Andronason (Bill/Isaac): I am Andronason.  Greetings to you all.  We are
pleased to see your perception of truth embracing all facets of the
community of believers and the humanity of all peoples on this planet.
Indeed is the Fifth Epochal Revelation given to all peoples and not
confined to one religion.  The goal for this planet will be the knowledge
of God, which will sweep across all cultures, all languages, all barriers
in the commonality of siblinghood and family bonds.  This is inevitable and
will mark the aspect of the culmination of planetary evolution.

Whenever people pray with wider boundaries of the limits of their own
creeds, faiths, churches and even hearts, there is enhancement of the
essential connectedness of all will-creatures.  You are aware that the
commonwealth of intelligence embraces many orders of beings other than
mortal and in fact sweeps across the wide stretches of the vast universe of
universes from the very highest source to the lowest evolutionary worlds.
This is the cosmic family to which you all belong.  I, as a Melchizedek, a
local universe Son, find great joy in promulgating these truths, that even
though I have never shared planetary existence I am still your brother, and
together we are all children of one infinitely great and wonderful, loving,
intelligent Source of all that is.

Tonight we desire to embrace a wider truth in the presentation of Michael's
bestowal on Urantia because his bestowal was not limited to this sphere,
but embraced his entire universe.  In his oft-repeated prayers for unity he
expressed this essential and important truth that I have alluded to--that
we are all one cosmic family derived from the supreme parenthood of
Paradise Deity.  When you gather together each week to enjoy each other's
company and exercise comradery, you also embrace not only each other here
in this room, but a vast universe of brothers and sisters, of fellow
will-creatures.  One of the benefits that you obtain from this meeting is
to enhance your awareness of the diversity and reality of that which your
eyes cannot see, you ears cannot hear nor can you touch with your hands,
and yet your hearts make contact with us celestials, we who are not in
visible form.  

Michael was very much aware of the presence of the spiritual realm.  It was
his source of strength.  It was his ever-true compass.  It was his great
comfort, for among his brothers and sisters he did not have a peer with
whom he could share his difficult decisions.  Consequently he was in need
of comfort, guidance and strength from the spiritual realm.  His habit of
frequent prayer and communion with his Father forever stands as that ideal
for all men and women, even though they are not Paradise Creator Sons, for
his life was lived in a dual role as the Son of Man and as the Son of God.
He perfected his humanity by the complete reliance by his human mind on his
Divine Adjuster.  He made all his decisions from his human mind and
although he was and is a Paradise Son he did not use those prerogatives to
achieve his human perfection.  

Consequently he stands for all of you mortals as an attainable ideal; i.e.
his faith and his life are not out of reach of attainment.  He desires that
each of you be so unified in spirit with him and with your common
Father/Mother that you also will attain to that ideal alignment of
will-purpose with God so that you also can become perfect in your realm
even as God is perfect in his realm.  

Please understand that I am not expecting you to all attain the level of
perfection that our Savior, Jesus, attained, but I am trying to tell you
that it is not impossible or out of reach that you should reach this kind
of unity with your indwelling Adjuster.  On planets long advanced in light
and life many, in fact over half of the population, are able to achieve
this goal.  My words have seemed like a very high level of challenge to
some of you.  I only ask that you give them serious consideration.  We, on
our side, desire to foster light and life, and, as you know, it is possible
on an individual level.  It is possible on a group level.  We desire to see
many flames surging upwards from many parts of the globe, the flames of
spiritual passion and spiritual embrace.  And as these fires burn in
different places gradually the borders of those fires will enlarge and the
coming together of these many lights, these many fires of spiritual
passion, will embrace more and more people.    Gradually this planet will
move forward toward light and life.

To conclude my comments I wish to simply say that you need to be thinking
about and occupied with higher things rather than lower things.  While your
culture relies upon sensationalism for its attention-getting purposes you
need to be looking at a different kind of sensation—the sensation of
powerful love which is being manifested more and more throughout the world.
 While so much attention is focused on the negative and the animalistic
nature of cultures, occupy your minds with the higher thoughts, e.g. the
evidence of altruism, of spiritual service and of love which crosses
cultural boundaries, religions, languages, races and nations.  These things
are happening, and if you put your attention to them you will enhance the
process of their awareness to others.  I thank you for you serious
attention to my words, and I now step aside.  One moment please.

Daniel (Bill): Greetings, my friend,  I am Daniel, your teacher, your
guide, your companion, and your admirer.  It is always my pleasure to be
present with you as you make your weekly meetings, as you come together as
students in this Melchizedek classroom.  It is also my pleasure to see you
at work and at play, to be with you during the week, and sometimes to be
able to whisper in your ears and catch your attention.

Time goes on, that great gift from God that enhances the evolutionary
process and which allows the mercy-lag of justice.  The time of year is
fast approaching when Christianity celebrates the death and resurrection of
Christ Michael; a time when many people find renewed strength.  It is true
that your habit of spiritual growth on the path you have chosen is very
efficacious for you, very efficient, and it is understandable that some of
your scaffolding from the past is less than desirable as you now live your
lives from a more real and substantial level.  At the same time remember
that what you now remember as scaffolding was at one time your living truth
and your heart's desire.  As you remember where you have come from remember
also and realize that many others have not reached your current placement
and are truly gaining strength and value from the "lower level", as you now
see it.  Never look down upon others who are just beginning their spiritual
walk up the mountain of truth. (I do not say this to fault you for it is
not a problem that any of you have).  It is simply an attitude of
inappropriate competition that persists on this planet.  Better that your
attitude should be that you desire to help those a little behind you to
climb up higher and to see the greater view that spreads out before you

I desire now to terminate the formality of this evening so that you may
join in with your comments, questions, perhaps, and so forth.  The floor is
now yours.

