A Meditation

What if I have been given six months to live—no doubt—dead in six months.
How would I spend these last six months?
Would I adjust my life? How?
Would I continue working?
Would I travel?
Who would I tell?
Are there activities I’ve avoided or left undone that I would now engage in or finish?
Is there some project unfinished I’d like to complete?
Is there a relationship that needs to be healed?
Are there people in my life that need to be talked to? Are there things I need to say?
What are my thoughts, real beliefs on the meaning of life?
… the meaning of death?
… the world beyond death?
What is next?
Where am I going?
What’s the point?
What spiritual preparations would I make?

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.
