*       Elyon  (Mark TR):  This is Elyon, one among you today in
equal standing before the Father.  I would drink of this cup
offered; I would pass this cup on and add a small contribution to
its thoughts.  
        Father, smile upon us today as we join in fellowship, as we
seek further and deeper to discern You in our lives, Your
character, Your presence, Your attributes.  May this encounter
here today in searching for you collectively provide each one of
us with an enhanced capacity to appreciate these attributes and,
having discovered new meanings in Your presence, provide us with
the unerring direction to follow Your guidance, as this is the
sincere desire of our hearts, collectively.  Thank you now and
always, Father.  
        I join in this prayer with you today to reinforce the
significance and the value of such honest, sincere sharing of the
soul with the Father.  As you have been told, the actual word
phrases used are rather insignificant in this regard.  What is
significant is the intent, the desire, the expression that
emanates from your soul directly to the Father.  It is this
expression that provides the Father with your experience, with
your encounter with the created world.  It is at such a time also
appropriate to cease your petition and to remain in contact with
the Father, allowing no thought/words to clutter the airwaves so
that you can then receive these impressions issued from the
Father as a response to your petition.  If your are sincere in
your petition and can cease your dialogue and listen for His re-
sponse, it will be forthcoming.  
        This is, of course, the stillness, although prayer is
distinctly separate from the stillness.  Prayer can be thought of
as aligning the attitude for the reception of the response from
the Father, but the response of the Father invariably occurs in
the space of the stillness.  You will receive this direction,
this response, whether or not you are cognizant of this fact. 
There are many levels on which you can discern this feedback from
the Father, not all of which are conscious on your part. 
Nevertheless, the practice is well worth the effort, the energy,
that it takes to attempt to align yourself thus.  When you are in
the presence of the knowledge that you have received this
direction, this guidance, it is then your choosing to act that
brings full circle to the cycle.  
        You must continually make choices in this life, and you must
choose based upon the highest ideal you are aware of.  If you
continually seek guidance from the Father your ideals will be
elevated, your principles will be raised, your expectations will
be enhanced.  But choosing to act upon your highest thought of
how to conduct yourselves in a given situation is the gift you
give to the Father.  Your making your every choice based on the
highest ideal you are familiar with is the truest gift you can
return to the Father; to act in wisdom, to act in peace, with
        You are indeed very active, constantly making choices,
constantly reevaluating your positions, reexamining your stances. 
This provides you the opportunity for continual reexamination of
your principles and provides you with continual opportunity of
either recommitting yourself to a previous choice or altering a
choice to be more perfect.  But it is the choosing that keeps you
active.  To not choose to choose causes stagnation.  
        So look about you and seek out choices, seek out opportunit-
ies, each one there for you to express and unfold and manifest as
yet another expression of the Father's characteristics indwelling
your very life.  
        This concludes my remarks for today, however I remain yours
in service if necessary.  
        Mary:  You can look at choosing from several different per-
spectives.  Choosing affects longterm goals and future plans. 
There are also choices that are made in the moment.  I need to
make a greater effort to be aware of the choices I am making in
the moment, like the choice of language I use, the tone of voice,
attitudes I choose to have.  I'm not always alert to the fact
that I am making choices in these basic modes of going about my
business.  When we talk about the spiritual significance of
choice, I tend to distract myself with thinking about longterm
choices.  I think I need to recognize the significance of choices
I make daily like attitude, language, approach.
*       Elyon:  Indeed, it would be well seen if all of you were to
realize that your lives are one continual series of choices. 
Every aspect of your material existence is a choice you have
made. From when you rise to what you ingest, to what you wear, to
who you see, how you speak, what you devote your time to; all of
these are choices which can have a spiritual impact as well if
applied appropriately.  
        The fact that you all make all these choices routinely can
become habitual, can go unrecognized as the potentials that they
are.  But I would point out to you that, from when you first open
your eyes to when you shut them at night, you are in a continual
process of choosing.  I would then suggest that if you are in
this process continually it might be helpful to access the
choices being made and attempt to spiritualize these choices
whenever the option presents itself, whenever the possibility
exists to change the dynamics of the choice to include certain
spiritual gains or benefits.  Again I would say that each time
you seek the Father, you may not be aware, but your highest goals
and values will be enhanced by contact with the Father.  When you
return to these high spiritual ideals to make your next decision
or choice you will find that you will be operating on a slightly
higher premise each time, almost unnoticeable at times and at
other times obvious in your spiritual growth.
*       Lantarnek  (Jonathan):  This is Lantarnek.  I also greet you
today.  I have the assurance that we are being successful in our
work together as a team for the records indicate recognition of
progress on all your parts.  The efforts are made at discernment
and applications of lessons.  In regard to our topic of 'choice'
today, I would add some more thoughts. 
