FEBRUARY 10, 2002

I am ABRAHAM. Greetings. Your lighthearted atmosphere here this evening
makes this task so much more simple and enjoyable. You each individually
possess great strength and power, but collectively we are able to do so much
more than you know. I am with gratitude to Father for His unfailing guidance
and watch-care, for at this point in time I dread to think of what existence
might be without it.

Through the power of worship I find that I get to understand Father a bit
more, I perceive His true nature. As mortals we can assume a great many
aspects of deity personalities, but it is through worship that we release
our preconceived notions, and are opened to greater understanding of who our
First Source and Center really is. God is who you make Him, so to speak. He
is whatever possibilities that are in your minds view of Him. We can be
limited by our faith levels or we can excel with divine possibilities.
Through the good practice of worship we are expanding our thought reality
into knowing the true nature of our Father.

To perceive Father as a harsh judge has us live our lives with the fear that
everything we do is under constant scrutiny, and will be judged and either
condemned or commended, depending on the situation--certainly a limited way
to live the mortal life. As we better know Father, we learn He is a true
Caretaker, in that He truly desires to see us excel in everything we do.
With this faith level we will live our lives as if the universe is with us
and there is nothing we cannot do.

At this point in time this part of the world is truly the hub of Urantia.
With all the activities taking place here now we are learning to cross many
historic barriers to incorporate the Brotherhood of Man on earth. While
these Olympic games are competitive, they hold more now than ever such
goodwill and sportsmanship. While each individual strives for their personal
best, they are always working for the good of the whole team.

The energy that is being generated is definitely nutrition for the cosmic
mind. While a great many individuals have come together to organize these
games, a great many more celestial organizers have come to put this goodwill
experience into a plan of action that will further generate new avenues of
spiritual development. In the struggle of competition we are learning that
no victory is ever worth hurting another.

As we begin to really understand our Father, we begin to love one another as
He loves us. Your sorrow is my sorrow. Your joy is my joy. As we begin to
really know the Source from which all things stem, we see the connection
between all of us. We see the downfall of another is our downfall. We see we
have the power to heal or wound. When we understand the true nature of
Father, we better understand the equality between all His children, all the
races, gender, financial status and positions of power and prestige. There
really is no seat any higher than another in the Kingdom.

To expand your understanding on the true nature of Father we feel we have a
distinct place in the universe. We need not act out to draw attention to our
own importance, no, for true joy comes from within. Joy comes from knowing
the spiritual life is real. God is real and we live our lives as if we
believe in that with all our heart and mind, yes.

Last week we spoke of attachments and how they create a distorted perception
of reality. Our priorities change from Truth, Beauty and Goodness to selfish
purposes or survival purposes, yes. The hardest disappointments to bear are
those realities you have built your life on--revealing themselves to be
unstable, as if you have wasted so much time and energy putting your heart
and mind into these things.

Do not waste anymore time in the punishment of regret, the limited mindal
game of 'only if.' Move onto a new thought direction, become enthusiastic
over future possibilities from past lessons learned. Do not dwell in your
regrets and become further limited by them, no. God really is who you make
Him out to be. That concept is extremely influential in your own mind. You
will definitely live your life accordingly.

Perhaps the best method of understanding the true nature of God is to
strengthen your relationship with the Creator Son, Michael of Nebadon, Jesus
of Nazareth, Son of Man, Son of God. What do we know of the Master? He was
undoubtedly tender, and yet possessed an indescribable divine strength. He
was personable, and yet able to relate with all people from all walks of
life. He was indeed sympathetic, but never allowed His fellows to lay down
before their troubles. The Master could be found doling out words of power
and wisdom, and yet find humor in most everything--superbly balanced, yes.
If you have seen the Son--you have seen the Father. While the two
personalities are definitely distinct and individual, their personality
characteristics are alike in many ways. We come to know Father through the
setting aside of ourselves in worship. We come to know the Son through
working out life's details through conferring with the Son.

The best that we can strive for is God-likeness and to reinforce these
relationships with Father and the Master we learn their personality aspects,
their attributes. In the God-likeness is where we will find the best of
ourselves. It is where we will take up the banner of Brotherhood and lay
down the shield of selfishness. In doing our best are we at a most awesome
position to serve, to be apostles and ambassadors for the Kingdom.

As our perception grows of the true nature of God, then do we learn more
about ourselves. Yes, there is a little more understanding when we make
mistakes. There is a little more tenderness when we find we measure not up
to our own expectations. There is always the increased hope that while we
are fallible beings, our Caretakers lead us ever Heavenward, and the past is
simply stepping stones.

You have great opportunity now, my friends, to truly touch the lives of
those you come into contact with. Not through the preaching and teaching
from the Book, no, but through simply showing that you really care, that you
are really standing side-by-side with your fellows. You can make a huge
difference in their lives by showing a bit of interest in who they are.
People become more important when you understand the true nature of our
Caretakers, attachments release their hold on you and you can really begin
to serve, to make a difference, to be a director of destiny, yes.

This week journal your thoughts on the aspects of Father and Michael. How
are you limited by your beliefs? How have your beliefs changed in just this
past year and how are you better because of it? Continue to work on
detaching from those things that do not direct destiny, do not leave a
lasting impression of all that is good, yes.

This is a new time in history, children. The spiritual energy is becoming
more potent, and of course, energy moves matter. Time will seem to move more
swiftly and your participation in it will not only be of great assistance to
us but a tremendous joy to you.

No questions. I do have a deep and abiding love for you each. I would be
most honored to meet with you in your stillness journaling time. Think not
that you are unknown to me or the spiritual realm. Believe that you are an
integral part of this wonderfully orchestrated universe. My love goes with
you. Until next week, shalom.
