The Creator has given you authority over the affairs of your life. This authority extends to what you think and to what you do, to your decision-making and to the results of these decisions.
This is the pure religion. It has been the religion of the saints, the great creators and humanitarians. Moved by a greater power and force in their lives, beyond the ordinary things that determine people’s lives and experiences, they have been moved by a greater force, like a spiritual gravity, moving them to do extraordinary things for the benefit of others, beyond mere kindness and doing favors or service for people, by setting an example and encouraging and igniting the power of Knowledge in others.
You were sent into the world to make a unique contribution to a world in need. You have come at a time of great change and difficulty for the human family, a time when humanity will have to face Great Waves of change that are coming to the world, all converging at this time.
There is a great truth about your being in the world, a great truth that you cannot alter, that you cannot change, that you cannot remake into something that you would prefer or something that other people would expect of you. The great truth is about you and your relationship with the world and why you have been sent into the world at this particular time, under these particular circumstances. For it is no accident that you are here and that you have come at this time.
Every person has been sent into the world for a greater purpose, a purpose greater than their own designs, goals and ambitions. This purpose is connected to the purpose of others, and to the condition of their cultures and societies, and ultimately to the whole world.
When you reach that point in your life when you begin to seriously think that you might have a greater purpose in being here—a recognition that is certainly waiting for you and has been waiting for you for a very long time—when you begin to think of this, you must consider the issue of strength.
There is a greater purpose for you in the world, a greater purpose that has brought you into the world, a greater purpose that is meant to serve the world that you see and the world to come. The reality of this purpose—its meaning and its expression—exists beyond the grasp of your intellect. It is something that resides deep within you. God has placed it deep within you, within a deeper Intelligence within you, an Intelligence that is called Knowledge.
