YOU ALREADY ARE SOMEONE, so why try to be someone? It is better to be the person you already are. The person you already are is the power of Knowledge carried in the vehicle of the nature of an individual. This is already established, and it is under development right now. Why try to be something today when you are something already? Why not be what you are? Find out what you are. This takes great courage, for you must risk disappointing your own idealistic view of yourself and the world. This takes encouragement because you must risk giving up your self-hatred, which is a way that you separate yourself from life.
THEREFORE, THIS DAY BE EXACTLY AS YOU ARE. Remind yourself upon the hour. And in your two meditation practices today, allow yourself to be still and to receive, for you are not trying to be someone today.
PRACTICE 125: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly practice.
“Be exactly as you are.”
From the journal:
6:30 A.M. Thursday, November 18 – The Legislative Dinner meeting. Two years ago – descent into Hell. Not yet out.
S2K – I am not me today. (Not really – just how I feel.)
8:10 A.M. M.E. called – Sarah went back to Lloyd. I am sad for Sarah – and for how this interferes with my life.
The Steps page had a few comments this day.
The top reads: “Seeing, feeling the great detail and wealth of manifestation in life is an intense wonderful, experience which is Knowledge at close range.“
The bottom comment, blue year two is: “he/she who is truly satisfied will have in their expression the power of Knowledge. Knowledge is an intense experience of life.”
Over time, you may do this Step, as part of Steps, many times. Each time, there will be learning - re-learning. Let us continue.
Journal second time x2 Step 124. 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.
