Teachers: Rayson, Elyon

November 21, 2004

*	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, 
giving effort.
	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.  
Thank you.

*	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 
may have.

	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 can’t 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 aren’t 
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.
