Step 12. My Individuality Is To Express Life Itself.
On two occasions today, practice two periods of silence exercising the practice that we have illustrated thus far.
Practice 12: Two 15-minute practice periods.
I am here to express something and this "something" relates to the part I play in the whole, not something that relates to me personally, as an individual, but to my essence as a drop in the ocean of life, the part of me that contributes to all that is. This is what I understand now.
June 28, 2018 Round Three: I have chosen this physical existence to express life, so my individuality is not a burden, but an asset, and I should find joy in this. I am not to judge myself or others for how we express our individuality in the world. Most people do not know how to do this, it is not their fault, so I cannot feel disdain and animosity. I will express my individuality in the most loving and accepting way I can.
First stillness practice - 4.23-4.38. Descended into a bright, luminous space, felt the benevolence of Knowledge. It is vast and all-knowing. It is still and clear. It envelops me in its embrace and I feel a deep contentment and affirmation of what I know.
Second stillness practice - 20.00-20.15 Some distraction, focusing on Claire and her wholeness. Entered vast luminous space of benevolence, was able to hold myself there for short periods. It is filled with a divine, loving Presence.
