Step One Hundred and Forty-Two

Step 142. I Will Be Consistent Today.
Practice consistently today regardless of what is occurring within you or without. This consistency represents a Greater Power within you. This consistency will give you certainty and stability in the face of all disturbances, in the face of all external events and in the face of all emotional states within you. This consistency will stabilize and balance you and in time will bring everything into right order within you. You practice consistency so that you may learn it and experience it. As you do this, it will bestow upon you the empowerment that you will need to be a contributor in this world.

Therefore, today practice consistently. Practice upon the hour, reminding yourself to be consistent. In your two meditations, practice keeping your mind steady and focused, allowing it to settle into itself so that it may experience its own nature. Do not repress what is occurring within you. Do not control what is occurring without. Simply maintain consistency, and all things will find a right balance and relationship to this. Thus, you are bringing forth Knowledge into the world, for Knowledge is entirely consistent. This will render you a person of great presence and power. Others will come to experience your consistency in time as it is more fully received by you and more fully developed. They will find refuge in your consistency, and this will remind them of their purpose as well, which waits to be discovered.

Practice 142:
Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly practice.

May 20, 2013 Round One: I am practicing consistency, and it is working! I can feel how things are becoming stabilized and balanced, and I am reaching a level that feels just right. Things are going on as usual in the world around me, my emotional state changes, as it will, but still I feel some strong anchor within, a grounding that comes from some deeper place.

December 14, 2014 Round Two: This feeling of grounding and consistency is growing stronger. Today provided me with confirmation. I was consciously aware of practicing consistency in my tasks today and I reaped the benefits. It was a day that flowed with perfect synchronicity. Also I am finding I can keep better tabs on my emotions. The strong core I feel within prevents me from allowing my emotions to sweep me away. I can be consistent regardless of my emotional state. This is potent, this is empowering, this gives structure and substance to my life. I am becoming more consciously aware of this deeper part of me where Knowledge resides.  

Tom, another responder and long-time student of Steps to Knowledge, shares on this Step in his blog "Steps2Know":

"Empowerment is promised in Step 142. Let’s work towards that."
