View Full Version : "Knowledge" definition

I wasn't clear exactly what was meant by "knowledge" until I found:
"In the Greater Community, spirituality is embodied in
what we call Knowledge, Knowledge meaning the intelligence
of Spirit and the movement of Spirit within you. This empow-
ers you to know rather than only believe. This gives you
immunity from persuasion and manipulation, for Knowledge
cannot be manipulated by any worldly power or force. This
gives life to your religions and hope for your destiny. "
Just sharing in case any new members are wondering.

Glad you found one definition. There are many. It is like trying to describe a multifaceted crystal, where each facet is a different expression of it. Knowledge is spoken of in several places in the New Message Teachings. Here are some more:
From Steps to Knowledge
WHAT IS KNOWLEDGE?
L ET US SAY THAT KNOWLEDGE is not the things that are usually
associated with it. It is not ideas. It is not a body of information.
It is not a system of belief. It is not a process of self evaluation.
It is the great mystery of your life. Its outward
manifestations are profound intuition, great insight, inexplicable
knowing, wise perception in the present and in the future and wise
understanding of the past. But despite these great achievements of
mind, Knowledge is greater than this. It is your True Self, a Self that is
not apart from life."

And one of my favorite quotes... from "Resisting the Intervention" which is available on CD http://www.newknowledgelibrary.org/products/Resisting-the-Intervention.html
"In the Universe, the power and the presence of Knowledge is the greatest power there is—greater than technology, greater than ideology, greater than persuasion. The Intervention is not using this Knowledge and is not aware of it, or it would not be intervening in the world, for Knowledge represents a fundamental ethical foundation. You cannot attack or exploit another, guided by Knowledge. And those who are guided by Knowledge cannot be exploited, cannot be fooled, cannot be seduced."
