Tanare(Bill) Greetings. I am Tanare. I wish to lead you in the opening
Greatest, most wonderful Father/Mother Who dwells within us, Who dwells
within all intelligent creation, may these, our friends, be uplifted and
feel cherished as they fellowship with us this evening. I am pleased to be
in their presence and I ask that we all respect the sacred individuality of
each other person, and every other person this evening and for eternity.
May it be so. Amen.
Daniel(Bill): Greetings, my friends, I am Daniel, your teacher, your guide,
your friend, and your companion. Welcome back to our fellowship, Barbara..
You have been missed and your presence is a delight to me as well as your
peers assembled here this evening. Welcome, also, to the rest of you, and
I send a welcome to those of you whom you do not ascertain through mortal
eyes, but who are in here in large numbers.
One of the greatest joys of the ascension career is the discovery of loving
companionship and joyful partnership/teamwork. Yes, unfortunately, it is
often true on Urantia that true partnership and teamwork can be rare. Your
culture, in particular, is rife with competition to the point of ruthless,
ego deflating, personal worth degrading consequences. There is a healthy
competition which can be obtained between oneself and another in which
there is mutual admiration, sincere compliments and encouragement to the
other person to achieve their best. In this type of competition the winner
does not glory in their win and the looser does not wallow in their
despair. The whole process is taken rather lightly as the purpose of the
competition is to enhance one's motivation and effort. I wish to speak
this evening on meaningful work. Isaac is mildly distressed for he was
having a premonition that I might launch into some discussion of this topic.
My friends, I urge you to look up and forward for, fortunately, the
universe career is not merely a continuation of the mortal experience,
especially on a disordered and darkened sphere such as Urantia still is.
Ken: Yeah, but we are getting light, Daniel.
Daniel: This is true! This is true, and that's why I wish to shine the
light down the road a ways to show you things that are coming and therefor
give you inspiration for your remaining days as mortals. My comment about
companionship and partnership is an aspect of your lives now, which to some
degree and with great variability among individuals, you do experience; but
nothing like the quality of fine teamwork which we will be forever engaged
in as pilgrims ascending the universe, as Finaliters before our absonite
ministry and forever, I am taught, will we be in relationships with other
beings. The great joy of work on the morontial level and on planets as
they enter early stages of light and life consists in doing the work
together with others who share one's goals and one's enthusiasm and one's
value for the work itself.
The work is important for the work is all a part of the growth of the
Almighty Supremacy which is developing in the Supreme Being. Ultimately,
all meaningful work is part of the growth of the Supreme. What does that
mean, my friends? All meaningful work contributes to the actualization of
the finite God of experience, God the Supreme. In the Supreme are we all
connected and united and we glimpse this at times when we have a truly good
partnership or, in a larger context, good teamwork with others. We sense
there is something greater than just the meaning we give to our individual
lives when we, together, accomplish a greater goal. Yes, I tell you, there
is greater meaning. It is all very important. Nothing that we do that is
good is forgotten or lost.
While you must define work in your cultures as efforts which help sustain
your lives with food on the table, we have a much larger meaning to the
word in universe usage. There is division of labor on the morontia worlds.
It is not simply one grand tourist fling. Your work will be arduous but
joyful, important but not boring, exciting but not exhausting. It will be
what you look forward to from day to day with every bit as much enthusiasm
as you now greet your days of leisure. I realize that for many people
their work is the love of their life. But for those of you who have not
felt that satisfaction, I am telling you, you will experience it! It shall
be your possession someday.
Now all of this does not have to wait for pie in the sky, bye and bye.
Indeed, I desire to convey to you the idea that work as defined by service
is your calling despite whether you are "retired" or not. Service to other
people is your calling. It is the Godlike way to behave. It is the work
of the Father within who gives you the energy, the purpose, and the joy in
serving other people. It must come from an overflow, this service; it
cannot be manufactured or generated out of either guilt or duty. The
service that I am referring to, which we have spoken of often in this
mission, is a great pleasure. It is a natural overflow and outlet of your
personality. This is why we are always so joyous to be with you on these
evenings when you gather together, for it pleasures me to the greatest
extent to sit in your midst and share my passion and my understanding with
you. I now am going to allow a new speaker a few moments to address you.
One moment please.
Tanare(Bill): I am Tanare. Yes, I am Gwen's teacher, present with you at
Daniel's invitation. I will be allowed, as are my companions and peers,
time on occasion to address you.
I am not as familiar with this transmitting/receiving process for I am
relatively new to Urantia, having come here from afar, from a system on the
other side of our universe of Nebadon. I have been associated with what
you would consider to be "natural healing medicine". I struggle for the
right word...not naturopath, but holistic mind/body/soul connected
experience with energy transmission, nutritional balance, mental stresses,
many of these sorts of things and uniting them in people in such a way as
to effect healing. I apologize for the clumsiness of my words. I hope
that you can understand what I am intending to say.
