* Elyon (Jonathan): Friends, I greet you. I always greet you
as a friend, for it is a continual reminder that I am a creature
as you are. As creatures we are equals before our common
Creator. You are often aware of how more apparent the presence
of creatures is than Creators in your daily activities. I must
remind you that you do directly experience a Creator; your first
moments alive was the beginning of the experience of creatorship
through your biologic parents. I assure you that when you have
ascended, your encounter with the Creator in the manner in which
I have met Michael will be astounding. In your human life always
retain the perspective that you can and are in fact going to
experience the presence of the Creator with as much certainty as
you experience the presence of creatures.
I will make a change here to discuss how you are perhaps not
creators but "creatives". You are able to create destiny.
Picture if you will your planet as a canoe. It is moving towards
its destination. Many of your fellows from ages past into the
long future ahead will sit in this boat and provide some driving
force forward. At times it will pause at the morontia marinas to
change crews. Every stroke of every paddle placed in the water
propels your planet forward. The meaning of the Correcting Time
is that this world has spent too much time paddling on one side,
paddling forward and backward together. With your creative en-
ergies we will synchronize this vessel and increase our forward
movement. Those who have creator status are remarkable for they
are the presence of God amongst us, but we creatures ought not to
lessen the worth of our creatureship, for we are creative in our
own right. This is the pattern Michael has brought for us to
realize; it is Supreme "creativeship". You can experience more
of Michael's presence through creative endeavors. You can better
understand the divine manifestation of love and concern for all
in the universe through your birthing of new ideas, of realizing
the accomplishment of previously nonexistent activities. You run
parallel with him and are always assisted with great interest.
You are advanced enough in your theology to percieve that
being a creator is only one function of the great I AM. So, it
is not in error to use the word "creator" as a function of your
being, though I have used "creative" in place of "creator" with
purpose to make distinction between us creatures and God. But to
generate in your own being that which before now has not been
expressed is a creator activity. At least this is how I un-
derstand the methods of Nebadon. As the master had so well
ministered to his fellows, he admonished them to go likewise and
do that for others; we each are encouraged to create.
I have satisfied ny desire to express today and am willing
to speak with you as you may be willing.
Tom: How do healing and creativity mesh?
* Elyon: Healing restores the positive direction of creative
energy. Healing fulfills the function of placing the paddle back
in the hands. Healing is restorative and, in this age on this
planet, is a valuable function. You have a phrase, "If it's not
broken don't fix it." Healing has its own end in sight. As the
world develops know that, while you were at this stage in your
planetary progress, you are relied upon to be conduits for
healing forces to work. But may I add in an attempt at humor,
that the best healing is like that of your trained puppies, do
the Father's will at all times in your life. Following this
healing you will make great steps forward in the healing of the
world from its pain and isolation. Does this help?
Tom: Yes. There's a phrase of sharing the inner life with
God is synonymous with doing the will of the Father. How can we
tie sharing the inner life with God with healing? Is this an
attitude that would take place on the patient's side where he
would feel more open to communicate with God?
* Elyon: This is correct. The mechanism whereby this occurs
follows this way: In yourself sharing your inner life with God
brings your healing and, in sharing this with your fellows,
plants the seed which may become established wherein they will
venture inward and share as you have and encounter their healing.
This is a situation where healing takes place without a healer
involved other than the presence of the Father in each. It is an
example of wherein you heal yourself you thereby make it possible
for others to heal themselves. I must clarify that some physical
ailments that healing is sought for are not divorcements from the
will of the Father.
Tom: What do you mean?
* Elyon: Philosophies exist which consider that freedom from
pain and affliction equals divine favor. Healing can take the
form of acceptance of conditions, that inner life you speak of,
the orientation of values such that some of your physical
ailments are not considered with greater importance than need be.
Tom: You mean they are not considered real ailments from
your standpoint? They are actually helpers?
* Elyon: From the perspective of personality growth this is
true. However, I feel with you your troubles. It is not to
discount them but to properly order their importance. This does
not mean you need not seek to offer healing to those in need. I
only attempt here to indicate that there is healing inwardly in
relation to God, and there is healing of your physical vehicle.
The inner healing can accommodate much discomfort in the physical
realm where outward healing may not have opportunity to manifest.
Tom: When you have a malfunction in the wiring of the
brain, is that considered an inner or an outer problem?
