Knowledge is with me. Step 58
TODAY WE AFFIRM THE PRESENCE OF KNOWLEDGE in your life. Upon each hour claim this affirmation and then take a moment to attempt to feel this presence. You must feel it. You cannot conceive of it alone, for Knowledge must be experienced. In whatever circumstance you find yourself in today, repeat this affirmation once upon the hour and attempt to feel its meaning. You will find that there are many situations that you thought were inappropriate for practice where you can practice. In this way, you will find that you have the power to govern your experience to meet your true inclinations, and you will find that any circumstance is an adequate environment for true preparation and self-application.

TRY TO PRACTICE EACH HOUR. Remain conscious of your time. If an hour is missed, do not worry, but rededicate yourself to practice in the remaining hours as you proceed. Knowledge is with you today. Today be with Knowledge.

PRACTICE 58: Hourly practice.

To help with the hourly practice, a chime on your watch, smart phone or computer helps.

Picture:  This bus stop scene from Boulder, Colorado, evokes the Joan Osborne song: - One Of Us? In which one stanza goes:
     What if God was one of us?
     Just a slob like one of us?
     Just a stranger on the bus
     Trying to make His way home?
For me, Knowledge is often with me in lyrics like this.

This is an important Step. I will add the Step page image.


From the Journal:

9/12/99 ...
S2K today is Step 57 - Freedom is with me. I had a short meditation at Chapel. The realization is that as spirit, we bring freedom with us. It is the earth spell that takes it away.
5:07 p.m. Reviewing my goals - It strikes me that I want to teach - ***geography-free community?

You maybe considering your career work relative to Steps to Knowledge, or at a stage when you are deciding upon your work path. The New Message is very practical in terms of having work to support yourself, work that is unlikely to be your needed field. Such musing can be journaled. Let us continue. 

Journal 2nd Time Step 57.  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.
