Sarah: I'm not getting a name of who this is.
* unidentified (Sarah TR): Let us speak today of the ladder
that we all are climbing. On top of this ladder is God, below Him is
Jesus, below them the Spirit of Truth, the Mother Spirit, and way
down at the bottom are God's children. As mortals we need to worship
God, try to make Him happy all the time, and sometimes we don't know
why you are even bothering to create such a ridiculous scene. In
your mind you know better. Not one spirit or mortal is better than
another. We have God, Jesus, spirits. We are all involved in this
same parallel design. You are part of God, and God is part of you,
the same as Jesus. As far as worship, let us all go into creation
As God creates, it is only a beginning. Each spirit must do
his own unfolding, his own creation. As the spiritual family on
Urantia, you hold together in unison to create a god. This filters
down until we see the newborn baby who has to begin a creation of
himself to the world and on into the heavens. The amount of creation
you establish before leaving Urantia is the same amount you bring
into the circle of God. There are no particular ways of living or
chores to manage or any particular acts. As creation unfolds it is a
matter of being able to create unto yourself. This is not easy; this
takes a lot of faith in yourself that you are on the same plane of
ascension as God Himself. We need to have you not looking at God and
Jesus and the higher powers on a pedestal, or you will never
understand them. Let them fall off the pedestal and join you in the
daily life, in your lessons of life. Relax to know that all are in
Sarah: That is all I am seeing here.
* Elyon (Mark): This is Elyon, and I would once again come
among you with joy as we strive together to be of service to each
other and to Michael. It is witnessed with joy your sharing of
significant aspects, lessons in your lives, experiences you each
have. These are how we can put back into play some previous truth
balls as well as bring out of the footlocker new ones from time to
time to play with. Indeed, it is true that there are many
individuals on my side who desire to be useful and in service to you
in some way, many teachers willing to discourse or be called into
play. It is your familiarity with myself and with other leading
personalities that confines your contact to these select individuals.
It is in no way your shortcoming or fault that you are unaware of who
to ask for, as until you have been exposed to a different personality
you could not be expected to be familiar. It might be helpful to you
on occasion to attempt to widen your sphere of influence to a greater
teacher base available to you. I realize that this may challenge
some of your comfort zones, as the unknown can be initially
uncomfortable. But I encourage you to expand your horizons, to be
open in your lives to teachers other than myself or the rather select
group you have become familiar with. You should not have fear
attached to this circumstance. I would suggest you pause to reflect
on the comfort you experience in our contact together and realize
that contact from another may be equally as comfortable to you in the
end and, indeed, may prove enriching for your growth experience, as
many times new insights are derived from fresh perspectives. For
every question one seeks to answer, there are many answers to be
given, all of which may help to fill the entire answer.
We have developed the relationship we enjoy together over a
lengthy period of time, each of us investing ourselves as time goes
by to build the relationship we now enjoy. This is true of teachers
and students, of students with other students, of teachers with other
teachers. It takes some effort on your part to build and maintain a
relationship with any other individual in all the cosmos. So
therefore, by word of encouragement, not only go out and meet and
foster relationships with your brothers in the flesh, but also look
forward to the opportunity between yourself and the as yet unmet
personalities available to you through the grace of our sovereign
I would pause for you to examine in your own lives the many
benefits you have derived from your contacts with others and how
there may have been times of discomfort involved in any relationship,
but a relationship fostered in love and tended to with great care can
be a wellspring of enjoyment for your experience and for your growth.
It truly would be a sad and isolated existence to not have the
richness of this contact between yourselves. You should realize that
as rich and fulfilling as these relationships have been, there are an
unlimited number of opportunities for you to cultivate relationships
equally as enjoyable and beneficial as the ones you now enjoy.
Would anyone care to interject a thought, observation, or truth
ball into play at this time?
* Evelyn: This is off the topic. I understand from the book
that both God and Michael are our creators. I'm stumbling over
conveying that briefly to another. I understand Michael as a brother
but not as our father, seeing as how our personality comes from God.
* Elyon: Michael is your father in the respect that from him you
originated. While it is true that personality is a divine gift from
the Father, you still need to be created to enjoy and access this
gift of God, this personality. Michael was created to be a creator,
and in some limited sense you were created by Michael to be a
creator. This same relationship holds true in that you, as you may
create another living creature, do not bestow on them personality.
This gift comes from the Father. And so on up through Michael; he is
able to create universes and vast numbers of individuals. But it is
still the personality fragment from God that is unique to each
Do you have any comment?
Evelyn: I think of what humans do as procreate, not create,
or is that the comparison, that procreation is comparable to his
creation? Are we supposed to see him as creating us each
individually rather than that he created mankind, or set the wheels
in motion for us all to procreate? Or should we see it as he created
us each one individually? I'm not sure my question is clear. Thank
you for your comments.
* Elyon: By referring to your ability to create more life on
this world, your ancestry must be traced back to a dawn of mankind,
which was the creation of Michael.
Mark: I'm sorry, I'm not able to pull this picture together.
Perhaps another TR would be more effective.
