Arcadia Teaching Mission Group

Monday, November 17, 2003, 8:00 pm
Arcadia, California

Prayers: Donna: Dear Heavenly Father thank you for our gathering here
tonight. We love our spiritual brothers and sisters and we love you. We
love this opportunity to listen to the teachers and to hear what they have
to tell us and what they have to teach us. Please open our hearts and
minds to receive that which you would have us receive, in Michael’s name we
pray, amen.

JarEl: TR, Henry Z. Greetings to you my friends, it is I, your teacher,
JarEl. It is good to be here this evening, to come to you through a
familiar voice. Tonight let us give thanks. There is much to be thankful
for. Tonight I am not interested in the listing of thanks as I am in the
human heart aspects of thanks as a way of worship and ministry. The whole
world would open on a note of thanks. Hearts would mend all over the world
with a word of thanks.

It is important in a spiritual context to recognize all the small crumbs of
real effort everyone puts out in their daily lives just to complete their
daily human tasks; their inter-association with their families, their loved
ones, their work, their business; thanks that everyone takes for
granted. Something many forget to acknowledge in search for more dramatic
praise and dramatic raise (?) and all the while the daily rudimental
mechanism of life gets trudged on and worn down to peat gravel, sand-sized
particles of spiritual reality. It is easy in the human arena to criticize
behavior and to judge a person unworthy by their behavior, but in the
spiritual arena it is much more important to recognize, not so much the
blundering errors of behavior, as it is the small manipulative steps of
behavior, the daily unnoticed things that people do; unspoken; unheeded.

Let us give thanks for our humanness. Let us give thanks for that
omnipotence of God who qualified himself and created this stage of reality
for the express purpose of indwelling us lowly creatures of time; that God
could actually experience human conflict, human confusion, human doubt and
frustration and fear; and slowly guide an amorist consciousness into some
vestige of form; some spiritual attainment through the simple aggregate of
daily toil. Much like an oyster takes a piece of sand and through constant
gestation, grows this piece of sand into a valuable thing of blustering
beauty of translucence and transcendence. It is not necessarily the great
concepts that move man is what I am saying, thankful for those also. It is
the unseen and unspoken things that most human beings take responsibility
for, that is what I’m talking about. A lot of this is taken for granted
and not acknowledged. In your world, your world view, it is good to pay
tribute to this.

There is more of God’s work in those small moments in the martyr of human
daily activities which martyrs those more profound human granite blocks of
achievement; social achievement, generational achievement, occupational
achievement. These things cannot stand alone. It would fall and crumble
if it were not for the daily effort and toil and care which goes into
maintaining who we are as a human species; our bodies, our genetics, our
families and all of the municipal utilities that go to maintain a civilized
way of life in your country and in this world. People are nation builders
and this is a good thing. This reflexes organization. Nation building
will lead to one great nation in time. So thanks is an attitude of
acceptance; acceptance of the generosity opportunity that constantly is
bearing forth fruit in the daily lives of such a world on which we live.

The Father’s acceptance of thanks is his capacity to hold in love, in the
trust of love, qualities of grace, mercy, compassion, forgiveness, empathy,
longsuffering and graciousness. Love is a matrix of positive form. It is
the matrix to which everything aligns itself and the Father accepts such a
new forming and incomplete substance such as we find on this planet. God
is thankful of the tremendous opportunity he finds in such a vital and
vibrant confused, confounded and otherwise beautiful cumulates.

It goes without saying, you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s
gone. How many people, who have traversed and cursed this world, would not
in a moment’s notice accept passage to come back here? Knowing what they
know now, the opportunity that exists, that is closed to them forever. I
am speaking to the choir here, but to the peripheral audience, the people
who may read this transcript, even years from now, I speak to them.

The great and solemn magnificence in Paradise dwells within each and every
one of you. To glimpse, to taste, to access, to be conscious of and to
hold forth in presence is such a task a human mind is called to witness
this spiritual heritage. (I have to apologize it makes me to feel good to
be in this mind again.) As you begin to hold forth in the presence of
God, hold forth in an attitude of acceptance.

