Mark: After the other night I was impressed with how significant being in
tune together with the attitude of gratitude is to encouraging the process
that I would like to acknowledge the gratitude that we all have in coming
together and being a part of such a wonderful group as we enjoy. And during
these times how much we as a group are in gratitude for the fellowship of
our unseen friends who so lovingly and faithfully minister to us as we look
to them. As we seek they are ever present to help us find and I believe we
are all one in our gratitude for this process and for this reality that we
create and uphold in this process.

Elyon: [Mark] Greetings, I am Elyon here to join you in the expression of
gratitude for such a warm group of friends as we enjoy. In relation to your
discussion, perhaps we should have a few words about this phenomenon of
acceptance and letting go of resistance to that which is. As you all know in
your own lives, you have come to certain points where you have had long
cherished ideas of how things were or how things are according to your
understanding of them and in respect for your desire that they adhere to the
pattern that you recognize and are familiar with and therefore have grown
comfortable with.

Each one of you have experienced having been brought to a point with a
cherished idea of a new found awakening or understanding that this long held
belief falls short of the ideal and you have experienced; what you might
refer to as an ah-ha moment or an epiphany and from that moment forward you
no longer see your long held idea in the same light as in your willingness
to be granted more awareness your perspective was enhanced and what you
thought to be a rather absolute truth or condition or circumstance turned
out to be only a partial understanding.

With the addition of greater insight all at once you sensed yourself losing
your firm grip on what was a solid understanding that you possessed and
within a moment you became transformed of your awareness and expanded of
your perspective. If conditions are right and you are willing and you are
able you may experience the rather jarring episode of releasing your grip on
your previously held idea in order to transfer your grip to another more
inclusiveideaof reality.

This is much like the experience you may have had as a young child of
swinging on the rings, holding firmly to one ring as you swing back and
forth and at some point developing the courage and the willingness to take
the risk to loosen the grip on one ring and grab for the next. After you
have reached a certain willingness and a certain ability you are able to
transfer yourself from this firm grip on one ring of awareness and grab
boldly and with intention, the next ring and transfer your entire being to a
new perspective, a new awareness.

In this same way you may eventually find yourselves transferring from one
ring to the next to the next as you develop the comfort in letting go of
your secure position in order to gain the benefit of the forward momentum to
receive when you are willing to let go of that ring in a conscious and
active effort to reach for the next. It may take the small child some time
to develop comfort in their ability and generate enough desire to accomplish
this transfer of position but with some time and experience and not a little
courage and faith they eventually master the process of moving from ring to
ring with no more fear and uncertainty but rather with joy and fun in the

Likewise, you all are gaining confidence in your efforts to reach out and
grab the next ring to securely make this transfer with no adverse effects.
You have not lost your grip and fallen off, you have not experienced defeat
or trauma in this process as may have been feared but rather you have
experienced the joy and exhilaration for having been willing to extend
yourselves out, to reach for the next ring, to trust that you have the
skills and the tools necessary to make this transition in safety and in
comfort and now the process seems more like a game and appears to bring you
more joy and more peace.

So it is that this spiritual ascension down the row of rings may be seen
with enthusiasm and joyous expectation and as individuals who now are
excited at the prospects of growth and accomplishment, you become willing
and eager to reach out and attempt the next transfer of your awareness. But
all this is accomplished because of your willingness, because of your
intention, because you are ready to be about this exercise of being engaged
players on the playground.

So as a result of this eagerness to go out and play, to try to use the tools
in your toolbox, to be willing to receive that next insight to position
yourselves in the game so as to be a player, you provide the necessary
conduit for you to receive all that you seek in this process. But you are
right to observe that many a student on the playground harbors much
resistance and to those who are as of yet uncertain about their success,
they may be timid in reaching out for the next ring and transferring their
awareness until they have developed sufficient experience and understanding
to know that this is how the game is played; you must let go of that ring in
order to grab the next.

It is a pleasure to join you in this circle of friends this morning and I
now withdraw to allow this platform to be used by others, farewell.

