Step Two Hundred and Fifty-Two
"There is One Great Truth on This Planet"
You will learn in time that as you come closer to Knowledge, all things that are meaningful and valuable will be affirmed, and as you go away from Knowledge, you will enter the darkness of your own imagination. This, then, will convince you of where you need to apply yourself. This will convince you of the great presence that is with you to assist you. This will convince you that you are included in life and that your Teachers are with you. Whatever obstacle or inadequacy that you can recognize or imagine can be easily overcome with Knowledge. It is your desire for Knowledge and your capacity for Knowledge that need to be strengthened. And once this is done, Knowledge will express itself and you will be the beneficiary of life’s greatest gift.
In your longer review today, allow yourself to undertake your practice with great depth and sincerity. Allow this day to affirm your studenthood. Allow this day to affirm that you have been saved.

I am becoming more and more present to this sentence in the review:
My desire for Knowledge and my capacity for Knowledge are being strengthened. I can affirm this today.
2) Error is committed through ignorance, and ignorance is merely a sign of insufficient enlightenment, a stage along the way. We will all get there eventually.
2) An inner state of wellbeing, comfort and joy tells me my teachers are with me, surrounding me with love and support, guiding me.
I understand this to mean primary relationships, intimate relationships, life-mate relationships, but I am applying it to all people. I changed my primary partner. I was with my first husband as long as it served both of us, then it was time to change. Our paths went different ways. I chose another partner, an unlikely match, but it has worked, we are still together after 25 years and I am still learning and growing from the experience. I know I need to be with him. I also know not to pursue certain relationships with people who asked for help, I feel I cannot help them in the way they are asking, they drain my energy, I do not feel vitalized by my communication, it is drab and forced. I feel drawn to many people in the New Message community. I feel I am beginning to be discerning in whom I choose to have relationships with.
