IN YOUR TWO LONGER PRACTICE PERIODS TODAY, practice letting go of fear so that you may know. Allowing your mind to be still and receptive without making demands will be a demonstration that you are trusting Knowledge. It will give you reprieve from the afflictions and the animosities of this world.With this, you will begin to see a different world.
PRACTICE 87: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly practice.
The world was not created for me, but it gave - and I was protected - but not without pain. There were generations of wisdom doing their best.
That is where I come from - and I honor that. Thirty two years later I'm in Front Royal - trying to grow and apply - remember what I learned there.
11 p.m. I honor those that have given to me - session II. In a.m. - only made it through H.S. I've 35 more years to go -
I had done other gratitude exercises in the past, having resolved many personal issues, it was easy to reel off names. The Step does not say to write out what you think in this lesson, but, because I had journaled, this just made sense. For the second session, no list.
There is no wrong way to begin this Step. You can always add people later when you think of them. No problem. It is your list. There can be pain and anger in this, of which we are warned, so don't be surprised or angry at yourself for true emotions. Keep at it. More fun ahead.
