Step 143 - Today I will be still. Entry for Step 142 - I will be consistent today.

Greetings All –

BE STILL TODAY IN YOUR TWO MEDITATION PRACTICES so that you may receive the presence of  Knowledge within you. Take a moment of stillness in your hourly practice so that you may recognize where you are and what you are doing. In this way, you may access the greater aspect of mind so that it may serve you upon each hour so that you may carry it forth into the world. Be still today so that you may observe the world. Be still today so that you may see the world. Be still today so that you may hear the world. Carry forth your daily duties, but within yourself be still. In this way, Knowledge will present itself and then will begin to guide you as it is intended to do.

PRACTICE 143: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly practice.

Why the focus on stillness? This quote from page 127, Relationships and Higher Purpose offers perspective:

“God is still. As you become still you will experience God. As you become still you will experience your own Knowledge, which is God's Gift to you. Therefore, we teach stillness that you may know.”

S2K – “I will be consistent today.”

As the old saw goes, “That’s all (s)he wrote.”

On the Steps page, in the second sentence: “This consistency represents a Greater Power within you,” an arrow is drawn from “consistency” to the words “spiritual gyroscope,” which I wrote on the page that day. According to Wikipedia, “A gyroscope is a device for measuring or maintaining orientation, based on the principles of angular momentum.” The “Greater Power” gives the orientation we need to navigate through life.
