Step 218

I will hold Knowledge within myself today.


ALONG WITH KNOWLEDGE COMES THE WISDOM of how to use Knowledge in the world. Thus, Knowledge is the source of your understanding and Wisdom is learning how to apply it meaningfully and constructively in the world. You are not yet wise, so keep Knowledge within yourself today. Allow it to strengthen itself. Allow it to grow. It will give itself naturally, without your attempting to force its expression. In time, you will learn to become wise, both through the demonstration of Knowledge and through your own errors. You have already committed a sufficient number of errors to demonstrate all that we are telling you.

KEEP KNOWLEDGE WITHIN YOURSELF TODAY so that it may grow strong within you. Allow yourself to extend its presence to only one or two individuals whom you recognize can appreciate it, for your awareness of Knowledge is still a tender shoot within you and cannot yet withstand the vicissitudes of this world. It has not grown strong enough in your own understanding to counteract the raging fear and hatred that sweep across the world. Knowledge can withstand this without difficulty, but you who are learning to become a recipient and a vehicle for Knowledge are not yet strong enough.

ALLOW KNOWLEDGE TO BE KEPT WITHIN YOU TODAY so that it may grow. Remind yourself of this upon the hour as you carry this jewel within your heart. In your deeper practice periods, which are times of freedom from limitation for you, allow yourself to return to your great love so that you may enter into true relationship with Knowledge. In time, all limitations to the expression of Knowledge will be lifted as you learn to wisely apply its communication in the world. But for now, keep Knowledge within your heart so that it may grow stronger and stronger.

Practice 218: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly practice.
