>HAM'S ADDRESS TO THE URANTIA FAMILY
>Greetings, my friends, my beloved ones. Our greatest
>desire is not that every person should necessarily believe
>or accept the teachers or our words. Our greatest desire
>is a simple one -- it is that we should learn every day
>to love one another a little more.
>I come bringing you no great announcement. I come in
>humility, in service to you, my friends, my children.
>I come bearing the love of the Father, and I come offering
>words of love to you. There are many children here who
>have taken the first steps in love by allowing our
>instruction to help guide their steps in small ways
>upon the journey that you all are taking toward the Father.
>We, the teachers, wish to extend our profound gratitude
>to you children. We are very humbly proud of each one who
>has taken a step in faith that has brought you here today.
>We wish to bring you words of comfort; we wish to bring
>you words of hope; to help you develop your trust in the Father; to
>help you develop your trust in each other.
>The Father has sent out one mandated task -- that you
>all must find in your hearts the resolve to attempt: BE
>YOU PERFECT EVEN AS I AM PERFECT. And children, He did
>not expect you to do this by yourself. Vast are the numbers
>of teachers. Vast are the numbers of angels and other
>planetary helpers who have come into this world to help
>you begin the task of your eternal lives.
>We come to serve, to help you. This world is a planet
>of the walking wounded, and Michael in his benevolence
>and purity of purpose has sent as many teachers as can
>be received, to help each one of you -- each one of you --
>overcome the wounding in your lives that has been brought
>through no fault of your own.
>Michael is sending with his teachers the Bread of Life
>and the Spiritual Water that will truly quench your thirst
>forever. He asks but one thing: He asks that you be willing
>to open your hearts just enough to allow yourselves to
>receive his love and to allow yourself the willingness
>Your anxieties, your fears -- all these things are known
>to us. We know of your difficulties, your sorrows, your
>broken hearts. We know of all the various ways in which
>you hide from yourselves and from others -- and yes,
>children, from the Father. We know how hard your lives
>are, for most of us have lived lives very similar to yours
>when we were in the mortal state. Michael in his wisdom
>knows the value of this experience when it comes to teaching.
>We offer our help freely and you are all free to take
>it, to take it later, or to wait until the mansion world
>experience, when you will receive teachers in that estate.
>If there are any questions I would gladly discuss these
>things with anyone who wishes to.
>Q. Hello teacher. (Greetings.) in our wonderful book
>it is written that our immediate planetary supervisors
>advocate the inauguration of measures to foster and conserve
>the higher spiritual types of Urantia. This is page 1207 for
>the record. Could you please give us examples of what types
>of measures they are referring to which help to foster and
>conserve the higher spiritual types that are diminishing
>Ham: Certainly This small sentence actually refers to
>many efforts on many levels -- everything from the prevention
>of warfare to the many ways that the family is being fostered
>and conserved by the angels and Midwayers. But the greatest
>way to foster and conserve spiritual beings is to feed their
>spirituality, and all the rest takes care of itself.
>The Urantia Book itself was probably the main method that
>this being referred to in that short but potent sentence.
>Is that helping your understanding? (Partially so. Thank you.)
>Q. Hello Ham. Is the Teaching Mission an adjunct to
>personal revelation or an amplification to epochal
>Ham: It is both, yes. Epochal revelation impacts upon
>the individual the 'personal revelation' as you of course
>have experienced in your reading of the Urantia Book, but
>yet, we teachers desire to be more like helpmates. We are
>not directly involved in your experience with Father,
>which would come under the realm of auto-revelation. We
>foster your relationship with the Father, but we do not
>intervene. We do not come between you and God.
>We are merely teachers who decide to help you bring
>that spirituality that you are receiving from the Father,
>help you understand it, help you apply it, and to steady
>you on your path. We are assigned to teach, not to reveal
>the Father, for the Father reveals Himself with you each.
>Q. My name is Mark and I'm part of a study group in
>Manitoba, Canada. We received a letter from your group,
>a message from yourself, saying that Manitoba, Canada,
>was the spiritual center of the planet Urantia, and that
>we were to receive a teacher by the name of Richard Rowe
>in 1992, and we haven't heard anything since. Can you
>explain what its all about?
