MALVANTRA MELCHIZEDEK: How exquisite and sublime is your entrance into the kingdom, established by a divine Sovereign under the auspices of the overcontrol of the eternal Trinity. Your commitment is admirable. Your purpose is noble. We accept your choice to gather together in sacred union to build solidarity, to encourage each other, to provide leadership and to express, in your unique creative patterns, Michael’s love and Nebadonia’s maternal grace, flowing to sustain and to motivate you. The radiance of your eternal Gem will permeate every atom of your being. You will vibrate and shatter the bonds of fear as you become saturated with the essence of infinite love.
The ocean of love accepts all rivers, and you should drink thereof as a daily diet. The ambrosia of eternal nurturance awaits those who lift themselves and partake of the never-ending feast. Gather your forces and shine your commitment as a banner of love, with the pride of the sisterhood and brotherhood of united mortals standing steadfast to persevere through the upcoming challenges, with the valiant loyalty of believers in Michael’s reign and in Jesus’ inimitable gospel teaching. Fear not! For the watch care provided is supremely satisfying, and the seraphim smile as their wards consistently choose to follow the path of righteousness. May your time together be fruitful, and may your expressions of goodwill enable your brethren to remember, as mentioned yesterday, the presence of our Universal Father is and ever will be our primary mandate. (T/R Stephen Mark)
MOTHER NEBADONIA: This is Nebadonia, here with you all. Michael sends his greetings. He is very well pleased at how eager and receptive you are to the teachings. He wishes you well on your journey of life and asks you not to fear what may seem to be a troublesome future. In reality, it is not as bad as you think. True there will be tragedy and heartbreak as the years go by, but this, too, will pass. This is still a clearing out of the Lucifer Rebellion and the default of Adam and Eve, but even with these tragic events in your history, great strides have been made in uplifting the human consciousness and spirituality.
We are pleased at the progress of this mission, especially as it has manifested in the United States. It started in New Zealand and is growing in England, but other languages are being touched. We greet this new event joyously because heretofore it has been an English-speaking “nation,” but now the Spanish have been contacted, and there are movements afoot in China and Japan. This is not an isolated instance of contact; rather it is worldwide. There are many who are very receptive to our teachings. Michael is very pleased. He says to continue what you are doing and contact others who are interested in being contacted. All they have to do is sit quietly and ask for a teacher. There are thousands of beings from other worlds who have eagerly requested to be sent to your troubled world and we are just waiting for people who are receptive to these things. But we do not fear because great strides have been made in the last ten years, far more than we had anticipated.
So be of good cheer. We love you and we ask you to continue what you are doing. You are well protected, so fear not for any untoward event. He sends greetings and love to you all. (T/R Stella Religa)
TEACHER ABRAHAM: I am Abraham. How my heart swells with pride to see you all together in your joyousness. You are a tribe after my own heart. Indeed, your ability to multiply and spread this effort across the country and join hands in fellowship, even attempting to bridge your culture with other countries and peoples is exciting to behold. You have the benign virus in your midst. The benign virus will not be squelched. As you grow, as you become more faithful and allow yourselves to embrace the greater reality of the truth as the Master portrayed it, in your own lives even as he did in his, you bring about that which he came to instill in you, in us, in this world, in this place, in space and time. You have been infused now with the divine love that we have all known as a result of having a relationship with our Michael Son. Like the Niagara Falls that have tremendous power, the love that he overflows into you can illuminate those even miles and miles away because of your integrity in loving him and in loving each other as you know he would. And thus he does. And you witness again and again the beautiful poise and activating power of the living Jesus when you lay hold of one another in this wonderful virus of divine love that is creating a nation of faithful.
We are indeed happy in your choices, in your selections, and in your resolutions. We attend you in your upcoming agendas, in anticipation of yet even more of this which we bow down to, that which is of the Father, in and through his sons and daughters throughout the realm. I will be with you in spirit through your gathering and with my home group, as well. Thus, I am learning, like Jesus, to be in two places at once. Like you, I don’t want to miss anything. I want to be where I am needed. I leave you in the capable hands of the Teacher Corps and the ministry of those agents of Michael and Nebadonia that you know and love and cherish and anticipate. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad that your hour has come. Shalom. (T/R Gerdean)
ARTISAN BAKIM: May I speak please? I am Bakim. It is my joy to work in cohesion with many beautiful artists who come to grace your blighted and troubled, but very inspirational planet. Here we see the genuine article; here we see the front lines of spiritual conflict; here we see grand and glorious stories of soulful redemption as you grow and blossom fragrantly in the empowering and growing light, the light that you reflect so grandly, and the faith that has brought you across many geographical expanses to this holy and beautiful place where you flow, living waters together, of love, of faith, of courage, compassion, mercy and joy, of ultimate joy, the joy your Creator Son brings to you and each of us, servants, artisans, teachers, guides, and angels who flock here to be part of this glorious time of redemption and spiritual growth that extends across the universe and indeed across the universe of universes, for your Creator Son manifested one of the greatest glories of the time and space worlds right here, and, of course, this world is protected as you are protected. You are a greenhouse of growing spirits and souls, luxuriously green and blossoming into your individual and highly motivated and spiritualized missions to bring love. You do this so well.
I ask that as you move into these coming days, you flow truly as the artists that you are. You have been conditioned with full exposure to the real truth of stillness, the communion with your Universal Father who lives within you as the Center of All. And, gloriously, your teachers and guides and the angels who surround you all, join you in this orienting stillness.
Today you experienced some of the powering beauty of this amazing planet, washed in the rushing torrents of water, as the world cleanses itself with water day by day of every kind. You are each part of this ocean, empowered as sparkling droplets into cascading and flowing streams that bring this world surely, steadily, patiently, surely, toward light and life. We applaud you for being here, for taking these steps of faith that have adjoined us together in this place. I ask that you take your conditioning so far, and bring it forth into a new, expanded, and accelerated level of celestial connectivity.
When you leave this conference, bring your faith to action. It is not your quest to sit and think about stillness or to think about finding connection, or to think about becoming a spiritually connected person. As you think, as you try, as you strive, you fail -- for truly this is a matter of celestial release. As you sit in the stillness, bring it forth to affirmative purpose from head to toe. Your head must be in balance. Both sides of your mind in pure balance. And you can bring forth, through the worshipful experience, as this balance occurs within your head and mind, the lightness in your mind can bring forth an imaginary wafting away of all cares and concerns. In this lightness you are opened and you bring forth the energies that permeate your being to your feet, anchored and rooted to the earth. I ask you to visualize, intuit, and feel these connections, for mind is the controlling factor that brings forth this connectivity. As the strength of your roots, as the strength of your upreach grows in intensity, then your whole body begins to vibrate, and in not trying comes the successful connectivity that makes you an electric lightning magnetic conduit.
Do you understand? I am asking you to bring these things in your mind in order to bring them to reality. The program is outlined quite adroitly to bring you forth in a measured way toward conclusion where you may go home comfortable in the assurance of an intimate personal relation-ship with a teacher of your choosing and of our choosing to suit your needs, and an artisan to bring forth your creative impulses through the boldness that you must develop in order to express those creative impulses. I ask you to bring stillness to action in the course of this conference. All artists, all guides, all the beautiful beings who permeate this space with you join with you in this celebratory graduation for you must accelerate your efforts. Your world is quickening and you must quicken with it. Do you see the incredible pace of changing events? You must not only deal with them, but deal with them in stride, for you have the holy Light, the living water and you are flowing and you can make this universal gathering a pivotal turning point for you to bring forth a greatly enhanced sense of personal spiritual being.
The potential is for great rewards to you in the course of these days and you must feel this energy together. Much can be achieved and it will be joyous in the achieving. We will be with you intimately and closely and lovingly in these times, for we, indeed, do love you quite deeply. In these many years we have had many experiences together. We have watched you through tragedies and through triumphs begin to bring forth the qualities in yourself that ordinarily are not seen until well into mansonia. The quickening: it is you, your planet, your home, and a glorious resurrection to the light for all these troubled worlds of the quarantine. We love you and we will be here with you through the course of this conference. Namaste. (T/R: Jim Cleveland)
TEACHER TARKAS: I am so honored to keynote in representation of my beautiful brothers and sisters on this side as we gather ourselves in this beautiful and holy place to worship with you, to rejoice in the presence of the All, and the All One. We have seen years of progress in this mission and we have seen evolvement and blossoming to understand that it is not a small thing. It is vast, and encompasses not only your world but also the worlds of rebellion and, in fact, all of Nebadon, which follows closely the world of the cross.
You are much blessed to be here, to be on the path which is longer. The longer the path, the more consummate are the great spiritual joys that await you at the end of this living rainbow of living water. You are living water! Not drops, but a rushing torrent of brothers and sisters throughout the planet, in tributaries like blood vessels that permeate the world and bring life to all corners. These tributaries flowing into an ever greater ocean, which is the realization of God and this loving ocean, grows as each of you grow from within. The Correcting Time begins within the hearts and souls of each of you.
The Center of Renewal – upon your sheets, upon your pillowcases, you see C.O.R. It is a Center of Renewal. It is a core (COR), a place where you can get in touch with the core of your goodness and begin to bring it forth as we change this world and bring it to light and life. From this core come changes that affect the universe. From this core of which the Holy Father had so much faith that he imbued a spark of His life within yours, so that no longer do you have to feel desperate for Father, or hungry for Father, or long for Father because Father’s love lives within each of you. Over the centuries and generations the spirits have been added, the Spirit of Truth, the Spirit of Conviction, and this massive Correcting Time, in which our beautiful Master will reclaim these worlds to the Father’s glory.
Here at the Center of Renewal is an opportunity for you to take serious stock in the quickening needs of this quivering and quickening planet, for indeed it moves rapidly, and if you would be a follower, you may do so, but if you would be a true servant of truth and beauty and goodness and seek to imbue those around you with this universal love, then you must get busy. Things are quickening and you can find the energies and the connectivity here with all these energies permeating such that you will go forth energized and empowered with new perspectives in your mind, new feelings of beauty in your heart, and new goodness that you can bring forth within yourself so that you may reflect it daily, hourly, moment by moment, second by second, to all those within your very important aura. We will be confident in sending those to you who need your love, and they will appear before you and we will guide you as you turn your hearts to holy light. You will be giving the words, and more importantly, the presence, the balance, to these people and very often it is not with words.
I am so honored to represent our celestial teachers, many of whom will speak to you at this conference, as well as many artisans who long to work with you personally, privately, to bring forth your creative endeavors. Please call upon them and ask them specifically for the creative qualities and skills that you desire. Please ask, and please love one another and have a wonderful conference. We shall enjoy it with you. Namaste. (T/R: Jim Cleveland)
PARAMAHANSA YOGANANDA: Greetings dear ones, friends, children of God. I am Paramahansa Yogananda, a good friend to all of you, for I, too, am a child of God. I, too, lived the life that you have lived on this planet in the material body, yet yearning always to know God and to be like him. I, too, have tread the many steps that you have tread in order to arrive at the place that is our destiny. Our destiny is to become more like him every day. We all have that yearning desire, that burning desire, to know him, to love him.
I wish to share with you today a little message, a message of hope and inspiration and perhaps a touch of guidance for you. Keep at it, my friends. Never give up. Each day you arise, thank your Father for the day you have before you. Each day, whenever you take a step in which you feel you may stumble, thank your Father for giving you the opportunity to take the step. In this manner you are building the soul, you are building your connections to God. You are asking him to be a part of each little act that you take in your daily life. This is how the soul is built, not by the leaps and the bounds and the triumphs, but rather the small everyday steps that you take to love your fellow man, your sisters, your brothers, those who perhaps may have a station in life greater than yours or a station in life that may be perceived as less than yours. Your life in the eyes of God is as important as any other life. It takes each one of you to build his kingdom.
