Step One Hundred and Four
God knows more about you than you do. Do not pretend you can create yourself, for you have already been created and that which has been genuinely created is far greater and happier than the life that you have realized thus far. It is your unhappiness that is bringing you to truth, for it is driving you to a genuine resolution. This, of course, is true.
On the hour repeat this statement and consider it seriously. As you do so, observe the world around you in order to attempt to learn of the meaning of today’s idea in the world.

"God has put Knowledge within you to guide you and to protect you and to lead you to a greater life and participation in the world. It resides beyond the realm and the reach of the intellect.
"It is happening at a deeper level. It is your deeper conscience that will tell you if you are living the life you know you must live.
"Here is an honesty so deep and so uncorrupted that it can restore to you the eyes to see and the ears to hear and the power and confidence to follow what is true, and to express what is true in the most constructive and beneficial ways so that others may be inspired and be reminded that they, too, have this deeper conscience within them waiting to be discovered. This is how God restores you and gives you clear eyes and freedom from the past. This is how God cleanses your mind and your heart, and shows you a way out of your dilemmas no matter how deep set they may seem to be. This is how God moves through your life and in your life.
"And it is only at this level that you will know for certain that God is with you and has never left you."
