Step 37 - There is a Way to Knowledge. Entry from Step 36 - My life is a mystery to explore.

Greetings All -

Step 37 - There is a Way to Knowledge.

HOW CAN THERE NOT BE A WAY TO KNOWLEDGE when it is your True Self? How can there not be a way for Knowledge to express itself when it is the most natural form of expression? How can there not be a way for Knowledge to guide you in relationships when Knowledge is the perfect source of all your relationships? There is a way to Knowledge. It requires skill and desire. Both will take time to develop.You must learn to value the true and not to value the false, and it takes time to learn to separate the two and to recognize them. It takes time to learn that the false does not satisfy you and that the true does satisfy you. This must be learned through trial and error and through contrast. As you approach Knowledge, your life becomes more full, more certain and more direct. As you go away from it, you reenter confusion, frustration and anger.

IN YOUR TWO PRACTICE PERIODS TODAY, which will not be meditation practices, spend at least 15 minutes thinking of all the ways to gain access to Knowledge. Write down on a piece of paper all the ways to get to Knowledge. Spend both practice periods doing this and exhaust all the possibilities that you can think of. Try to be very specific. Use your imagination, but chart out routes that appear to be quite real and meaningful to you. In this way, you will know what you think about how to find a way to Knowledge, and from this you will realize that God knows the way to Knowledge.

PRACTICE 37: Two 15-minute practice periods.

Time to use the journal.  

From the Journal:

August 21, 1999...

Checking today's S2K - the 15 min meditations focus on contacting the teachers (guides)

In ACIM one is to access Holy Spirit; in S2K it is guides who have been this way and have insight. In one of my earliest readings I was told I am with a group of four who are in cooperative study with me. 

To understand the the notion of Mystery in the Steps does take some time. Be patient.
