Tyyne_Society: Hello everyone, here are the discussion questions for you to consider for today’s chat as we start to gather. They will be posted again later when we begin our discussion after we have a moment of stillness together on the hour.
1. How would a New Life for you and for others be connected to serving the greater needs of the world?
2. How do you feel you need to move in your life at this time to make “Building the bridge to a New Life” a reality for you?
The full study plan is found here: https://docs.google.co…/edit
Tyyne_Society: Here are the quotes of the Messenger from our last chat… “When I see a person acting foolishly or in a negative way, I ask myself “is this person really known by anyone? Is this person truly loved and appreciated?” This is a practice of mine.”
“Knowledge is what directs you toward and keeps you engaged with the NMG. Your personal mind won’t do that for very long. It is evident that Knowledge is working on you daily. It is the invisible Light, the silent Force that moves us!”
“Do not think that Knowledge is all about having big realizations or visionary experiences. It is the constant Force that is preserving your life and moving your life slowly and constantly. In facing difficult decisions or real challenges in life, it can be more forceful, but day by day, it is working beneath the water line.”
“Everyone is suffering living in Separation. Without the awareness of Knowledge and following Knowledge, without a real ladder from Heaven, what else can they do but all the things that…
By working closely with Marshall, Society and with students in preparation, and in bringing Knowledge and the NM into the world. I can see no greater need but increasing Knowledge in the world.
Carol_Society: This passage deeply struck me as a new level in understanding what it means to “keep Knowledge alive in the world”: “For to the extent that you are with Knowledge, conflict does not exist. An unconflicted life is the greatest contribution that can be given into the world, for this is a life that will spark the beginning of Knowledge in all, a spark that can carry itself into the future far beyond your individual life. It is this great spark that you are intended to give into the world, for then your giving will have no end and will serve your current generation and the generations to come.
“The blessings that you are now experiencing today in your world are the result of these reverberations which are passed from generation to generation as Knowledge is kept alive in the world. The opportunity for you to have Knowledge is born of the giving of those who have lived before, as your giving will provide the opportunity for freedom for those who will follow. This is your greater purpose…
Ellen_Society: When I look back at my old life (now 23 years ago), I thought I was free but I really wasn’t. Convincing myself that I was doing good work, I had mired myself in a complex set of commitments, and I was attempting to meet everyone’s needs. I took on a lot of responsibilities, and then felt deeply obligated. In hindsight, I clearly kept myself too busy to ponder the more important questions: Why am I really here? What did I come here to do?
THEN I ENCOUNTERED THE NEW MESSAGE. I never knew what freedom was FOR until then! My old life felt suddenly empty, void of a deeper meaning. I began Steps to Knowledge. I entered a period of great confusion at first. I had a lot of beliefs and assumptions to release.
When I felt called to move to a new life, it did require a long preparation and great courage to wrench myself away, but I gained far greater freedom. I was free to see more clearly, and to act. I was no longer hindered in what I knew I must do, so I could respond to a deeper need…
Deconstructing the old personality in order to find ones genuine self is tricky business – a delicate procedure requiring much guidance beyond oneself and from deep within, without being mislead by ones social conditioning or the many layers of personal preference built up over multiple lifestyle events.
It’s one thing to be attentive, it’s another to be calm enough to ‘hear’ Knowledge, with an open enough mind to receive rather than block everything out. Then the other thing is to be able to act, for if not, what’s the point in being told? If all one can do is do the dishes, surely that’s as far as one will go: ‘Develop the depth, the intention…
Conserving mental energy is so imperative now; ‘incremental disengagement’ – opening of the mind, which also leaves life open, and oneself open to life: “As you move up the mountain, the draw and the attraction of the lowlands are left behind, and you become freer and lighter and less burdened with the expectations of others and with your own needs that were never genuine to begin with.” Building the Bridge to a New Life
MVS Society: •”Knowledge will guide you to take certain actions. You must be free to take these actions.
Knowledge will reveal certain things to you about yourself and the people around you. You must be free to consider these things and to respond.
Knowledge will take you to certain places. You must be free to go there.
Knowledge will build real relationships with people who have great promise for you. You must be free to participate there.
Knowledge will take you out of situations that are unhealthy or that have no future. You must be free to withdraw.
Knowledge will ask you to wait. You must have the freedom to wait.
Knowledge will require forbearance. You must be able to practice forbearance.
Knowledge will require real discernment and the development of discernment on your part. You must be free to undertake this development.
Knowledge will require that you be discreet and not talk foolishly or mindlessly. You must gain the freedom and the strength to do this.
MVS Society: … require that you face the world and the Great Waves of change that are coming to humanity. You must have the freedom and the courage to do this.
All of these freedoms require breaking away from certain things and building other things. They require a thousand little liberations and new beginnings in every aspect of your life.
THE ONE BOOK: : New Life: The Freedom Journey
I can feel the movement occurring in my life but I cannot discern the meaning or direction at this time. I can feel many emotions stirring in me and I recognize all these signs are reflecting many of the teachings within this revelation although I hesitate to label them beyond the recognition that movement is occurring in my life and this Rev is resonating with that movement. “The first requirement is to accept the great change that is happening and to leave the explanation open. You will not be able to understand it. Your intellect is referenced to your past and former life. It cannot account for what is occurring with you now and for the impulses that you feel now and for the orientation that is slowly emerging within you. Your intellect will try but will be unsuccessful at comprehending the meaning of this.”
“It is this state of Knowledge that We wish to cultivate in all students of Knowledge to enable them to see the direction of the human race with vision and to be able to be very strong participants in the evolution of the world. To be able to function in this capacity, they must escape most of their personal dilemmas. They must be able to trade little problems for big problems. Since these people are destined to become important contributors in life, they are often very unhappy early in life because they get bogged down in personality conflicts, which they are usually unable to resolve. They have not moved into the proper position in life yet, and so their energy, focus and vitality become oriented to little things, and it is very hard for them.”

THE NEW GOD: The God’s Ancient Covenant with Humanity
Even Steps to Knowledge which as a book is an incredibly powerful mechanism for initiating you into the greater spirituality from which you come even it requires instruction from someone who is gifted and someone who knows the way who has traveled the way and you need other people to help you because this is not meant to simply isolate you further within yourself but to bridge you to other people who share your great journey. So having a Teacher such as Marshall Vian Summers and having others to practice with and share your experiences with and to help you not make mistakes and to give you strength when you seem to falter this is…
Jansett_Boulder: When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?”
“Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.”
Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.”
16 Again Jesus said, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”
He answered, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.”
Jesus said, “Take care of my sheep.”
17 The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”
Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.”
Jesus said, “Feed my sheep.
