Step One Hundred and Forty-Four
Daughter Claire in 1990 on her third birthday. Hang in there my sweet angel!
Step 144. I Will Honor Myself Today.
In simplicity and humility remind yourself upon the hour to honor yourself. In your two deeper practices today, allow yourself to experience the presence of Knowledge, for this honors you and honors Knowledge as well. Honor yourself this day so that Knowledge may be honored, for in reality you are Knowledge. This is your True Self, but it is a Self that you are only now beginning to reclaim.
Practice 144: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly practice.
But I am trying. I at least have an inkling of the concept of my True Self and of the Knowledge that works through it, and I am attempting to nurture it, bring it into bolder relief, hold on to what is true and discard what is false.
I believe I am one of those who can tolerate the idea of receiving a greater authority and am beginning to claim my own.
P.S. Another year has passed, I revisit this Step on May 24, 2017 and once more open Secrets of Heaven: Secret 242: "Knowledge is far more powerful than you are personally. Therefore, you must prepare a place within your mind for Knowledge to emerge. It is not a plaything. Once its emergence has begun, it must continue."
P.P.S. May 24, 2018 Secrets of Heaven, p. 249: "The basis for true relationship is established at a deeper level where even two disimilar people find a basis for participation that cannot be destroyed by their divergent personalities."