>Ham: Certainly. The word for your location was an error
>in the transmission of planetary headquarters. However,
>we, the teachers, are aware of your group, your small
>group. We are always willing to teach when you are willing
>to receive. Be cautioned my son, for you are doing very
>well, and yes, a teacher is assigned to you. However, be
>assured that love is the message and the essence and
>the substance of her teaching. Is this helping your
>Same Q'er: It's not very clear, but I do not understand
>why a message of that specification could be in error.
>Ham: Errors in the transmitting process are certainly
>possible. I am an imperfect being. Rebecca is an imperfect
>being. All of you here are imperfect beings, and therefore
>errors are always a possibility. But, son, what is important
>is proceeding in the Spirit, proceeding with faith, with
>beauty, and goodness.
>Same Q'er: I understand. The thing is, I have a mind
>that always asks me to clarify things...it has to clarify
>an error. I accept the error, that its wrong, imperfect.
>I don't understand why the error is bringing conflict
>between specific things, because when we make errors as
>human beings we usually try to figure out why the error
>was made, to correct it. This is a correcting process
>you are doing. I am still looking for the correction in
>Ham: I have given it, this correction. What is it that
>you are asking? (Thank you.)
>Q. Ham, this is just a simple question
>Ham: Certainly. There is of course a simple answer
>It is Michael's will. But, I know you are desiring some
>more detailed explanation. Many events have occurred
>in conjunction: the final adjudication of the Lucifer
>Rebellion, the opening of your planetary circuits, and
>the will of Michael to bring his beloved world back into
>the realms of light, from the darkness into which it was
>cast. Is this helping? (Yes, thank you.)
>Q. I'm pretty nervous to bring my question to you, Ham.
>I am nervous because my question has potential to be
>offensive. When I first got the UB I was in fear because
>I was scared it was evil, and I was almost now feeling a
>similar fear. I can't help but think of Adam and Eve when
>that default happened. There, were two human beings that
>were supposed to be superior that were misled. I desire
>to follow the golden rule, as I can understand every one
>probably here does
Is there a way you can ease my fears?
>Ham: Yes. Daughter, you are a beloved child of the
>living, eternal, infinite, and universal Father. You must
>open your heart to His tender ministrations. Believe
>with all your heart that you are loved, and that you are
>loved as if you were His only child. There is no fear
>there. Allow the Master to hold you in His arms. Allow
>Him to stroke your hair and to rock you like a child,
>like a baby. Relax into His love; receive His love. Be
>at peace -- find peace -- find words of love and peace
>and allow yourself to gradually give your fear to God--
>give your fear to Michael--it is not something you have
>to carry, because you 'are' safe, you are surrounded by
>angels. There is nothing -- nothing on Earth -- that can
>truly harm a God-knowing and Son-believing woman
>such as yourself. That is all.
>Q. Ham, if I understand this correctly, the Lucifer
>Rebellion has finally been adjudicated? (Correct.) The
>circuits have been opened? (Correct.) The teachers have
>arrived to try and assist us in the process of connecting
>with Father? (Correct.) What is it exactly that you would
>advise the people here on the planet to do to help foster
>a loving countenance among the people? What is it that we
>Ham: Spiritual power is a wonderful thing. Spiritual
>power multiplies itself. If you give love, share love,
>receive love freely among your friends, it multiplies
>many times so that this love that you are giving, this
>love that you are sharing -- though it may seem a small
>thing -- in actuality it is growing, it is growing on
>its own. You are simply planting seeds, spreading seeds,
>as you go. Allow the Father to do the rest. Is that helping?
>Q. What does the "opening of the planetary circuits"
>mean? "Planetary circuits" is vague to me. What does
>that mean? Is it anything other than partial individual circuits? How
>would we see evidence of that?
>Ham: Yes. The circuits allow the spiritual help -- the
>teachers and the many others who are flooding into your
>world -- it allows them to communicate with each other
>over distance. And, of course, allows communication over
>long distances to other worlds. It would have been
>impossible to attempt the great spiritual upliftment of
>the world without the spiritual circuits being open. This
>is a massive undertaking. It is difficult and very involved,
>because we of course are involving the entire planet,
>entire world and its billions of people. How you may see
>evidence is how there has always been evidence -- spiritual
>fruits manifested in your fellows. There is no other
>evidence of God. That is all.
