“Saving the world is grandiose and beyond our individual reach. Yet the NMG emphasizes keeping Knowledge alive in the world. This is the ultimate goal, for without this, all is lost. Each of us has this core responsibility, and we are given the power of Heaven to achieve it. Service to the world will naturally flow from this well of inspiration.”
“The pivotal work is not constantly working on yourself, but being able to follow the journey out of the jungle of your old self. It is this freedom to move that breaks the chains of bondage. Managing the mind is to be able to do these things. For Knowledge is trying to take you somewhere.”
“You cannot fully work out your higher purpose in your mind. You must reach your destination, your final place of service, with your life and mind intact.”
“I pray that you all read and study these Chat transcripts throughout…
Carol_Society: … the week. Much wisdom shared here by all. Here, everyone is helping you get clear and stay clear with yourself and others.”
“A book, even STK, tells you the right thing to do, but it cannot tell you when you are doing it wrong.
“Where you live, how you live and who you are with will all have tremendous bearing on what kind of circumstances you will have to face. And you will have to gain access to Knowledge—the deeper mind within you, the mind that God has created within you—to answer these questions. The answer will not necessarily be an explanation, but a series of steps—things you must do, step by step. “
The key here is being able to recognize PRECISELY AND WITH 100% CONFIDENCE when Knowledge is communicating with you/me. This to me is the most important aspect of all the time we put into our practice and study for with the confidence of KNOWING that Knowledge is guiding you/me I will know I am finally fulfilling my purpose of being a vehicle for the expression of Knowledge in the world.
“This is humanity’s greatest hour, greatest challenge, greatest danger and greatest opportunity for unity and cooperation, where the resources of humanity and the great talents of humanity come together to sustain civilization, to restore the world and to prepare for your future and your destiny within a Greater Community of intelligent life in the Universe.
Yet you will have to take a very different tack with it, a different approach. You will have to learn how to do this and gain…
it before, it now carries a different quality, for it is now a Message of encouragement, to take my preparation to a higher level. To be involved and moving at a deeper level within myself and bringing my obligations in the world into sharper focus and discernment.
Here, all that encumbers and restricts my Spiritual advancement and relationships, will no longer be the influence they have been. This is the start of true Freedom.
My relationship with myself, my body and my mind has been established for some time now, and is developing. My relationships with others is building and developing in a Spiritual context and my relationship with the world is developing and growing.
“You must be strong enough not only to gain a secure position for yourself, but also to assist others, especially the elderly and the young. Lives will be lost through conflict and deprivation. This will depend upon whether nations and cultures choose to share the resources of the world or to try to gain them for themselves.”
Oh, yes… such a ‘solemn agreement’ it was…such a ‘solemn undertaking’ it has been and still is. A pledge of allegiance, a promise…to so many. To those who sent me here. To Knowledge within. To others. To you. To the world. To the RHPs. To those I had to leave, for I do this for them as well. Allegiance to our Allies, to our relationships in the GC. To the Great Alliance and Coordination. To God and God’s Greater Plan…So huge this allegiance is. For me, at the start of this new session, this Greater Allegiance is calling… calling me, you, all of us, to go to another level…
“Definately. That sense came very clearly when we left Hungary in September of 1944, when I was 10. Thirty or forty relatives, all of whom were well-educated and high up in the government, came to the railroad station to say good-bye and they all said, “Why are you going to Venice in September when the theater season is over and there are mosquitoes this time of year? You should stay here.” And all around the Russians were circling the city. We got on the train and after it passed over the Danube, the bridge exploded—that was the last train that left Budapest. In the next few months, most of the people who had been at the station died. And I realized that all of these adults who were worldly wise and well educated had absolutely no idea what was coming. They had deluded themselves into a sense of security. So, at 12 or 13, I was already looking for ways of understanding why people acted against their own interests.”
