My will is to know God. Step 43
YOUR WILL IS TO KNOW GOD. That is your true will. Any other desire or motivation is to escape this, which represents your will. It is your will that has become fearful to you. You are afraid of what you know and most deeply feel. This leads you to find refuge in other things that do not represent you, and in this you lose your identity and attempt to construct an identity that is related to those things which you have sought for escape. In isolation you are miserable, but in relationship happiness is regained.

YOUR WILL IS TO KNOW GOD. Do not be afraid of your will. You are created by God. God’s will is to know you. Your will is to know God. There is no other will. All motivations other than this are born merely of confusion and fear. To know God gives God power and gives you power as well.

IN YOUR TWO PRACTICE PERIODS TODAY, in silent meditation, practice feeling the strength of your own will. Do not let fear and doubt cloud your mind. You need not try to feel the will of God. It is simply there. It only requires your attention for you to recognize it. Therefore, practice deeply by simply being present to this experience.

PRACTICE 43: Two 30-minute practice periods.

Yesterday:  Step 42 - Review

Reviews are important. We are trying to determine our movement and change in perception. The journal, of course, is a help in this task. Going back over the past sometimes will generate a laugh.
From the Journal:
1:17 p.m. Saturday, August 28, 1999 - In the air on American Airlines en-route to Dallas, Texas to see my kids and grand-kids. ...
2:20 p.m. S2K Review - continued -
3 p.m. Conclusion S2k is my path. I have more access to power and have recovered from my planners burnout.
3:05 p.m. "We've got to region our way out of this."
Bucky Fuller - "I seem to be a verb." Tom C, "I seem to be regions." communication."
 Region as data structure.

Death/birth - a cosmic pit stop -  come out needing to get back up front. We've been lapped - There is repetition
the irreversibility of higher levels of communication.

What I was/am supposed to be doing in the world has always been part of my spiritual search/seeking. It may be yours as well. Whatever goes through your mind is fair game for the journal. The pit stop reference comes from NASCAR racing.

Journal 2nd Time Step 42.  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 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.
