MAY 12, 2002

Greetings. I am ABRAHAM. What faith and trust you exemplify in welcoming me
each week. What dedication and perseverance you show in living these lessons
every day. I feel quite at home walking among you, knowing that you each
love me as I am. In turn I pray that you know we look at you in the same
way. Everyone has their flaws, but also everyone has their talents. All have
been shaped by their personal experiences and their decisions made.

How comforting it is to know that we can be exactly who we are, good or bad
and still be welcomed and loved. That is the meaning of a real family. The
family concept will follow you and be built upon throughout your eternal
career. It has been proven that biological families are not always
encompassing that ideal unconditional love and acceptance. We here are quite
blessed to know that there really is not much greater love to be found than
right here in this very group.

There are men here who are excellent fatherly examples to those who have not
the experience of a father. There are men here who have not the experience
of that confiding comfort of a beloved brother. There are men here who are
not typical of the average man on Urantia that seem to be led by ego instead
of spirit. How blessed are we to have you, our brothers, among us. We each
will benefit by your counsel and comfort throughout our days. On that same
note, how wonderful it is for us to be blessed by the various female
personalities here. Many are wonderful examples of motherly caretakers, who
are always on the watch for one and all's well-being. How comforting it is
to also know the benefits of an understanding and loyal sister.

What a beautifully balanced family we have to rely upon throughout our
adventures in the flesh. How blessed are we that we may meet our universe
Parents through one another. How wonderful it is to know that where one may
be lacking there is another to bring comfort and understanding. This is the
family. This is the Kingdom. This is our rock. Out in the everyday busyness
of life we are many times overcome with various difficulties and this is so
draining spiritual, emotionally, mentally and physically. What a blessing it
is to know your family awaits your presence each week to aid you in
recharging that spiritual energy. What strength there is to venture back out
into the busyness of life. Of course there will always be those family
lessons we will learn with one another. There will always be some hurt
feelings or misunderstanding, yes, but never do those occurrences ever
outweigh the good to be gained from the family.

Lessons on family life are usually the first taught upon arriving on the
mansion worlds. While some solitude can be quite serene and rejuvenating,
isolation can be quite detrimental to ones overall well-being. When we view
the Master's life with His apostles we can find the various personalities
that created conflict, the differing personalities that were diplomatic, the
personalities that rallied faith and hope, the personalities who stopped
pettiness and brought positive focus, yes.

Those worlds settled in Light and Life are taught 'the world is my family,
every woman is my sister, every man is my brother, every child is my child.'
As you each grow closer to the spirit you will find it easier to embrace
this concept for yourselves. There will not be too much of that awkwardness
between strangers, because deep down we all have a great deal in common.
There will always be those certain personalities that cannot seem to be
reached and this is not to worry, only to feel comfort in that you have put
forth your best effort and sometimes you just have to move on. When your
resources have been exhausted with certain difficult personalities it is
acceptable to leave them to Father.

How do those families on enlightened worlds deal with family difficulties,
injustices or misunderstandings? Usually the problems are discussed between
those individuals involved in the difficulty. Many times there are older
family members who aid in mediation and offer guidance. Sometimes there are
experts elicited. There is always a point to where many families will seek
the counsel of a spiritual counselor. My point here being that always is
there action taken towards reconciliation. Never do these family members
allow resentment to be built because of pride or slothfulness. All
difficulties are handled immediately to maintain the well-being of the

You, my friends, have been through many difficulties and have grown
considerably with each hurdle. This is indeed part of your training, part of
your morontia correction, part of what you will be teaching in the future. I
find it wonderful to see your efforts towards contacting one another during
the week and not just at meeting times, no. Fellowship is filled with
benefits that bring comfort to the soul as well as the mind. In this age of
disposable families there are a great many difficulties arising because
individuals are seeking that comfort from family life.

This week as you reach out and communicate with one another, reach also for
those in your own families, as well as coworkers, neighbors or even
strangers. As we move forward towards Light and Life we will be dealing with
everyone on a family level. We feel safe here in this room to be who we
really are. Let us practice this week on taking that idea out into the
world. Reach out to those individuals you meet with a brotherly attitude and
see the power of God at work. Are there questions?

CALVIN: Abraham, I would like to formally welcome Robert P. into our group.
LaReen is back with us and we have Mary H. & Joilin J. going back home this

ABRAHAM: Greetings and welcome. Are there questions?

