For several reasons I am posting a lesson from Ham given to Bill on March
17th, 2000.


Ham (Bill/Isaac): Greetings, my children. This is Ham. I am here with you
this evening on invitation of Daniel and Andronason to share in the teacher
exchange that we will be facilitating more and more as time goes on. Of
course it is a special delight for me to see you as a unified group this
evening with your sisters from the Southland now present in your
midst. (Editor: Two members of the Woods Cross group were present.)

Have no concerns that the membership of the teaching mission is in decline
for the fluctuations in participation are characteristic of all human
groups, and indeed were a source of both joy and anxiety for Michael’s
original apostles.

I wish to speak this evening once again about LOVE. As you mature in your
spiritual progression, as you move from mortal understanding to morontial
mota and gain greater insights, you are also learning that the word love
denotes an ever-greater and expanding reality approaching cosmic
manifestation. Indeed there are many who are beginning to understand that
love is more a matter of the will than it is a matter of feelings. It is
possible for you to choose to love. Your mortal flesh follows suit with
feelings that you would normally attribute as affection.

Love is an attitude, an intention of service toward your brothers and
sisters. Love is the desire to do good to others, and when it is wholly
sincere, it will result in actions. You see, if love was based upon
feelings it would be limited only to those you feel comfortable with and
who you approve of. When our Master entreated us to love our enemies, he
totally transcended the realm of feeling in terms of a door of
entrance. If you are commanded to love your enemies and love were based
upon your feelings, this would be totally absurd and impossible. We are
enjoined to love our enemies. Therefor logically and truly this love is
not ultimately or initially a matter of warm, fuzzy feelings. To love our
enemies is to be God-like and to recognize that the status of “enemy” is in
a large part a perceptive category. The reality of that other person is,
in almost all cases, really as another son or daughter of God.

If your enemy should be not of normal mind then this is of a different
situation, and in that case these words do not apply. The matter of
discernment as to where another person whom you term “enemy” is in fact a
faith son or daughter is not something that you can easily
decide. Therefor we recommend that you take the default position that this
is so—that your enemy is, in fact, a brother or sister of the same Parents
and worthy of love, as you are kin. When you attempt to love an enemy,
think to yourself, what good could I desire for this other person? What
could I pray for, wish for, and even possibly help effect that would be in
the best interest of this, my enemy? To love another is a matter of
intention, a matter of attitude.

Love takes no count of worthiness before the bar of judgmental human
nature. Love is patient and kind. It is not paranoid. It does not
imagine evil about other people, but always expects the best. And as Paul
so beautifully stated, love never fails. Love is the attitude of God. It
is the essence of God’s nature. It was out of God’s loving heart that he
decided to create the worlds of time and space—because he desired to share
his nature, his existence, his joy, with other personalities. Love begets
love. It creates new opportunities. Love rejoices in diversity and in the
expansion of reality. Love is never self-centered, never scraping, stingy,
rude or abrupt. Love expands to embrace all others. Therefor love is the
greatest thing, the greatest reality in the universe. Knowledge is
constantly expanding, and that which is superceded falls away like
scaffolding. Our expectations for the future are imperfect, and will be
fulfilled in ways greater than we can imagine, but love remains the staple,
the foundation, the quest and the eternal prize.

I have completed my comments, and I appreciate the opportunity to once
again address you, my dear students and my dear friends. One moment please.

Daniel (Bob S): I am Daniel, your teacher, guide, and friend, and elder
brother. My children, your attendance tonight is most rewarding to those
of us gathered here to meet with you. The efforts you make to gather at
these weekly sessions (demonstrates) a faith, a courage, an openness which
belies the normal weaknesses of human mortality. I regret I feel unable to
convey to you through the words of your language the importance to which
your elder brothers and sisters attach to your gatherings. For now you
must take my word for it, but I trust by now my word has some importance in
your lives, and until I find a better way to describe it, I trust this will

This evening there are gathered on our side the usual numbers, large
numbers of beings. There is however one additional being here tonight, who
will now take the floor. One moment please.

Rudicia (Bill): Greetings, my name is Rudicia. I am a Destiny Guardian
Seraphim, one of your sisters who rejoices to provide you with ministry,
with comfort, with opportunity, with love. While your world has recognized
us in its cultures and has given us a measure of honor, few are those who
understand or know that one of our purposes is to keep you awake so that
you don’t fall asleep and miss your life, (Laughter.) as the poster so
aptly states. No, we are not sadistic—

Virginia: I knew you were going to say that word. (Laughter.)

Rudicia (Bill): It is not a pleasure for us to inflict circumstances,
except that we take the long view that if you benefit from them and make
the right decisions, they are good medicine.

