TR: George B.
Prayer, Donna: Dear Father thank you for this evening and this gathering. Thank you for your Presence in each of us. Thank you for the Teachers that you send for us to listen to. We love you very much Father and we seek to do your will; help us to have ears to hear and hearts to follow. In Michael’s name, Amen.
JAREL: TR, George. Good evening. It is I, your Teacher JarEl. (welcome) It is good to be back. It is also very good to see the light of truth inside you. It is pleasant to converse with mortals of Urantia that have the spark of truth within them. You are all scattered over the world and at times it seems there is only a handful of you. Yet you have been given this special knowledge of truth. Your eyes and your ears have been opened to this new realm of possibility; this new advanced knowledge, expanded history.
JAREL: The question now is what are you going to do with this knowledge? How are you going to make sure that it continues? Not only continues, but how are you going to spread it throughout the world? And I know this is not a light task, nor is it easy. It is understandable how difficult all this could be for you, especially when there is established religion to go up against. But this is not something that we want you to push or shove down people’s throats. There are ways to, for lack of a better word, entice them.
Everyone is looking for something. Everyone is looking for some truth in their lives. And little do you know that you have these answers for them. It is just that you are not capable, at the moment, to rightly word this message for them. It is practice that you need. It is something that must be learned through experience and there is no worldwide experience in trying to get the book out to the masses. There has been only the word of mouth, or through what looks like sheer accident.
Now this age that is dawning upon you, to know that you accomplished, through the preparation of the world, people will be more willing to accept this new reality when they have been properly prepared in mind, spirit and soul. Most people already believe what you have to give them. They simply cannot put it in words which they are familiar with, but they know in their hearts. They know deep in their soul what you have come to know.
So, my friends, it is no longer prudent to be cautious about the book. Do not be worried whether or not people will look at you strange. For in the end, the truth that is contained within these pages will help set everyone free. But it is up to you, it is up to all of you to help this world climb out of its own misery. This age is spent and only people like you can revive it, bring it to life and bring new meaning into its existence.
Not knowing the full truth has been so commonplace among humans that people are willing to try just about anything. And because there are authorities who do not give them clear answers, a large majority have been disillusioned. Until now it is commonplace for everyone to do whatever they want. The world cannot continue this way.
The world cannot suffer such large setbacks. That is why all of you have been called to help set things right; to help bring clarity and answers to this world that is suffering from lack of knowledge and order. If you were to but explain to them why the world is the way it is or how you all came to be and where you are all destined to go, then, yes, perhaps, you can bring this world to better order. But people will have to change from within and it is always within that the change happens, never without.
You can go into a country and change the government, change the order of things outside, but the inner order exists and the inner way of doing things will continue and soon enough the way it was before, will be again. It is from within that people should look to change the ways of the world. And until that happens, this world will continue to suffer the way it has for so long.
It is very comforting to see that there are those who do look inward to change themselves. And for those of you who have done this, do not be discouraged by how the world is. Do not be disillusioned by this fact, my friends. For you are truly important for this world. Your soul needs to remain vigorous and your heart clean, for you are truly needed to bring right and truth into this world. A day will come when it will be more apparent that the Most Highs are ruling in the affairs of men. It is man who must change the course of this planet. It is man who must dawn the Age of Light and Life. Until then we can only help to guide and advise, we cannot interfere.
So we watch and we pray and we understand what most of you are going through. We do not judge, nor do we condemn, for we cannot condemn creatures like you, so fragile, so unaware. You all seem so lost at times, so alone, but you are not. Everyone, everything, is connected to you. You just have to be patient and allow this truth to sink into you. All will be revealed through time. Nothing will remain a mystery. Your answers will come and so will your happiness. So be patient my friends. Know that everything takes time and time is boundless. So however long you may wait, however time goes by, you will eventually receive your answers. But most of the answers that you look for can be answered now.
One of the major questions that people ask is if God exists? And God does exist. He exists in all of us, He exists in you and me and everyone in this room and everyone in this universe. He is all around us and He is in us. He is in the horizon of time and in the light of presence. He is in our yesterdays and in our tomorrows. There are unlimited ways to describe the meaning of God. But I bet that you have a thousand ways of your own to do that. So it is answers like these that at times you do not even need to question, because you already know in your own hearts. Nonetheless, we are here to help you, to guide you, to provide support most of all. But the real decisions and the real work that must be done on this world has to come through you, no one else. Are there any questions here tonight?