So I ask you humbly and with my heartfelt prayer for you, to take your steps slowly and carefully, with purpose and design, always with the thought that you are becoming as God in your daily lives. As each year goes by, you will become more like Him. Never give up, and always approach each day with joy, purpose, and ask your Father to share every moment with you. This is my thought, my message I wish to leave with you today. I am Paramahansa Yogananda, your friend and fellow traveler. Namaste. (T/R: Eugenia Bryan)
MACHIVENTA MELCHIZEDEK: I am Machiventa and I am pleased to be with you today, my children who have labored with great love and honor and diligence in advancing the kingdom of Michael. Thank you for your love for each other. Thank you for your patience and endurance in troubled times. We stand ready to assist always. All you need to do is ask. Our faithful crew and many of you know how that has affected you in your lives and have many testimonies of these things. I will pass on to another, but would continue in my prayer to the Father that we all remember how assisted we are in our progress toward him. I am thankful for his love. Amen. (T/R: Mark Greer)
TEACHER TOMAS: Beloveds, this is your friend, Tomas. I stand before you and open my arms wide to embrace the multitude that you are in happy rejoicing of our communion in this great purpose of Michael, expanding his reality into their realm, the realm of Nebadonia and the Master Son in their domain. It is a moment of pride for me to see the domain extend up into this portion of your planet. I had sought to make inroads into Canada and New York when I was assigned to Pittsburgh, and am glad to see that the seeds we have planted are being harvested. But I am more glad to see that you, in following the directives of your own Divine Indweller, are being drawn and led to this harvest of souls that shall yield the bread of life to your brethren on Urantia, to feed them the nourishment that they crave. The busy, anorexic children of your world hunger for that which you serve.
Blessings upon you and your attempts to feed the multitudes. I know the challenges you face. We in the invisible realms are your greatest support systems, cheering sections, and supporters, from the humble and agile United Midwayer Corps to Paradise itself. The efforts of this planet to reinstitute itself into the fold of Satania, Norlatiadek, Nebadon, and beyond is our effort, our goal, our assignment, our joy, and our accomplishment. We thank you for your contributions to this. Even though we stand over you and whisper in your ear, even though we open the field before you, it is you who makes the decision, who takes the step, and whether you follow the flow as a natural course of life or whether you consciously and conscientiously choose to take these steps matters not, for the soul is advancing the cause that we are engaged upon.
How I love to see the family enterprise in action. How I love to see you embrace each other in the spirit of your work together. We, in our sphere, likewise greet one another when we come together in moments like this, respite from the rigors of the work in the field, to rejoice and celebrate in the current harvest in anticipation of the fields yet to plow.
Beloved family, I am with you and for you. Let us be on our way. Farewell. (T/R: Gerdean)
CHRIST MICHAEL: This is Christ Michael. We congratulate you again on another successful conference. We rejoice at your persistence, we rejoice at your activity, your loyalty, your loving one another. You are the example. You are setting the stage for a worldwide recognition of the Teaching Mission. It is in its infancy, true, but it is picking up momentum. As Nebadonia said yesterday, we are reaching people in all parts of the world and they are astonished at what is occurring to them and around them. So be not discouraged by what you may see as slow action. In reality it is not. It is a phenomenon that is sweeping the world and is reaching individuals rather than one isolated group. Again, we congratulate you on your great, great love and persistence in studying the word of our Father. Thank you, my dear ones. You are very well loved. Your Father/Brother Jesus/Michael. (T/R: Stella Religa)
MAGISTERIAL SON: Greetings. I have been trying to make myself known here, and rest assured that I will be known to your planet as time unfolds. I am a Magisterial Son. There is resistance to receiving, due to the nature of the discussion at this conference regarding my arrival, but the plans for a Magisterial Mission are progressing. The time element is indeed the question. We are patient and waiting for the events on your world to be most facilitating for my ministry. When these events will present themselves are not in question. These events will present them-selves. The only question is time.
I would speak further this weekend but at this time, simply wish to greet you and to ask your receivers to feel free to open to my presence and allow, for here indeed we are conferring, are we not? Let us discuss the matters which will produce enlightenment for you, individually, for your group, and perhaps on to the world at large. I will at this time withdraw and allow another to speak. I do rejoice in the spiritual intent that you all have and feel myself to be welcome in your presence and I welcome you in mine. (T/R: Bob)
[Editors Note -- At this point, another T/R speaks up who had
been holding back, and the Magisterial Son continues]
Bring down a pillar of light to the crown chakra at the top of your head. See the pillar of light coming from the Father into your body, filling your heart, expanding, moving down through your spine, rooting you into the earth. Receive my presence. I am Monjoronson, the Magisterial Son of whom you speak. We are in this place and in this time, practicing the presence. Feel your connection to the great web of life. Some of you can visualize it. It is indeed a tangible web of light connecting each and every one of you. When you leave this place and scatter to the far corners from which you have gathered, these threads will remain and I will be present in those threads. Think of them daily, hourly, constantly if you can. This is the meaning of continuous prayer, to continue the connection you have with your Creator who is far greater than I.
Feel the reality of this truth. Pull it in to your solar plexus and hold it there. Now, my friends, for the message: You come to be loved. The Father comes to love you. He knows you as individuals, but sees you as a collective, a single energy expressing in creativity, in activity, in the love that you share between one another. It is so beautiful in his sight the love that is shared in this place and this time between you.
Come now to the center of your being, to the essence of who you are. Collect it to your heart chakra. Now let it rise to the top of your head. Now send it upward, climbing the ladder. Take this essence of who you are as far into the heavens as you may and hold it there. There are beings there to greet you, each of you greeting different ones. Endeavor to recognize them. Acknowledge their presence. Hold this frequency in your body. Each cell awakens to hold more light.
This is the way of spiritual growth; this is the way to know God; this is the way to bring light and life onto your planet, to work with the energies we are showering upon you at all times, the higher frequencies of spirit. The more you can be in harmony to meet these frequencies, the more light you will hold in your bodies, the more you will affect others around you simply by your presence, as Jesus did. Practice this presence. In your daily lives, give yourselves time and space, a quiet place. It is the greatest gift you can give yourself, and the world. It is something everyone can do. Be confident, give thanks, lift yourself to your Creator and be cradled in His arms. Nebadonia will nurture you, and your Father watch over you.
When I come in the flesh you will know me because you will have already met me in these higher frequencies in your stillness and will have no doubt, nor hesitation to believe and to follow. My friends, this work cannot be overdone, nor overemphasized. It may seem like a small thing, such an easy thing, and yet the effects are far beyond what you can comprehend. You see the picture only from your perspective. We see you as points of light in a great web and the angelic realms are pouring in their light more and more every day until people like yourselves can’t miss it. You’re absorbing it every moment, surrounded by it, so when you awake in your awareness to work with it, it expands and multiplies.
Now simply sit in a few more moments of silence and I bid you adieu for now. I’m not leaving with my presence, simply turning off the audible words. Thank you. (T/R: Leoma Sparer)
(Recording had background noise and was difficult to hear. Most of the lesson is intact, but the questions and a few lines are paraphrased based on the audible portions.)
AARON: Greetings to you all. I am Aaron. It is my pleasure to be with you tonight and speak with you. The importance of community is prevalent. With you all gathering here, you can see the value of your relationships to one another. The growth and development of relation-ships is truly the primary purpose you have in life, aside from the prime relationship with God. The relationships you hold to others in the Cosmic Family, spiritual and human, are the substance of your incorporation into the Supreme project of developing universal unity, an indivisible linking of all personality into one web of awareness, all parts knowledgeable of their role and function in the overall purpose.
My emphasis to you this evening is on the importance of individuality in developing universal unity. So often in your human attempts to feel unified with others you compromise your individuality to coexist peacefully with those around you, many, in an attempt to feel a sense of belonging. But true universal unity requires the maximum expression of individuality, not the selfish expression, not the sense of unbalanced focus on your needs at the expense of others, but the recognition that your individuality is as important as any other being’s individuality. Trying to find your expression of your personality requires you to understand this idea. As you strive to create a growing sense of community, it is important for you, as individuals, to feel more comfortable finding ways to express yourself while at the same time making a conscious attempt to recognize and honor the individuality of others who are in your presence. Do not diminish who you are to please another, but blossom who you are to fulfill the universal requirement of absolute expression of personality which is the realization of the Supreme Being.
So I exhort you to find who you are. Express yourself in an attempt to understand who you are, even while maintaining an awareness of all those other personalities around you so that your expression isn’t trampling on someone else’s expression. This is my offering for you this evening. I will remain present for a few questions after my friend and colleague speaks with you. Good evening. (T/R: Bob Devine)
ELYON: Greetings, this is Elyon. It is a great pleasure to be among you tonight. Gatherings such as this are very fruitful in uniting kindred spirits, and they are beneficial for sharing life’s spiritual experiences.
I would like to use the analogy of a grand puzzle. You have all come to this gathering with the pieces that you have acquired in your growth and in your personal outreach. Each of you brings part of the big picture. At a gathering such as this, you might say all of the edge pieces are already in place and defined. That would be the mission of students that are here with their individual pieces to place into the puzzle. As you relate to one another in loving association and as you move among one another sharing with the many diverse souls who have come to be a part of this, then it becomes easier for you to put pieces together that you previously could not see where they fit in. Experiencing the various pieces that others have with them show you relationships that you may not have been able to put together before. As you interrelate, you are all playing at putting together the puzzle and you begin to see what the picture looks like. Then another may come along and see where some of their pieces fit in, as well. As you lovingly share yourselves, your personalities, your paths, your goals, with each other the picture grows until you may stand back and see the bigger picture in its entirety. When you have finally recognized the puzzle and your pieces in it, you then realize when it is time to grow on beyond this particular environment. What looked like the outside pieces before open into a much larger picture. When you step outside of this more friendly environment you can then take with you what you have learned and begin fitting them into the grand picture. You can step out in love in this same way with all of your brothers and sisters and it is an opportunity for them to begin adding their pieces and becoming part of the greater reality.
Indeed, as my brother Aaron shared with you, it is the unifying of the Supreme when all have shared their individuality and recognize that it has supreme value in the whole. Your relationship with God is unique to you. We each have our own personal friendship and relationship with our universal Father. No two of us in all of the vast universes has the same relationship and yet with the insight and wisdom that you acquire along your journey you recognize at some point that you are an extremely valuable component part of the infinite picture of our Father. You are of equal importance to any other. There are no small pieces to the puzzle. There are no insignificant pieces to the puzzle. All are of supreme and ultimate value, and it is a pleasure for those of us who watch and observe you to see how you will put those beautiful pieces into place. We do, indeed, have a slightly larger perspective than you are able to have, still being limited to material form, but remember, we, too, were there. We can see all of the pieces that you have brought with you and we may know where we think they should be placed, but often times you surprise us and we are delighted to see how it is that you come up with such unique beauty in your presentations.
I would retire at this point and sit back and enjoy your questions to Aaron. Thank you. (T/R: Daniel Megow)
AARON: This is Aaron, once again. I would like to open up to your questions or comments this evening. I would speak for a moment about our respective groups, so as to offer insight that we do not observe any formal means of communicating with our students. We can be humorous, serious, deep, light, responsive to your needs at the level of connection, whatever is required in the moment. So feel free to loosen up and engage the process to the extent that you feel comfortable sharing this evening. I am open.