Intuition Magazine: July 1996
Adria_Poland: @Ayesha, yes! To me it’s something that puts everything into perspective: “(…)It is the fulfillment of your mission. For you have chosen to come into the world at a time when the Great Waves would be striking the world”. Sometime, somewhere, I chose it. It’s critical to take the steps necessary to remember why I am here, to gain openess enough to be able to discern where to go, whom to engage with. There is a mission to engage with, and a plan to participate beyond my understanding, to serve. And there will be no hiding and running, but challenge and meeting it.
“Knowledge will not just take you to the place that is the safest or the easiest. It will guide you to the place where your greater strengths can emerge”
What do the Great Waves of change mean for you?
And @Kelvin, I thought about the same passage from one of the Wisdom books. The Teacher appeared before him and urged him to return to the war struck area. The fleeing refugees were killed further down the road and he survived the war in the city. Without Knowledge we are blind…
Knowledge knows. Knowledge within you really knows why you are here and what you must do, it really knows who you must meet and where you must go and yet Knowledge is not dynamic it is not simply having a pre-recognition of things it is moving in dynamic relationship with movement of the world so as things change which they are if circumstances require a different set of actions then Knowledge responds immediately. So it is not like you have a plan that is already pre-described it must constantly be adapting itself to the changing circumstances around you. This is why static definitions are inherently incorrect because they cannot get, people try to adapt their experiences to their definitions of themselves and definitions of what they are doing in life but this is backwards. Knowledge is…
THE ONE BOOK: The Greater Community: Entering the Greater Community
Bhargav_Columbus: The great waves of change for me would be a paradigm shift in our outlook and understanding of the world and of ourselves.
A great opportunity to unlearn and shed our minds of the age old conditioning to prepare for unprecedented events like never before. War, Famine, intervention.
“This is a time when the great calling will sound for you. This is the time when your greater gifts will come forward” GWC Chapter 1
rayhobbs_Colorado: Keep moving forward. Keep taking the Steps to Knowledge. If you can do these things, you will pass through the wilderness. You will gain great strength here. You will gain great confidence here. The journey is longer than you think. And you will travel more slowly than you think you can. This will require more of you than you think it will require. And it will offer more to you than you think that it can offer. And it will restore to you abilities that you never knew you had. And it will elevate and clarify those abilities that you have always felt you had. And it will bring real dedication and devotion into your relationships, for that will be their foundation.
Your Spiritual Family is awaiting you, but you must make the journey.

They are resource explorers and economic collectives, groups that are not highly regarded even amongst your neighboring worlds in the Greater Community. They are scavengers. They will present themselves as noble and they will use your spirituality and spiritual idealism to paint themselves as liberators as emancipators as almost angelic but they are nothing more than opportunists.
And this world and humanity is the opportunity.
(New Message on Life in the Universe)
You can see right away that humanity has not met any of these preconditions. You are not united you are destroying your self sufficiency obviously as fast as you possibly can by degrading the sustainability of your world resources and you are projecting all of your communications out into space where they can be easily discerned by the discreet observer.
You are living in a fool’s paradise regarding the Greater Community.
Now, you must understand that the Greater Community…
Therefore for you, you must allow these things to remain somewhat mysterious. It is only through direct experience with Knowledge itself that you will be able to learn what Knowledge is and how Knowledge functions and why it is within you.Taking the Steps to Knowledge
Adria_Poland: @Patricia, thank you. The Teaching is full of powerful adjectives that really inspire me to look at my life, they help me to hear the tunning fork of Knowledge.
“Your relationship with yourself becomes critical, fundamental, practical and mysterious.”
“You have the opportunity to become strong, integrated, balanced, courageous, objective and compassionate.”
Courage, objectivity, strenght. Simple, honest, direct, authentic, healthy, in balance, resourceful, observant, powerful, essential.
What does it mean to be strong? How do I act strong?
Am I the same person in every situation? Am I being honest with myself, with others? What is my blind spot, my weakness?
Is my life essential? Do I indulge myself, do I waste time, where?
Do I act when necessary and hold myself back when I feel the restraint?
Am I looking at the world and people with enough compassion? Am I looking at them with Knowledge’s eye?
