 It makes a difference
 It makes a difference for me knowing that your there.
It makes a difference for me knowing you’re not going to quit, because what we are doing is too important for humanity.
It makes a difference for me knowing you’re going through struggles from time to time as well, but you keep taking that next step.
It makes a difference for me knowing God is doing amazing things in your life.
It makes a difference for me knowing that you are inspiring even though you may not realize it.
It makes a difference for me knowing that you want to be here not because you have to be.
It makes a difference for me knowing that you show up consistently day after day after day.
It makes a difference for me knowing that you truly care and demonstrate it with your powerful actions.
It makes a difference for me knowing that we are following the same path of the New Message, the path back to God.
It makes a difference for me knowing that we make a difference together, yes we do and yes we will, step by step, day after day.

The outer edge of inner struggle

Is it not then difficult at times to struggle through life’s enslavement.
Especially when you’re the lubricity between the tread and life’s rough pavement.
When the newness of the new translates into something deeper than you knew.
And you realize that your real purpose here is more to do with do.
When it feels like you’re all alone, your sine wave breaching the nadir.
There are those that travel with you, yes companions’ related crusaders.
So take a knee then and refresh, it’s but a part of this step laden journey.
God has sent us here for this with Knowledge keeping us off the gurney.
For those that thought it possible to depart life with a treasure and purse.
Ask yourself this question, have you ever seen a U-Haul connected to a hearse?
So it’s settled now and you’ve turned the corner, quitting is not an option.
With the stakes so high don’t even try by placing yourself on up for adoption.
The bridge a fundamental, each pillar well fashioned fitted and notched.
To do less negates the meeting, the meeting above all meetings, that cannot be botched.
A certain blessing it is to be at the outset, an austere spoke in the wheel.
What was once a fiber of fragility is now a cord of confidence, the keel.
May we be ever mindful our every thought and behavior, a demonstration a teaching.
If we but follow the Way of Knowledge, the mountain summit is within our reaching.
So then, when you’re down to the bare essentials, is there really much to juggle.
Is it not but another threshold forward, the outer edge of inner struggle.

The line below the bottom line
Narrow is the gate and heaven cant wait so beware.
Three questions here and one question there you must bear.
Where to be,*Who to be with and What to be doing.
So then, did you do it or were you just there viewing?
Was there recognition of the mission, did you see below the sea.
Knowledge can only be known you know, that is the mystery key.
The line below the bottom line, its not about me and mine.
We come here to complete here or were back again in line.
Everyone needs to make the journey at some ensuing point.
And the sooner is the better than getting bent all out of joint.
If you cant give it and share it within you, yes it will recede.
It’s the assignment we’re talking about, the New Message seed.
When you’ve toiled up that mountain perhaps its summit fogged in.
Is it then a wasted existence, no, just look below where you’ve been.
Are you honest are you true, is it permeating its way through.
And do not think you know, but have the will to follow and do.
Narrow is the gate and heaven cant wait so beware.
Three questions here and one question there you must bear.
Where to be,*Who to be with and What to be doing.
So then, Did you do it or were you just there viewing?

What are the chances?
Chances are, it’s not by chance that you are here having been drawn, guided, and encouraged to this place at this time.
Chances are, it’s not by chance that if you are reading this, it’s your time and you have been called to something you’re discovering you can’t figure out and you can’t turn away from and you may not really know what to do.
Chances are, it’s not by chance that if you miss this calling, it may be a very long time before conditions are such that your time may be present again, ever mindful that what connects the present to eternity is perhaps that of direction not time.
Chances are, it’s not by chance that taking the Steps to Knowledge with an open mind and an open heart, consistently and honestly will change your life so subtly, so profoundly and amazingly, you will want everyone in the world to experience it.
Chances are, it’s not by chance that no matter how long you have been on the journey and no matter how high up the mountain you are, you will have days of inner realization and days of outer struggle.
Chances are, it’s not by chance that no matter how strong or capable or resourceful or experienced or intelligent you are, you weren’t designed to do your part alone, apart from Knowledge, apart from people.
Chances are, it’s not by chance that the Society for the New Message from God is that relentless bedrock and beacon of illumination that is a steadfast Power and Presence of Knowledge for the World Wide Community.
What are the chances? What are your chances?

In Knowledge we focus
May we pledge to one another this oath, these words of intent and honor.
To continue this year ahead and together we tread, as alone we are but a goner.
The companionship die is but cast, the mystery of which shan’t be asked.
In Knowledge we focus, not swayed by the crocus, may we then be up for the task.
The year in review is the former, no time in the year ahead as a bench warmer.
We have but been called and not to be stalled, but in Knowledge we become the performer.
The companionship die is but cast, the mystery of which shan’t be asked.
In Knowledge we focus, not swayed by the crocus, may we then be up for the task.
A journey of opportunities lay before us, reclaiming an ancient relationship it is thus.
If we could make it go faster it would probably be disaster, so may we stay on the Path without fuss.
The companionship die is but cast, the mystery of which shan’t be asked.
In Knowledge we focus, not swayed by the crocus, may we then be up for the task.
Days of haze and days of craze will sometimes challenge our try.
But always be aware that there’s strong loving care, the seen and Unseen are but nigh.
The companionship die is but cast, the mystery of which shan’t be asked.
In Knowledge we focus, not swayed by the crocus, may we then be up for the task.
So in closing may this be our prayer, our earnest cohesion brought to bear.
Like the phoenix we rise, ever guided by the wise as we ascend ever upward this stair.
The companionship die is but cast, the mystery of which shan’t be asked.
In Knowledge we focus, not swayed by the crocus, may we then be up for the task.
