Greetings All –
Step 115 - Today I will listen to the power of Knowledge. (MP3) [Open in Drive or copy to your Drive – Download folder or play from Drive – Step PDF also.]
TODAY LISTEN TO THE POWER OF KNOWLEDGE. It requires your attention. It requires your desire. It requires the relinquishment of things which preoccupy and concern you, things you cannot resolve on your own. Listen to Knowledge today so that it may comfort you and abide with you. In its silence, you will find solid reassurance and confidence as well. For if Knowledge is silent, you need not have anxiety about your life, and if Knowledge speaks, you need only follow so that you may learn the power of Knowledge for you.
YOU BECOME STILL BECAUSE KNOWLEDGE IS STILL. You become capable of action because Knowledge is capable of action. You learn to speak with simplicity because Knowledge speaks with simplicity. You learn to be at ease because Knowledge is at ease. You learn to give because Knowledge gives. It is to re-engage you in relationship with your Knowledge that you are now engaged in this program of development.
UPON THE HOUR TODAY, remind yourself to listen to Knowledge and take a moment to do so in whatever circumstance you find yourself. Your first activity in listening is stillness. Practice this in greater depth in your two meditation practices today, where you practice stillness and receptivity because you wish to listen to Knowledge today.
PRACTICE 115: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly practice.
Note about Knowledge: “It requires your attention. It requires your desire.”
Yesterday: My true friends are with me. I am not alone.

To orchestrate simplicity –
Simple for spirit/God
These are not new thoughts in the world, but it is a new exploration for me.
All my relations-I really don’t know consciously what they are.
23 minutes – meditation #2 – hard to go the distance.
Work entries, but a lean day for comments.
The Steps page notes acknowledge fears and has the term: “Thought Adjusters” That is a concept from The Urantia Book. Paper 107 - Origin and Nature of Thought Adjusters gives an introduction; 108 – 111 explain more.
Simply, each person has a Thought Adjuster, essentially a personal guide with whom one is to make contact; to recognize spiritually and fuse, after which it always seemed to me, one would ascend – on the spot. While common on other planets, this fusion was uncommon for humans on earth.
Let us continue with Steps.
Journal second time x2 Step 114. 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.
