“Knowing thyself is only the first step. Only the beginning of the path to Mastery. Yes, you must know thyself, but you must also know what you are not. You must know what not to feed your soul, what not to emulate, what not to become. And then you must become your best self possible. At times, this will mean peeling away parts unnecessary. At others, it will mean taking in what is needed. Change teaches us who we really are. This is as true for Me as it is for all of you. As we are tossed upon the Sea of Fate, our innermost self keeps us afloat.
“Man [as in mankind], you are not the only creatures to endure evolution. We must also become more than We are, to fulfill Ourselves and to fulfill the needs of All to which We are bound. Remember this when your lives are wound in the maelstrom. We have been here before you. We have come to know Ourselves, even as We grow and change. We can assist you, and you can be as We are. Take the first step. Grasp the hands of Those who would guide you, Those who would share this, and a million other familiar hardships.”
