Step Ten


Step 10. What Is Knowledge?
Let us say that Knowledge is not the things that are usually associated with it. It is not ideas. It is not a body of information. It is not a system of belief. It is not a process of self-evaluation. It is the great mystery of your life. Its outward manifestations are profound intuition, great insight, inexplicable knowing, wise perception in the present and in the future and wise understanding of the past. But despite these great achievements of mind, Knowledge is greater than this. It is your True Self, a Self that is not apart from life.

November 14, 2012 Round One: When pondering this step, I underlined what particularly spoke to me, rather than writing down my thoughts about it. What I underlined was:
“It is the great mystery of your life. Its outward manifestations are profound intuition, great insight, inexplicable knowing, wise perception in the present and in the future and wise understanding of the past.”
“Inexplicable knowing,” yes, I have always been partial to the concept of “gnosis.”

July 5, 2014 Round Two: First reading – this is so superb! I felt this the first time and I feel it even more this time. This says it all in such a succinct and profound way. Knowledge is the great mystery of my life. I am willing to embrace this and see where it leads.

Second reading – Knowledge is greater than anything I can possibly fathom. I can only begin to experience it on this physical plane.

Third reading – Knowledge is my True Self. This gives me an intimate relationship with Knowledge. It is an intrinsic part of me, the part of me that belongs to the whole, that is not apart from life. This is such an important concept to grasp, that I am not separate, not an individual, but part of the Greater Whole.
