CELESTIAL NIGHTS RETREAT
Cape San Blas, Florida
Late night, February 20, 1999
Teachers: Merium, Aaron and Will
T/R/'s: Gerdean and Bob Devine
MERIUM: I heard someone ask for a bedtime story. I am Merium. I am your big
sister, and I am the storyteller.
RACHEL & GROUP: Hi, Merium.
MERIUM: All my lovely children, how you delight us. I have been sitting here
with my peers, other teachers, enjoying your party. We have been observing
your mortal behavior.
GROUP: (Uproarious laughter) Please bring us to a higher level!
RACHEL: Sorry, Merium.
MERIUM: That is quite alright. We are long accustomed to you children.
GROUP: (Uproarious laughter)
MERIUM: Many times we wait not just moments, not just hours, but lifetimes.
And so we are bemused by your delight in one another and it is indeed a
delight to us to acknowledge your revelry in good faith and in good will of
your fellowship through Christ Michael. It is altogether seemly that you
should frolic as joyous children. I had observed some of my elders here
observing how hedonistic your behaviors can be
GROUP: (Loud chuckles)
and someone brought up the subject of the golden calf, but
GROUP: (Loud dismayed laughter) None of us!
I reminded them that these delightful children are Father's
and I am accustomed to playing on the floor with my children, as I have said
many times, and so they have sent me out to greet you, for I understand you.
I am a child myself. I am perhaps a little older, but truly not much wiser.
But at any rate, your shenanigans have been very much like healthy children
scampering after a big family picnic, excited on spirits of one sort or
GROUP: (Laughter) Whoops!
and reluctant to settle down to hear your bedtime story and to say
your prayers, but we have come now at your invitation to address you and to
help you get tucked in so that you will be able to sleep peacefully, knowing
that on the morrow your Son will rise again and you will bask again in the
gaity and the peace that is yours because we are loved by our Eternal
You are delightful children. I am glad to be your friend. I will move aside
and allow another, perhaps elder teacher, to address you.
GROUP: Thank you, Merium. Good night.
AARON: Greetings, friends. I am Aaron. It is my pleasure to be present
your pleasantries this evening. You have been moving to the harmonies this
evening and in this light I would like to direct your thoughts to a different
sort of harmony, that harmony which is the interaction of two personalities
with each other. Each interaction you face is an opportunity to play the
instruments you have been given and we have been pleased to recognize that
are willing to face each other with high intent, even amidst your human
The lifting of your will into alignment with God's will is the tuning of your
instrument so that you may someday play in an orchestra that tours the
universe. Recognize that your opportunities are endless, that no one moment
can identify your eternity, and that your moments of purely human pleasure,
while being rudimentary to the eyes of spirit beings, bring you into a
grounding place such that you recognize your roots, only do we like to point
out that you are capable of rising from the material to the spiritual
progressively, so please do not see our wording as being disciplinary so much
as to point out our own efforts at understanding human behavior.
You are here for a purpose, to fellowship with God's family and to enjoy one
another and you have been doing this admirably. Simply keep in mind that the
transition forward can be aided by your moments of reversion. Your energy is
wonderfully vibrant this evening. That is all.
GROUP: Good night, Aaron. Thank you.
LUGENIA: Were we going to have a bedtime story? Tell us a story. Merium is
MERIUM: How demanding you are, child!
MERIUM: Have you not heard that we tell the same story again and again?
GROUP: (Mocking laughter)
MERIUM: The fascination of the bedtime story is not the story but the ritual
of telling the story. I will tell you this story, Princess, and that is that
you have shown us in your behaviors this evening, in coming together around
this hearth, this fire, that you know how to lift up Urantia. By your group
purpose this evening, you have mastered yourselves sufficiently, you have
given in to your spirit hunger, you have brought yourselves encouragement by
your music, by your psalms. You have joined hands and done a ring-around-
rosey that has enabled you to be still sufficiently to hear again the
story ever told. You are our children and you are greatly loved.
Now, as you go off into dreamland, as you think about your hopes for
as you think about your regrets of yesterday, think about these things in a
magnified fashion and think about the hopes of the universe for you and for
your fellows. Think about the hopes of your fellows. Do they have the same
horizon that you have? Do they know the same joys? Do they have the
assurance of sonship? Are they privy to the same bedtime story that you
savor, that you discard as having heard before?
This story has saving grace, and you have in you the ability to bring this
story to other children who cry themselves to sleep at night for they feel
they are alone. How out heart wrings for these babies who sit on the
of humanity not even knowing to knock, not even knowing they can come in if
they but knock.
The Master has called you to go out and find his lost sheep. Find his
and welcome them into your hearth, your home, the home that Michael has
provided and that we are provided and that we are happy to play in and to
serve in, that we belong to as his children.
Once upon a time there was a little girl who longed for a blue dress.
SOMEONE: (Something about) a red dress.
MERIUM: That is all.
WILL: Yes, I am Will, your friend and teacher. I have few words tonight,
did want to extend my greetings to you. Thank you for your journey to this
place of union. Keep singly in your mind this evening before you go and lose
consciousness, if you would, the union of spirit with soul. Your embrace
one another is reflective of degrees of spirit development that has been
by your eye upon the Father, your internal Guide, your truest Companion. If
you would spend a few moments in stillness this evening, remembering the
ultimate Source of your unity, I would be grateful, as this is our purpose in
coming to you, and thus my evening's mission is fulfilled. Welcome to
GROUP: Thank you, Will. Good night.
