x2 Step 305 - I feel the power of love today. – Journal – Step 304
Today: Step 305 - I feel the power of love today. (MP3)
IF YOU ARE NOT CAUGHT IN THE WORLD’S PERSUASIONS, you will feel the power of love. If you are not seduced into the world’s ambivalence, you will feel the power of love. If you are with Knowledge, you will feel the power of love. This is natural to you, to your being, to your nature and to the nature of all who reside here with you. Therefore, as your studenthood in Knowledge deepens, your experience of love will deepen.
ALLOW LOVE TO BE IN YOUR LIFE TODAY, for Knowledge and love are one. Allow yourself to be a recipient of this today, for in this you are honored and your sense of unworthiness is dispelled. Receive the power of love upon the hour and receive it in your deeper meditation practices, where you practice true receptivity.
ALLOW KNOWLEDGE TO REVEAL THE NATURE OF LOVE TO YOU. Allow your love for Knowledge to generate Knowledge for you, for Knowledge loves you as its own, and as you learn to love Knowledge as your own, your sense of separation from life will disappear. Then, you will be prepared as a contributor in the world, for then you will only wish to contribute that which you have received. You will then realize that there is no other gift that can in any way compare to the gift of Knowledge, which is the gift of love. This you will wish to bestow upon the world with all your heart. Here your Teachers will become more active for you, for they will prepare you to contribute this effectively so that you may fulfill your destiny in the world.
PRACTICE 305: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly practice.
From the journal: Step 304 - I will not be a student of fear today.
7:20 a.m. June 19, 2001 – went to bed with intention of getting up @ 6 a.m. for letter to Warner –
Step 304 – "I will not be a student of fear today". I'm less afraid physically, but concerned that I am lethargic – not doing what I should be at a fast enough rate. Not enough or too much? I can't tell.
8:30 a.m. Slow start – lots to do. It is cool, damp, sunny, green – not normal for June. Life and relationships among peoples of different cultures is moving forward.
9:15 p.m. Step 304 – "I will not be a student of fear today". I've been fearful much of my life. These days, little physical fear – but economic, career, status – these fears linger, yet I don't care much about such things – I just want to do the work. Then I get home… and don't have the energy for the work I want to do.
10:20 p.m. Did the … letter – he's not likely to win… But the idea could get exposure.
Fear is less of a problem, but still there in my life. We will be working on this a long time. There is a shift, which now must be watched. 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.
