Step Three Hundred and Sixty-Four
As you carry Knowledge, you will feel Knowledge carrying you. You will feel Knowledge guiding you and directing you, preserving you, protecting you from harm, keeping you from difficult and harmful engagements, engaging you with individuals with whom you must be engaged and leading you away from divisive engagements which do not have purpose. Thus it is that you become a leader and a follower, for you follow Knowledge and you lead yourself. You yield to Knowledge, yet you exercise the power of decision upon your own behalf. Thus it is that you become a great follower and a great leader. Thus, you are in a position to serve, and you will increasingly feel as if Knowledge were carrying you through life. And you will feel that you are carrying Knowledge as well. Seen correctly, you will realize your true relationship to Knowledge. You will realize that you carry Knowledge within you and that Knowledge carries your well-being within itself. This is perfectly complementary. It is perfect because it is born of perfection itself.
Be a true student of Knowledge. Engage yourself in practice. Give yourself in practice. Do not alter your practice. Do not neglect your practice. All you need to do is practice and be attentive, practice and be attentive. Upon the hour and in your two deeper meditation practices, where you come into stillness to be with stillness itself, practice to practice, practice to learn and learn to learn. Today you are learning to learn. Today you are a student of Knowledge.

This is what I am striving to do.
I am glad I am not stressing about work anymore. I am just doing what I can every day and enjoying Greg’s visit. The best part is getting out to jog and swim every morning. That energizes me for the whole day.
Claire is reaching out again. That makes me very happy.
My overwhelming feeling today is that all is flowing as it should, things are in perfect order, and I am going with the flow, being buoyed along by Knowledge. This is the only way.
I wish to be that gentle green meadow with a softly flowing river where weary travelers can find a moment’s rest. This is my true desire.
