Ham: Greetings, children, I am Ham and I am happy that you have chosen
to be here this evening. This evening it is good to discuss the waters
of truth. In this universe, it is true that the Master himself is the
font of all truth. From him go forth the living waters believers seek.
From him originates these circuits of spiritual truth. No man may go to
the Father but through him and through his truth.

Each person longs for the cool, clear draft of truth. In truth there is
no shadow of unreality, no uncertainty as to what it is. There is only
one thing that is water and there is only one thing that is truth.

The Master also said, man does not live by bread alone but by every word
that proceeds from the mouth of God. This living truth comes by way of
our Master, Michael of Nebadon, Jesus of Nazareth. When you uphold
truth, you uphold him. When you give truth, you give of him, and when
you receive truth you receive from him.

Each of you thirsts for truth and hungers for righteousness. This
seeking, this urge, is proof that you have indeed entered the kingdom of
heaven. Certainly you are questing after assurance and certainly you
will receive that assurance in your hearts. But the waters of truth must
flow within you. It must rise up so that your cup runneth over and gives
truth to those around you and waters their souls with your love.

The truth the Master brings is not always an easy truth. Sometimes the
ground of your soul is so hardened that it runs in rivulets down well
worn paths in your soul. It takes time for the soul to saturate with
water, with truth, and sometimes this truth must be applied gradually.
Many times I have said to you the way of faith is not easy. It is not a
way to avoid the unpleasantness of reality. You, my friends, have faced
and are facing many hard truths squarely. Continue then to find your way
and in doing so become that fount of living water. Then, all who thirst
will come to you.

What are your questions?

Q: Is truth just another word for what is real?

Ham: No. Truth is more than simple reality. Truth is the spiritual value
within that reality as well.

Q: IâEUR^(TM)d like to know how I can turn my life over to the Master?

Ham: My son, it is wonderful that would ask such a question. True desire
and prayer are your aids. It is a matter of time and of sustaining your
will. You have come very far and are undergoing great spiritual changes
or alterations within your being. Trust in your higher self. Seek after
true self-respect and also when you find the thread of love in your
heart, cling to this. Before long, this small rivulet will be clear pool
encompassing your being. Love and truth are indeed one. Ponder this my
son, you do well.

Q: Do you have anything for Rebecca?

Ham: Certainly my daughter. Fear not for your work is developing just
fine. You are following the path that has been set before you. Look
neither to the left nor the right, but continue.

Q: Jarad?

Ham: My son Jarad, it is for you to be supportive of Rebecca as she has
tirelessly and unflaggingly been supportive of you.

Q: I'm not very good at helping someone else about writing and all, I
just discovered that. All I know is how I write but that is not
appropriate for her, she has to do her own deal anyway.

Ham: Nevertheless, it is your role to be supportive of her as she has
been supportive of you.

It is hard to be tactful and the only way I know to write is a story. I
thought I has been supportive, I have been trying to be.

Ham: Nonetheless, I stand by my statement. It is for you to be
supportive of Rebecca as she has been supportive of you.

Q: I understand. I slide into the authoritative know it all role and she
slides into the defensive deal and nobody has hard feelings about that.....

Ham: Very well, are there further questions at this time?

Q: Ham, do you have any counsel for me this evening?

Ham: Yes my son, you do very well. As your way and your life continues
to develop, you yourself must understand that the spiritual must come
first. When you make the spiritual your lifeâEUR^(TM)s center, all else
will be added unto you. So, be at peace my son. Your way is firm but
things will be ever easier for you when you make the decision to
surrender more and more to the spirit. You are a man who sees deeply at
times but then turns back towards the shallows for comfort. Is this helping?

Q: Yes, thank you Ham.

Q: Ham, may I ask for your advice and counsel for my own self please?

Ham: Certainly, my daughter, remember that this situation, just as it
is, is filled with lessons. Human suffering does have purpose and the
pain along with the dreadful uncertainty you feel will leave you much
wiser and more at peace in the future. This is not an easy part you have
here. Yours is the more difficult one. But through this time period,
much more good will be gained than anything you can imagine now. It is
important that you take some time for yourself away from the constant
impetus to be doing something. Take one day at a time and be assured
that your companion will one day fully appreciate the sacrifices you
have made and the lengths you have gone to. You do very well my dear, be
at peace.

Q: May I ask for a message for Jim?

Ham: Certainly. My son, be at peace. Think now only on the spirit and on
how to find your way in the spirit. The time you have now is given for a
purpose. Use it well. It is a difficult thing to be as you are in a kind
of limbo of unknowing. But this also is good and is merciful. Find peace
with your loved ones and peace with God.

Q: May I have a personal message please?

Ham: Certainly my son. You are doing very well and it is good to have
these strong feelings for your brother. Be at peace concerning these
things for the FatherâEUR^(TM)s will will be done. You have a life ahead
of you my son and it would not do for you to be harming yourself and
your future for a very uncertain outcome. Be at peace and have
understanding that everyone has done what they thought best and so these
things must be in accordance with the FatherâEUR^(TM)s will.

Q: Do have a personal message for Norbert?

Ham: Norbert my son, you do well. Continue to seek after the spirit and
all else will come into perspective. Your life is moving forward as it
should, even though at times it may seem not to be. Have peace my son.

Q: Do you have a personal message for Charlie B?

Ham: My son, you do well. Gradually you are coming into a gentle love
for yourself and this gentle love spills out to others. All is well.

Q: Do you have any feedback for me this week?

Ham: Of course, my son. You continue to grow in the spirit and to find
your spiritual path more readily and easily. Things of the spirit are
now your first thought, not an after consideration and this great shift
has occurred just recently. All of this bodes well for the future. The
spirit is like the bow of a ship parting the waters. It is the spirit
that gives you the way. Be at peace then my son, you do very well.

Are there any further questions? Very well then, as always, my love and
my prayers go with you each. Drive safely in this weather. Watch for
unexpected hazards. That is all, farewell.