So, therefore, as I come to this mission, and to this, my charge, I bring
with me these experiences and am offering to you all, when it would be
appropriate, further consultation, interaction, and training, perhaps, with
this that I can share. I hope that this little bit of background will
assist you in getting a feel for my person. Of course, I send my special
and warm greetings to my Gwen, who will, I am confident, become more and
more familiar with me. I want to thank you all for allowing me this time.
Group: Good evening.
Aaron(Bill): (spoken in a loud voice) I am Aaron, hello! Yes, you thought
you had perhaps gotten rid of me. (group gasps)......no, I'm joking. But I
am still here (group laughs) and I do warmly greet you all, my friends. I
have not been dilettante in my attendance, I simply have not taken the
opportunity to make my presence known.
As the subject of partnership and companionship was touched upon by my good
friend and colleague, Daniel, my nature was aroused by a subject so dear to
my heart and one which I have not conversed with you about lately.
Therefor it was decided that I should also... (TR makes faces of
disapproval)...I will change my words...share my wisdom with you this
evening. This may be stricken from the record but I will permit Isaac's
request so that you know what his grimaces and strange motions were all
about. I was going to say, "shoot off my big mouth", but he refused to
transmit those words (giggling and group laughter) He felt those words
would discredit my stature in the presence of the minds of others who do
not know me so well.(more laughter) But let us continue.
Actually, my friends, what has just happened says a great deal about
companionship, for here we have had this most interesting interaction
between myself and Isaac, and now, you all. You are all pleasantly emoting
as a consequence. You are feeling, I sense, that Aaron is not so bad after
all; that maybe he is a pretty nice fellow; that he can talk like he is one
of the boys and it has brought us closer together. So what I wished to
talk about, I have already demonstrated, and that is the need to take risks
in looking foolish with other people, so that your essential humanity, your
imperfection, your uniqueness, can spill forth.
What do you have to afraid of, that you should live behind walls of
propriety and hide your vulnerability from each other? Oh, I know that out
in the cold cruel world there is need for protection. But you see, my
friends, with true companionship those walls can be abolished. When you
hug another person you let go of the walls. You allow your bodies to
contact, firmly press. There is no barrier preventing you from sharing.
What's the consequence?...warmth, an overflowing sense of love, peace, a
calmness, a relaxation of tension, a security, a taste of the very nature
of the universe which is the perfect love of the First Source and Center.
I have missed talking with you these last few months and I promise I will
be with you again. Cherish your times together, my dear friends for it is
the very nourishment which you need so that you not wilt in the shadows of
self consumption. Now I have concluded my comments and I would turn over
this meeting to Daniel to moderate. However, I will be glad to respond to
inquiry or interact with any who might wish to relate to me. One moment.
Minearisa(Bill): I am Minearisa. I, also, wanted to greet you, my dears
and let you know that I, too, have not forgotten you. While I was here
last week, it was decided that my time would be postponed.
This teacher base is still valid and even though your numbers have come
down, as was discussed before, numbers per se are not the measure of worth.
They are not an indication of success or failure. What matters is how you
each grow and how you grow in cooperation with each other and all the
others whom your life touches on a daily basis. This is what matters: that
you go about doing good, even as our Master did; that you value each
individual's needs more than the speech you may be giving or the task that
you are being interrupted in; that you love others as Jesus Christ Michael
has loved you. Very well, please receive my love this evening and know
that it is a great joy for me to be associated with this teacher base.
Daniel, my friend, you may moderate the remainder of the time.
Daniel(Bill): Let us continue...I am Daniel. Are there questions or
comments that you would like to make this evening? The floor is open.
Virginia: Daniel, I would just like to say thank you for being present and
being so patient with the questions and comments that I have asked over the
last many years. I really appreciate the encouraging words that I listen
to from you and the other teachers. I hope you see more growth than I have.
Daniel: Leeta, my dear, you have no idea what a joy it has been to me to be
related to you all. I have stated this before, but I repeat it..this has
been the most satisfying teaching experience of my universe career. It
does not disappoint me, one day after the other, but continues to provide
me with growth potential and new experiences different than any I had ever
had as a mortal. I feel that you are much more impatient with yourself
than is warranted. No, I will be more direct. You, and all of you, are
far too impatient with yourself. It is not warranted, for you are all
growth seekers, truth seekers, you are marvelous children making great
progress! Long has it been true that you are walking, and not falling down
every other step. Certainly, you have much more growth to do...so do I!
But.....take the pressure off, all of you, and allow yourselves to rejoice
in your growth. Can you accept my words, Leeta, my dear?
Virginia/Leeta: Yes, Daniel. I thank you. I will have to work on taking
the pressure off.
Daniel: It is not your place to be your judge and it certainly is not your
place to be the judge of any other. That is not your job.
Virginia: It is easier not to judge others than it is to not judge myself.
