As you begin to realize the importance of this Teaching and its great message for humanity for this time and for the future, you will want to share certain ideas with people. Perhaps you will try to share the whole Teaching as far as you can understand it. It is natural to want to extend wondrous things once you discover them for yourself. Yet there are important things to remember when you are presenting The Way of Knowledge to others.
One thing to remember is that people are living without Knowledge now, and though Knowledge is the most natural thing in the world to each person, it seems strange at first. It seems foreign to their experience and to their ideas, and it may indeed seem foreign to their education. You are presenting something powerful and mysterious. If it were merely powerful, people would seize upon it and try to use it for themselves as much as possible. If it were only mysterious, people would not feel drawn to it. But because The Way of Knowledge is both powerful and mysterious, it serves as a great challenge in learning.
As a beginning student of Knowledge, you realize that your existing ideas and beliefs are not going to prepare you for the second great stage of your life. Yes, certain things will be carried forward, but for the most part you will have to begin all over again. So when you present this Teaching to another, you are really inviting them to begin all over again. However, people do not understand this. They simply want to use The Way of Knowledge as if it were a tool or a resource for them to carry on with what they have always done. Or perhaps they will be drawn to The Way of Knowledge because it will seem to give them greater promise. They may think, “Well, maybe I can use this to get a relationship,” or “Maybe I can use this to win money,” or “Maybe I can use this to become more powerful,” or “Maybe I can use this so I do not have to work so hard in the world.”
The Unseen Ones understand that what they are offering and what people want are not the same. It is when you can look beyond the wants and the insecurities of your mind and feel a deeper need and yearning that you will understand what the Unseen Ones are offering to you. Then you will understand what God is working on in the world, for the Creator is not here to give people what they want, but to give people what they have come to give, which is what they really want. Yet how can you tell someone that what they want is not what they really want unless they themselves have experienced this sufficiently to be able to make this distinction within themselves?
