This is a spiritual practice. It has been given to Humanity so it might be able to respond to the growing planetary necessity for Human Unity and Cooperation. We are encouraged to undertake Steps to Knowledge. This site is a simple aid to introduce people to this practice. There is much more to learn for anyone who becomes a student. As a Steps student since June 27, 1999, I am a witness for its benefit. Tom Christoffel
Step 91 - Review Entry for Step 90 - Today I will make no assumptions.
OUR REVIEW WILL ONCE AGAIN CONCENTRATE upon the instructions and your practices for the past week. Give this time to re-experience what happened each and every day and to see this from your current experience as well. Learn how to learn. Learn about the process of learning. Do not use learning as a form of showmanship. Do not use learning to try to prove your worth to yourself. You cannot prove your worth. It is beyond your efforts to prove it. Your worth will demonstrate itself when you allow it, which you are now learning to do. Practice to practice. Some days will be easier. Some days will be harder. Some days you will want to practice. Other days you may not want to practice. Each day you practice because you are representing a Greater Will. This demonstrates consistency, which is a demonstration of power. This demonstrates a greater dedication. This gives you certainty and stability and allows you to deal compassionately with all things of lesser strength.
YOUR LONG REVIEW TODAY will be an examination of your learning process. Remember not to judge yourself so that you may learn.
8:24 A.M. Friday October 15 - a slow start. Still behind. I'll never be caught up. Some day I'll leave. Others will take over where it goes? - I don't know except the trend is to more life. My question is "Where do I fit in the world?" rather than "How does the world fit together?" When it comes to relationships, I want to learn and teach, to understand and promote that which creates and sustains value.
This is all from that day. No record of the practice about "assumptions." This is more the existential problem of the day, certainly an on-going one. The true value of Steps to Knowledge is that it does, over time, enable them to be answered. So - stick with it.
The book has an entry in blue ink - that is year two.
Again, this journey is serious work - stick with it.
