Step Two Hundred and Twenty-Six
Today practice abiding with Knowledge, which will undo all the habits that have cast themselves against you and the world. Being in life is practice and is always a form of service. Today practice the truth and serve the truth, and in this all errors are weakened. Their foundation is removed, and in its place you will begin to learn a new way of being in the world, a new way of engaging yourself with the world, and you will have a greater structure for applying your mental and physical faculties.
Upon the hour abide with Knowledge. Dispel fear and remind yourself that Knowledge is with you. Remind yourself that your Teachers are with you. Remind yourself that students everywhere who are involved in the reclamation of Knowledge are with you. In this, the world will become small and you will become great. In your deeper practices, allow yourself the freedom of experiencing Knowledge. Enter the great depth and stillness of the mind, as it immerses itself into the presence of love.
Practice 226: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly practice.
I am also letting go of the fear that prevents me from fully embracing and reclaiming Knowledge. I am not afraid of what I know, of what Knowledge is telling me, I am overcoming my doubts about its truth. I wish to serve the truth, and I take immense joy in knowing that students everywhere who are involved in the reclamation of Knowledge are with me. They, along with my growing awareness of the presence of my Teachers, bring me the greatest confidence this day and reinforce for me the Power and Presence of Knowledge.
I recalled a passage from a revelation called The Separation in the context of this Step:
"Knowledge within you is without fear. It is not corrupted by the world. It represents the eternal part of you that is going to live beyond this world. But it is concerned that you may fulfill your destiny here, and to that end it works ceaselessly on your behalf, trying to orient you through many different means to follow a true direction, to stick with that direction and to not lose heart or be pulled off track by beauty, wealth and charm or by despair and anguish.
