Prayer by Daniel: The unity of your hands is the unity of your hearts
expressed through touch. You choose to relate to each other and not to
draw back into isolation. You choose to do Gods Will. For it is His will
that His universe be united and share the love which created it. I am
Daniel, let us pray.
Eternal Father, Infinite Spirit, Eternal Son, one God in three persons. We
Your children on the plane of Time and Space, stand in awe of Your creation
and of Your great purpose. We look Paradise ward and we wait with great
anticipation to one day stand in Your presence, oh great Triune Deity. But
while we wait we have You present with us as we progress; and so we do not
wait at a distance, but we commune with You now in this holy moment, this
May the love I feel for these my brothers and sisters reflect the purity
and genuineness of You, the Source of all love. May our eyes follow the
Master Son who walks before us, and may our feet fall into step with Him.
So be it, Amen. (group: Amen, thank you Daniel)
I am Daniel. I will be the speaker this evening. Greetings my friends, my
beloved students. It is an immense pleasure for me to sit here with you in
this intimate and easy relationship which you share with each other. When
you sit at a table close to each other, as the table provides by virtue of
its size, your proximity enhances your intimacy and breaks down the
barriers which are always there, ready to re-assemble when the heart is in
doubt as to the value of risk of intimate sharing. So you do well to
position yourselves so that physical distance does not add to the
tendencies to withdraw.
Yes, tonight's commentary, or rather I should say meditation, will be on
overcoming the natural tendency to isolate. But, you say, is it a natural
tendency to isolate? Or is not more natural to associate? On a normal
world the natural tendency is to associate, for isolation is the result of
fear and hurt. It is a measure of a lack of nurturance which has occurred
in ones life history. Remember your origins my friends, this is Urantia,
one of the isolation planets. The Lucifer rebellion was at its heart a
decision to isolate rather than associate with the universe government.
The pride of intellect and the seduction of sophistry lead even such a
great being as a Lanonandek son to go astray and to decide to isolate
himself and those he could persuade to see reality in like manner to
himself to join him in this disastrous, and initially terribly unfortunate,
So your planet was cut off from the association with the other planets.
Your planetary government was only in association with those other rebels,
and this experience of separation altered your history for the last 250,000
years. But the Lucifer rebellion is not the last word. It is the first
word, in a sense. But the last word is the life and teaching of our
Creator Son. Always His words were an invitation to associate. Always His
good news, His gospel, was an announcement about a relationship of Father
to son, Father to daughter, brother to sister. Always did He combat and
refute the original liar, the one who said that freedom was obtained by
self assertion, that liar being none other than Lucifer and his associates.
It is not good that man be alone, or woman for that matter, for it is
contrary to the structure of the universe. You were not created Solitary
Messengers, but brothers and sisters in one family of God. Michael does
not want to see His sheep stray from the flock. In fact, He will leave the
99 to go in search of the one who is lost, and when He brings him over His
shoulder He rejoices exceedingly. When Jesus told the story, everybody
understood it intuitively. They knew that He was talking about their
relationship with their Great Shepherd, their Creator God. Instead of
searching for a God who hides himself in wrathful disapproval from the
humble sinner, Jesus was telling us the truth, that God is always the one
taking the initiative to seek out the isolated one, to bring them back into
contact, with not only Himself but with the other members of the flock.
Yes, of course that's why we're here, to bring you all back into the great
flock of the universe family. And now having shared our Creator
Sovereign's mission, we ask you to bring in the isolate, the lonely, the
ones who regards themselves as worthless. I am not saying you should be
responsible for another's decisions, of course not. But, share the vision,
the imperative, the energy of the Great Shepherd who goes in search of His
lost sheep. When there is mention in the words of Jesus about the joy in
heaven the angels share over one who is lost and then found, these words
are not poetry! They are literally true. For yes, your guardians
literally live for the purpose of guiding you mortals towards your true
home where the Father dwells.
And so it with the deepest joy that I Daniel, your elder brother, your
teacher, your guide, am also your companion. Yes! It is with the deepest
joy that I am with you and bringing you with me another step on this
radiant pathway to Paradise. Know how much I truly love you; and I feel
your love in return. Now if you wish, let us converse. I am finished.
Do you have questions or comments?
LaReen: Just to thank you, Daniel, for being here with us and for your
faith in us, and your love.
Daniel: You are most welcome, LaReen. And you do perceive correctly, for I
do have faith in you all, as well as love. You all do very well. (Long
Sometimes when there is true intimacy there is no need for words. People
can sit in the presence of others and be at peace. I sense something of
that feeling tonight with you all.
Virginia: Daniel, it was interesting for me to hear you say that people
who choose isolation do so out of fear and lack of nourishing from
childhood, lack of support. And certainly as I look see that reality.
But I can also see the opposite, in that many times people who fear to be
alone and who have lacked nourishment, lacked being nourished in their
childhood, emotionally or spiritually, do just the opposite in that they
have to go to crowds, because they don't want to be alone. And so I can
see both of those as reality in our lives and in our opportunity as we meet
our brothers and sisters.
