God Found Me
My life has greatly changed since I started studying the New Message from God. I moved to a new country. I got divorced. I changed careers. I have left many old friends and let go of family obligations. God found me and I pray at night.
These are significant changes. However, they are just the outer manifestations of the New Message in my life. Inside, I am learning and growing in ways I previously didn’t know were possible.
I now can sense and articulate a destiny and a purpose in my life that previously I didn’t think possible or perhaps that I didn’t believe I deserved. This is so empowering and at the same time settling for me.
I am learning about the importance of discretion and discernment. I am learning to value stillness. I am learning to follow, to join and to let go of my separate identity. I am learning to value Knowledge, to value myself, value my life and to feel Knowledge moving in my life.
I now know that I live a much greater life beyond this life alone, and this changes everything in my outlook on people, the world and my life. In the past, the world seemed random and chaotic. Now I see the world as a reflection of Knowledge or the denial of Knowledge.
In the past I thought that my career and work was the end goal. I now know how my work in the world is just a means to an end to serve a higher purpose with others who are called to this New Message.
God Found Me Like a Speck on the Ocean
In the past, I saw my life as random, or the luck of the draw. And now, I feel a part of a grander plan. I feel so fortunate to have been found, like the New Message describes, found along with others, like a speck on the ocean for a greater purpose.
This grand plan is far beyond my understanding but I still can participate fully with my acquired worldly skills and talents in concert with inherited Knowledge. After participating in vital life-changing events such as this Vigil and at Encampment, I feel a great burning in me to help the Messenger in his Mission to bring this New Message into the world. Sometimes, that fire burns me and sometimes it burns others in this community. I am learning to hold this and contain this fire without damage.
In the past, I was independent, a lone wolf and proud of it. Now, I find myself enmeshed in a community of purpose and destiny. I meet people from around the world who share this destiny with me and it is amazing to feel resonance and affinity with people who don’t speak my language or share my culture. I now know I am not alone in this world of Separation and this brings me great comfort and warms my heart.
Now, I am learning to be a part of this interdependent community of the New Message that serves the Messenger, the Angelic Presence and their mission to bring a New Message into the world for the survival and freedom of humanity in the face of the Great Waves of Change and competition from the Greater Community.
I now find myself struggling to learn my place in this great narrative of life, but the struggle is sweet. Every day I wake up and I consider how I may I use my time in the world to further the New Message. I no longer pass time in order to get to the next stimulating event in life. I am happy in the moment for the opportunities it presents itself to serve the Mission – no matter how messy this process may appear to my critical surface mind. In the past, I was burdened by my thoughts and now I am learning to observe the stories I tell myself and not be bound by them.
Most importantly, I am now practicing to follow the deeper voice of Knowledge within me that knows where I need to go, what I need to do and with whom I need to join with. I am not there yet but I feel the pull and I hear the calling so clearly to be here in service to the Messenger in his remaining time. My intentions are clear and nothing has ever felt so right in my life.