I am speaking tonight because one of your number has graduated from your
so-called, “veil of tears”, as you will either do in like pattern, or
possibly in fusion transformation. We who remain unseen to you in this
life will be your bosom companions and we will be visible after you leave
this mortal estate. You will understand then how many times we whispered
in your ears, gently nudged you in a direction, but never in violation of
your free will, carried you through some raging waters, and prayed for you
frequently. I speak today so that you will know or at least catch a
glimpse of the love that showers down upon you through the many agencies of
God’s marvelous creation. We, your sisters, just a little above you, are
part of those agencies. Have no concern for Rachel. (Editor: Rachel is
the recently deceased member of the Woods Cross group.) Her ascension
career had already begun in the flesh. She continues her morontia
ascension. Great is the joy of one whose spiritual awareness is of the
caliber of this, your sister, for the mansion worlds do not seem strange,
but have the same flavor of “home” that Paradise has.

In conclusion I would say to try to practice the stillness while you are
doing other things, so that your awareness may continually be lifted and
heightened, that you may be always aware that you are not alone, that you
are in the presence of great love. Thank you for your concentration, your
respect and your cooperation.

Ken: Thank you.
Rudicia (Bill): And now I return the meeting to teacher Daniel.

Daniel (Bob S): My friends, we trust these words from our sister, Rudicia,
will find a home in your intellect and in your souls.

It is now time for questions and answers. If there are comments or
questions we would deem it our responsibility and our great joy to blend
our collective intellect to yours. (Laughter.) Are there questions, my

Alene: I have just a comment. Thank you very much the piece of news about
Rachel. I knew it already. Just to hear it was wonderful. Thank you.

Daniel (Bob S): We take great delight in when possible to provide you with
support, and guidance. We cannot always so assist you in your intellectual
and emotional times of stress. So when we can it is our great pleasure to
be able to put arms around you, so to speak. Are there other questions or

Virginia: Ham, I really appreciate the words you gave concern love. And
certainly intellectually it is easier to love your enemies and to wish them
well and desire the very best for them. It was very nice to know you don’t
have to feel those affectional feelings, because that of course is a very
difficult, emotional experience. When you are at the receiving end, you
don’t understand. I just really appreciated your comments on the whole
lesson. I want to read it again, because I really believe that love is the
answer, but to be able to express it is something else.

Ham (Bill): A word of caution, my dear. Yes, it’s true. Love is not
essentially a feeling, but eventually what the heart intends. And choosing
good intentions for another will eventually lead through the process of
forgiveness to the feelings (which) following suit. This may not occur
completely in the mortal life, but eventually in the reconciliation and the
rapport that develops on the Mansion Worlds and other morontia spheres love
becomes fully unified in intention and in feeling. My emphasis however was
to the essential and initial process, which begins with attitude and
intention. As I said, thank you for your feedback that this was helpful
for you. Also my dear, many, many people struggle ( perhaps I should say
all struggle) at one time or another with this issue of loving one’s enemies.

Virginia: Thank you again, Ham, and I really am looking forward to a full
understanding of my sisters and brothers. Can’t wait. (Laughter.)

Ham (Bill): Yes it is indeed one of the greatest experiences that occurs,
especially to persons from retarded planets such as Urantia, when they
experience the culture of the Morontia Worlds. If your planet were a
normal world by now there would be much more of this occurring. However in
groups such as this and other places, light and life is here. It is just
not here on a planetary basis yet. Are there other comments on my
lesson? I would be eager to interact.

Ken: Yes, Ham. I too enjoyed your lesson, and related it to a lesson your
gave awhile back concerning the fact of going within and letting the Father
guide you. And by doing so understanding this love and respecting your
fellow man, and accepting him as your brother or sister, that eventually by
doing so you can make changes in the material world. I believe that was
your lesson. And I can see the tie in between the two this evening. I
thank you.

Ham (Bill): You are most welcome, Ken. Actually, whether the lesson be
attributed to me or Daniel or any of the rest of our teaching staff, is not
terribly important. The truth of the lesson, however, is. And yes, we
have been teaching these concepts to you since we began. You are rising
imperceptibly, but still in reality, to higher and higher levels of
comprehension, of experience, of soul-growth.

Daniel (Bill): My friends, this is Daniel. Let us stand now and grasp each
other’s hands, and conclude our time together. We will remain with you
while you socialize or share. Thank you for being flexible, and trying
this new format. You see how the timing was most propitious. Oh yes,
Abraham is present and desires to conclude our meeting with prayer.

Abraham (Bill): I am Abraham, your friend, your compatriot, your teacher,
your admirer. Let us worship God.

Oh perfect shining Love, central in the universe and spread ever
throughout, we your children worship you. We adore you. We are
overwhelmed with your goodness and your mercy, with your joy and your heart
of love. We thank you for personality existence, for the grandeur of
choice, and the ability that we are given to co-create with you ourselves
and other manifestations of that ever expanding love that reaches for
perfection, the perfectedness of Supreme experience. I thank you for
these, my friends, my brothers, my sisters who had the courage to share
their hearts with you and believe the words that we have spoken. May they
win the battle with self by surrendering to the power of love and in that
victory share abundantly with everyone they meet. Michael, our creator
brother, we follow your footsteps. We admire you beyond measure. We
desire to be your hands and feet, your voices, your heart of love. May it
be so. Amen.
