*	Elyon (Jonathan TR):  Greetings to you, friends, this is your friend and
associate Elyon.  I mingle with you today enjoying your company, witnessing the
radiance of your souls, and experiencing my own joy in the enthusiasm that you
express and the sincerity of your cares, as well as I take delight in observing
how you discover and discern solutions for your conflicts, how you create new
pathways for your progress.
	The purpose in the Correcting Time is to reposition this planet that it may
benefit from ordinary operations.  You each have been enlisted in this
in this program because humankind is a significant factor in what takes place on
this world regarding the plans for Light and Life.  The midwayers are always
poised and ready to perform functions that have been granted to them by other
celestial administrators.  Many volunteers do attend the activities on this
world, many being trained specifically for those undertakings, others acquiring
the experience in process.  The humans of Urantia, however, lack this training,
lack the exposure, and this is where you come into play for us.  We have said
that your work for the betterment of this world is effective even if your
ministry is to one single individual.  The transformation is in the hands of
millions of beings.  You participate in this grand process, and what is expected
of you is simple one-on-one ministry.
	Those who develop the conscious awareness of their function with this
correcting mission will have that arena enlarged to effect many people in any
given activity.  It might be said that soon will be the season opener.  You have
each read the rules of the game.  You have each been to batting practice.  You
have become familiar with the field.  You have helped us lay down the lines that
define in-play and out-of-play.  We have dusted off the bags.  We have groomed
the dirt and mowed the lawn.  We have picked up the litter.  You have
in a sense, taken on small activities wherein you have practiced the plays
of the
game.  Now does arrive the opening season.  Those who begin the play we are
assured will not go on strike, for our selection process drafts those who are
fully willing.
	The transformation of the world appears to be an ominous project; it is
equally as ominous as the prospect of batting a 1000 throughout the entire
season, an event rare in occurrence.  So, I assure you that in any given
game you
will hit a foul ball; you may strike out; you may be tagged out, but we are
certain of your dedication and your willingness to return inning after inning to
strive again for the goals set before you.
	In your small ministries you do often hit homeruns, and we wish that you
could but hear the celestial grandstands cheer.  It is a solemn awareness, this
consciousness of being part of the planetary project, of Light and Life.  It can
lead to the feelings of, "Who am I, Lord, to undertake such endeavors?".  And
this is why I draw the analogy of sport, for it is a grand game, one to be
rather than worked out.  You may liken it to the play of a child who "plays
house", who plays fireman, who plays doctor.  These are lighthearted, though
are serious to the child.  The more mature mind can perceive the simplicity, the
lack of burden.  Yet this playfulness is the training for the career of the
where the burdens do become real and the tasks do become difficult.  So, do let
your teachers bear the burden, and you be lighthearted and playful in rehearsing
and practicing and eventually actually undertaking programs which do
significantly contribute to the betterment of Urantia.
	I repeat, that we are assured that every one of you will progress as a
spiritual individual for your Divine Parent.  This is a foregone conclusion
as we
witness the divine ministries bestowed upon you.  Our purpose is to draw you
the upliftment of Urantia as an assistant and as a co-worker.  You will each
derive the added benefit of expediting your personal growth, for you do know
lessons well learned are lessons that you teach.
	I will pause and allow another associate to speak with you at this time.
*	Jessona:  This is Jessona, and I know that I have been requested today and
would like you to present your question.
	Tom:  I had a discussion with a young lady interested in healing.  I got
the feeling that you would like to be associated with her.  If you would like me
to introduce the two of you, please confirm these feelings.
*	Jessona:  We are currently enlarging the corps of reservists dedicated to
health and healing and would welcome her involvement.  We perceive the
is already a real aspect of her soul.  Everyone who enlists in any one of these
corps undergoes much training, and we welcome her into this fold.  You are
encouraged by me to engage her in the understanding of our structure, the
mechanisms through which we work, so that she can deepen her understanding and
appreciation of the group factor of healing, all the guides, all the ministers
who help the servant who seeks to bring upliftment on a physical and a mental
level to a fellow.
	I encourage you all to review the words of Abraham, for they have great
value in the group.  They will increase your effect as healers by practicing
one another.  In the assembly of numerous personalities more power is present. 
Perhaps you can guide others here in this study of these points and tips of
Abraham.  [These were read to the group before the session and are appended to
the end of  this transcript.  ed.]
*	Machiventa (Mark):   I would greet you as well.  This is Machiventa.  Once
again it is my pleasure to return to the classroom with you.
	I would use the imagery of my dear associate Elyon and recall the image of
the baseball game.  I would add to your perception of this image the realization
that in a giant stadium filled to capacity there are many, many individuals
responsible for the promotion and continuation of this endeavor, of the game
itself.  There is no single individual who has entire responsibility for the
different details involved in the assembly of a game of this magnitude.  Rather,
it takes a cooperative effort involving many different levels of commitment,
that of owners and coaches of the teams, to individual players who have given
their commitment, to the practice and undertaking of the actual game itself, to
the commitment of the many fans who would come to witness the entire affair and
who would leave the stadium having gained from the commitment of all the others
before them who have made the entire arrangement possible.  It is indeed a
cooperative effort much the same as we undertake together.  There are no key
individuals without whom this process would not occur, yet commitment is
from many key individuals to function and be effective in this game we have
before us.
	Therefore, I would encourage each of you to see yourselves as embracing
your role, your individual part in the overall scheme of the game, and lift off
your shoulders any thoughts of burdens you have placed on yourselves of overmuch
responsibility.  All on the teams share in the responsibility and share in the
overall outcome just as every individual in this room must do.  One individual
baseball player would not draw an entire stadium of observers, but two teams of
many individuals committed and united activity has this effect.  Likewise,
realize that we are the promoters, we are the managers, we are behind the scenes
in promotion of this undertaking, and you play the roles of the individual
players of which many are needed to comprise a successful team.
	So, I would encourage you to simply focus on your individual commitment to
the team and making sure it is strong and making sure that you remain
prepared in
your training to successfully perform your function as a member of the team. 
That is all that is required of you, and the outcome of the game is a foregone
	Does this enhance your image?
	Jonathan:  Yes, it does.
*	Machiventa:  I wish to congratulate and thank each member of the team.  You
are all valued players and all necessary to the overall effort of which I am a
part and you are a part. 
	Jonathan:  The idea of teamwork is helpful.  We express our desire to be of
service and our individual aspirations, but alone we feel nearly powerless to
accomplish those things.  Reminding of us of group support helps us to maintain
our zeal to continue.
*	Machiventa:  That would be the idea.  I would encourage you to also gain
strength from the knowledge that you have the support of not only those behind
the scenes but of your teammates who surround you.  Should you stumble, your
teammates would most adequately assist you. Should you succeed, you may have the
privilege of sharing your success with your teammates, as well.  In this way
experience is enhanced many fold when seen through the eyes of an entire
team, as
well as your own.
	Evelyn:  Elyon mentioned earlier "millions" of people.  I assume these are
the team, thus, if each of us works on one person that is a very effective
Are these millions reservists?
*	Machiventa:  These millions might more aptly be categorized as activists,
activated by the reservists.  There are fewer of the reserve corps who are at a
sufficient stage of evolution to be in realization of their affinity in the
cosmic reality with this overall plan.  They are able to infuse and subsequently
activate a larger number of individuals who will faithfully execute the
inspiration of many more around them without necessarily being in full
realization of their affinity with the cosmic directives.  They are nonetheless
very necessary and advanced in their purpose, however, not affiliated with the
group of reservists directly.  That is one distinction you in this room
should be
aware of in your efforts to be about this business of the Correcting Time
and the
Teaching Mission.  One aspect that separates you from others around you who are
equally inspired in their purpose to be of service is the link which you
with the other side, the spiritual helpers, and your realization of this
link and
of your role to be played as a result of this.  Many desire to be of service and
are simply seeking direction to work out this inner longing.  Far fewer are in
actual realization of the progressive steps involved in this evolutionary
and, as reservists, you enjoy the benefits of a deeper understanding and a
realization of the overall plan and your position in it.
	Therefore, it is incumbent upon you to accept the responsibility that comes
with this position and to use this realization to its greatest benefit and
effect.  You are all attempting this very process by your presence here in the
Melchizedek classrooms and are doing quite well at laying your own foundations
for future service opportunities.
	You are well aware of the phrase of, "To whom much is given, much is
expected."  Each one of you is living up to the expectations of you, and we are
only looking to the future with great joy at the potentials to be unfolded by
	I would take my leave now unless there are any other questions.

