Step 233 - I am part of a Greater Force for good in the world. Entry for Step 232 - My calling in life requires the development of others.

Greetings All –

THIS STATEMENT IS ABSOLUTELY TRUE, though from a separated point of view it may be very difficult to understand. It is not expected that you will understand today’s idea, but it is given you to experience its power and potency, for being representative of truth it can lead you to the truth, which is the experience of Knowledge. This is the greatest possibility for any idea—that it can be a doorway to Knowledge.

THIS IDEA, THEN, MUST BE APPROACHED PROPERLY. You must realize the limitations of a separated point of view and not attempt to judge the value of this day’s idea. You cannot judge it. You can only respond to it or deny it because its truth is greater than your current interpretation. Recognizing your current limitations in this regard gives you access to greatness, for without protecting that which weakens you, you may find your way to that which strengthens you and gives you purpose, meaning and direction.

YOU ARE PART OF A GREATER FORCE FOR GOOD, for this force is joined and directed by Knowledge. Knowledge here is beyond what any individual can own. Therefore, there is no “your” knowledge and “my” knowledge; there is only Knowledge. There is only your interpretation and my interpretation, and in this there can be discrepancies, but Knowledge is Knowledge. It leads people together; it takes people apart. If it is truly comprehended from stillness and objectivity, its true direction can be discerned and followed.

TAKE STRENGTH TODAY AS YOU REPEAT THIS IDEA upon the hour. Know that all of your efforts on behalf of Knowledge are supplemented by those who practice with you—those whom you can see and those whom you cannot see. In your deeper practices allow your own self-discipline, which prepares you to enter into stillness and peace, to be supplemented as well. Thus, your accomplishment today will supplement the efforts of all others who practice, those who are unlearning the false and those who are learning the true along with you.

PRACTICE 233: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly practice.

I’m not alone. We aren’t alone.

Regionswork.net > a regions network - a region=network – that is how everything works. What appears to be singular – a locality, a family, the human body is, on inspection, a network. All things network –the “net” is the thing – Greater Community network. In the great sea of humanity – individuality is the driving force – to stand out – everyone can be a Cisco router – every human brain is a Cisco router.

Everything Net

The PDC brings together the data of the region – others come to mine and refine.

Getting the region to become information rich will lead it to a better economy – this can't be done w/o educating; investing –

1:35 p.m. At the office to do timesheets before my Saturday hike. ---

5:57 p.m. @Little Bear for Practice #2. I was at work from 1 – 5:15 doing my timesheets. I'm here now. "My calling in life requires the development of others." This is true – I'm not too good at helping others develop it seems.

Others are developing, we are developing, for a flexible, dynamic, evolutionary future where in the moment, each will have to make good decisions.

P.S. At Step 233, we are into Part Two of Steps, so if you’ve found this and find some appeal in this or other Steps, you should really go to the beginning blog post. From here you learn about Steps to Knowledge and can begin it on the day that makes sense and then progress as needed. You can use the posts on this blog as a companion if it helps. They will remain in order in the archives - one per Step.

Often it takes 18 months to get through the Steps once. For this blog, the pace is one-a-day, but it really makes no difference how fast you do it, only that you begin, persist and repeat. Posts here provide a trail that may let you have a virtual companion when and if you want one. One may have to study alone, as I did in the beginning. There are other Steps students blogging their experience and you might find a person more like you as a companion, or use a number of such Steps journeys. There are options as well through the Free School of the New Message
