Step Three Hundred and Thirty-Six
Stanka Kordic - Truth and Knowledge
Step 336. Review
Begin your two-week review by reviewing the first lesson in this two-week period, rereading the lesson and recalling your practice for that day. Follow this subsequently for each following day. Review your practice. Realize what your practice is for and recognize what your practice is reinforcing within you. Recognize how much you want this reinforcement to occur and realize the tremendous value that you are receiving and are attempting to receive as you prepare as a student of Knowledge. Let your review today be a confirmation of the importance of your preparation. Recognize how much you need to strengthen your participation and how much you need to set aside ideas that are debilitating or that deny the existence of Knowledge within your life. Remember that Knowledge is with you and that your Teachers are with you, to be experienced and received every moment. As you learn to receive this, you will naturally express this.
In your one long practice period today, review the past two weeks of practice and realize what is being offered to you. Realize how much you need to receive. Realize how much you want to receive.
Practice 336: One long practice period.
Well, here is my answer to yesterday’s slump.
Something has shifted in me, Knowledge is growing stronger, I am seeing myself and the world around me in a different way, I am taking Knowledge as my guide rather than allowing the inconstant ways of the world to buffet me and influence me. I am becoming increasingly aware that there is a stronger fulcrum, something more constant, truer, purer and incorrupt that is guiding me.
This review has confirmed the importance of my preparation, the daily presence of my Teachers, the presence of Knowledge in my life. I am open to receiving this and taking setbacks as par for the course, ever aware, nevertheless, that I am committed to continuing my climb up the mountain.
As I read the review today, it struck me differently. The words “confirmation of your preparation” and “realize how much you need to receive” struck me more personally.
That’s the thing – people are seeking meaning and purpose, so they cling to whatever rings some bell of recognition for them. I don’t feel I am seeking meaning, so the bell of recognition is not some lifeline extended to save me, but a legitimate “next step” in the chain of evolution. Doing what I am doing now is necessary for my evolution and the evolution of the rest of the planet, for I am part of the whole and what I do to advance myself, advances the whole. So yes, I truly do wish to receive and I confirm the importance of my preparation, because this is what is required of human beings, of the human race. My practice is reinforcing in me the recognition that I need to do this for the sake of human evolution.
Step 323. My role in the world is too important to neglect.
