x2 Step 338 - Today I will be attentive.– Journal – Step 337
Today: Step 338 - Today I will be attentive. (MP3)
BE ATTENTIVE TODAY so that you may see what is occurring around you. Be attentive today so that you may experience yourself in the world. Be attentive today so that you may experience that the fire of Knowledge is burning within you. Be attentive today so that you may experience that the presence of your Teachers is with you. Be attentive today so that you may see that the fire of Knowledge is burning within the world and that the presence of your Teachers is present in the world as well. These things will naturally come to you as you are attentive, for without condemnation you will see what is actually occurring. This will confirm your spiritual nature and purpose in the world. This will confirm your true identity and give meaning to your individual life.
BE ATTENTIVE UPON THE HOUR TODAY and have confidence that being attentive will yield its own true results for you. Without judgment and evaluation, you will see through all fearful appearances that the world may present to you. You will see through all fearful appearances that your imagination may present to you, for all fearful appearances are born of and substantiated by imagination. In being attentive to the world, you recognize the world’s confusion and its need for Knowledge. This will confirm your own confusion and need for Knowledge and will make you happy that you are now preparing to receive Knowledge itself.
IN YOUR DEEPER MEDITATION PRACTICES BE ATTENTIVE, be present and give yourself in stillness within the sanctuary of Knowledge. You need only be attentive. Judgment is not necessary. Be attentive and you will penetrate the false and you will receive the true. For true attention will always give you that which is true, and false attention will always give you that which is false.
TODAY YOU STRENGTHEN THIS FACULTY OF MIND, this ability to be attentive. You strengthen this for yourself and for the world, which needs to be recognized. For the world needs to be loved, and love only comes through true recognition.
PRACTICE 338: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly practice.
From the journal:
10:39 a.m. July 22, 2001 – on the road. Rock 'n Roll Museum yesterday. I expected to meet someone new. I did. I met myself. This morning in my 1st practice "Alone I can do nothing.
In my car bound meditation – I met the RHG and we conversed. A year ago this didn't happen. I wasn't progressed enough. I’d wanted it before… wasn't ready, though I've had a sense of individual guides.
I wanted to know how to tell this wasn't my imagination? They showed me my journals. I asked who they were – I got a Jonathan Cleese – Monty Python Nigel – British voice from – I guess Mar-Cum – the clown. I asked about female – they said the soul could project either, but female is harder to project. I asked if they been with me all the time? They said, my guardian angel/thought adjuster is with me/everyone from birth. The group connects as one awakens/has life experience. I’d chosen to manifest. Our study is cooperation/our work is such.
I have a sense now needing to work strategically. For example, I asked about the job thing. They had hoped it would be smoother. I've met many need to work with – and when they sense someone – they try to move me to meet.
Coordination w/Cindy's – is goes on. Her guides primarily female – a different projection, a different life.
So…the future…still learning in the NSV… SU still a high option… Still, still in the flow – the process, RHG is working and I'm part, we’re together. I am not alone.
1:07 p.m. E.D.T. – The people of the U.S. connected themselves by trail, road, rail – then highway and airport. We do not want to be alone. How do we fuel this connectivity?
8/4/01 (the invisible hand of cooperation at work)
Reading from the same Steps period 13 months ago. So much has come through. I need to/we need to get it out – being patient, alert, still, active.
→ Irrigating corn in Indiana – should that be done? Planetary management – who is getting those degrees? Planet ecosystem is self-correcting. Hang on!
12:02 a.m. Monday, July 23, 2001 In TR. Got here 7 p.m. Visited Mom & Dad. Good to see them. Dad never held me so tightly nor looked so intently. We came back here for dinner – to the Lighthouse Inn. I did Practice 2 – Now that dialogue is open…it can't be experienced in the same way again. Watched top 10 unsolvable crimes. Isolated people kill others.
RHG is my Regional Harmonics Group. I’d been told about my group about 1989. I had picked up a name or two over the years. In this Step, some direct thought communication, but, as noted, by Practice 2, it didn’t happen again. So this whole idea is hard to get, yet some communication has come and it has been useful, so let us continue. Mystery is a good term. Let us continue with our own mystery.
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.