Daniel: Yes, some people go to crowds, but they are not intimate (Virginia:
You're right). They are isolate in the midst of others.
Virginia: Very good point; thank you Daniel. You can be isolated even in a
crowd. And frankly I feel sometimes loneliest in a crowd, whereas I much
prefer a small, small group.
Daniel: I should say some more about the other impulse, the more natural
one actually, which is alive on your planet but not in the measure of that
it is on normal planets. And that is the natural impulse to associate, to
be with other people. Because your social structures are so diverse on
this planet there is the possibility of true intimacy and normal family
relationships which occur many times more frequently in other cultures than
this decentralized-individualized culture of the United States of America.
Therefor what I have said about the isolation is only part of the picture.
There is at the same time significant amounts of togetherness in solid
families, especially in cultures who have less material distractions and
who are therefor are not dissuaded from the more profound satisfaction of
intimacy as experienced in families.
At the risk of sounding like a broken record I must say that materialism
has fractured the family to a large measure. People are seeking for the
satisfaction of the emptiness within by the accumulation of things instead
of the intimacy of true loving relationships. Once again, as we have said
before, we think that this materialism will self destruct. It will prove
so barren and so unsatisfying that when moments of true intimacy occur,
such as resulted from the tragedy of 9/11, once again people will reassess
there values. We see this happening to some extent.
It is a difficult world you live on. We shake our heads at the
contradictions! You war on each other in order to assert your point of
view. You assault your divine natures by your animal propensities. You
disregard the sacredness of other people when they are labeled "enemies".
You do not respect the right of free will in others. When I say "you", I
am not speaking to you as a group here this evening I am saying the
forces that move your culture are indeed in contradiction. Affirming love
and the value of humanity on the one hand, at the same time you worship the
right to force your decisions on other people through the use of violence.
I must remind you that Jesus allowed for the use of force by the state to
enforce its good rules. But wise is the culture that does not aggress
against others and only uses force to defend itself. In your personal
relationships the Master is the model. When He was aggressed against, when
He was threatened, He did not return the threatening behavior. When He was
criticized, He did not criticize in return, with the exception of His
final speech to the Pharisees and Scribes. But that was for a different
reason, to make His case clear at the end of His life.
Oh yes! Be wise as serpents and harmless as doves. How difficult that is
on this planet!
Virginia: Daniel, thank you. I thought that by the time we die we might
be as wise as serpents; and then we can't hurt anybody cause our bodies are
so limited that we might be as harmless as doves. (laughter) Excuse my
Daniel: Your wisdom is better than that, my dear. (laughter) You are
learning the ways of peace which begin with your relationship with
yourself, then extend to the most intimate members of your family, meaning
those people that you regard as your family.
Virginia: You know, Daniel, I had another thought that's a little more
sensible and that is that you teachers are wonderful models of peace. When
I start attacking myself Klarixiska can always find a reason why what I
have said is not true. And it isn't just an excuse, but it's an opening up
of a bigger picture of my circumstances rather than just agreeing that I'm
a useless, what ever (laughter).
Daniel: Realize that we have a few thousand years on you, plus most of us
did not come from planets as socially retarded as this one. We learned a
lot more during our mortal careers (chuckling and Daniel chuckles) than you
have been able to learn. However, we are doing our best to upgrade your
education. Would you not agree? (Much agreement, definitely)
If Bob S. were here I would reply to him directly, but in his absence I
will reply to his mood, in the meeting of last week, where he said that our
teachings are not accepted. My reply is, we know that! But that will not
stop us from continuing to share them! For, if we to give up and say this
planet is hopeless, and your Thought Adjusters were to do like wise, and
your guardian angles were to resign, then indeed there would be cause for
alarm!! What we want you to do, as we said last week, is to become our
flesh and blood, to become our hands; and indeed you are doing this. So
rather than bemoan how difficult it is to sow the seeds and how much of the
soil is stony, full of weeds, etc., continue to be faithful sowers knowing
that it is not your responsibility to bring the rain or the sun. That will
be done by those who's job it is.
Virginia: You mean we're not off the hook!
Daniel: Yes, you are not off the hook. You are leaven in the bread. You
are the salt of the earth. You are the light of the world. These are
words of truth!
Well my friends its been a wonderful visit with you today. I am always
pleased when we can be in intimate formation as we are tonight. Let's hold
our hands and conclude.
Please repeat after me: I am a Son of God (group: I am a Son of God). I
have within me a piece of the very Source of all things (I have within me a
piece of the very Source of all things). I am of all men and women most
fortunate (I am of all men and women most fortunate) because I know this
(because I know this). I promise (I promise) to the best of my ability (to
the best of my ability) to let this truth be known (to let this truth be
known) to all who will hear it (to all who will hear it) and to share love
from God ( and to share love from God) to all my brothers and sisters (to
all my brothers and sisters). In the name of Christ Michael I intend these
thoughts (in the name of Chris Michael I intend these thoughts) and prayers
(and prayers). Amen (Amen)
