Carol_Society:  While we wait for everyone else to gather, let us be with the words of wisdom from the Messenger in last week’s Campfire Chat:

“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.

Kari_H_Finland:  Greetings from Finland. Good to see new names
Thérèse:  Carol, Thank you so much!
Carol_Society:  Welcome all to the first Campfire Chat of The Free School session for March – April 2017, The New World: Preparing for the Great Waves of Change. What a beautifully and powerfully laid out plan, from the Messenger, Patricia and Reed, to help us transition, as Ayesha just said, and build upon the work we did in the last session, when we focused on The New Life, building the foundation and the bridge to a new life destined for greater service in the New World. To them, our gratitude once again.
Jim B. Upstate NY:  Thank you Carol!
Betty_UK:  Hello everyone
Ayesha_Society:  To start, if you had an opportunity to read the revelation The Great Waves and Your Life, what stood out for you the most?
26264:  Thank you Carol deeply gratitude them.
Youngkyo:  Thank you Carol.
rayhobbs_Colorado:  The survival of your personality is not the issue here. It is the fulfillment of your mission. (The Great Waves and Your Life)
LaRaeUK:  And may our gratitude to them be reflected in our STK study and dedication in establishing an authentic life in Knowledge.
Jorge_Spain:  “The awareness of the Great Waves of change is God’s great calling for you and great gift to you who are fortunate enough to read these words.”
MaryS_Boulder:  Oh, Carol_Society, this session’s plan, the School itself, so supportive, so necessary.
Jim B. Upstate NY:  @ Carol for me our practice and work we participate in with the curriculum laid out for us from The Angelic A. has a direct correlation to certain outcomes in the world in living in and through the Great Waves. It is all connected as we are all wired in to the Great Coordination. My practice is my life. Nasi Novare Coram
Mike_LF_CAL:  @Carol, As one example from “The Great Waves and Your Life” that has a deeper meaning for me.
“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.
Mike_LF_CAL:  Sorry @ Ayesha
JeffreyAdler_ATL:  The opportunities The Great Waves offer can eclipse their dire nature stood out for me.
René_Ca:  To me, it is that the place i must be when the waves hit is not about being safe and secure… it is where ” the place where your greater strengths can emerge, where your destiny can be fulfilled and where you will be able to meet the really important people in your life and engage in the really important activities in your life.” Its embarassing to realise i was thinking about being safe when i obviously need to contribute to the fullest extent possible…
Raoul_Australia:  This struck me: “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. ” Because even though much of the work to do is internal, this points to some very simple yet critical external aspects.
Jennie_Netherlands:  What stood out for me the most is that it becomes a neccesity for me to deepen my relationship with Knowledge
Amina_Russia:  But what you know to be true and what you think are not yet the same. And you must then align yourself with Knowledge and learn The Way of Knowledge and take the steps to Knowledge so that it becomes your guide and counsel.
Alison_boulder:  Two things stood out. “There is a range of outcomes here from difficult to terrible” and at the end: “Receive this awareness as a gift of great love.” It means to me the reality for all people is and will be harsh, but an inclusive network of the wise is at work.
Ken_Oklahoma:  This stands out for me. “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.” “Where should I live” I need to keep asking this question.
Shawn_Moose Jaw:  This sentence resonated powerfully for me: ” Only what is essential and deeply meaningful to you should you focus on.”
LaRaeUK:  That is potent Jeffery…..
Jorge_Spain:  I have felt a new meaning in phrases such as this: “Receive this awareness as a gift of great love, for great love it is. Receive it as a confirmation of what you most deeply know, for a confirmation it is. Accept it as a gift out of love and respect, for such it is.”
Virgie_near Seattle:  @Rene Ca: Thank you! Me, too!
Kristina FL:  Carol…this Revelation is clearly stating what is coming over the horizon and how important the preparation is to be able to be service for others ….”If you can prepare in advance, you will be in a position to help others. If you wait, the change you will have to make will be desperate, expensive and hazardous.””There will be great human need in the future. Many people will not have enough food or shelter. There will be great civil unrest in the large cities and in smaller communities as well. 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. “
Sang_CA_Korea:  “In a way, the Great Waves of change provide a very optimum environment for Knowledge to emerge because there is really no place that you will be safe.”
Kari_H_Finland:  @Mike, Iwas just going to post the same passage. What speaks to me here is “things you must do, step by step”. We want answers. We want solutions. We want explanations. But Knowledge is working with you step by step.
Lucille_Maine:  This excerpt from The Great Waves and Your Life stands out for me as a daily reminder throughout the day’s demands for attention. I find it keeps me focused and more energized to read this and ask myself these questions with everything I’m doing and in every encounter with people. “Is this helping me are become stronger or weaker, more prepared or less prepared, more certain or less certain, more connected to others in a meaningful way or less connected?” For time is of the essence now more than ever.
“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…
Lucille_Maine:  … strength, and quickly, for time is of the essence now. Each month and each year is critical in determining whether you are becoming stronger or weaker, more prepared or less prepared, more certain or less certain, more connected to others in a meaningful way or less connected.”
Jim B. Upstate NY:  @ Rene and Mike-LF thank you for otur powerful words! Resonating with them both!
Kelton_California:  Good morning everyone ( :
MVS Society:  Mike LF: It is rare you will have 100% confidence in recognizing and following Knowledge. But you will need at least 51% here to take action on your behalf.
Paul_MA:  “You are going to have to be prepared to take dramatic action, and U may have to act alone.”…And Here U must respond when others are not responding. U must take precautions when others are not taking precautions. U must change your circumstances when there appears to be no immediate reason for doing it.”……. So true… So much responsibility on YOU to act… It is upto you….it takes action beyond just thinking about what you must do..
Frederick_UK:  This is the Message I have been waiting for, even though I have read
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.
Paul_MA:  MIke LF===yes resonating.
Joyanne-Canada:  good quote @ Lucille, great questions to keep in mind.
Ken_Oklahoma:  Yes Kristina, “If you can prepare in advance, you will be in a position to help others. If you wait, the change you will have to make will be desperate, expensive and hazardous.” We need to be in a position that we help others. There will be so many in need.
Cameron_Canada:  Where I live has particular importance for me…and for others as well. But it is too soon to make any definitive statements about this just yet.
Tonia_Denmark:  “You will have to pay for the sins of the past, as your children will have to pay for the sins of the present” stands out the most for me.
rayhobbs_Colorado:  @Ayesha_Society “So even in the face of the Great Waves of change, even in the face of the dangers of intervention and competition from beyond the world, you have an opportunity to bring your life into order,…” (The Great Waves and Your Life ) Note: ” …for the first to reach your shores will not be saints or environmentalists … ” (The New Message on the Environment)
Paul_MA:  Ken- same here; one must evaluate the dangers of where one lives.
Eron_Boulder:  One thing that I became aware of in starting this new session is the link to the last session. For me, building a new life in a new world can really be facilitated by a Deep Evaluation.
Keiko_Ita:  Hello everyone!
Bhargav_Columbus:  The revelation throws light on how the times to come will be the of great challenge and how how this great challenge is an opportunity for human society to experience a deeper sense of unity and cooperation.
Inhee_Korea:  @Alison resonating” It means to me the reality for all people is and will be harsh, but an inclusive network of the wise is at work.”
Mike_LF_CAL:  @MVS, thanks for that clarification, I feel I can turn down the pressure valve of knowing now…
Reed_Society:  @Carol, this passage from Marshall last week is so important: ““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.” So important. It is the movement related to meeting life and what life brings and requires that takes us out of old places. Instead of staying in those old places and struggling with the grip that old place and old state of mind has over us, we instead depart, go somewhere new and this challenge calls new things out of us that we need to see demonstrated. I can feel the importance of movement, of departing the old, of doing something new, of being challenged and responding to that challenge again and again and in so doing, finding we are inside of a New Life already.