Michael: [Kathy] When involved in every conflict of daily living, you are
able to separate your idea of what should happen from the actions that you
engage in with the other parties involved. You are the one that can step
back and remove your energy from the negative interaction with your brothers
and sisters. Many times when there is a conflict, the parties involved are
limiting their field of possible action. Each one has the idea of the
rightness of their concept of the situation. It is helpful for all parties
involved in conflict to clear a space in their thinking for expansion of
ideas and concepts.

Usually there is an area of commonality that is sometimes overlooked in the
defense of ones position. In future days you will encounter conflicts that
develop in the way individuals want to frame their life experiences. As
change begins to happen on this world with increasing speed you will find
that more space will need to be created in your thinking for expanded views
of what is workable and possible in your lives. Often the idea of change is
bewildering to mortals who have been comfortable with one mode of action or
one view of possible ways of organizing group action.

In future days you will find the necessity of letting go of some old ideas
in order to expand your new view of the reality of your surroundings. Change
can only happen in the direction of better outcome when some of the
restricting ideas that have been dominant are released and are expanded.
These exciting times of growth can be a time of joy instead of a time of
resistance and fear of change. You are encouraged to step boldly forward and
make space for a change towards love and light.

Monjoronson: [Mark] Greetings, this is Monjoronson here to offer a few more
words with respect to this idea of creating space. As was mentioned in your
earlier discussion, the best method for creating space is to engage in the
practice of stillness which creates this openness wherein new awarenesses
and ideas even ideals may be made known to you. If you are busy in your
thought processes and even in your physical lives, then your minds and
perhaps even your bodies are engaged in performing functions and tasks and
therefore your energies are focused on such pursuits.

Your available energies become directed at these accomplishments and
patterns and there is then very little room available for any modifications
to the pattern or any changes to the awareness. If you through active
intention create these gaps or these spaces where you are willing to lay
down your tasks and put aside your patterns even for small amounts of time,
you allow this great connection you have with your indwelling Adjuster, room
to get a word in edgewise so to speak for this activity of opening
yourselves up and then providing the willingness to embrace what you find in
this open space in the tool that you may use to accommodate this necessary
internal desire to enhance your perspective or to transfer your position
from this ring to that.

It is accomplished in these moments where it may seem as though you are
trying to do nothing when in fact you are trying to be everything. It is
your method that may be employed, your tool in the toolbox were you to
exercise your faith that in this space which you have created for this
purpose you will be granted that which you seek, a deeper awareness, a
greater understanding, a different perspective because when you are in this
state of openness and acceptance the divine pattern which may be useful in a
more proper interpretation of the situation may be overlaid onto your
thought stream and all of a sudden there is more there than you were aware
of and as a result of your having put forth the effort to make a space for
awareness to occur there is greater awareness.

But if one does not stop the freight train of thought, then there remains
little opportunity for the expansion of awareness that is a result of the
influence of divine pattern. One must stop the train of thought, of action,
of consciousness and have the benefit of the quiet space in which to
reorient yourself to the proper direction and speed and motivation that your
train of thought might take. This stopping to reorient yourself may be
likened to pulling your train of thought into the transfer yard where you
may refuel and reenergize and then redirect this train onto a new track and
into a new direction.

This is only possible when you slow this train down and even bring it to a
stop so that it may be refueled, reenergized, redirected and start out fresh
with a new objective, a new ideal to maintain and a new direction in pursuit
of that ideal. So see your efforts at creating this space as such a
switching yard for your train of thought and as such you may decide to
pursue any one of a variety of directions after you have been refueled and
refreshed with this new perspective and awareness.

I thank you for this opportunity to join you in this space that you create
for this activity. You all have shown your commitment to come together for
such a purpose and then each one individually to create the space to be here
in your consciousness and to embrace what may come of such a space created
for this purpose. As you have seen, as a result of your efforts to create
this space, there have been many joyful rewards just as if you have
completed your play at grasping the different rings.

I encourage you all to go out and about and bring this sense of joy and
peace that you feel even now and allow it to influence your daily activities
and elevate your daily chores into the status that we have been discussing
of this grand game of life. Be at peace and be in joy and be in love with
the game and with the life you have to be a player in such a game. Thank you
for this opportunity, farewell.

Olfana: [Kathy] I am responding to the call to live in joy. It is my utmost
pleasure to be in this group of shining souls. Be joyful and elevate the
level of joy in those about you.
