x2 Step 333 - There is a presence with me. I can feel – Journal – Step 332
Today: Step 333 - There is a presence with me. I can feel it. (MP3)
FEEL THE PRESENCE OF YOUR TEACHERS TODAY who abide with you and oversee your preparation as a student of Knowledge. Feel their presence today and you will feel your own presence, for you are joined together in this presence that you feel. Remember that you are not alone, and you will not become isolated in your own thoughts. You will not become isolated in your own fearful considerations.
UPON THE HOUR EXPERIENCE THIS PRESENCE, for this presence is with you upon the hour. Feel this presence no matter where you are today, whether you are at work or at home, whether you are alone or with another, for this presence is with you wherever you go.
IN YOUR TWO DEEP MEDITATION PRACTICES allow yourself to experience the presence of love, which is the presence of Knowledge, which is the presence of Wisdom, which is the presence of certainty, which is the source of your purpose, meaning and direction in the world and which contains for you your calling in the world. Come into the proximity and into the experience of this presence in your deeper meditations. Do not neglect this, for here you will experience self-love, self-worth and true inclusion in life. Take this presence with you today and receive this presence in your deeper meditations, and you will know that the presence is with you every day.
PRACTICE 333: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly practice.
12:07 a.m. Tuesday, July 17, 2001 – M.E. Birthday… No reason to be concerned there.
Where am I?
12:15 am. Watching Talk Soup is not Knowledge. Yet – I'm so isolated.
12:25 a.m. I may have guides, spirits, angels – but in the physical I feel alone. I have family – blood yes – and friends that saved me in spite of attack. It is so weird. I can only work so much… Then there's a vegging – it seems I should not be so… – but here I am. Wasting all…wasting all.
8:50 a.m. "When you accept that you are only beginning to comprehend the meaning of your life and the meaning of Knowledge within your life, this frees you to participate and to learn more. Without the burden of judgment, which you would place upon your life otherwise, you are free to participate and your participation will make you free".
9:45 a.m. Pioneering regional community – What a challenge. It is necessary to go outside the system.
This a.m. – 3 responses on the resolution – Michael Brownlee, Bill S… – and Norm – Urantia – – Palden Jenkins – (sent 7/20/01)
11:18 p.m. Things done at work… home… Armor All the car. – walk with Cindy – little conversation – eat dinner – watch TV – two beers – call Penny – back to TV – the night is gone. Where am I?
I use the centering question: “Where am I?” often. It does help me recover focus. Let us continue.
Note: 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.
