Robert_Society: Hello to all who are here early with us today. We will begin on the hour with a welcome, followed by our questions for discussion today. The questions we would like you to consider in preparation for our chat of this session are:
What does a New Life look like to you?
What do you want, need or think you must have in the context of a New Life?
Ellen_Society: Before we begin, I would like to share last week’s quotes from the Messenger:
“When you finally find your true path, hold fast. Even when the ship begins to sway and the storms rage within and without, hold fast.”
“To be wholly focused on attaining peace and contentment is still trying to make Separation work.”
“The wise remain hidden unless called out into the world.”
“When you finally find what you are really looking for, the real work begins.”
“All your preparation is to finally bring you to your greater role, in relation to certain people to fulfill a mission in the world. Once this is clearly recognized, all your preparation becomes focused on assuming and maintaining this role with courage, wisdom and strength.”
“Regarding the ratio between inner work/service you go from 80/20 to 20/80.”
It is not something you learn in a weekend, or in a month or even a year, for this mountain is a great mountain to climb. And it is in climbing it that you gain the wisdom, the perspective and the skills that you will need.
Because you are sent here for a greater purpose … you are like an angel in the world, …. ( Deepening Your Spiritual Practice )
“Your task is to follow the emergence of Knowledge within yourself, to be true to that, to be the recipient, to pull yourself in, to take the time it takes for a great emergence to happen within you. And do not be impatient, for it will emerge in its own time. You do not yet realize the magnitude of what is happening or how great its possibilities for the future will be.”
… I think I’m feeling the ship begin to sway.
In the ocean, the waters of the world are being moved in a determined manner, all over the planet, but you cannot see these forces from the surface. And you cannot see the great abundance of life within the ocean looking only from the surface. Likewise, looking at your mind from the surface where you live every day, you cannot see its depths, or the greater currents that are moving your life, or the greater purpose for which you have come and to which Knowledge will take you, if you can follow it.

~ The Gift of a New Life.
Somehow, this seems to be a contradiction. It is not merely that it is a fear or an anxiety. It is a contradiction, for you were born with a spark of awareness and you will leave this world with a spark of awareness.
You must set aside these notions that one life is a payment for a life before. It is really not like that you see. It is only partially true in the sense that if you did not serve others in one life you will be put in a position to where you can serve others in another.
Now you shine like a star…. (What Happens After Death?)
What can the world give to fulfill you? You are not here long enough. Your visit is so brief that whatever the world could provide you would be gone in such short notice. This world offers pleasures, stimulation and valuable friendships, but most important is that the world offers you the opportunity to experience and to contribute what exists beyond the world in your Ancient Home. That is the world’s greatest contribution. That is your greatest contribution.” Wisdom I – Service in the World)
Take a moment to honor the Messenger and to thank him for this great new vision, this life-saving gift he has brought to the world at such a critical time in history. Our lives are forever changed due to his Presence on Earth. The entire world will be changed because he gave his life to bring in a new understanding and a new way forward.

STEPS TO KNOWLEDGE: STEP 53
You must have this time of solitude. (Being Alone)
“You live life at two levels. You live life at the level at which you think, and you live life at the level at which you know.” 
You then become its student you follow Knowledge your mind and your intellect now becomes subservient to a greater power than yourself. Here the intellect can become the wonderful instrument of communication that it really is. Here you are able to discern amongst your emotions those which are truly valuable and indicative and those that are merely the product of your own reactions to life.