92437:  Ayesha what stood out for me in the first part The survival of your personality is not the issue here. 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. You have come at a time when humanity would have to deal with competition from the Greater Community, from invasive forces from the Universe around you. You have come at a time of great difficulty and uncertainty, a time of great discord and risk of war. Therefore, do not be in complaint. Do not deny or condemn the circumstances of the world when, in fact, they hold the greatest possibility for your redemption and for your fulfillment here.
Mike_LF_CAL:  @MarkBerger, I can’t access PM’s, its not working.
Selma London:  I am placing myself in a position to DO something: “You must be very open, you see, because 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, where your destiny can be fulfilled and where you will be able to meet the really important people in your life and engage in the really important activities in your life.” The Great Waves and Your Life (2008)
“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.”
Raoul_Australia:  …this makes it even trickier: “…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, where your destiny can be fulfilled and where you will be able to meet the really important people in your life…” because it is not only about safety.
LaRaeUK:  What really hit home for me was “Your great relationships will not come while you are hiding out somewhere pretending to be happy, safe, secure surrounded by all your unnecessary possessions involved in simple and innocuous and foolish activities. The great relationships will not come to you under these circumstances, only casual friendships, only people who share your hobbies or others who want to exploit you and share in whatever wealth you have.”
Ayesha_Society:  @Mike and MVS, I recount examples in my own life, often never being a 100% confident, though wishing I was. MVS the 51% felt uncertain, but it was enough for me to say that I must be with this further, or proceed with this next thing when that was necessary.
Maureen Boulder:  Yes.92437 Worth mentioning again. Serious stuff. “The survival of your personality is not the issue here. “It is the fulfillment of your mission.”And people will have to choose a greater allegiance within themselves and a greater allegiance to others. This is where great relationships become recognized, cultivated and expressed. No more foolish and indulgent romances here. No more wasting your time trying to have endless pleasure with someone when, in fact, you have nowhere to go together and nothing really important to do together. No more wasting your life on chasing beauty, charm and wealth; having fantasies about yourself and other people; trying to look good, to be accepted and degrading yourself in every possible way to gain the attraction or the admiration of some person. There will be little time for such things now.”
Hyeonam_Korea:  @Thank you Carol.
Paul_MA:  For me the difficulty in conveying the importance of the GWC to other people is the response…Oh yes, I know about all of these changes……Critical questions….how does one convey the magnitude, the urgency of the coming changes when others think they know what’s going on…..
Carol_Society:  @Mike, Ken, Cameron: where you live, of course, is important not only your safety, but also to fulfill your destiny, to find the the people and the servie connected to that destiny.
Jeanne_Boulder:  I appreciate the reminder of the importance of “The Four Pillars, like the four legs of a table they uphold your life. Most people’s Pillars are barely built. It is so important to keep this table strong on all four legs. We cannot be content with one or two legs must work on all of them
Levy_Brazil:  Thanks @Raoul, “it is not only about safety”
Kristina FL:  All these “must”…. As Reed mentioned on the Vigil… The “must” is the light to follow through the dark corridors”-MVS …”Here you must respond when others are not responding. You must take precautions when others are not taking precautions. You must change your circumstances when there appears to be no immediate reason for doing it. You must follow an inner urging and an inner direction, without really understanding what is happening and what your future or the outcome will look like. “
Debbie-Mi:  This sentence stood out for me: “The answer will not necessarily be an explanation, but a series of steps-things you must do step by step. For great change requires that you move incrementally, step by step.”
Adria_Poland:  @Ayesha, the entire teaching (pure and powerful, as is itself states), spoke to me deeply. I have read it twice and screened my life against the Teaching: am I doing it Knowledge-way, am I serious enough with my life? One of the quotes that struck me: “Only what is essential and deeply meaningful to you you should focus on.”
Maureen Boulder:  Yes, Carol. Service.
Ed_USA:  @Paul Have you heard the reports that Fukushima had another collapse/meltdown?
Paul_MA:  Maureen- it’s not about protecting one’s personality, but it is about protecting one’s cargo, one’s Knowledge….
LaRaeUK:  That statement is exactly what I’ve wanted freedom from all my life, and why TNM spoke to me so deeply when I discovered it.
David_KC:  “Ask yourself, “Where should I live?” Keep asking, and the steps will begin to appear if there is any change you must make in this regard.” I keep asking, and not 100% confident. Thank you Marshall, for emphasizing that it is rare to be 100% confident with knowledge. “It is rare you will have 100% confidence in recognizing and following Knowledge. But you will need at least 51% here to take action on your behalf.
Jorge_Spain:  “You must follow an inner urging and an inner direction, without really understanding what is happening and what your future or the outcome will look like. If you do not have the strength or courage to do this, you will just stand where you are, becoming increasingly full of anxiety and confusion, increasingly worried, increasingly frustrated and compulsive until your circumstances just fall away and erode your life, like a person who is standing on a slowly shrinking island or in a boat that is taking on water increasingly.”
Jim B. Upstate NY:  Don and I were just talking and 4 things came up: Food, water, shelter=SERVICE
Ann_UK:  My biggest difficulty is my four pillars. I just seem to get one or two in order and then another one falls off the table.
Raoul_Australia:  Staying with the New Message every day – reading, advocating, anything related to the NM, makes that 51% plus of Knowledge more likely to emerge.
Selma London:  My purpose is linked with the world’s suffering – therefore, I am grateful for my discomfort.  ‘Your deeper experience floats through your feelings and emotions.’ Signs from the World (2008)
Carol_Society:  @Maureen: “And people will have to choose a greater allegiance within themselves and a greater allegiance to others.” Sometimes a single word will stand out for me, will strike me, will make me stop in my tracks, and I have to spend some time with it. In reading this revelation again, it was the word ALLEGIANCE. Allegiance… One definition: “loyalty when pledged in a solemn agreement or undertaking” –
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…
Carol_Society:  … of re-commitment, of greater alignment, of deeper devotion… May it be so.
Kari_H_Finland:  Also this stood out for me. “Here your relationship with yourself becomes critical, fundamental, practical and mysterious. Whatever difficulties you have had from the past and whatever defects or deficiencies you now have will be overshadowed by the need of the moment and the need to prepare for the future.” New Message from God truly has truly restored my relationship with myself. No more time for self-obsession. No more time for regrets of the past. No more time for foolish addictions and habits. My relationship with myself is now practical and fundamental but also mysterious.
Jorge_Spain:  “Do not look at the future, thinking and worrying about what you might lose.”
Mike_LF_CAL:  @Raoul, (8:16) yes that passage is VERY powerful!!!
Selma London:  ‘Nature has equipped you to deal with uncertainty, to deal with catastrophe, to deal with hazardous events, but so many people have lost this natural capacity.’ Signs from the World
David_Simon_Virginia:  Carol I am with you
Mellany UK:  I hadn’t read this chapter for a while, and it has really struck me today … it’s so rich with clear directives for building the foundation for the New Life to stand upon, in preparation for service to the New World. I’ve started to compile a list of the “musts”, so that I can refer to it during my 4 Pillars Reviews. The reality of the New World holds so many great challenges but also the greatest potential. I’ve personal apprehension of the GW’s of course, and my mind may get a little overwhelmed occasionally, but overall I feel very grateful and blessed.. and motivated.. to be in the world now, because of this “While these times are extremely dangerous and hazardous, they provide the optimum environment for you to discover your greater strengths and with this, a set of greater relationships.”
David_KC:  Selma, yes. That stood out to me as well.
Ayesha_Society:  @92437- This passage you shared stood out for me too. Not about survival of personality and that we chose this! Through a deeper will, could I feel this intention and own the truth that I chose this before this lifetime, despite the challenges and what seems scary personally? One could see why the need to build the connection to this innate Knowledge is emphasized all over the New Message. One part of us may wants to run away and overwhelmed, while the other part Knows very well that these are the circumstances we came for and wills for us to prepare responsibly step by step and meet life and participate in it…the very thing we chose.