Q I have a question about potential and finding your highest potential, or the manifestation of one’s highest potential. I would be interested in hearing what you have to say about this. Thanks.
A Simply the willingness to do the Father’s will, will manifest your highest potential. The method to gain that knowledge is the stillness, in worship time, seeking directly to the Father in communion. There are no requirements that we could put forth to guide one in manifesting the particulars, but this process of consistent connection with your Indweller will begin to open you up inside to recognize who you are, where you can achieve, where you may perceive weaknesses that may need adjustment. By taking these issues into your stillness and placing them there at the foot of the Almighty, you allow the cleansing process, the slow and gradual healing and the turning of your intent toward the highest source.
The healing that flows from that connection will begin to manifest and you will begin to notice the higher possibilities of achievement for yourself. You will begin to become a bigger risk taker, so to speak, someone who will try new things, who will test the waters to find if a particular path has some meaning or merit or worth for you. It no longer is a fear of being wrong in life, but instead a willingness to be wrong in the knowledge that what you are seeking for is right. By doing this you will open into the universal possibilities and potential. I hope this has offered you some insight tonight, my friend.
Q Yes it has, thank you.
A You are welcome.
Q2 I believe you spoke tonight about the idea of not surrendering just to keep the peace. I’ve been struggling because I’ve been one of those who has kept myself in a shell, partly to keep the peace.
A You are not alone. (Group Laughter)
Q2 I guess my question is twofold. One is, I’ve done some reading that tells me that women on this planet have, in general, surrendered their voices to keep quiet and that men have been somewhat disconnected from feminine energy. First, is that true? But then, on a personal level, how do I overcome that? Do you have suggestions on overcoming that? I don’t want to continue to surrender my individuality, if that’s what I’m doing. I want to keep my individuality, but I also want to keep the peace, so how do I learn to speak out?
A Yes, to some degree there is some relevancy to your initial question, that there is a disconnect in the way that women and men have interacted in society, obviously due to some of the evolutionary processes that have gone uncorrected due to rebellion and default and lack of proper role models as most planets would have. The root causes are a little more difficult to understand. It’s not merely that men assumed control and women were pushed down. The societal progression has perpetuated this disparity in expression and the lack of balance between the emotional and the rational side of human beings. The general statement, that is often made, that men are one way and women are another way does not really fit, because there are many of both sexes who display characteristics often attributed to one or the other.
So it is a societal problem, which we aim to correct over a long period of time with an institution of insight that can slowly, on a generational level, adjust the perspectives of human beings to recognize the value of the balance. Many can see now the pioneering attempts of people to achieve this balance, more than previously. There will be greater strides in the future.
Regarding your own voice, my friend, and speaking out, it really comes from that same advice or insight I offered to our other friend here tonight, this manifesting of potential. This weekend I have witnessed your expression and your stepping out unsurely to offer your service for your friends here, where the space might be a little more comfortable. I applaud you for your efforts to be of service and would ask you to, in your stillness and seeking, recognize the positive nature and response to your stepping out. Your service was accepted and greeted with gratitude. As you recognize your efforts here getting this response, it can embolden you to recognize that by seeking the higher truth, by going into the stillness daily, for ten to twenty minutes even, you will clarify your thoughts and be able to see the opportunities for service rise and you will know when you should speak out and use your voice and when you can observe. I believe that by taking these steps there is no direction to go but up. There is no failure when you attach yourself to the service of the Father in Heaven and then seek to manifest what that guidance has given you. Is this answering what you asked?
Q2 Thank you. I guess I didn’t realize I was asking the question in that way. Does this apply in a similar way with relationships?
A Your sincerity will make a difference. And yet we can never have control over the other people. We cannot make them respond the way you would have them respond. But what you do have control over is your own decision process and by taking it within to the spirit inside you, it will clarify for you.
Q2 Thank you.
A Thank you for sharing.
Q3 I have a question. You opened by saying that being in groups such as this emphasize the desirability of living or being in a community. Did I hear that right? And then the second half of this is, if I heard that right, that it involves whole new things, to think of establishing a community, selling goods, who does what job, it seems it’s a process that’s going to take some time to plan, establish, and manifest. I’m wondering if there’s any sense of urgency that we be about this?
A What I was intending to communicate this evening was the value in your developing a sense of community, this feeling of belonging to something greater than one’s individual path, this sense of belonging to a cosmic family of God where every personality belongs, rather than talking about the establishment of particular communities, which have degrees of value depending upon the intentions and efforts of those participating, and the wisdom of those who would manifest such an endeavor. Does this clarify what I was intending to communicate with the lesson?
Q3 Very well. It puts the rest in perspective for me. Thank you.
AARON: Daniel, my friend, would you be willing to be open for our other Daniel this evening?
Daniel: Why not? (Pause)
TEACHER DANIEL: This is Daniel … “the other one”. I, too, enjoy coming together with diverse spirits such as you all bring with you. As a part of the Northwestern teaching groups we each have a unique focus to our weekly lessons. They are evolved for the individual groups that we are assigned with, and yet we commune with one another, share our lessons and insights with one another, and though the individuals in the different groups are diverse, we find that our teaching always has opportunity to coincide. In truth, it is because our message is one of love and acceptance, one of growth, change, one of getting to know better our Universal Father, and of growing in personal relationships with one another.
We observe that all throughout this mission of our Sovereign Son Michael that the hunger for loving understanding among our classes of students is universal, and as we all sit in session with one another discussing our particular assignments, we, just like yourselves, gain a much greater insight into how we may the better prepare our lessons and, indeed, ourselves to more closely align with the Father’s will in presenting them. We realize that our lessons reach far beyond our immediate groups because they are sent out freely to a much larger audience of the TeaM, and so while we tailor our teachings for our individual groups, it is gratifying to see that the Father makes use of them in a far larger arena. We have begun to grow used to this because we are cognizant of so very many examples of the truth of it, and we would have you begin to realize that as you prepare yourselves for your individual lessons and relationships and outreaches, that you are touching far more people than you may be initially intending to. All that you do in love for the Father and in love for your siblings, in the cause of the greater goodness, reaches into the universe to touch beings even far beyond this little world. All that you do in goodness and love becomes a part of our Supreme Parent and becomes available to the ends of the grand universe as a manifestation of the Supreme.
Truly this is why each choice for goodness and each choice for seeking the will of our Divine Father has such incredible value. No good act goes unnoticed. Perhaps often it may seem this is so in this world of confusion, and yet be you assured that no act of love is ever wasted. Always does it serve the will of our Father and the cohesion of the brotherhood and sisterhood of all of his diverse children. Goodnight. Thank you for your attendance and thank you for all the love that each one of you truly are. (T/R: Daniel Megow)
KLARIXISKA: This is Klarixiska. A procedure we utilize in our group is to stand, hold hands, and pray to conclude our sessions. Can we do this now? (Pause as group stands and holds hands.)
Dear Father, we are here for you as your children. We seek to know your will and to manifest that in our lives. Help us to see your light in the opportunities we are given each day. Give us the courage to follow. Enhance our understanding of your will, and give us the strength such that we can go forth joyfully spreading the good news. Amen.
(After adjusting the microphone, the chairs, etc., somebody in the audience struck a gentle gong, which pulled us immediately into focus.)
Well, let us get to know each other better. We have an hour to go. We have a tremendous array of associates in rapt attention to, I must say, not only your group but to the others, which are equally enthralling, as a theater in which we are delighting to attend. I might say, too, you in some regards represent to our minds’ eye a three-ring circus! (Group laughter) And you are highly amusing (Further giggles) as you are also treasured.
My human associate, Tiahuan, has also transmitted me, and we have been effective on many occasions. I would suggest we add a bit of dimension to our gathering today, for I suggest I will join Tiahuan to transmit and allow a guest to visit with you through Gerdean, and thus we will expand our program. I cannot do that, however, without your full willingness and, certainly, the cooperation of Mr. [Rob] Davis.
Tiahuan: As you know, Tomas, I will voice no objection with this suggestion for I love you and I understand your devotion to your work and I am honored that you choose to use me in service in this way. I treasure the opportunity to work with you.
TOMAS: What a priceless child you are to me, my son. Have you any doubt, any of you, how our love can grow, even between worlds? Truly we are citizens of the universe. What we must do then is adjust the amplifier, for I am accustomed to projecting through this equipment and your modulation is set much lower. I will need to speak more intimately when I speak through you.
Just so you know, I am gracious with my friend, Gerdean. We have always had a very cordial arrangement. When I work with her, which she appreciates fully, I tell her what I am going to do and then she has no surprises nor does anyone else. And since I often play the host, I will gladly play according to her wishes. I am going to transfer to Tiahuan and stay with him, then, throughout the rest of the hour while Gerdean remains open to be available to other entities who may like to come forward from the audience in the invisible realm and meet your needs. I am again glad to be in your midst. I hope you appreciate this very calibrated agenda. It is for the opportunity to be on the Program, and I am grateful.
TOMAS: (T/R 2) My friends, again, it is important in our lives together, in these expanding circumstances, to learn to follow the direction set in motion by following the leading of God, for He began an eternity of sharing a limitless love with everyone He meets, and such love is compelling. The invitation, over time, is to help to magnify this love in each of you, in all matters, in your own efforts, and within limitations such as are found in the material creatures of His creation.
This Teaching Mission is not a crusade. Yet it is a campaign. It is a campaign to win every heart and every mind. Not only to win every living being throughout this sector of Nebadon, but all who have suffered, as you have suffered, this hole in your heart, wondering where this missing piece is. Missing not by any choice of yours, but by the circumstances of time, for which all conspire to elevate the amplitude of these waves of affection. And so we ask you to pay attention to lessons of divinity attainment in most infinitesimal beings over time and space which Our Father gives us to gather you and your fellows into His arms and into the arms of each other. Love is the greatest reality in all the universe
It is not a cause won by the use of swords or even words, so quickly are they exchanged one for the other – all to do battle, rather than to make peace. Your thoughts, your words, your actions spring from the choice. All flow in the presence of I Am / We Are. It is Our Father’s will for you. Here again all of this, where we are in the end of our striving, is in this very peaceful place. Throughout your journeys, your adventures On High, this constancy of magnifying the joy, the love we will share together, you will so spawn. How might we use the sounds, the circuits at this moment? Would they distract you? These are opportunities to receive a greater range of affection. Can you dwell in this place at all? This eternal moment? Realize the Stillness and yet walk on the earth? Showering your fellows with love you have felt poured upon you?
Your challenge is not to build physical structures, though these have their place. Your challenge is not to produce manuscripts to allow your lives to be translated. Your lives compose the archives of Nebadon. It is from these we draw our lessons. This soul we share in company, this soul of supremacy. Our friend, our Father/our Brother Michael, shows all, all this, to the Supreme as a Sovereign Creator Son. Each of you have your own sovereignties to attain. Every day of your lives, as by each of his life incarnations, you are earning your soul. We assist you, as we are part of you. And how happy we are to share this love! In this moment of history, we are making the effort. The records of your world may not reflect this change for some time. But you see it. You feel it. You know it. In the depth of your being. Share it like this In any heart that seems suited. Invite us to participate with your struggles. Share with us.
I will give this one a rest. Let us proceed.
