Teachers: Rayson, Elyon

* Rayson (Jonathan TR): Rayson here, I salute you.
Divine energy and divine love are one. Divine energy is
all powerful; divine love, pure. These two are manifest in your
dimension in your presence as your body and as your soul. You
therefore are the expression of God in minute form. This
expression is latent until you recognize and allow spirit to
function. When you are born in spirit, you are accepting of
your placement in the holy family. Then is unleashed the energy
of eternity and the love. When your will accepts the momentum
of divine will as expressed throughout this universe and
localized around your being, you have made a most significant
choice which unleashes potentials for your advancement. I
recognize in you the activation of this energy and love. The
light is apparent; the fragrance is sweet.
In discipline of a spiritual nature it is taught that you
practice, that you apply yourself to the teachings you come to
understand in order to transform yourself from a disassociated,
independent creature into a truth-aligned, God-absorbed child of
the Father. Also it is taught that you merely allow and spirit
will do the work. These two procedures are not contradictory.
Imagine holding a young child in your arms. As that child leaps
into your arms you allow, you accept, you receive. But for that
child to remain stable in your grasp, you practice, that is, you
hold firmly, carefully, tenderly, with effort. Such is your
spirit work, ever accepting and receiving and always applying,
In the core of your being is the presence of God.
Unfolding, blossoming within the soil of you is this presence
being transformed through your experience into soul. It is the
Father finding expression in His child, not as Himself alone,
but in partnership with His daughter and His son. It is a
solemn endeavor, holy in its effort. You are graced, and in
this grace you grow, and in this growth you give. In the entire
cycle the Creator and creatures join in communion and in joy in
the fellowship of the unfolding of life and the awakening to
Take my words into meditation. I will return another day.
* Elyon: Greetings, this is Elyon. It is a delight to have
my longterm friend Rayson with me in our classroom. He is one
who does not mess around. This fellow is one of the most
dedicated teachers in this mission. He is ever investigating
ways whereby humankind may advance and not so much in the single
direction of planetary progress and not only singly in the
expanding direction of personal growth. His desire is for the
simultaneous unfolding of both of these endeavors. His
orientation I have adopted as well, as you have noted in my
lessons over time. This is your twofold purpose.
The midwayers have informed you that Jesus went about doing
good. He did that not for himself; he did that for others. But
he also highly valued his time alone with the Father. While
this time did assist his fellows, he did so for himself, for
that interlude is soul-charging, mentally refreshing, and
emotionally calming. This state of being blesses your fellows
even while the turmoil of life rages on. Goodness comes about
through contact with the grace of God.
As you grow, little by little the planet advances. As your
love and light is witnessed, others are inspired and, again, a
little more the planet advances.
Nurture your hope; foster your ideals through action.
While the Father has bestowed upon you His spirit fruit, it is
your responsibility to partake, to assimilate, to be
transformed. In this you will express spirit.
Much has been expressed today for you to consider, to
reflect upon. I will allow time for questions and comments you
Evelyn: I like how you pointed out that allowing spirit
and practicing spiritual disciplines are two sides of the same
coin. We tend to think in dichotomies, black and white, that if
you allow spirit you cant force it. I think you clarified that
we can do both and they build on each other. Similarly, working
on planetary growth and working on personal growth arent
opposites, either. They contribute to each other.
* Elyon: I respond by bringing to your mind your classic
image of the praying hands. These two hands are apparently
opposite in configuration, but joined together is an act that is
complementary and unified in the prayer.
Thank you, my friends, for welcoming me into your awareness
today and for the love we share. Honor that which is sacred in
your fellows, for it is the same source of the divine that you
also hold within you. I take my leave.
