* Olfana (Ginny TR): Good morning, this is Olfana.
As you gather during these times of spiritual searching
desiring improvement and growth, it is good to see you reaching
for the sky, so to speak, but, as you realize, you are bounded
in physical reality. It would behoove you to apply these
physical manifestations to your spiritual realm. They are all
around you, especially as the seasons change: The blue skies,
the clouds, the wind, the harvest, the green and the brown, the
cleanup of things that are finished, putting them aside not
because they are no longer useful but because they have another
cycle, the cycle of becoming something else. Relish the colors,
the smells, the movement, the changing of the light; all these
things can be applied very easily to your spiritual natures.
All of you have your hands in the dirt now and then, so you
know whereof I speak. These material manifestations are gifts
to you if you contemplate them as you work with them. As you
realize by the cycle of the seasons, all things change, all
things grow. All things have their season from the first poke
of the crocus under the snow to the harvesting of the last
zucchini, or squash, or potato only to begin again the following
spring, to repeat the cycle.
Your times of light are wonderful indeed and are to be
enjoyed. Your times of inspiration, your times of spiritual joy
are certainly easy and delightful times to be in, but not to
lose heart when times are rather dark, confused, and you feel
like you may not be accomplishing much. Those are all human
thoughts and human emotions which are valuable because they lead
you to a time when things again will be clear, will be
enjoyable, will be delightfully uplifting. Your spiritual
nature, your spiritual standing never goes backward if you keep
your eye on the prize, when you understand that these passing
moments of confusion and doubt will turn soon into flowering
growth and improvement.
As you progress along this path and as you become more and
more familiar and as you live more and more in the light of your
divine inheritance, you will more easily be able to weather the
storms of insecurity and doubt. You will more and more realize
that these things are but passing shadows and that they will
lead you to stay firm and to stay focused on your eternal
Indeed a great day is coming when you will all be bathed in
the light. There will be less fear, less hatred, less
animosity, and more joy and trust and love. It is inevitable;
it is far superior to the trials and setbacks of your human
nature. Be kind. Be tolerant and be loving. Use all the
colors of your spiritual accumulation just as it takes all
colors to make your flowers beautiful.
I too rejoice at your progress and am delighted to partake
of witnessing this fantastic event that is occurring on your
planet. I wish you all steadfastness in your pursuits, joy on
your countenances, and cheerfulness in your words. I leave you
with great hope for the future and a great certainty for the
light. Good day.
* Evanson (Jonathan): I too greet you. This is Evanson. I
take delight in visiting, undertaking this format of contact and
share with you reflections upon a teaching brought by another
teacher in this mission.
It has been said that the opposite of love is not hatred but
rather fear. Love may be called an aggressive act, though I
qualify it to be a kind, soft, act of aggression, perhaps more
appropriately called assertion; and fear is a recoil, a
retraction. It is one that avoids risk; love is willing to
risk. Hatred, on the other hand, is aggressive; it is willing
to risk. These two qualities alone disqualify it as an opposite
to love. It is rather a distorted application of love in all
its reverses but is not its opposite.
If fear is the opposite of love and not hatred, then what is
the opposite of hatred? It is courage. You might think of
courage as the opposite of fear. Let us look at courage and
Hatred is projected toward another person or thing, an
external situation that is disliked. Courage, on the other
hand, is an acceptance of your own values, your own worth, a
trust in your own wisdom. It is like love in that both love and
courage assert your value and the value of what you believe in,
where fear and hatred are a recognition of a power outside
oneself and an unwillingness to accommodate or reckon with it.
Jesus taught that it is better to amplify the light rather
than to advertise negativity; to search out, to comprehend, and
to be transformed into goodness rather than discover,
categorize, and condemn all evil, for in the end what is it that
you wish to possess but truth and goodness? And what is it that
you leave behind but error and evil? Therefore it is beneficial
to the growth of the soul to put away fear, to abandon hatred,
to develop courage, and to augment love, for these two are an
investment in your own personal wealth. It is an acknowledgment
of your own abilities, your own powers. It also allows you
freedom, for both fear and hatred imprison you to either the
values or the powers of someone other than yourself, and
conditions your actions and limits your freedom.
Courage may and often is seen as an aggression, and it has
been used wrongly in the forcing of beliefs upon others. But it
is really passive, for it is willing to disregard the influence
of others and to merely reside within the values held dear.
Courage need not act, for many a courageous soul has gone to
death simply standing for ones belief. Hatred, on the other
hand, is the aggressive force which seeks to suppress the
orientation of another.
When faced with feelings of hatred, or any other synonym
that you may choose to describe that feeling -- more correctly,
a temporary orientation -- do not be concerned with replacing it
with love but rather adopt courage, return to your home values,
your personal beliefs, and stand by your orientation. Trust in
the wisdom bestowed upon you through experience and the guidance
of God that your position and your orientation are valuable.
Leave the condemnation of another to the trials of time and the
guidance of God that they may gain in wisdom and change their
ways. Be courageous.
When faced with fear, it is not a time to muster courage; it
is a time to amplify love. Fear is a distrust in your own
ability to stand for who you are, whether it is in physical
strength or in your personal beliefs or in your eternal welfare.