SERAPHIM: Good evening. I am a seraphim. I’m not familiar with this T/R and she is not familiar with me, nor does she know what I’m doing here. This makes her nervous. You can imagine how that feels. I am here to greet you and visit with you. I am going to be alternate to Tomas’s hosting. I would like to hear from you. I would like to hear your needs, your thoughts, your concerns, your opinions, your beliefs, your feelings. Who are you? Oh, yes, I recognize some of you, but I haven’t heard from you all in a long time. How good it is to see you! You know, we don’t get to see you up close like this very often. We see you from afar, through a veil, as it were, and when we have opportunity to come in and BE with you, it is like seeing you from a new perspective, a preferred perspective, but only for the occasion. You have questions?
1st Student: Is this your first visit to Urantia?
SERAPHIM: No. I’ve been around a little bit. I’ve made appearances here and there. I’ve spent some time with the ministers of healing. Indeed, I have spent time with the Life Carriers active here.
1st Student: How do you wish to be helpful to us?
SERAPHIM: I am a minister. I am also a minister among ministers, and I have access to them; therefore, if you have need of ministry, I have the power, the ability, the privilege, the opportunity … I can turn around and ask my fellows who “specialize” in the field if they would like to respond.
2nd Student: Could you tell me if the Angels of Progress have recently received a change in their orders?
SERAPHIM: As of what date?
2nd Student: The year 2000.
SERAPHIM: I can tell you, yes, they have received new orders, but they are getting new orders all the time. They have a very busy division. The Progressives have very little down time. They work closely, in fact, with the midwayers who are very busy. Being nearer to you and denser, they scurry about speedily taking care of business. But this is necessary. This is an energy pattern. Think in terms of the Niagara Falls. Suggest to your astral body that you are a part of the integral chemistry of the region here, of that which is creating the power that provides goods and services to so many people: the water; the machinery that processes the power; the gears that must mesh to move the wheels. This is progress. It cannot stop. It gets many updates. But you who are active in your realm understand this is the nature of progress: if the gears stop, the machine does not work. This is different from other areas of energy application. Some are static. Some are fluid. Progress is progressive. They don’t need one course per year; they have 250 short-term seminars. Why? Why do you ask?
2nd Student: [Indistinguishable, something about a dispensational change, that we must change directions] Is this true?
SERAPHIM: I need to ask you many questions. Your question is not adequately encapsulated to offer me an opportunity to focus on your needs. You must tell me more.
2nd Student: [Again, indistinguishable.]
SERAPHIM: Yes they are. They are in favor of that, for they see the good it can do. They see they will not be left behind. They will not be overlooked. They will not be pushed aside. But that was not so at first. The times have changed and, therefore, the mind adapts to the needs of the day and they are like the gears of progress, ever onwardly pressing … albeit, some fields more slowly. The idea, too, of a dispensation as an event is over-dramatized in your minds. Because of your tendency toward short-term thinking (based on the fact you have only recently begun to acknowledge you are standing as universe citizens), your habitual perspective is short term. You will eventually and gradually expand that view and, of course, that will be marvelous because it will then offer you more opportunity for new adventure, which you love! But it, too, will give rise to more questions, more answers, and more mastery of the mechanical universe.
Dispensations ending and beginning is not like your Gregorian calendar, but rather is like an age, an era, an actuum, but there are very few projects in the universe which are undertaken to be done quickly. Again, think of the size of the universe and the lumbering machinery required to process the power of Paradise into infinity. The gears enmeshed infinitum cannot be stopped on a dime!
In your teachings you have heard it said that the Master was called forth from his remains, lifted up, whereupon he took care of business for a number of eternities before resuming the drama of the tomb. In your eyes, you would not have noticed his absence, but in the eyes of the eternal perspective, it was adequate time to administer to all these affairs of the universe which had been pending in his absence, including the inauguration of a dispensational roll call. And since we saw that happen in [snaps fingers] such a split second of your consciousness, you assume that a dispensational roll call or changeover is likewise accountable on your clock, but your clock is not big enough to count the time that attends on the greater universe. Your perception is only good for your existence here. And it’s a terribly temporary point of view.
But you are right to wonder and speculate about the universe changes that are certainly on-going, and of which you are an integral part. It is only natural that awakened citizens should opt to look around and see where they are in terms of eternity and, wiping the dust from their shoes, take up their bag and walk on into the rest of eternity as Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer might have walked off to go fishing.
You are embarked on the adventure of a lifetime. An eternal lifetime. And you mark eternity by the way your perceive it. Give yourself a lot of time. Give yourself time to be children.
3rd Student: Do you think the celestials see humankind here on this planet evolved enough to make use of the … systems of some kind … extra terrestrials that have shown an interest in availing themselves to us … giving us a new incentive to … ?
SERAPHIM: Once again I find your question compounded, which gives me a broad range of response.
3rd Student: I guess what I really want to know is, I have heard the extra-terrestrials from far distant planets, have they given up on us? Or are they going to stay around, even though we are at war now, and are doing some pretty crazy things?
SERAPHIM: One moment. War will not be a deterrent, as long as they remain beyond range of earth warriors. All of your cosmic neighbors and other terrestrial cousins in those worlds that are able to be aware of intergalactic association, are aware of your condition as a world which has been in quarantine. And one thing you might realize is that in the more advanced stages of development, all the evolving worlds of Nebadon find mercy irresistible. It is your good fortune that this is the case! But there is a new administration – office if you will – established now, to curb the zeal of those neighbors who are volunteering to come over and help the new kids on the block straighten out their difficulty. These new kids on the block are sickly little waits, at that, and so there are barricades up to keep the universe from smothering you with their attention (appreciative chortles) They are not permitted -- at this point, at least – to interfere.
Indeed. Your orb is very much a work of art. A great treasure. We have what you would consider reams of material in the archives about your orb. You can imagine … how about the Taj Mahal? … how important it is to your world culture. A palace in honor of his wife. Exquisite beyond compare. Compare that to our Master Son, our Creator. Exquisite beyond compare is his birthplace. “Sentimental shrine.”
Don’t you know those ladies who put their cradle in the attic, the one in which they rocked their firstborn? They are not about to let it warp on the back porch and get thrown into the fire or the trash. They have blood, sweat and tears wrapped up in that monument to a meaningful event. You can understand that. Well, have I run out of time?
4th Student: I have a question.
SERAPHIM: I would love to hear your question, Daughter.
4th Student: This is kind of maybe a stupid question, but there’s been somebody in my house ever since my husband died, and I’ve never been there by myself and I would like to know who it is. If they can…
SERAPHIM: I will ask you a couple of questions so that I understand your concern fully.
4th Student: Okay.
SERAPHIM: You have a house which you once lived in that you visit? And when you visit that house there is a spirit within? Is that the case?
4th Student: It’s the house that my husband built. And I enjoy it. It’s a lovely house. But I have never been by myself. I can feel the spirits of people there. And I wonder who it is. If there is any way of finding out.
SERAPHIM: They are eddies of energy embedded in the architecture of the time the place came into being. They are memories of persons and moments captured for eternity. Pictures of the Supreme posted on the hallowed walls of that edifice of love, of youth, of hope, of ideals, of faith. Of course, of sorrow, of loss, of fear, of want. But those are realities that have come into being because of your association there. You have made it a sacred place. You have given it life. And when you return, you hear the echo of the voice of your own mind embedded in the walls. This must endear you to the place. Why are you not there?
4th Student: Because I’m at this meeting.
SERAPHIM: Of course. And you have good company.
4th Student: How come I got the message that the midwayers were supposed to be honored here at this meeting? Three days before I came. So I made it on my T-shirt that there was a midwayer there. I’m sure.
SERAPHIM: I’m sure. We have several here right now. One is helping me with this communication, in fact. I have them under foot all the time! (Group laughter)
5th Student: Is there any teacher available who would like to talk a little bit more about the Magisterial Son’s arrival? Any special words for us in this regard?
SERAPHIM: Inasmuch as this is beyond my authority as a seraphim, I will return the podium to our host, Tomas, and he can direct the question if he chooses.
TOMAS: My dear friend, the Son has visited me, is visiting at this moment, is a part of the assembled throng, with excitement mirroring your own. Timing is always a matter of degree. The increments of time with which you measure propriety is small, yet, I would encourage you and others to recognize you are now part of his labor. Do not wait to begin. He will assist you as you invite him. He asks those who he has visited to speak of his presence, to listen to him, to listen for him, that he learns from you, even as you will be learning much from him.
This is Tomas. I am happy to be a part of this effort in a while. In the meantime, he will speak. Many of you can hear him. All of you work even now. Set your minds at ease. The labor has begun. Very well. Are there other questions?
6th Student: Yes, I have a question on healing. I just want to know how we, being on this planet can experience a healing process from our past, growing from a child to an adult and healing through that process. We are told now to go back to visit that to understand how it got attached to us and how we heal that so we can be in the present, able to share, and I would like to understand that process more.
TOMAS: Many could answer this for you. Perhaps others will join me.
7th Student: I’d like to ask a question. Does the individual who asked the question have some teacher that is already … on board to assist him?
JESSONA: I am Jessona. I can talk to you about healing. You are talking about correcting within those areas which are twisted and blocked because of the necessity to react in order to survive in an uncaring world – at least in those situations which were less than perfect, which, while lived, were imperfect and which now you would about face and iron the wrinkle, releasing the soul to advance in a healed condition.
Become as a child. Become as a little child. First. Allow your child to be. Talk to your child. Be there for your child. Let your child take the lead in the relationship. The wounded child. The lost child. The child is going to be angry with you. The child is going to be disappointed with you. You are going to love this child very deeply before you are finished because you will have apologized to it, through no fault of your own but because it is a child, and because no one did it for you when you were there. And you ask God if you could repair the rift by healing the wound and He is assisting in this healing … but you no longer loathe yourself, nor your fellows who put you in this position, even God, for you have seen the end from the beginning. You have now seen the Alpha and the Omega. You have seen the life therein. You have seen the Father as a result. This is the healing process. This is the radiance of sonship that you have been missing. This is the boulder that has rested over you, crushing you. And you have risen up through the spirit and thrown it off. because you have been called forth, like Lazarus, from the grave.
You have been elevated into knowing who you are now. Having mercy. Having compassion. Having gained wisdom. Having forgiven. Having laughed! Having wept. Having loved. Having healed. Having slept. By and through the process of becoming a child. And so you – by and through being a child – begin to become the adult that you long to be, that you have always wanted to be, that they always said you could be. And more.
It is wonderful that no matter what you may have imagined it would be like to be “healed” -- the unimaginably wonderful and lovely -- it was nothing like what it was when it finally really happened. And it didn’t happen quickly. God’s light may wash over you like a floodlight. Washing out the reality of everything around you but Itself. But it was not quickly. It was done slowly and laboriously as you worked through the layers of feeling that render you blameless and effective. You will see this happen now. Not only in others. But in groups of others. In nations of others. It will happen to the world. The world will go through the same Correcting procedure, and Urantia will be born again. Into the light. Into Light and Life.
Yes, this is important work, healing. “Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.” “Let me be an instrument of Thy peace. Where there is discord, let me bring harmony. Where there is darkness, let me bring light.” This is our song. This is our battle cry. Rejoice and be glad. Your teacher will go with you. Mother Nebadonia will comfort you. Father will lead you. Allow it to unfold naturally and as it should. You don’t have to push yourself to grow up too fast. Take your time. Savor your healing process. Nurture your wounds. Try out the new muscle that emerges from the healing process. Walk on it. Run with it. Become strong. But enjoy the process. Enjoy the grieving. Enjoy the sorrow. Enjoy the loss. Appreciate where the guilt comes from. Understand that about yourself. About humanity. And let it go.