Tamara:  Kari..I was considering posting the same passage…
Selma London:  “God has given you Knowledge to guide you, to protect you and to lead you to a greater fulfilment in the world as it is…You have created a world where this will be increasingly necessary, a world where fantasy, speculation and presumption will be increasingly difficult to create and maintain.” The Great Waves and Your Life
Mike_LF_CAL:  Thank you Ayesha! (8:16)
carolyn_ct:  I continue to poll regarding where to live. “Ask yourself, ‘Where should I live?’ Keep asking…” The criteria of my search has changed over time, I want it to better align with greater purpose…something I do not assume to know, yet when I feel the presence of God very powerfully within a movement, that is a sign. If I do not feel this, then I have only to keep being with the questions. I sense a gradual motion to a specific place, but only yesterday uncovered that part of that was personal preference. So back to the deep well I must go. I must have faith that my practice will lead me.
Jennie_Netherlands:  What struck me when being in Africa on a mission allready more than seven people asked mewhen I am going to live here. And my five children are really okay if I leave. They said they knew all along. But the fact is, I didn’t. Now I will wait for Knowledge to guide me more and more as a nessecity.
MVS Society:  – Did the war create a sense of chaos for you?
“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.”
Mihaly…
MVS Society:  … Csikszentmihaly
Intuition Magazine: July 1996
Kristina_Boulder:  What stood out for me is constant reminder about building all 4 pillars, which is #1 priority. Building pillars and building capacity, saving energy, getting stronger and doing deep evaluation on ongoing basis.
Insuk_Korea:  @Reed, Thank you for sharing “The pivotal work is not constantly working on yourself, but being able to follow ~”
Virgie_near Seattle:  @Carol_Society: Thank you; resonating.
Kristina FL:  Thank you Carol… beautiful and moving. May it be so.
Tonia_Denmark:  51%? I like that. I’m in less more often still.
DavidD_Mtl:  Thank you Marshall…this is powerful.
Levy_Brazil:  Wow, thank you, Marshall
David_KC:  I just felt like I was there, Marshall. Moving.
LaRaeUK:  Something that really strikes me is that there is every likelihood many of us will return to this world to serve again in this world, when The Great Waves are in full force. It drives home the critical importance that we keep Knowledge alive in this eorld at this time not only for the good of all mankind, but for any future lives of service we might have in the future.
Raoul_Australia:  wow, thank you MVS – such a powerful account
Hyeonam_Korea:  Thank you Marshall.
Betty_UK:  @Ayesha, the whole revelation spoke to me, it gives many directives, but the main one is the Steps to Knowledge, the four pillar practice, self honesty. There is a sentence that jumped out, perhaps because I never looked at it from that angle, it is “… and to assist others in ways that will be new for you and unexpected.”
Levy_Brazil:  @LaRae, I agree!
LaRaeUK:  Wow. Thank you MVS a potent example.
Ken_Oklahoma:  Mihaly Csikszentmihaly was with Knowledge at this early age.
Tonia_Denmark:  Mihaly knew things
Raoul_Australia:  @LaRae, Levy, I thought of that too…coming back and perhaps being a student of my own translations
Jennie_Netherlands:  It is difficult leaving my children behind
Cameron_Canada:  @MVS – My mother missed the train that would have encountered that blown up bridge. Instead they were forced to take another that brought them to safety. Incredible. Both of you on opposite sides of that event. She thought missing the train would be their demise and yet it was there salvation.
Cameron_Canada:  their salvation.
Reed_Society:  @Adria, thank you “I have read it twice and screened my life against the Teaching” I will take that with me as an approach to reading/study: to screen my life according to the teaching and what it says
Patricia_Society:  One question to I live with ,” Why do we not to see or feel the Signs, and why?” The Signs, ex., developing health issues still decades off, or right around the corner, financial issues or decisions looking us in the face and/or that have been brewing, seeing or not seeing a relationship for what it is….??? Therefore, Seeing and Responding, or Not Seeing and Not Responding seem very connected…..Seeing/Not Seeing…….will fuel movement/stasis…
Jim B. Upstate NY:  Thank you Carol! And Marshall what a story and example of what is here and ahead of us. Thank you!!! So very powerful.

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”

Kelvin_Boulder:  I am reminded of something I read somewhere in the NM where an unseen talks about his life here. During a war, he follows his instinct to go back where he was fleeing from, completely against the personal mind and others. He became a barber and spend the rest of his life like this, simple service. This passage has speaks to me to what is important “The survival of your personality is not the issue here. 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. You have come at a time when humanity would have to deal with competition from the Greater Community, from invasive forces from the Universe around you.”
Insuk_Korea:  @Jeanne, I agree with you.
LaRaeUK:  So grateful for those translations and all they serve Raoul!
Mike_LF_CAL:  @Carol (8:21) WOW, very powerful!!!!
Kristina FL:  Thank you Marshall.. this hits home… I had a chance to talk to my dad about the GWC and because Hungary went through constantly ruled by others and war, i can say that most people, especially older generation have a room next to the kitchen always full of food and other essentials. My dad said if the power is turned off today he is prepared… well… except no secured water supply for the family… Im pressing him to build a well not just for our family, but others in need.
Jeanne_Boulder:  On my four pillars I seem to be able to keep 3 of them somewhat stable but still working on the 4, hard work to keep them strong, it helps to hear MVS 52% strong.
Marilyn_USA:  @Patricia, is it possible that when people do not feel they have solutions, then it is harder to face the problem?
92437:  Thank you David KC and Marshall “Where should I live?” Keep asking, and the steps will begin to appear if there is any change you must make in this regard.” I keep asking, and not 100% confident. Thank you Marshall .
Kari_H_Finland:  @Tamara, “Step 194, I will go where I am needed today”
David_KC:  Of course, I would like to be 100% confident.
Paul_MA:  If U can prepare in advance, U will be in a position to help others”…”In a way, your life will have to become more authentic, more healthy & more in balance instead of t his frantic pursuit ot fulfill your needs and the expectations of others…”.. It is good to hear the bright side of the future.
rayhobbs_Colorado:  We practice seeing beyond the constraints of the mind, looking for greater insight or understanding regarding situations, dilemmas and conflicts that are long-range in nature, out beyond the immediate horizon of our lives. In this way, we can sense the overall direction of our world and how we must prepare now for eventualities in the future. Seeing can involve experiences of remarkable insight beyond the normal parameters of time and space. This capability is made possible by Knowledge. These experiences require ongoing contemplation and consideration. (The Great Practices )
Douglas_St.Paul:  Mihaly’s book “Flow” might say some things about people who have responded to Knowledge.
DavidD_Mtl:  @Kelvin, yes that passage struck me as well, I believe it’s either from Secrets of Heaven or WWC Vol 1.
Carol_Society:  So much in this Great Waves revelation has impacted us, and gratefully we will have the entire month to re-read, listen to, and study. Now we will turn to the next focus for today:
What do the Great Waves of change mean for you?
LaRaeUK:  I recall that as well Kelvin. I believe it was a chapter in Wisdom 1
David_KC:  preparation. I was made for this. everything that has happened in my life until this day has prepared me for this. it is my purpose and calling to prepare and contribute.
Ed_USA:  @Carol What prevents our extinction? Fukushima is highly concerning.
92437:  @Raoul yes!!! Staying with the New Message every day – reading, advocating, anything related to the NM, makes that 51% plus of Knowledge more likely to emerge.(5:21PM)
René_Ca:  urgency.. and opportunity
Jeanne_Boulder:  One of my STEPS this week was to stop & asked myself “where am I & what am I doing?” I need to remind myself often these questions.
Kristina_Boulder:  “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. For great change requires that you move incrementally step by step. The only exception to this is being in an extreme emergency, such as being in a house on fire or on a sinking ship. But beyond this, you must follow a series of actions which may not make any sense to you at all in the moment, a series of actions which others might consider to be foolish or irrational. You will have to follow these.”
Hyeonam_Korea:  GWC means to me work for others and me.
Levy_Brazil:  @Patricia, thank you for your comment on being willing to see and respond to things now vs suffering consequences later, and on being on the lookout for signs, always.
LaRaeUK:  Indeed DavidKC, that resonates for me as well.