Love, on the other hand, values your abilities, values your
standing, and values all others likewise, and is willing not
only to die for friends but to die for enemies. That love takes
All we teachers enjoy canvassing the many lessons presented
to you by our fellows. We reflect upon the insights of each
within our teaching corps. We each develop our own perspectives
and wish to share those with you, and so I do today give you my
perspective on what is the opposite of love. If it is not what
it was thought to have been, and what are the opposites for
those. Thank you.
Ginny: When there are changes in our spiritual growth on
this, or any, planet will there be a change in teachers, like a
changing of the guard?
* Evanson: There is a turnover of instructors that does
depend upon the progress of the human beings who are involved in
the teaching outreach. This is not however a complete turnover
of all involved. It is a reassigning of those who have
volunteered to undertake certain aspects of the teaching program
that they are best equipped to lend their services to, while
others are retained as their roles are more comprehensive, more
administrative, involved in oversight. This is also true of
personal teacher assignments as it is with the progress of a
It may be likened to your grade school instructors and then
your higher educational instructors, for in your early years you
have a single instructor and numerous topics. You do receive a
change of instructor in a period of time, a school year, but as
you advance and the specifics of your knowledge increase and the
breadth of your knowledge expands, there come into your life
many teachers given to one subject more specific and expert in
that field, and you change your classroom hourly. This is the
same pattern for your spiritual growth and for the growth of the
planet, for as human civilization grows more interconnected,
more globally expanded and complex in cultural interweaving, far
more specifically trained instructors are required, and they
will shift to the hot spots, those areas in need of that
revelational touch, that input of celestial perspective.
When a milestone in planetary advancement is attained, when
goals are reached that are held by many volunteers such as those
in this Teaching Mission/Correcting Time, an announcement is put
forth by the melchizedeks that any volunteer who has reached a
point of fulfillment may retire from the program and do so with
honor, with having succeeded in fulfilling that personal mission
to which they volunteered, for at these crossroads it is
recognized that human civilization has entered into -- if I may
use my school analogy -- a new academic program. The grade
school instructors are praised for their efforts, and the higher
educational professors are installed to continue. This reflects
not upon their worth but acknowledges the value of every
celestial minister at every step in the planets progress.
Therefore you will see a change as the need arises, but it will
not be a complete clearing of the staff and the installation of
an entirely new set of beings.
I hope this has helped.
Ginny: Yes, thank you.
This is not a totally spiritual question so maybe I
shouldnt ask, but I have been reading about the bilderbergers
in our government. Is that anything that is going to effect our
world either governmentally or spiritually?
* Evanson: I am not aware of this terminology you speak of.
Bilderbergers? I assume it has nothing to do with high protein
* Evanson: The midwayers hinted that there is a great
ideological struggle on this world, and that struggle is not
with one governmental power and another as was witnessed so
strongly in your era titled The Cold War. It is rather with
selfishness with superiority sensibility coupled with the wrong
intention to implant ones values aggressively into another
culture. That applies to opposite parties, polar governmental
configurations, and trickles down to individual and personal
There are bodies of beings on this world, human beings, who
assert that they have the right perspective on how the world
ought to be run. It is driven most often from a narrow
viewpoint, one of personal or small group interest and not
taking into account the benefit of the largest, greatest amount
of people. These pockets, these power bases, do not know when
to relinquish their control, to turn over to more qualified
leaders, as the celestial ministers know to do when their time
has run its course. It may have been important at one time to
stand for some values, to fight against oppression, but that
very stance becomes oppressive itself when one fails to see that
the time has arrived for a shift into a new paradigm to install
matters of functioning that will promote higher values without
oppression, without eliminating all from belonging rightfully to
those higher standards of life.
Much tolerance and allowance and resolve are given over to
governmental bodies for correcting the wrongs of societies, for
upholding values of society. These institutions are not the
leaders in world advancement. They are an inevitable outworking
of the effort of a world to advance. Those who bring change
within humanity are those who work within the many ranks of
human society. These are the ones who apply themselves in a
township, who apply themselves in a rural area, and some have
the calling to a larger body. Some are within areas of human
accomplishment such as literature, art, and science. These are
the people who create the destiny of the world, and the many
follow willingly because of its attractiveness. No military, no
dictator, can hold the masses when these individuals are
planting the seeds of light and of truth.
Does this address your question?
Ginny: Yes, thank you.
Evelyn: We trust our teachers, the melchizedeks, and the
various program overseers that whoever they assign to us is who
we need. If others move on that we have come to know and love,
well, our friendship lives on, and we will have opportunities to
get reacquainted at another time.
Ginny: Its one of the things Im looking forward to when I
get on the other side, seeing and re-meeting all the teachers we
have become acquainted with here.
* Evanson: Such reunions take place, and you will be involved
in a gathering of that sort. You will do so many times
throughout your ascent, for while this world may have billions
of people upon it, imagine the system, the local universe, and
the worlds in spheres beyond. You will meet many of the
brothers and sisters who inhabit these worlds. You will cherish
those relationships forever, even while you may be light years
distant from one another. But you are coming to know of forms
of communication as your technology advances on this world which
will give you a hint of your ability to stay in touch heart to
heart with one another even across the galaxies.
I will release Jonathan. I give you my love. All the
teachers care deeply for every one of you, even if their
assignments are in other areas and on other tasks. So long.