Thankfulness is really the ultimate in worship. The acknowledging of this
great mystery in which we are all a part, the magnificent glory of some
future time whose scent can be picked up even here and now, in this time,
in this life, in this planet, on this world. This is what I’m talking
about. It is so easy to lose sight, to disconnect, to forget who you are,
to forget where you come from and where you are going.

There are so many unconscious souls around you who are waiting to be
touched, just quite simply touched; acknowledged “How are you doing today
- God truly does love you, no matter what you have done or will continue
to do. Yes, he will help you if you are only willing to show the least
amount of effort yourself and he has already forgiven you. When are you
going to forgive yourself?” There are many, many sleeping survivors
of them were still young. The ground on Urantia is some of the most
fertile ground in the Universe of Nebadon. Go out and plant some seeds and
give thanks to God. God is good, God is great and God is
everywhere. Thank you for allowing me to present these thoughts to you
tonight. Are there any questions?

Stella: I wonder what God will do with all of the trillions of experiences?

JarEl: TR, Henry Z. So do I? He may have something up his sleeve. No
one in Paradise had any idea of what the Super-universes would bring, no
one. Even today they are still not prepared for the Finaliters.

Lucille: Did you say that people would want to come back here? Is that
what I understood you to say?

JarEl: TR, Henry Z. You heard me correctly Lucille. Many people suffer
the pains of missed opportunity
.. if they could do it all over again

see these are the first lessons in the Mansion Worlds, i.e. to completely
analyze what you did and did not accomplish when you had the opportunities
presented to you.

Lucille: Don’t we get the same experiences or opportunities later too? I
thought we had to

JarEl: TR, Henry Z. You get them on the Mansion Worlds, that is correct,
you don’t get them back on Urantia, no. There are opportunities that you
can only get on Urantia. Especially in Agondonter status, these are
opportunities that are quite valuable, because you cannot achieve
Agondonter status on the Mansion Worlds, it is too late. You can only
achieve it here. Agondonter status does not mean that you came from a
planet such as this. Agondonter status means that you achieve that status
on a planet such as this. There is a difference, many have come from this
world but they have not achieved Agondonter status. Do you understand what
I’m saying?

Donna: The status is for those who have believed without seeing, if I
remember correctly?

JarEl: TR, Henry Z. There you go. Perfect.

Donna: Thank you.

Stella: What happens to those who do not believe?

JarEl: TR, Henry Z. They go forth. Sometimes people choose not to
believe and eventually choose not to believe and eventually choose not to be.

Stella: So they won’t be Agondonters?

JarEl: TR, Henry Z. No, Agondonters is only a qualified status; it is not
the only status. There are many, many roads and paths to Paradise, but
within the network of perfection in the Universes there is tremendous work
to be done and tremendous opportunity for advancing. The Universe needs to
tap all of its resources and Agondonter is a resource.

The three defaults of which this particular planet suffered, suffered these
defaults primarily because the spiritual beings in charge had not
sufficiently been tested, such was required for duty in this world. Had
they been tested on a rebellion sphere their chances of default would have
been lessened. Yet even so this world produced such as Van the
stead-fast. There were many progenies from the material son and daughter
who were also loyal and many of the Midwayers were loyal and still are.
There are also many rehabilitated beings who have reconditioned into
loyalty and there are you here who are loyal.

