I give myself to my practice today. Continuation Training Step 13

I give myself to my practice today. CT Step 13 (MP3)
I give myself to my practice today. CT Step 13
No matter what is happening in your life at this moment, no matter what challenge you may be facing, or what difficulties may be preoccupying you, you have an opportunity today to apply everything to your practice and to deepen your practice. Here you participate in the world like your Creator, who uses everything for a greater purpose. The Creator does not come and destroy the wicked and take control of everyone and everything and force a unity that people would resist and could not choose for themselves. Instead, everything is set in motion for redemption, for reunion, for contribution, for empowerment, for forgiveness and for true recognition.

Today your life gives you the tools to do this. It gives you the laboratory experiment. Use everything today. In your practice time and in your hourly practices, use today. Stay with this. The world teaches you about Knowledge and about the denial of Knowledge and the ignorance of Knowledge. Use this. Let the world serve you through its demonstration. Observe yourself and see for yourself how easily your concentration is lost, how easily you give yourself away to things that seem to overtake you, things that do not have nearly the power that you do. See how your fear overtakes you, overwhelms you and how are at its mercy. Today can serve you in your practice if you are present.

Practice 13:    One 30-minute stillness practice.
                         Contemplation practice.
                         Hourly practice.

We continue.


Note: If you’ve some interest, but this is the first time you’ve seen 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. Begin at the beginning.

If you do know about Steps, but have not done Steps twice completely, read the related materials, and have a sense of the direction of this study, you won’t get the experience. The Introduction begins:

“This is the Steps to Knowledge Continuation Training. It is designed to build upon the Steps that were learned in Steps to Knowledge to enable you to experience the grace, the power and the direction of Knowledge in your life and to become an expression of Knowledge in everything that you do. If you have completed the book, Steps to Knowledge, twice through and have followed the instructions as they were given without altering the curriculum in any way, then you are now ready to begin this more advanced study”.

If you are an independent student, that is certainly an option. 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.
