New Message Pathway
Have you just arrived and it’s not contrived, it’s real and you’ve waited so long?
At first it seems odd and then you are awed, finally I’ve found where I belong.
Have you ever wandered, thought about and pondered, how did I go so astray?
Does it really matter, the former or latter, once finding the New Message pathway?
So what then is real, is it more to do with feel, how can I know that I know?
Well it’s not the intellect, yet requires some circumspect, indeed do not forgo.
Have you ever wandered, thought about and pondered, how did I go so astray?
Does it really matter, the former or latter, once finding the New Message pathway?
In the field of dreams it perhaps just seems, something the imagination weaves.
It’s different now, the practice teaching me how, the true light never fades or leaves.
Have you ever wandered, thought about and pondered, how did I go so astray?
Does it really matter, the former or latter, once finding the New Message pathway?
The horizon a lens, and the truth it sends, the presence within stronger each day.
May our demonstration be unified and amplified, with intention and without delay.
Have you ever wandered, thought about and pondered, how did I go so astray?
Does it really matter, the former or latter, once finding the New Message pathway?
Below the surface seeds are grown, it’s God’s very own, a resonating deeper heartbeat.
Appease not society and tease not sobriety, our mission with God, a must to complete.
Have you ever wandered, thought about and pondered, how did I go so astray?
Does it really matter, the former or latter, once finding the New Message pathway?

Tilting the scales
Awakened from confinement and now on assignment, it begins with an apprenticeship.
A beginning student, a must to be prudent, following Knowledge on this greater field trip.
There is a relevance, a greater benevolence, unifying our efforts and tilting the scales.
It’s a deliberate decision, a devotion to this vision, it’s right as rain and straight as rails.
In the world’s rank and file, yet from elsewhere it’s been a while, a forgotten citizenship.
Now through awareness, a sense of revived rareness, with the urgency of a snapping whip.
There is a relevance, a greater benevolence, unifying our efforts and tilting the scales.
It’s a deliberate decision, a devotion to this vision, its right as rain and straight as rails.
Kindled called mortals drawn to waiting portals, engaging the work, a natural craftsmanship.
From challenges a blister, from calluses a resistor, trusting in Knowledge is the greater grip.
There is a relevance, a greater benevolence, unifying our efforts and tilting the scales.
It’s a deliberate decision, a devotion to this vision, it’s right as rain and straight as rails.
A foregone conclusion, otherwise delusion, responsibility isn’t delegated, it’s leadership.
Now upon this greater stage, that’s beyond the previous page, it’s a time to train and equip.
There is a relevance, a greater benevolence, unifying our efforts and tilting the scales.
It’s a deliberate decision, a devotion to this vision, it’s right as rain and straight as rails.
There is a progression which leads to expression, a realized rendezvous with relationship.
On this journey to arrive, in service to keep Knowledge alive, it’s diligence to step not skip.
There is a relevance, a greater benevolence, unifying our efforts and tilting the scales.
It’s a deliberate decision, a devotion to this vision, it’s right as rain and straight as rails.

New Message Call
I’ve covered such distance to justify my existence, running upon life’s squirrel cage.
Been having this feeling within revealing, how do I approach the world’s next stage.
It quenches the unquenchable and satisfies insatiable, it’s God’s New Message call.
It’s not the substitutes, it’s “Knowledge” that constitutes, the way beyond this thrall.
It’s anchored in my harbor taking root within my arbor, a time to receive and respond.
A deeper sense within me, a presence to free me, I’m now making this turn and bond.
It quenches the unquenchable and satisfies insatiable, it’s God’s New Message call.
It’s not the substitutes, it’s “Knowledge” that constitutes, the way beyond this thrall.
It’s the true empirical, this amazing miracle, from the fringes back to God’s own heart.
Yes a difficult trail, yet the most relevant to prevail, and the training so essential a part.
It quenches the unquenchable and satisfies insatiable, it’s God’s New Message call.
It’s not the substitutes, it’s “Knowledge” that constitutes, the way beyond this thrall.
When backed into the corner faced with the scorner, the mental environment presents.
Even when mired and way over tired, may my resistance not be overcome by events.
It quenches the unquenchable and satisfies insatiable, it’s God’s New Message call.
It’s not the substitutes, it’s “Knowledge” that constitutes, the way beyond this thrall.
From our Ancient Home beyond the invisible dome, there’s a true and loving applaud.
Yes from bud to blossom it is truly awesome, God does what works, here and abroad.
It quenches the unquenchable and satisfies insatiable, it’s God’s New Message call.
It’s not the substitutes, it’s “Knowledge” that constitutes, the way beyond this thrall.