There is a great and tremendous future for this world. The great and
tremendous future is not at some point, it is in the daily creating in the
moment of now, that is the tremendous future. The decisions and acts of
courage today are God’s consequence for tomorrow. The planet will benefit
in the long run. It is very difficult to understand that no small act goes
unnoticed, that it is all part of the aggregate which holds the spiritual
context of this world. Take for example, you are in your car on the freeway
and you make a gesture of kindness where you allow someone to move in front
of you without reacting in an aggressive manner. All of a sudden that
person is so thankful and can drive and feel OK about themselves that they
might do something else for somebody else that day. If you would track it
or could track it you may find that this may create a pattern of something
that may move through two hundred and fifty years of life. That is
profound, isn’t it? That one simple act can keep repeating itself. The
concept is that these simple acts will begin to harmonize. Right now most
of these simple acts are still in the atomic stage, they are bombarding
each other, but at some point, and even now, they are beginning to
harmonize. It is a tremendous task, an intellectual/conceptual task to
understand that we can all have different beliefs, come from different
backgrounds, different genetic origins, eat different foods, have different
forms of entertainment and still come together and work together for the
betterment of mankind as a whole. That is still an extremely abstract
concept in the human genetic consciousness. It is important to shed light
into these concepts. It is OK for all of us to be individual, to think
differently, and even have different beliefs; different religions;
different homes. At some point even if and when this world reaches Light
and Life these beings, these humans will have to go to the Mansion Worlds
and finally to the Constellations where here again you are going to meet
beings who are completely unique and different from you, just as arrogant
and self-righteous as you are, just as proud. Yet you will have to work
together for something greater than yourself. The survival of the group,
the survival of the group is much more important than the survival of the
individual. The individual can only survive when the group can accept the
individual. Think of what I’m saying. Are there any questions?

Stella: Then the individuals such as the children and the women and the
men who are being exploited around the world almost like slaves, don’t
count? They are individuals.

JarEl: TR, Henry Z. The group counts. The family, the human race as a
whole group counts. All the actions of an ideal world go to supporting all
of the individuals in the group. Right now what you have on Urantia are
not groups of individuals, you have groups of people surrounding an
individual in power or in charge who is influencing every other individual
how to think and what to do, in explicit conflict to what other groups of
individuals are doing. So what you have is all of these groups fighting
each other. Once the groups realize that the individual is not as
important as the group, that the ego is not as important as God’s will,
because God’s will is with the group, the planet and its inhabitants as a
whole. True, God does indwell the individual for the express purpose to
modify and transform that individual. In an ideal whole you can see this
happening more and more. You are begin to get a sense of it on your world,
especially in yourselves. This is why on a personal level of spirituality
everything that you do is important. This is what I was speaking of in the
lesson tonight. Every little thing that you do, things that you take for
granted. Every breath that you take gives life an expression to
God. Every thought that crosses the consciousness in your mind gives
expression to God or in some instances holds you back from giving the
proper expression at that moment. A lot of people are thinking negative,
it is dysfunctional, and it’s not serving them. So it is not an
understatement when I say that Urantia is the most fertile of soil for
spiritual growth, for there is tremendous work to be done. Tremendous,
tremendous opportunity for consciousness and in doing God’s will, you
invariably learn who you are and who you are becoming. Because you become
known for what you do and how you do it. Any other concerns?

Lucille: How do we know if we are doing God’s will?

JarEl: TR, Henry Z. Well, that is a very good question Lucille. That is
like saying, how do we know that we are not doing God’s will? That is also
a good statement isn’t it? If God has something specific for you to do, he
will make it known to you. God’s will is not necessarily some grand edict
that proceeds from some celestial palace. God’s will is inherent in the
life form which was implanted on this world. It is in your genetics, you
carry God’s will in your blood: the will to live, the will to love, the
desire to be better tomorrow than you were yesterday, that is a large part
of God’s will. And there are those of you who exhibit propensities for
certain things that are needed in the spiritual sense, especially those of
you who are receptive to the spiritual mode of operation. These things are
revealed to you also. This is all part of God’s will. God’s will is
multi-level, multi-dimensional and it exists beyond time and space. It
encompasses pre-birth as well as post-death. God’s will is this world and
you on it with all the plants and animals and life as it is attaining
itself are God’s will. Conflict resolution, negotiation and relationships
are just as much a part of God’s will as changing personal negative habits
in your life: learning how to be a better person, a better parent, a better
lover, a better husband, a better wife, a better person in the work
place. God’s will is also this small simple grain size aggregate that I
was talking about that holds the big chunks of conscious achievements
together, any other thoughts?

