Appreciation of others is warranted, but devotion represents a far greater participation. It is the pinnacle of relationships between individuals. It is the highest expression of relationship with another person. It holds a great promise, yet it is feared by those who do not experience it. Devotion is not given by attempting to use another to fulfill your ambitions and desires. Devotion is a natural outpouring of your True Self. It cares not for success or loss… What are you devoted to? Read more about devotion and commitment.

“Your purpose is to discover your Spirit, follow Spirit and let Spirit shape and redirect your life. Your Calling is what Spirit asks you specifically to do once you are ready to move in a specific direction. It is here that your relationships must become connected to your Calling, and not just to your Purpose. In essence all relationships can serve your Purpose if understood correctly. But only a few are connected to your real Calling. If the New Message from God is your calling then all your core relationships will need to be connected to that.” — Marshall Vian Summers

“So at some point, hopefully, you get serious about your life…. You begin to see there is a deeper current, a deeper need, a deeper reality within you, and you see this in others, and you begin to see it everywhere…. Whatever you are doing today is either helping you or hindering you in this great discovery. There are no neutral relationships. The people you associate with are either helping you or hindering you in this great discovery. Even if they are wonderful, loving people, they are either hindering you or helping you in this great discovery. For God knows you cannot make this discovery alone. You will need relationships that are associated with your higher purpose. You will need to be with people who are making the same discoveries themselves. You will need this reinforcement. You will need this companionship. You will need this to begin to have faith in the greater purpose that has brought you here, in the Greater Reality that is within you. You will need relationships to bear witness to this. You need to be free to find these relationships.” — Freedom
“Alone you have no meaning. There are no meaningful individuals in the universe. An individual is a potential for relationship. It is the relationships that are important. It is what you are connected to and who you represent that gives meaning to your existence here.” — Living the Way of Knowledge

This is something very different, very unique and very special. You will have very few of these relationships. If you are fortunate and if you prepare wisely, several of these relationships will come into being in your experience… Read more about whom you will meet.
