*	Evanson (Jonathan TR):  Greetings, this is Evanson.  I am elected as one to
begin this session.  I have for you a short discourse.
	The master has said, "Follow me", and you know that he goes before you into
all things, preparing the way.  Your sharing this morning serves to illustrate
how Michael precedes you in the tasks you have at hand in your ministry
No one is ever going to succeed Michael as Salvington ruler aside from perhaps
Gabriel, so we know that to follow Michael does not mean that we will at some
point run the affairs of Nebadon.  Know that this following of him is to go into
the events that have developed in your day that he has prepared to make your
task, though not easier, perhaps with your choosing successful.  He will
part the
seas of chaotic potentials and create the dry ground that you may walk through. 
The passage will be clear, though it will not necessarily be without fear.
As in
the story of your onetime Moses, it is a daunting task to be confronted by two
huge walls of water and to walk through them in faith.  Michael's ministry
are ever on alert to create these openings within obstacles that you may cross
these barriers and reach your goal.  We who have elected to be on his ministry
force are following Michael in making these potentials available.
	A study of his life reveals that he made choices, lifelong decisions, on
how he would pursue the Father's will and manifest this on Urantia.  His
following the will of the Father is a partnership.   He did not seek a roster of
rules that ought to be obeyed such that he would please the Father.  He knew
well that it is a partnership of experience.  When he perceived in his
environment obstacles, he chose the course of action to take that would amplify
the love and the mercy and the ministry of the Father.
	There were times when potentials were opened up before him that he chose
not to pursue.  He made this decision free of the burden of the guilt that he
ought to have selected otherwise.  This is because he maintained an ongoing
relationship with his Father.  He knew full well that his decision was in
accordance with the mandates of his mission.
	As we each follow Michael we can trust that his guidance is ordained by the
Paradise Father and that he will never fail to provide ample opportunity, even
opportunities, wherein you may also bring about the will of the Father in your
life and on this planet.  Each of us ascending creatures knows full well our
shortcomings and is in touch with our uncertainties of what the future will
and what we are capable of fulfilling.  Michael knows this likewise.  You can
trust that he will provide you with precisely the right configuration of
potentials that you can fulfill your task.  Know ever and always that Michael
goes before you in anything you choose to accomplish in the name of the
Father in
	Thank you for hearing me today.
*	Elyon (Mark):  Greetings, this is Elyon, pleased to be with the group again
this morning.
	Having been made aware that Michael does precede us, does indeed provide
for us the very stage whereupon is set the act of our service, how then does one
go about knowing the part to play?  If one has faith that there is indeed a
and that it is set, it is ripe for fruitful growth, then it is left to discern
our parts to play through our communion with Michael, our communion through
Michael to the Father, that we discern our role, our part to play as we walk
the stage.  In this arena there are no scripts passed around beforehand that may
be studied to prepare oneself for the event, but rather we must improvise as we
see best according to our understanding of what the stage and the setting are
representing.  This task of improvising, being on the spot as you step out
on the
stage, is made vastly easier for you through your attempt to discern the
to be expressed through practices such as stillness.  In stillness we may be
granted an overall view of the action to be played out before you and with you. 
Having been granted this overall perspective, it is far easier to come up with
the right line to facilitate the script that will play out among all the
individuals engaged.
	There may be many times when you find that the spotlight may be shined
directly upon you as if to cue you that it is your turn to be engaged.  You may
find yourself with a lump in your throat and an uncertainty as to how to proceed
with your part.  You may recognize that you have a part to play and that you are
engaged in the acting out of an overall plan, but the actual lines, the details,
are left to your creative imagination.  You stumble forward; you project as you
think most appropriate, and you receive confirmation that you spoke in turn, in
line, and adequately represented the vision you have of a part you are to play. 
The more time you allow yourself in preparation, in stillness, in communion, the
smoother your prompting becomes and the more accurate you become, as well.
	There are no incorrect responses to be made on this stage set before you,
rather, there are learning experiences provided when inappropriate responses are
communicated, helping you to more clearly define your character and your
relativity to the others on the stage.  This is a process that takes a great
amount of practice and trial and learning.  But with diligent effort you find
great rewards in the success you experience when you are right on the money with
your cue at the right moment.  Then when the great spotlight of life sweeps
around and fixes you, you are confident and are not distracted by the sensation
of all eyes being fixed upon you and your line having been forgotten.
	You touched on a key aspect of your performance in this arena when you 
mentioned leaving yourself aside so that the spirit of the Father may work
through you and relying on the force greater than yourself to accomplish the
at hand.  This is what a truly great participant on stage will master.  When it
is in your court to make response, to avail yourselves of the higher response
which is always at the ready, to not see this spotlight as illuminating your
person but rather your beautiful, bright, and shining Indwelling Spirit; this is
a truly great participant in this process.
