Step Two Hundred and One

Step 201. My Mind Was Made To Serve Knowledge.
Understanding this, you will realize the value of your mind, and you will not deprecate it. Realizing this, you will understand the value of your body, and you will not deprecate it. For your mind and your body are but vehicles to express Knowledge. In this, you become the recipient of Knowledge. In this, you remember your great Heritage. In this, you are comforted by the assurance of your great destiny.

There is no illusion here. There is no self-deception here. Here all things find their right order. Here you understand the true proportion of all things. Here you understand the value of your mind, and you will not want to give it tasks of which it is not capable. Thus, your mind becomes constructively applied and will be unburdened with attempting the impossible. Realizing this, you will see that your body is made to serve your mind, and you will understand the value of your body and its great application as a tool for communication. In this, you will accept its limitations, for limited it must be. You will also appreciate its mechanism. You will appreciate all of the encounters that you have with other individuals in this world. You will be glad, then, that you have a mind and a body so that you may communicate the power and the essence of Knowledge.

Repeat your idea for today upon the hour and consider it. In your two deeper meditation practices, allow your mind to become still so that it may learn to serve. You must relearn that which is natural to you, for you have learned the unnatural, which must now be unlearned. In its place the natural will be stimulated, for when the natural is stimulated, it becomes expressed. Then the mind re-engages with its true function, and all things find their true value.

October 10, 2013 Round One: I am finding that if I just keep moving on, not analyzing too much, not allowing myself to get stuck in a rut of negative thinking, but just doing the next right (I hope) thing, life continues to flow and I skip lightly over its surface. I appreciate my mind and body today, glad that they are vehicles for communicating the power and the essence of Knowledge, and certain that all things find their true value. I hold this to be true.

February 19, 2015 Round Two: The mind is mysterious in and of itself and I really do not have the foggiest about how it is made to serve Knowledge. I will trust this though and do my best to make my body and mind vehicles for expressing Knowledge. Since I am here on the physical plane and in a body that comes with a mind, I guess I have no other choice. I cannot say I have a clear understanding of it all though. I am just willing to approach everything with a certain level of trust.
