Step Three Hundred and Thirty-Five
Today you take a major step in this direction by remembering and experiencing the fire of Knowledge upon the hour. In your two deeper practice periods re-enter the fire of Knowledge in the sanctuary of Knowledge. Remember that this fire will comfort you and release you. It will not burn you but will only warm your soul. It will give you comfort and reassurance. It will give you confirmation of the meaning and the purpose of your life and of the greatness that you carry within you.
Do not neglect your practice today, but realize its total benefit to you. Nothing you can see in the world can possibly give you the certainty, the power, the peace and the sense of inclusion that the fire of Knowledge can bestow. Nothing can remind you of your total inclusion in life more than the presence of your Teachers who abide with you. Therefore, you have the experience that you need already, and from this experience you will learn in time to extend it to all your relationships—with others, with the world and with the Greater Community of Worlds in which you live.

I am striving wholeheartedly for this, although it is not easy. This has been a hard day. It seems as though bringing the things that haunt and oppress me to the fire of Knowledge has opened up a can of worms and I am being shown again how arrogant I am. I feel as though I just don’t get it, am making it all up when I say or think I am progressing, and I am right back at square one with all my petty, selfish thoughts.