You have such a rich inheritance. If you only knew how rich you are. I will tell it to you this way, and then I will depart. You are a candy bar, you see? You have marshmallows, caramel, nuts, chocolate and glitter all at once. And you are nutritious, to boot. You are so rich. Your lives are so filled with potential that only you can attain by reaching out for that gift, that talent, that allotment, that bestowal which is yours and yours alone. Thank you for your inquiry, your encouragement, your gracious hospitality. And thank you, Tomas.
TOMAS: It is my pleasure. We shall continue at another time.
SMALL GROUP SESSION (3 of 3)
TEACHER BOB: Good evening, this is Bob. I am privileged to be here. It’s an honor. I am a new teacher. I’ve been in training a good deal of time. I was asked to be here today to present this lesson. It is a duplication of one I gave a few weeks ago in Colorado. I was graded on it, and my reward for its product was to be asked to provide this lesson tonight for you. So it is a privilege to be here. This lesson deals with the stillness and consciousness, in greeting the One, the Father Fragment within us. This is for myself, as well as you.
In the stillness we have cast away our tether to the material world. You cannot dissolve the sounds that come to you from the outside. You may pay attention to them, but in the stillness you would not think about them, give them value, or address them with a judgement. Simply hear them and let them pass through your mind. Your eyes are closed, but in your vision screen there is a blank. Often times in your vision screen in your imagination you see your daily work, children, friends, family, agendas, meeting with people, you see yourself in various situations. But here in the stillness all that is put away and you say to yourself I am still.
For purposes of this lesson I ask you now to examine your intentions for being here tonight at this lesson. State to yourself what your intention is for being here. Next, examine your sincerity. Is it a superfluous activity? Are you here for superficial reasons? Or are you here earnestly, deeply, sincerely, to learn. These two factors provide the qualitative and quanti-tative dimensions of your stillness. We have been taught that when we begin the stillness that we make a declaration for our intention. Institu-tions call this an invocation. You invoke the presence of an authority, a power, and you are there to engage that. You have read, “Be still and know that I am God,” and go to your closet and be still. There in the stillness you will meet your Father Fragment.
Continuing our meditative exercise, you have cast aside the moorings of the material plane and you are your own consciousness. Yes, you can feel the chair underneath you, and your hands together or apart on your lap, but as you withdraw from those planes, you come within, and soon you are floating without a tether to your body. You are entering the state of consciousness. You are aware of yourself being aware of yourself. You’ve come to that space in your consciousness that is as though you are in a closet without walls, ceiling, floor, or light, as large as a house, or an auditorium, or stadium, as though this closet were the size of the Grand Canyon, or the size of a world. These walls of consciousness are infinite. This is the place or position where you come face to face, consciousness to consciousness, with the Father within.
Many of you have practiced this many hundreds, perhaps thousands of times. How many times have you gone to this space, this consciousness, and felt no one there? How many times have you gone to this space of your consciousness and realized as you probed this space of conscious-ness within your mind that you are not alone? With practice you will go to this space and realize, know, feel a presence there with you. It is not Bob, nor Rayson, but it will be your Thought-Adjuster, your Father Fragment, Christ Michael and Nebadonia.
When this occurs to you for the first time, you may ask, “Am I alone?” Having already felt the presence of someone or something within you, then, the words will return, “No, you are never alone.” You ask again, “Who is here?” and the reply is invariably, “I AM. I AM here.” And slowly, perhaps suddenly, the rush of awakening awareness washes over you and you realize that you are in the presence of the Creator. It is the “I AM that I AM,” the never-failing, eternal , enduring presence within you. Let us take a few moments now to exercise, to feel this presence. (A few minutes pause.)
This is Bob. You begin to awaken to the realization that you have the capability, the capacity, to enter this state of consciousness, and at almost anytime during your daily life, any moment where you can possibly be still. Say you’re walking along a sidewalk, come to a curb, and the stoplight says to stop. You close your eyes momentarily and you become aware of your self and you become aware that you are not alone. It is not the hundreds of people around you, but that one or two beings who are with you in the stillness of your consciousness. The light changes and you move on. This can occur many times during the day, with a brief respite at your desk, a time where you walk down the hall and look out a window, a time to refresh yourself. We are also taught that when we do this we may provide an invitation for the resolution of some issue through guidance, either immediately at the time or through a later situation. An insight might come to you later, when you most need it.
This is practicing the presence/practicing the stillness anytime anywhere in your life. Once you have achieved this skill, it will be with you for your life. And yes, many of you do not hear your Father speak to you, but most of you do feel the Father’s presence. This state of conscious-ness provides you with that still moment where you two meet and you are open to all the universe’s wisdom and guidance. And when that occurs, as it will occur frequently, be open to much good to come into your life.
This is Bob and I am ready to shift the focus of our discussion. Let me tell you a bit about my introduction to Colorado, which is a small micro-cosm of this planet. As you know, most of us volunteer for several options, for several openings. The Denver locale was one of them. I was grateful to receive this assignment. I have been at this post for many months. My supervising teacher, if I can use that term loosely, is Rayson, and I am very glad to be under his guidance. You would think that a huge metropolitan area as this would have many teachers. Several million people live there and yes, there are many teachers there, but they have yet to coordinate the efforts of the mortals, but this is going on.
As I said, the lesson tonight was a gift, so to speak, to me, and it is truly just a summary of what I gave several weeks ago. We have time for questions, if you wish. (Pause) Oh come now, I’ve been with you throughout these days and I know you are not bashful.
Q Bob, there’s been talk that the Trinity originates the patterns used throughout the grand universe. What teaching patterns have been instilled by your supervisor, or cohorts?
A End of question?
A Not to embarrass myself, I hope, but it is to keep it simple and repeat it, basic fundamental teaching techniques for humans with humans. We have much to teach, but the principles are simple. The principles involve cooperation, coordination. We do not even strive yet to teach you to love your enemies, but to begin to work among your-selves in those places of differences, where you can make progress that is visible. The principle is that you live on a very complex world with complex relationships, ancient, dissonant, feelings among your tribes, and the larger patterns of peace and cooperation are being developed by those who are working within the Correcting Time, as we know that your world is incapable of doing so now. So our teaching is to individuals and to groups, to teach healthier relationships, the primary of which is the relationship with God within you, and the recognition that you are not alone, the awareness that you have a plan, that there is a plan for your life, that your world is not abandoned or without hope. Neither are you alone as an individual and neither are you alone as a planet. Yes, there are patterns. At my level and at yours it is always very simple. Teach the simple lessons, teach the simple principles.
We are very pleased and grateful for not only the camaraderie that you feel among yourselves at conferences such as this, but for the sense of community, a feeling and awareness of oneness, that you truly are one people with one God. And yes, we acknowledge that you do speak of divisions at your dinner tables and in conversation, but the glow and the light that comes from you among yourselves, with your fellows and sisters, is wonderful. I come from a very coordinated world, so I am quite amazed at the progress that is being made on your planet and I feel privileged to be a part of that. Another question?
Q Thank you Bob.
A You’re welcome.
Q2 I have a technical question regarding the Celestial Overseers, and wonder if the Teaching Mission or Correcting Time is in any way involved with them?
A Yes. That is a short and blunt question and a short and blunt answer. I apologize for the brevity of my answer. I have not completed all the schools of the mansion worlds, but volunteered early when I qualified. I assure you that distant, seeming administratively distant bodies and individuals may not seem directly related to the Correcting Time, but all are contributing to the welfare of all the planets that were in quarantine.
Q2 Thank you.
A You’re welcome.
Q3 Bob, I was wondering, are there any planets in Nebadon, which are now in light and life?
Q3 Could you tell us how many? More than one?
A Yes, more than one. I am not aware of the answer myself, but I do know that there are planets in light and life.
Q3 That’s encouraging.
Q4 Bob, I have a question about some statements made by Machiventa in your group not long ago, encouraging us to create centers of worship of some sort or projects of that kind as a means of outreach. Do you have commentary for those interested in that prospect?
A Yes, most definitely. This is part of my basic training to be a part of a vision for an opening community, as the metropolitan area where I work. The centers of worship would look and operate quite differently from the solemn edifices that you have seen and where you have worshiped in times past. Centers of worship can be without a building. It may be that a group of you and your friends would like to meet on an ocean beach or cliff overlooking an ocean, near a lake, on the side of the mountain, in an open field of wheat. The worship begins first within the individual and continues in association with those who wish to join this presence and to participate in the acknowledgement of the divine which is so near them. You may call it a celebration, an ecstatic awareness of the presence that is so close to each of you. The worship may be in a community hall of a retirement center. You will find among the elderly those who are still competent in thought, those who are so aware of the nearness of their passing. And some are hopeless and some are filled with hope. Worship would be a powerful opportunity to bring various religions or a religious individuals together into an awareness of the oneness that abides within them, around them, their Creator. We are not instructed to show you how to sing or have ritual, but we are instructed in how to assist you individually and in groups to come to the palpable awareness that you are living in holy ground and that more sacredly holy ground resides within each of you. Then worship becomes not an obligation, but a tremendous opportunity for excitement, oneness, within that presence. Thank you.
Q5 Bob, for several years our planet has been gifted with a phenomenon of visual patterns placed around the planet, in pastures, on sand, and in snowfields, the phenomenon of crop circles. What can you say about the purpose of this phenomenon?
A The source is benign. The purpose is to awaken awareness that you live in a larger universe. This is a very simple answer, I know. But that is among the purposes for their existence. There is however, within those designs much wisdom, much knowledge, if you discern the difference. We are not privileged to reveal much about these phenomena. I know this does not answer your questions, but perhaps only whets it. I would appreciate your patience with that please.
Q5 It’s so nice to hear that they’re benign.
Q6 Bob, what can you tell us about the Magisterial Son and the talk of his physical manifestation and the Melchizedeks?
A I am privileged to reveal this to you, that yes, there are plans, have been plans developing for a good long time for the presence and arrival of one of these sons. Where and when is unknown to all but a very few in Nebadon. It is not a secret, but information that is released or provided on a need to know basis. As this involves the lineage of sons, these decisions are made very high in the administration of this local universe. Yes, there is a son coming to this planet. It will arrive at a time which is significant, timely, and appropriate. You may say, “My gosh, he should arrive today then.” Perhaps so. Will he arrive in your lifetime. I do not know. I know that Michael will provide this as the time and events require.
Q6 Have you met him?
A No, I have not met him.
Q6 But is he present in spirit on the planet?
A I am not privileged to know that. I thank you for your time. This might seem a bit tedious to you, a new teacher presenting this material to you. However, I’m glad that you have borne through this. Thank you for your patience. I appreciate being here. I look forward to many decades and centuries of service with you and your children. Goodbye.
NIGHT SESSION, 7/11/03
Opens with Bill Bryan Poem
Children of the human race
Offspring of your Mother Earth
Not alone in endless space
Has your planet given birth
Far across the cosmic skies
Countless suns of glory blaze
And from untold planets rise
Endless canticles of praise
Should some word of others reach
This lonely planet Earth
Differences of form and speech
Must not hide our common worth
When at last your souls are free
And the clouds of fear disperse
Then at last you’ll learn to be
Children of the Universe
MALVANTRA MELCHIZEDEK: Valiant travelers on your ascension scheme, being washed by the vibrations of your creative musical endeavors, feeling the pleasure as your internal being vibrates with the joys of your brethren’s song, so too does your divine essence titillate with the exquisite divine vibrations emanating through the Source Center of your central Being. You are connected in the most luxurious fashion with the endless Source of all creative energy. You rest in the heartland of the majestic Trinity who outpours in the most unified fashion waves of eternal love. When you gather for worship, your concerted and social grouping exemplifies the purpose of sharing in unison the beautiful unfolding of your gratitude in a welcoming fashion for the gifts bestowed instantly, constantly, forever.