* Elyon (Jonathan): It would be more fitting to view Michael's
creator abilities as the primary creator of you than the Father, in
that the Father is a master creator, one who has revealed potential
that may be enacted in time and space by Creator Sons. You may
perhaps perceive it in this manner. Michael has created you as if
you were a vessel such as a glass. He has created this form. He has
likewise created the water that fills this glass. Not only in the
broad scope of creature orders, but in the specific sense of each
vessel, he has created these. It is complicated for the creature to
understand the creator process. Much of your creative experience is
replication, variation on creation. The Father's input is like a
drop of lemon juice in this water. This infusion of personality is
that additional uniqueness. But the Father did not choose to create
the Urantia form of Nebadon mortal; this was Michael's design. Your
specific creaturehood as one of these mortals is Michael's design.
I would like to continue this image of a glass of water, if you
are satisfied with your question.
* Elyon: Returning to our topic of relationship, I would inform
you that, as you reach the truth, this same idea of flavoring water
is likewise applicable. We have often spoken of higher truths, of
increasing degrees of truth recognition. We speak of truth often is
this relative sense. Yet it is known by you as well as by us that
truth has absolute qualities. Higher truth is often in reality a
degree of recognition of the same truth that was, until now,
imperceptible. When you reach for truth you receive this drop of
lemon juice in your receptive water, and it flavors you. In ministry
you can transfer a drop of yourself to another, and they receive the
same flavoring. In ministry you are met with frustration at times
for you have felt inadequate in your function as a truth revealer.
This inadequacy often arises from the recognition of what appears to
be dilution in your gift. But I assure you that the flavor is still
lemon, it has not changed. It has merely become compatible to
another's ability to taste. This essence only stimulates the thirst
of the seeker for stronger flavor. You have performed the service of
encouraging a greater thirst. You are fully aware that a spoonful of
concentrated lemon juice is strong. The Father does not infuse you
with such intensity, but allows you to become better able to receive
higher concentrations. Each level of concentration contains the
absolute qualities of truth.
Now may I introduce a sidelight of this image. Let us assume
you are a vessel filled with milk. Your life processes in
association with a Thought Adjuster unfold similar to the idea of a
warm glass of milk with a concentration of this same lemon juice.
All your valuable experiences curdle into a soul leaving behind the
whey of mortal existence. The whey is not unimportant it is a
valuable factor in bring about the soul. Without it the entire
process is impossible.
I hope I have provided you with some illumination and desire
Mark: Thank you so much. That's a great image of the glass.
Evelyn: Do we need to specifically request those other
personalities you mentioned earlier? Or can we just say, "You're
welcome, go ahead and surprise us."?
* Elyon: We are always willing to step up to the podium. You
have requested these instructors, some of whom have been present and
addressed you over the past few weeks. Given the time period, only a
few will speak, for we are more inclined to be intent upon the
content and reception of the lesson than for each of us to have a
moment at the microphone. But the processes of communication with
you are established, and we can receive requests from you for
instructors who are remotely located.
I now introduce you to one of your kind. He has spoken to you
in the past. He is a Mighty Messenger.
* Mighty Messenger: Greetings to you. I have come from a world
not unlike yours. I have ascended and accomplished a great feat in
the eyes of all us mortals, to attain the Father and to go beyond
into the embrace of Trinity.
I am greatly pleased to note your enthusiasm over your life
struggles, your willingness to do good when there appears to be much
in our world that is not only imperfect but inclined towards evil.
But I assure you as one standing among you today this is, in the
outcome, quite beneficial. Do you realize that all your work for the
good is of great service to the many who seek to restore order on a
world that has been left directionless for a long period of time?
The events of your physical life appear trivial in the long
ascent to Paradise. Such great accomplishments as comprehension of
the Father, such events as attaining residential status on
Salvington, seem to make your 24 hour day far too little. But you
have two great tasks to perform while yet embodied as you are, and
these are: One, to become wholly united with the Father's presence
that now dwells in you. This accomplishment opens the door for all
that follows. Second, you are to leave this world a better place
than you found it. This is a service you perform for those whom you
cannot see. It also incorporates service to those whom you can see.
There is a lot of lemon juice to go around, and if your world is
going to reach the ages of having it made in the shade, there is much
work to do.
I thank Elyon for the opportunity to speak with you today. As
one assigned to a world so similar to my origin, I am keenly
interested in the welfare of this world. I will now depart. Thank
* Malvantra (Mark): This is Malvantra. I will now muscle my way
in here for one brief moment today to recall to mind the images we
shared recently of each one of you now and here being in the
Melchizedek classrooms, that there is much instruction to be given to
the class and much tutoring to the individuals, and that we must
remember that the surf is up, and the opportunities for growth are
cresting with the waves.
I just intercede to freshen the image in your minds so that it
does not become too far diluted. I stated my position in relation to
these upcoming challenges, and I reconfirm my resolve to each one
here as well as to the overall lesson plan. That is all that I would
share with you today unless you ask for more.
It is important to focus on enthusiasm from time to time. As a surge
occurs it is a useful thing to take advantage of it and to ride it for all it's
worth. I would encourage each one here to be in full realization that the
potentials abound around us at this time. We may make more full use of them
are but focused on this agenda.
