Greetings All –
Step 142 - I will be consistent today. Entry for Step 141 - I will be confident this day.
Greetings All –
PRACTICE CONSISTENTLY TODAY regardless of what is occurring within you or without. This consistency represents a Greater Power within you. This consistency will give you certainty and stability in the face of all disturbances, in the face of all external events and in the face of all emotional states within you. This consistency will stabilize and balance you and in time will bring everything into right order within you. You practice consistency so that you may learn it and experience it. As you do this, it will bestow upon you the empowerment that you will need to be a contributor in this world.
THEREFORE, TODAY PRACTICE CONSISTENTLY. Practice upon the hour, reminding yourself to be consistent. In your two meditations, practice keeping your mind steady and focused, allowing it to settle into itself so that it may experience its own nature. Do not repress what is occurring within you. Do not control what is occurring without. Simply maintain consistency, and all things will find a right balance and relationship to this. Thus, you are bringing forth Knowledge into the world, for Knowledge is entirely consistent. This will render you a person of great presence and power. Others will come to experience your consistency in time as it is more fully received by you and more fully developed. They will find refuge in your consistency, and this will remind them of their purpose as well, which waits to be discovered.
PRACTICE 142: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly practice.
Note: “You practice consistency so that you may learn it and experience it. As you do this, it will bestow upon you the empowerment that you will need to be a contributor in this world.”
Yesterday: Step 141 - I will be confident this day.
From the Journal:
8:58 A.M. Sunday, Dec 5 –
→ Regions – have the potential to be networked – they are local networks – conscious or not – which can be networked. It takes a broader vision.
Practice first – (practice continuously) –
The sky is blue, the sun shines brightly – it is Sunday – why must I go to the office?
Somehow I’ve got to simplify the work/my life in order to practice. I get ideas – I want to bring them through and make them public.
Organization…the key to manifestation. We already sit upon/co-exist with eons worth of organization which the spiritual and physical have given us.
Earth is a good place to experience.
GCW-I – 22 – escaping suffering
Things making me unhappy:
1. Don’t have the staff I need at PDC.
2. Training takes a long time.
3. I don’t have the right motivation/discipline/time to write.
4. The fear that drove my stock market decisions is making me unhappy.
5. I still don’t have a system for ordering info & resources.
Daily/hourly/moment to moment checkup
→How am I doing? Really?
At 11:45 A.M. → I’m pruning away the unnecessary and focusing. I’m learning more about relationships and acting even more to encourage all other children of God.
→ the goal of life is to find real work → My book idea – find the book that hasn’t been written & write it.
3:30 p.m. Just getting to my first practice. I’m at work. …
11:27 p.m. 2nd meditation of the day. “I will be confident this day.” – Why not?
Here, the narrative continues. Some insight, plus a burden of idealism, one I felt then, but did not understand as a burden. Ultimately it gets resolved. Your journal entries may consider greater or lesser burdens on any given day. Empowerment is promised in Step 142. Let’s work towards that.
