Arcadia Teaching Mission Group
Monday, June 16, 8:00 P.M.
Larry: Father, thank you for our meeting here tonight. We welcome Lucille
back from her vacation. It is good to have everyone here. We appreciate
the fellowship which we have between us and the love bond. We are so
grateful for your love Father. We are so grateful for the life that your
son Jesus lived on this planet. We pray for world peace. We pray for
Light and Life. We pray that we can be the light to bring this
about. Open our eyes, ears, minds and hearts to the truth the teachers
have to say to us. We look forward to serving you Father. We look forward
to serving you Michael. Thank you Nebadonia for your angels that you have
sent to protect us and assist us, we love you so very much. Thank you for
our teachers in association with the Correcting Time. In Christ Michael's
JarEl: TR, George. Good evening, it is I, your teacher, JarEl. It is
good to be back among this group again. I too welcome Lucille back.
Lucille: Thank you, I missed you a lot, JarEl.
JarEl: TR, George. I too, missed you Lucille. Tonight I will discuss
with you the meaning of service to others. At times it may seem
insignificant the small acts of kindness to your fellow human beings, it
may seem your little acts goes unnoticed. That is not so, every single act
of kindness that you demonstrate towards your fellow man or woman is
recorded down in your Book of Life for later evaluation by you and
others. The importance of serving others is far greater than just being
recorded in your book. It is a form and method of learning and growing
spiritually. It is a form of knowing God; becoming lesser so that you may
become greater. When you serve another human being you demonstrate an act
of kindness towards that person. Even though you may not know or feel it,
the person receiving your act of kindness may feel extreme gratitude for
such action. Service to others is not common for everyone. Many are
accustomed to receiving payment for these services. That is not the
service of which I speak. The service that I speak of is given to you
freely and unconditionally. It is given when it is not asked for and when
it is asked for. It is given without question.
Service on Urantia is just the beginning. It is the training ground for
later service that awaits you in your Morontia career and into your
Spiritual career. To be of service here only gives you greater
responsibility when it comes time for you to be of service on the Morontia
Worlds. The more practice you get here, the greater the responsibility
will be given you when you arrive on the next world. There are many who
have been of extreme service to this world who will serve as dignitaries
and representatives in the Morontia Realm. Some are given high honors and
high positions in the Morontia Government. It is only fitting such
serviceable people receive such honor, for their whole lives they have
dedicated themselves to the service of others. Being of service is
something that you should be getting accustomed to. If you are not doing
it now, you should consider being of service.
In the Morontia Realms you are asked to look after those below you. You
are asked to go back and teach those below you. Most do it with great joy
and pleasure, for it is an honor to go back and serve others. It is an
honor for me to come and serve you, to come and educate you. It is not a
burden but my pleasure to be here. I look forward each time we meet. It
gives pleasure to feel your presence and the energy you bring to this
room. It also gladdens me when I see the majority of you growing, becoming
more spiritual each day. That is what service is really all about. It is
so you can bring something into a person's life which they may not have
received otherwise. You have that gift, you have that possibility of
giving this service to another. The service that you give may be what is
needed to help them to become a better person. By planting a seed into a
person's mind, by your act, by your service or by your example, fruit shall
come forth in their life. From your service they may become an example to
others. Service is about changing people's lives and in the process you
change your own life for the better. In the process you grow, you listen
and you learn. This growth is not just physical growth, it is
spiritual. It is all inspiring and it helps to transcend your soul to
eternity. That is what service is about. It takes you into this long
process of growing and evolving. It is not always easy, there are many
challenges and obstacles. It is how you deal with these challenges and
obstacles that bring forth true wisdom. Is wisdom something that is
desired? Service is a tool for that wisdom. Service is the instrument by
which you will shape your soul into a wise and spiritually enlightened being.
You may view service as something that tires you out at times and you may
not have any time for service. Stop and think of how many people have
served you during your life time? How many people have given up their time
to help you out? I know there have been many people who have been of great
service in your lives. Just imagine how your being of service adds to the
brotherhood of man. Imagine the people who are affected by your wonderful
service to them. In their minds they view you as a wonderful person who
took your time to help them. If service is a tool to shape yourself, then
God is the fire by which your soul is softened in order to be shaped.
When you are thrown into the fire, when your life is in chaos and there are
challenges left and right, this is a great test that you must pass. This
is a great challenge you must bend your will towards. At times like this
it is foolish to think selfishly, it is foolish to lament over one's own
misery, for it brings you nowhere. In those times, if nothing else, be of
service to others. In your service you may find the answers you are
looking for. It is more common this happens. Are there any questions tonight?
