x2 Step 304 - I will not be a student of fear today. – Journal – Step 303
Today: Step 304 - I will not be a student of fear today. (MP3)
REMEMBER THAT YOU ARE ALWAYS A STUDENT—every day, every hour and every moment. Therefore, as you become more conscientious, you must select what you will learn. Here you are given a real choice, for you are either a student of Knowledge or you are a student of confusion. Do not be a student of confusion today. Do not be a student of fear today, for without Knowledge there is uncertainty and there is fear. Without Knowledge there are fearful pursuits which perpetrate greater fear and a greater sense of loss.
REALIZE YOUR RESPONSIBILITY AS A STUDENT. Realize this and accept this with relief, for you have a meaningful choice here—to be a student of Knowledge or a student of confusion. Knowledge will cast its influence upon you to enable you to make the right choice, to choose that which renders you certainty, purpose, meaning and value in the world. Then, you may become a force for Knowledge in the world to dispel confusion, darkness and fear from all minds that labor under their oppressive weight.
DO NOT BE A STUDENT OF FEAR. Make this resolution within yourself upon the hour as you recognize the fearful persuasions of the world, the confusion of the world and its dark influence upon all who feel its oppression. Allow yourself to be a liberated soul within the world. Hold the jewel of love within your heart. Hold the light of Knowledge within your heart. When you return to your two deeper meditation practices today, repeat the idea for today so that you may enter into stillness and silence within your sanctuary. Rejuvenate yourself in Knowledge and refresh yourself, for Knowledge is the great light that you carry. The more that you come within its presence, the more it will radiate itself upon you and the more it will shine upon you and, through you, upon the world.
PRACTICE 304: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly practice.
Picture: This New York City bus has an ad for a TV courtroom show. For those who may fear for their lives if they give testimony in court – “tell the truth”, “witness relocation” programs were created. Individuals get a new identity after serving as witnesses and are relocated in the country.
From the journal: Step 303 - I will step back from the world's persuasions today.
1:04 a.m. Monday, June 18, 2001 –… Error and Joy side-by-side.
Step 303 – I will step back from the world's persuasions –
Resolution by humanity –
No alien trespass –
Humanity acts – no government to do this
Until such a body is in place – the will of humanity – is – no intervention –
All communication shall be public
– No claims will be recognized
– All equipment and beings must be removed
– No agreements with governments, formal or informal are binding since none were negotiated with the consent of the governed
– No secret government can impose binding contracts
– Any contact/contract would need approval of a majority of voting adults.
– Arrangements for and conduct of such a vote –
6:02 p.m. Practice #2 "I will step back from the world's persuasions today".
– I did get a chocolate bar and smoke the cappuccino Slurpee to caffeine myself through household projections.
6:47 p.m. Practice complete – very tired.
Listening to the message on alien intervention has begun to make me think about what might be done. In my work with and for local government, things begin with a resolution to do something or support something. I’ve begun to think of what a resolution about the intervention would include. Let us continue now.
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.
