Step One Hundred and Twenty-Five
Therefore, this day be exactly as you are. Remind yourself upon the hour. And in your two meditation practices today, allow yourself to be still and to receive, for you are not trying to be someone today.
Practice 125: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly practice.
And I realize today that I don’t have an idealistic view of myself, I am who am I, take it or leave it. I am very naïve and unknowledgeable, but I don’t condemn myself for this today, rather I see it as an asset, since it means I am open and teachable. I don’t have a lot of baggage to get rid of, since I didn’t have any ambitions in the first place. I just strive to be the best person I can with the abilities I have.
“Since, in truth, there is only one you, you must consider your relationship with yourself in terms of your relationship with your mind and with your body. You have a relationship both with your mind and with your body. Who you are is neither your mind nor your body. Your mind and your body are not as great as who you are. However, who you are must be experienced and expressed through these vehicles in order for your life to have meaning in the world. And like it or not, you are in the world where you are supposed to be.”
