Step 85

I find happiness in small things today.

YOU WILL FIND HAPPINESS IN SMALL THINGS because happiness is with you. You will find happiness in small things because you are learning to be still and observant. You will find happiness in small things because your mind is becoming receptive. You will experience happiness in small things because you are being present to your current circumstances. Small things can carry great messages if you are attentive to them. Then small things will not aggravate you.

A STILL MIND IS AN AWARE MIND. A still mind is a mind that is learning to be at peace. Peace is not a passive state. It is a state of the greatest activity, for it engages your life with great purpose and intensity, activating all of your powers and giving them uniform direction. This comes from peace. God is still, but everything from God is generated into constructive and uniform action. This is what gives form and direction to all meaningful relationships. This is why your Teachers are with you, for there is a Plan.

PRACTICE STILLNESS TWICE TODAY IN DEEP MEDITATION. State your lesson’s affirmation upon the hour and consider it briefly. Allow your day to be given to practice, so practice can infuse itself into all of your other activities.

Practice 85: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly practice.
