Step One Hundred and Eighty-Five

Step 185. I Have Come Into The World For A Purpose.
Again we affirm this great truth, which in your Knowledge you will know to be true. Regardless of your current stage of personal development, the reality of your purpose in life remains true. Therefore, from time to time we repeat certain lessons that are essential for your well-being and development. We give them different wording from time to time so that you may have a greater and greater experience of them. In this way, they may find their way into your heart so that your heart may find its way into your consciousness.

You are here to serve. You are here to give. You are here because you are rich with Knowledge. Regardless of your circumstance in life, your own sense of poverty will be banished forever as Knowledge arises within you, for there can be no sense of deprivation when Knowledge is being experienced and expressed. This is the promise of this program of preparation. This is the promise of your life. This is your destiny and your mission here. From this, your specific calling in the world will be given to you. It will be quite specific to your activities and behavior. Before this can happen, your mind must be cultivated, and your life must be rearranged and brought into genuine balance so that it may reflect your Knowledge and not your fears and wishes only. A greater life must come from a Greater Source within you. A greater life is made possible for you now.

You are here to serve, but to serve you must receive. In your longer practice periods today, practice receptivity. Go deeper in your practice of stillness. Cultivate this practice. You are now learning the specific skills that will help you to do this. When your will is being experienced, the methods will follow naturally. We give only so much methodology as is necessary to aim your mind in the proper direction. From here you can refine your practice to meet your needs without betraying the instructions that are given in this course.

Therefore, follow the directions that are given and make minor adjustments as necessary. When you learn to work with your nature, you will learn to utilize it on your own behalf. Practice upon the hour so that your practice may go with you everywhere and so that everything that happens to you today may be a part of your practice.

August 24, 2013 Round One: This Step is reminding me that I am here for a purpose. I like being reminded and I particularly like being reminded that the reality of my purpose is true regardless of my current stage of personal development. I do not have to be some advanced guru or have some “n” amount of wisdom to have a purpose in this world. I can still serve from the small place I am at, I am still "rich with Knowledge." As long as I keep the avenues of my mind open to Knowledge, it will arise within in me and I can experience and express it. How empowering and inspiring! I embrace what this Step promises and am ready to receive my calling.

February 3, 2015 Round Two: I am not poor. I have a purpose here in the world. And it will become clear to me as I continue to follow Knowledge and discover the Greater Reality within me.
