*	Elyon (Jonathan TR):  Greetings to you all.  I am your teacher friend
Elyon.  Over the course of years I have returned to the subject faith, as it
is a
pillar in your spiritual structures.  We have linked it to trust and hope, and I
have linked it to purpose.  This point I wish to further address today.
	You all are sensitive and aware of the guidance about you that reaches into
you, that ministers to you.  This guidance does, by implication of the word,
provide direction and purpose.  Guidance not only inspires but it indicates. 
Faith that hopes and trusts is good for one seeking to receive, to become
informed, to become prepared.  Faith with purpose is one that proceeds.  Trust
always in your guidance, even though you are uncertain of your course.  The very
fact of your reception of direction will prove to you that subsequent
delivery of
direction by spirit ministers will ensue.
	The course of spiritual travel to a human being is not like that of travel
across a continent where you observe through your mapping systems the
courses you
may take to reach a destination.  Know that in the spiritual journey you are
traveling as the adventurers of a few centuries back did who were new to this
particular continent you are on.  They went forward -- I choose not to say
"blindly" for they were keenly tuned in to their senses for direction, for
for safety, and for success.  But they went forward without knowledge.  The
nature of the spiritual journey is that not only will you discover what is
you, but you will participate in the creation of realities that until this time
were nonexistent, required your presence, your personal reality to become real.
	Anyone can write a song, but the song that is written is written by that
particular artist.  In the spiritual ascent anyone can reach Paradise, but the
manner in which you reach Paradise is unique to you.  The Father relishes the
experience of that unfoldment that you provide Him.  When you have received
direction, guidance, and purpose, grab your faith and move forward.  You do know
at this time what to do and you will know in subsequent times what to do then.
	Thank you for receiving my words.  I will be present throughout this

*	Tomas (Gerdean):  I am Tomas. I have a follow up to Elyon's words regarding
the faith path.  It has to do with one of your words called "gumption".  In this
case it is the gumption of the heart.  The heart that we speak of is the
heart of
your spiritual nature, the seat of your soul, the divine love of the Father. 
This is the heart of your immortality, your infinity.  In some ways perhaps it
will compare to your emotional heart, but in the main it is the greater heart. 
It is the heart depicted in Catholicism on the breast of Christ radiating light
and heat from his bosom.  This heart which you all hold within you is the heart
that has your faith in its foundation.  Your gumption is your faith in action,
for, whereas you may not have the courage to act or speak in the lesser heart,
you are brought to courageously hold forth with your higher heart.
	The discussions this morning touched upon sacrifice.  Sacrifice is
interwoven into your fibers like much of your cultural conditioning, and I would
give you a window to understanding your use of sacrifice in the context of our
conversation.  Your heart gumption is that which will act on the light of truth
boldly, confidently, courageously, while that which holds you back from speaking
forth that which you know to be true would be a sacrifice.  For some reason you
have chosen to sacrifice your opportunity to speak up, to speak out, to
to reflect, to express.  Some element of your anxiety has caused you to
that which you would give forth if your heart had been given the opportunity to
	In your reflections now if you are inclined you may look to see how you are
your own censor and how you often censor the spirit within you.  You
sacrifice it
and disallow its expression not always because of fear,  sometimes out of
But there is sacrifice entailed when you don't allow your heart to have that
rein over your life.  The gumption of the higher heart is that which will enable
you to fearlessly forge your way through the confusing maze of life into greater
clarity.  Following your heart is how you establish new levels of faith.
	You are not alone, nor do you need to always look to find your power in
your celestial companions.  You may not recognize the guidance of the Adjuster,
the God within, but you can feel your own impact, your own soul's response.
heart, your higher heart, knows the Spirit of Truth.  It knows value; it
recognizes goodness.  It sees through hypocrisy and disguise to the heart of the
matter.  You can recognize divinity through the eyes of your higher heart. 
Having faith in it allows you to walk courageously as a part of divinity, as a
coworker, as a coconspirator, a co-creator.  You are not walking blindly; your
heart is leading.
	I will let my heart lead me off the podium in gracious support of our peers
who also wish to join with you  today.

