Step One Hundred and Thirteen
Step 113. I Will Not Be Persuaded By Others.
Therefore, keep to yourself. Follow Knowledge. If another stimulates your Knowledge, then give that individual your attention so that you may learn of the true powers of persuasion. Yet, let not the persuasions of this world—its grievances, its cherished ideals, its morality, its demands or its compromises—influence you, for you are following Knowledge, and you need not follow the persuasions of the world.
Remind yourself of today’s idea upon the hour and practice stillness deeply in your two meditation practices today. Allow only Knowledge to persuade you, for this is all that you need to follow in the world.
Practice 113: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly practice.
