Greetings All –
Step 297 - Novre Novre Comey Na Vera Te Novre…speaks of the power of stillness Entry for Step 296 - Nasi Novare Coram
Greetings All –
TODAY’S INVOCATION SPEAKS OF THE POWER OF STILLNESS within your mind and the power that the stillness within your mind will have within the world. Allow your invocation to be recited upon the hour, with great reverence. Allow the mystery of your life now to unfold before you so that you may behold it and carry it with you in your adventure in the world.
IN YOUR TWO DEEPER PRACTICE PERIODS repeat today’s invocation and once again enter the depth of stillness, giving yourself completely to your practice. Upon completion of your practice, repeat today’s idea once again. Allow yourself to feel the presence that is with you as you do this, for your Ancient Home abides with you as you abide within the world. The ancient memory of your Home and the memory of all true relationships that you have reclaimed thus far in your entire evolution are thus remembered with today’s idea. For in stillness all things can be known, and all things that are known will reveal themselves to you.
PRACTICE 297: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly practice.
Yesterday: Step 296 - Nasi Novare Coram
Nasi Novare Coram is the first phrase of Invocative Language we learn. The link goes to the New Message Wiki which provides an overview and explanation of this and other phrases, many of which will be introduced in this series of Steps.
The text for Step 296 says these words: “are an invocation for Knowledge, born of an ancient language that has not originated in any world.” This may take some time to wrap your brain around, but it does make sense from the greater community perspective and the greater spiritual reality the New Message reveals.
The journal entries don’t include anything specific to the Step, but are again a reflection of working through issues, now assisted by the Steps perspective.
6:20 a.m. Monday – May 8, 2000 – On waking – I need to go slower – RI – etc. – trying to move too fast – insufficient Knowledge – cancel Houston?
Creation is far greater and one can fathom – more Awe required.
8:02 a.m. Getting ready for work – my mundane job – my view of the PDC has not changed since 1983 – I've made it work as a communication/information hub – The land is still being wasted –
10:49 p.m. At the trail for practice #2 – long few minutes with Cindy. Why are my relationships so full of error? What lessons did I miss? –
12 a.m. The world is confused – how can it understand the simple elegance of regions?
Earth under "New Management" - a Greater Community solution perhaps. Points off for art work.
This does not seem to be a complex Step, but one learns that it has great depth and long term value: “The presence of the Teachers of God is with me.” Let us continue, now more aware of the presence of the Teachers of God.
Nasi Novare Coram
P.S. At Step 297, we are into Part Two of Steps, so if you’ve found this and find some appeal in this or other Steps, you should really go to the beginning blog post. From here you learn about Steps to Knowledge and can begin it on the day that makes sense and then progress as needed. You can use the posts on this blog as a companion if it helps. They will remain in order in the archives - one per Step.
Often it takes 18 months to get through the Steps once. For this blog, the pace is one-a-day, but it really makes no difference how fast you do it, only that you begin, persist and repeat. Posts here provide a trail that may let you have a virtual companion when and if you want one. One may have to study alone, as I did in the beginning. There are other Steps students blogging their experience and you might find a person more like you as a companion, or use a number of such Steps journeys. There are options as well through the Free School of the New Message.
