Steps to Spiritual Awakening: Enlightenment for Everyone (2010). His books are available on Amazon and other locations.
