PRAYER: Larry: Dear Father, thank you for this gathering. Thank you for all of the blessings that you have bestowed on each one of us. Please be with Stella tonight and help heal her pain and her ailment. Please send your light and your love and your power to her body and heal it. We love you God. Open our hearts and our minds for the information that we receive. In Christ Michael’s name, Amen.
JAREL: TR, George. Good evening. It is I, your Teacher JarEl. It is good to be back again. It is good to see all of you and it is exciting to see your progress and your enthusiasm for the betterment of this world. I welcome those who are here for the first time.
JAREL: It is not an easy thing to tackle the problems that exist in your world. It is just as difficult to contemplate the problems and to attempt to find a solution. Many would just rather avoid the subject altogether. But you honestly look at your world and all of you dream of this world being better and flourishing. And you find ways to bring it to that stage. You find solutions to the problems that exist and you attempt to bring these solutions into action. What also amazes me about all of you is that you have a practicality about you. You are well rounded in this world and you know the limitations to what you can do and how far you can go.
But even with this practicality, you are dreamers. You dream of this world coming to this age of Light and Life, an age that, at this moment, only seems a dream. And it is a beautiful dream. It is a beautiful wish that will one day occur, maybe not in your lifetime, and maybe not in your children’s lifetime. But one day it will arrive and it will envelope this world and peace shall reign throughout Urantia. And this is the type of hope that you bring to this world.
There is something about all of you that is different from many of your fellow Urantians. You do have a distinct air of hopefulness. You are optimistic and positive for the future of this world. Despite all of the drawbacks and downturns you have seen your nation and this world go through, you are very optimistic as to how the future will unfold. And through this sheer optimism you are able to bring change, positive change to your fellow brothers and sisters. There are many ways to bring change. There are many ways to affect this world and each and every one of you finds your own way of doing this.
When you deal with your brothers and sisters try not to tear them apart. Try not to bring them down. Try not to criticize them and ridicule them. Do not belittle them; do not make them small. Respect their level of understanding of their spirituality. They are your brothers and sisters; they are your spiritual counterparts. And when you ridicule them for their beliefs, you not only bring them down, but you show them that you are not tolerant and you are a fraud for you focus on the negative and on the insignificant. Instead of bringing them down, lift them up. You can be encouraging by focusing on their strong points and their best notions, on their best hopes. Give them the hope they need. Give them the strength they desire.
You have all found this strength inside of you. It is right to pass it on. It is right to give it to others, to make others strong as well. You will not be able to change everybody’s mind. You may not be able to introduce this Urantia Book into everybody’s lives, but you are able to effect people in a positive way regardless of what they believe in or what religion they belong to. You will find that in the end none of this will really matter. What will matter will be how you treated others; how you treated your brothers and sisters. And if you despised them for believing in something entirely different, there is a bad mark on you, not on them.
So love one another, love your brothers and sisters. And try to bring each other together, unite one another and bring out the strong points in each and everyone of you. Are there any questions here tonight?
Norman: JarEl, Stella asked tonight if there was anything that you could tell her about her medical problems and how she can correct the illness she’s now going through? If its not too personal…do you have anything to say on that?
JAREL: TR, George. She should trust her doctors. But I will send energy towards her so that she may heal much quicker.
Norman: Thank you.
David: May I ask a question pertaining to a similar subject JarEl?
JAREL: TR, George. Yes, of course.
David: My name is David, I asked that question of you in November concerning self-deception and insincerity and so this question is in regards of being beneficial to Stella also…she is very weak and she has also lost her cat of late, about 4 days ago. This, along with her illness, I think is mentally and physically hurting her heart. So, if I can ask a question like this, it may be possible if you could tell us if he’s alive and well somewhere else so that he might be coming home in the future? I think it would help in her healing.
JAREL: : TR, George. I sympathize with Stella’s loss, but there is no good news I can give her in that respect. She is a strong woman, however, and she has weathered many storms. Stella knows the reality of life in general. She is aware of the deterioration of the human body and how it will become more difficult as the years go by. She has it in her to find the strength. She knows that you all love her and if you were to remind her of that it will aid her in her recovery.
David: Thank you again.
JAREL: You are welcome.
JAREL: And with that, I leave you. Goodnight.
All: Goodnight JarEl