*	Machiventa  (Mark):  I would join with you today at this powerful
confluence of light on this world which is this gathering of souls inclined to
shining the light of the Father out freely to the world.  This is
Machiventa, and
I would offer you some imagery today regarding light and its importance and its
	You are all familiar with the image of the lighthouse and the importance of
this strong beam of light used by many for purposes of direction and
You have expressed at your meeting this morning the oft repeated desire of how
you may be effective in your lives to be about this business, the joy and the
love that you have come to understand as part of your spiritual growth. I would
liken each of you to the beacon located in a lighthouse and that your purpose as
this shining beacon is to maintain a steady presence emulating this love light
you have come to know.  By serving this purpose and remaining fixed and constant
in your purpose you provide many things to many other individuals. To the
majority who might pass you by as a vessel sailing by on the ocean, you
provide a
reference point, a point of certainty in an unsure environment, an article of
direction, a means from which to navigate.  In this way, by your very presence
standing firm on your position many individuals are helped along in their
as they may simply pass by you.  Your very presence is an assistance to them.
	There is also another select group of individuals who will seek you out as
those who seek out the lighthouse and desire to put the effort in and make the
ascent to the top and there stand with you and gaze out upon the world as you do
and see the world from your perspective and take with them the sense of
power and
light which you provide so that they in turn may go  be a beacon of light at
their posts at which they may stand firm and be guidance to others.  A darkened
street can be a formidable obstacle to approach, but when illuminated by a
streetlight, a steady glow, they are enabled to find their way through even the
mist and the fog.
	When you come together as you are now assembled you are recharging your
batteries that your beacons may be bolstered, that your beams may shine brighter
and truer.  When you return to your posts, diligent to your tasks of shining
lights, you provide this direction.  You provide orientation to those around you
who would see you as a fixed point in their travels and can see themselves then
in relation to you.  This is an example of the very roles each one of you plays
in your lives and the significance you are to those around you.  Some may just
use your stability as their security and may never come closer to you than to
pass by, using you as their reference.  Others will desire to know you more
intimately, will ascend the steps to your lighthouse and will commune with you
there overlooking all.
	I thank you for this time and appreciate each one of you and your
participation in this, our classroom.  I applaud your senses that you be
motivated to become active in your lives and in your ministries.  We will stand
by you in these efforts and attempt at times such as this to illuminate a
for you.  Thank you.

*	Tomas:  Are there questions?
	Mark:  At the conference it was discussed that both TRing and healing might
be jump started, helped along, with an experienced individual in conjunction
one desiring to be involved.  Is it feasible to work with each other to kick
start another?
*	Aaron (Jonathan):  I greet you; I am Aaron.  I jump at the opportunity to
be in your company and to address your question.
	I observe that each one of you is sensitive to the admonition of Jesus that
you take the plank from your own eye before you remove the sliver from another. 
Let me manipulate this phrase and reverse it to assure you that your inquiry
about jump-starting another is the revealing of your accomplishment.  What you
have worked toward and established in your own being is worth sharing, and I do
not mean this simply  in regard of "show and tell", but rather of transfer that
another may also possess what you have attained.  It is the plank and sliver of
accomplishment.  All that you gain is for giving.  What I would add to this is
that of caution, and that is to be rightly discerning of one's receptivity. 
Faint within the soul of each creature is that flicker of knowledge, that sense
that there is a real connection to the divine.  But that minuscule understanding
seems to be in a huge room that lacks experience.  All it takes is the hand of
another to enlarge that sensitivity and to foster the engagement in oneself with
the energies and the love of the divine.
	I will let my associates continue addressing you.

*	Merriam (Gerdean):  This is Merriam.  I have a few remarks about the
subject.  It has to do with the intended goal of your world, that plateau of God
consciousness and God revelation that would allow for you to be a representation
of divinity in your life.  It would be and will be a time when our Father is
honored and acknowledged on a constant basis and wherein your loving touch and
contact with each other will instill those healing energies and vibrations that
give rise to perfect health.  These are our goals in the evolution of this
The more you pursue these goals and bring them into being in your lives, the
we have realized our goal, the greater inroads we are making, the better reality
has a foothold.  So, of course yes, these are all wonderful contributions and
ought to be upheld.
	I would like to add that it is also acceptable for you all to engage in and
enjoy a certain definite satisfaction as a result of your concrete faith in your
relationship with our Father and His will for you that reveals itself in your
life and through your associations with your fellows.  There is a rightful
satisfaction to be had in knowing that you are contributing to the betterment of
the world and the universe.  A gesture, a stroke, a smile; all of these, as
elemental as they are, are the kinds of things that foster reality.  In this it
is not smug, it is not self aggrandizement, to accept as part of your role, part
of your giving, part of your nature, part of your inheritance to realize,
and distribute as a common practice in your very rich lives.  The sooner we
this, the sooner it will be spread like the benign virus that love is.  We
advance, we ascend into greater beauty, goodness, and truth.
	That is all.

*	Elyon (Jonathan):  Elyon, once again.
	Teaching and sharing can be described in multiple ways.  I am going to
illustrate the pattern through this TR using an analogy he is comfortable with. 
When a musician is struggling to learn a musical composition, there is a
drive to
just know how to execute a verse or a chorus.  Then, upon grasping that
there is the desire to be able to go through the arrangement to the end.  Soon
there is a stirring to play through the arrangement successfully with all
such that the composition is rightly portrayed.  Then the desire arises that
another may experience the pleasure of hearing that composition as it was
intended by the author.  Every musician knows the increased joy to observe the
audience sing along, to want to participate, to want to be counted in as one who
is delivering the song experience.
	As a teacher in this mission, I am overjoyed when my student associates,
yourselves, sing along.  But there is an increased satisfaction when one wishes
to learn how the verse and the chorus are made up and how to play the entire
song.  We have and are spending time doing this together.  For any one of
you who
has taught a tune to another there is finally the supreme pleasure of sitting
back and watching a student play that song you learned once and receiving
the joy
of another's accomplishment.  This is the goal of us teachers teaching
Your question patterns itself in this same manner.
	That is all.
