*	Evanson (Jonathan TR):  Hello to you all.  This is Evanson, and
I am wishing to make comment for you each individually before you
receive from your instructors today.
	I have observed your conversation and desire to emphasize a
need for you all; that is on the subject of giving and receiving. 
You have recently been encouraged to view this dynamic process as
instantaneous, that you receive as you give, and this is true, but I
desire to focus on the element of your will.  The orientation of your
will is what creates the perspective that you are either giving or
receiving.  In order to create balance, in order to avoid overmuch
orientation in either of these two functions, it is good to assess
the direction that you are focusing your activities, for even though
you receive as you give and you give in receiving, when the mind is
focused singly in one of these directions, it grows weary.  It grows
discontent.  This is when it is good to demand of yourself a reversal
of direction.  This shift of the mind is refreshing in itself, even
though the process has not changed at all.  It is as new in the
mind's eye as it is for your to turn a painting upside down.  The
functional aspects of giving and receiving have not changed, merely
your perception, and this can be refreshing to those in need of
receiving, and it can release frustration for those who have only
been receiving and yet experience discomfort from the unconscious
urge to give.
	I convey this to you today in order to encourage you to switch
your orientation when the need arises.  Thank you.
*	Elyon (Mark):  Greetings.  It brings me great joy to come among
you today as one who promotes greater understanding.  This is your
	In your discussions earlier today you are beginning to grasp
the significance of the multifaceted nature of the triad
relationships, and their significance in your everyday activities. 
You are beginning to realize the underlying foundation of
relationships of a triad nature so that, when you find yourselves
experiencing any given aspect, you may attempt to reach out to what
you consider to be other aspects of the triangle you happen to be in.
	Also realize that you may utilize many different triangles in
any situation; you are not limited to the resources available simply
through a single triad relationship, but may find yourselves
accessing and visiting other triad relationships to gain different
perspectives on a situation present in your reality.  The key you
will find is in the recognition of the attributes and the application
of the appropriate complementary corners of the particular
relationship.  Again, you will find yourselves accessing several
triangles, and in this process, finding yourself becoming more
familiar with the varied, numerous aspects surrounding any situation. 
The reality contained in any situation cannot be limited to any
single triangle, but rather branches into contact with other
triangles before culminating in its eventual unity.
	I have every faith that if you continue your studious
application to the lessons provided you will unfold many other triad
relationships which you will come to find neatly fit into your
triangle tree and also complement the relationships you are already
familiar with.  But as you stated in your discussion, do not forget
that the real fruit is the realization of the use of these
relationships in your understanding process, to consciously seek to
go to be in various corners of the triangles, to honestly and
sincerely desire to gain what insights and knowledge can be derived
from these corners as a way to seek fulfillment and balance in the
	Jonathan's analogy of the tree and the branches getting lighter
and thinner out towards the ends is a good one in that you must stay
firmly rooted in the center while attempting to reach for the outer
limits.  It would not be good to spend all focus on the far reaches
of the branches as your weight there would cause collapse.  It is a
desired goal to reach for these far corners and still maintain a firm
grasp on the trunk.
	I would also offer as suggestion that you realize that not
always are lessons delivered in multi-layers.  Sometimes a lessons is
stated, and it is desired that it be taken at face value; other times
you may distinguish varying layers of depth and truth in a lesson. 
Therefore, they do not necessarily demand the same scrupulous
treatment.  Often a given lesson is delivered and inadvertently there
are multiple layers of learning, and these are good to explore.  Just
do not get stuck on anticipation that every sentence has multiple
meanings.  This is not necessarily the case.
	I would conclude my remarks today and open the floor for other
teachers, questions, comments, or observations.
*	Darid (Jonathan):  This is Darid, and I would like to convey to
you a way of understanding Lantarnek's lesson of last week.  I have
revealed to Evelyn in the past that I like to dance.  You seeking to
understand these triangular principles are each a dancer.  The
principles themselves are the dance, and as you know often a dance is
choreographed, it has its steps thought through.  The various
significant events throughout the entire movement are planned.  The
connecting movements are arranged for amplification of beauty; not
only does one event express itself beautifully, but that all events
taken together is another level of beauty.  As you study these
triangles you are studying the dance and its movements.  Yet when one
undertakes a dance, one will always end up expressing slightly
differently than the intended sequence.  You may leap; you may spin,
but you may not necessarily land where you have chalked yourself to
land.  Going through an entire sequence is beneficial, however, it is
of utmost importance to any serious student to spend time working and
reworking a segment of the sequence.  This is Lantarnek's intention
with you when he expressed that you work on what you have.
	Also I would add one last comment, that it is very inspiring to
the dancer to at times break from the choreographed sequence and ad
lib to throw in one's own movements for the sheer enjoyment of doing
so.  This is the reason why you are encouraged to make and place
triangles on your own.
	I am finished.
	Evelyn:  I have been doing that today.  Mary mentioned an
enthusiasm triangle, which I have been trying to devise.  It falls
under focus.  Enthusiasm, endurance, and --I started with experiment
-- Elyon mentioned explore, and I like that better.  Maybe energy
instead of endurance.  
	While Elyon was talking I also came up with root, reach, and
*	Darid:  This is wonderful, and I am excited to see you doing
this.  It is enthusing to discover these relationships, and it will
strengthen you each as you face complexities in life's situations to
create an automatic ability to respond with a threefold effort.  This
will become natural, and you will find yourself far more able to
effect good outcome in these perplexing moments by deliberately
working in this manner.
	Thank you for sharing these triangles with us.
	Tom:  In discovering triangles, is it important to find a place
on the tree for it or just to discover the triangle itself?
