Step One Hundred and Sixty-Two
Step 162. I Will Not Be Afraid Today.
Remind yourself upon the hour not to let fear overtake you. When you begin to feel its effects, in whatever manner that it exerts its influence upon you, withdraw from it and claim your allegiance to Knowledge. Give your confidence to Knowledge. In your two deeper practice periods today, give yourself to Knowledge. Give your mind and your heart so that you may be strengthened in that certainty where fear can never enter. Your fearlessness in the future must not be born of pretense, but born of your certainty in Knowledge. In this way, you will be a refuge of peace and a source of wealth for others. This is what you are meant to be. This is why you have come into the world.
Practice 162: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly practice.
All I can say today is that I feel a deeper sense of peace, a stronger feeling that, no matter what, I can take whatever life throws my way, a deeper certainty in my ability to handle it, a more confident knowing that Knowledge is with me and that I am learning to be with it.
