Step 32

The truth is with me. I can feel it.

THE TRUTH IS WITH YOU. YOU CAN FEEL IT, and it can shine into your mind and into your emotions if you allow it to. Today continue your preparation in developing the desire for truth and the capability to experience truth.

IN YOUR TWO LONGER PRACTICE PERIODS, each of a 30-minute duration, sit quietly with your eyes closed, breathing deeply and regularly, attempting to feel the truth beyond the constant restlessness of your mind. Use your breath to take you deeper, for your breathing will always take you beyond your thoughts if you adhere yourself to it conscientiously. Let nothing distract or dissuade you. If something permeates your mind and you have difficulty releasing it, tell yourself that you will look at it a little later, but that right now you are taking a small vacation from your mind. Practice feeling the truth. Do not think the truth. Practice feeling the truth.

Practice 32: Two 30-minute practice periods.