The bridge of size is but a passage through the gateway of the immortal portal and entrance into a dimension that will fill you with awe, captivate your imagination and sustain and nurture with divine nutrients: the essence of all being, the ambrosia of living existence, the soma of infinite life. Your song vibrates as a reward for the honor that’s due your grouping as a result of the loyalty and your fidelity to your Sovereign who recognizes and acknowledges his children of light.
Let the rule of Michael commanding your mission be remembered through the age of the Supreme beyond the confines of your universe with a purposeful reputation as agondonters to impress and forever shatter a reputation that the Urantians are a weak race. Let the blood run strong and let your faith be fired and sparkle as you galvanize and proceed with your precious mission. (T/R: Stephen Mark)
TEACHER ABRAHAM: I am Abraham. Greetings, dear ones. I embrace you. I am weeping in joy and awe for you. In your lives today a new well has been drilled and this well of living water envelops your thirsting and quenches many longings you have had. The lessons you’ve taken in these past few days will bubble and rise within you, that you will desire to share with everyone, with others in your path. Is it not a beautiful day, my dear ones? You rise so high in this well of love, sharing this love with others without consciousness of its effect so far out to so many. Do you know how deeply loved you really are? I know you better than you know. My staff and I salute you and congratulate you all for your beautiful and truthful connections today. I leave you to another and send you my greetings. Shalom. (T/R: Mark Greer)
ARTISAN ELISHA: I don’t know about you folks, but your artisans are having great fun here. Actually we see that you are, too. We are overjoyed with you. We are working on a song for you. Can we work on it together?
These hills of New York are green with peace
And the truth bells everywhere ringing
And as I look into each loving face
How can I keep from singing?
In this renewal center we focus our lives
Spiritual wisdom we all are bringing
And in this place of joyous love
We have not kept from singing.
We love you all and share your quest
On the celestial side they’re singing
In joyous rhyming rhythmic ways
True love we all are bringing…
… and sharing and giving and feeling the holy spirit that lives within us, and feeling an extra measure this night of the new things that Michael brought to Urantia -- amazing new concepts in a cruel land -- of mercy, peace, forgiveness, compassion, and caring, each man and woman melded together in a mystery that became a ministry that swept throughout the universe of Nebadon. You are not alone in sharing the great news of this world’s resurrection into the light. These green hills and living waters remind us daily that God is reigning and as His waters wash us free and clean, how can we keep from singing? Peace to all of you, and joy, and love. Good night. (T/R: Jim Cleveland)
MOST HIGHS: We are an amalgam of the Most Highs, come to greet you in this place, this time of gathering. You have brought your energies together in this place of peace for a higher purpose. Of this, we rejoice. We applaud your efforts. We have joined our energies with yours to make this event a gathering of energies greater than the sum of your parts. The energy of this conference radiates outward, not only on your planet. You have little concept of the multitudes that surround you, watching, learning, rejoicing, joining in your efforts to raise this planet to light and life. It is true, no act of love goes unnoticed. We are, at times, in awe of how God’s power and love works between all of us. We, too, are learning from your experiences. Through you, many planets are experiencing growth. You grow together with them, though to you it is unseen. We work between you, among you, to lift you, to connect you. It is now possible for much more to happen on your plane than we thought possible a short time ago.
The Magisterial Son will be appearing in a short period of your time. You can prepare by returning to your groups, however small, however active or inactive. Any small act that is shared in the name of God with the intent of light, with the power of love, creates a ripple effect, of more than you are aware. Be at peace in what you do, where you are. Be at peace with the people in your life. Share with them your love. Share with them the feeling of light, the reality of light. Allow others to be in relationship with Christ, with the Magisterial Son, through you, through the way you live your lives. It needn’t be a huge and showy act. It only needs to be love between you and another.
This night, before you slumber, and any time during your activities of the day, whenever you can, remember your connection. Think of it. Reconnect as often as you can, until you feel the reality of constant connection, of constant prayer, of never-ending light in your life. Be aware of our presence and the many celestials who over light you. We are doing all we can to pour love into your hearts, to help you to change the reality, which you now see into a new and grander design -- the plan God has set before you. All is well. Beauty, truth, goodness. These are the design, the patterns imprinted on your souls. Seek to awaken these patterns within you. Seek to remember your connection to the higher realms and allow these energies to expand in your life.
Again, we wish to applaud this gathering, the energies that are being shared; hey will be carried with you when you depart and separate from this place. In reality you do not separate. Once connected, you are always connected. Good night, dear children. Good night. (T/R: Leoma Sparer)
SERAPHIM SOLONIA: Greetings, dear young ones. This is your sister Solonia. Truly you would be awestruck if you were able to visualize the numbers of my sisters, of teachers of all manners, of celestial personalities, who are here assisting in this wonderful gathering of souls. There have been no coincidences as of yet. We never put anything past our own notice.
We would like you to do an exercise tomorrow. Be aware of our seraphic ministry alongside of you during the day as you “by chance meet one another in the corridor, or outside, or in the elevator.” Recognize that we have been playing. This is our special music. It is part of our function as seraphim and as guardians. When there are two or three of you together know that there are thirty or forty together there. Try to keep this in the forefront of your consciousness tomorrow and experience, see where you end up and be aware of all of the contacts along the way.
I believe that with this awareness of our presence as you go about your days, you will the easier be able to return to your every day tasks, ministries, lives, knowing better in your heart that indeed we are there then, too, and there are many who are dedicated to the service of each and every one of you. Wait upon the Father’s time and all will unfold. Allow our work to be noticeable in your lives by your personal revelation of the Father’s love. The love he gives to you, give to all, and we will get the right people together at the right time. Everyone you may chance to meet, even in your everyday lives, we are there, we are a part of the contacts. It is why you have so many opportunities every single day to share our Father’s love, to share of yourself. In busy day lives it is very easy to overlook these things and we understand. It is the norm on this world indeed, and yet we go about our business and you do stop and talk to a person we have guided into your path whom, in fact, we have guided you both together. It could be anyone on the street. It need not be the brothers and sisters that you know and love.
Our Father works for the good of us all and we are all his willing servants. Those of us who have this supreme opportunity to work on this world of Urantia feel it is of the highest privilege, for nowhere else in the universe can we have these incredible difficult learning experiences. It is the greatest honor to be here among you all this evening. We very much love and care for you. You are like our little brothers and sisters, and though you may not be able to see it, to us you are truly adorable. I will part with you for now, realizing as is in our assignment for tomorrow. We are here among you and we are working with you for your highest good, with the guidance of your Father Fragments. Good night, dear ones. (T/R: Daniel Megow)
July 12, 2003
NEBADONIA: Good Morning, this is Nebadonia, Mother Spirit of Nebadon. It is wonderful to see and feel the reflection of my presence in your minds, for you all carry that eminence within you. Just as Father’s spirit, Christ Michael is with you, I am with you as well. I pervade the very spaces of this planet and this local universe.
You have come together during this brief few days to spend time in social grace together, communing with your Father Fragments within, appealing to the Christ Spirit around you and within you. There are periods of time of silence and stillness and then episodes of frenetic activity. You are so excited to be a part of the universe, to become a part of the expanding spirit, healing spirit of this planet. We encourage you. You call this love which you feel from us. It is parental support, nurturance, care, and compassion for your arduous journey. We are ever present around you, and my dear cohort Christ Michael is so ever-present around you. Your appeals for his presence, for his intervention, for his intimate participation in your life is immediate.
You are beginning a new era on this planet which has not ever existed before. The era of darkness and quarantine is past, and some of the generations sitting here know of the way you and your parents were treated. It was aloof. Though there was the ever-present watch care of my guardian ministers among you, you felt alone. We are so joyful, so feeling of oneness with you now that these barriers are lifted so we can reach out to you and touch your hearts, and I touch your mind. Not to become a part of you, but to become one with you in those areas where you want to accept my presence, Christ Michael’s presence, and the participation of his and my ministers among you and with you.
Our presence now is intimate and immediate. There are no causes, no issues, aside from selfish ones, which we will not participate in. We will participate in all efforts for your growth, for the assistance of others, for your children, for your aging parents, and those in need far away. Yes, we are also immediately there for all the well, all the healthy, all the eager, all the ones who want to know more, to expand truth even in material ways, that they might become aware that spirit is afoot on your planet and everywhere.
You have tales of elven infants, and small ones, those ethereal small spirit creatures. You have stories of those. Now you have the reality of spirits among you. You need not appeal to spirits of the land, but to spirits of the mind, and spirits of the heart, and of the Son and Father, and my spirits. We are with you. You need not cry out in pain and anguish seeking our assistance but simply sincerely in your consciousness, in that presence where you know you are with spirit, with Father, make your appeal. Your petitions and repetitions of petitions need not be made, but simply a true, deep, heartfelt, earnest and sincere appeal for assistance in areas you do not know how to solve. We are there.
You are seeing wonderful, miraculous, spontaneous coincidences, arrangements of meetings, arrangements of facilities, the arrangement of resources, which mysteriously, or not so mysteriously arrive when you need them. You wonder about the progress of this Teaching Mission, yet it is held within the palm of Christ Michael’s hand in the Correcting Time. Through the Correcting Time there is the pervasive presence of spirit in association with Father, Son, and Spirit working actively for you and with you. Remember dear friends, dear children, that your planet will not be healed by us alone, but only cocreatively with you.
This, though difficult passage of work, is the most effective for you to learn it thoroughly, totally, completely as an ingrained part of your being. Were you to be fortunate to learn this before your transition to the morontia worlds, you will have gained an immense asset that morontial graduates have and know, an intrinsic knowledge that you are part of the universe, that you and your presence are known to all and you know all others. The separation which you feel on this planet is an illness. On the morontial and spiritual spheres separation will no longer exist.
My children, I bring you under my wing as a mother hen brings her children, her chicks, under her wings. Feel the oneness under this protective umbrella. Know that you are in and with the presence that pervades this local universe. Know that you are cared for. Know that there is no separation between us except that which you desire. Blessings to you during your journey. Blessings to you during this week. We are with you; we love you; and may the peace of God pervade all your hearts. Good day. (T/R: Daniel Raphael)
TEACHER THEMULIAH: Hello my friends, I am Deborah’s personal teacher, Themuliah. We have many talks together and I am so happy to be addressing a larger group. God is so good. Doesn’t it feel so good to experience his love in your life and that love that you express with one another? This is what we need; we need to be messengers of love to this world. So many people don’t know what it feels like to be loved by God. They believe in God, but they haven’t felt his love. We are those lights. We can send that love through us as a channel and give them an enhanced opportunity to experience this most exquisite reality in their life.
You remember the song, “What the World Needs Now is Love Sweet Love”. It truly does need the love of our divine Father to be healed. And you have chosen yourselves to partake in this mission of love, of our Michael and we will support you more than a hundred percent. So trust in that. Trust in the process of your becoming. Allow your time to ripen as Jesus allowed his time to ripen. Don’t be in a hurry, but let God lead the way. Thank you. (T/r: Deborah Goaldman)
MALVANTRA MELCHIZEDEK: Thank you for your magnificent courage. You are enabled to proceed, to spread the joy of the gospel through the interventions of your Sovereign Master. Your purpose in your mortal existence is to establish a well-balanced personality. Your physical, intellectual, and spiritual dimensions must be healthy and pure and balanced in synchronicity for the purpose of achieving the most open and consistent pathway to your Mystery Monitor, the divine gift. Its most precious essence should not be impinged upon by pollutants or by fear. Cleanse yourself.
