“Most references to conspiracies contain both true and illusion, real news and false news. It takes great care and discernment and patience to see through all this. If it is your true purpose in life to do this, then you must build the foundation in Knowledge, and not fear and belief, to proceed, living with questions you cannot yet answer. If this is not your true purpose in life, then let Knowledge move you where it wants you to go. This means no more side journeys.”
“In most practical decisions in life, understanding should precede action. Before buying something expensive like a house, I want to have as much information about it as possible. I do not just say to myself, I feel good about this house, I will buy it. The same with starting a relationship. I want to know as much as I can about the other person, their history and tendencies and intentions so that I know what I might be…
“Self-Knowledge begins with paying attention to your experience and your interactions with people, circumstances, change, disappointment, truth—everything. If you are fully paying attention, you are listening.”
“Being receptive and following Knowledge is part of the map. Having a keen mind objectively discerning yourself and all the forces around you is another part of the map. Knowing what you feel and feeling what you know is another part of the map. There are more parts to this map. You need to know of them and be using them all to have the complete picture and make real progress. That is why there are many “Steps” in the preparation.”
“The world is place of longing, confusion and deception. It is the environment in which we must work. That is why the…
“Depending on what you practice for better or worse, practice makes permanent.”
“Study this Chat throughout the week. Stay with your Steps. Keep your head above the fog of the world.”
We are a very unique gathering, a worldwide community of students of Knowledge, witnesses to Great Waves that the world is still unaware of. So today we ask that you help shed a light on the events close to home that you are observing and affected by.
The first question is: The Great Waves of change are generating political instability and economic stagnation around the world. Is this affecting you and your country and, if so, how?
So, there is an early election in Korea. In the presidential election, there is a high possibility of a president coming out of the opposition party.
“Conservatives will be ruined by division, and progressive ones will be ruined by falsehood.” These words are being spoken.
This kind of dictatorship, always require an enemy, of course this is how self serving people rise to power, by focusing upon an enemy, real or imagined.
If you really understand people you want to serve them you want to help them you resonate with them you feel compassion for them. Even if they are led by a cruel and oppressive government you feel for the condition of the people. You do not want to hurt them.

I am aware that this is going to sound full of paradoxes. For me, I am finding it useful to push against Knowledge for a sense of where I am. At times, I can give up needing to ask what more I need to know, because who is asking, and who am ‘I’ asking? That distance is sometimes no longer there, or in fact I’m rediscovering what I used to know when I was much younger, but I lost faith in that because I didn’t really know what it was. Now there’s a very gradual re-opening process happening where I’m both remembering what I used to do, as well as developing in a new way. If I’m in the moment with the inner exploration the questioning is not really necessary, and can even be a hindrance by inappropriately re-activating the intellect. That is because ‘I’ don’t need to know in my mind, but with my whole being – asking to be shown, rather than ‘told’. It’s no longer just an opening of the mind – that’s insufficient; it has to be a full body opening now…
“Some people are born with a greater perceptual range that has always been with them. But it has been a source of grief, discomfort and alienation from others as a result for many people—more of a curse than a blessing. But it is a blessing, and it portends greater things. But it must have the right framework, understanding and approach and the right preparation for these greater abilities to be cultivated and used wisely, according to their true design and purpose.” Higher Powers (2011)
I always wanted to be ‘normal’ and tried to cut myself off from and extra-sensory perception. “That is why ultimately it is Knowledge that brings you to Knowledge. At the…
Greg_UK: The Great Waves of change are generating political instability and economic stagnation around the world. Is this affecting you and your country and, if so, how?
Local instabilities are either going to join up into global conflicts, or act as local preludes to global solutions.
Economic stagnation and engineered fiscal collapse are planned to happen in order for a fairer system of economics to replace it. Global gold and asset backed currencies levels the playing field for all countries.
Disclosure of ET intervention and political class moral and spiritual corruption (#pedogate) and gold standard all go hand in glove together.
A huge wake up call for humanity…
What role for students of knowledge in a post-Disclosure world?
your benefit or not. Therefore, We give the curriculum which you may now practice. It will replace the practices that have confused and belittled you, that have conflicted you and that have led you into error and into danger. We give you a greater practice so you will not practice those things which under mine your value and your certainty.”
Levy_Brazil: Economy in Brazil has been struggling to even keep at 0-0.5% growth.
Regarding availability of food, we’ve instances where certain foods like tomatoes were 3x more expensive for a few months, and the basic staple of Brazil (rice and beans) were also difficult to find or more expensive for a while, having to “accept” rice and beans from Argentina. These things have come and gone, but since they happened now with me being a student, it made an impact on me.
