Today I will learn of the Greater Community. Continuation Training Step 26

Today I will learn of the Greater Community. CT Step 26 (MP3)

Today I will learn of the Greater Community. CT Step 26
This day you can learn a little more about the Greater Community, and even more than that if you should choose to do so. Through the study in Greater Community Spirituality, you have been given a new perspective and a vantage point from which to see. Gain this vantage point. Utilize this perspective. And you will see what could not be seen otherwise.

The Greater Community is the bigger picture of your life. It is the larger context for understanding who you are and why you are here. It takes the parameters of your life beyond personal preference and anxiety and places you in relationship to the world, in relationship to others, and in relationship to the world’s evolution. This is part of the revelation that you can receive today. And it will be a revelation because it will liberate you from so many constraints that hurt you, belittle you and keep your mind in a state of darkness.

Your future is in the Greater Community. Your work is in the Greater Community. Your preparation is for the Greater Community. That which seems so far beyond your personal and immediate concerns is the very thing that gives meaning and direction to your life. For this is the time that humanity begins to recognize its opportunity and its predicament within the context of the Greater Community. And this is the time when people must learn to prepare and to become educated about life, reality and spirituality within the larger context of their lives.

Reinforce your desire and capacity for this today through your one long practice in stillness and through your hourly practices in awareness and discernment. And take time today to consider your relationship with the Greater Community. Seek to know more. Ask to know more. Try to penetrate the veil that keeps you from understanding life at a higher level.

Practice 26:   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 New Life. Thus the gray cover:

In the list of chapter names, this is fifth:

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.