Jim: What you say JarEl I believe. I have understood every word that you
said. I concur and I do see myself in my thinking heading for God. My
biggest concern in bringing God more into my service is choosing the right
God. I don't want to be misunderstood, I know there are many Gods out
there, is that so?
JarEl: TR, George. There is only one God! There are billions of
interpretations of Him. Every single person sees God in a different
way. It is when you try to impose your idea of what God is to you on
others that leads to misinterpretations. It is better to speak from your
heart and from your soul. It is better to speak from love and kindness and
Jim: It makes a lot of sense JarEl, my heart is full of love.
JarEl: TR, George. Then take this message and give this love to
others. Give the love to those who need it. Regardless of what perception
of God a person may have, they are still deserving of love and
kindness. We are all God's children. We are all connected to
God. Everyone has feelings and emotions. Everyone can hurt and be in
pain. The truest way to show God to someone is to show them love and
kindness. Are there other questions?
Lucille: This is not a question but more of telling a story. I want to
thank the Father for the beautiful time I had with my family and friends
the last three weeks. It was beautiful to go back East and see all the
dogwood in bloom and the rhododendrons. It is a beautiful country on the
East coast with all the forests that we drove through. It makes me realize
that we are in a desert out here. I thank you Father for the
experience. I did miss you JarEl and these meetings. It is good to be
back, but it was a wonderful experience to be on vacation.
JarEl: TR, George. Thank you Lucille for your observations and yes, we
missed you too. We are glad that you are back here among us.
Jim: JarEl, I have a question that I would like to ask you. I was
thinking about this for a long time: what types of institutions are formed
on other planets to meet the challenges of life?
JarEl: TR, George. There is much trial and error, just as there is on
your world. The peoples on other worlds in their lifetime go through
various forms of government, up to the point they reach the Age of Light
and Life, when they are able to govern themselves without the aid of
government. What is good for another world is not necessarily good for
yours. Your world must go through many transitional phases. Your world
must adjust and re-adjust. Your government must transform itself in order
to represent its people and the citizens of the world. It would be futile
for me to explain to you the exact workings of other governments. For it
is not always appropriate to compare.
Jim: Thank you JarEl. I believe that you cannot have enjoyment without
appreciation, would you comment on this JarEl?
JarEl: TR, George. That sounds reasonable. If you appreciate something
you enjoy it as well. There are many that do not appreciate and therefore
there is not enjoyment in what ever they do or receive. That is a very
In keeping with my lesson tonight I would like to report on a friend of
ours who has been of great service to all who arrive in the Morontia
Realm. Since his arrival he was given great responsibility for he showed
great potential. Since that time he has advanced in status and has been
given great responsibilities, for he has shown himself to be a man of
integrity and honor. I speak of Hal. He has impressed many and he
continues to work hard to uplift his fellow Morontians. He constantly
thinks of all of you, especially you Lucille. Although he cannot be here
at this moment, he sends his fondest wishes to you of love and happiness.
Lucille: I look forward to seeing him. I hope it can be soon.
JarEl: TR, George. And so does he look forward to seeing you
Lucille. Hal has been a great example for all of us. He has truly taken
the meaning of service to heart. He has learned to grow and to adjust with
the growth. He is no longer handicapped by the pressure of physical life
here on Urantia. His service has excelled tremendously.
Lucille: What does he do in the way of service?
JarEl: TR, George. He helps those who are just below him or who have just
arrived. It is very difficult to transition when your thought processes or
your belief system is not correct. In Hal's case he understands many who
arrive on the Morontia Realm and with this great understanding he helps
them to transition to what is now real for them. Many have graduated from
his classes and are grateful for his guidance and his patience in these
hard times of their lives. For many it is not easy dying and it is not
easy finding that you are still alive. As you can imagine it is confusing
for many. This is where Hal helps to take away the confusion. He helps
them to transition to this new reality. He is very good at his job.
Lucille: He was a wonderful teacher down here too.
Donna: That is true.
Lucille: When we transfer to the next life is it entirely different then
what we experience here?
JarEl: TR, George. Not entirely. There are somethings that are like this
world, but there are many things that have improved and are
noticeable. After this life, many will be in shock and many confused. It
takes serious men and women like Hal to help many to transition into the
Morontia Realm. Hal is very good at his job and finds much pleasure in
what he is doing. He loves to serve and he loves to give. This is a
quality which is required in all such positions on the Morontia Worlds and
beyond. With that I shall leave you until next time, good night.
All: Good night JarEl.
