Prayer, Larry: Dear Father thank you for this gathering. Please open our eyes and our ears to the truths that your teachers bring to us tonight. Thank you for all of the blessings that you have bestowed on each one of us, help us to be good stewards of those blessings. Help us to do your will Father, we love you, in Christ Michael’s name, amen.
JAREL: TR, George. Good evening, it is I, your teacher JarEl. It is good to be back.
JAREL: What I would like to discuss with you tonight is the very idea of being patient, of allowing things in your life to unfold in a slow growth manner. Never is it advisable to rush things or to make things happen as soon as you think of the idea. You must plan for your life and you must allow it to grow in a natural organic way. This has always been true and truth rarely changes. It only changes in perspective and your perspective, as you see it, is very limited. And from what you see around you only so many things may be deducted. But from our perspective and from our experience (having lived much of what you have gone through) we can rightly say to you that all good things do come to those who wait. It is simply a matter of time my friends. God is patient with you so must you be patient with God.
Everything in your life then which is good will eventually come to you. There is no reason why you must despair or act out in such a way where you lose complete control. It is not necessary, there is help on its way. There is love on its way as well. You are never alone in this universe and you certainly are not alone on this planet. You are surrounded by many who love you. But not only the people who love you who you can see but also those who you cannot see; those who surround you everyday of your life yet who you do not know.
God listens to all your prayers and all your wishes and He knows everything that is in your heart even before you say it. There is no reason to believe that everything you pray for is unheard. There is no reason to believe that you are completely abandoned in this world. Those are just foolish thoughts of desperation which don’t amount to anything.
The real truth, my friends, is that your life is unfolding in a natural state. All the challenges that you have in this world are there for a reason. That reason is for you to find out. Then, once you overcome these challenges, you will begin to realize what they were for and the lessons that you learned from these will be lessons that will go with you for all eternity. Then, only then, will you begin to fully appreciate the slowness of time and the quality of a good lesson. What lesson will you learn if you rush through your thinking? What lesson will you derive if all your actions are simply reactions?
Life has a plan for you, God has a plan for you. Simply accept every challenge as it comes and remember that everything that happens to you is meant to make you stronger. God is not a cruel God. He is not out there pitting all these challenges against you for a laugh or a joke. That is not His nature. He does not want you to suffer unjustly. He does not want you to be alone. What God wants from you is that you learn from these challenges – they are always around you no matter what.
So from this knowledge that you acquire you will begin to understand the nature of God and you will begin to understand your own nature as well and the nature of others. When this understanding is relatively complete, you will be closer to God in so many ways. That is really all that He wants from you is that you know Him. But you must first know thyself. It is very difficult for many to learn this knowledge; to find out who they are. There are many who think they know who they are from assumptions of where they come from. But until you know fully where you come from and where you are going, until then, you may not fully know who you are.
So if you make it a quest to find out this knowledge of who, exactly, you are, then perhaps you may fully appreciate the person of God, your Father, the Father of us all, and you may even begin to appreciate all your brothers and sisters that surround you. But in the very act of you searching for this God, for this Father, you immediately begin to recognize all your brothers and sisters. You begin to recognize that we are all connected, for God does connect us all and does not separate us. He is the common ground on which all of us walk. So in your search for God, search for yourself as well and you will find everything you will ever need to know. Are there any questions here tonight?
Mike: I’ve got a couple of questions. I would like to know – when there was only God, before He created everything, did He know evil? And, was he lonely, was that why he created?
JAREL: TR, George. From what we know, before God created everything, evil did not exist with Him, nor does it exist in Him now. Evil is a knowledge that He knows of, but it is not from Him that evil is produced. Evil surrounds those who chose freely, as a potential, which everyone of you has. But it is not part of God, nor does it come from God. So God did not create evil but He certainly has a knowledge of its potential. Otherwise he would not have given freewill so freely to everyone. He knows of their potential, but He also knows that there is a greater potential for them to come to know Him, to embrace Him.
All the evil that you may have done in this world, all the evil that anyone in particular could have done, will be washed away when they reach God. For evil does not exist within the presence of God. Even something as evil as hundreds of thousands of people dying can be turned around and made good. God can make everything new, including a corrupted soul who has lost all hope of life. God can turn everything around in your life and bring you out of despair. But you must leave all the evil behind for if you are to enter the house of God, you must be fully cleansed of all past evil deeds.
As for your second question, was He lonely? When God created this universe, He created it to share Himself. He divided Himself so that He may share it with his Son. Who, in turn, divided Himself, and shared it with others of similar creation. Now you may look at this and examine it and conclude, in your mind, that He was lonely and that he needed a companion. But that is not the nature of God, and that is not one ounce of reasoning of what is actual fact. The reason why God created this universe was out of goodness. He created for the sake of creation. He brought into being the Eternal Son and the Infinite Spirit so that He may bring into actual fact all the creation which you see that surrounds Him. And in turn these creations began to create for themselves and all the Michael Sons began to create their own universes and all the planets of all the universes began to create their own life. And now it is you who creates for yourself and for others.
If anything God has inspired all of you to create for He is the ultimate creator of all. He wants you to learn this creativity that He has taught. He wants you to practice it as well; to learn how to create and to bring into life beautiful things that inspire us all. Too many of your brothers and sisters on this world are focused on destroying, on tearing apart. That is not the example that God has given forth. At this moment God is choosing to reinvent Himself and all of you are part of this, all of you are players in this grand invention of God. So as you can see, my friend, we will always create in this universe, we will always invent and we will always bring forth the good things that inspire us all for that is our true nature and our true calling. Are there any other questions?
Mike: I would like to know. I believe that Judas was probably forgiven for betraying Jesus, but when he committed suicide, I am wondering if that made it more difficult for his spiritual progression or evolution? JarEl: TR, George. The act of committing suicide is always a difficult mark to overcome on a personal level. It is essentially giving up on the challenges that you have. That being said, this by no means deters an individual from moving forward in the grand scheme of spiritual careers.
The individual of Judas Iscariot may very well have been forgiven for everything that he did. For God is merciful and Michael is just as merciful. Michael immediately forgave him for everything that he did. He did not hold one thing against him. So Judas was free to move forward if he so chose to. You will see this as a pattern throughout your life and your spiritual career, that many are forgiven for everything they have done. But it is up to the individual to chose to move forward. It is up to the individual to forgive themselves. In this case it was very difficult for Judas to come to forgive himself. But I will not say anymore regarding this individual. Are there any more questions?
JAREL: Very well. I do hope that all of you continue in your meditations and your stillness. There is so much potential in all of you. So much potential for you to connect, not only with God, but other teachers that are available for you to communicate with. It is simply your choice and your intention. With that I bid you goodnight.
All: Goodnight JarEl and thank you.