>Q: Alright, in the (Urantia) book it says we are supposed to
>receive a Magisterial Son. When is that supposed to happen?
>Ham: Yes, in time a Son will come. You need not concern
>yourselves with this future affair at this time however.
>I cannot predict the hour because I do not know the hour
>of this coming. So children, concern yourselves with your
>own spiritual progress, with your own growth. Don't worry
>about the plans of the Fathers--the great ones who actually
>do plan these things. That is all. Is this helping? (Yes.)
>Q: Ham, I perceive what you speak is truth, but then I
>also perceive truth has already been passed. So why do we
>need you to tell us this truth?
>Ham: Son, every person has different spiritual leadings,
>different things that they can identify with, that they
>can relate to, and that will help that person on their path.
>You may not need a teacher. You may not want a teacher, and
>this is fine -- this is your path. You yourself must decide
>what you need when you need it. There is no one to decide
>this for you. Is this helping? (Yes.)
>Q: Ham: I can assume, as so many people would say, this
>method that has been chosen for the teachers to come ... you
>know, we all have the same book, we all see the same words
>on the same page
but this method is so fraught with errors
>on the part of the transmitters and it creates great skepticism
>among the people. Why should such a method be chosen and
>Ham: All truth as it is imparted to the material mind
>contains varying levels of what you would perhaps term
>error or impurity. There is no perfect revelation, no
>perfect teaching method aside from your own personal
>experience of God. It is our desire that you each should
>learn to perceive truth with the morontia soul so that
>all the mind errors and problems with simply... the sensory
>mind, can be somewhat eliminated, but not completely,
>because you are mindal creatures and the mind is always
>You humans tend to believe what you see with your
>eyes, and doubt what you feel with your heart. We desire
>the opposite -- to believe what you feel with your heart,
>with your soul, and doubt what you see with your eyes.
>Faith means to believe in something so real that all
>the evidence, all the sensory evidence to the contrary,
>cannot dissuade you from the truth that you know with your
>soul. So you must discern the words of truth with the method
>that can best do that, with your soul, with your heart, with
>your morontia being. Is this helping? (Yes. Thank you.)
>Q: Ham, there are some of us who have trusted enough
>in the personal correction process that we have allowed
>ourselves to utilize the best of our abilities the
>assistance offered. It occurs to me, in my discussions
>with other individuals who have also experienced profound
>changes in our lives, that it is a very individualized
>process that occurs. The teachers work with the individual
>in the place that they are, and the individual chooses
>what errors, what perceptions need to be changed. In some
>cases faultingly and unknowingly, and in others cases they
>are calculated. This is where I am. This is what I need
>to know. Would you expand upon your approach to working
>with the individual and what you would call personal
>correction, or what we have come to call personal
>correction? Thank you Ham. Thank you for your great
>assistance in my own life.
>Ham: Certainly daughter. What you term personal correction
>is simply recognizing what are obstacles to love. Everyone
>has obstacles to receiving the full, the complete love of
>God. I dare say if you were receiving the full and complete
>love of God you would be fused. Yes, fused. What we desire
>is to simply help you recognize the places where you are
>not receiving love, where you have fear of receiving love.
>Sometimes you children forget that love is a powerful
>force. It is not something light, something ethereal. It
>is a powerful spiritual reality and as you interact with
>love, love changes you. We simply try to help you cope,
>help you understand those changes that are occurring. We
>do not change you. Love changes everything. That is all.
>Is that helping? (Yes.)
>Q: Quick question--I don't know if this is addressing
>you or not. Some people might wonder why Rebecca wears a
>bandanna over her eyes. Is that something you require or
>is that something that is a benefit to the TR personality
>that is transmitting for us?
>Ham: I believe it is to aid Rebecca's concentration,
>nothing more. (Thank you.)
