Teacher: Charles, Jonathan
T/R: Mark Rogers
Prayer: [Mary Rogers] Let's take a few deep breaths together and get into the space, reconnect with our Center as individuals and as a group. Pause for a moment and reflect on the nature of community and connectedness. Into this reflection of community and connectedness draw in also the reality of your own creativity, the potential for magic. Father we ask that you continue opening our hearts, our minds, our spirit, the reality of your love and magic of your light.
Charles: I would accept your unspoken invitation to join you, I am Charles and I would try to offer a few words of comfort in these days which seem to carry with them so much weight and so much pressure. I would invite you to consider stepping back or more accurately perhaps, stepping up and considering rather than to visualize and work with your energy to see a particular way forward, a particular platform or candidate or vote as being all illustrative. What if you were to vote for simply one platform, the platform of spirit and of God above, the platform of goodness, truth and beauty and vote for that. In this way your vote cast will certainly not be wasted and trust with this vote that those aspects that you are voting for will be brought forward in the process and that it does not rest upon the shoulder of a party or and individual or even a generation. This is a long ongoing process in which you are simply participating at this juncture in time and space.
But it is easy to get mired if you will, in the muck of details and possibilities and predictions and forecasts and otherwise submitted versions of perceived potentials. They are merely that, they are merely the visions of those individuals offering them. You are welcome to have your own visions and entertain your own platform for consideration. And by aiming high, by shooting above the details of the fray for the ideals that you stand for, then you may begin to see that everything that happens is a step towards that end and you will begin to see those things that you vote for in your vision materialize.
Try not to feel overburdened in this season of burdens. Try not to be overwhelmed by all the sheer number of facts in consideration. Maintain that your vote will be for whatever will be the highest and best good for all of humanity and to the degree you make your decisions based upon those principles, you have acted in accordance with your faith. Then simply allow and trust that the process at hand will unfold in the direction of truth, beauty and goodness. Then relax, you have played your part, you have cast your vote, you have prayed your part and in this way you have cast your vote. Then, let go of the cumbersome weightiness of all that is being thrust towards you and upon you. It only becomes a burden to you in so far as you accept it as such and carry it as such.
This too shall pass, there will be other turning points as you see them, many many laid out before you and in each one there will be the same opportunity for you to vote your conscience, vote your spiritual awareness. Even if you are unclear as to which of the potentials before you may bring about this desired condition and state, still you will vote for the state and the condition of Light and Life, of love, peace and grace. Whatever the vote is, that's what you will be voting for. Whether it is even in your daily life, what you will be doing with your time and your choices, these are all your votes, your selections, your choices.
So be of good cheer my dear ones, even though there is an extraordinary effort at this time to have you feel fearful and burdened, resist this temptation knowing that if you do not choose it, it is not manifesting for you. Always choose those things that you desire, resist making choices indicating those things you are fearful of. To the degree it is possible, do not allow fear to be a motivating force, rather the forces you would choose, the forces of love, mercy and peace and this is true no matter what season it is, no matter what day it is, no matter what hour it is.
I stand in gratitude for all of your choices that bring you to this place at this time and allow for my participation. Thank you for indulging me.
Jonathan: I would also indulge in a few words today, I am Jonathan and I am reminded by todays conversation about the imagery supplied by the Master, the imagery of the vine and how we are all attached to the vine and being supplied by the vine and nurtured by the vine and that the vine gets pruned with intention and trained to flow in a certain pattern that is preferred and then the vine takes the shape of the gardeners desires. Yet, it is more than happy to comply with the desires of the gardener because pruning and training are the way the vine is made strong. Those aspects of the vine which are undesired may wither and fall away while those aspects of the vine which are chosen and fostered grow strong.
This imagery is ever serviceable in this notion of what we are doing in this life. Even as individuals we are growing our vine, we are pruning and trimming with each season to define the direction the vine will grow and what will be nourished and what will be trimmed. In this way, each year the vine has more potential and grows stronger and better and so it is with great joy that I report to you that the vines we have planted on Urantia are the same vines I am still tending and that we look forward to growing into the future. It is this same beginning point which is nourished and fostered and enhanced and which continues on in this analogy of growing into ourselves.
I always enjoy being able to share imagery relating to working with gardening and the earth for I have an intense fondness for this part of my history. Thank you for letting me share this morning, I wish you all good day.
