I am Shadow and Light
By running from our shadows, we feed our inner darkness.
We reduce and eliminate our shadows by moving into and becoming light.
I am a product of Love and therefore in my very nature I am love.
When I am true to my very nature, I am love loving.
I sit in the Light becoming light.
My shadows begin to wane and then disappear.
As I become Light I am a channel of Light.
Giving light to those around me helps the shadows to wane and disappear. Being a conduit of Light allows them to become light – to become truly who they are: Love loving.
Reflections while reading Tara Brach “Radical Acceptance”
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.
