* Elyon (Jonathan TR): Greetings to you, this is your old
friend Elyon. I refer to myself as old friend not only in
reference to our eleven years of association but also to the
marking of the anniversary of my life initiation many, many,
many years ago. It is a reflective moment to ponder my
ascension and to view the historical milestones that have been
encountered, some with great felicity, others with great effort
and tribulation. Along the way I have struggled just as you
with inadequacies and have learned to adopt skills which replace
those faults and frailties. I have also learned to amplify
residential traits that they may provide the force necessary to
attain my goal of that time.
When one is seeking to reach a new level of human status as
a spirit being, there is naturally present both your current
possessions of ability and the apparent absence of necessary
skills. One who has adequate self worth will merely assess this
ratio of ability and inadequacy and determine preliminary
activities that would result in filling in for lack and
activating that which you possess in ability at that moment. To
discover within oneself an absence of a talent or skill is not
defeating of the will, does not diminish enthusiasm. When one
understands that the core of your being is that you are a child
of God, that you are indwelt by God, all the rest that surrounds
this core is temporary and transient. While it is a form of
window dressing to your true being, it may be supplemented or
replaced at any time. So, valuing your spirit being, you
willingly discard or adopt traits and talents necessary to
It is when one forgets the core of being and identifies
with peripheral manifestations that one can become confused and
cease to strive or, perhaps more disastrously, to strive
erroneously, under a false assumption that one is prepared to
reach a level of attainment of which one has not done the
I have often stressed stillness because it is an interval
of time where you may remind yourself of the center of spirit,
to reset your mind to orient from center outward and thereby
better prioritize your undertakings and better arrange your
skills and talents that they apply to your goals rather than
define what goals you seek.
Upon becoming anchored in this central view of your being
you are then best able to foster the faith of your fellows, for
you will, as did Jesus, look past, look through, the
circumfrential traits of another and perceive the spirit within.
A seeking soul will resonate to your perception of their true
being and will become gladdened that there is recognition of
ones self by another, independent of external presentation, of
historical success and failure in life, of whether the goals of
the future are forward thinking or stagnant.
When Jesus looked upon another, that other found new-found
faith, for the gaze of the master was penetrating, never
judgmental, always loving. When this occurred that individual
began to reshape his life. Jesus did not spend hours upon hours
in psychological counseling and spiritual training for these
individuals to change themselves. They willingly began to adopt
the higher ideals they already were glimpsing. They only needed
the confirmation of spirit to begin to trust their own inner
compass, their own sensitivity to truth. Indeed, it is helpful
to be educational when another is seeking guidance, but
underlying that, foundational to that effort, is the revelation
of the sense of belonging to God, that acceptance and love.
When this is realized, when it is in-valued, then any being is
capable of growing and of growing more rapidly.
Positioned in this manner growth is not simply the
rearrangement of tendencies, skills, talents, of mental
orientation. It is firstly the motivation of the inner self and
then, secondly, the selection of any of your other qualities
that may be applied at any time for self advancement.
All too often one will continually rearrange abilities,
acquire, discard, associate, reassociate all the while thinking
there is improvement in ones growth. It is not how well
equipped you are, but how well you use what you have, that
fosters your growth. As you uphold this same truth in others
you foster their growth.
I am desirous at this time to engage in dialogue. Thank
you for receiving my lesson.
Evelyn: Traits and talents that come to mind that are
spirit based are integrity, honesty, sensitivity to others,
fruits of the spirit. Im sure theres other practical things
as well like math skills, chemistry, and those sorts of talents.
* Elyon: These that you have listed illustrate both the
inner abilities and your more peripheral abilities. Integrity
is a fine choice for illustration, for it is a recognition of
your wholesomeness. I do not mean that merely in the social
usage but rather in your comprehension of your possession of
abilities and/or lacks.
You mention some abilities such as math skills. This is a
more peripheral skill, but integrity is the understanding of
your current level of accomplishment in mathematics. You apply
your current skill in a useful manner in the current moment when
needed. And you understand when you must acquire higher levels
to function mathematically in the accomplishment of a task
currently beyond your level. Integrity fosters such further
development, for pride does not prevent you from deeper
learning. Embarrassment does not cause you to shy away from the
rigors involved in that higher accomplishment.
Evelyn: If I followed what you were saying, if our focus
is on our spirits growth and the traits and talents needed, if
that is the focus rather than the transient needs of daily life,
that builds the faith of others who see us. Is that what you
are driving at?
* Elyon: Yes, you have perceived correctly. Imagine if you
will a runner. When one becomes a skillful runner it is due to
many hours of training. Along the way in that training there
are certain actions adopted by that individual, the type of
shoes worn, the type of diet undertaken, rest, stretching, the
type of garments worn, and the course that is run. All these
are peripheral. The spirit is the runner, and when another
views that runner and is inspired, it is the running individual
that motivates spirit. It is not the shoes, it is not the
shirt, that will inspire one who truly seeks that attainment; it
is the spirit manifestation. Those who are distracted by the
peripherals will adorn themselves and mock the behaviors but
lose motivation for lack of spirit incentive. I hope this
illustrates our point.
Evelyn: Our advertising world would have us think
* Jessona: This is Jessona. Greetings to you all. It is my
desire this morning to draw you into a sphere of light.
Imagine yourselves in the same physical location. Imagine
each other at your present location, all of you simultaneously
with everyone else. Your camaraderie, your love, is felt even
without physical bodies nearby. Where two or three are gathered
there is Michael. Though you are apart by many miles you are
gathered and Michael is present. Extend this association of
love to the rest in your group who are not currently present.
Let your sphere expand. Close the gap of distance making them
present as well.
Now each of you may expand this sphere to those you
personally think of who would benefit from the loving energy of
brotherhood and sisterhood. Encompass them with love, with
healing, with happiness.
Jesus said that when he was lifted up, when he became
sovereign of Nebadon, he would draw all to him. Each one of you
dedicated to the mission of Michael is a point from which
Michael extends his drawing power to bring others in need into
his arms. While you move toward Michael as he draws you, you
draw others. This moment of reflection upon your friends and
fellows is a moment of extending the drawing power of Michael.
Send that love. Draw that love.
Thank you, friends.
* Elyon: This is Elyon. I wish to release you from the
classroom today to allow you to undertake your daily activities.
I am looking forward to our gathering over your weekend of
celebrating the ascension of Michael from Urantia. It is a
profound moment that occurred so long ago on your world, not
only for your world but for all of Nebadon. It is beautiful to
be together to celebrate the joy of the attainment of
sovereignty by Michael and the opening of hither to unavailable
potentials of all creatures across this local universe.
Much has changed in Nebadon since that eventful period of
time, the time of Michaels bestowal attainments and sovereignty
attainment. A new chapter was born, and we are all writing the
pages day after day as we live our lives under his guidance. It
is a good time, for everyone knows that each contribution is
expanding the abilities of this local universe to function as an
educational center, a spiritual training ground, for the many
who are seeking to attain Paradise. Mother Spirit and Michael
are ever willing to receive any who seek. Let us celebrate in
joy at this upcoming anniversary.
I take my leave. Farewell.