        You have a game where you place cards face down and flip two
up at a time in an effort to match the face of each.  Choice,
when coupled with direction, amplifies its value in your life,
for you know the skill required in playing this game is one where
you recall from your past an association that applies to your
future intent.  Random flipping of cards will not win the game. 
When you begin to perceive choice as a matrix you will encounter
less difficulty, less dilemma in arriving at a conclusive avenue
in which to apply yourself.  
        Two of your religious phrases: "Seek the Father's will" and
"Strive to be like Him" appear vague because of the reality of
individual choice.  When the Father initiated the creation of the
universe He established principles through which all things
operate in harmony to fulfill His purpose.  You can count on,
with assurance, continuation of the universe scheme because it is
designed and conforms to these principles.  When you encounter
the crossroads of choice, assurance can be had in your moments of
doubt by faith-grasping the longlasting qualities of the
principles the Father has established by which reality configures
itself.  You do not choose to wear a coat on a hot day for given
reasons.  In matters of spiritual import, of crucial impact upon
your personal destiny, there are given parameters by which you
can discern and thereby choose.  
        But I must remind you that coupled with choice is
creativity.  This is a reflection of the Father Himself in your
own personal life.  He chose and creation is.  You choose and
create.  Creativity is choice with direction; it is choice where
the personality applies itself with a purpose that does not
merely react to environment but intently pursues the outworking
of a cause that may augment, rather than respond to, the
environment.  To become more like the Father is to become cre-
ative in your decision making processes, to project situations in
your life that are based on realistic parameters and deep per-
sonal goals.  Every choice is like hand-over-hand in a rope climb
to Paradise. In order to become skilled at the tantamount deci-
sions of eternal import, make every little decision of seemingly
trivial matters with the application of the ideas I have pre-
sented, that both given parameters and personal projections
combined, made in good choosing, you will be prepared for those
momentous decisions for the soul.                                   I am finished with my
        Mark:  Thank, you so much.  Those were great. 
*       Lantarnek:  You are welcome, my friend.
        Bill Brock:  I am in a situation where I have choices I need
to make where I have no idea what the answer is because there are
very divergent pulls.  I'd like some comment on how to live in
the uncertainty without getting fearful or hasty.  
*       Lantarnek:  The complexity of your situation reveals a
threefold nature that is evident in so many factors of life, in
this case it is involved with your desires and potential choices,
the desires and choices of others, and the will of the Father. 
        You are capable of the Father's embrace and receive the
assurances of His will.  You discern the desires of others.  When
you encounter situations as the one you are in, human beings dis-
cover the limitations of their realm of choice power.  With
sensitivity and your discernment of others and their wills, you
have all reason to value your will with equal import.  
        Sometimes it is required for one to choose and resolve
firmly to hold to the decision and patiently await the point of
arrival of decision making that others must attain, knowing full
well the Father is willing to wait upon His children.  This
resoluteness is valuable, but you also have the ability to
refrain from choice.  By this I mean weakness is not a factor in
the suspension of drawing conclusion if all situations and
evidence are not present.  Where I indicate you might be forceful
to decide on your own and proceed with some independence of the
volition of others, you can equally be as powerful in withholding
choice during the interim in which others must undergo the
process of choosing such that you might better integrate with
them in the matter at hand.  
        You know the phrase that conditions the value of any expe-
rience, that is, "Does it draw you closer to the Father?"  I also
provide a corollary, "Does your decision allow others to draw
closer to the Father?"  This can help clarify whether you need to
patiently wait before deciding or to decide and proceed.  
        This perhaps does not give you a specific thing to do, but I
hope it provides you with leverage whereby you may make our
decisions.  Has this helped?
        Bill:  It does, thank you.  
        Jonathan:  I don't know if Malvantra is present today, but I
have a question for him based on last week's lesson.  He
mentioned being involved with other Armageddons, crises.  What
can you tell us about your service in these emergency situations?
*       Malvantra  (Jonathan):  I have served in some capacity on
each planet in the Satania rebellion and have witnessed the
results of the teachings of rebellion on these worlds, each of
which has had a varying degree of beneficial and disastrous
effects.  I, being a melchizedek of local universe status, am
also experienced with other insurrections.  During one is where I
met your teacher Elyon.
        Crises, as I encounter them, are much different than how you
would define a crisis.  As you know, when a child falls from a
bicycle, a parent is often more concerned with the inner state of
the child through the calamity than with scratched paint or even
scratched elbows.  Your 'end times' scenarios are composed
largely of scratched paint and elbows.  We encounter crisis when
it effects the wellbeing of a world's inhabitants.  I am
therefore not able to convey what is our task at these times any
more than to illustrate that we behave as would a child's parent
during the crisis.  We seek to make personal contact and provide
assurance of overcare and of future certainty.  
        Thank you for your request.
