Step One Hundred and Forty-Three

Step 143. Today I Will Be Still.
Be still today in your two meditation practices so that you may receive the presence of Knowledge within you. Take a moment of stillness in your hourly practice so that you may recognize where you are and what you are doing. In this way, you may access the greater aspect of mind so that it may serve you upon each hour so that you may carry it forth into the world. Be still today so that you may observe the world. Be still today so that you may see the world. Be still today so that you may hear the world. Carry forth your daily duties, but within yourself be still. In this way, Knowledge will present itself and then will begin to guide you as it is intended to do.

Practice 143: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly practice.

May 21, 2013 Round One: In Stillness all can be known. I am becoming more and more aware and conscious of this. Practicing stillness is becoming part of my daily experience of living, it gives me confidence, and I am following its lead.

December 15, 2014 Round Two: Being still and observing, seeing, and hearing the world is not something that can easily be described in words. It is possible to see and hear things with my inner senses when I am still enough. But this takes a lot of practice and dedication, it is so easy to miss the signs or misinterpret them. To really hear what the world is telling me, what my loved ones are telling me, takes deep concentration and application. I am not there yet.
