PRACTICE SUMMARY - Part II
Purpose: To take the last few steps to God. To wait for Him to take the final step.
Morning/Evening Quiet Time: as long as needed.
Read the written lesson.
Use idea and prayer to introduce time of quiet. Do not depend on the words. Use them as a simple invitation to God to come to you.
Sit silently and wait for God. Wait in quiet expectancy for Him to reveal Himself to you. Seek only direct, deep, wordless experience of Him. Be certain of His coming, and unafraid. For He has promised that when you invite Him, He will come. You ask only that He keep His ancient promise, which He wills to keep. These times are your gift to Him.
Hourly Remembrance: Do not forget.
Give thanks to God that He has remained with you and will always be there to answer your call to Him.
Frequent Reminder: As often as possible, even every minute.
Remember the idea. Dwell with God, let Him shine on you.
Response To Temptation: When you are tempted to forget your goal.
Use idea as a call to God and all temptation will disappear.
Reading: preceding one of the day's moments of practice.
Slowly read "What is...?" section.
Think about it a while.
Overall Remarks: Now, in this final part of the year that you and Jesus have spent together, you begin to reach the goal of practicing and of the course. Jesus is so close that you cannot fail. You have come far along the road. Do not look back. Fix you eyes on the journey's end. You could not have come this far without realizing that you want to know God. And this is all He requires to come to you.
