Greetings All –
Step 326 - The Greater Community is something I can feel but cannot understand. Entry for Step 325 - The world is emerging into the Greater Community of Worlds. Therefore, I must be attentive.
Greetings All –
HOW CAN YOU UNDERSTAND THE GREATER COMMUNITY when you can barely understand the community in which you live, let alone the nation in which you live and the world in which you live? Here you must only understand that there is a Greater Community and that it is a larger context in which life expresses itself. As humanity attempts to become one community and as you attempt to become one person instead of many people, you will realize that you emerge into the world as a larger person and the world emerges into the Greater Community as a larger community. Here all individuality seeks community, for in community it finds its true expression, its true contribution and its true role. This is as true for you as it is for the world.
YOU CAN FEEL THIS. It is so evident. You can know this, for this idea is born of Knowledge. Don’t burden yourself with trying to understand all of this, for understanding is not necessary here. Only know and feel the reality of this. As you do this, your understanding will grow naturally. It will not be born of your own fantasy or idealism, but instead will be born of Knowledge and experience. Thus, it will abide with you, serve you and make your life more real and effective.
REMEMBER THAT YOU WILL UNDERSTAND AS YOU PROCEED, for understanding is born of hindsight and true application. Have confidence, then, that your understanding will grow as your participation grows. You need not understand the universe, but you do need to experience it. You need to feel it within yourself and around you. You need to see yourself as one person, you need to see your world as one community and you need to see your universe as a Greater Community that, within a larger sphere of participation, is attempting to unify itself as well. Thus, Knowledge works in all arenas and at all levels of participation—within each person, within each community, within each world, between each world and within the universe as a whole. That is why Knowledge is so great and why, though you receive it within yourself, it is far greater than you can conceive of.
THUS IT IS THAT NOW YOU MAY EXPERIENCE the Greater Community and not separate yourself in attempting to understand it. Understanding comes through participation. Remind yourself of today’s idea upon the hour and in your two deeper practice periods, attempt once again to think actively what this lesson means. Apply it to your experience. Apply it to your perception of the world. Recognize those thoughts that are for it and those that are against it. Recognize the inspiration and hope that this gives you and recognize the anxieties that may be aroused. Take inventory of your thoughts and experiences concerning today’s idea, but do not judge it, for it emanates from Knowledge. It is meant to free you from the disability of your own imagination. It is meant to free you and the world as well.
TODAY UTILIZE YOUR MIND AND YOUR BODY to become a student of Knowledge. In this, you will learn to comprehend the meaning of yourself, your world and the Greater Community of Worlds.
PRACTICE 326: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly practice.
Yesterday: Step 325 - The world is emerging into the Greater Community of Worlds. Therefore, I must be attentive.
This Step painted a picture that was recorded on the margin of the page.
“The new Heaven & New earth” it says on the bottom. Above, the GC [Greater Community] calls to gaia /logos “come join us” and the earth responds “OK – be patient”.
The Greater Community is not the new Heaven. We’ll be given some hints as to the location of heaven in future studies.
Earth is the same, but what makes it “New” is the understanding that it is located in the Greater Community of Worlds, where cooperation exists on another level compared to what most now know. To remain free in this environment and not be managed by external forces, awareness and resolve are needed.
The journal received a lot this day.
7:15 a.m. June 6, 2000 - Practice #1 Step 325 – The world is emerging into the Greater Community of Worlds. Therefore, I must be attentive.
– Amazing – how can I learn to work in the world? In order to promote regional community I looked to GC for tools, the concept seeming scalable.
– For years I've been given ET hints personally. I've noted in channeling/messages – the mix of spiritual/physical ET communications. It is assigned to "dimensional causes" that certain physical things are not always visible.
Revisiting my life – I was into science fiction. That ended about 11th grade? – Stranger In a Strange Land – the book with the greatest impact. I went into college prep reading. [A Time magazine of 100 top books as of 1963 or so]
2001: A Space Odyssey had a big impact – Future stories – THX-1138 mostly were confined to earth. Star Trek, then Star Wars – told intergalactic – human centric – stories.
UFO's – always fascinating, but no sightings until recently [daylight disks, or so it seemed] – so – regional cooperation, I learn, is really global cooperation, and – that is intergalactic cooperation/control.
What contact might occur in my span of years? S2K says sci-fi stories are not preparation, but they prepare the world for something.
I see this now, having been given the lesson. The focus on greater spirituality did not reveal the greater physicality/community.
Minds must remain viable/flexible for new views of the world relationships.
10:30 a.m. Where am I on the planet? How can I continue to promote movement to one community? Many, many are castaways – yet the love of God is within them.
What can I do from here? How do I organize to enhance community?
My question earlier, given my team of guides/partners in study – how did I get to this point? If there's a knowledge point – why the problem in crossover?
Looking back at my investment choice last year, I wrote down two options – (1) go to cash (2) get more aggressive. The first response was fear and I went with that.--- If I keep trying and am thoughtful – rather than superstitious – all have what I need. The inexorable trend/need is to one community with diversity for all. 80/20 – [Pareto Principle]
12:50 a.m. June 7 – Back from Buffalo Gap H. S. The graduation of Sue M… – Sarah's [half] sister. There she saw Bernice's parents – her grandparents – but no big introductions were made. A good look at Americana – and a short reflection on my own graduation 36 years ago – 1964 – I had modest goals then – just to get out of Two Rivers. I got more interested in political science. College opened a broad world of ideas, most of which I've bypassed now –
Practice #2 I did in the car and throughout the day. To be attentive to the world requires remote viewing. How does the world change?
The frame of reference also expands significantly when the goal is unity in space.
As a consequence of this Step, and the other Greater Community readings, my notions of “regional cooperation” have expanded. That may not be something you were thinking about, as your career is most likely quite different. Still the power of these ideas is something to attempt to understand. Let us continue.
P.S. At Step 326, we are 45 Steps from the end – Step 365. This is not the place to begin this Practice. If you’ve some interest due to this or other Steps, you should go to the beginning blog post. From here you will learn about Steps to Knowledge and can begin it on the day that makes sense; 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 post 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.