Raoul_Australia:  For me Great Waves and Greater Community always stand out: “…there is no greater problem or greater need for the human family than to prepare for the Great Waves of change and for the Greater Community.” from ‘The Importance of the Greater Community’
shane_NZ:  @Carol – what do The Great Waves of Change mean for me? opportunity to bring your life into order, to establish a genuine set of priorities and to stop wasting your time, your energy and your life force on things that have no meaning, value or purpose. You have the opportunity to become strong, integrated, balanced, courageous, objective and compassionate, whereas before you were simply an addict of your culture, trying to have, be and do things that were not essential to your nature or to your greater purpose for being here.
Paul_MA:  Carol. The Great Waves of Change…. This was my entrance to the NMG. I heard Marshall on a radio interview a few years back discussing this book! The GWC both provide great incentive to prepare for them, and great danger to be consumed by them.
Tom_SanFrancisco:  @MVS; my great grand parents sent my grandmother from the austra-hungarian empire to philadelphia to live with relatives because they saw the first world war coming 10 years in advance.
Richmond_UK:  @ Carol the GWC mean for me personally many things , but of paramount importance is the must for the inner preparation to take place, that I and others will have to rely on completely in the face of perhaps unprecedented events in the future.
Insuk_Korea:  @Carol, Thank you for sharing your experience.
Mike_LF_CAL:  @MVS, (8:25), I seem to be using this word a lot today, that was a very POWERFUL story!!!! Thank you.
Kari_H_Finland:  “For if you are really building and maintaining the Four Pillars of your life, you cannot be extreme or eccentric in any area. You cannot be compulsive. You cannot be addicted because you will be so busy taking care of the fundamental Pillars of your life, you will not have time for foolishness or self-destructive behaviors.” Amen…
David_Simon_Virginia:  @Kristina: I resonate with that quote. Knowledge has a plan for me and others that are connected to me. This in the only real life I have to live. NO more dreams. I have only one, narrow path to follow now.
Adria_Poland:  @MVS, thank you for this powerful quote.
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…
Cameron_Canada:  a greater question for me is what hinders and slows my preparation, and how do I best resolve these issues?
Tonia_Denmark:  Patricia, good question. We forget all the time is what I normally say. And that is why we have so many things to remind us of what not to forget: the relationship it stands for or is related to.
Ed_USA:  @Carol I’ve long been an advocate of environmental issues – decades, really. The GWC simply put it into a larger context of experience, underscoring the necessity of keeping our planet alive and flourishing.
92437:  @Carol Thank you this I can feel.(5:21PM)
Patricia_Society:  Regarding Seeing…there seems to be a difference between this kind of perception and the problem of self fueled anticipation….which we can generate ourselves and over amplify….Sometimes those matters that are struggling to get our attention in the face of the world’s Great Waves of Change are the less juicy, less intriguing affairs of the day that need determined action now….the mini great waves of our existence, that if left unaddressed, just build and build quietly to an eventual magnitude of pressure and consequence…..if you’ve ever found your self in a hospital bed or in 5, 10 or 20 year relationship going nowhere…..you may be looking at a mini Great Wave gone massive in your life…..
Lin_Boulder:  @Carol, from another chapter of GWC “From a higher vantage point and from a greater wisdom, the Great Waves of change are what humanity has created for itself to force a kind of redemption. Unable to use its affluence effectively, it must now use its failure. Humanity must now use adversity to redeem itself.”
Betty_UK:  Thank you MVS for sharing ‘Mihaly Csikszentmihaly’ story
René_Ca:  Very insightful Patricia, thank you
Paul_MA:  Was there a global event that initiated the receipt of the GWC?
MVS Society:  It is more important to live with bigger questions, than to base your life on simple answers. This keeps you looking, listening and responding to the real signs and movement of life around you. Being careful, attentive and patient here are very important. “Like the man crossing the winter stream.” Tao
Tamara:  At this point in time great change is certain and we have a small amount of time to create solutions that might allow for humanity to have a livable home in the future. That means that the GWC are all about each other…what will I be able to do, offer to others as any sense of normal is washed away.
rayhobbs_Colorado:  Knowledge contains the memory of your creator the memory of your purpose for being here and the blueprint for your mission in life. It really is a greater activity that you are here to accomplish.
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…
rayhobbs_Colorado:  … able to respond in the moment it is able to change the plan it is able to redirect you if circumstances require it. That is why the man or woman of Knowledge must learn to live without a lot of personal definitions. (Excerpts: Taking the Steps to Knowledge)
Alison_boulder:  It means to me that the Teachers have given a title to the Earth’s changes we face, so that we may have a reference point. It has helped redefine and reorganize the “problems” I see the world has. Some turn into opportunities and some don’t require as much attention. I have always felt enthused so have this information compiled. It is only as good as its real life application. So I feel having the “Great Waves of Change” as a corridor of the New Message is a gift of guidance to do what it says: Navigate. The more I prepare, the less denial, the less veiled fear.
LaRaeUK:  What it means for me is to deepen my commitment to Steps. Deepen the depth of my study and practice. Continued unburdening, continue to try to harnesss and redirect my strengths in the right direction and let go of those aspects of my personality that continue to weaken me.
Tyyne_Society:  That is a potent question, Patricia – “Why do we not see or feel the Signs, and why?” – I had a conversation with a co-worker this week about something similar to that. As I grew up as a young girl, I was sensitive to the feelings and movement around me. However, those around me were not speaking or acting in accordance with what I was sensing. It was very incongruent and it was confusing. I learned over time to question my own experience and doubt it. It has take some time to understand this and to see how sensing and knowing can be eroded by the environment we’re in. For me, it has been a process since encountering the NM and the call to Knowledge, to come back to what I sense and feel and honor and respect that and follow that. That is what got me here – Oh, don’t do that – Oh, do this – No, this is the next step – take this step – even if the outcome is unknown but knowing it’s the next step. It took many steps of change and movement to get here. Now it is a regular practice. What…
Tyyne_Society:  … do I Know about this? What do I Know about this situation? What do I Know I need to do? And then testing that out for accuracy as I move forward because things can change and shift and we need to be able to make those shifts when necessary if we can.
Jeanne_Boulder:  Thanks to Mel for sharing on FB on how we spend our energy on things that are not important. not waste our energy on thing that don’t matter. Need to keep my life simple in my energy do just what is important & let the rest go. Don’t give to much energy to unimportant thoughts.
René_Ca:  I almost walked throught the ice recently… a great reminder to be constantly vigilant. Thank you Marshall.
Maureen Boulder:  @ Carol Beautifully said. Devotion. Pure surrender and devotion.
Paul_MA:  Living with Questions encourages the interaction with Knowledge and one’s Spiritual Family & Teachers.
Kelvin_Boulder:  @Adria, thank you.
Kari_H_Finland:  @Ed “For one who has perception, a mere sign is enough. For one who does not heed, a thousand explanations are not enough.”
Joyanne-Canada:  Thank you Tyyne, another great practice to implement and be aware of, tune in within,
Ed_USA:  @Reed I’m off topic, but I’m going to see Bashar this evening. I’m going to ask him what he thinks about the Declaration of Human Soverignty. Do you have any question you’d like for me to ask him?
Ayesha_Society:  @Patricia, this is an important question to live with: ” Why do we not to see or feel the Signs, and why?” . One thing I can think of are what creates blind spots. What are my blind spots now that would make me miss the signs? I look at the lives of others as a teaching sometimes, people who have heavy careers, family and kids, crushing and dense responsibilities…is overwhelm a blind spot to see signs? Does someone wake up 5 or 10 years later to a serious health condition, or were there signs along the way that they could not see or feel? I will continue to be with this question too.
Amina_Russia:  Great Waves of Change mean for me that I have to go through my internal waves of change, means I have to become strong with Knowledge,take the Steps, recognize my life, so I can serve, not be lost and scared, I have to prepare now ( if I may quote from the article Marshall wrote right now) not to “act against my own interest”.
