* Elyon (Jonathan TR): Greetings, this is Elyon. I extend my embrace to
all and welcome the attention.

We are long in our association and have come to appreciate the value of
trust; it is an important dimension in your spiritual unfoldment. It is the
necessary ingredient to walking on water, for that is what you do as you
venture into new territory as an ascending soul. The unfamiliarity is the
first potential impediment to progress, and it is at that crucial time that
you can confound your development with additional blockages such as fear.
But you are ones who have learned to trust and have, through experience,
discovered the stability of such an exercise. It has rewarded you as you
have discovered higher levels of awareness and deeper connections in love
and communion.

I am going to review a concept I presented on trust before, a static trust
and a dynamic trust. The first trust is the one that knows that, when it
holds tightly for stability, that to which you cling is stable enough to
hold you, a solid grounding trust. One example of that trust is your trust
in Michael. It’s unshakable. It is that rock upon which your foundation is

The other trust, dynamic trust, is the growth promoting trust where you are
willing to take a leap, to venture forth, to be uncertain long enough to
gain insight. It is through repeated cycles that you develop this trust and
even come to relish the adventure. It is this trust that you use to venture
into the Monjoronson journey.

When I first came to your circle, you exercised this trust, and I have come
to witness your shift to the static trust where you are assured of my
beneficence and love for you.

These are my opening words for our gathering today, and I will give over to
my associates that they may also share with you.

* Monjoronson (Mark): I greet you as well, I am Monjoronson here to accept
your invitation to dance the spirit dance with you in this hour. It is my
desire at this time to take some concepts that I have been exposed to that
are contributed by your fellow seekers and to revisit these concepts for the
benefit of a different audience today. I will attempt to do this Elyon style
and use pictures and metaphors, so perhaps you will follow along with me in
your mind’s eye.

Picture yourself coming upon a mountain stream as you traverse your trail in
life. There is a footbridge across this stream, and as you approach it your
focus is a broad one. You are engaged in defining the parameters of the
stream, the bridge that crosses it, the elements involved in your
negotiation of this bridge. You approach such a bridge and stop half way.
The first gaze that you have out upon this stream is one of initial
[sizing?], how wide is it? Is it bubbling or is it calm? Is it rushing or
is it slow? Your focus at that time is on the broad picture, and you make a
rather instantaneous assessment of the environment and the surroundings and
your relationship to them.

As you pause on this footbridge and reflect you let your gaze look down upon
the water, and you allow yourself a shift in focus. Rather than seeing the
stream as a whole or larger characteristics, you observe a small eddy to the
side. You direct your focus to this point. You then adjust your focus once
again and peer deeply into the small pool where you observe an entire
environment which was hidden beneath the water that was not observable until
you approached and changed your focus. As a result you have pierced
through, and you are able to see perhaps the tadpoles below and the movement
of the water, vegetation flowing in the streams.

Without redirecting your gaze you then once again change your focus and see
another whole dimension. You witness yourself in the reflection and beyond
you the clouds and the heavens above.

I share this story with you to illustrate that you may change the focus
repeatedly without changing your position; without altering your posture you
may gaze either more deeply or pull back ... and see the reflection of
yourself. Likewise when you go through your days and you change your focus
at times. You pull up to a stoplight, and your first gaze is an instant
size up of your environment and your association to it. Are there vehicles
in front of you? Do you stop now? What is your role to play? Then you
find yourself caught at the light and you pause.

You then realize that your gas gauge is reading low, that the heater is
turned on too high, and you shift your focus to your more internal
environment of your vehicle. If you are delayed at this point you may
become bored with that shift in focus and begin to look around you and
determine that there is a brother or sister sitting next to you in their
vehicle you have not noticed; you were focused in a different place. By
shifting your focus you became aware of the reality that existed right next
to you.

So it goes throughout your day; your focus is constantly shifting from your
initial size up, to your more considered perception, to perhaps even a level
of thoughtful contemplation. In this way you are shifting gears back and
forth constantly, and it is our exercise to discern that this is indeed
occurring and to decide what level we will chose to focus on.

I will point out that if you had enough time stopped in traffic jam yo may
choose as well to shut out all external observation and view within shifting
your focus again. As you go through your daily lives you can realize this
shift happens and choose to make this change in focus more with willful
intention, and realizing that you have not altered your position, only your
focus you may then begin to realize that all the aspects are present
simultaneously. There is reality in each one of these observations.

They all exist side by side. It is merely where you choose to look at any
one time. I am grateful for this t hought contribution into the pool of
wisdom that you may then draw from. This analogy may strike chords of
resonance among all who have observed these shifts and perhaps facilitate
awareness that it is a matter of simple focus. That is my chosen
contribution for this student body here today, and I will pull back and
allow any other form of interaction. Thank you. Farewell.

* Lantarnek (Jonathan): This is Lantarnek. For a moment draw your mind's
attention to the indwelling spirit. Each one of you no doubt has a form by
which you perceive or interface with this presense. May I take you down a
path? Draw attention to your physical form. This is the three dimensional
location that you call yourself “you”. It is your public self. Then there
is your more private being, your mind with your thoughts and your feelings
and perceptions. Sometimes you externalize them; other times they remain
private. They are yours; they are you.

But you who sit in stillness also have come to recognize the one that sits
behind all this internal activity. Often this is called the “real” you. Now
we are looking toward Father’s presence from this position. Do you turn
around to see Him? Do you look outward? Do you turn deeper into yourself?
There is no separation, no distance. It is a connection only inaccurately
said as such. It is so deep, so intertwined, as to be indistinguishable.
When you are in your peripherals it is hard to notice it. When you are in
your silence there it is known. May you be at peace.