AZSURAY: Abraham, I would like to ask a question about the Light and Life
era. I wonder if you could tell us what the religion will be called or will
it be under all the same religions but have the same teachings that we have
now, because it is suppose to be one religion, one language and one race?
Could you possibly know that? Thank you.

ABRAHAM: Azsuray, that is a most difficult question to answer. From my
knowledge there is really not name nor description of religion on those
enlightened worlds. It is so completely common that there is not various
religious leaders promoting this or that, no. Those enlightened worlds are
also incircuited spiritually so that their closeness with God does not
require persons or books to go through. We are definitely far from that
picture you have portrayed for us, my daughter, but definitely we are on our
way when the majority of individuals on the planet at the very least have
faith in a Higher Being, yes. Does this at all help. (Yes. Thank you.)
You're welcome.

SETH: Abraham, Jessie and I are soon to wed and we have invited my two
oldest brothers to the wedding. There is a feud between these two brothers
and the remaining part of our family. My intent is to only be the in
presence of love in bringing them into this family celebration and ritual of
our marriage. I just want to know from your perspective if I'm overstepping
my boundaries and theirs. I want to mind my own business, but I also feel
inspired to bring us together. Do you have any comments on that?

ABRAHAM: Would expressing your viewpoint to your brothers cause any harm? (I
don't believe so.) Then my son, Seth, that is practically all you can do.
The rest is up to them. These family difficulties are hard on all the
members and some will not ever find enough forgiveness or love to allow
healing. You can only express your love for them and your own opinion and
allow the outcome to be what it will. Sometimes this brings about healing.
Sometimes it does not, but it is certainly worth making the effort for. Is
this helping. (Yes, very much. Thank you.) Another question?

ROBERT: Abraham, what is the nature of the spiritual names and purpose for
knowing them?

ABRAHAM: The spiritual names could be thought of as names of the soul or the
name that God knows you by. The names are normally revealed upon fusing with
the Adjuster, but for this Correcting Time the names will be revealed to
allow individuals feel a certain closeness with Father and to the spiritual
life. Those individuals who receive their names tend to feel a closer
presence to God, as if He knows them personally, which He does. Yes. Is this
answering? (Yes.) Another question?

MIRIAM: Abraham, I was thinking it just kind of blows me away, like twenty
years ago or when I was a little kid I used to think about how I wished
people loved me or I would think about the differences between me and
people. Now I am so overwhelmed, like this week because of Mothers Day for
starters, what a precious gift that I have my mother that always
unconditionally loved me no matter what I did, and I was a mess, and now my
husband is the same and my friends. This experience of what I have in common
with people instead of differences. Just your lesson tonight, it just
resounds the difference of knowing that Father loves you and building that
more and more. The more you feel it the more you see that we are alike. It
is pretty powerful. It is really simple, but I could never see that, but now
it is everywhere. I guess that is not a question, but it is amazing.

ABRAHAM: Beautifully said, my daughter Miriam, but this understanding took
many years of experience to transform your thinking, in which brought those
thoughts into actuality. Not that there was not commonality or love before,
but because of your realigned positive thoughts you could perceive this
love, and feel the gratitude therefrom. Yes, this is life changing,
transforming, yes. Would not it be beautiful for all children from the
beginning to know what took you many years to understand? Someday this will
be reality. Wonderful comment, Miriam. Another question?

CALVIN: Abraham, speaking of families in your lesson, the importance of a
family, it would appear then during the dark ages prior to the Correcting
Time here, it was quite an asset then that some of these religions that had
a strong family structure or base or teaching probably held things together.
Would you comment on that?

ABRAHAM: There is not a more excellent example of that than the Master's
family. There was spiritual lessons taught, the basics really, but not text
book laws and rules. The Master taught by example. He lived a righteous life
and therefore His words to His family had meaning. He did not preach
spirituality one day and then go against that concept the next. It is most
beneficial when parents can live a right life and teach children from their
example. At each age children are ready to learn new concepts. (TR: I am
sorry. I am about done here. I am hot. I am getting tired.) It is best to
teach those new understandings when children ask questions. Forced spiritual
learning is very detrimental to that child who is supposed to believe God is
about love and doing good.

Yes, yes, we are finished. (Laughter.) You each know my love grows for you
more and more every week. Until next time, shalom
