Fear is faith in negative realities.
Trust is faith in positive realities.
They are reciprocal like a teeter-totter:
To the extent I have fear, I’m not in trust.
To the extent I have trust, I’m not in fear.
Fear and trust are rooms in my house; I can occupy one or the other or live in between.
This is a conscious decision for which I am responsible; and my consciousness of that is also a teeter-totter.
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.
