This is a record of my personal experience as I practice Steps to Knowledge for the second time. These Steps are contained in the book "Steps to Knowledge: The Book of Inner Knowing."
I also recommend reading "Taking the Steps to Knowledge."
You will find links to these texts in each journal entry below.

You are about to begin the final steps in our preparation.
These are not the final steps in your overall approach to Knowledge or in your
utilization and experience of Knowledge. Yet, they are the final steps in this
one great stage of development in which you are now engaged. Therefore, give
yourself to the next section of practice with increased desire and intensity.
Allow Knowledge to direct you in your participation. Allow yourself to be this
powerful, this strong and this involved. Do not think of your past, but realize
the reality of Knowledge in the moment and its great promise for the future.
You are honored who honor the source of your preparation. You are honored this
day as you begin the final steps in this essential stage of your development.
37. There Is A Way To Knowledge.How can there not be a way to Knowledge when it is your True Self? How
can there not be a way for Knowledge to express itself when it is the most
natural form of expression? How can there not be a way for Knowledge to guide
you in relationships when Knowledge is the perfect source of all your
relationships? There is a way to Knowledge. It requires skill and desire. Both
will take time to develop. You must learn to value the true and not to value
the false, and it takes time to learn to separate the two and to recognize
them. It takes time to learn that the false does not satisfy you and that the
true does satisfy you. This must be learned through trial and error and through
contrast. As you approach Knowledge, your life becomes more full, more certain
and more direct. As you go away from it, you reenter confusion, frustration and

Step 208. All Things I Truly Value Will Be
Expressed From Knowledge.All things that are most highly valued in human life— love, patience,
devotion, tolerance, forgiveness, true accomplishment, courage and faith—all
naturally arise from Knowledge, for Knowledge is their source. They are but the
outward expression of a mind that is serving Knowledge. Thus, they need not be
forced upon oneself through arduous self-discipline. They arise naturally, for
the mind serving Knowledge can only exemplify its own greatness and its own
capabilities. What requires self-discipline is to reorient your focus, to
reorient your devotion and to reorient your service. You either serve Knowledge
or you serve the substitutes for Knowledge, for in all things you must serve.
Upon the hour repeat this idea to yourself so that you may consider it
throughout the day. In your two deeper practice periods, engage your mind
actively to consider the depth of this idea. You must think constructively
here. Do not simpl…
Step 223. I Will
Receive Knowledge This Day.Upon the hour receive Knowledge. In your two deeper
practice periods, receive Knowledge. Give yourself to receiving Knowledge. This
is your practice for today. Everything else is merely a form of confusion.
There is no event in your outer life that need replace your practice today, for
Knowledge blesses all things within you and without. It dispels that which is
unnecessary and purposefully engages you with that which is necessary and has
true potential for you.
Return, then, to Knowledge, regardless of the circumstances of your outer life.
Receive Knowledge so that you may have certainty in the world and so that you
may understand your own meaning and value.
