AUGUST 13, 2001

I am ABRAHAM. I am your friend/teacher. Greetings. How wonderful it is to
behold the beauty of your fellowship. There are many different individuals
here this evening with varying backgrounds and belief/faith systems. It is
beautiful to see the acceptance of each soul as a loved child of God without
the burden of trying to change one anothers beliefs.

You can only speak from what you know. There is liberty to accept or reject
ideas, but how wonderful it is to see the fellowship and the joy that
springs from gathering together, yes. We all have differing personality
makeup that makes us each unique and often times we find the differences to
be too much. It would be ideal if we could all view one another as the
Master does, but in your short years in the flesh that seems to be an
unreachable goal.

The Master viewed individuals at soul level or at their 'child of God'
status. He allowed others to show themselves just as they really were. He
bound them with not assumptions or labels. Like the unfolding of a blossom,
He did not coax them into becoming something other than what they truly
were. He pressured them not into becoming the very best that they could be.

The Master made not judgments against His fellows for even He was
unqualified to do so. There are so many factors that make up the personality
that build character, that add soul growth. The Master desired to learn who
each unique individual really was without imposing judgments or assumptions.
By your own experience of meeting new people you can find distinct
personality types, but really all the factors do not align to make solid
judgments about who they really are.

Environment, culture, media and current fads unfortunately do put pressure
upon you to become what they believe is right and acceptable. The youth of
this generation suffer confusion and are forced to bloom when they are not
ready mentally or spiritually. The peer pressure is brutal in that you need
to measure up to certain standards to be accepted. Every mortal, every
living thing, desires to be loved and accepted as they are.

This world is quite bound in spirit and practically stunted in growth. In
marriage you find a great deal of criticism that binds you from acting as
you normally would. A partner/friend/spouse may feel no liberty to take
personal initiative for fear of criticism. One may feel as though they must
be what the partner finds acceptable and right or lose their love. A person
begins to be lost and become untrue to themselves and to Father.

You cannot force a flower to bloom or impose your own standards of beauty
upon it, no. Most individuals want to grow and become better with time. When
there is the imposition of all these standards the concepts of growth are
confused and there is not liberty to find the way. Many of the more mature
adults will scoff at their youth, as if they were already born with all the
experience that has brought them where they are today. They forget about the
daily lessons, the pain, the confusion, the long road it took to gain

Look not to others as if you must force them to bloom with your own ideals
of beauty. You can perhaps only offer some light, some encouraging drops of
nutrients, some fresh air and room to grow, yes. The Master was intrigued
with the varying human personalities, minds, egos and each individual story
that shaped them into who they were at the present time, yes.

Many times in a marriage the soul feels buried and the ego seeks exaltation.
One friend/partner/spouse will compete in fields of knowledge to gain their
loved ones attention, respect and love. This competition is unhealthy and
the loved one is made to feel inferior. In a healthy marriage individuals
want a partner, a teammate--not a parent, a judge or a superior, no.

This week I ask you to contemplate allowing freedom for yourselves, for
others. Find time to journal how you feel pressured into being something you
are not. Write down how you impose this pressure on others. Ponder this
freedom of growth, my friends. We will have questions next week. Until then,
know that my love grows for you each time we meet. Until next week, shalom.
