I am ABRAHAM. Welcome my friends. How I look
forward each week to meeting with you all together.
How wonderful is it to see the seeds of your ideas
planted and your fellows tending to the growth
therefrom. Your dignified manner leads each one
to be open to the spreading of the idea seedlings.
Your care for one another as individuals and children
of the living God, see to positive growth.
You each have experience in group tearing down or
negative feedback. How wonderful that each one
here desires to give and see to one another's growth.
What an appropriate display of the Brotherhood.
With the business in today's mortal living, always
are we trained to protect ourselves--watch over
our shoulders-- for those who might be against us.
Ever are we ready to defend and keep vigil over
our place in the world. We have been witness to
such an example of this behavior through the
Master's apostles of old. Judas certainly was one
to believe the world did not welcome him. He was
always wont to believe his well-being was that of
his own responsibilities, and that some had the
power to make him stumble.
Thomas, was at times given in to emotionalism'
and could be rather introverted--feeling isolated--not
in desire to share his feelings for fear he would be
misunderstood. Peter, on the other hand, could
verbally charm and make his way through any given
situation that would threaten his sense of well-being,
and yes--this was an extension of the ego.
Many of the apostles were at times moody and difficult.
Always did the Master rally them together with the
common focus that they were each spiritual brothers
on a quest of the Kingdom. Ofttimes, He would remind
them that the Brotherhood was often a great help for emotionalism or
individual difficulties. He could be
found telling His apostles that one another's well-being
for this did indeed open the channel for the cycle of
spiritual energy to continually flow.
As I said before, Judas had chose to deny the full
Urantian experience--ever worried about his well-being,
always watching his own back, yes. There, was the block
in the flow of living spiritual energy. When Judas had
turned inward and was self-seeking, did he change his
capacity to receive any divine assistance.
Nathaniel on the other hand, was always first to aid
his brethren with a humorous line or an offering of
assistance. He could be found on the lighter side of
seemingly serious topics and ever drawing out his
fellow apostles to be open and share--yes. Nathaniel
was at times given in to depression and moodiness,
yes, but his practice of tending to his fellows' growth
was a wonderful antidote to those things which
brought him down. Nathaniel was more so focused
on the well-being of his fellows so much so, that he
allowed an opening for Father's divine energy to create
for him a balanced life. His fellows' downcast attitudes
were an invitation to him to find humor in the lighter
side of serious topics.
My friends, I would ask that you continue in your
warm and loving display here with one another--to
tend to each other's well-being. Look for opportunities
during the week to experiment with this technique.
Recognize the opening and closing of the channel for
the flow of divine energy. Be aware, your willingness
to give is measured side by side with the capacity to receive.
As always--my love is with you. I will be available during
the week to take your questions. Until next week, shalom.
