“Based on the present focus of my training and preparation, I keep a sheet of daily observances and practices and refer to them often enough so that they stay current in my mind. These are the big things that I must maintain and embody over time. This list does not change very often. I call this my MVS daily practices and directives.”
“I have been keeping a daily journal since 1987—30 years. I record important events, NM Teachings and books received, trips, journeys, Great Wave and GC events, world events, weather events. I do very little subjective entries here. As I go back to review a day of my life or an event, the memory and experience comes back to me. My life is…
“My student hood recording goes into my Steps Study log.”
“Since 2000 all my personal history and studenthood recordings is on the computer making it searchable by date and subject. I keep this very brief and not too revealing. My deep work I keep inside of me.”
“Every day is important in your preparation. Look for the 10-20% that may be important and of lasting value. The rest is the flow of life. In the end, only true relationships and true service remain.”
“Finally recognizing the importance of your life, you will not want to waste any part of it.”
“Creating the Free School and the Study Plans is a real effort for Patricia, Reed and myself. I pray that you will take full advantage of our gift to you, especially with the Study Plans which are designed to take you further and deeper.”

“It is a… … two-hour chat of intention, endurance and circumstance”–made me think of the endurance and intention it took to ‘stay with’ the entire Vigil. Sometimes it did take endurance but it felt like a ‘test’ on the part of Heaven. Will they keep watch and wait with the Messenger? Will they stay alert for those parts of the Vigil that are especially meant for them? Will they stay for the end of the Chat when the Messenger provides something special that is needed in their studenthood? Much of what goes on in our days is inconsequential but there is nothing in the words of Revelation and in the teachings of the Vigils that are inconsequential. I had to recommit myself many times to be with you, dear Messenger, as you have committed yourself to growing our studenthood.
“Real Wisdom is passed on through a network of relationships. Like water seeping downward through the soil, Wisdom finds its real channels and its path of least resistance. It creates pathways where Knowledge can be passed on, transmitted and initiated from person to person through…
The pursuit of Knowledge and Wisdom is not an individual quest; it is a collective effort.” from GCS What is life force?

Today’s Chat transcript will be posted at the end of our discussion.
So the quality of one’s ideas are important, and that is why, in the study of Steps to Knowledge, the New Message Book of Practices, you learn how to think the way that Knowledge thinks. You learn how to think constructively. You learn how to use the mind, your personal surface mind, effectively so that it can work in harmony with the greater intelligence within you rather than competing with it for power and for dominance.
Your ideas are meant to serve a Greater Reality, you see—not to compete with it, not to deny it, not to try to control it or determine its ultimate reality. Here Knowledge gives you certainty and power, but it also requires…
For within you, you have Knowledge, and you have your ideas. They should not be in competition with one another. Your mind is meant to serve Spirit, which is Knowledge. Knowledge is here to serve God and to fulfil your purpose for coming into the world and the greater need of your Soul.” The Power of Knowledge
“I will use restraint today so that greatness may grow within me.” Indeed & for myself a potent reminder that I needed to drop down to my long term memory
