x2 Step 30 – Journal Step 29 - I will observe myself today to learn of Knowledge.

Today: Step 30 - Today I will observe my world. (MP3)

Today I will observe my world. Step 30

THIS DAY OBSERVE YOUR WORLD, following the same practice plan as practiced the previous day. Observe your world without judgment and observe what you are doing in the world without judgment. Then feel if anything needs to be done. Again, your hourly practices take but minutes, and as you practice, they will become more swift, more keen and more effective.

WE WISH FOR YOU TO VIEW THE WORLD without judgment, for this will enable you to see the world as it really is. Do not think that you have seen the world the way it really is, for what you have seen is your judgment upon the world. The world you will see without judgment is a different world than you have ever seen before.

PRACTICE 30: Hourly practice.

10:20 a.m. – Getting K – just a little – developing a focus on cooperation – a message that makes competition the little brother to cooperation. Viewpoint of the local planet and a huge game of survivor – Mankind has voted many species off the planet, many cultures too. Some, it appears, have self- destructed.

Survivor – by elimination or cooperation?

12:53 p.m. The Creator's intent is life – and through Jesus told us to "choose life that we might have abundance." In order to choose – we must know our context – the forest/the environment/the planet/the solar system/the galaxy/the greater community of life.

Physicality and souls must have a continuous link.

1:02 p.m. Regional – Intelligence will debut on September 21 – Area Agencies on Aging will be a potential regional geography which matches councils of government. I must do the Adelphia [Internet] thing. Need faster access I need my allies to be more Known to me.
6:03 p.m.@ Little Bear – TruthPatience

Walking in – with metal exercise balls – my mini Gamelon orchestra.

PDC – Regional Water Supply Committee
R I – presentation – the approach to show the Virginia Strategic Advantage – The intent was to empower localities through Service Districts.

Thanks to Gov. Holton – the die was cast – in 1968/1972 – now we have a regional community – it is peer/neighbor networking that creates value. Technology – communications tech can overcome the distance and get the critical mass.

It conflicts with the intentional creation of counties, towns, & cities – which were more limited/focused by travel/communication technology.

Sometimes the earth is one market – other times it's 6 billion one person markets.

On the trail – my soul is at home in the woods, on the sea, at the beach. In the Rockies, the sky becomes the ocean of blue. Mountains are massive, but there is less life to them/in them than here in the East.

6:24 p.m. @ Little Bear – I see myself learning from my errors in learning how to learn from my errors.

Objective observation of self; even with piles of journals, this is a renewed challenge. I recall reading “Man Against Himself” by Karl Menninger, in high school, about age 16. The book is described on Amazon as follows: “In this landmark book, the impulse toward self-destructiveness is examined as a misdirection of the instinct for survival, a turning inward of the aggressive behavior developed for self-preservation.” 

I don’ remember all the points, but I had a clear image about an individual shaping their own mind. It was a head of clay out of which emerged a hand that reached back and began to form the brain. In this way, the individual shapes self.

Having a perspective of know in which direction to shape the mind, well that requires great understanding, knowledge and wisdom, plus a sense of the future. I had the image then, and it has come to mind throughout my life. It will take time to understand in which direction we need to shape our minds. 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.
