Step 111

Today I will be at ease.

BE AT EASE TODAY KNOWING THAT KNOWLEDGE IS WITH YOU, knowing that your Teachers are with you and knowing that your Spiritual Family is with you. Let not anxieties or the burden of concern take you away from your practice today.

AS YOU MOVE THROUGH THE DAY, practicing upon the hour, remind yourself to be at ease, for Knowledge is your guide now. If it is untroubled, you need not be troubled. Release yourself from habitual preoccupations, from habitual bondage. Strengthen your resolve to do this and it will become easier in time. Then it will happen all by itself most naturally. Your mind has habits of thought. That is all they are. As they are replaced with new habits, Knowledge will begin to shine through the structure that you have imposed upon it. Here Knowledge will begin to shine forth, to guide your actions, to lead you to insight and important discovery and to give you a greater strength and certainty than you have ever known.

IN YOUR HOURLY PRACTICES, therefore, utilize your self-discipline on your own behalf. In your two meditation practices, remain very alert but with a still mind.

Practice 111: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly practice.
