Step 99

I will not blame the world today.

TODAY PRACTICE NOT BLAMING THE WORLD, not judging its obvious errors and not claiming or giving responsibility to others for these errors as well. Look on the world silently. Allow your mind to be still.

PRACTICE THIS UPON THE HOUR and view the world with your eyes open. In your two longer practice periods, also practice with eyes open looking upon the world. It does not matter what you look at, for it is all the same. Your concentration today will be to look without judgment, for this will develop your real faculties of mind.

THEREFORE, IN YOUR PRACTICE PERIODS, practice looking with your eyes open, looking without judging. Look about your immediate environment. Look only upon things that are actually there. Do not engage in imagination. Do not let your thoughts wander to the past or to the future. Witness only what is there. As thoughts arise that are judgments, simply dismiss them without considering them, for today you are practicing seeing—seeing without judgment so that you may see what is actually there.

Practice 99: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly practice.
