Step 224. Review
Allow your review practice period today to be engaged on your own behalf. Utilize your mind purposefully and do not allow it to wander. Break the habit of thinking mindlessly. Break the habit of preoccupying yourself with foolish and meaningless things. Allow your Review today to demonstrate to you that you are a true student of Knowledge.
Practice 224: One long practice period.
March 16, 2015 Round Two: Again this second time, I am happy with my practice and feel as though I am becoming ever firmly grounded in Knowledge. I have a more expansive vision of everything – myself and the world around me. I realize I am more than my body and my personal mind, that these are things I have temporarily donned for convenience while navigating this environment. But there is far more beyond, there is a spiritual presence of which I am a part. I realize that in my present mode of existence I cannot understand everything and there is no point even trying to analyze. I surrender to the mystery, everything is possible, or to put it another way, nothing is impossible. I can play an active and vital part in shaping the evolution of the Universe if I shed my judgments, assumptions, hackneyed beliefs, old worn-out stereotypes, and narrow views. There are vast expanses to be explored, and I don’t mean just in the physical sense, but in the mental and spiritual too. I just need to remain open, teachable, ready for every eventuality and prepared to take action when needed. I am not wandering aimlessly around, I have a purpose, destiny and direction. And I am not alone in this.
