* Elyon (Mark TR): Greetings, this is one among you in
service, your friend Elyon. I would greet you today and would
discourse on an underlying thread in your previous sharing, and
that is the continuum of opportunity. Many of you here today
expressed knowledge, even appreciation, of the value of
opportunities laid before you. Opportunities are as gifts from
the Father, potentials to be unfolded at your desire.
I would point out to you that your recognition of these
opportunities and their potentials constitutes an elevated
spiritual awareness on your part. It is indeed only those with
enhanced perspectives who grasp the significance of opportunities
continually presented to you. To be aware that these oppor-
tunities are there and may be exercised through your will dem-
onstrates the elevated spiritual perception; in fact,
opportunities are unceasingly presented to all of your brothers
and sisters as well as yourselves. It is merely the awareness of
the potentials inherent in these opportunities that dictates the
effectiveness of the learning potentials in these experiences.
You here today are determined to view these experiences as a
positive occurrence, as a glass half full. Many around you may
be presented with similar experiences and would view these from
the opposite perspective. It is your effort to glean from these
life experiences the positive, the good, the progressive, that
will provide you with an ever progressive path towards higher
Everyone in their ascension career opts not to exercise
every last option available to them, but your attempts to unfold
the potentials within these experiences provides you with much
needed growth. These opportunities are as the unbroken geodes,
rock formations, in your life. They may be opened to expose
beautiful options inside, or they may be concealed as unexposed
in your lives. The choice is yours. Everytime you indulge
yourself in exploring these options you discover you are richly
rewarded for having so ventured forward. You also discover that
you are more keenly aware the next time an opportunity presents
itself. You are also more divinely attuned to the unfolding of
these opportunities before you in the most beneficial manner.
This sense of surety is what you gain when you extend yourself to
open these opportunities laid at your feet. In return to the
Father for these many opportunities, it is incumbent upon you to
transform each opportunity into the highest spiritual ideal you
are capable of. This is all that can be asked of any individual,
to seek to unfold in each potential the greatest benefit, the
greatest exposure of truth, beauty, and goodness.
This concludes my remarks for today. I will open the floor
for others and will remain if I am desired for questions.
* Lantarnek (Jonathan): I am Lantarnek, and I wish to provide
a picture that is complementary to Elyon's lesson today, and that
is about your toy, the Etch-a-Sketch, only I wish to stretch the
image a little bit.
This Etch-a-Sketch is three dimensional; it has three knobs.
You can label these knobs truth, beauty, and goodness. It has
two points that touch this three dimensional screen. One point
is your willpower, the will of you, the individual. The other
point is the presence of God. Your toy, as you know, can be
shaken and the screen rendered uniform. As you work the knobs of
truth, beauty, and goodness and move in concert with the Father
Within, you create the expression that is your unique soul.
Every event in your life is an opportunity; every move you make
creates a more replete portraiture of you and reveals a legacy of
experience. It is the Father's will to be in touch with you at
the screen of life. Every move you make is one more opportunity
for Him to realize the variety resident within that potential
screen of reality.
I am finished with my image. Thank you.
Jill: That was wonderful. At times I get caught up in a
situation and after 10 minutes of struggle I realize that I
forgot to call on God and Spirit to work through me. With the
image of the Etch-a-Sketch, there is a tangible, material way to
remind myself to spin the knobs and say, "Create the picture that
needs to be here." It's helpful. Thank you.
* Lantarnek: You are welcome. You know well, too, that when
the image appears to be random and distorted, a simple shake can
clear the screen, and you can become renewed to begin again to
attain your goal. This is the stillness.
* Stephen (Mark): This is Stephen, and I would be so bold as
to offer another picture for you today.
Picture, if you will, your prized natural resources of gold
and diamonds. When first unearthed these substances, while
containing inherent value, are yet to be turned into an item of
extreme beauty, as gold may appear as flecks or nuggets.
Diamonds may appear to be hidden in stone. These natural
resources may be likened to your opportunities. At your feet
they may appear to be rough, to be only a potential. Now picture
if you will the work of fine craftsmen who shape, cut, forge, and
turn these crude raw materials into what are esteemed items of
rare beauty. The action of the craftsmen turning these
potentials into actuals is what you all do in your lives with the
opportunities laid at your feet. To take the rough diamond and
the crude gold and to turn them into a beautiful work of art is
your charge, is your privilege. You are the artists who turn the
rough and crude into the truthful, the beautiful, and the good.
Realize that these potentials are put into your charge for you to
actualize just as the craftsman takes the crude materials and
would make a beautiful piece to be beheld by all.
I offer this image to you today. Thank you.
* Malvantra (Daniel): I am Malvantra, and I would offer you
yet another picture.
Think of your mission as a television. Everyone has this
television, and it is, indeed, plugged in. When you turn it on
there is snow, and you change the channels, and you find one
which you can recognize the show. You hook up a small antenna to
it, and you have the ability to view a few more channels than you
did before. You decide to hook up the cable, and you are given
many channels which you can view and learn from. Yet again you
hook up to satellite directly, and you have unlimited channels at
your disposal. You, by recognizing that you are indeed on a path
of service, have chosen to hook up directly to the satellite.
You have many opportunities at your disposal. You can choose
from a vast variety. At times you choose to watch only one
channel. At other times you choose to watch another. Know that
they are all available to you. Do not forget to turn on your TV.
Thank you. That is all from me.
Jonathan: As bad a rap as television gets, you have
transformed it from television into transcendent vision.
* Malvantra: As bad a rap as TV gets, it was a stretch to
choose that visual.
* unidentified (Mary): In our hearts resides the ever-
renewing spring of God's love, ever flowing, ever rejuvenating
and refreshing, not only to oneself, but to others as well.
Drink with pleasure the cool waters therefrom. Dip from these
waters and hand refreshment to others. As has been spoken, you
will discover that this spring will always be renewed no matter
how much water is taken. Not only is the water constantly
renewed, but the more it is enjoyed and appreciated, used and
partaken of, the clearer and deeper this reservoir will run. Go
to this place in your stillness time, this reservoir of love that
resides within your heart. Freely refresh yourself. Take
pleasure in God's love for you. God also finds pleasure in the
interchange. Drink deeply from the water of life, and you will
be rewarded with great joy. Love is this water of life to be
found in great abundance within each of you.
If you find that you are having trouble finding this
wellspring of love and life within you, go to God and ask Him
directly to help you. Ask Him directly to crack your heart open
a little bit to reveal Himself and His love. It has been said,
"Seek and you will find." So if these words fall upon your ears
and you know not where the spring is, or you have been there
before and now experience difficulty in reaching its refreshing
waters, my instructions to you are to seek, and you will find
that God and His many helpers will guide you. Remember that
seeking is a rewarding experience. Fret not that you are having
to seek. Enjoy the journey. Relish the struggle and have faith
in God's word that you will find what you seek.
At this time I would close our session by asking each of you
to participate in the conscious opening and offering of your
love. Consciously open your heart and offer your love to God.
Receive with joy now the warmth of renewal that the Father and
Mother Spirit bring to your heart. Shalom.
