Step 17 of Steps to Knowledge, “Today I want to hear the truth,” is the third step so far to have the word “today” in it. It was previously encountered in Step 8, “Today I will be still” and Step 15, “I will listen to my experience today.” I mention this because I believe that what is meant by the word “today” is not “today and only today,” but “today and every day from now on.” But my mind is more comfortable at the thought of “today” as “today and today only.”
Some people might consider this step and say “Well, of course I want to hear the truth.” But this is more than just all the propositions that are true. What if the truth was that you needed to leave your job? What if the truth was that you needed to get into a different line of work? What if the truth was that you needed to leave where you lived, and move to a large city, 1,800 miles away?
What if the truth was that you are not the person you have imagined yourself to be? What if the truth was that you were a much better person than the person you have imagined yourself to be? There would be a certain degree of shock to discover that.