Jansett_Boulder:  The emphasis in this GWC chapter on preparation and that we may be called to do what is new and unexpected really struck a chord for me. Having experienced living in an underground bunker and watching the reactions of all the other participants who believed the world was coming to an end, I can say with certainty that no matter what you believe your reaction in an extreme event will be, it will most likely be far different in a real scenario. A book that I have treasured for 30 years gives a clear perspective on this: Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl: “When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves….It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us.”
René_Ca:  (if you want my advice, don’t go see Bashar)
MVS Society:  • “This is a great challenge, but a necessary challenge, and a redeeming challenge if it can be met honestly and sincerely. You have the eyes to see and the ears to hear, but you are not looking and you are not listening. Everyone around you seems to be obsessed, preoccupied or oppressed. Who will speak to them? Who will teach them? They may not hear Our words. Who will speak to them?”
THE ONE BOOK: The Greater Community: Entering the Greater Community
Douglas_St.Paul:  I consider thousands of new record highs in the month of February in the US to be a Sign
Mark – IL:  What I realized most upon reading this teaching was that I was aware of this situation at least 35 years ago – long before I heard of this situation being referred to as the Great Waves. Most of my life I have been preparing for its eventuality, seeing decades ago that ecosystem destruction, resource depletion, and exponential population growth would lead to a serious crisis. Even 40 years ago I would ride my bicycle instead of drive to avoid burning fossil fuels. I never told others why I rode my bike because they would have thought I was crazy back when gas was 50 cents a gallon. I always expected the crisis to arrive any day. What I didn’t realize was that such events in the world tend to move very slowly. Even recent upheavals from political and financial events don’t seem to be affecting how people treat the environment and use resources – especially here in the U.S. I realized many years back that in general, people are unlikely to reduce resource consumption and…
Mark – IL:  … environmental damage just because doing so is the intelligent thing to do. What I have seen is that change of this sort generally only occurs when conditions require it. On an individual level, this typically means when economic conditions require it. On a personal level, I feel I am fairly well prepared for challenges I may face regarding my physical needs. However, it is impossible to predict what can transpire during periods of crisis, so I have tried to remain aware of what is currently transpiring and respond intelligently to that. It has been obvious to me for decades that the Great Wave changes are inevitable based on how we as a race treat the planet. What I have not been able to understand is if others cannot recognize the eventual result of humanity’s actions, of if they recognize but choose not to respond. Two of my goals in life have been to limit my resource consumption as much as possible and to leave the small portion of the world I am responsible for in…
Mark – IL:  … better condition than how I found it. It is difficult to limit resource consumption in our modern world without living as a hermit in a hut.
Ginny_Dallas:  @ Alison – Excellent overview!
rayhobbs_Colorado:  Your Spiritual Family will raise you up, those beyond the world and those within the world as well. They are your parents, your brothers and your sisters now, and the Unseen Ones are your elders, who guide and oversee your development. Because you do not live in a state of Knowledge, they must help you. Though you will rarely experience them directly, they will work behind the scenes on your behalf. That is not to say they will take away every obstacle and risk from your life. Of course not. But they will seek to give you the greatest opportunity to face problems, obstacles and risks effectively and successfully. They will help you negotiate the world. They will stand behind your true decisions, and they will send warnings and messages when you make decisions that are not correct. Your Spiritual Family will take you to your greater purpose, for that is their mission. (Your Relationship with Your Spiritual Family)
Ann_UK:  Thank you @Patricia. I am sitting here recognising a couple of mini GW’s from my past . Will try to be much more observant in the future.
Alison_boulder:  Patricia, I appreciate the image of the hospital bed sitting right next to the example of a nowhere long-term relationship. It is true that both can lock you in, frozen.
Selma London:  Sins: “You will have to pay for the sins of the past, as your children will have to pay for the sins of the present. These sins are errors, fundamental errors, and in some cases tremendous errors.” The Great Waves and Your Life
Kristina FL:  Carol…What do the Great Waves of change mean for you?… I choose to come in to the world at this critical transition when the GWC will strike the world to be at service, a great opportunity to fulfill my purpose… preparation is the key to be able to do that. I Pray that i have the courage the strength and the wisdom to do this fully.

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

Tonia_Denmark:  Marshall, thank you for the reminder and inspiration
Kelvin_Boulder:  @Jansett, thank you for that. I see the message there.
Matt_bzn:  @Mark-IL – tremendous insight. I have realized the same thing, only from the ET presence on the planet. Have felt if from a very young age, and made similar missteps. Thanks for sharing
David_KC:  Kristina_FL – “I Pray that i have the courage the strength and the wisdom to do this fully.” I pray for this too. Thank you.
carolyn_ct:  Here is an example of what can happen to us regarding signs. When I was 17 I received a dream that foretold of a great change that would have a devastating impact on my family. I told my family and they all told me to be quiet. They said, ‘forget this dream’, so being the obedient daughter that I was I forgot it. By several months later, when this traumatic event actually occurred, I had forgotten. I was so obedient that I forgot it for another 30 years! Then one day I woke up and remembered everything. I called a friend who was there when I had the dream, and I asked if she remembered. She remembered very clearly, even stating a few details I had forgotten. So now I am a little more careful when I get notified in advance. I pay attention to the feelings that are with me. It can be an uncomfortable thing, living in with this sense, but it is better than stumbling around in the dark.

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.

Carol_Society:  @Patricia, Ayesha: Oh, yes, yes…the mini great waves that go massive. The blind spots. Or you actually do see the signs and know what you must do, but the excuses for not acting now… “Oh, but I have to wait until ________before I can do this.”
Jorge_Spain:  For me, the GWC (and the emergence to the realities of life in the universe) mean in part a big, big shock and dissappointment. Like the end of humanity’s innocence, the end of humanity’s idealism in many respects. And my own. Facing the realities of life, for better or worse. And no guarantees. Life in full force.
Kari_H_Finland:  “When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves….It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us.” Thank you Jansett for this quote.
79042:  @MVS that seems to be the Question facing Humanity in General. Who Speaks for Humanity of of all of Humanity when it comes to responding to the intervention? Russell
Selma London:  “It is not about perception here, whether you are loving or fearful. It is really about whether you are wise or unwise, whether you are responsible or irresponsible…The Great Waves are far more powerful than you are. You will not alter them with your affirmations or your declarations. But you can learn to mitigate them, to adapt to them, to use them to your advantage and to use them to be of assistance to others.” The Great Waves and Your Life
Jangsun_Korea:  Thank you Tyyne for sharing your experience.
MVS Society:  We are all planning for those pivotal days ahead when we will need to rely upon Knowledge, like never before!
Insuk_Korea:  Thank you Marshall for sharing “It is more important to live with bigger questions~”
Gina_Boulder:  @ Patricia….Yes, this passage from Solving Problems in Wisdom V II recently struck me. “Here is the problem with problems: little problem, big reaction; big problem, little reaction. This is the problem. This is the big problem.” So I must practice seeing without preference…One of the great developmental needs of this time. “To see with clear vision means you are not seeing with preference. It means that you are able to perceive that which is actually occurring rather than that which you wish to see. There is something actually occurring beyond your wishes. This is very true. The desire to see, then, is the desire to see a greater truth. This requires a greater honesty and a greater openness of mind.” -StK
Ed_USA:  @Russell – GREAT QUESTION!!!
David_KC:  Thank you Marshall. I feel that. Mavran Mavran Conay Mavran
Joyanne-Canada:  Yes MVS, preparing, participating, learning to engage and trust in Knowledge, Thank you
Patricia_Society:  Seeing/not seeing – I often think of the ship at sea. The navigator and captain reading the signs right in front of them…the gauges and barometers .the winds, the waves, the clouds, the stillness…..There’s aways the huge weather system that’s coming, or that is prevailing at the time,… but what must they do right now; power up or down the engine if they have one, tack into the wind, drop anchor, pump oncoming surge water out of ship, secure the decks? Yes we are going somewhere, we are being Called somewhere, yet our attention and response to detail along way will either make the meeting with Destiny be so, or perhaps not….
rayhobbs_Colorado:  You do not need to understand the potency of this practice to receive its full benefit. To receive its full benefit you need only practice it as it is given. (Step 136)
Cameron_Canada:  @Russell – Kind of what I asked last week.
