Step One Hundred and Thirty
Individuals will come to you through mysterious means because you are cultivating Knowledge. As you have relationships with one another on a personal level, you also have relationships on the level of Knowledge. It is this level that you will begin to experience, in small increments at first. Eventually, if you pursue your preparations appropriately, this experience will grow and become quite profound for you.
You do not need to seek for relationships. You need only give yourself to your preparation and have confidence that people will come to you when you need them. This will require that you assess your needs in contrast to your wishes. If your wishes do not represent your genuine needs, then you will confuse your life terribly. You will place a burden upon yourself and upon those with whom you are engaged that can only oppress them, and you as well. Without this oppression, people will be free to come to you as you truly need them.
Remind yourself of this upon the hour today, and in your two longer practice periods allow your mind to enter receptivity. Allow yourself to feel the presence of your Teachers. Do not exacerbate yourself with desires for relationship and your requirements for individuals or for what they may possess. Have confidence today that Knowledge will draw all people to you as you truly need them.
Practice 130: Two 30-minute practice periods. Hourly practice.
“There are a great many attractions in the world that wish to be known as relationship. Indeed, they are not real relationship, for they are without purpose. In fact they obstruct purpose. These attractions may be quite powerful because they appear to possess certain qualities that the individuals involved feel they are personally lacking. If these relationships were seen in truth, they would be seen to lack substance, for the motivating force behind them is need and uncertainty, rather than purpose. In order for these relationships to be sustained, the need and uncertainty that are their source must be maintained, for when the need and uncertainty are gone, so goes the relationship.”
P.S. I have found a native Russian girl here in Russia to help translate the New Message into Russian. She is my proofreader and as dedicated to the New Message as I am. She is a wonder! Thank you, Amina!
