Step 66. I Will Stop Complaining About The World.
Upon the hour today give this affirmation to yourself and then practice it. Each hour spend a minute not complaining about the world. Do not let the hours go by unattended, but be present for practice. Recognize the extent to which others are complaining about the world and how little it gives them and how little it gives the world. The world has already been condemned by those who dwell within it. If it is to be loved and cultivated, its predicaments must be recognized and its opportunities must be accepted. Who can complain when an environment is given where Knowledge can be reclaimed and contributed? The world only needs Knowledge and the expressions of Knowledge. How can it be worthy of condemnation?
Practice 66: Hourly practice.
I apply this to myself and feel gratitude for the opportunity offered by Knowledge to correct myself and perhaps, if I am diligent and persevering enough, even to see where I can make a contribution. That is if I can subdue my arrogance and other shortcomings.
I knew this when I came here, but then I forgot. Now I am trying to remember again. The world as it is today provides a unique opportunity to do this and I accept and rejoice in this opportunity. If I were not in the world as it is at this moment, I would not have this fabulous opportunity to grow and reclaim Knowledge. Many of us here on the planet at this specific time, at this momentous time in its evolution, came here to contribute. If only we can remember this, if only we can realize this, if only we can reclaim the Knowledge placed inside us in order to accomplish the work we came here to do.
“Each of you has come from your Spiritual Family into this world to play your part in this era of human evolution. You have come with problems to solve, but more importantly you have come bringing the memory of your Ancient Home here, so that the distinction between the world and the Ancient Home from which you have come will lessen and disappear in time.”