Virginia: Teachers, this week I introduced Gandhi as the next hero from
Asia.  I have been trying to move around our planet in the classroom.  I
printed out 16 pages—(you probably know all this), of his beautiful quotes,
and it was just as if I was reading from the teacher lessons or from the
(Urantia) book.  And I couldn't but be reminded of the sentence in the book
that says there is someone now on your planet that has a very mature
Thought Adjuster.  I don't even remember the exact words, but he(Gandhi)
just seems like an incredibly spiritual, inclusive person having lived such
a long life that was very visible on this planet.  And the effect he must
have had to try to bring unity between the religions and the races, etc.  I
guess I am just asking for a comment.

Andronason (Bill): This is Andronason.  Indeed was Gandhi an exceptional
man who actually emulated our Master in his process of attunement with God.
 Consequently he transcended the barriers of culture and religion in his
insights and in his God-consciousness.  I am not permitted to comment on
the statement in the Urantia Book as to whether Gandhi might have been that
individual because that is not the point.  The point is that other people
in addition to Jesus have been able to follow the path that he followed in
his humanity and achieve this kind of spiritual growth and insight.  There
have been many individuals who have not reached the prominence of one such
as a Gandhi who have also emulated and followed closely in the path that
Michael gave—the living way, the living truth, the living life.  This is
all that I will say at this time.  Virginia, I hope that this is satisfactory.

Virginia: Of course.  Thank you.

Daniel (Bill): Other comments?  

Nancy (PamElla): Yes, please, I have actually a question, and it has to do
with something I have been thinking about over the last two weeks.  And
that has to do with understanding and wondering about how understanding of
others relates to understandings of ourselves, and wondering if one is
prior to the other, or it they are concurrent, or if one or the other leads
at different times.

Daniel (Bill): This is Daniel.  My dear PamElla, you are one with an
analytical mind and I love that aspect of you; and I enjoy your questions.
Actually the answer lies in the fact that no understanding of another
person is complete, for you are not that other person.  However, the more
that you understand your commonalties with another then the more accurate
is your understanding of that other person.   Therefore, the starting point
is self-understanding.  

The big lack on this planet at the present time is that aspect of the self,
which we have been addressing for these many years, that humanity comprises
both an animal nature and a divine nature.  I have stressed for years the
importance of understanding one's divine nature so that it can be the
ascendant of the two natures in an individual's experience.  As you
understand the mind of your Adjuster, your divine nature, you therefor
become more God-conscious, and as you become more God-conscious you become
more self-forgiving, self-accepting and truly motivated by the highest of
ideals and values.  When you gradually ascend to this greater and greater
understanding of yourself, with greater and greater acceptance and truer
motivation, as you in your divine nature over-shadow your animal nature,
this makes it more possible for you to understand others because you can
let go of the tendency to be judgmental while retaining discernment.  You
can truly begin to love those who you regard as enemies or who regard you
as an enemy.  You can also understand how limited people are who view their
range of choices only from the animal side of human existence and do not
know of the spiritual aspects which are possible were they to connect with
God-within.  In a sense, even though the source is self-understanding as
one recognizes their dual nature, yet, in experience, other people can
become teachers to you, and you will gain new understand of yourself as you
see it reflected in others. So there is this mutuality as well.  Does this
help you?

Nancy: That was an absolutely beautiful answer.  Thank you.  Yes, it does.
And I wanted to make one comment, and that is (and this is probably one I
should save for the TR for after.) but tonight I am seeing very clearly the
personality of Andronason coming through and the personality of you,
Daniel, come through, and it is really cool because I have missed
experiencing you as you since Debbie's been gone.  I am feeling you as you
more discernable and I really like that.  I know that has a lot to do with
the experience that the TR is developing; and so what I am liking is to
hear you Daniel, to experience you.  But I am sure that the TR is pleased
to hear that too.

Daniel (Bill/Isaac): Isaac is very happy to hear this, however he also
recognizes me, Daniel, in a more intimate sense that he used to.  Now we
are becoming very close—as I was with Deborah, who by the way, sends her
love and is rejoicing.

	Thank you for your comforting words, PamElla, and know that I resist the
temptation to terminate my career here with this group, (not that I have
bee offered a higher-functioning one), but I am so in love with you all
that for now this is a most blessed experience for me!  Your world of the
cross has an effect upon all of us teachers, especially those from more
advanced planets.  We truly yearn for your enlightenment, your progress,
your triumph over the struggles that are so severe and difficult on a
planet once in default and rebellion.

	My friends this TR is desiring to complete our experience, but I will
permit one more comment or question from someone else, if there is such a
question.  (None came forth.)

	Very well.  It is our custom these days to join in prayer to conclude our
meeting.  Let us all stand and join hands.  I would request another TR, if
they are willing to do this.

Daniel (Virginia): This is still Daniel. 

Christ Michael, we come to you with grateful hearts and encouraged souls
that the growth on this planet is one that pleases both you and the
Paradise Father.  We would ask that wherever there is truth being heard on
this sphere each human being would respond so that truly the era of Light
and Life will come.  We would ask that the concept of unity, even
diversity, might grow, and as you so stated so many years ago that one does
not have to believe the same to be a child of God.  May that message that
you stated so long ago be heard and be lived so that we all may see your
truth spread.  For we do ask it in the hope that you give to each of us as
we respond to your Indwelling Spirit.  Amen.
