My life is a mystery to explore. Continuation Training Step 34

My life is a mystery to explore. CT Step 34 (MP3)

My life is a mystery to explore. CT Step 34
We continue this practice from Steps to Knowledge because it is so very true. Your life is a great mystery. It is not simply the accumulation of your activities each day—-your work, your hobbies, your family obligations, your tendencies, your fears and your phobias. This is only the outer part of yourself, the part that is shaped and conditioned by your worldly experiences. Yet there is a greater Mystery for you to explore and to discover.

Enter the realm of stillness in your long practice today and utilize this great Mystery in exercising the strength of awareness and discernment upon the hour. Bring this Mystery into your experience, into your daily life, into your mundane circumstances, and with it you shall bring strength, grace and resolution, both for yourself and for others.

Practice 34:   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 Pure Religion”. Thus the gray cover:

In the list of chapter names, this is first:

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.
