"God’s intelligence, a deeper mind within you."[1]

"It is born of God. It is God's Will within you. It is your True Self." [2]

"The greater intelligence that God has placed within each person as a potential."[1]

"Knowledge is not only intuition or certain kinds of urges or feelings or sensations or insights or recollections or premonitions— it is a living Spiritual Presence within you, the Mind behind the mind, the Spirit within the mind, a Spirit that is not an individual, but a Spirit that is flowing through you as an individual, a Greater Power expressing itself. It is not yours to own and claim, it is not your private domain or private property, and it is not your little section of Heaven. Instead, it is a great and abiding Spiritual Presence that passes through you and abides with you." [3]

"In the Greater Community, Knowledge is the essence and substance of all religious experience. It transcends the expressions of this experience in terms of theology, devotional ritual and spiritual practices, which vary considerably from one world to another world. However, the essence of spirituality—the motivating factor in religion, the real call of religious experience—is Knowledge.”[4]

"Knowledge is the certainty that God has placed within you to carry into a very uncertain world, to carry into a world of grave circumstances, a world of instability, a world where the threat of ruin and destruction is always there to some degree. This is a deeper certainty that is not based on ideas or ideology, but upon the presence of God within you and beyond you."[1]

"Let us say that Knowledge is not the things that are usually associated with it. It is not ideas. It is not a body of information. It is not a system of belief. It is not a process of self-evaluation. It is the great mystery of your life. Its outward manifestations are profound intuition, great insight, inexplicable knowing, wise perception in the present and in the future and wise understanding of the past. But despite these great achievements of mind, Knowledge is greater than this. It is your True Self, a Self that is not apart from life." [5]

"God has given humanity a deeper Knowledge that resides within each person, a deeper intelligence beyond the realm and the reach of the intellect—an intelligence that cannot be corrupted, persuaded or adulterated in any way. It is this power of Knowledge that represents your core strength and the source of your integrity and your ability to see beyond deception in any form." [6]

"At the very surface of Knowledge is the experience of profound intuition, the experience of profound insight and knowing.... Beyond the surface is the total experience of life in this world and beyond this world for you to have while you are still here. That is what reassociates you with life beyond and enables you to fully be a contributor while you are in the world. In all practical aspects, this is complete fulfillment while you are here." [7]

"The compelling force of Knowledge is so strong that it overrides anything that the world can set in its way. This level of commitment is the greatest demonstration of God. It is powerful, unending and compassionate. It has vitality. It is driven from something beyond this world. It is an uncommon, relentless force. It does not care about costs and obstacles; it cares about practical functioning. People with Knowledge will be uncommon and potent. They will not be alone, unless by choice." [8]

“The intellect can never fully comprehend Knowledge. It can only follow it and serve it and receive its blessings and greatness. But Knowledge remains ever mysterious because it is a doorway to God. It is your connection to God. It is how God speaks to you. It is where the Divine impulses enter your experience and awareness in life.” [9]