The weight of this evolving wait
Through toil and trial there’s meaningful shift, yet what must I do with this separation this rift?
Upon this treadmill of travail I do learn, that taking the journey is not fleeting nor swift.
There’s a measure and stride to things there is, however accelerated our gait.
There’s a universal burden we encounter thus, yes the weight of this evolving wait.
Perhaps you’ve realized a resonance, it’s like a singing yet not like a song.
How long will it take, are we there yet? Patience just seems oh so long.
There’s a measure and stride to things there is, however accelerated our gait.
There’s a universal burden we encounter thus, yes the weight of this evolving wait.
So to abide with and embody this patience, without sliding and hiding and such.
It’s a greater pathway that connects and resides, not a stopgap or substitute crutch.
There’s a measure and stride to things there is, however accelerated our gait.
There’s a universal burden we encounter thus, yes the weight of this evolving wait.
There are two active halves so serving, that which are unified and whole.
One part that contemplates so deeply, the other a still and silent role.
There’s a measure and stride to things there is, however accelerated our gait.
There’s a universal burden we encounter thus, yes the weight of this evolving wait.
So to possess this quality this patience, demands much and including enduring.
Yet indeed is it not so assuring, to witness the evidence our maturing.
There’s a measure and stride to things there is, however accelerated our gait.
There’s a universal burden we encounter thus, yes the weight of this evolving wait.

It’s encouraging…

It’s encouraging when no matter what time of day or night you visit the many outreach elements of the New Message from God, you can experience continuous communication being shared from other students and potential future students.
It’s encouraging when you can see and hear the live broadcasts of the Society even from afar. And although it may not be “the “scared rendezvous we are yet destined for, it is perhaps ” a “ waypoint rendezvous and we made it and we were ready and we received.
It’s encouraging to realize and experience that Knowledge is the touchstone of authenticity for truth and it is present within all of us.
It’s encouraging that the New Message from God provides that unshakeable center of gravity for the World Wide Community present and future.
It’s encouraging when the Messenger calls you out and says “Do this and you will be uplifted” and even though we perhaps can’t begin to understand the magnitude and enormity of this word “uplifted” we trust it because we must.
It’s encouraging that qualified translators are helping to make the New Message from God available in as many worldwide languages as possible.
It’s encouraging when we are called and we don’t know why but we respond because we must and what at first makes no sense becomes the only thing that does make sense.
It’s encouraging when you can’t find any flaws, contradictions, short comings, inadequacies with the New Message or the Messenger and you know it’s the real deal… because you Know!
It’s encouraging when you realize that you don’t need a PhD in something to understand the New Message because all that other stuff speaks to the outward surface mind where the New Message speaks to the continuity of the inner heart and inner mind.
It’s encouraging when you realize that whether your practicing the 1st Step to Knowledge or the 365th, your on the path and moving forward making a difference and what you are doing is important and matters and affects everyone else.
It’s encouraging when you may wonder if you have been on this world before when opportunity was presented to you and you were called and you didn’t respond and you are back here again and its happened perhaps dozens of times or maybe hundreds or even thousands or more! And somehow we are blessed yet again with this opportunity and encouragement.
It’s encouraging when things in your life that you thought were deeply important and priority and meaningful, slowly and subtly began to fall away with increasingly less and less resistance. And Knowledge begins to take on a more significant roll in your life.
What is encouraging for you?