	It is so pleasing to be among a group who so sincerely desires to
understand the mechanics of this process so as to provide the greatest success
and benefit while being engaged in the process.  Each of you here has many
successful episodes to recount in which great things were to have their
with your impetus, with your start.  It is now simply to perfect your skills
has become the emphasis of our classrooms, to perfect your skills so that when
you find yourselves being called to walk out onto the stage and deliver your
lines, you feel prepared for the task, not that you are prepared alone to
undertake the task, but that you are prepared to form a partnership to undertake
the task.  This is how the task gets done in its most divine form.  Each of you
has had experience in working hand-in-hand with this force to accommodate more
than you individually might accomplish.
	Thank you for being in attendance today.  I hope my words and Evanson's
words have given you some food for thought.  I remain in attendance with you to
be engaged if you so desire.
	Evelyn:  There will be a planning meeting today for the next regional
conference.  We know you don't care when or where it takes place.  Would you
to throw anything into the mix?
*	Elyon:  I would make comment as to the great joy to be held when
individuals such as yourselves are so motivated as to come together in service
for your brothers and sisters.  You, from your own experiences, have come to
learn that the fine details are not as important as the act itself of service. 
You have also learned that every effort you make in this direction meets with
certain success.  Many individuals are benefited from the effort of the
group.  I also extend our commitment to help you facilitate this upcoming
gathering by every and all means we have at our disposal.  We would feel free to
communicate with you as to the most appropriate spiritual approaches, and we
certainly will leave the details of what you would eat and where you would stay
and what you would do during this time up to you to decide.  We will be anxious
to watch over your shoulders for every possible opportunity for spiritual
and we are certain that this will be a fruitful occasion in that regard.  We
prefer to leave issues such as topics and themes up to you, as you are more
likely to raise these from your own understanding.  We will work with any
suggestions you have.  As you are aware, we drop many hints along the way.
	I appreciate your effort to engage us in this process.  We recognize this
desire on your part, and we will make attempts to accommodate you to the very
limits of our mandate.
	If I may go one step further, I might point out that, in so creating this
upcoming event, you are deeply engaged in the creation of the stage which you
will form and which you will set for the upcoming performance of your spiritual
light.  So, you have a free hand to design this stage to accommodate any
means of
spectacular spiritual performances.
*	Malvantra (Jonathan):  This is Malvantra speaking.
	Many have been disappointed upon reading and then attempting to apply the
phrase, "Ask and you shall receive" for, subsequent to asking, there appears to
be no forthcoming reception.  Let me describe the process so that you may better
understand the interval of time that will necessarily transpire.
	In the physical realm it is easy, upon receiving a petition, to traverse
space, to undergo a duration of time, and deliver said request.  That is the
simplest mechanism of this principle.  However, when it comes to the
reception of
things spiritual, there is often required a transformation in the asking
individual in order for the reception to be appropriate and complete.  When you
ask, be prepared to be adjusted, for this adjustment is necessary for you to
reach an alignment that will point you in the direction of your request.
this alignment you will be able to ascend, that is, to grow, to become further
receptive.  Through this ascension you will reach your goal, and that is the
attainment of the plateau whereupon the answer will be immediately forthcoming.
	All petitions are granted their answers immediately from the side of
divinity.  But these other courses of action must be taken to make it all
possible on the side of the creature.
	Jonathan:  Is cosmic mind different from other mind in the universe?  Or is
cosmic mind the broader umbrella of superuniverse mind that takes on the form of
adjutant function on this level, with morontia mind in between?  We read
that the
soul is mid-mind, between the material mind and the higher cosmic mind.
*	Mantutia (Daniel):  Cosmic mind would be most correctly viewed as the mind
bestowed by the Master Spirit of your superuniverse.  The mid-mind, as you term
it, would be that mind bestowed on a universe by the associated Mother Spirit to
that particular realm of her activity.  Adjutant mind is specifically pertaining
to the mind which is usable on the evolutionary mortal spheres.  Adjutant mind,
as you have read, has seven different functions, seven different applications,
that may be accessed and used by all levels of evolved planetary life from
celled life through human will creature.  The mid- or universe form of mind may
not be accessed by any but self-willed, freewill individuals.  The mind of your
local universe characteristic of your individual Mother Spirit, Nebadonia, is a
downstepping of the cosmic mind of Master Spirit number seven that is accessible
by all will creatures within the boundaries of Nebadon.
	This is as detailed a description as I am permitted to give at this time. 
However, you may be assured it is infinitely more complex than what I have
in this short time.
	Jonathan:  Thank you.  I get confused because of the three levels,
spiritual, morontia, and physical.  There's cosmic mind throughout taking on
various forms, but perhaps beyond Nebadon we are more fully functioning as
cosmic-minded at the spirit level.  Are there two ways of speaking of cosmic
*	Mantutia:  Indeed, as there are both spiritual, morontia, and physical ways
to speak of local universe mind.
	Jonathan:  Thanks.  That will help in my studies.
*	Mantutia:  I am Mantutia, and I enjoy responding to your curiosity on
cosmic levels.
