Step Two Hundred and Sixty
Be a friend of the world today, for you have come to be a friend of the world. The world is in great need. It is demonstrating great confusion and error, and yet you have come to be a friend of the world because the world needs your friendship. In this, you receive a greater reward than anything you could secure for yourself alone, for anything you secure for yourself alone you must take from life. Yet, anything you give and receive as a friend to the world, life gives to you, and it does not lose in the exchange. Then, there is no guilt in your giving and in your receiving. Here your involvement is wholesome and clean. With Knowledge this becomes evident and is demonstrated day after day until you finally learn that it is true without exception.
Upon the hour be a friend to the world. Recognize that all anger comes from confusion and that Knowledge is emerging now to resolve all confusion. As a result, your life is now engaged with true resolution and not with compounding the world’s predicament. Your life is about resolution and not predicament. Be a friend to the world. In your two deeper practice periods in stillness, give yourself to being a friend to the world, for this will ease the world’s confusion. As you learn to give this with Wisdom and discernment, you will allow the world to become a friend to you, for the world wishes to become your friend as well.
