THIS DAY OBSERVE YOUR WORLD, following the same practice plan as practiced the previous day. Observe your world without judgment and observe what you are doing in the world without judgment. Then feel if anything needs to be done. Again, your hourly practices take but minutes, and as you practice, they will become more swift, more keen and more effective.
WE WISH FOR YOU TO VIEW THE WORLD without judgment, for this will enable you to see the world as it really is. Do not think that you have seen the world the way it really is, for what you have seen is your judgment upon the world. The world you will see without judgment is a different world than you have ever seen before.
PRACTICE 30: Hourly practice.
Doing hourly practice takes discipline. Work at it. I still have to do so.

There are some Journal entries for this day, but they don't relate to the Step.
10:05 A.M. - Saturday, August 14 - ...
The debriefing - what do we really know. How do we know? As above, so below. As below, so above. There is macro/micro - it is always a matter of scale. Like the map problem - scale is not the only measure of accuracy.
Science is the mapping of our context. We then use our knowing to alter our environment - to build, engineer one that extends our capability.
Having a map that works reasonably well may confer power on some - but the map is not the territory, as semantics tells us.
6:30 p.m. ... Went to the Greater Community Website. There was a Mufon interview which really sets out a reasonable scenario. My mind serves the Creator. I align with the Christ Spirit. The challenge of manifesting love in the physical creation is a huge challenge. I must enhance the health of my body in order to liver stronger longer.
Mundane mind-chatter or signs of concern and even growth? Once written, thinking can be more easily evaluated - at least that's how it has tended to work for me. You may have your own way.
Journal 2nd Time Step 29. This is for those who have completed Steps once. Doing Steps with only the texts, messages and your life experience, including what you may have studied and practiced is your journey. I’m showing my first year Step comments after the Step, so as not to influence you in advance. It is a wilderness trek to be left to your own wits, but then you can also listen more closely for guides, angels and teachers, always first saying: “I surround and protect myself with the Love and the Grace of God.” Thankfully, I was taught this practice in 1989.
P.S. 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.
