It takes a good bit of personal strength to get to where Steps to Knowledge wants to take me. It takes a certain ability to not care too much about what my culture thinks about things. So I experience a certain amount of comfort when I see something in Steps which I’ve seen before. And the something is an affirmation.
Affirmations have been around for a long time. In some Christian circles they are called “confessions” They have been a cultural fad, they have been culturally mocked to scorn. Some people have had more success with affirmations than others. Some people have a greater internal and external consistency with what they affirm. What am I being asked to affirm? “I have a wisdom that I wish to discover.” Out of all the affirmations in the world, this one is only found here. When I read this, I think “I wish to derive value from my errors, mistakes, wrong decisions and poor choices.” When I read this, I think, “I wish to experience the love of God which I’ve been told that I am.”