Daniel: And it is easier for you to give praise and encouragement to others
than it is to give praise and encouragement to yourself. Do not beat
yourself up over these words, for you are pretty typical of the kind of
legacy that has been wrought by the rebellion. In other words, it is not
But, your world is changing, as Ken said earlier. Things are improving.
People are learning to encourage each other. Many people are doing a
better job with their children. There is progress, there is hope, and
there definitely is improvement.
Virginia: Thank your Daniel. I have another question, maybe two of them.
One is in regard to what Tanare has said. Do we have to make an
appointment with her and be sure Gwen is included so that we might have the
input she seems willing to give us about healing, holistic healing? How do
we generate that information?
Daniel: I can see that you are eager to know more about this information.
Tanare tells me that it is premature to do this at this time. Her
intention was to give background so that you could be thinking about these
potential situations. I cannot answer any questions about how, when, or
where she will proceed with these things. It is at this time too early to
say. But your interest is encouraging to us. Yes, it is her intention to
be partnered with Gwen, although that all depends upon free will choice and
the possible outworking of many factors.
Virginia: Thank you Daniel.
Daniel: You mentioned questions. Do you have another one?
Virginia: Well, I thought of one and then I thought that he is going to
tell us to work it out ourselves. But I was thinking in terms of George
Barnard coming down from Couer d Elaine and whether or not we should try
to make it a joint weekend with Woods Cross or whether we should have days
up here and five days down there. Just curious if the teachers had any input?
Daniel: You were right the first time. It is not our place to plan the
things that you have full capability of doing. That has to be negotiated
with George. You will all profit greatly, I believe, from your encounter
with him. He, also, will profit greatly by his encounter with you.
You, children, may sit around at times, and deem yourselves of little
importance on this planet and think that another and brighter start will
need to shine to light the way to the manger. But you are in error when
you think this way, for you all are stars capable of, and in many cases
currently involved in, leading others to a contact with the Christ child
who is within each of us as the Spirit of Truth. You will not know in any
adequate sense the importance that your life has had until you view it upon
resurrection morning. Of course you will not understand its significance
in an instant. You will review it for a long time as you learn afresh the
lessons of your mortal career. It will not be a time of dread, guilt, and
sorrow. It will be a time of appreciation, of blending and welding
meanings together to show you the incredible growth that your mortal lives
have embraced. Has this assisted you, my dear?
Virginia: Your words are always encouraging for all of us, Daniel. Thank you.
Daniel: I speak the truth, and truth is encouraging.
Ken: Daniel, I would like to take a little different tack here. Concerning
the rebellion, when the Lucifer rebellion occurred and Satania system was
cut off from the circuits, what happened to the planets that did not rebel.
Were they cut off as well, or the whole system?
Daniel: The rebellion was system wide. All planets were challenged to
choose between the Lucifer Manifesto and loyalty toward Nebadon as it
represented the universe at large. The system as a whole was severed from
the circuits connecting it to the constellation so that there was no chance
for Lucifer's doctrines to go beyond Satania as a system and infect any
others. But there were differences between planets based on the loyalty of
the planetary administration. The planetary Princes that resisted the
nefarious sophistries of Lucifer did not experience the isolation in the
same way that the rebellious planets did. There was circuitry within
Satania which was maintained for those planets whose leadership chose to
stay with Michael. But no planet was excluded from the controversy and no
will choice being was outside of the mutiny. Everyone in Satania had to
make choices. I have not a complete record of these things. I am giving
you some general information.
Ken: You answered my question. Thank you.
Virginia: Daniel, along that same line we have been told that rehabilitated
rebel midwayers might be returning to Urantia. Would you like to comment
on that rumor?
Daniel: Mercy is never exhausted until there is no longer reception for
mercy available in the mind of the individual toward whom the mercy is
extended. Any being who had joined the rebellion was offered mercy until
that mercy was finally refused forever. Many of the angels and midwayers
were led astray by their confidence in the brilliance of Lucifer and
Caligastia only to find out that they had been deceived, misled, and their
trust had been abused. The confusion that was rampant in this System of
Satania, which I was not a part of at the time, having come from another
system, was beyond our understanding, for we had never had such a thing.
So if there be rebel midwayers who have chosen to repudiate their
disloyalty and express their heartfelt, fully repentant, mercifully
resurrected love for their Creator, Michael/Nebadonia, should it surprise
you that they could be offered a meaningful ministry, and even possibly a
return to this planet? You will notice, however, that the text speaks of
rehabilitation often in terms of new work and not a return to former. If
it is to come to pass that rebel midwayers are welcomed back to Urantia,
this might be a measure of mercy beyond the standard procedure. My advice
is...let us all keep an open mind and if it should come to pass that this
rumor gains substance we can be sure that the wisdom of the very highest
sort has ordained it. These are my words.
Virginia: Thank you Daniel.
Daniel: And now I do take this moment for closure of this gathering this
evening. My TR is depleted and I honor his unspoken request to complete
our time together. My love to you all. Good evening.
Group: Good evening, Daniel.