>Q: If one wishes to receive a teacher does that
>necessarily mean that in any way, shape or form you also
>have to be involved in the transmitting and receiving
>process with this Mission, or is it simply a matter
>of having a recognizable personality to, in addition
>to individual relationship with God?
>HAM: Son, there are no requirements. This is not boot
>camp. However your relationship with your teacher evolves,
>however you are comfortable with your teacher is wonderful
>for the teacher, and the teacher will accommodate you in
>your needs. It is not for you to accommodate the teacher.
>Q: Ham, I sometimes think that instead of a "teaching
>mission" you should have called this the "therapy mission."
>[Laughter.] I don't say that to be sad about it, but it
>helps so many people as we all know. My real question is
>what can you do for us who participate to help us overcome
>our insecurity and defensiveness. Because others do not
>agree with our participation in the Mission, we seem insecure
>and defensive with others. How can you help us to overcome
>this -- to reach out and accept those who do not accept
>this -- for I would think that in love - that would be the ultimate
>goal and that is what you would want?
>Ham: Yes. Most of the teachings of the man Jesus were
>to go against the natural inclination. When you are rejected
>it is most natural to feel defensive and feel afraid -- to feel
>uncertain. But the Master would say
"Go boldly forth;
>proclaim the good news as you know it to be true."
>Sometimes your seeds will fall upon fertile ground, and
>there are times the ground is not prepared to receive it.
>This is nothing you can control, nothing you should control.
>Understand that your duty is simple: Love one another,
>return good for evil, return love for fear, return gentleness
>where there is a harsh word. It is difficult. No one said it
>would be easy, but you are making progress... fast progress,
>son. You know this and everyone who knows you also knows
>this. That is all.
>Q: Ham, I am interested in hearing your assessment of
>the progress of the Teaching Mission up to this point, and
>your assessment of the progress since the birth of the
>Fifth Epochal Revelation up to this time, and your thoughts
>about potential dangers that we might anticipate that might
>be coming towards us in the near future that we might be
>better able to deal with with your forewarning?
>Ham: It is not up to me to evaluate or assess the progress
>of the Teaching Mission. Those who do monitor these things
>tell me that everything is going according to the Father's
>will--to plan. Be unperturbed. Be unworried. Find peace
>in your heart in all these things, for they are truly in the hands of
>God. I am aware of your human striving, your human
>struggles, and this is natural. This is all a part of being
>human -- part of being a human being on this world.
>Love each other as we love you. Show each other your
>love as we show our love. That is what is important. Nothing
>else will change the world.
>Q: You state very beautifully the power of love, and for
>it to change peoples hearts and the potential to change
>the world. Is there also within your understanding of the
>power of love what we would call tough love, of naming
>or labeling injustice and wrong?
>Ham: Of course. As you ascend in your spiritual journey
>it becomes easier to distinguish truth in its higher forms,
>and, it is also easier to distinguish error in its many
>forms. To fight on the side of righteousness, on the side
>of goodness, is always a noble battle. Be at ease, for you
>do well, daughter. You are greatly loved by more than you
>will ever know in this life. That is all.
>Q: Ham, I thought I understood you to say earlier that
>there would be one teacher provided per person. Is that
>accurate? Considering that I am with a teacher, which is
>being in a group format, does that mean I also have a
>personal teacher as well?
>Ham: Yes, daughter. You do have a personal teacher as
>well. Absolutely. (Thank you.)
>Q: Ham, at this point I don't see any further questions.
>I guess my only thought would be if you could leave us with
>some last thoughts this evening? Perhaps you could give the
>essence of what you want the people to take from here tonight?
>That would be greatly appreciated.
>Ham: Certainly. If in the days ahead if you could open
>your hearts a little bit more every day to receive the
>Father's love as it continually pours out upon you, you
>will be doing the Father's will. That is the essence of
>my lesson tonight. The Father's will is the Father's love,
>and receiving the Father's love is doing the will of the
>Father. You all are beloved. You all are precious. Go in
>peace. Go in health. And children, find the emotional
>security to love yourself as we, the teachers, love you.
>That is all for tonight.
>I am profoundly grateful that you have come to hear
>my words. May you be at peace and go in love. Farewell.
