The Power and the Presence watches over you and all people in the world
Waiting for those who are ready
Waiting for those who are ready to awaken
From their deep sleep of desire and disappointment
Watching over the world
Waiting for those minds that seek freedom—
Not just an outer freedom
But an inner freedom
Waiting for the moment of readiness
In the individual.

List of Enlightened People – Do You Agree?

“People think spiritual awakening is all bliss and happiness. Yes, there is a great relief. Yes, there is a great homecoming. But then you begin to experience the predicament that you and the world are in. And though you are not likely to become panicked or terrified, you will go to work very soon, and you will work continuously.” — Living the Way of Knowledge

“You must seek now a different kind of relationship with people who are undergoing a similar process of awakening within themselves, people who are beginning to stir from a long and troubled sleep. You need them now to bear witness to the process that is happening within yourself. Your life is being stirred by a deeper set of needs and by the emergence of a greater purpose.” — The New Message from God

“Spirit is trying to take us somewhere, to move somewhere we have to be impacted. And we will impact others through the movement of our lives.” — Marshall Vian Summers

“Jesus Christ knew he was God. So wake up and find out eventually who you really are. In our culture, of course, they’ll say you’re crazy and you’re blasphemous, and they’ll either put you in jail or in a nut house (which is pretty much the same thing). However if you wake up in India and tell your friends and relations, ‘My goodness, I’ve just discovered that I’m God,’ they’ll laugh and say, ‘Oh, congratulations, at last you found out.” — Alan Watts


“You were not sent into the world to dream of Heaven. You were sent into the world to be of service to the world, to be of service of now a new world, a changing world, a challenging world, and yet a world that has the power to prompt greater human cooperation and to call forth a greater Knowledge that every person carries within them.” — The Voice of Revelation

“As you proceed, you will hear a great deal about spiritual experiences being described or discussed by others. Be discreet. Do not enter into these discussions. They are meaningless by and large. People who talk about these things do not know what they are talking about.” — How Does Revelation Occur In Human Life

“When one realises one is asleep, at that moment one is already half-awake.” — P.D. Ouspensky

“Do not seek refuge in spiritual things, for your purpose is to give to the world.” — Steps to Knowledge

“We who are cultivating this world wish for you to be very kind with yourself. You cannot purify yourself. You cannot cleanse yourself. You cannot lift yourself up. Entering true preparation is entering a process with your Spiritual Family beyond the visible and with individuals in life here in very specific ways. You enroll in these things because you must. Is it right? Yes! That is it. You don’t know what you are signing up for. Goodness, if I were to tell you what you would do if your Knowledge were fulfilled, everyone would run away saying,’I had a different plan for myself!’ But what if I were to say,’If you do this, you will be a person of tremendous happiness. Your nature will be complemented. You will no longer be attempting to be in an idealistic state, to be a perfect person. You will be able to be in the moment because there is no future that you must negotiate. You will see beyond images. You will hear beyond words. You will sense beyond appearances. Life will become transparent to you in this world, and you will begin to see your Ancient Home through the transparency.” — Wisdom from the Greater Community, Giving


“My speaking is meant to shake you awake, not to tell you how to dream better.” — Adyashanti

“Spiritual development… involves spiritual practice of various kinds to enable your mind to think in harmony with Knowledge and to gain a greater perspective and understanding of the world and a thorough appreciation of your nature in relationship to the world.” — Living the Way of Knowledge

“Your purpose in life is not to be enlightened. Your purpose is to live your purpose.” — Marshall Vian Summers

“Time is short for the world. There is no time to spend decades and centuries perfecting yourself or trying to work out your dilemmas. The calling is for now. The hour is late.” — The Initiation

“If you are going to find your calling in life, you must put that in the highest priority. If your purpose for coming here requires this, then it is the greatest value. Fulfilling your social obligations or your biological urges are not as important as this, my God, for we are speaking of the need of the soul. It is the need of the soul to find its purpose and fulfill it in the world, within the circumstances of the world. This is what re-establishes your divine nature. This is what fulfills your commitment to God. This is what ends conflict within you. This is where your true nature becomes integrated. This is where your body serves your mind and your mind serves your Spirit, as they were designed to do. This is where your life comes together. This is where you assume greater responsibilities. This is what satisfies the need of the soul.” — The Age of Women

“You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.” — Swami Vivekananda

“There are many people in the world today who know they must prepare for something, who feel called to a greater participation, who have a sense that their life is more important than the mundane activities of the day. Some will not find their way in the religious traditions of the world because they are being prepared and called for something new in the world. They are more connected to the future than the past, and the future is calling them and pulling them forward.” — The Gift of a New Life

“When you leave this world, if you are successful in cultivating Spirit and in allowing it to give all of its gifts into the world, you will then be able to become one of the Teachers of those who remain behind. In this way, you will fulfill your learning in the world by contributing all that you have acquired in the world to others. In this, your gift is fulfilled and theirs is furthered.” — Steps to Knowledge

The Blessing is upon humanity, for this is a time of Revelation. This is the time when humanity is given a great gift, a great gift to give it purpose and direction facing the difficult and uncertain times ahead. This is the time in which humanity receives a greater understanding of its spirituality, a call for its unity and cooperation and a revelation of its destiny—both within this world and beyond this world within a Greater Community of intelligent life in the universe… Read more about The Blessing.