Larry: I have often thought or asked whether I was doing God’s will or not
and just recently I have come to the understanding that God’s will is when
we are being positive, when we are doing acts of love and doing things with
a passion. When we treat every situation and do it in God’s love and we do
it with passion and we really get excited about it, this is God’s will, we
are moving forward. So it is really God’s will that we make choices, make
decisions and then we follow through by our actions. Those actions are
being positive, being loving, being kind and just being passionate about
it. If you are doing that then you don’t have to worry what is God’s will
because you are acting in the situation that you are in right now and you
are just doing it out of love, you are doing it out of concern. You want
to be a better person and you want to help people.

JarEl: TR, Henry Z. Exactly, God’s will can actually be a way of
living. It can actually become second nature, you can actually own it, and
you don’t have to question it. It is not important for you to dictate
everyone’s behavior. They have someone inside of them dictating
behavior. They are either listening or they are not listening. When you
begin to listen and you are conscious you are doing God’s will because you
are responding to God’s consciousness within you, are you not? This is
exactly what Larry is saying. It does not necessarily have to be something
as profound as a biblical revelation, “Take my people out of bondage and
walk across the water into a foreign land and I will make thee green
verdant pastoral pastures.”

Donna: Love is the desire to do good to another.

JarEl: TR, Henry Z. I think if you are really consternating on what’s
God’s will then just have the guts to ask God what it is he wants of you
and he will bring it to you. Then you can ask yourself, “am I doing what
he has asked me to do or am I not.”

Larry: Actually every decision we make is a part of God’s will, acting on
what he is bringing to us and acting on the plan he has for us.

JarEl: TR, Henry Z. It does come down to that, doesn’t it? You either
choose to move forward

you see this is one of the doubtful confusing
concepts which exist on a rebellious sphere, such as this. This is why the
plan originally for the Princes’ staff to come down here was to settle into
the culture and to propagate God’s will. So that at this stage of the game
it would be way automatic, as a matter of fact it would already be the dawn
age of Light and Life had the rebellion not happened. You have a lot of
the technological achievements already necessary for Light and Life. You
have not qualified yet with the human condition part. So it would have
already been part of your heritage that you just would have accepted, it
would not have been something that people would have gone around
questioning. They are already in the active and service-oriented mode, that
is how you live and that is how everyone lives. You don’t have people
sabotaging your situations and things; confusing and confounding things and
trying to cut people off and steal, rob and rape; plunder and confuse and
destroy and arsonists. You would not have all of that.

So as Agondonters, as those of you who have believed without seeing, it is
more like what Larry has said, every decision you make, you are either
consciously working with God’s plan or you are in some form working against
it. It is not so important to judge, it will become obvious to you if you
are working against it or you are working towards it. In general if you
are working towards it, it becomes a little easier. If you are working
against it

.God’s plan is not going to allow a lot of wrong doing to come
into it. It is not going to bring a lot of evil into its patterning. It
can’t because it has to resonate with love, like Donna was saying. Love is
God’s matrix of existence in time and space. It is the pattern of reality,
of spiritual reality, love. If you put it on a balance scale and does not
match some love quotient, you can’t sell it as God’s will. You just can’t,
can you? It has to have some love quotient, some portion of love. That is
the gold standard: LOVE. God does not take the federal reserve notes, he
takes the Gold Standard, he takes the real thing. God wants the love, the
thankfulness, the acknowledgement, the forgiveness. He wants the forgiving
of yourself. He is not asking you to run all over the world, is he? There
is enough right where you are standing. There is enough to do. Thank you
very much and I look forward to seeing you again, have a pleasant and
wonderful Thanksgiving.

All: Thank you JarEl.
