Step Thirty-Eight


Step 38. God Knows The Way To Knowledge.
How can you find your way when you are lost? How can you know certainty when you value the temporary so greatly? How can you know the power of your own life when you are so intimidated by threats of loss and destruction? Life is kind to you, for it offers not only the reward but the way to the reward. If it were left up to you, it would be cruel indeed, for you would have to attempt every single possibility that you could conceive of, and then you would have the possibilities that others have conceived of and even the opportunities to reach Knowledge that others have used successfully but which may not in fact work well for you. In your brief span of time in the world, how can you accomplish all of these and still maintain your vitality? How can you maintain your encouragement for Knowledge when so many ways will disappoint you?

Take faith today in knowing that god knows the way to Knowledge, and you need only follow the way that is being given. In this way, Knowledge simply emerges in you because it is acknowledged, for only God knows Knowledge in you, and only Knowledge in you knows God. As the two resonate together, they both become more apparent. In this, you find peace.

In your two practice periods today, each of a 30-minute duration, practice feeling the presence of God, silently, in stillness. Not thinking about God, not speculating, not wondering, not doubting, but simply feeling. It is no fantasy that you are concentrating upon now, though you are used to concentrating upon fantasy. In stillness and quiet, everything becomes apparent. God is very still, for God is not going anywhere. As you become still, you will feel the power of God.

Here you will find pointers for getting started if this is your first encounter with this practice: Taking the Steps to Knowledge.

December 15, 2012 Round One: Knowing that I need only follow the way that is being given – this way to Knowledge that will simply emerge in me because it is acknowledged – is so very empowering and I know it to be true. There will be no disappointment, for there cannot be. God is not going anywhere – yes indeed!


August  8, 2014 Round Two: "God has given you a perfect guidance system within yourself, which we call Knowledge. You may also call it the Holy Spirit, if you wish. It is an inner guidance system. In a very pervasive way, it is exerting its influence on you continuously, and on rare occasions it will actually move you to do something and motivate you in a very strong way. The power of your Knowledge is tremendous, and it is safely hidden within you in such a way that you cannot meddle with it. It is more powerful than you are, but it is actually who you are."


I accept that Knowledge is the guidance system from God, even without having my own personal interpretation of God. I accept that what people call God is something I cannot fathom, I can only accept the mystery of it. So I do not concentrate on fantasy or speculate on what God might or might not be. God is not going anywhere. This I embrace wholeheartedly. God will always be around whenever I am ready and willing to let the presence of God fill me and be part of my experience. It is a feeling, not something to be confined to words that have no way of describing it.
