Greetings All –
Step 324 - I will not judge another today. Entry for Step 323 - My role in the world is too important to neglect.
Greetings All –
AGAIN PRACTICE AFFIRMING THIS IDEA. Again apply it to your real experiences. Again strengthen your understanding that Knowledge is with you and does not require your judgment or evaluation.
DO NOT JUDGE ANOTHER TODAY. Learn to see. Learn to hear. Learn to look. There is not one person in the world who cannot give you something beneficial if you will not judge them. There is not one person in the world who, through their accomplishments or their errors, cannot confirm the importance of Knowledge and cannot demonstrate its need in the world. Thus, those whom you love and those whom you despise all offer gifts to you of equal value. Those who you think are virtuous and those who you think are not virtuous all offer what is essential to you. The world in truth is demonstrating everything that this preparation is providing for you, if you will but look upon the world without judgment or condemnation. To the extent that you look upon another with judgment, you will judge yourself. You do not want your judgment upon yourself, so do not judge another.
REMEMBER UPON THE HOUR. Do not neglect your practice today, for it is essential for your happiness. It is essential for the well-being and advancement of the world. In your two deeper practice periods, re-enter stillness. Come to give yourself to practice. Come to give yourself. You will feel your strength as you do this. Here the power of decision is yours to utilize. As you do so, it will become more potent and effective in dispelling everything that stands in its way. Remember you are a student of Knowledge, and students must practice to advance and to proceed. Do not judge another today and you will proceed in truth.
PRACTICE 324: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly practice.
This Step is affirming, if one is in a position to receive it as such. It ends with the promise of happiness: “Do not neglect to move towards the completion and the fulfillment of your role in the world, for as you approach this, happiness will approach you.”
I was reading and thinking in a serious way that day.
The affirmation: “I will be carrying forward with will and determination. TJC 6/6/01” is a response to the Step. The arrow to Step 323 comes from the third paragraph:
which sets it as a daily dedication. Happiness is possible – this is the path. It is work. What else is there to do, now that we know?
From the Journal:
7:44 a.m. Sunday, June 4, 2000 – On waking 6:21 a.m. cold and tired – stayed in bed – with tired musings – little energy – why so tired? My little life – what can I do with it?
– Fragments become whole – return to their wholeness with remote viewing – an encompassing theme.
– No wonder I'm tired – like Cayce
– ideas coming through out of sleep.
– human brains are too small/they are networked for power. Computer networks & technology grow by trying to mimic the brain/human neurology. Human neurology does not try to mimic computers.
Regions – zones between boundaried wholes – States created counties. For management & coordination, the State is too large, the county too small. The region is intermediate – when the State standardizes regions – then you have a building block.
VIEW 2100 – The world is heading to a single community. To be visible and a player – localities will have to band together in cooperative regions to be players, individually each is too small.
ISO standard regions
Atlas and database for regions
Regional agenda for the century.
Regions emerging –
– organizational strategies –
– regions of life
– Plan- Do – regions
– we benefit from local boundaries – regional standards are needed.
9:35 a.m. I produce lots of ideas – need to get them out for action. Take the existing local/State/Fed boundaries as given – as "local" – build continuous regions – use phone area codes, geography for RIMBY | PIMBY The Planet is my back yard. – Theory of Relativity – Any point in the center – Universe - UIMBY
CIMBY - Creation is my backyard.
Front door & backdoor the same – JANUS –
The creation is unbounded, but there are demarcations. – The Line of Demarcation set by the Pope/separating the New World claims of Portugal & Spain.

9:50 a.m. S2K – I feel like I'm back in college – Orchard St., University Club – reading, thinking, writing – receiving
– No –
must be given From Knowledge.
10:10 a.m. Reading "Honesty" in Volume II – WFTGC – [Wisdom from the Greater Community]
– "What do I know about this?"
"What should I do?
– If you asked these questions, you must be willing to have no answers.
"Silence is an appropriate answer for most of the questions that people ask because most of these questions are mindless." p.106
"The answer is a problem to solve. (Silence is often the answer) You must solve it. It could be a series of problems which you must learn to solve. Learning to solve them develops you as a person, matures your mind and gives you greater understanding. A wise answer is always a procedure of development. That is why it must be infrequent. Often people are not committed to any kind of development. They simply want new ideas to keep their minds going in to keep up their fascination."
"Therefore, true honesty brings about the ability to wait, the ability to evaluate oneself constructively, the ability to discern, the ability to not speak when it is appropriate, the ability to speak when it is appropriate, the ability to follow a Greater Power within you, the ability to abide with what is Known and the ability to avoid or step away from that which is harmful or untrue."
10:53 a.m. Sunday morning – I'm thankful to have this safe space in which to do my development.
→ Planning assumes we know, but we don't. In order to plan we must first seek to know.
11:42 a.m. My goal is to become a teacher, but that can only be achieved by being a student.
12:35 p.m. Practice was bouncing between the warm glow of stillness and the fantasy/vision of selling my role to Charlotte's region.
2:10 p.m. Even though I'm to remember the importance of my role in the world today – it is discouraging when I can't touch Cindy's laundry. Still – that gaf (I didn't hang up her pants when taking laundry out of the dryer)
The region can be a tool for every local government. It empowers.
1:17 a.m. Monday, June 5, 2000 Perpetuation requires organization. S2K says Knowledge organizes your life – I've spent part of the day organizing – still more to do… that led to the above blurb
"Honesty" from Wisdom from the Greater Community Volume II was a good resource on this day. The other books can be used effectively.
Are we making progress? Only 41 Steps to go. What kind of completion will be experienced? We’ve been though a lot this far. Let us continue.
P.S. At Step 324, we are 41 Steps from the end – Step 365. This is not the place to begin this Practice. If you’ve some interest due to this or other Steps, you should go to the beginning blog post. From here you will learn about Steps to Knowledge and can begin it on the day that makes sense; 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 post 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.