Paul_MA:  I have read stories of Atlantis and the ones who escaped. I wonder in past civilizations, if some had access to Knowledge and utilized it to escape before the great tragedies befell them.
Matt_bzn:  @Gina – very true – I see little problem big reaction, big problem little reaction daily. Thanks for the insight in dealing with that.
Levy_Brazil:  Thanks @Patricia, “our attention and response to detail along the way”
jeanine_Society:  Paul_MA – your question from the beginning of the Chat struck me: “For me the difficulty in conveying the importance of the GWC to other people is the response…Oh yes, I know about all of these changes……Critical questions….how does one convey the magnitude, the urgency of the coming changes when others think they know what’s going on…..” So many will not hear – but as it has been said before, there are those that have been waiting for this…they are they ones we need to reach. So we need to be discerning, selective with whom we speak to – our time is precious. Rely more on our Knowledge here…
Lin_Boulder:  @Patricia, to me, this seeing/not seeing, responding/not responding is only relevant when we start the second stage of life and start reclaiming of Knowledge. Even here, we have to be successful in taking each step, then come to the next step. The inability or less ability of seeing, knowing and taking action, lead to the fact that some stop at the side of the road, and some have slower pace in the journey.
Ed_USA:  @Marshall Does anyone ever mention that Knowledge is effective with members of our own species? I think people might find it more practical and immediately pertinent to develop their relationship with Knowledge if those of us who are encouraging them to pursue this course of action make sure that they realize this.
Virgie_near Seattle:  For me, GWC means dealing with problems I have been putting off dealing with because I know some things might change or be easier in a few months. But being told that every month matters, I’m seeing now that I need to take action immediately. And looking at the situation more objectively, my hopes about things being easier in a few months were kind of absurd, too!
Raoul_Australia:  Thank God (the Messenger, the Society) for this Preparation: “There is only one Teaching in the world today that can prepare you for life in the universe. There is only one Teaching today that can tell you what is coming over the horizon of the world with real accuracy and prophecy. There is only one Teaching in the world that is a New Message from God and that is so comprehensive and complete that it should be considered in this way.”
from ‘The Importance of the Greater Community’
cole_boulder:  @Lin – thank you
Adria_Poland:  Thank you, Patricia, something to deeply re-read and think about. Mini great waves and error-building thoughout the years, and paying attention to te detail, because too much not paying attention, and we may go terribly astray, and it may take so much more strenght to return to the right course.
Alison_boulder:  @Virgie, me too, thanks for that. The momentum of becoming honest and dealing with those things feels really good.
shane_NZ:  “There is seeing a sign. Something stimulates you. You recognize something must be done. There is a time to contemplate, a time of knowing what this is, feeling the need to take it into your mind and your heart. Then there is a time of action. The action itself may have many stages. It may be a very long process, in fact, and that is true within the context of the Great Waves of change. Even a specific change that must be undertaken in one’s life may have many steps involved. You may only know the first few, but it is necessary to move with Knowledge. Only then will you know if what you are seeing is true. Only then will you know its great importance for your life.” seeing-knowing-and-taking-action
Kristina FL:  Thank you Patricia… Seeing is so important. “Help me to see, so I may know”- Patricia Summers
MVS Society:  Knowing things that others are unable or unwilling to know, is the price of carrying the seeds of a greater vision and a greater life, seeds which must be planted and tended to, to grow.
Bhargav_Columbus:  MVS- Thank you
Jos_Netherlands:  Thank you Marshall
Tonia_Denmark:  Patricia, and seeing if you are in the hot waters or cold waters, what will come ahead? From above in the skies or below in the waters? I see many eyes will be needed with so much to be aware of
Inhee_Korea:  @Patricia thank you for “we are going somewhere, we are being Called somewhere, yet our attention and response to detail along way will either make the meeting with Destiny be so, or perhaps not….”
Kristina_Boulder:  Building strength seems to be important for me at this time in my life, something I need to become better at. “You are going to need a tremendous amount of energy in the future, and you must gather your resources together. You must gather your strength and build your focus. If your time and life are being spent mindlessly in all directions, you will not have the power to do this, for power here represents concentration. If your life is not focused and concentrated, then your energy is being lost in many different places. Now you must plug up the gaps. Now you must reclaim what is being lost. Now you must gather together all of your strength, for you will need it for the difficult times ahead…” The Deep Evaluation.
Tom_SanFrancisco:  seeing: a giant horseshoe in the sky made by a chemtrail plane making a U turn yesterday. Knowing: it is not water vapor.
Ed_USA:  Thank you so much, Marshall. You are on my mind every day. I touch three or four people a week with the NMFG in my work. I am amazed and invigorated by the visions you share. I frequently play the ebooks on YouTube.
rayhobbs_Colorado:  It will take great presence mind, highly developed skills to be able to do this but if humanity is to function in this Greater Community of life it must elevate its abilities in this regard, especially for those individuals that are destined to become real seers. It is a very important role in engaging with the Greater Community. Here the individual probably have natural inclinations and endowments that give them a greater advantage in this matter but they still must train and prepare. A training and preparation very different from anything taught in your universities or educational institutions. They take these basic skills and all the arenas of applications and elevate it to a very high degree. They can sit for days …. (The Art of Seeing)

Ed_USA:  Nasi Novare Coram to all. Good luck in surfing the Great Waves of Change. We are in for quite a ride. Indded, it has already begun.
Thérèse:  I seemed to remember that I was able to access “THE ONE BOOK” ONLINE … IS THAT CORRECT OR DID I IMAGINE THIS?
Reed_Society:  As the campfire chat comes to a close, I invite everyone to visit the Society’s experimental 24/7 video stream of the New Message, continue the chat there but now in a public square that can be found by others. The more who view the stream and chat here, the more discoverable the New Message may instantly become. https://www.youtube.co…/live
Kahala_Oregon:  Thank you Marshall, and everyone, NNC. So grateful to be here.
Ayesha_Society:  Thank you in sharing all that you did today. This is a really great start and beginning to the new school session on the New World. We have more territory to cover together in the next two months…who knows where we will go. NNC , until next week.
Virgie_near Seattle:  Thank you, everyone! Nasi Novare Coram.
Douglas_St.Paul:  I gain strength from this being together. See you next week.
Will_Society:  Thank you all.
Shawn_Moose Jaw:  Nasi Novare Coram
Joe_UK:  Thank you All. “Life is never made unbearable by circumstances, but only by lack of meaning and purpose.” Viktor Frankl
jeanine_Society:  @Therese – the Onebook is being rolled out as it comes available online: see this link to start from the beginning: http://www.newmessage….ume-1
Jorge_Spain:  Thank you @Reed
Jos_Netherlands:  Thanks everybody. NNC
Ann_UK:  Thank you everyone for sharing. I have found today’s chat has given a lot to think about. NNC.
Hyeonam_Korea:  Thank you sharing the Deep Evaluation of GWC revealation, Kristina.
Jeanne_Boulder:  We are so blessed to have campfire chat, that to all of you:*)
Jeanne_Boulder:  THANKS TO ALL OF YOU

Alison_boulder:  @All – Share what the Great Waves of Change and the New World mean to you with others by assisting the Society in outreach. Advocacy Gatherings are weekly meetings on Thursdays, held online at Uberconference.com/NewMessage.

Here, we move in unified communication from the source and to the world, providing an expanding platform that supports the Messenger in his task. We’ll see you at either 7 GMT or 6:30 MST– all are invited!

Dominic_UK:  Thank you everyone for this time together. NNC, may we all be well and moving with life.
Frederick_UK:  Thank you every oune and good evening , NASI NOVARE CORAM.
rayhobbs_Colorado:  @Tom_SanFrancisco Not everyone is going to awaken to this not everyone is going to learn to prepare so it is up to those individuals in small groups of people to establish this emphasis upon human unity and cooperation, the recognition of necessity. You must see that those who are flying around in your skies are not tourists they are not here on a science project they are not part of some university project from some other world, … these are resource explorers….
