Today I will be attentive to others. Continuation Training Step 59

Today I will be attentive to others. CT Step 59 (MP3)

Today I will be attentive to others. CT Step 59
Today practice listening to what others tell you. Listen for Knowledge. If Knowledge cannot be detected, simply remain silent, but be discrete. People talk a great deal, but their primary message is often lost. They mean one thing but say another. This is your opportunity to hear. Even if someone is being difficult or critical or antagonistic, listen. Listen for Knowledge. Don't try to put a happy face on the situation. Don't try to give their communication some kind of spiritual message. Just listen. To do this, your mind must be quiet, and this is part of the reason you practice stillness, so that you can listen when you need to. And you do need to.

In your practice in stillness, continue this listening exercise and upon the hour listen carefully. Use your whole body to listen when you are doing this practice. For it is not just the ears that are hearing. It is your whole being. Today listen to what others tell you. Do not pass judgment. Do not critically evaluate what they are saying. Just listen for Knowledge. Either Knowledge is there or it is not, and if it is there, what is it really communicating? If you listen, you might hear.

Practice 59:   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. Fifth in the list as of this date is:  The Worldwide Community of God’s New Revelation

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.
