Step Two Hundred and Twenty-Four

Pawanda Beach, Bali, Indonesia

Step 224. Review
Today practice objectivity by reviewing the last two weeks of practice. Once again, read each lesson for the day and recall your practice for that day. Begin with the first practice of the two-week period, and then follow each day step by step. Strengthen your ability to observe your progress objectively. See what happens on days when you are strong with practice and on days when you are weak. Imagine for a moment as you do this that you are looking through the eyes of your Teachers who are watching your life from far above. They are without condemnation. They are merely taking note of your strengths and weaknesses, strengthening the former and minimizing the effects of the latter. As you learn to view your life objectively, you will learn to see your life through the eyes of your Teachers. This is looking with Knowledge. This is looking without judgment. Given this, the mind becomes a vehicle for Knowledge, and Knowledge will bestow upon you all the ideas and the activities that are truly beneficial for you.

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.

: One long practice period.

December 7, 2013 Round One: This review has reinforced my happiness with my practice. I am on a lifetime journey that is urging me ever onward to embrace the mystery. Of course, I am confused and do not understand, but the world around, I often feel, is in a much more confused and misunderstanding state, so I am happy that I am at a place with a better view. Things are becoming clearer, the mists are parting, the veils dropping, and what I am beginning to see is magnificent indeed. I am entering further into the deeper mind, the mind of Knowledge, and allowing myself to receive it and follow its guidance. Life flows, life is dynamic, life is harmonious, I go about my daily business with a smile on my lips, joy in my heart, and a melody deep in my soul.

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.
