Step Three Hundred and Fifty-Four


Step 354. I Must Experience My True Home While I Am In The World.
In your True Home you are happy, you are included, you are complete, you are in relationship, you are a complete participant, you are essential and you are meaningful. Your True Home is incomprehensible to you while you are in the world. In fact, your True Home will be incomprehensible to you until you have fully arrived at your True Home, until your Spiritual Family has rejoined all other Spiritual Families and all joining is complete in the universe.

Yet, even though your True Home is incomprehensible, do not think that it is beyond your reach. It is given you this day to experience your True Home, for you carry Knowledge within you. Your only limitation here is your capacity to experience and to express Knowledge. Yet, as you take each step and as you receive each step in your preparation, your capacity to experience relationship and communication grows. As you increasingly seek freedom from your own imagination and from your own isolated thinking, you experience your inclusion in life to an ever greater and greater degree. Thus, your evolution can be gauged in terms of your ever increasing capacity to experience relationship and communication and your ever increasing capacity to experience and express Knowledge. Thus, you are at home while you are in the world, for your True Home is growing within you in your own experience. The fire of Knowledge is growing more powerful, and its consuming benevolence is ever more evident as your mind becomes free, whole and directed.

Upon the hour remember this and return to your True Home in your deeper practice periods. You are at home in the world. Therefore, you can be at peace in the world.

June 10, 2014 Round One: I did not take a sneak preview of this step when I did the last, honest!

“as you take each step and as you receive each step in your preparation, your capacity to experience relationship and communication grows.”

I am experiencing this today. I tend to isolate, avoid communication, not because I am not sociable, just because it feels more comfortable that way. However, ever since I began Steps, I have been having the experience of communicating and connecting with others at a level that is empowering and inspirational, I am experiencing relationships with people who are feeling and experiencing the same things as I am, who are on the same wavelength, for want of a better way to describe it. As Knowledge opens up to me, I am opening up to relationship and communication with others, other students, my Teachers, my Spiritual Family, really feeling the connection and the input offered. I am happy to allow my True Home to be incomprehensible to me while I am in the world, knowing that as I grow in Knowledge and learn to express it, so shall my understanding of my True Home grow.

“Thus, you are at home while you are in the world, for your True Home is growing within you in your own experience.”

This says it.

August 1, 2015 Round Two: It seems like a paradox to me that I have become more isolated from the world, yet I feel greater inclusion, participation, communication and relationship than before. I am happy to accept that my True Home is incomprehensible to me while I am in the world. However, as I mentioned in the previous Step, what I am experiencing now in my current situation in the country is as close as I think I am going to get to experiencing my True Home while in the world. At least that is how it seems to me today.
