Step 16 - Beyond my mind is Knowledge. Entry from Step 15 - I shall listen to my experience today. #S2K

Greetings All -


Step 16 - Beyond my mind is Knowledge.


BEYOND YOUR MIND IS KNOWLEDGE, the true core of your being, your True Self, not the self that you have constructed to negotiate the world, but your True Self. From this True Self come thoughts and impressions, inclinations and direction. Most of what your True Self communicates to you you cannot yet hear, but in time you will learn to hear as your mind becomes still and as you develop the necessary refinement of listening and discernment.

TODAY PRACTICE IN THREE PERIODS OF 15 MINUTES EACH. Listen more carefully than the day before. Listen for deeper inclinations. Again you must listen without judgment.You must not edit anything. You must listen deeply so that you may learn to hear.

PRACTICE 16: Three 15-minute practice periods.

Yesterday, Step 15 - I shall listen to my experience today.
Forty-five minutes is a long time to listen, if you've not done it before. There is important direction in this Step: "You are listening for something deeper than the mind, but you must go through the mind to get there." We who undertake this practice are all headed in this direction.  

From the Journal:

No notes on this exercise, but it was done at the A.R.E. in Virginia Beach, Virginia. This is where Edgar Cayce did his work and "...founded the non-profit Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.) in 1931, to explore spirituality, holistic health, intuition, dream interpretation, psychic development, reincarnation, and ancient mysteries—all subjects that frequently came up in the more than 14,000 documented psychic readings given by Cayce."

Always an interesting place. They should consider Steps to Knowledge.
