Today I will seek the experience of true purpose in life. Step 131
SEEK THE EXPERIENCE OF TRUE PURPOSE. This provides the foundation for all meaningful relationships. Do not seek relationships outside of this context, for they will lack foundation and, though perhaps very alluring, will prove to be very difficult for you. Whether you are seeking marriage, great friendship or someone to help you in your work, remember that Knowledge will draw to you all individuals as you truly need them.

THEREFORE, TODAY CONCENTRATE ON PURPOSE and not on relationship. The greater your experience of purpose, the greater your comprehension of relationship. Though you will see that people come together for enjoyment and stimulation, there is a far greater component in their meeting. Few people recognize this, but it is given you to recognize this through practice and experience. You can be certain that if you are not trying to fit people into your own idea of purpose, you will be opening yourself to the genuine experience of purpose itself. As you begin to observe yourself objectively, you will begin to see the manifestations of your own will in contrast to Knowledge, and this will be very essential for your learning.

TODAY REMIND YOURSELF UPON THE HOUR of your intent to realize your purpose. Let today be a step in that direction—a step that will save you years and years of time, a step that will advance you forever towards your goal of Knowledge, for Knowledge is drawing you. In your two deeper practice periods, allow Knowledge to draw you. Feel the greater attraction within you, which you will naturally feel if you are not preoccupied with little things.

PRACTICE 131: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly practice.

Picture: Shouldn’t the picture for this Step be of beautiful clouds, a bright sunrise or at least something more uplifting than a nondescript person walking up a steep hill in a generic city? For most of the people in the unglamorous world, contemplating “true purpose” may occur in such mundane surroundings with themselves appearing equally mundane.

From the journal:

6 A.M. Wednesday, Nov 24, 1999 - Movement like the demolition derby, to keep moving, movement - towards.

8:20 A.M. Ready to go to work, but first WGC-I Service. GC is making sense to me and helping me relate to the world. There remain other messages & viewpoints. but S2K & GCW is what my focus shall be. It is all movement - that, in sync with that of others.

5:20 p.m. Home to meditate, then go to Winchester. ...

10:50 p.m. I am sad for ... (my children)

I am here to serve. I feel that, but perhaps Knowledge has come too late for me. Yes this world is all temporary, but there is good here. I could be better. Why are there so many souls here?

More questions. Let us continue.
Journal second time x2 Step 130.  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.
