BE WITH KNOWLEDGE TODAY so that you may have the certainty and the power of Knowledge available to you. Allow Knowledge to give you stillness. Allow Knowledge to give you strength and competency. Allow Knowledge to teach you. Allow Knowledge to reveal the universe as it truly exists, not as you judge it to be.
IN YOUR TWO PRACTICE PERIODS, practice in stillness feeling the power of Knowledge. Do not ask questions. That is not necessary now. Do not argue with yourself about the reality of your pursuit, for that is wasteful and meaningless. You cannot know until you receive, and to receive you must trust your inclination to know.
TODAY BE WITH KNOWLEDGE. In your practice periods, let nothing dissuade you. You need only relax and be present. From these practices a greater presence will be recognized, and this will begin to allay your fears.
PRACTICE 50: Two 30-minute practice periods.
Yesterday: Step 49 - Review
Step 49 takes a fair amount of time if done completely.
From the Journal:
8:17 A.M. Up at 6:30 ... Outside, having reread lessons 1 to 35. Need a break from that. ...
That is all that is recorded. The day was spent flying from Texas to Virginia.
The Step says: "You have come this far. Congratulations! You have passed the first test. Be encouraged now to proceed, for Knowledge is with you."
Let's stick with that. We passed the first test.
Journal 2nd Time Step 49. 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.
