This is a record of my personal experience as I practice Steps to Knowledge for the second time. These Steps are contained in the book "Steps to Knowledge: The Book of Inner Knowing."
I also recommend reading "Taking the Steps to Knowledge."
You will find links to these texts in each journal entry below.

You are about to begin the final steps in our preparation.
These are not the final steps in your overall approach to Knowledge or in your
utilization and experience of Knowledge. Yet, they are the final steps in this
one great stage of development in which you are now engaged. Therefore, give
yourself to the next section of practice with increased desire and intensity.
Allow Knowledge to direct you in your participation. Allow yourself to be this
powerful, this strong and this involved. Do not think of your past, but realize
the reality of Knowledge in the moment and its great promise for the future.
You are honored who honor the source of your preparation. You are honored this
day as you begin the final steps in this essential stage of your development.
155. The World Blesses Me As I Receive.You are learning now to receive. The world blesses you as you learn to
receive, for Knowledge will flow into you as you become an open receptacle for
Knowledge. And you will draw that which is life into yourself, for life is
always attracted to those who give.
Understand this in its full depth this day as you remind yourself upon the hour
that life gives to you as you are still. In your two meditation practices,
enter stillness once again and feel life being drawn into you. This is a
natural attraction. As your giving and stillness become greater, you will feel
life being drawn into you, for you will in time become a source of nourishment

164. Today I Will Honor What I Know. Honor what you know today.
Hold to what you know. Allow your Knowledge to guide you specifically. Do not
try to use Knowledge to fulfill yourself, for in this you will only use what
you think of as Knowledge and once again you will weave an illusion for yourself
that will entrap you and drain you of life, enthusiasm and certainty. Let
Knowledge move you today. Carry on your normal activities. Follow all the
procedures of life that are your duty, but let Knowledge abide with you so that
it may bestow its mysterious gift everywhere you go and give you concrete
direction when that is actually needed.
Repeat this statement upon the hour and consider it in light of your immediate
circumstances. In your deeper practice periods today, once again give yourself
to stillness and to peace. Honor Knowledge today by giving yourself to
Knowledge and by abiding with Knowledge. Practice 164:Two 30-minute practice

121. Today I Am Free To Give.You are free to give today because your life is becoming simple and your
needs are being met. This frees you to give, for once you have received, you
will only want to give.
You will have a special practice two times today where you are to think of
someone in need and then give them a quality that you wish to receive yourself.
Send that individual that quality. Send them love or strength or faith or
encouragement or determination or surrender or acceptance or
self-discipline—whatever they need to bring about resolution in their lives.
You are free to give this today, for your own needs are being met.
Therefore, in each of your two practices, with your eyes closed, bring to mind
individuals and give to them what you know they need. Do not try to solve their
problems for them. Do not try to strengthen a preferred outcome, for you cannot
usually know the right outcome for any other person. But you can always give
strength of character and strengthen thei…