Excerpt from Abraham shared at our group meeting:

APRIL 14, 1997

I am requesting of you this evening to begin a prayerful service for your
fellows. This act of service will begin small within this group and go forth
from there. I will perform these acts of prayerful healing myself until your
level of comfort is adequate where you can take over. I would ask for your
prayers for one another be verbal, in that it creates a greater reality for
you, one or two to spend time in prayer with a recipient who may be suffering
from the emotional disorders I previously mentioned.

To engage in verbal prayer with your friend creates a sharing connection, with
not only between you and Father, but also the Supreme Being. Prayers are
healing. Prayers bring comfort to those clouded by despair, anger, and other
various spirit poisons. To engage in prayer with your fellows is to create
mindal healing, therefore physical healing is affected. I would ask of you
this new service to create a more brotherly connection between you in the
group. In time we will go beyond that. This world in its mental anguish can
receive comfort and healing through the care of another who would spend time
in prayer for them. There are great benefits to behold from these prayerful
healings. There is peace, confidence, security and knowing that comes from
these prayerful healings. Do you see how our lessons have led us to this
point? I would give you a few guidelines to this, but your inner feelings are
always trustworthy to follow when praying.

1) It is helpful in the transfer of energy to be closely seated by the healing
2) It is always wonderful to begin with a pledge to the doing of Father's will
and acknowledgment of His all-knowingness.
3) There would be great benefits to acknowledge yourself as Father's child,
loved completely as you are.
4) It is wise to have healing recipient state their desire. This allows them
to participate in their own healing, whether this is verbal, it matters not.
5) To pledge faith and belief that the prayer was indeed heard, and the answer
is forthcoming, peace is on the way.