*	Darid:  I would return your attention to your previous lesson
on the jigsaw puzzle as a way to illustrate that both are valuable. 
It may require developing numerous triangular relationships before
they reveal the interconnected relationships of these triangles to
one another.  Yes, connecting them to the tree reveals new insights,
but it's a secondary compilation growing out of the primary
association of three truths, three realities.  If you connect one to
the tree too soon, it will not break the limb, but you may find in
time that it needs to be repositioned as your comprehension expands
regarding the overall structure.
	You have spoken of a mobile that illustrates visually these
relationships.  When you create your triangles, they are like the
pieces sitting in the box not yet hung on your mobile.  If the box is
empty, there is no mobile to create.  So it is good to develop the
triangles even if you have no place at the time to connect them.
	Mark:  It's good to hear from you, Darid and Evanson.  It's
good to hear from the personal teachers.
*	Darid:  I thank you.  I would reveal -- this appears to be a
stronger word than I intend -- that many of the lessons delivered to
you are the result of the work of your personal attendants.  We are
the fact-finders, the need-gatherers for you each.  We are out in the
field, and we report back what our associates are experiencing such
that the melchizedeks are better able to develop lessons that are
applicable to a group and all the while remaining relevant to each
individual.  Many of us work as a team in this manner, so, though I
am less likely to convey in word to you, I am very active, as are my
	Mark:  We are grateful for your work with us in the field.
	I wonder at times when I recognize thoughts while TRing that I
have experienced that come up in the lesson.  Which came first?  Was
it my thought pattern from a previous teaching or was it my thought
that was worthy of further illumination?  It's an interesting
*	Darid:  Indeed it is, and I continue to enlarge my prior
	You each have discovered that your conversations prior to
meeting with us contribute significantly to the lessons that follow. 
As each personal teacher gathers throughout the week for the lesson
content, you are each contributing in your own right.  It is another
example of "as above, so below" and vice versa.  Your comment
illustrates that, while each of us is in varied levels of spiritual
advancement, we reckon all sources of increasing enlightenment as
valuable.  No teacher is ever unwilling to advance a thought simply
because it is considered to be another's original idea.  On your
world you as yet treat things of the mind like material objects that
can be possessed.  Throughout mansonia you will find that we are all
freely exchanging.  It is like we are running around with our boxes
of triangles and passing them out to one another continually.  
	Mark:  We as beginners should not reject out of hand any of our
thoughts as being unworthy of further illumination.
*	Darid:  Correct.  The only caution I give to you is that in
recognizing a thought pattern as yours to determine your motivation
and its expression.  I speak to you and to any others who transmit. 
We generally must use your native language and more specifically your
conceptual frameworks.  Therefore it is not surprising to find your
thought patterns being expressed by us.  But you have no doubt
noticed that sometimes your patterns of thinking are rearranged by a
celestial teacher for new insight.  Here is where you must guard
yourself from the influence of your motive.
	Was this expressed clearly?
	Mark:  I believe so.  It is my concern as a TR that when I hear
things come out that I recognize from some other place, I become
concerned that the channel has been compromised or become impure
somehow.  But I think I am going to learn that in sincerity is
pureness.  I assume you speak of motivation.
	Darid:  Yes and, as a demonstration of this, I am going to
express Jonathan's reflection upon spraying lacquer.  One who sprays
a finish is always desirous that the final film be free of
impurities, yet, as he has noticed, that never happens.  This is
likewise true of our communication process with you.  We do have to
live with the flecks that get into the finish itself.  But we also
know that experience in life is the rubbing compound that can remove
these impurities and polish the finish to create the intended result
in the long run.
	Does this help?
	Mark:  Very much.  So in an effort to be as pure a top layer as
possible, you recommend to continually check motivation and sincerity
as filtering mechanisms?
*	Darid:  Yes.  If I return to my first comments on dancing, each
of you has a life history that we could say determines your dance
style.  When we hand you a dance pattern to undertake, you each will
give flourishes which are distinctly your own from your training. 
These are okay.  Motive and sincerity are the checkpoints for you in
discerning whether you are adding a flourish to a sequence or
rewriting a sequence to suit your own needs.  
	Mark: Thank you very much.  That's beautiful.  I appreciate
your comments today.
*	Darid:  I am delighted to have spent this time with you all.
*	Elena (Mary):  There is a lesson here regarding the art of
living.  Through your interaction with the triangular, triad
relationships you can develop an artfulness to your living which
involves balance.  Balance is what the triads speak to.  The art of
living comes from achieving a balanced approach as you go about the
process,  engaging yourself in your life consciously through the use
of your faculties of body, mind, and spirit; and approaching the
values of truth, beauty, and goodness through virtuous application of
your desires and wills. So, practice the dance of life, the artful
expression of yourself in a conscious way that reflects the true
beauty of your goodness. 
*	Lester (Mark):  Yo, Lester here. One more thing.  I've just got
one word for you guys, just one thing that you can't do without and
that is the joy of the experience.  Don't forget, as studious as you
are and as hard as you try to learn these lessons, they will all come
to you.  You will possess each and every one of them.  That is not
what the issue is.  The issue is with what attitude will you go
through this journey?  With what sense of satisfaction will you
portray yourself to those around you?  That is your challenge, my
friends.  So, be about this business of spirituality but be about
this business of joy and love around you.  Take this inspiration from
me today as I so freely and lovingly give it to you.  Show joy, show
love, show peace to all those around you.  It is what will matter in
their lives, not what you know or what you will grow to know, or what
they know, but the joy with which you can share it.  Go out and have
some fun.