Regarding refugees, I’ve seen people from disaster-affected areas in Asia, here physically in Brazil, asking money in the streets for charity orgs in Asia. This was a first, I believe! And something that also impacted me, and it’s just going to increase. Also very possible for other South-Americans to have to immigrate here (as many Argentinians did during the top of their economic crisis years ago).
I was always very responsible and appreciative of what I had – early in life being quite privileged, but when I was 6 & we moved to Oslo that was all lost. It was not a terribly difficult adaptation at that age, especially as my brother and I were very creative with games. And although I am generally loyal, allegiances have been very fluid. “Do not lower your standards because others have lowered theirs. Be careful whom you associate with, for they will lower your standards….
On my own, I was not really aware of these things – always wanting to ‘help’ others, or finding myself with other outsiders. Occasionally now I do get a glimpse of how my change in behaviour does have a wider effect locally.
“The Greater Powers want to help you divest yourself of your foolishness and the things that you think are true that are not true, to bring you up this mountain so that you can see and not just think and believe. For once you attain the higher places upon the mountain, the landscape becomes obvious, whereas before you could only surmise what it would be like.” Higher Powers
“Whole communities will collapse because there will not be the infrastructure to support them. The cost of everything will go up. There will be financial chaos beyond what governments can remediate.”
We take time and care to objectively consider the meaning and merit of our own actions and decisions, questions and needs, and the actions of others. In addition, we practice contemplating experiences of Knowledge to understand them and know how and when to take action. Along with this, we contemplate certain areas of the New Message which hold special meaning for our studenthood and development as people of the New Message.
We take time and care to objectively discern what is before us and what we are seeing in others. With discretion, we seek to be self-aware and to know what we are saying and doing in any given situation. In this way, we maintain our inner connection with Knowledge while engaging with the world.
One interesting mandate I have not seen before: “Take twenty percent of your wealth and spend it on taking care of people.” From the Engine of War
in Damascus, Syria: “The future is upon you. The world will be unrecognizable in twenty years. You have nowhere to hide and no reason to be blind. It is an emergency for humanity, for only an emergency and a great need could propel God to send a New Revelation into the world.”

If you can recognize the reality and the power of the Great Waves to impact your life, this will naturally begin a long process of re-evaluation regarding how you live, where you live, your use of resources, the strength or weakness of your relationships in helping you to prepare and the direction your life really needs to follow.”
Meetings are Thursdays 7pm BST and 6:30 MDT at Uberconference.com/NewMessage. Another use of the Internet for a meeting such as this.
If you’d like to get on the mailing list please send a PM.
Ilhun_Korea: @Tyyne : The peninsula is a sharply confronted area between China / Russia and the United States / Japan. Recently, there is growing concern about US preemptive strike against North Korea.
There has been no official announcement of North Korea at the two summit meetings between the United States and China, but negotiations are underway. Currently, Korea is at the crossroads of going to one Korea or continuing to maintain two Korea. One of the options is to keep the two Koreas and let the US open North Korea to Chinese style. Such a rumor is circulating.
Korea is now in a state of growing concern about the war.
Here we must have a new understanding: Want what you know. Know what you want. Honesty does not require that you say everything that you feel. It just requires that you not alter or deny the facts of the matter or alter or deny your real experience of things. It will often ask you to withhold your conclusions and to hold back your speech until a greater understanding can be acquired. So, speaking your mind, which is usually a form of reaction, is hardly honesty. The greater honesty is to be aware of what you really know and to follow what you know so that you can apply it everywhere. Therefore, truly honest people are really very…
Many people are free with their ideas, but this really says nothing about them. Many people will express their opinions with great conviction to anyone who will listen, yet if it is something of a personal nature, they will give a very different story. Honesty is actually inside you, but it is first gained by awareness. If you are aware of your true feelings towards something, if you are aware of what must be done, then you can plan out your actions in a way that will have the greatest benefit with the least harm. On rare occasions Knowledge will override this, and you will be moved to do something very unexpected and very forceful. But this is quite the exception. Knowledge is silent most of the time. When you learn to follow Knowledge, you will become silent most of the time.
Honesty is not something you inflict upon the world. Honesty is something that you experience within yourself. Truly honest…
Therefore, true honesty brings about the ability to wait, the ability to evaluate oneself constructively, the ability to discern, the ability to not speak when it is appropriate, the ability to speak when that is appropriate, the ability to follow a Greater Power within you, the ability to abide with what is known and the ability to avoid or step away from that which is harmful or untrue.
Honesty is not something you inflict upon the world. Honesty is something that you experience within yourself. Truly honest. people, then, may not always speak, but every time they speak, they will speak the truth.” Thank for revealing the ancient Tao de Ching “Those who speak do not know. Those who know do not speak.” Important challenge for a student of Knowledge to know when to speak and when not to.
