Step Two Hundred and Five
Do not blame the world today. Do not judge the world today. Allow your mind to be still as you look upon it. Knowledge about the world arises gradually. It arises naturally. An idea may speak of it, but an idea cannot contain it. Knowledge represents an overall shift in your viewpoint, an overall change in your experience, an overall shift in your emphasis and an overall transformation of your value system. This is the evidence of Knowledge.
Do not blame the world today. It is blameless, for it is merely demonstrating that Knowledge is not being adhered to. What else can it do but commit error and folly? What else can it do but waste its great resources? Humanity can only be in error without Knowledge. It can only create fantasy. It can only engage in loss. Therefore, it does not deserve condemnation. It deserves the application of Knowledge.
Practice upon the hour not blaming the world. Do not let hours pass without your involvement. Give this day to serve the world in this way, for without your condemnation your love for the world will naturally arise and be expressed. In your two deeper practice periods, allow your mind to enter stillness. Without blame and judgment, stillness becomes accessible because it is natural. Without the imposition of your condemnation, your mind is allowed to be still. In stillness there is no blame or judgment. In stillness love will flow from you in all directions and will continue far beyond what you can perceive through your senses.
