*	Elyon  (TR Mark):    I greet you once again today.  This is your associate
and friend Elyon.  I applaud your efforts at your directed thoughts and your
prayerful patterns; I and the others are respectful of this time allotment
your sessions and realize that any time devoted in this directed thought or in
subsequent stillness is valuable to you, and therefore desire to remain silent
and observe this time with you whenever you are willing to take time to observe
Every time that you are in a prayerful state or in a receptive state, your
capacity to access this condition is enlarged.  Through repeated exposures to
this reality, you become well versed in this condition, very much like your
material and mechanical attempts to undergo training in mathematics and
vocabulary exercises.  As a small child you are unfamiliar with these
and it takes much repeated exposure to structures of numbers and words before
they become familiar to you, before your capacity to understand them has been
sufficiently strengthened and enlarged, and you are able to build on your
familiarity with these symbols in order to expand your understanding.  When you
are just beginning, you would not dream of learning your multiplication tables. 
But after you have experienced number symbols for a duration of time and been
disciplined and regular in your contact with them, you will take for granted the
earlier lessons which were so difficult to you when you first began.  When you
arrive at your multiplication tables you realize it is completely
unnecessary for
you to go back and refresh yourself on what two plus two meant.
The same is true with your stillness and prayer practice.  It builds upon
itself in the beginning.  It is awkward.  It is unfamiliar much as your numbers
are to a small child.  Through practice and repetition you develop a familiarity
with this state of reality.  It becomes easier and easier as your practice
continues to return to this state of reality, and once there, it becomes
more and
more familiar.  Thus, instead of returning each time to add one plus two, you
return each time to a more difficult problem until much experience grants
you the
ability to return to do complex mathematical equations at will.  
	The course of your human life has taught you that you begin unfamiliar with
all aspects of life.  It takes a child decades to become familiar enough to be
considered an adult, one who is well versed in life realities.  You are in a
similar situation spiritually.  You are entering realms in which you are
currently not altogether familiar although you are becoming more so each
day.  As
your educational experience proceeds, you are coming to realize that what was
unfamiliar to you at one point is now part of the foundation on which more
spiritual truths are built, and you are finding yourselves taking for granted
some of your earlier problems, your earlier equations.
	Much as it took many, many years of practice and diligence to learn how to
do an algebraic problem, it could take many, many years to become proficient at
the practice of entering the spiritual realm on command and with certainty.
should not be surprising to you although it is easy as an adult to forget the
long period it took for you to become familiar even with your own life
surroundings.  Grant yourself this time of learning and experience.  Realize
it is a process that only starts now.  You will not complete this process in
life.  You will not be here long enough, nearly, to do that.  So, grant that it
is an ongoing, continuing process which you are beginning now, indeed, have
in earnest for some time.  Realize that as with math or music or any other
physical principles, it must be a disciplined practice in order to become
proficient.  If you do not practice a musical instrument you will rise to a
of proficiency and remain there.  If you do not practice stillness, you will
remain at the level that your growth dictates.  Indeed, your growth dictates to
you the desire for more stillness.  You each feel it in your yearning for
spiritual truths, and you will accept this discipline and this principle much as
you accepted the fact that you had to go to school as a child.  
This is your next school, your adult school.  This one requires more
discipline because there is no bell to ring or bus to catch.  You must
voluntarily show up at this school.  You can arrange your time so as to best fit
into your daily schedule, but you must choose to do this yourself.  That is one
of the aspects which makes this school so special.  It is all volunteer.  It is
by your choice that you attend this school as you are even now.  That is why we
as teachers and facilitators of this school are so impressed with your
attendance.  We realize it is strictly volunteer, that you must take time out of
your busy schedule and busy lives to attend these classes, and we are so greatly
impressed by all steps taken toward this end.
You ask for greater realization of your roles in this joint project of the
Teaching Mission, and we have been forthcoming with much information as to our
roles together and your roles as differentiated from ours.  We will continue to
be forthcoming with all the information allowed under our mandate, and we
have no
doubts but that you will receive this information and accept these challenges
just as we have.  We only send by way of gentle prodding the recommendation
if practice sessions were allocated during the week, then the times when we get
together to play together may be more fruitful.  Do not take my statements
as any
form of reprimand, for they are not so.  They are offered as words of
encouragement not as pointing out any shortcomings.  Indeed, the realities I
speak of are imminent.  It is only a matter of time, my friends.  
