Steps to KnowledgeThe Book of Inner Knowing

Step 15

I shall listen to my experience today.

TODAY I WILL LISTEN TO MY EXPERIENCE to find out the content of my mind.

REALIZE THAT THE TRUE CONTENT OF YOUR MIND is buried beneath all that you have added since the day you were born. This true content wishes to express itself in the context of your current life and current situation. To discern this you must listen carefully and in time realize the difference between the true content of your mind and its messages for you and all the other impulses and wishes that you feel. To separate thoughts from Knowledge is one of the great accomplishments which you will have an opportunity to learn in this course.

THE ONE PRACTICE TODAY OF 45 MINUTES will be devoted to inner listening. This will require that you listen without judgment of yourself, even if the content of your thoughts is disturbing. Even if the content of your thoughts is disagreeable, you must listen without judgment to allow your mind to open. You are listening for something deeper than the mind, but you must go through the mind to get there.

Practice 15: One 45-minute practice period.
