YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOU WANT FOR THE WORLD because you do not understand the world, and you have not yet been able to see its predicament. When you realize that you do not know what you want for the world, this gives you the motivation and the opportunity to observe the world, to look again. This is essential for your understanding. It is essential for your well-being. The world will only disappoint you if it is misunderstood. You will only disappoint yourself if you are misunderstood. You have come to the world to work. Recognize the opportunity that this gives to you.
PRACTICE UPON THE HOUR TODAY IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES. Say the affirmation and then attempt to realize its truth. You do not know what you want for the world, but your Knowledge knows what it must contribute. Without your attempting to replace Knowledge with your own designs for the world, Knowledge will express itself freely without obstruction, and you and the world will be the great beneficiaries of its gifts.
PRACTICE 67: Hourly practice.
Pay attention to this, perhaps: "You do not know what you want for the world, but your Knowledge knows what it must contribute."
Picture: A Mercedes prepares to turn the corner across from a building with an “occupy” sign in Milan, Italy. Wealth and fairness for those in the world?
These are important Steps, but that is a little hard to recognize initially. No journal entry in 1999, but some notation in the book:
Note in blue, meaning year two, "some expectations has" is modified to be "many expectations have." Recognition leads to float time, like wandering around in the desert perhaps. The complaint I had this day was Child Labor laws and Spirit labor laws. What can one do with that?
Let us keep at it. It was not promised that this be easy.
Journal 2nd Time Step 66. 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.
