Step 72

I will trust my deepest inclinations today.

TRUST YOUR DEEPEST INCLINATIONS for they are trustworthy, but you must learn to discern them and distinguish them from the many other desires, compulsions and wishes that you feel and that affect you. You can only learn this through experience. You can learn this because your deepest inclinations always lead you into meaningful relationships and away from isolation or divisive engagements. You must practice this to learn it, and it will take time, but every step you make in this direction will bring you closer to the source of love in your life and will demonstrate to you the Greater Power that abides with you which you must serve and which you must learn to receive.

IN YOUR TWO PRACTICE PERIODS TODAY, in silence and in stillness, receive this Greater Power and trust your deepest inclinations as you do so. Allow yourself to give these two practice periods your full attention, putting all other things aside for later consideration. Allow yourself to recognize your deepest inclinations, which you must learn to trust.

Practice 72: Two 30-minute practice periods.
