My freedom is my gift to others. Continuation Training Step 66

My freedom is my gift to others. CT Step 66 (MP3)

My freedom is my gift to others. CT Step 66
Your freedom is a gift. You gain your freedom not just for yourself but for others. This generates true determination and commitment, for you cannot afford failure here. Here your giving is occurring even during your times of practice and preparation. Here you go beyond your preferences, your wishes and your feelings in the moment and exercise a greater authority over your time and your circumstances. You do this for yourself and for others. And though you proceed with humility, you have this recognition. It is a responsibility. It is a responsibility that the Wise everywhere must assume, sooner or later. It is what gives them their commitment and their power.

You as an individual do not have the answers. You as an individual are not a god. But you can become a vehicle for Knowledge, one of God’s representatives, a force for good in the world. But this power runs through you. It is not yours to own. Here there is no mistake. Here there are no saints and gurus and avatars proclaiming themselves, for the truly wise do not do this. Their freedom is constantly being given because it is constantly being demonstrated. They claim nothing else for themselves.

Therefore, do not have illusions of power or grandeur here. You are exercising an essential right and contribution. Exercise this by becoming still during your meditation and utilize this power to use awareness and discernment upon the hour throughout the day.

Practice 66:   One 30-minute stillness practice.
                         Contemplation practice.
                         Hourly practice.

For the continuation of reading material we go to Other Revelations of the New Message from God that have not yet been compiled by The Messenger into volumes and books. Twelfth in the list as of this date is:  Courage and the Will to Prepare

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.
