Step 58 of Steps to Knowledge, “Knowledge is with me,” is the first step in Steps to Knowledge to repeat a portion of a Step. In Step 1, “I am without Knowledge now,” we are told,
“You start here in the understanding that you are without Knowledge. That is not to say that Knowledge is not with you. It is simply to say that you are not with Knowledge.”
Step 2, “Knowledge is with me. Where am I?” is the step that Step 58 is partially repeating. We are told Knowledge is in a part of the mind we have not yet learned to access.
In the big Step 49 review, the phrase “Knowledge is with you” is used as a sort of benediction upon the efforts of the student:
“You have come this far. Congratulations! You have passed the first test. Be encouraged now to proceed, for Knowledge is with you.”
Knowledge is with me
And here we are now at Step 58. The previous step was Step 57, “Freedom is with me,” and therefore I get the idea that part of the point of the Step is building a connection between freedom and Knowledge.
Step 58 is the first step since Step 31 “I wish to see a world I have never seen before,” where the only practice is a brief, hourly practice. Another part of the point of Step 58 is to teach the idea that I can practice just about anywhere.
What kind of bridge has been built so far, between where I normally live and where Knowledge abides, in the time between Step 2 and Step 58? I don’t recall having any remarkable experiences of Knowledge during this time. I had a happy feeling of demonstrating to myself a certain degree of seriousness as a student. I had a happy feeling that I was following the directions to the best of my ability.
