Step 7 – Review (MP3) Entry for Step 6 - I have a true foundation in the world.

Greetings All –

Review ~ all that we have covered thus far - Step 7 (MP3) [Open in Drive or copy to your Drive – Download folder or play from Drive – Step PDF also.]

IN TODAY’S TWO PRACTICE PERIODS, review all that we have covered thus far, beginning with the first step and continuing on up to include the preceding day’s step. Then consider the entire sequence of the steps together. It is very important at this juncture that you not require that you have any conclusions, but that you ask questions and realize the extent to which you need true Knowledge. If you undertake this practice today sincerely, it will be most evident that you have this great need. You are vulnerable without your assumptions, but you are also in a position to receive truth and certainty in life.

TAKE TWO PRACTICE PERIODS TODAY, 30 minutes each, to consider these things.

PRACTICE 7: Two 30-minute practice periods.

My July 2, 1999 my #1 entry went like this:

7:11 I'm 52 - since forever, I've been a stranger in a strange land. I felt I was adopted as a child. I looked for the papers in the secretary. Science fiction was of interest for a long time. I was very connected to God/Jesus through the Lutheran Church. My foundation was in spirit.

I've always been a reader. When I got into political, social science and philosophy, I questioned religion. I realized early that this was a fear enforced morality. I supported desegregation ideas and was anti-war, but not an activist. I held back from fear.

I was only an agnostic never an atheist - through M.E. (first wife) took me to be that. Once connected to the Chapel and open to the reality of channeling - my E.T. connection and interest became known to me.

Looking at the varieties of human skill and abilities, I felt we had to be coming from elsewhere - from repeat trips. As a college senior I conceived a story where the age of the soul would be a function of IQ/intelligence. Einstein, for example, must have been a very old soul.

Soul progression was also a thought. Since world population had grown - I wondered too, where all the new souls came from? There must be another source, or earth souls started as lower life forms - Hindu sys - ? and moved up. Extinction of species was needed perhaps as souls moved on to greater complexity in biology.

My goal in life has been and continues to be the integration of specialized information to see the greater whole - which is ever expanding. On the physical earth plane I test our as a specialist with intuitive thinking modes.

Where is my foundation? In spirit and service to the creation. That service is not servitude - but engagement as a co-creator at a lower magnitude.

I'm trying to understand life here - even as I live, breath, change and grow. My body moves along pushed by its DNA - which may be pushing me too.

I don't clearly understand either side/or the mufti-dimensional sides - I only trust that they are there and believe that were I traumatized, lost and not even knowing I was lost - that Spirit would seek me out - and return me.

Pretty jumbled there, covering a lot of my personal history in trying to think about my true foundation in the world.

As you do your review, think of how much better it would be to have some journal entries so you can remember what came to mind a few days ago when you did a Step. Maybe it is time to get a composition book?


Journal 2nd Time Step 6.  This is for those who have completed Steps once. You can look here, but you may be short changing your own growth. 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
