14. When you are aware of a symptom, take the following steps:

A. Recognize that it is an adaptation by spirit to keep you in balance, therefore to be accepted with gratitude.

B. Be free to experience the symptom as long as it may be necessary--(not to just get rid of it).

C. Since the symptom is a service to you, cooperate with Spirit by consciously attempting to double the sensation.

15. Count how many times you compare yourself to other people or your conditions with the conditions of others.

16. Count how many times you think--or say--"Ought to, should, have to, need to, got to" and replace it with COULD and WANT TO.

10. See how many things or people you have two or more feelings about.

11. When you find yourself re-acting to a situation, emotionally resisting what is going on, take the following three steps-- and be sure to take the first one.

A.  "I am free to experience  what is happening. Since I am going to experience it anyway, I will choose  to experience it freely."

B. "I am also free to feel the way I am feeling about it. To be sure that I am free to feel this, I will double the feeling consciously, on purpose, just because I want to".

C. "I am now free to choose (change) my response to anyone I desire, so I will choose a response which is truly to my advantage."

12. When you find yourself disturbed about what has happened, is happening, or is going to happen, recognize that you are listening to the Suggestor who gets his nourishment from human misery and his excitement out of being a sneak--controlling people without getting caught. Be very polite and firm, without arguing or resisting him, by saying "Good evening Mr. Lucifer, now you go back to hell where you belong. Go on now!" (Remember he is likely to be right back for a few times until he gets a little discouraged for the time being.)

13. Since we want to be full of grace, and grace is "undeserved good", see how many people you can "underserved good" to in the next 24 hours.

1. Watch without judging your acting out decision #           . Then act it out consciously, at least once.

2. Watch your body movements while about various actions of everyday living. Be aware that you determine the "what" and "X" determines the "how".

3. Watch others, without judging, act out the basic decisions. 

4. Read the daily paper and apply agape to each story that you feel a reaction about.

5. Observe today the situations you react to. Do it freely today. Next day just observe these situations and don't react. See what happens. 

6. Drop the image of husband or wife in the trash and replace by seeing the person, without the image of man or woman. Same for children.

7. Observe the conditioned responses, and conditioned wants with out identifying them with self.

8. Observe as much as possible through the next 24 hours. "What does this remind me of?" (Talk of thinking by association and living by decisions -- Danger of deciding not to think about something).

9. Watch how much we identify with others, images we make of self and others.

From Gibson notes

VIRTUE

If I must not do something because it is wrong --- and I don't do it because I think it is wrong --- I have no virtue.

When I know that I am free to, yet I realize that it is not to my advantage, I have virtue. 

All beliefs are based on the idea that you are not free to ----.

False beliefs take away awareness.

From Notes (excerpt)

Before you can be in charge of anything, you must be FREE TO.......If I am trying to be free from something, I am trying to alter my nature. I am free to have any experience which is presented to me to experience. If I try to be free from anything, I am trying to change myself.
