EVERY DAY, NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE, no matter where you go, the presence of your Teachers is with you. This idea is to remind you that you are not alone. This idea is to give you an opportunity to come out of the isolation of your own imagination and to experience this presence and to receive the gift of this presence. In this gift, your Teachers will give to you the ideas and inspiration that you need. In this, you will express what you have received and thus confirm what you have received.
PRACTICE REMEMBERING THIS UPON THE HOUR by once again concentrating on the presence that is with you. You need only relax to feel it, for it is most certainly with you. In your deeper practices, once again enter stillness in the sanctuary of Knowledge so that you may receive this presence and the great confirmation and comfort that it gives to you. Allow yourself to leave self-doubt and the sense of unworthiness aside, for these things will be consumed in the fire of Knowledge and purified from your mind. When this is done, you will not need to give yourself grandiose ideas of yourself. You will not need to misrepresent yourself in the attempt to escape your sense of guilt and inadequacy, for guilt and inadequacy are consumed in the fire of Knowledge. Therefore, bring all that obstructs your participation and all fears that haunt and oppress you to the fire of Knowledge so that they may be consumed. You will sit in front of this fire, and you will see them being consumed, and you will feel your mind being bathed and cleansed in the loving fire of Knowledge. The presence is with you every day. The fire of Knowledge is with you every day.
