A Meditation

The first half of life is for establishing our differentiated adult self. The problem is that our lenses are distorted by childish beliefs which results in our delusional development – a false self, a mask, a persona that we think we are. And it’s a lie – we are not who we believe we are!

The second half of life is for identifying the fabricated components of our false self and dismantling them. The solution is to get adjusted lenses, to put on a new pair of glasses so that we can, with clear and accurate vision, identify the exact nature of our true self and actively co-construct it.

Thus we reveal ourselves as the image and likeness of our Creator.

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.
