…come to your practices with an open mind and an open heart. REVIEW Continuation Training Step 49

…come to your practices with an open mind and an open heart. REVIEW CT Step 49 (MP3)

Read the past six lessons and consider their meaning and their value. See what influence they have had upon your life. Try to delve deeper into the messages that they are giving you and the foundation that they are helping you to build for yourself.

Then turn your attention to the Four Pillars of your life. Again review your Four Pillars, listening for Knowledge—-listening to hear if something needs your attention, listening with deeper ears, without preference, without fear, even without hope. The problem with hope is that it is a cover for fear. The only real hope that you have is that Knowledge is with you and that you cannot lose Knowledge. That is true, but beyond that, hope is simply an adaptation to the existence of fear.

Therefore, come to your practices with an open mind and an open heart. You are here to learn—- not to demand, not to defend, not to protect, not to negotiate, but to receive and to learn so that  you may be able to give.

Practice 49:   Four Pillars Review.
                         Hourly practice.

For the continuation of reading material, the next book in Volume 2 of The Message is “Relationships and Higher Purpose”. Six chapters are available as downloads.

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.
