In prayer for guidance, we take inventory of the obstacles within ourselves. This begins to remove these impediments to the relationship with Spirit within ourselves.
We consciously look at what we’re unconsciously looking through. Thus, we begin to objectively see the lens through which we look that has produced our subjective interpretation of reality. This results in a shift in the way we see, which changes what we see. This allows us to see reality as it is – rather than as a projection of who we are.
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.
