* Elyon (Jonathan TR): Greetings, this is Elyon, happy to be
amongst you again.
It is always good to be in your company. I reflect upon our
years of association and view much that can be labeled progress
on your part, for you have done well in absorbing and applying
what has been expressed to you through our weekly engagements.
This attention you give that we receive encourages us as your
teachers to continue, and demands of us our own degree of
diligence in searching for and discovering those elements of
your spiritual makeup that would benefit from guidance. As you
receive such communication, had you not applied them, we would
have a disappointing but easy task in repeating ourselves until
you absorbed the full meaning and impact of our statements. But
as you continue to develop you create challenges for us to dig
deeper, all the while remaining approachable and applicable to
numerous souls who receive these communications.
The deeper we address your spiritual needs, the more varied
those needs are among the many who listen to us, for, while you
were all at one time less spiritually mature, our lessons
applied more evenly across the board. As you each refine your
state of God consciousness, varied lacks appear among the many
of you. We then are challenged to attempt to minister to these
multiple needs and do so in this short time as succinctly as we
A teacher in truth has less difficulty over students who are
not growing, for the lessons simply repeat themselves.
Difficult students are, in reality, those who are growing and
changing, for they cause the instructor to further develop and
refine the teachings to meet the higher demand for understanding
and for guidance. So, while you struggle to apply our lessons
and discover it easier to do as the months and years roll by,
you are also causing myself and my associates to grow as well.
You are challenging us to expand our message and to refine our
message to meet your new needs.
At one time in the field of your scientific understanding of
the motion of planets you had created a model wherein the earth
was stationary, and the sun and the moon revolved around your
world. This met with all your perception, for as you even today
with greater understanding still see sunrise and sunset and the
appearance of the moon crossing your sky. As you progressed in
your research, developed greater tools and technology, you began
to discern discrepancies in this observation and made
adjustments in your understanding to conform to evidence and
fact as they have become known to you. Soon you refined your
model such that now your model revolves around the sun, and you
developed an understanding in your minds of the real
relationships of these spheres that did not fit your everyday
visual appearance of rising and setting suns. Yet you knew with
the greater understanding that this appearance was but a small
observation of a greater complexity of motions. This
astronomical perspective applies to your spiritual inner world
As you began life on earth as a self-conscious being you
perceived yourself as at one time on your planet you perceived
the earth to be: the center of all things. Now, while youre
unfolding your soul, comprehending your spiritual nature, you
know that, while it is easy for you to run your life with the
appearance of the sun rising and setting around you, that in
reality the sun, the Divine Fragment that indwells you, is your
center; and that you rotate about this divine spirit.
So, you are functioning with a greater comprehension of the
interrelationship of the Divine Presence and human selfhood; in
human mind you are still, as it were, on earth, but in spirit
consciousness you are anchored and centered as if on the sun.
Now those who are curious among you may ask how this
comparison of planets to your spiritual makeup would apply the
presence of the moon. I will perhaps ease that curiosity by
addressing it this way: You now recognize that your sun itself
travels in the universe, and you have a hazy idea astronomically
that it too rotates around the center, the geographical point,
that you are beginning to attempt to determine scientifically.
This point in our comparison is the Paradise Father at the
center of all things. Your Divine Fragment of God is in
relation to this Absolute Source. So, you do rotate about the
Father of all things, but you rotate more often about the Divine
Fragment that indwells you. And the moon is much like the
presence of your guardian angels whose assignment is to keep an
eye ever upon you.
Their assignments revolve around you as a human self. They
need not address the Divine Fragment, for it is self-contained
and wholly capable. Therefore do these angels hover about you,
the human self, the earthly sphere. They know full well that
the true light, the warmth and energy that you require as a
human being, comes from the Divine Presence. These guardians
provide reflection, provide illumination, when you are not
viewing the divine within you directly. This is one manner in
which they guard your soul, for as you have noted in the evening
sky the presence of the moon allows you to see your way even
while the sun is out of sight. These guardian angels reflect
the divine presence in you such that you may be illuminated in
your darker times.
I have stressed the importance of stillness. In this lesson
stillness is simply the shifting of your paradigm from an earth
anchor to a sun anchor. You can do this even while busy, for it
is as simple as catching yourself saying, What a beautiful
sunrise! knowing full well that it is the motion of the earth,
not the sun, that you perceive. The expansion of consciousness
functions even while you are wholly occupied with earthly
matters. Yes, you could be far more accurate and say, What a
beautiful earth spin! as the sun appears to set in your sky,
but that is unnecessary. You may continue to live your earthly
human existence meeting the demands and challenges and
appearances that the human life requires. But it is the
expansion of your soul, the enlargement of your comprehension,
that adjusts to the true reality, the grand picture, even while
you do live your human existence.
I will draw this lesson to a close adding one more image to
factor into this teaching. As you may desire to receive your
guardian angel, such a vision will or may come your way not
caused by yourself but done so based on the factors at work in
this complex motion of your being. To attempt to force such a
vision may be likened to the earth between the sun and the moon
creating an eclipse. It is better that you focus your attention
upon the sun, in this case the Divine Presence bestowed upon
you, and then your guardian will come into better view, for it
is this same light that makes your angels visible.
I desire your comments or questions.
Kirk: When you were talking about my angel I was kind of
looking to worship my angel, to depend more on, and try to
contact my angel. You straightened it out with just looking to
make contact with my Adjuster and the other will happen. Thats
nice how you finished that lesson. Thank you.
* Elyon: You are welcome, and I will address another eclipse
that you perceive in your skies, the solar eclipse. I will
change the moon to be us, your teachers. It is valuable that
you not place us between you and the Divine Spirit, for you will
then be eclipsing your perspective of Gods presence. We are
best your servants and we stand -- or should I say orbit? -- to
the side of your direct view of the Fathers presence. All
celestial ministers no matter who we serve adjust ourselves to
be in motion and synchrony with any Fragment of God anywhere in
the universe. This is our relationship priority. With that
relationship established we are better able to turn our
attention upon you and assist you in deepening your relationship
Kirk: Thats why stillness is so important, its that
relationship with God?
* Elyon: Indeed.
Kirk: Through that we consequently get communication with
* Elyon: Yes.
Tom: Our function is to stand aside also and reflect rather
than to get in the way and eclipse?
* Elyon: I am glad you asked that question, for as you look
into your nights sky you see the various other planets about
you each reflecting the sun. We may liken them to your brothers
and sisters. Each of you reflecting Divine Presence causes
another to see the divine light, albeit indirectly, but
indicating its reality, its factuality, its actuality.
Thank you all for reflecting upon this lesson. I thank you
for creating the focus, the opportunity, the location and time
for us to meet together. Once again I applaud your work in
these gatherings of expressing your previous weeks experiences
with each of you. Sharing is like a nutrient that increases
your spiritual health, for the feedback is encouraging as well
as it can be correcting. By undertaking this agenda each week
you spend as much time being a teacher for one another as you do
being a student in relationship to ones like myself.
I will leave now and wish you a good continued days
