Greetings All –
Step 145 - I will honor the world today. Entry for Step 144 - I will honor myself today.
Greetings All –
HONOR THE WORLD TODAY, for it is the place you have come to reclaim Knowledge and to bestow its gifts. Thus, the world in its beauty and in its tribulation provides the right environment for you to fulfill your purpose. Honor the world because God is in the world honoring the world. Honor the world because Knowledge is in the world honoring the world. Honor the world because without your judgment you will realize it is a place of grace, a place of beauty and a place that blesses you as you learn to bless it.
REPEAT YOUR LESSON UPON THE HOUR. In your two longer practice periods, experience loving the world. Allow Knowledge to give its grace. You do not have to try to be loving here, but merely to be open and to let Knowledge express its great affection.
HONOR THE WORLD TODAY so that you may be honored for being in the world, for the world honors you as you honor yourself. The world is acknowledged as you acknowledge yourself. The world needs your love and your blessings. It needs your good works as well. In this way, you are honored, for you have come here to give.
PRACTICE 145: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly practice.
Note: “Thus, the world in its beauty and in its tribulation provides the right environment for you to fulfill your purpose.” This implies we have chosen to be here. Bad news for the claim: “I didn’t ask to be born.”
Yesterday: Step 144 - I will honor myself today.
From the Journal:
8:25 A.M. Wednesday, December 8. I woke up @ 4:45 A.M. Not tired, I did my first 30 min meditation “I will honor myself today,” then went back to bed. That works OK.
How am I doing now? – Optimistic. I feel a fit in the world. GCW works. It verifies the spirit communication and sets out a reasonable scale for navigation of the universe. Neither pain nor happiness are to be judged – and that balance then leads to one’s giving/experiencing.
10:25 p.m. To be local, something must be whole. Anything regional is made up of cells of a greater scale.
The scale for Local is one at both ends; everything in-between is two or more, each of which can be a whole/local.
My scale of local/regional has a whole in it at every step.
Though limited comments, the entries suggest actual progress. You have probably had some of that, or you would not be with the Steps this long. The Steps page had some green ink – to provide emphasis to the clearly stated points in the Step.
