Greetings All –
Step 1 - I am without Knowledge now. (MP3) [Open in Drive or copy to your Drive – Download folder or play from Drive – Step PDF also. Also included a short introduction by Brian McGee, the student speaker of these Steps. The intent is that this series remain as a permanent resource for students of Steps to Knowledge. ]
It is important to do each Step from where you are. I'll offer my experiences from notes on the day(s) after the Steps so as not to affect anyone's experience. For a zero effect, don't even read what I post in the coming 365 days. This blog will consider the first study of Steps, the second period of study will be at From The Mystery, beginning with the entry for Step 365.
If you need the books now, epub or PDF files can be found here: http://goo.gl/RJuuGP
Using the PDF, you can print out pages as you need them, or use the software to maintain a digital copy where you can enter notes and highlight text that stands out.
Other modern methods of keeping a journal include having a document on your PC or phone to keep notes. You could send yourself an email or use the voice recorder function. It is important to capture insights and reactions because it is by this means that you can understand change. Sometimes it may just be a word or short phrase, an image or a scene.
To end this post I again offer the blessing: "May the presence of the Teachers be with you."
In the invocative language of Knowledge this blessing is: "Nasi Novare Coram" (pronounced NAH-see no-VAHR-ay co-RAHM)
The short form of Nasi Novare Coram used by students is NNC.
