Greetings All –

Step 155 - The world blesses me as I receive. (MP3) [Open in Drive or copy to your Drive – Download folder or play from Drive – Step PDF also.]

“The world blesses me as I receive.” Step 155

YOU ARE LEARNING NOW TO RECEIVE. The world blesses you as you learn to receive, for Knowledge will flow into you as you become an open receptacle for Knowledge. And you will draw that which is life into yourself, for life is always attracted to those who give.

UNDERSTAND THIS IN ITS FULL DEPTH THIS DAY as you remind yourself upon the hour that life gives to you as you are still. In your two meditation practices, enter stillness once again and feel life being drawn into you. This is a natural attraction. As your giving and stillness become greater, you will feel life being drawn into you, for you will in time become a source of nourishment for life.

PRACTICE 155: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly practice.

From the journal:

7:30 a.m. Saturday, December 18, 1999
Hung over with headache from last night’s bourbon binge. Three mini bottles, plus a bottle Heinekens. I played KWS CDs – and Chambers Brothers “Time has come today.”  Danced a little with my headphones on. My guides may be upset and I’m in a little pain – for being my old self – my Wisconsin roots (bars & Bands).
12 Noon – Need to head south. I’ve not done the cleaning/organizing of David’s room that is needed for Cindy’s party. No time/energy to organize. I could have done it last night instead of TV & bourbon – but didn’t. I’m finding my place in the flow – seeking to be a conduit for Knowledge – whatever that might mean.
11:40 p.m. The party is over. …
No sign of the Review in these entries. I debated whether or not to include this for the blog, but thinking it is best to be honest, that might be useful for students who, like me, are less than perfect.

We will stick with the Steps practice because everything else is empty.  

Journal second time x2 Step 154.  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.