Mike: I’d like to know, what are some of the adventures that we can look forward to having after this life? I know there are a lot of adventures in life now, but what are some of the adventures that we will be having later? It seems like there is a lot of teaching going on after we go through this life into the next stage, and learning. but what are the adventures you go on?
JAREL: TR, George. It all depends on what your definition of an adventure is? You will have different types of adventures to look forward to, different experiences, some that deal with strictly visual experiences; when you see strange new worlds and experience fantastic atmospheres, or adventures where you meet new and interesting creatures that have vastly different experiences than yours, or the ultimate adventure which is understanding who God is, looking within yourself, finding that truth, that light that exists inside you and to see it grow and mature to the point where you are truly connected and alive and full of light and clarity. That is the ultimate adventure that you have to look forward to. But you will not experience that until you reach of age and have matured in spirit.
The adventure that is just around the corner for you is your Morontia adventure where you will experience your new Morontia body and revisit many of your relatives, some you do not even know about, some that are hundreds of years your senior. And that can be an adventure in itself. Then there is also the adventure of understanding history, reading up on it, experiencing it through other visual forms of communication. There are numerous adventures my friend, there are numerous ways of experiencing all of life. There is the adventure of making new friends, of making lifelong friends, friends that will last an eternity. And then your friends that you have here on earth as well, there will be that adventure of discovering new things with them.
Mike: When you talk about history, do you mean – things will be revealed – we will be able to see things that happened here on this planet from years back? Like what happened to John F. Kennedy, or all that kind of stuff will be known?
JAREL: : TR, George. Yes, of course. All this will be revealed to you. The large database that exists that contains all the history of your world will be available to you. In fact, there are many that leave your planet and become consumed with the study of this planet and they spend countless, countless hours, going over all of its history. I do not doubt that you will spend many hours as well. It is always interesting to understand one’s own history and how things came about.
Mike: I like music and Elvis Presley was always a favorite singer of mine and I wonder, people like him that sing that good on earth, how good are the singers on the advanced worlds, how much better?
JAREL: : TR, George. I will put it in these words so that you can understand. The singers become inspired by glimpses of what is Morontial and spiritual. So imagine, when they arrive on the other side, when they actually experience the source of their inspiration, imagine how much better they can be once they have seen what they can become. It is only for your own benefit and gratitude that this music will be performed and you will truly be lifted up in a spiritual ecstasy when you experience such music. So that’s why a performer like Elvis Presley, who is one of your favorites, imagine how much more he has improved since his death?
Mike: Will everybody be able to sing well? Or is that still different skilled people, I mean if you desire to be a good singer, does everybody have the capability on that side?
JAREL: : TR, George. You can pursue that avenue of knowledge, yes. There is nothing that is blocked from you. Everything that you ever wanted to do on this world can be accomplished on the next. So if you ever wanted to sing, yes, you can practice your voice and there are able teachers and patient ones as well to help you achieve such heights of glory. Eventually you will mature your voice among other things and you will do everything much better. As time and time progresses you will become more adorable to everyone else’s eyes and ears.
Mike: It’s interesting.
JAREL: : TR, George. You have much to look forward to. Life, after this planet, is very, very interesting. And, yes, most of you will be shocked to begin with. But once you get over your initial shock, you will find it quite exciting and you will actually look forward to each day for the rest of your life.
Mike: Also, if I can change the world only by (what I think you said was) by changing myself to be better? So, the more people that do that, it is kind of like a domino effect, is that basically what you are saying?
JAREL: : TR, George. Yes, that is the basis on which I make my statement. It is within you that change must begin. But if you believe that you cannot change the world, then you cannot. It is a matter of belief. But if you find the strength inside you and if you begin with that change, you can change the world and you can make it better. You are only bound by whatever obstacles you put in front of you. There are a million possibilities to your own existence and each possibility contains within itself an entirely different version of your life. And only God can see all the possibilities that could exist within you.
Only He is able to make them real. But as far as your own experience, whatever you decide is what’s real for you. If you can get inside the mind of God and see these other possibilities that exist for your own life, then you can imagine what He sees for you and what you are capable of. And when you see yourself doing these extraordinary things, then perhaps you can have the courage to do them, to decide. It is whatever you imagine yourself doing that becomes reality. And you build your reality. You make your destiny. You create your world.
