x2 Step 356 - I will find my Self today. – Journal – Step 355
Today: Step 356 - I will find my Self today. (MP3)
YOUR SELF IS GREATER THAN YOUR CURRENT CAPACITY to experience it. Yet, within your current capacity you can find your Self and experience it. Remember that this is your great desire. Remember this upon the hour. Remember that you want to find your Self, for without your Self you are lost in your own thinking and in the erratic thinking of the world. Without your Self, you will feel as temporary and as changeable as the world. Without your Self, you will feel as threatened and as threatening as the world. Therefore, your true desire is to reclaim your Self and with your Self all things that are inherent within your Self that are born of your one True Source, that are expressed through your Knowledge and that live within your Ancient Home.
TODAY IN YOUR DEEPER PRACTICE PERIODS, come again to Knowledge. Come to give yourself. Come to worship. Come in devotion and reverence so that you may increase your capacity to experience yourself, both within your meditation practice time and within your time in the world. You have come into the world to reclaim your Knowledge and to allow your Knowledge to express itself. You will then express your Self, for you are in the world to express your Self.
PRACTICE 356: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly practice.
From the journal: Step 355 - I can be at peace in the world.
9:25 p.m. August 9, 2001 – My first recording today. Man might wish to discover the secrets of the universe, but it looks to me that what might be discoverable are the relationships – particularly in the realm of matter, chemistry and much of biology. Secrets? I don't think they qualify – and the real story we can't fathom with these brains and/or souls.
On "Crossing Over" a soul of an infant that died at 3 months came through. That happened 21 years ago. The infant was with the grandfather – That gave me hope for Susan Marie – however she comes. Tommy Pace may be there. Sarah seems to be living the street life that came in a poem at Camp Summit. It now seems predictive.
When Sarah came to us I loved her. I didn't give her initially the time David got. It may not have been enough for either of them…but I do love and I won't reject them.
11:39 p.m. Relationships in my life – all are OK except Cindy. … . I'm confused. There is little to talk about, but my life is full – Is there tension? Competition? Hurt feelings? GC Directions for improvement?
Being at peace; getting relationships life – common goals, but not easy. There is progress and also need for progress. The sense in these Steps has always been to continue, so 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.