Jennie_Netherlands:  Thank you all for your wisdom and sharing. Nasi Novare Coram
Adria_Poland:  Thank you all! Nasi Novare Coram
Raoul_Australia:  Thank you Reed, that’s great!
Robert_Society:  Thank you everyone. Nasi Novare Coram
Jim B. Upstate NY:  Thank you MVS @ 11:57! We are the seeds in the world that are being cultivated in our practice to give and serve the world. And this quote always comes to mind from Step 155 “As you give yourself you receive and in this you earn the Ancient Law that to give is to receive.” My practice is my gift to God and to myself. I am receiving the gift to give it the world through the vehicle of my mind, my body and Knowledge. I feel this so strongly. May it be so!
Dominic_UK:  Thanks again, Reed. That video stream is such a gift.
Alison_boulder:  The live stream is like opening a NM book to a random page…which never feels random.
Jeanne_Boulder:  Therese did you see my private chat?
shane_NZ:  thank you everyone. Nasi Novare Coram
Joyanne-Canada:  true Alison, I am enjoying it.
Tonia_Denmark:  True that, Alison
Patricia_Society:  Paul, Kari and all, thank you so much. “What speaks to me here is “things you must do, step by step”. and “You are going to have to be prepared to take dramatic action, and U may have to act alone.”…And Here U must respond when others are not responding. U must take precautions when others are not taking precautions. U must change your circumstances when there appears to be no immediate reason for doing it.”……. So true… So much responsibility on YOU to act… It is up to you….it takes action beyond just thinking about what you must do.”
Reed_Society:  I look forward to meeting over 30 students of the New Message at our meetup in the UK next week. If you are in the UK or Europe, consider joining me and others for this important time together: http://www.newmessage….-2017
Dominic_UK:  @Alison So true
Jeanne_Boulder:  Safe trip Reed
Carol_Society:  Much gratitude to each of you, as you continue to stoke the fires of our Chat each week. We are building something together here, something that could make all the difference in our lives and in the lives of others, if we can allow it. May the week ahead bring us ever closer to Knowledge and where Knowledge wants us to go. Looking forward to our next gathering. Nasi Novare Coram
Cameron_Canada:  Thank you everyone, until next time
rayhobbs_Colorado:  Those intervening in the world today are mercenaries.
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)
MVS Society:  Ed, thank you. Yes we must keep communicating to find the first responders.
Raoul_Australia:  have a safe trip Reed, will be with you in spirit!
Tyyne_Society:  I was at the grocery store early this morning and I overheard a man who works there say to another, “Yeah, I’m stocking bread now because my hours were cut.” She replied, “It’s just crazy”. I’ve been hearing people say this quite a bit recently – It’s just crazy – Without the context of what we now know it probably does seem crazy – the contraction, the signs of perhaps bigger contraction – crazy. Like the young Mihaly Csikszentmihaly who took the train – “Here you must respond when others are not responding. You must take precautions when others are not taking precautions. You must change your circumstances when there appears to be no immediate reason for doing it. You must follow an inner urging and an inner direction, without really understanding what is happening and what your future or the outcome will look like.” – The Great Waves and Your Life
Ed_USA:  Have a nice trip, Reed. A safe one too.
Mellany UK:  Great, Reed! Live video is a strong and growing trend. Wishing you a safe and pleasant journey.
Jim B. Upstate NY:  Safe travels Reed! All minds are connected.
Maureen Boulder:  Certainly fear arises when contemplating the unknown of how/when the Great Waves with personally impact us. When this happens to me I go back and read Step 162: I will not be afraid today. “When you begin to feel its (fear) effects, in whatever manner that it exerts influence upon you, withdraw from it and claim your allegiance to Knowledge.” There’s that word, Carol. Allegiance.
Ed_USA:  @MVS – always happy to spread the NMFG. I spoke with Jordan Maxwell at the Conscious Life Expo in Los Angeles last month. He had heard of your work.
Kristina FL:  Thank you Reed, I find this so important (24/7 video stream of the New Message), specially for those who didnt take the step yet to become a student, but watching and listening to the Revelation from a far.
Keiko_Ita:  Taking an action, I feel some kinds of expansion….I don’t know why, but it grows increasingly.
Maureen Boulder:  “will” personally impact us.
Richmond_UK:  @Reed looking forward to your visit. Safe travels. Nasi Novare Coram.
Adria_Poland:  Have safe trips to the UK Meeting, everyone! I’ll be with you in spirit.
Hyeonam_Korea:  Safe trip Reed.
Don_Upstate NY:  Thank you all for all that you shared. I am especially thankful for the “live” feed on Youtube. Have a safe trip Reed.
Keiko_Ita:  @Reed, Safe trip!
rayhobbs_Colorado:  There are people, unelected officials in your governments who know these things but the population is still ignorant self obsessed and is not yet prepared in the realities of the Greater Community. You are the virgin child in a big metropolis you must learn wisdom and restraint discretion and discernment for there are three things that all worlds in the universe must establish if they are to remain free from outside domination; they must be united, they must be self sufficient and they must be extremely discreet.
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…
rayhobbs_Colorado:  … contains intelligent life at all levels of technological and ethical developments. Not everyone in the Greater Community is predatory but as it is in the world there are individuals and groups representing many different agendas motivated by a broad range of intentions. The critical thing that you must know now if you have the strength and the courage to consider these things is that advanced technology creates an increased need for resources. (New Message on Life in the Universe)
Reed_Society:  The Society has been streaming nonstop for 5 days on YouTube, and will be experimenting with this and other means of broadcasting to the world, in time broadcasting video of Marshall, both pre-recorded and live. The more who view the stream the more findable it becomes on YouTube.
Reed_Society:  Thank you everyone
Dominic_UK:  @Reed I won’t be able to be there, but I’ll think of you all on that day.
Hyeonam_Korea:  Thank you all sharing your experiences. May we strength with K. NNC
Inhee_Korea:  @Patricia “So much responsibility on YOU to act… It is up to you….it takes action beyond just thinking about what you must do.” I will keep your words in my mind. Thank you
Kari_H_Finland:  Thank you for this chat. Nasi Novare Coram.
jeanine_Society:  Good to see our Chat Community keep growing – I saw ‘140’ at one point today. Take care as you move about in The New World this week… Nasi Novare Coram.
Ed_USA:  @Reed Looking forward to engaging the live stream.
Sang_CA_Korea:  Thank you everyone. Nasi Novare Coram.
Mellany UK:  Deep gratitude for Marshall, Patricia, Reed, The Society and all students. Thank you Carol and Ayesha, for hosting. Nasi Novare Coram.
Keiko_Ita:  Thank you for being here…. Take care, Frederick Nasi Novare Coram
Raoul_Australia:  @Tyyne, I know what you mean, in Italy people have been saying that for many years ‘It’s just crazy’ or similar things, without knowing why and how.
rayhobbs_Colorado:  Never think that God’s revelations to humanity are complete for they must be ongoing and these revelations are given at critical times in history to prepare humanity to meet a great challenge and to use a great opportunity. The great challenge before you now is facing the Great Waves of Change in the world with all of your energy and commitment and to face the reality of the intervention in the Greater Community with all of your energy and commitment and the opportunity for you is to escape from the hell of your own self obsession, to end human conflict to generate human unity based upon necessity upon a Greater Community awareness, to meet the Great Waves of Change and to offset their great hazards and to turn your defenses against the Greater Community for you must protect the world from intervention for there is intervention now and there will be intervention in the future. Nasi Novare Coram
Alison_boulder:  Translators and international advocates have been stepping up in a lot of ways lately. Thank you.
Betty_UK:  Thank you all and much gratitude
Tonia_Denmark:  May you all have a strong and powerful meeting in UK. Will be with you in Spirit. Safe trip, Reed.
Dominic_UK:  @Ray what revelation is that paragraph from?
rayhobbs_Colorado:  New Message on Life in the Universe
Raoul_Australia:  Thank you Alison, the coordination has been key!
