The New Message from God goes to great lengths to say people have a purpose for being in the world. The New Message from God tells me I have a mission in my life to fulfill. The New Message from God tells you you have come to work in the world. The New Message from God tells us there is a role for us to play in the world. All these ideas imply accomplishing specific tasks, meeting certain people, giving certain gifts.
What is the fragrance of Knowledge?
And yet, part of this mission, part of this work, part of this role seems to be cultivating a certain way of being. Steps to Knowledge is the book of spiritual practice of the New Message from God. Step 353 of its 365 steps is “My True Home is in God.” The following step is “I must experience my True Home while I am in the world.” Here is a bit from that step.
“In your true home you are happy, you are included, you are complete, you are in relationship, you are a complete participant, you are essential and you are meaningful.”
I imagine that the Garden of Eden must have been something like this. I imagine that the life of the Prodigal Son, in the house of his generous, patient father, was something like this. I imagine that it is part of my role, my work, my mission to demonstrate these qualities. Being happy. Showing my inclusion in life. Not having to do or have anything to feel better about myself. Knowing and being known. Not waiting any longer for the world to begin. Doing what is necessary. Knowing I am necessary. I am told that if I approach Knowledge, the part of me that never left God, I will demonstrate these qualities.
What is the fragrance of Knowledge? I become happier just by thinking about it. I’m working on it.
