Topics: Benefit of pain
We are a part of your family
Prayer: God we do thank You that You accept us as we are.
Help us to be willing to change that we might be able to be the channel of
love and service to our brothers and sisters. May we be open to what we
might hear tonight. Amen.
DANIEL: Greetings my friends, my colleagues, my coworkers in the
work of the Correcting Time. Again you surprise us with the breadth and
depth of your discussion prior to our lesson tonight to the extent that we
have decided to alter our plans somewhat. We thoroughly enjoy your
willingness to be open and share some very private thoughts and feelings,
which we believe will help everyone here. With that brief introduction, I
now turn the time over to the presenter of our lesson tonight.
MINEARSIA: Greetings, dear friends. I am Minearsia,
Instructor in Residence at this Southeast Idaho Teaching base. Indeed are
we delighted with your discussion and more importantly delighted that you
have reconvened as a family unit sharing your lives with one another with
their ups and downs, hopes and pains and sorrows, joys and achievements.
Tonight I wish to redirect the conversation back to a consideration of
We began this discussion sometime ago, some months ago, and in the
outworking of your individual lives in the intervening time period, you have
had much experience with the fluctuations of family. Several of your
members, two of your members, have experienced the passing of a daughter.
We acknowledge the depth of pain associated with such a loss. We assure you
that she is awake and joyous in her new experience, while torn and saddened
by regret for the lives left behind, the potential life unfinished. We wish
you to know that much, much, was accomplished. She is deeply grateful for
the love she recognized through her struggle.
Two other members of your group have been affected by family fluctuations
stemming from a reconfiguration of loyalties in living arrangements. These
types of fluctuations also provide challenges. And others of you have your
ownless notable, perhaps, but no less realchallenges with the fluctuations
brought about by your participation in family, as a member of family.
Tonight I wish to focus on the great benefit that families can gain as they
experience these painful times together. Sometimes that which is
exceedingly difficult, painful, challenging, can be that which in a
functional family brings individuals closer, allows greater openness, can
bring greater understanding, can deepen relationships with other members of
family. When families are dysfunctional and the individual members are
separated from their source, from stillness, individuals can withdraw into
themselves. When this happens, the family fabric is weakened; the fibers
that hold together begin to dissolve. The parts work loose from one another
as when any individual is unwilling to share the entirety of their
experience with others in the family it is weakened. When family members
use challenges to know one another better the family is strengthened.
Stillness is a key component. As you discussed earlier this evening,
stillness, communion with our Great Parents, seeking our Mother and Father
like little children, provides the safety to share further.
My lesson tonight is to encourage each of you to use the experiences that a
family provides, its many fluctuations and changes in dynamics, to
strengthen your family, to strengthen your relationships with one another,
through openness, through gentleness, through tenderness, through
forgiveness, through graciousness, with gratitude for the opportunities and
lessons that are there in one another.
I have for the time being completed my part. Iruka would also like a few
words. One minute please.
IRUKA: Good evening, my dear friends. I am Iruka. I come to
you tonight with love and joy. I greet you warmly. You all are struggling
on many different levels. We have seemingly talked to you about different
topics, different areas of your lives. We have been talking about family.
We have been talking about stillness and becoming closer to the center of
strength and power, and, yet, these topics come together in the First Source
and Center. They are each an aspect of living in balance, in coordination
with your creators. We are a part of your family. They are our creators
too. We are indeed your older siblings and we wish, as Father wishes, to be
closer to you, to help you with your struggles, share in your joys and
To live as a family lives, there are good parts and there are bad parts and
there are every day mediocre parts. And yet a family goes through each of
these things. You prepare your dinners, your meals, you participate in
them, and then you clean up afterwards and throw out the trash. But it is
all a whole of the eating experience. It is all necessary and it is all in
Step back if you can and see your whole life as being in balance. All the
parts contribute. You cannot get off the planet only participating or
experiencing one part. And so we wish to put our arms around you and
support you when you need support or party with you when you want to
celebrate and talk with you when you have questions.
We came here as volunteers to your planet and we delight in being with you
and helping you understand whatever it is you are struggling with. So, I am
asking that you consider us part of your family. We work very hard to help
you trust us and participate with us as we wish to participate with you.
My love to all of you, and I will take my leave, although, I really dont
want to. Good-bye!
DANIEL: I am Daniel, inviting questions, comments, and further
discussion for either Iruka, Minearsia or I. The floor is yours.
First Student: Daniel, I would like to see if I can sum up some of the
things that I think you are trying to teach us. It seems to me that every
creature that has been created in every universe in the whole expanse of
everything, the seven universes maybe I should say, is our family. But its
up to us to learn to trust and see them as brothers and sisters and to
accept them and get to know them. What does that sound like?
DANIEL: Indeed, my dear, dear friend, I was just simply waiting to
be sure that you were finished before responding enthusiastically. Yes!
Yes! Indeed! Every being on all universes, those created in perfection as
well as those evolving, are brothers and sisters. And you will, in the
fullness of time, come to know and experience this first hand.
In the here and now, we are content with you exploring the concept of family
on the planet Urantia. If fifty percent of Urantians understood that all
people are your brothers and sisters things could be different.
The trouble, and where the healing must first take place, is in the more
immediate family structuresthe nuclear families and the extended families.
Until these families are functioning in a healthy manner, it will be very
difficult to have the planet Urantia functioning in a healthy manner or for
its peoples to understand their cosmic brother and sisterhood.
And so we are examining, at this point in time, those attributes that
strengthen family, that extend family, that deepen family, and those
activities, behaviors, thought patterns that get in the way. Family is
another word for relationship. Indeed, are you in relationship with the
whole and the whole is in relationship with you. We are starting small.
Does this help? Does this answer, excuse me, not help.
First Student: Its both. It does answer, and it does help.
Thank you, Daniel.
DANIEL: Thank you for the opportunity to discourse, discuss, and
converse with you this evening. I enjoy this very much.
Second Student: Daniel, a quick question. When I go to bed at
night and say my prayers, I ask the Thought Adjuster to do work on me.
Should I specify what I need or does he just know?
DANIEL: The answer is two-fold. Of course, the Thought Adjuster
knows, but it is helpful for your own self-knowledge, for your own
self-healing to focus on areas in which you desire growth. The healing and
help can be more expedient this way. Does this help?
Second Student: Perfect. Thank you.
DANIEL: My pleasure. If no one else has a desire to interact, I
wish to take this opportunity to express my tender, heartfelt love for each
of you tonight. I truly admire you, each of you, for your fortitude,
perseverance, enthusiasm, willingness and participation. Life on this
planet is not easy. We know that. Those of our teaching corps who have not
had first-hand experience on a planet such as this are astounded, and we
admire you, and we love you. We are your friends. Please call upon us at
any time, in any manner we can help. We are here; we love you; I love you.
It is truly my great privilege to be your teacher. This experience will
stand out, will be carried dear and close to my heart throughout my
progression. I thank you for this opportunity to love you and to serve you.
I am Daniel your friend, guide and teacher asking you to stand, hold hands
and join in prayer.
Beloved Beloveds, Father, Mother, Grand Father, Trinity, we the Teaching
Corp stand here with our students, and we thank you from the deepest wells
of our beings for this opportunity to demonstrate, participate, reflect, and
be a part of these childrens family. Be with them over the intervening
time period as they work to deepen their relationships, strengthen their
families, and strengthen their connection to you. May they experience Your
peace, Your love, Your promise of good cheer. Thanks be to You. Amen