In your traditions the body was viewed as a temple, housing the jewel of all creation. View yourself as a vessel of purity. In your thoughts, which you have been told can be weighed and measured, be careful of what you think about, for your thoughts have consequences. Be gentle in your speech, for your words can both harm and help. Be valiant in your expression, in your understanding of spiritual values, which are imported for the purpose of expressing the eternal ~ designed pattern promulgated by the Trinity ~ for the purpose of duplicating the glory from the infinite down to the finite. You will need to gather your courage to step forward with your committed belief that your thinking of Jesus’ teachings needs to be applied in daily outpourings of love to the brethren that pass your way.
Your seraphic assistance is specifically assigned by Nebadonia to assist and to delegate, purposefully, opportunities for your personal growth and development. Be in tune with clear pure vision to accept the connections and the opportunities that are being presented to you. The future rests in the bosom of the Universal Father, not to cause any level of anxiety or apprehension on your part. You reside in the auspices of a Creator Son’s majestic rule in concert with the maternal grace of a most sublime Creative Daughter.
As you intune to the circuitous atmosphere, you will have difficulty designating the categories from whence this energy comes. Do not be troubled by your inability to perceive “from what source does this exceptional feel come from?” Simply preserve your lessons by daily practice of meditative contemplation and afterwards retain the ability to reflectively consider your perceptions of the Divine Presence, which we need not mention, has been enhanced, and saturates your very meetings. Consider your role of leadership, couched and overshadowed by fraternal feelings of brotherhood and sisterhood, where you’re obligated in a most honorable fashion to assist your comrades who struggle to reach the pool of eternal grace that you drink at.
Forever remember that the banner of Satania flies with the pride of the loyal sentient beings that refused to rebel and remained steadfast and resolute in their loyalty to the divine court of Salvington. Michael’s intention is complete reclamation, complete rejuvenation, under the auspices of the guidance of the Universal Father in conjunction with the Eternal Son and the Infinite Spirit in existential splendor. Waves and force fields are spreading out of Havona earmarked specifically for Orvonton. Ancients of Days meditate with a vision of your improved world. Forget not that your good shepherd, wandering over green pastures by still waters, will not neglect the lost sheep.
(T/R: Stephen Mark)
NEBADONIA: Good afternoon dear friends, this is Nebadonia. I send all my love to you, dear children. You don’t realize how the love spreads in a place like this that almost explodes. Continue with all your love for one another and try to reach out for everyone that you meet. This is your mother, Nebadonia. (T/R: Lucille Kettell)
TEACHER RAYSON: Good afternoon, this is Rayson. Thank you for your patience, participation, for being here, both in body, in mind, and in spirit. You’ve made wonderful decisions in your life and many hardships have been incurred for many of you to be here. I have two issues to address to you today, the first being a continuing discussion about the development of community. The second involves a discussion about the ministerial Avonal Son who is to come.
In the development of community, nothing will occur unless you make plans. Still, nothing will occur unless you make decisions, and then still nothing will occur until you take action that is in concert with those plans and those decisions. For many of you, you have participated in the Teaching Mission as active participants. Yet this has been passive in some ways, as it only required your participation to act as students. The decisions you made helped you appear every two weeks, or week, or month at the TEAM session and you listened and your learned and you came to conferences.
The Teaching Mission is in one respect a creative effort, an extension of the Correcting Time. It is a creative extension in that Michael created it, extended and initiated its extension into the very communities in which you live. Yet overall, it is a cocreative program where nothing will occur without your active participation to cocreate the healing of this planet. You recall that there was reference this morning to Machiventa’s program of community building and what would that require? That would require the cocreative active participation by mortals with celestials. This is something that you’re not used to yet. This is something which requires skills for participation with celestials on a regular basis. We have begun that in several Teaching Mission groups.
You perhaps have read in a prior transcript from the Northern Colorado Teaching Mission group where the group is now at a standstill. The group must meet on its own and devise a suggested format to the celestials as to how they would like to proceed. It is far too doctrinaire for us to speak directly to you all the time. Now it is time for participa-tion. It is time to think, to plan, to make decisions and take action. We are not necessarily talking about social activism. Simply in the begin-ning just devise a format whereby mortals can cocreatively work with celestials in your groups. Some groups, of course, are not ready. And that is fine. This is developmental and evolutionary. However, some groups yearn to move forward. The development and devising of spiritual centers is one evidence of this necessity that people have to take action in fellowship with celestials. This is simply a recommendation to that group and to other groups. How would you like to interact with your celestial teacher? Do you have issues or programs you would like to address? Perhaps some of these issues would take ten months, meeting twice a week, or every two weeks to resolve, to come to completion. Time is not relevant, but is a significant aspect of mortal life. But the completion and full term development of ideas and issues, so that they become resolved fully and completely this year or a hundred years from now, careful thought is required but exploration is more that is needed now.
You say, “Well what could this be, what could we talk about, for instance?” Let me give you an example, and this is only an example. One of you might say you would like to start a day care center, and of course there are many models for that in your society. You could simply advertise, have mothers with children come by your address, drop them off and be on their way. You would feed them, clean them, nurture them and let them play. You would hold them and nap them and you would care for them as your own. But as Urantians, Teaching Mission partici-pants, perhaps there is an overlay that you would be interested in. Perhaps you would be interested in talking to celestials to discuss what overlay you would like to apply to a day care center, and how would you address small children. We are now talking about the development of internal policies of treatment towards children. Yes, that sounds very institutional doesn’t it? But this is where the future lies. When you go from a full heart, a full heart must then share. And how do you share and when do you share? These are the questions. And we say, “Wherever you go, whatever business you are in or whatever business you plan, there is perhaps an overlay that can be applied that looks like the future.” The future will not arrive in peace, in harmony and order unless you begin preparing for it now and begin to apply the basic fundamentals of a new society.
Let us continue with the daycare center idea. Let us say you do have a day care center and you studied the Urantia Book and the archives of the Teaching Mission to learn new input about how to care for children in a new society, the spiritual ways that helps these little souls grow so that when they reach the age of first moral decision, it’s the right decision. And what kind of materials would you send along to parents when they go home, not necessarily as proselytizing material, but simply stating these are our policies and this material would go forth from their hands to other hands? Soon you’d have more adults, parents with children, who come to your facility wanting the same kind of care.
And no, we are not suggesting that you give away these services, for your time is valuable, it is worth your hire and you should be rewarded financially and materially in ways that complement your life so that you can be a complement to these small lives. And in your advertising, what overlay would you apply to it? When you advertise day care for your facility what overlay would you apply to it? And not knowing what to do, you would go to your Teaching Mission center to a session and ask your teacher. Perhaps that teacher is not an expert, but they have resources in all the teachers throughout this planet to bring to you in this forum to assist you. This is initiating a new level, a new forum for interacting with your Teaching Mission teachers. It may not be applicable to all groups, but if your group has advanced, developed, and is seemingly in a stayed and static position, perhaps it is time to look at these things.
And no, we are not necessarily looking for you to go out and do good deed work, social activism that applies to others and then you can go home and forget about it. We are talking about the application of these principles of Michael through the Teaching Mission in your lives and in your work that affects other people, that you take home and you live and wrestle with these issues.
And yes, you must practice what you preach. Apply the same principles in your own home with your children, your grandchildren, nieces and nephews, as you do with the day care children. Do you see the point? This is just one example. It was spoken one time by a teacher some years ago about cocreative working teams. This is what these could become. They could approach many issues, for many lives, and affect many, many people in your communities.
Concerning the second issue, yes there are plans afoot for a Magisterial Avonal Son to visit the planet and be here in perpetuity, but we advise you not to sink into a messianic complex waiting for healing, and peace, and good times and the Aquarian Age. I assure you, my friends, this will not occur. And should an Avonal Son walk through these doors at this moment your world would not change. You would still have terrorists, murderers, arsons, kidnappings, and such. And do you think you would be disappointed? Even the most stout-hearted of you would be disappointed. And this Son will be here to cocreatively heal your planet with you. No, he will not heal the planet alone. It will simply be evidence that you are the last agondonters, and your children and grandchildren will see this individual and know that he is from another realm, now made material. How long will it take even after this Son arrives to heal your planet? A year? Maybe a week? No, my friends, it will be centuries, centuries even after his arrival. There are pockets of resistance on your planet, of ego, yes, individuals who hold their esteem and their image above all others. Will they submit? Will they relent? Many will not. Many will live out their days until their demise in that state.
This may not be the message you wanted to hear, but I wanted you to face this new reality which will come into your world. The presence of this Son is hope, visual hope, that the Father is active, that there is a plan for healing your world, that there is peace on the horizon, even if it is long after your deaths. You may think this will be a time of jubilation. It will be a time of great disappointment. It will be a time of personal responsibility, living with both your feet in both worlds. You Teaching Mission activists, Urantia Book readers, you will have one foot on one side and live in this material plane at the same time. Personal responsi-bility for the course of your life will be even more heavy upon your shoulders and it will be upon your mind constantly.
This is not a warning. It’s simply an advisement. I do not want you to despair when this occurs. I do not want you to be disappointed and go back to old ways. You may say, “How could that be?” But my friend when you are disappointed and you see your friends disappointed and dismayed that havoc still reigns in some parts of your world, you will despair. Yet, there is visible evidence, living hope that the realm you have not seen is now in your world. Then you must live moment to moment, responsible for your decisions, knowing that this is not an ethereal ideation, a machination of your mind, a hope that is useless, but truly evidence that God exists in your world. Your faith will not be disappointed. Your vision of clarity, the feeling of Nebadonia with you, of the companionship of Michael, is not false, but real, made more real and evident by the arrival of this special individual. We are the Messiah, so to speak, of a new age, future age, a new era on this planet, but perhaps not today.
Be at peace. Know that God loves you. Know that the peace you feel in your heart and the companionship that you know with the one is true. There is no falseness even in that evident disappointment. It is true, Michael is here. His dispensation as Jesus was not wasted and will never be wasted, but is a living true archive of wisdom for other planets throughout his kingdom. You are the living teachers of generations to come. May all your lessons be received well and dispersed equally. We love you so much. We’re here immediately, evidently, passionately, with you. Good day. (T/R: Daniel Raphael)
SATURDAY NIGHT SESSION
MONJORONSON: Hail to you, the people of Urantia. Let it be known, the coming mission, which is to unfold. As my missionaries I ask of you, are you ready to serve? Are you ready to serve the one God of all Gods, the Almighty, the Host of hosts, the Lord God, your Father? For it is He who commissions this mission. Behold, I see you before me, my students. For those that have ears to hear, let them hear, and those who have hearts to know, let them know of the coming Son. As I am one in the Father, so I shall bring the Father to you, his children.
Be not swayed by missions of grandeur, for the mission is hard work at hand. Let you be known On High as the workers of the light, those who chose to dig in their heels and work in the trenches, for this is the real work of the realm. Just as your Creator Son worked and toiled and loved men, so shall you. Whosoever shall hear the call will be welcome.
