A Meditation

Embrace your brokenness. Weep for your hurt. Grieve your wounds, missed opportunities, your deficiencies, your limitations; your distortions about yourself and others.

Accept that unawareness is the source of our problems. Sometimes unwillingness is the source; sometimes failure to take action is the source of our troubles.

Embrace your unawareness
Embrace your unwillingness
Embrace your failure to take action.

Ask the Wisdom Spirit to open your heart to accept yourself as you are—in all your brokenness; in all your illusions and delusions.

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.
