"Today I will be at ease." Step 111

Greetings All –

BE AT EASE TODAY KNOWING THAT KNOWLEDGE IS WITH YOU, knowing that your Teachers are with you and knowing that your Spiritual Family is with you. Let not anxieties or the burden of concern take you away from your practice today.

AS YOU MOVE THROUGH THE DAY, practicing upon the hour, remind yourself to be at ease, for Knowledge is your guide now. If it is untroubled, you need not be troubled. Release yourself from habitual preoccupations, from habitual bondage. Strengthen your resolve to do this and it will become easier in time. Then it will happen all by itself most naturally. Your mind has habits of thought. That is all they are. As they are replaced with new habits, Knowledge will begin to shine through the structure that you have imposed upon it. Here Knowledge will begin to shine forth, to guide your actions, to lead you to insight  and important discovery and to give you a greater strength and certainty than you have ever known.

IN YOUR HOURLY PRACTICES, therefore, utilize your self-discipline on your own behalf. In your two meditation practices, remain very alert but with a still mind.

PRACTICE 111: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly practice.

From the journal:

Nov 4, 1999 …

8:05 A.M. I will be honest with myself today. S2K – this is challenging – for I am both average and unique. I’m also getting old, tired and lazy – but no rest is in sight. Others need me, I need myself and I have a heavenly perspective – regional cooperation – to promote.

After reading the Urantia book I’ve been waiting for the moment of Thought Adjuster – soul fusion where, in a bright light, you go off earth to the next level. When you master, you disappear. Someday I’ll die – and the drama here will go on, getting better, faster – the happy dream. There is so much detail, yet it must be seen/dealt with as whole. What fun?

11:14 p.m. Have I been honest all day? In some respects yes, in others it isn’t possible. I did not do a second session. When I came home from work I just wanted to veg. That was hones. If I did the practice, I’d be up way too late – and energized.

I’m drinking the last of the scotch. Johnnie Walker Red – very nice – but too expensive a habit. …

12:04 A.M. Friday, November 5 – Staying up late – hoping some thought will come and save me from being myself. It never comes.

Bumping along - I am at this time. A few thoughts written on the Steps book page.

There is progress. Let us continue.


Journal second time x2 Step 110.  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.
