JANUARY 16, 2000

I am ABRAHAM. Welcome. You are a wonderful reason for me to be glad each
week we can meet. I am in gratitude to Father for He oversees my every need.
He combines my experiences to produce divine meanings and values so that I
may advance and take one step closer to Him, yes.

In my days in the flesh I viewed life as a battle, and that I must
continually gird myself with weapons for defense. I knew not that each one
of my experiences taught me how to move one step closer to who I was to be,
and to my divine caretakers, who planned my destiny. With the help of my
mentor and friend, Machiventa, I was able to see my experiences were
valuable, and I had to understand life's contrasts to move up in spiritual
levels of understanding.

One who is prejudice cannot understand the pain of it unless they have been
the recipient of prejudice. To advance in spiritual understanding you need
to experience the full spectrum of mortal living. Your experience is shaping
who you are becoming. It is moving you one step at a time closer to your

Do you struggle with those character flaws that place obstacles on your
divine path? If you are gaining value from this then the struggle is good.
Can you be close to Michael, and yet shun His light upon personal
unpleasantries? No. He shows you these things so that you may take yet
another step closer to Father and become who you were really meant to be.

Should you choose to forgo these experiences--then certainly must you know
they will continue in the life after this one. Expect experience; know these
things will occur; know that these things will move you closer to Father.
One cannot be devoted to drinking the cup, and then complain about mortal
experiences. All will experience certain events that will either bring light
and growth or bitterness and darkness.

In humility you are teachable. In despair you are giving up on your own
understanding. It is not necessary to fly into emotional upheaval during
experiences, for you know Father is at work and your advancement is
forthcoming. Does emotional upheaval serve? No. It may be a natural
instinct, but with the practice of self-mastery you can gain control over
your emotional state, and remain calm to receiving divine instructions.

I have a friend\student who from the time he was a child thought himself to
be above everyone else. He thought he was superior as far as mortals went.
Events would happen to him that would make him believe that God was indeed
cursing him. He could not understand why such injustices would befall such a
superior mortal as himself.

Was God unjust in allowing this experience to occur to this child of His?
No. He was allowing natural evolutionary procedures to unfold to teach this
child how to go one step closer to Him. This mans pride and ego was the
lesson to be unfolded, not the unjust laws of the universe. The character
flaw was the enemy to this mans life. Not necessarily a sin, but valuable
experience to wade through, understand it, and work it out.

Did Father and Michael aid in his humility? Yes, to a point where the light
of truth exposed his character flaw. Each mortal will know feelings of
superiority and inferiority, envy and kindness, cruelty and love, justice
and injustice. These experiences are a gift that helps you to become a
responsible universe citizen. Is my friend\student changed by the light of
Michael's truth? Yes he is.

Michael revealed to him the origin of his character flaw of superiority, and
that Father was not knocking him down, but pointing him upward, getting his
attention, so to speak. My friend now understands his early childhood
training had led him to believe that he was above others. His character flaw
presented obstacles on his mortal path where he could not maintain
friendships or relationships or even parent correctly.

Experience brought him to the understanding that a change was needed. An
imprisonment such as this was not worth the maintenance. His children took
the focus off himself long enough to ask for Michael's light and liberty to
show his children a new and better way.

Michael asks that you do not punish yourself for the realization of these
shortcomings. That is indeed a waste of time--instead focus your eyes upon
Him and allow Him to take you through the experience in His gentle manner.
Receive the most from these experiences by remaining observant of your
surroundings. Do not fly into emotional upheavals. Concentrate on the value
to be produced from mortal experiences. Humility is not punishment or
belittling from the divine care-takers, no. It is an open ear, a receiving
mind, an understanding heart, yes.

This week I ask you to ask yourselves: If I have committed myself to Michael
can I complain of the cup put before me? Can I relax in His watch-care and
be observant of things to unfold? Does self-belittling serve? Does a humble
heart serve?

I am sorry--no questions this evening. I am scheduled to be elsewhere, but
know that I am available to you each during the week. Plan for quiet time to
connect with those divine sources. As always my love is with you. Until next
week, shalom.
