I must learn to use the power that has been given to me. Continuation Training Step 31

I must learn to use the power that has been given to me. CT Step 31 (MP3)

I must learn to use the power that has been given to me. CT Step 31
Great power has been given to you. It is yours to receive and to apply, but you must learn how to use it, or it will not come forth, and you will not understand what it means or how it can serve the world in which you live.

Therefore, give yourself to become a student of Knowledge, to learn about the nature of power and grace and how it can be received, applied and employed in a world of conflict, in a world that is at risk now of losing its freedom in the Greater Community. Do not lose this opportunity. Let circumstances today show you the need for Knowledge. Let the trials and tribulations of the world demonstrate this to you as it can over and over and over again until there is no doubt left in your mind.

In your long practice in stillness and in your hourly practice in awareness and discernment, exercise this authority. Utilize it. This whole program of preparation is giving you a structure, a direction and a step-by-step training in accessing your spiritual power and utilizing it constructively in the world. Become then a recipient of Grace and a contributor of Grace, but to do this you must discover your own authority and exercise it wisely.

Practice 31:    One 30-minute stillness practice.
                         Contemplation practice.
                         Hourly practice.

For the continuation of reading material, the next book in Volume 1 of The Message is the not yet published "The Greater Community”. Thus the gray cover:
In the list of chapter names, this is second:

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.