I leave you with my blessings, with my love and understanding of the trials ahead. Be not weary, but gird up your loins for the time to come. I leave you now. Amen. (T/R: Wendy Creel)
PORSHUNTA: This is Porshunta (speaking for the Counsel of 24). Greetings my fellow mortals. We commend you for your great works this weekend, for you have made great morontial strides in your decisions to come together and work toward a common goal, for your furtherance into the arena of your Father. I wish to remind you that we were once mortals on this planet. Dare to step out and be courageous in the name of your Father and this mission of Michael of Nebadon. Be courageous. Step forth, and you shall look back with awe. You shall be rewarded On High. Learn to look with an infinite eye. Your career is vast and it starts here. I tell you the Father has gone before you in your life. We are up here watching you and encouraging you and guiding you in specific directions. Have the ear to listen and learn that we are working with you under Father’s hand. This is all. I just wish you words of encouragement and know that we have walked this earth and we lived to carry the love of our heavenly Father. Be at peace. (T/R Wendy Creel)
BERTRAM: I am Bertram. I am a teacher from this area. It is wonderful to be here at this gathering. It has been our pleasure to open our arms and open our hearts and have you with us. It has surely been our pleasure to know and receive you, to share with you, to frolic with you, to love with you, to dance with you, to have this joyous time. May the living waters flow over and around you, cleansing you deeply and renewing you to your core, rededicating you for this wonderful work that you have all been called to.
This is what it's all about, loving one another, being a loving example of light and life. Now as you spread out from this core of renewal, take with you renewed hearts, filled with love for one another. Do the will of the Father. And may you all rededicate yourselves to the work of our Master Son, of our Mother Nebadonia, of our loving Heavenly Father, of the Eternal Son, and Infinite Spirit. We are all one great cosmic family.
We must make this show world wide, in all endeavors, whether it’s with the Women’s Corps, whatever your calling, whatever direction you’re led. Do it with a full heart, a renewed heart, and as you leave this renewal center go out and let’s renew the world. Make it a place as wonderful and beautiful as this, and leave a legacy to our children, our grandchildren. Light and life is coming, a Son is coming, please rejoice and be glad. Thank you so much for coming to our area. We love you all. (T/R: Tara Logan)
MANTOUBA MELCHIZEDEK: Greetings fellow servants in this mission. I am Mantouba, a Melchizedek. I am assigned to this sphere to enhance the work of the Correcting Time. In cohesion with many of my colleagues I sometimes am aligned with this willing vessel in order to bring his enterprises to fuller fruition and as such, commingle with you, his many associations, to expand this work to each of you. I simply come to pledge to you that your Melchizedek Teachers, now many in number, are determined to rebuild and reestablish spiritually viable educational institutions and systems in the correcting worlds, yours among them, numbering three score and more depending upon your measurement of relative reality. It is certain that your beleaguered world is in this number.
We are pleased with what we see to be rapid progress made possible by the quickening spiritual energies being brought forth by many in cohesion: life carriers, energy directors, administrators of many kinds, and personalities working together along with neighbors from other parts of this grand local universe. It is a privilege to be here. We will work with you cocreatively to manifest light and life upon all of these troubled worlds, each having somewhat complex and individual problems of its own. Each sphere is populated by unique personalities at various stages of rebellion disruption. This greatly magnifies the undertaking of this Correcting Time, which is not your world alone as you see. All of these planets are receiving the watch care and ministry of all of us on the celestial side and all those countless mortals who join with us on all these spheres. Once again, you must broaden your thinking to universe realities. You are doing so nicely.
My second reason for speaking is to tell you how enormously impressed we are at the enlightened rapport and camaraderie that we have seen emanate so brightly from this gathering, for most gatherings of mortals upon Urantia spawns a cacophony of resentments, phoniness, role playings, desperate agendas, cries of, “I am someone, listen to me.” The many celestials gathered here find your behavior toward one another to be exhilarating. We see in this our own success and it brings us great joy to see you interacting in the spirit, sharing the joys of the spirit with a bare minimum of personality discord. We applaud you. You are our good friends. As we influence you to the light we take great pride in this service and I assure you the pride is felt by the highest personages of this Correcting Time all the way to those who are, shall we say, in the trenches working with individuals each day as individual teachers, our beautiful morontian children who have seen the light and come back to share it, as many of you will do one day, reaching back to help those along the path. We applaud you because you are the ones who have taken our very fine inspirations, I must say, and made them happen. You are the hearts, the minds, the hands, the feet, the souls on Urantia. We are not the citizens of your world. We are not the guardians. We are not the protectors. We are not here to save you. You will save yourself. We will work together and this will be our triumph together. This is the cooperative way of the universe. Droplets are weak. Living water is strong and flows surely into the ocean of the universal Father’s bound-less infinite and unparalleled love for each of you, who so loved you that you are indwelt with this glorious spark of light that shines ever brightly.
As the years roll forward you will see profound things. ou will be part of profound things. And we will make a profound and glorious future for Urantia and for these other worlds of the rebellion. So far, so good. On behalf of the Melchizedeks, thank you. Goodnight.(T/R: Jim Cleveland)
TEACHER TOMAS: How happy I am to have you in my embrace, dear pupils, friends, brothers, sisters, comrades. I am Tomas, a teacher. I am inclined to thank the efforts of the Teaching Mission for coming into this quadrant of the nation. This pathway to stand up and be … bordering international is a good expansion into new territory and I know you are of a race of people who can appreciate the value of conquest. You are winning the battle of faith and overtaking the enemy. The enemy is simply that which is not. For we love to see divinity, order, and patterns in all things. The spread of your movement, having a clear single vantage point, proves the point of our reality for as I am known to say, “we are nothing without you.” We so enjoy helping you to become more like us and then sending you out to be all that you can be by practicing the art of living in the safe company of … of fellow believers, siblings in the family of God.
We are privileged to be a part of your progression. We owe everything to the tireless midwayer corps who carry our bags, wipe our brow, occasionally kiss our ring and keep the water fresh and cold. And they do all this between their service among you and your consignees …
There is no finer profession, in my opinion, than being a teacher. There is no doubt that we can see the results of our efforts. We can see them by the evolution of you and your world. We don’t have to wait lifetimes to see your eager grasp of the concepts. Cherish one another and cherish these memories which you build in these galleries and in the treasured … that will endure throughout eternity. This is just the beginning of a long march we will make together in unison toward Paradise. We will be fellow travelers forever … What a joy and privilege it is to be with you in your burgeoning experiences in love. The Father’s family, Mother’s kids, … Thank you for letting me be part of our experience with you and our eternal experience as well. Good night. (T/R: Gerdean)
NEBADONIA: Good morning, my children. This is Nebadonia, your mother. How I delight in each one of you. You cannot possibly fathom the joy in my heart as I see how you have all responded and rejoiced in one another’s company this weekend. Truly you are the light bearers on this planet and we have much work to do together you and I and I ask you to prepare yourselves for a life of increased service under the banner of our beloved Michael.
And so I ask you, are you interested, are you ready, are you willing to walk out even farther in faith than you already have? This is not a journey that you will be doing on your own. No, my children, you are never alone and you never have been alone. You are accompanied by a cotillion of angels and guides and helpers and the Father’s love to encourage you, inspire you, and lead you into increasingly more wondrous paths of service and expression of the God self through you.
And so I ask you, are you willing to go the distance? We need you. We invite you. Spend a few moments searching your heart. It is perfectly acceptable if you sense doubt, if you sense a feeling of, “What does this mean? What will I be doing? How shall I comport myself?” All of your doubts and fears are known to your Father and to me and they are not important. We only ask that you consider this invitation to expand your faith, to grow your beauty, to become as Father conscious and Father expressive as you can be. So find that place within you, that duality that desires this but yet does not know how it will unfold. And your Father and I will minister to you. (Pause)
Let my softness envelop you. Let my breath rest gently upon every doubt, every whisper of resistance within you and melt that away into the sweetness of being one with our Creator. (pause) Breathe into me. I am the womb of life and in me you have new life, life eternal. Feel my softness envelop you and drink in the sweetness of being in safety, the comfort and security of my womb, your home, your rest. (Pause) And receive now the presence of your Father. (T/R: Donna D’Ingillo)
MICHAEL: Beloved children, I am Michael, your Father. Receive my truth, my being, into your body. Your Mother weaves you into my being, my eternal life essence of truth, and this is the substance for your soul to be nourished. Every thought, every idea, every feeling that you have ever experienced throughout the course of your lifetime can receive this living truth. Now during this time of correction my truth light is shining down on Urantia to free you from the spiritual bondage of the past. And so your Mother and I extend an invitation to you. How much truth light do you wish to ingest? How much of me do you want in your being? That we are coming into your mind and making certain necessary corrections is fundamental for you to perceive the higher level of the goodness and the beauty that awaits you. And we extend this invitation to you to go deeper into the cocreative mystery as we enjoin with you now to bring light and life on Urantia.
We need you, my children. We need each and every one of you, freed from all of the legacy of the past, the evil, the sin, the iniquity that has been perpetuated on Urantia may no longer reside here. It is your Mother and I who will free you from this enslavement, but I ask you now, how much truth do you want? You will not always understand the ways in which your Mother and I administer to you. It is not so much your understanding that we require. It is your faith. And this is what I ask of you now. Do you trust me, my little ones? Can you fully trust me to lead you into those green pastures of living spiritual refreshment that is my truth? I know what is in your hearts, but the limitations of the human mind do yield much resistance. I am here to help you overcome that and to be, in me, alive, a new vibration of truth, a new expression of beauty, and a delicious fragrance of goodness.
Find that place now within you that wants to trust in me and your Mother and I will add something new and creative within you. I ask you in the coming days, my children, to receive more of me in your time of still-ness, to ask your Mother to encircuit you in my living truth. That will literally free you from all of the bondage that still contains this planet in the legacy of the Lucifer rebellion. For you are the harbingers of the spiritual renaissance on Urantia and your minds and your bodies must be totally free of any shadow of the past so that you can bring the resurrection and the rebirth to my world.
Will you do this for me? Will you come to me as I came to my Father in heaven in trust? Will you come to me with that same child like innocence and ask for me to uplift you and to feed you with my truth? And I know your answers my children and I thank you. I ask for your patience as you allow this new truth substance to emerge in your mind and to be gentle and non-judgmental with yourselves when you see some of the shadows emerge into your consciousness. It is not who you are. It is a soul distortion. And my truth will free you from all of the past. And your body will be emblazoned with light, reverberating with the glorious vibrancy of the love of the Father in Paradise.
Let your hearts open to this love, my children. Receive it fully. This is your birthright. The healing time is here. You are bringing the healing to Urantia. Bestow unto yourselves the time and the place necessary to heal, to come to me and to your Mother in innocent trust, asking us to free you. One by one we will remove all of the shackles, all of the bonds, tethering you only to that which your soul desires.
My blessings, my peace, my love, my truth shines upon you now. Receive it and rejoice. Celebrate your beauty. Revel in the wonder of being a child. Satiate yourself in being in your Mother and me as we enjoy so, delighting so, loving so in being with you. (Pause)
In the coming days you will notice a quickening within you, an upstepping of certain vibrational frequencies. Relax and receive these my children, and know it is the hand of your Mother working within you, opening you, preparing you to receive more of me within you. Rejoice. A time of healing is upon you. You are the lights on Urantia. As you spend each day in stillness with your Mother and me in conjunction with your Thought-Adjusters, find that desire. Ask yourself that question: How much truth do I wish to ingest? Ask us into your mind and into your body and we will be there. Each moment you have access to us. Each moment is sacred and divine. Love your lives, children, and thus show forth the Spirit Within you. There shall be no doubt that you have been with me, and that together we shall see God. (T/R Donna D’Ingillo)

The Correcting Time
is the era launched to reclaim the Master’s world of nativity from the legacy of Lucifer and atone for the default of Adam and Eve, to return the focus of humanity to the love of our Eternal Parents and their plan for us, their children, into light and life for this material world and for other inhabited worlds beyond.
