I will learn to accept the responsibility of carrying Knowledge in the world.

CARRYING KNOWLEDGE IN THE WORLD requires responsibility. Your responsibility is to follow Knowledge and to learn to express Knowledge adequately and purposefully. In this, your human abilities will need to be cultivated and elevated. Discernment and all the other qualities of value within yourself will need to be cultivated as well, for you must learn to express that which you carry. You must learn to follow it and become a worthy vehicle for it. This is the true meaning of all individual development. This is where individual development has genuine purpose. This is where your growth and advancement have direction as well.

Over time, you will become a very, very finely-tuned vehicle for Knowledge in the world.
