Step 37. There Is A Way To Knowledge.
In your two practice periods today, which will not be meditation practices, spend at least 15 minutes thinking of all the ways to gain access to Knowledge. Write down on a piece of paper all the ways to get to Knowledge. Spend both practice periods doing this and exhaust all the possibilities that you can think of. Try to be very specific. Use your imagination, but chart out routes that appear to be quite real and meaningful to you. In this way, you will know what you think about how to find a way to Knowledge, and from this you will realize that God knows the way to Knowledge.
Practice 37: Two 15-minute practice periods.
Having said that, however, when I began this Step, I felt my inherent resistance, meaning I thought - "well, I'm not going to do that, I don't need to do that," that is, I did not want to be writing things down (although it is my constant practice, but only of my own free will), I did not want to be told that I needed to write things down, and my mind was a blank anyway. But I kept at it, I kept returning to the Step and rereading it. And this morning I began writing - and I couldn't stop - the words just kept flowing onto the page!
And something clicked....
This too is my experience.
