Greetings All –

Step 39 - The power of God is with me. (MP3)  [Open in Drive or copy to your Drive – Download folder or play from Drive – Step PDF also.]

THE POWER OF GOD IS WITH YOU. It is within your Knowledge. Learn, then, to reclaim your Knowledge, and you will learn to reclaim the power that God has given you, and you will reclaim your power as well, for your power will be necessary for you to approach God’s power. Thus, all that is genuinely powerful and all that which is genuinely good will be affirmed within you and within God. Let this day, then, be a day given to experiencing this presence and this power in your life. You need not imagine God in fantasy. You need not have pictures or images to reinforce your understanding or belief. You need only utilize the practices that are given here.

IN YOUR TWO DEEP MEDITATION PRACTICES OF 30 MINUTES EACH, once again enter into stillness and allow yourself to feel the power of God. Utilize your own power to direct your mind, and do not let doubts or fears dissuade you. The power of God represents the mystery of your life, for it represents the power that you have brought with you from God to be utilized properly in the world according to the Greater Plan. Allow yourself, then, to enter into practice with dedication, with simplicity and with humility so that you may feel the power of God.

PRACTICE 39: Two 30-minute practice periods.

From the journal:

August 23, 1999 ...
6:11 p.m. S2K - Step 38 "In your brief span of time in the world, how can you accomplish all of these (every single possibility) and still maintain your vitality?

S2K says: "Take faith today in knowing that God knows the way to Knowledge, and you need only follow the way that is being given. In this way, knowledge simply emerges in you because it is acknowledged, for only God knows Knowledge in you, and only God knows Knowledge in you, and only Knowledge in you knows God. As the two resonate together, they both become more apparent. In this, you find peace. [yes a phrase is repeated, as it was written in the Journal]

Drawing the relative relationships set out in the Step is sometimes useful.

Journal 2nd Time Step 39.  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.