Mike: Well, what if you don’t see it but you pray for guidance? Where does that guidance come from? I mean, I pray for guidance. So I feel like if I am praying for guidance that I should be getting some guidance. Especially when I’m not sure which way I want to go..I want to be guided. I pray for God’s guidance every night. So ?
JAREL: : TR, George. He guides you. He listens to you. He is there for you. But at times he wants you to move forward on your own. He wants you to make that decision, take that step. It is only from a wise parent’s point of view that the parent holds back and allows his child to fall, to get up on his own. And if God does that for you my friend, it is so that you may get up and begin journeying on that path which you chose. God does not chose for you. And when you have decided, you will get all the support that you need, all the prayers that you have prayed will be answered. But at times it is up to the individual to make that decision, to take that step.
You are like a spinning compass and you continue spinning because you are in a place where nothing is right and there is no direction. It is only when you move out of that place that you find true north, a true direction. And then you find your way. But when you are lost, when you are in a place where all magnetism is awry, then you must find a way out of there. Many times when people are lost and they ask for guidance, they ask for the wrong reasons. They should be asking how to get un-lost. Once they find their way out of whatever situation they may be in, then they can start on their real journey inward towards God. But many times you must simply get out of the situation that you are in that has you lost to begin with. Does this make sense to you?
Mike: Ah, yes and no. I mean, I’ve made a lot of mistakes in my life. That’s why I always pray like “Lord, you’ve seen what I do on my own, I need the guidance.” I don’t know if I want to be left on my own to make my own decisions, sometimes. They haven’t proved to be too good.
JAREL: : TR, George. You give yourself very little credit. And God loves you, no matter what. You are one of His children and He hasn’t let you down ever. Whatever decisions you may have made in your life are in your past and you have your whole future to look forward to. And, yes, you may continue to make mistakes, but that is part of life, that is part of living. The experience which you have gathered from all of these mistakes is more valuable than if you had made none to begin with. So do not doubt your life or the path that you have taken, for the path is your own; it is your own experience that you have under your belt. And this experience is what you will carry with you for the rest of your life, be it good or bad.
The important thing now for you to realize, is that you do have an everlasting life, a lifetime to make many decisions, some good, some bad. But regardless of what decision you make, you will gather some experience from them and you will base your life on that. You will continue to grow and to mature. Then perhaps later on in your life you will make less mistakes. But all along you will be guided. You are just not overtly aware of it, but you are guided; not everyone receives the ‘burning bush’, so do not expect that. In your own way you have the presence of God inside you. In your own way you have help.
Do not doubt that connection. Do not believe that it does not exist. God is real in your life and in the lives of all of you. He is there, always, and the choices that you make, be they good or bad, have always brought you closer to Him. All things do work for the glory of God. And your life, my friend, in its completion, in the fullness of time, will symbolize the trophy of God our Father. Are there any more questions here tonight?
Mike: As you build up the goodness of God in yourself, I don’t know if this is something that is just in my mind, but I have always wanted, I pray that the goodness of God would flow through me, so that when I am around other people that the goodness of God, not to be egoistic or for some kind of people to think ‘Oh, he’s religious’ or something like that, but that the goodness of God, as you believe in God, and you try to be a good person, that that energy flows through you and can be picked up by other people that you are around. That’s what I want to do. And is that a possibility?
JAREL: : TR, George. Yes, that is a possibility, but you have to take responsibility in your own life to work on yourself. You can get to that point. You can achieve that sort of charisma around others. But it is once you have worked on the way you treat others, the way you treat yourself and how you feel about yourself, that is when you reach that stage. You have to love yourself first. Stop doubting yourself. Stop believing that you are not worthy. You are a child of God, you are a brother and a brother to the rest of the world.
You will find that stage in your life, but you have to work towards it. It is not just going to happen overnight. And it is not just going to happen because you believe in God. Even if you love God, you still have to find a way to love yourself. I know what you want and I know I am not going to make you feel better by telling you this, but it is the only way you may come to understand. It is not something that is far away from you that you cannot have, you can have it, but you have to fight for it; you have to work for it. It is a reality that you must build. It is good that you want it because it shows that you are thinking in Morontia terms. It is just difficult to have because you must think in Morontial terms. So do the work inside; work on yourself. And you will find a path to this reality.
Mike: Well, I’ll still pray for guidance. I’m still praying for guidance.
JAREL: : TR, George. As do we all. With that I leave you. Goodnight.
Mike: Thank you.
All: Goodnight JarEl.
