“Most of our real wisdom comes from our mistakes, especially the big ones. Approach past mistakes objectively like a craftsman working on a project. Mine these mistakes and log the wisdom that they can give you so you never forget. Never forget!”
“Great truth comes in increments. A great life is built in stages. The sin here is impatience.”
“Instead of waiting for Knowledge, practice listening for Knowledge. Then you are free to act or to not act. Knowledge will keep pace with you if you are doing what you need to be doing. It will prompt you to act or hold you back when necessary.”
“How I will be known and remembered will be based on the testimony of those who knew me in my time on Earth. Know me and remember me and our precious time together.”
“It is upon reading the deep texts of the NMG, for the third or fourth time, that they begin to reveal their secrets to…

“Knowledge lives in every person. Therefore, the New Message has a gift for every person who is ready to receive it.”
(Regarding the question of having enough money and coming to Boulder) “Work hard, save money for the future. Come to Boulder when you can.”
MVS’ talk last night on foundation building and stability was impactful and clarifying. This call for stability here is very real – something that I undertake now as a beginner, only now able to see the purpose of this within a larger context of life and the long road of higher purpose.
Something that has been on my mind for the past month is how to become part of the structure for this mission during the time of the Messenger, when it is clear I am still moving from codependence to independence and must learn these lessons. And the simple answer that occurred to me is: by becoming strong. We must each become a strong and stable pillar in order to be part of this structure, and all the lessons learnt along the way enable us to undertake this service without defining our role. A…
Alio-Austin: What struck me most from the vigil… 2 things. “What am I practicing? Practice makes permanent.”
That makes me more observant. 2nd, my practice has deepened and I am having profound experience with loving knowledge…. as an experience, and receiving as an experience. To have that happen and available as a technique and not just a occasional random profound experience in life is huge for me.
that role to fulfill itself, for Knowledge within you will fulfill it once you are prepared.”
This is a though question… for me contention has been ongoing since I found TNM. I experience a constant resistance nearly every day, mainly from family and at the same time I know I cannot stop. TNM has given me or rather has made me aware that there is a greater force at work in the world which I am a small part of and that no matter what I must keep going… keep moving… keep taking steps… keep up with my practices every day… keep up with the chats… keep connected. There are others depending on me and no matter what I cannot fail them.

As we have been reminded by the NM and MVS, we must be more stable, more compassionate, more forgiving, more discerning, etc than we are today. Oh this vigil has been so rich for me, in its essence of the importance of all of these practices to be applied to life….
