Step 35 - Review Entry from Step 34 - I am a beginning student of Knowledge.

Greetings All -

something of The Greater Community Way of Knowledge. In two 30-minute practice periods, review your prior week’s instructions and experiences in practice. Do this with as little judgment as possible. Merely look and see what was instructed, what you did and what the result was.This objective review will give you the greatest access to insight and understanding with a minimum of pain and self-abuse.You are learning now to become objective about your life without repressing the content of your emotions. Instead of attempting to destroy one aspect of yourself, you are simply attempting to cultivate another.

THEREFORE, IN YOUR REVIEW, use this as a guidepost: “I will look, but I will not judge.” In this way, you will be able to recognize things. Remember how much easier it may be for you to have insight about another’s life and how little you may have about your own. Greater objectivity is possible with others because you are not attempting to use their life for any specific purpose and the extent to which you are, the less able you will be to understand them, their nature, their development or their destiny.Therefore, the less you attempt to use your life, the more you will be able to understand it, appreciate it and work with its intrinsic mechanism for your greater advancement.

PRACTICE 35: Two 30-minute practice periods.

Step 34 said: "greatness that waits to be discovered within you, a greatness that will give you true equality in life." This, I noted in my copy, is a "goal" and a "promise." It is something to work toward as well as a reward.  

From the Journal:

6:53 p.m. August 19 - Being here is an obvious element of my mission. That, in itself has often been difficult. I'm missing 10 to 20% of my mission -

That would mean 10-20% of my time is mis-allocated?

Being a beginner in anything is not easy. We want to get beyond that stage quickly. How hard can it be to learn this anyway?  We will find out.
