*	Elyon (Jonathan):  Thank you, my friends, for once again
meeting us that we may exchange experiences, insights, with each
other, all with the eye single to growth in this universe, of which
there are great discoveries to be received by all who are
adventurous, who are stirred in the inner man to discover.  You each
have contributed to one another's spiritual progress through the
simple medium of conversation.  You broaden each other's ability to
grasp significance in life and to grapple with difficulties.  You do
this by revealing your fortitude as well as your insecurities. 
Bravery does encourage another; however, even the exposure of your
frailties helps others to reduce the sense of isolation, that is, the
sense of lack of ability.  You witness that difficulties are
	Today I would like to focus awhile on presence.  Being embodied
as you are, you are quite engulfed in the need to be in one location
or another throughout your day.  Much of your activity, in fact all,
has a great deal to do with where you are located physically.  You,
my students, are developing the fine qualities of presence of mind. 
You are learning to use your mental abilities; you are integrating
the lessons we have provided regarding insight, intuition,
intelligence.  Presence of mind enriches your experience in life; it
allows you to pack your present moment with all that is worthwhile
from your past and all that is valuable for your future.
	As in all classrooms, likewise, in this classroom of our
melchizedeks, to simply be here to raise your hand when roll call is
taken is only the first step in presence.  Your active contribution
to the discussions is the presence of mind that you bring and share
with each other.
	As you might be suspecting, there is another presence of which
I will speak and that is the presence of spirit.
	When you stand in the presence of others, make the effort to
consciously hold in your mind the awareness that you are a son or
daughter of God, even at the time when you feel most like the
monkey-origins that your body has evolved from.  Also, take the extra
step to realize that you bring with you the Father; no matter where
you are located He is present.  This is true of all that you
encounter in your life; everyone carries with him His indwelling
presence.  But I challenge you this day to become mindful of this
truth, not in understood theory but in action.
	It is forever well and good for you to always ask yourself the
question, "What would Jesus do?"  But today I encourage you to go the
extra mile and ask yourself, "How would Jesus be?"  Of course, we are
not of the order of Creator Sons.  But as ascending mortals, we have
folded up within us great potentials, and as you seek to peel back
the layers of your being to discover its depths and its spiritual
beings contained therein, know that from your center is the Father
who is likewise pushing to the outside to help unfold these same
	When your evolution is complete and you stand in the presence
of the Father on Paradise, you will reveal the presence of this same
Father as your very being.  You will present to Him the rewards of
His will that all become perfect as He is perfect.  You will reveal
to the Father that which is folded up within Himself, experiential
	Spiritual presence is powerful.  It springs from an enlightened
mind that understands that there are celestial hosts in your midst,
that your environment, spiritually speaking, has the ambiance of the
Spirit of Truth.  This awareness will greatly guide you in your
	In my assessment of your spiritual standing, your growth, I
perceive that you all know these principles.  Today I simply
encourage you to activate, not sporadically, but continually this
enlightenment in your moment-to-moment daily activities.
	Your dedication to our mission is always appreciated, and we
are more than pleased that you are so devoted and enthusiastic toward
the lessons and their application.  We are likewise relieved that you
are able to forget about us from time to time such that you don't
rely upon us to effect your growth without your own strenuous
efforts.  Although we know you will not approach the fanaticism of
teacher reliance, we will always encourage you to continually be
mindful and in relationship always aware of the Father, the Son, and
the Spirit.
	I am Elyon, and I thank you for hearing my words today.  
	Ann:  I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for
the words you gave me back in February regarding my disease.  I want
to express my gratefulness for the healing that is taking place in my
body.  I am so grateful to you and to the midwayers, the Life
Carriers, and the Father.
*	Elyon:  My dear sister, I receive your appreciation fully, and
I am assured of your continual improvement, because it is the will of
the Father.  You have diligently applied your understanding from your
many years of spiritual work.  This has been as contributory to your
healing as has been the Father's hand.  Not only have you begun the
road to recovery and restoration, but you are being propelled beyond
the return to a new state.  Your personality has experienced an
episode of life that few relish.  What you have gained far surpasses
the mere contemplation of its possibility.  You have every and all
reason to be grateful.  I would encourage you to relish this
experience of gratitude, for it is also a vital factor in healing.  
	A further comment, you but little realize the effect your
experience has had on your fellows and how much ministry has been
rendered to each of them as they have witnessed your endurance and
have likewise witnessed your faith and trust.
	Evelyn:  Would it be possible to hear from one of the personal
teachers?  There are some people here who, to the best of my
knowledge, haven't heard from their teachers, at least not in this
group setting.  We certainly enjoy hearing from you, Elyon, but if
they have no objection, would it be possible, if there are no other
questions or topics?
	Jonathan:  I am getting the name Jansel.
*	Jansel:  It is with great enthusiasm that I have approached
this mission.  It is not often that I am willing to undertake large
projects;  I am more inclined as a personality to make little steps
to find fulfillment in accomplishing short goals.  But I have taken
the leap to be involved in this project which I have been told in my
training could last for several centuries.  This is a fortunate time
to be here on this world, as it is being prepared for Michael, that
he may have his bestowal world restored to its rightful conditions.
	I am happy to make myself known to you all and to my associate
Kirk.  Over the course of time we will be leaving our fingerprints on
the experience of others as we go about our work, as we learn to
integrate our high ideals into the seemingly chaotic events of life
on this world.
	Indeed, as this is a rare occasion for me, I find myself
searching for words.  But I do convey to you love, love that is not
containable in such a small word.  Thank you for encouraging me.
*	Darid:  This is Darid, and I wish to complement you, Evelyn, on
your fortitude, your determination in your projects, for you are
exhibiting the ability to be unmoved by obstacles, these recent
glitches in your effort to proceed.  This is contributing well toward
your future activities.  You are aware that, as enjoyable as smooth
sailing is, difficulties are the better builders of character.  So,
when complications meet you head on, meet them head on, for
difficulties are never as strong as the determined personality that
meets them.  You have freewill and creative resources through which
you are able to effect change.  Difficulties simply are what they
are, and that is that.  Being static obstacles, once you conceive of
a solution, they shatter like glass.
	Daniel:  Do any teachers have anything to say about the
upcoming conference?
*	Solonia:  I, Solonia, will comment.
	Daniel:  Thank you, dear.
*	Solonia:  Let me take us back to my time in the garden.  It was
a cherished time for me when the Adamic children would gather around
the Tree of Life and commune and share with one another in
fellowship, to celebrate their accomplishments and to forecast the
goals for the years that lay ahead.  Your conferencing is similar. 
Though we did this on a daily basis, you are doing this in quarterly
and yearly cycles.  As you gather together and wind up your communal
energy, you will all benefit from this infusion.  When you spin back
apart, you will scatter this energy in all the directions from which
you have come.
	This conference brings with it a different sort of attendance. 
Often gatherings of this nature are attended for upliftment and for
sharing.  In this case, there will be a healthy dose of ministry. 
This conference will contain both the element of play and recreation
and the element of spiritual ministry.  So, I encourage those
attending to be on the alert for opportunities, and I encourage all
attending to likewise be alert for the reception of ministry. 
*	Elyon:  This is Elyon, and I would wrap up our gathering today
by making a little comparison.
	You know the three wise men brought three gifts to Michael as
he lay in that little crib taking on the form of Joshua ben Joseph. 
I would encourage you to realize you have three presences through
which you may function.  One goes without saying, your physical form. 
The other two are for you to develop and grow into.  Rest assured
that the Father is as real and even more so than is the form you
inhabit.  I encourage you all to make efforts at expanding your sense
of presence.  Farewell.