* Elyon: It is an inner problem from the perspective of the
Divine Presence for it hinders the work within. It is an outer
problem to the human being, for you as a personality have the
ability to connect with the Thought Adjuster even with these im-
pairments. But until you know that you have this ability the
Divine Spirit is challenged. This is a complicated situation
that would require much discussion to clarify, for superficially
it could be questioned how the Thought Adjuster could be so
impaired, and yet you can be so freed from the impairment. One
of the great miracles of creativity is the presence of your flesh
and blood organisms and the development of bonafide spirit
personalities within these little chemistry sets. The complexity
of the formulas, the intricacy of all the workings, is a
spectacular display of creativity. As if that were not enough,
there arises a spirit being who belongs to the Creator of all.
Tom: I never tire of Jessona's comments, especially on
healing, if she has anything to offer us.
* Jessona: Greetings to you. I would make a comment on
healing from this perspective: There is an element to healing
which may be called preventative. It is worthy of any healer to
be there in a restorative sense to those in need, but likewise
healing ministry can include the establishment of helpful
attitudes, spiritual orientation, and physical activities which
ward off the occurrence of ailment. So, where healing can be
corrective, it can likewise be considered preventative on a world
that is confused. On a world of more normal status healing
becomes more like what you would consider your first aid kit,
something that you would have ready but is not always accessed.
Here we have established orders of angels to attend to much that
needs this corrective and healing action. I, as a master sera-
phim, am assigned to establish corps of beings who are in a sense
first aid kits, prepared to act to both dress injury and prevent
injury. I assure you that you and those like yourself who are
dedicated to the work of healing are assisted greatly. Likewise
we encourage you continually to pursue this valuable gift and
trait that you have and that you seek. Though it is the Father
who gives the restorative energies, it is those like yourselves
who are the pathways for this to manifest.
I have a challenging exercise which I know will underline
the lesson of the day. Since you are each a reflection of the
creator attributes of Michael, even in a small, human way, as you
exchange with your fellows attempt to realize your creative
commonality. It will further your understanding that what you do
for your fellows you do for Michael, for Michael is with each of
you and has imparted his abilities to you as they are defined in
Tom: Could you repeat that? Our creative commonality?
* Jessona: It is an exercise of seeing in others the presence
of Michael through the understanding of the unique abilities
bestowed upon you by him, limited by your human framework,
nonetheless, another mechanism whereby you can realize your
brotherhood and Michael. Creativity is but one mechanism to do
this. In a sense, it is like the effect of a spark plug, both
ends of the gap return to itself, the plug. But at the gap is
where love, where healing, where relationship take place between
you and your fellows, between you and your Creator. I ask you to
consciously witness this gap when you are with another and
experience the transfer of the energy. Does this clarify?
Tom: I guess I'll just have to get into it. I have a
general picture, thank you.
* Jessona: You are welcome, and I perceive that you are a
creative individual. You will have no difficulty executing this
exercise. For that matter, you have already become quite adept.
Evelyn: From the remarks today, I see creativity in
relationship with others. I have a tendency to think of
creativity in terms of art which is often a more solitary
pursuit. Now I see creativity can be thought of in relation with
others, like healing is a creative endeavor.
* Jessona: I would also point you toward the Trinity and
underline knowledge you already contain: that in all creation
nothing transpired until the relationships of Deity existed. In
a sequential sense, the creator aspects of the Father were not
manifest until the Son and the Spirit were present. So, I assure
you that creativity does include relationship. For the solo art-
ist this does include the bringing out from within the presence
of God through art. Even this form of creativity benefits
greatly from an audience. Creativity is like love in that it
thrives on exchange.
Mary: I'd like to take this opportunity to thank the
teachers, Jessona and Elyon and the others, for acting as our
guides to help us develop an understanding of what is going on in
our lives, the challenges and opportunities we face. Thank you
to the Father for providing the meaning and the value that is the
foundation of these exercises.
* Elyon: Your gratitude is warmly received. In return I
express my gratitude to you for your diligent efforts in this
mission program. I myself, Elyon, and all that I associate with
in this assignment are eternally grateful for the opportunity to
be here, but this gratitude is less significant than our
gratitude for the results we see in each of you. It is a reward
beyond any measure. Merely the opportunity to serve is not as
rewarding as the observance of your attainments.
Mary: I want to acknowledge that it certainly is a team
effort. It's truly an enjoyable experience working as a team.
Tom: All I can add to that is yippee!

Urantia Book Page 2076:
"When there is so much good truth to publish and proclaim, why
should men dwell so much upon the evil in the world just because it
appears to be a fact? The beauties of the spiritual values of truth are
more pleasurable and uplifting than is the phenomenon of evil."
(Thanks Jim...McCallon for the quote)
