Today I will not judge another. Step 76
WITHOUT JUDGMENT YOU CAN SEE. Without judgment you can learn. Without judgment your mind becomes open. Without judgment you understand yourself. Without judgment you can understand another.

UPON EACH HOUR TODAY, repeat this statement as you witness yourself and the world around you. Repeat this statement and feel its impact. Release your judgments for a few moments, and then feel the contrast and the experience that this will provide for you. Do not judge another today. Allow others to reveal themselves to you. Without judgment you will not suffer under your own crown of thorns. Without judgment you will feel the presence of your Teachers assisting you.

ALLOW YOUR HOURLY PRACTICES TO BE CONSISTENT. If an hour is missed, forgive yourself and rededicate yourself.  Errors are to teach you, strengthen you and show you what you need to learn.

REGARDLESS OF WHAT ANOTHER IS DOING, regardless of how he or she may offend your sensitivities, your ideas or your values, do not judge another today.

PRACTICE 76: Hourly practice.

Picture:  Book sellers display at American Academy of Religion, Baltimore, Maryland. Sometimes, the Bible is considered a source of judgmental thinking.

This Step is interesting. In 1999, nothing recorded on this Step. From the page, a few highlighted points.

We accept for the purpose of Steps, as beginning students, that the Step is correct in saying what we must do and that the promise of recognizing the voice of our True Self will happen again. In the past we may have heard it, but not recognized it. Let us continue.


Journal 2nd Time Step 75.  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.
