x2 Step 352 - I am a true student of Knowledge today. – Journal – Step 351
Today: Step 352 - I am a true student of Knowledge today. (MP3)
AFFIRM THIS UPON THE HOUR, and in your two meditation practices enter your periods of silence with great reverence and devotion. These are your times of worship. You are truly going to church now—not from obligation, not from fear or anxiety and not from a sense of duty to an unloving God, but out of a sense of great joy and out of a desire to give yourself to that which gives itself to you. Be a true student of Knowledge. Remember all that has been told to you thus far and utilize it every hour. Engage with practice meaningfully, both internally and externally. Strengthen this day. Give this day to Knowledge as Knowledge gives this day to you so that you may learn about the presence of Knowledge in your life.
KNOWLEDGE IS GOD’S GIFT TO YOU, for Knowledge is God’s extension to you. Thus, Knowledge will be God to you but will speak of greatness beyond itself, for Knowledge is here to enable you to be in relationship meaningfully with yourself, with others and with life. Through this you will be able to reclaim relationships and thus move towards your True Home in God.
PRACTICE 352: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly practice.
1:45 a.m. Sunday, August 5, 2001 – can't sleep
Concern about David and Sarah – the deteriorating relationship with Cindy. Watched "Pay It Forward", a drama – good story, sad story, about a boy trying to heal his mother's life and his own. Fate takes him? …
2:10 p.m. I am overwhelmed by the unfolding – it is because I've stayed young in heart – looking for the new – that I can hear, see, feel, experience the change.
The most amazing show was on today – rather, what I taped last night. Michael Lewis talking about his book "Next:" The future has already arrived". [The Future Just Happened] …
A Region to Watch → Regions belong to those who claim them. The new search and the regional turf. It is the foolish city that does not claim it's hinterland and promote the growth of its neighbors. [8/31/02 – for how can it be a hub W/O links.]
Shuttle world – any vehicle with the driver can be a shuttle [my early idea of an Uber type world]
→ Those young people that made great strides in the Internet – became experts – lived in isolated, deprived environments.
→ this world is moving to become one
→ There is only ONE – WON
*[When we are one, we will have won.]
Regional Communities are subsets of the Local Planet Community. Each local community is involved/relates to many regional communities.
The globe is the only perfectly inclusive Map – entirely whole – entirely local.
The map is not 0.0001% of the territory. The map is not the map 8/31/02
The map models relationships relationship maps 8/31/02
David and Sarah – sending them money buys me time for Greater Community – their problems are my agenda for their needs are the needs of the world.
→ Planning can not only deal with the past – not the future – it is design/build
6:49 p.m. …
10:30 p.m. Talk to M.E. Phil sounds worse as it goes – he may be into porn – on the net perhaps – another risk to the baby. Nobody will do anything until the baby is born.
→ I missed the chance to save Sarah when I let her go back to Texas to be with Lloyd – Hell here – worse hell there.
If my life would calm down, I might have time to become a better student. 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.
