x2 Step 361 - I am being led into the light of Knowledge today. – Journal – Step 360
Today: Step 361 - I am being led into the light of Knowledge today. (MP3)
YOU CARRY THE LIGHT. Carry it with you each hour and in every circumstance. Use your entire day to practice carrying Knowledge. Do not try to express Knowledge, for Knowledge will do this itself when it is appropriate. Your task today is to carry Knowledge, to be attentive and to remember that Knowledge is with you. Whether you are alone or with others, whether you are at work or at home and whether you are in a situation that is pleasant or unpleasant, carry Knowledge within you. Feel it burning in your heart. Feel it filling the great expanse of your mind.
IN YOUR TWO DEEPER PRACTICE PERIODS, re-enter the sanctuary of Knowledge so that you may be refreshed and renewed, so that you may be blessed and honored and so that you may find reprieve and freedom. The more you find this in your inner life, the more you will be able to carry it into your outer life, for you are meant to carry Knowledge into the world today.
PRACTICE 361: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly practice.
From the journal: Step 360 - I must learn how to reveal greatness in the world.
7:50 p.m. August 14, 2001 – Practice #1 – Another long day – no time for meditation in the a.m., Though I took the practice through the day, though it did not say hourly practice. The Step – 360 is "I must learn how to reveal greatness in the world".
As I returned from Woodstock – where Clayton and I had a meeting with Shenandoah County BOS and towns on the Authority. That went well. I stayed for George S…’s "Source Water Assessment Program". It was very well done. It covered much of the ground set out in our 1985 Groundwater Protection Plan – and the 1992 wellhead protection programs.
Driving back to Font Royal I Knew that a way to reveal Greatness in the world is to encourage others to express and further develop the greatness they carry.
Practice – 50 minutes (?)
(1) Follow my path,
(2) Encourage greatness of others,
(3) Stillness –
Greatness – greater community – the small is great. This is a big theme. What does it mean to be great? Steps leads us along a path to understanding through experience. 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.