	I must once again share with you the great love I have for each of you and
for our beloved group.  It gives my life purpose.  I echo your thoughts and
sentiments of appreciation and send my love.  I would withdraw at this time to
allow for others.
*	Malvantra  (Rick):  I am Malvantra.  I also approach you this day with
love, the love shared by Elyon, as we each hold you as dearly as he does.
	I have a lesson that entails twisting the word "submission".  You know that
the Father has a mission, and that is for His children to become perfect as He
is, and that the Son undertakes the mission of bestowal, of personally
experiencing the life of the Father's children, and the Spirit has
undertaken the
mission of ministering to the needs of these children that they may accomplish
the goal of perfection.  You are, in a sense, sub-contractors.  You are
	This mission of yours is threefold: The ever-continuing, personal progress
of your spiritual growth is the Father aspect of your mission.  During this
process, you are experiencing a broader and deeper dimension of life.  You are
undergoing the same processes that Michael undertook in his bestowal, and
this is
the meaning of, "Follow me".  You are revealing yourself to the Father in your
perfection attained, and you are revealing the Father to yourself as you come to
deeper communion with Him through His divine presence.  You are literally
enacting in a stepwise fashion the perfection attainment He has asked of you. 
Also, because of your love for your fellows, your compassion, your concern for
their growth, you are participants in the spirit's ministry program, and we of
the Teaching Mission are a subset of that very program.  To submit yourself to
the will of the Father is to undertake the sub-contract, not only to grow,
but to
reach out and to aid in the growth of others.  
	Once again, another of Michael's phrases, "Do unto others as you would have
them do unto you", holds true.  I would like you to reflect upon this, for
submission is often viewed in the sense of being a delegation of your power and
authority over to another.  It can truly be said, when given to the Father, you
have received in exchange all power and all authority.  But today I simply seek
to shift the perspective of cooperative outreach, of cooperative undertaking,
both for yourself and for your fellows.  That is all.
*	Elena  (Mary):  The power of God pours down upon you.  Stretch out your
hands and receive from Him His strength, His power, His goodness.   Willingly
open yourself to Him.  He is there always, waiting to give Himself to you.  His
love and His power are so great, so wonderful, so transforming.  As you receive
the revelation of His power, His Love, His beauty, His truth, His goodness, your
eyes will be opened wide like a child upon discovery.  You'll continually have
this experience of discovery of the depth of Him.  Avail yourself of the
opportunities you have to experience Him now, as you are.  You will be
You will be fulfilled.  You will be overjoyed.  Once again I say, stretch out
your hands and receive all good things from Him. [Mary: I believe this is Elena
	Rick: I was reflecting on love compared to wisdom, how love is
all-embracing where wisdom seems event-specific, discriminatory in a good sense,
knowing the difference between events and superstition, knowledge and
understanding. Love washes over all of that, beyond or through all those
evaluative levels.  Your message hit home how powerful that love really is. 
*	Elena:  Thank you for your comments.  I tried to convey the feeling of the
future of experiences you will discover as you go further along the ascension
path and the depth of beauty, truth and goodness that God has in store for
you to
discover.  You will have an eternity of these feelings of the light coming on in
your mind and in your heart, of discovering further realities.  It is exciting
the life that God has set up for all of us.  It's exciting in this sense of
discovery, and it also encompasses the fulfillment of achievement of
striving and
achieving goals and levels.  It is a well balanced experience, this time and
space reality that we find ourselves existing in, and I offer encouragement,
enticement, to lure you further into your own personal discoveries.  
	Rick:  You mention achievement and future discoveries.  We can return to
what appears to be a recurring experience and relish it as if it were ever new
because of that.  Like worship or expressing love.  It might be considered the
same experience, but it isn't.  The Father is the same, but the passing of time
means our experiences have advanced and our potentials have increased.  Whenever
we pause to worship or pour forth love, it is new.
*	Elena:  Isn't it beautiful?  
I would say thank you for your attention and also thank you for sharing your
lives and offering yourselves up to all of us.
