* Gabriel (Jonathan TR): Greetings to you all. I am Gabriel.
The nature of all creatures who have the power of volition
is to direct the string of events that occur in your lives. It
is inherent in will power to function as an orchestrator. It is
the nature of time and space to continually flux; never in all
your observation will you discover permanency. You will observe
a relative degree of constancy, but even this will alter as time
proceeds. Since volition has the ability to manage change as it
occurs, it naturally will seek two forms of function: one is to
stabilize change thereby softening transition. The benefit is
continuity from prior condition to a subsequent state of being.
The drawback is a tendency to resist adjustment to a new
position, to a new standing, to a new orientation. Its other
quality is that change in time and space can be directed. It
can be oriented such that some degree of random results may be
eliminated and a goal or an ideal realized. The simple
mechanism of change then becomes development or evolution as in
the case of a personality growth.
Success in adjusting to change is to approach with two
perspectives: one, acceptance, and two, I will use the word
appointment. You who welcome the agitation of spirit, who
welcome the influence of celestial assistance, who are ever
alert to the extraction of meaning, the impress of profundity,
are well developing the acceptance of change, for you have
accumulated experience that testifies to the benefit that such
alterations in your life have brought. You are also increasing
your skill in appointing change to a desired result. As you
have enlarged your soul capacity you have developed personal
skills and a sensitive working relationship with the Divine
Presence that resides within you. This condition increases the
power base of your will, and you are able to direct change to
achieve results that foster your spiritual upliftment, that
assist your fellows in need.
At one point in your development of spiritual maturity
change was much like wind wherein you found it difficult to hold
things in place when the winds of change blew. It was
buffeting, disheveling, upsetting, disquieting. Then as you
accumulated experience and wisdom you discovered the ability to
harness change, to sail with change, to take to flight. Soon it
came to your observation that change was a means of
transportation to new levels of being, and you welcomed the
change. Following such an ascension your horizons expanded;
your map of life became more visible, and you discovered your
ability to steer through change, that the winds of change may
blow in any single direction, and you could sail in numerous
other directions with the assistance of that change. Then you
came to trust that change of an upsetting nature worked for good
as well as a welcome change did.
As there is no steady state of constancy in the temporal
realm, the development of the ability to accept, to adapt, and
to apply through change is your greatest skill. Welcome such
shifting in time as you would gasoline for your motor vehicles.
Take it in, let it provide the power whereby you may steer your
vehicle. Let it create the energy that you may rise upon and go
in the direction you choose. It is an ever present current, and
you have the ability once in motion to go in the direction of
guidance and of your personal goals.
I encourage you all to continue in the development of your
abilities to rise with the transient shifts of time and to
leverage that energy input towards your advancement as a child
of God, as an aware and conscious cosmic citizen.
I am more than happy to take comments from you or to address
Kirk: We might have some heavy changes coming since you
only come to help in major changes.
* Gabriel: Yes, civilization on Urantia is climbing an
extremely steep hill. If you could observe other worlds within
our Nebadon, you would find skills and equipment, if I may use
that term, that assist civilization in such steep ascents.
These skills are developed within the human race over centuries,
and the equipment I speak of, the planetary administrators, are
also available to aid in the climb. Urantia lacks this
preparation, but nonetheless has civilization proceeded. You
are now climbing with fingers and toes, so we have come to toss
you the necessary gear to make the ascent. My Father and your
Father is no respecter of persons, so we are here to aid all of
you to reach the crest to see over the top, to witness before
you the new valley, the new land wherein Urantia may further
grow, harmonize, and fulfill its potential.
Evelyn: From our perspective civilization ascending a steep
slope is pretty daunting as far as wanting to help the process.
Its reassuring that there are personalities in those positions
who have what it takes.
* Gabriel: As with the individual so with your entire
population. There is naturally the occurrence of the
development of other-consciousness. Initially all things
revolve around self. Over time more selves are brought into the
conscious arena, and decisions and behavior are adjusted
accordingly. With your technology you have entered into a
global era and are having to make the same adjustments an
individual does as a young child. There is resistance, a desire
to isolate, and there is present power structures which wish to
dominate the collective rather than share it. You will make the
adjustments; there will be difficult times, and you are assisted
and aided. Eventually your world will undertake the same
process on a larger scale when you enter into interplanetary
relationships. That is quite a distance into the future, but it
is important now for you as a world to interrelate as would a
family with ideal qualities. That is a significant task in
itself at this time. I pledge the assistance of many ministers,
of many angels.
* Elyon: Greetings to you, this is Elyon. I enjoy having the
company of Gabriel. With your interest he is much delighted to
extend friendship. As you increase your spiritual vision you
will be delighted to witness the form and pattern this brilliant
angel takes. Even to me who has been to many worlds and have
risen the ascension ladder some ways, Gabriel stands as a mighty
figure, and I am honored to have him with us today.
Kirk: As are we. Coming from him, telling us to accept and
grow from the change is pretty powerful. It means to me that
change could be rough at times and to hang on to celestial help
for the truth and beauty that comes from change.
* Elyon: Yes and I would draw a close by adding my two cents
worth, as you say. One cent is to be flexible. The second cent
is to apply foresight. If you are flexible to change and apply
foresight you will find that you will welcome such shifting.
When Michael came to your world he did so to fulfill his
mission as a Michael Son and also desired to reveal the Father
to His children. Much change occurred in his life that he had
to adjust and adapt to and to use to fulfill his mission. Some
of what impacted him eliminated his previous plans for his
mission. But he pursued, altered his goals, maximized his time,
and trusted in the guidance of the heavenly Father to work in
the lives of his associates to continue his mission even in his
I extend to you light and love and peace, and I greatly
value our friendship.
Kirk: Its nice to hear from you Elyon. Youve become an
* Elyon: Thank you, friend. Farewell.
