The Greater Community is in the world. Continuation Training Step 9

The Greater Community is in the world. CT Step 9 (MP3)

The Greater Community is in the world. CT Step 9
Forces from the Greater Community are in the world. This can be known. This can be felt. Perhaps you are feeling it already or have felt it in the past. The world's emergence into the Greater Community is well underway, but who can respond to it? Who can understand what it means or what its implications are? In developing your relationship with the world and your relationship with Knowledge, you must come to understand the condition of the world that you have been sent to serve. Knowledge understands this, but the personal mind, having been built upon fear and preference, cannot see this yet. Therefore, what is obvious escapes the attention of nearly everyone, and what is imaginary seems to be highly agreed upon. At this point, it is important to remember that Greater Community forces are in the world, and you must come to learn what this means for you.

In your practice in stillness, let this awareness naturally emerge, which it naturally will do over time. In your hourly practices, try to be attentive to where you are and to what is happening. And today take time to consider today's lesson. Perhaps it does not conform with your ideas. Perhaps it does. Perhaps you have experienced it directly. Perhaps you have not. But if you become attentive, you can realize that the condition of your world has changed, and part of this change is the presence of other forms of intelligent life here. Become still and over time this will become very clear to you.

Practice 9:      One 30-minute stillness practice.
                         Contemplation practice.
                         Hourly practice.

Picture:  This ET looking statue was at the Hidden Treasures shop on Topanga Canyon Boulevard. We headed up that road from the Pacific Ocean Highway, heading south to Malibu from Santa Monica during a visit to California. It may have been a movie prop, but here it was in an artfully arranged collection of modern civilization’s artifacts. I took several pictures. ET representations are all over the commercial world today. ET is a joke. Steps does not consider that either a knowledgeable or wise approach. Date take: April 15. 2013

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.