Raoul_Australia:  I often think how today many people feel drawn to God and they find distorted religions of the past, because they could not venture into a New Message in its early stages, but it is encouraging to know that if we survive the Great Waves and do our work to support the Message, as a race, some day people will find the New Revelation that has taken hold in the world, so they will not need to be pioneers to embrace it.
Manuel ;-):  Many thanks for all your contributions. I have learned a lot today. C u next week…
rayhobbs_Colorado:  http://newknowledgelib…free/ Free … 24/7 … Nasi Novare Coram
Mike_LF_CAL:  Raoul, your statement is an extremely critical reminder that we must never forget, there is in fact ONLY ONE TEACHING dealing with intervention from the GC and that is as we all know TNMFG!!!! Thanlks Raoul!
Patricia_Society:  Adria, thank you. Yes the “Holding-our-lives-up-to-the-Light-Box” Practice, as a radiologist would examine an xray, “the entire teaching (pure and powerful, spoke to me deeply. I have read it twice and screened my life against the Teaching: am I doing it Knowledge-way, am I serious enough with my life?”
Raoul_Australia:  Thank you Mike! it is so clearly stated…and I so much trust it!
jeanine_Society:  To report problems or get support: newmessage.org/help
Tonia_Denmark:  Thank you all. See you next week.
Tyyne_Society:  @Raoul – yes… knowing something is “crazy”. Knowing something is shifting under their feet. Big change happening. I pray more people with gain the ability to really listen to the promptings of Knowledge to make the changes necessary and to make it to higher ground, to make it to the people, to make it to service. May you/we as students make it into the clear in order to serve this mission and keep moving with Knowledge. For Knowledge knows the way.
Raoul_Australia:  May it be so, Tyyne!
Ed_USA:  Must be going. Nasi Novare Coram to all. See you next week.
Alison_boulder:  @Tyyne.. “make it into the clear”…yes thank you. I keep hearing “clear the way”
Jim B. Upstate NY:  Thank you all! Had our 1st visit from a NM student Don P. is staying with us! Oh the conversations and the meaning that it brings to our lives! NNC
rayhobbs_Colorado:  God gives humanity what it needs not what it expects or wants. You pray to God for little things and God gives you the great things. You do not know your predicament or your vulnerability but God speaks to that. You do not know your true priorities in life but God speaks to your true priorities.
carolyn_ct:  @anyone: the passage on not falling for the dichotomy of being loving vs bring fearful: does that strike you as meaning not to be afraid but not to fall into a behavior of loving kindness either?
carolyn_ct:  *being not bring
MaryL_Boulder:  Thank you everyone for taking your inner and outer preparations seriously and with honesty. May this hour of coming together during the chat carry us through the rest of the week and may we not forget that so much depends upon us. Nasi novare coram
Insuk_Korea:  Thank you Marshall,Patricia, Reed and All. Nasi Novare Coram
rayhobbs_Colorado:  When you are with knowledge, you can afford to be kind because you are not rushing about the world trying to fulfill your goals and assure your security. You are able to be in present time with far greater effectiveness and far greater presence of mind. If you are not rushing about, you become aware of what is here now, and you become responsive to the genuine needs of those whom you are meant to serve. You can afford to be compassionate when you are with Knowledge because Knowledge recognizes where people are without demanding that they be different. Knowledge fosters understanding based upon acceptance. It does not project hopeful ideas, yet it does not deny the needs of anyone. It moves you towards certain people and away from others without condemnation. It teaches you over time to recognize that there are stages in life, and each stage has its advantages and liabilities. (WGC2.30 Kindness)
65931:  “”MVS Society: It is more important to live with bigger questions, than to base your life on simple answers. This keeps you looking, listening and responding to the real signs and movement of life around you. Being careful, attentive and patient here are very important. “Like the man crossing the winter stream.” Tao”” WOW!! it was al I needed! Thank you! I am just in a very big loop, looking for answers
Raoul_Australia:  Thank you all for another inspiring chat, see you real soon, Nasi Novare Coram
Jim B. Upstate NY:  @ 65931 in your search begins a new life my friend. What is your name?
Tyyne_Society:  @Alison – “clear the way”. Yes, to clear the way to come into greater service and greater alignment with what Knowledge has known all along, step by step, held within each of us, within waiting for us to become ready to listen to it and move with it – building a living relationship with Knowledge. I heard that clearly in “The Great Waves and Your Life” saying “…only Knowledge within you can guide you specifically…”
Dominic_UK:  @Carolyn To me, it means not being afraid to acknowledge our deeper inclinations about things and not dismiss them out of concern that we are being “fearful” for thinking about/feeling these things. People especially seem to have this hangup about the Intervention, those who want to believe that they are here for beneficial reasons, anyway. The ironic thing is that people who betray their conscious in this way are actually doing so becaue they are afraid – afraid to acknowledge how teir experience, how they actually feel about something.
Dominic_UK:  And the whole “being loving” thing goes hand in hand with this. It’s a like a smokescreen that people can use to avoid their own Knowledge when it presents uncomfortabvle things to them. That’s my perception of this issue, anyway.
rayhobbs_Colorado:  You cannot encompass the mysterious nature of Knowledge within you nor can they describe really how Knowledge works how it functions how it manifests itself why it is here and what it is here to serve.
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

carolyn_ct:  Thank you Dominic. I think I understand. There is a pressure to not bring up anything that may contradict the Normalcy Bias. One that we have unconsciously adopted, especially surrounding issues of life beyond this world… We have become such good self-editors.
rayhobbs_Colorado:  What does discretion mean? It means the ability to know when to speak and when not to speak.
Virgie_near Seattle:  @carolyn ct: I’ve been wondering about the whole “it is not about love versus fear” thing, too. For me, it has to do with my ideas about love versus actual love. I need to break away from my desire to project an image of being loving and my idealistic definitions of love.
rayhobbs_Colorado:  What is this doubt and what is this self that you doubt? This is an important question because it leads you to the discovery that there are really two aspects to you. There is the personal aspect and what we call the Impersonal aspect. The personal aspect is your personal mind, which includes your personality and all of your habits, interests and idiosyncrasies. It is the part of you that you have acquired during your time so far in the world. It is all the parts of your mind that are conditioned by the world around you and by your primary relationships. It is the part of your mind that is filled with memories and has patterns of thinking and behavior, some of which are very difficult to change. This is the self that you doubt because this self is frail, uncertain and inconsistent. It has failed you, and it has deceived you. It is fully capable of presenting lies and misusing real facts for personal gain. It is deceptive. It is often dishonest. It is weak. It is conniving. It is all…
rayhobbs_Colorado:  … these things, but it is not evil. It is simply protecting itself from a world that is too large and too incomprehensible for it to comprehend or understand. It does not feel safe in the world, and so it arms itself against all anticipated threats and possibilities of loss. It arms itself against embarrassment. It arms itself against anything which might threaten its social and physical survival. This is the personal aspect of you, and this is the self that you doubt. (WGC2.27 Self-Doubt)
Joyanne-Canada:  Reed should we share this YTube then?, or is it just for students at this time?
Ilhun_Korea:  Thank you All. Nasi Novare Coram.
carolyn_ct:  @Virgie, yes, the idea that we fall into, our responsibility to ‘appear as’, to not upset those whose world views depend on us keeping up a false impression. But paraphrasing what Ray just quoted (thanks Ray): discretion means knowing when to speak and not to speak. That is also part of the GW message too I think…
92437:  Have a save trip Reed!See you all next week in England.Thank you .Nasi Novare Coram.
Dominic_UK:  @Carolyn That’s true. Normalcy Bias – that’s a useful term, I haven’t heard that before. I remember the Allies defining humanity’s superstition as our tendency to deny things that we don’t understand.
carolyn_ct:  Battery is going. Thank you MVS, Patrica, Reed, Ayesha, Tyyne, and fellow students for your insightful sharing and guidance today. Another beautiful chat practice. NNC. Until next week.
Dominic_UK:  *human superstition, I should have written.

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?
