Topics: Peace Which Passes Understanding, Pride
Teachers: Lantarnek, Jessona
August 7, 2005
* Lantarnek (Jonathan TR): Greetings to each of you, this is
Lantarnek. I will make some comments regarding a familiar
phrase, peace which passes understanding.
You are familiar with the accurate interpretation that this
peace spoken of is a peace that transcends all understanding,
that on the level of spirit you have the confidence, a sense of
belonging, and divine care which prevails in spite of
difficulties, in spite of confusion, and that while you seek to
comprehend the nature of reality, the order of the universe, to
grow in enlightenment and wisdom, regardless of your attainment,
of your insight, of your knowledge that peace reigns supreme,
overlays all. It makes up for the deficiencies and crowns your
attainments. Today I will adjust this phrase in light of our
ever constant urge to you to be of service to your fellows.
Many a soul prays to the God they trust, reaches out to the
Divine Source for guidance, for help, for assurance. Many, far
too many, wish for the divine voice to speak directly to their
ear to confirm, to comfort, and to uplift. Yet with the
apparent silence to the material mind the faith of the child of
God grows ever stronger and learns to discern in the everyday
episodes the answer to the prayer, learns to sense the divine
presence warming the soul, learns to act upon the guidance
without overt and direct phraseology, no orders from above
written in contract. There are those however who lose that
faith or perhaps have never initiated the faith, and there is
your mission. You are the ones who pass understanding to your
fellows. You are the microphone in which they may speak to
Father. They may not know it at the time, and you in all humble
stature do not broadcast such a condition. You simply sit as
does the master for all his children and listen and honor and
love. In so doing this soul receives the touch of God, begins
to respond to realitys adjustments, makes discerning choices,
trusts a fellows advice, and begins to believe in their own
ability to correct what needs adjustment or to venture forward
into the unknown.
While the spirit of the Father rises within, the spirit of
a brother or sister approaches from outside, and many
personalities require your tangible external presence for them
to recognize the presence in the soul of Father Spirit. It is a
circuitry, one within the great circuitry of the Fathers
personality. It is the energy of love, of brotherhood. This
prepares the mind of another to come into a deeper
understanding. It is yours to give. It is an easy gift to give,
for much of it entails simply being compassionate, receptive,
and accepting. You need not be prepared with great discourse;
it is that arm of love around another that opens the channel for
their own upliftment.
In lightness I say I hope this has passed understanding
your way. I open the floor to your comments, and there are
others with me who also are willing to address you.
Ginny: We were talking earlier about progress being
delayed on this planet. Can you explain a little how that
works? Is it something we need to pay attention to? I know the
divine plans are progressing. What weight does this warning
* Lantarnek: We have spent many years in your awareness
preparing for the transition of Urantia from a world in
quarantine to a world in the path of normal progress. It has
been to date successful. While all celestial assistants are
ever busy about the work of the world, there still remains one
critical factor that will impede or foster this ongoing
transition, and that is the willingness of humankind.
Many upon your world are willing to the extent that they
are active in promoting their beliefs, their philosophies, and
religions. Many are convinced that their orientations are
correct and to be promoted. These are good responses to
convictions and to devotions. But what has yet to truly
function freely is the childlike turning of the ear to God, to
spirit guidance, to set aside the often conceit-filled sense of
correctness, to return in humility, to divine guidance, to be
born anew in the willingness to learn anew to change thought, to
adjust behavior, regardless of teachings, of standards, of
You are examples of ones who are willing to take to your
knees and learn from spirit. Many on your globe do, but far too
many take it upon themselves to be the directors, to be the
creators, of the planets destiny ignoring the greater oversight
of celestial guidance. When this transition occurs there will
be the speeding up of progress on this world and the joining in
alliance of the many of you terrestrials and the many of us
I hope this addresses your questions.
Ginny: Yes, it has. Is this a result of ignorance on our
parts, or is there a deliberate effort on this planet to keep
this from happening?
* Lantarnek: It is largely the false confidence of pride.
Many in positions of power, institutions or governments or
businesses, were first inspired, early on received a realization
of what could be but failed to continually receive guidance,
closed the ears, and took it upon themselves to take up the
problems, ran off on their own without having developed greater
insight and deeper wisdom. It is pride that closed the ears and
dampened the interest for further revelation, for greater
training. So the efforts made are born from incompleteness, and
that incompleteness does reveal itself to those who do perceive
as a form of ignorance, but it is of origin in the pride that
says, I see, Ill do it myself, failing to develop a teamwork
with higher beings, failing to continue the development of the
perception of higher truth.
Ginny: We each have our pride to deal with, but it sounds
like you described the US government!
Working with ourselves can help build the critical mass
that we need to give more strength to spirit reality.
* Jessona: I am Jessona, and I will take up, as Lantarnek
has had to tend to another assignment.
Yes, you are correct. We master seraphim are directly
engaged with human beings like yourselves who are willing to
actively serve for the administration of this planet. It is
your cooperation with us that allows the administrators of this
world to make adjustments in all arenas of human life, the home,
the church, your governments, your businesses. So you do bring
us great joy to have you so willing to transform yourselves that
you may be a beacon of light that others may see and take up the
same purpose to help promote truth, to be goodness, and to
The larger bodies of power on your world that are far too
complex for one individual to have much impact upon are in the
hands of the Magisterial Mission. These ministers under
Monjoronson are working with group impinging upon group of human
beings, not just the individuals, but the entire corporate
assemblies. There is in a sense an ascension of experience
available to mankind in this large assembly of peoples. These
bodies of power must also grow from children to adults, must
pass through many phases similar to a single human being. While
you will have some, though limited, impact, trust the
Magisterial Mission to have an overarching impact. It will take
much time, for these assemblies grow more slowly and are
transformed over greater periods of time than can an individual
soul which may awaken overnight.
Evelyn: I appreciate in Lantarneks message that what we
each can do is be compassionate, receptive, and accepting. Just
listening, being a sounding board, letting someone talk and make
their own discoveries by expressing themselves and our being
there to express to, being encouraging; that is very individual.
That is something we all can do in all walks of life at any age.
I didnt quite understand being a microphone for God. I
understand the sounding board aspect.
* Jessona: His use of the metaphor of the microphone is
quite similar to your metaphor of a sounding board. The
difference is that a sounding board is reflective where the
individual recognizes that you are listening, that it is
touching you, and you are giving feedback that you are
receiving. A microphone passes through you and on to Father.
While the individual may not consciously be aware that Father is
listening, that sense of passage is sensed deeper than they
recognize, and they receive the feeling that the prayer, their
expression to you in words, is reaching spirit, that it is being
validated and recognized, that you are the means whereby another
may trust that their inner longings are being truly heard, not
by simply a brother or sister, but also by the Divine Parent.
If you listen with this in your mind you are assisted in spirit
and you more consciously cooperate with spirits engagement with
that other individual. This metaphor is simply to underline the
partnership you have with spirit when you are tending to the
needs of a fellow.
Evelyn: Thats very clarifying, thank you.
