Topic: Stay Away From Fear-JarEl’s Name
Group: Arcadia TeaM
TR: George B.
Prayer: Donna: Dear Father thank you for this evening, for this gathering here. We are here to hear the teachings of JarEl and we are happy that you have given us teachers to sort of steer us and guide us more explicitly in these times. Please help us to hear the words and the teachings that you want us to hear and help us to grow spiritually and with our ability to commune with our own indwelling fragments of you Lord. In Christ Michael’s name. Amen
JAREL: TR, George: Good evening. It is I, your teacher JarEl. It is good to be among you once again.
JAREL: As you have heard me speak of this to you, I will continue to reiterate this message, for I feel that it is very important that you fully understand its complete meaning. This message is that you stay away from fear; you leave fear out of your lives. You leave fear out of your hearts and your minds. Fear only poisons your decisions, fear only stalls your progress. Fear blocks you from moving forward and from seeing what is down the road. Fear is the evil in which an otherwise good decision would have been made. Fear is what angers you. Fear is what makes you hate. Too many people fall into this trap of fearing the unknown, of fearing what is beyond them as strange.
Be faithful in your hearts. Be faithful and trust that things will get better, that God is with you and God will protect you. Trust that everything in your life will work out one way or another. If you can look back into your life and see the moments in your life that have been blocked by either being fearful or distrusting, you can see the damage that such an attitude takes. Understanding this will allow you to make those decisions that are positive and beneficial to your life. Disallowing fear gives you that potential of understanding God and of understanding yourself in the connection with God and of understanding others who you do not know. And, frankly, there is too much fear going around – there is too much of this.
Be ambassadors of the life that God gives you. Be representatives of the stable and everlasting universal government in the universe. Life is stabilized by harmony and unity. We have shed our lives from all fears and all worry. We have come to trust one another. Our economy is based on love and understanding. We see our lives as being stable. We see our careers as progressing. We are fully invested in our futures and the future of this universe. We have no doubt that things will improve, but we see first hand that things are already improving, that the universe is growing.
There are worlds that are coming into light and life and new worlds are being born. We are witness to all of these marvelous things that go on in this universe. And yet, you are limited in scope and ambition by what you have here on this planet and it is understandable that you do not know enough to bring yourselves to trust fully. But I do assure you that these things do exist and in spite of what goes on in this planet of which you pass through in relatively short time, the universe is safe, friendly and stable.
So do not allow these temporary fears to overtake your lives and manage your decisions or to drive you into dark places from which you feel you must go. All these things are illusions that have been cast against you, illusions to manipulate your lives, your decisions. Fear is just an illusion itself. Fear is an illusion of a great curtain that surrounds you. But in reality it is only paper thin; it is something that so easily could be broken through. But because of this overwhelming fear, you imagine that it is a lot thicker, a lot stronger. But in reality it is weak, it is trivial, it is petty. And it should not be given any strength for it deserves none.
Instead, find that strength inside of you to overcome these fears, to combat these illusions and to triumph over the darkness. You are all capable of doing this. You all have that spirit inside you. You all have that connection with God. Draw on that energy and witness for yourselves what is fearless, what is true. That First Source and Center will give you the clarity and the purity to understand that none of this other heavy stuff matters. And you know the truth when you’ve felt the True Source and Center.
So let go of these fears and let go of the biggest fear many of you have had at one point in your life or another, and that fear is the fear that God does not love you. Of course He love you; of course He embraces you as a son or a daughter. There is nothing to prove to God. He loves you regardless. There is nothing to make up. He loves you from the very beginning. There is nothing to ask for forgiveness, for He has already forgiven you. God loves you unconditionally; that bond is there forever.
And it is up to you to understand and realize this bond that exists even now. And when you put all of your faith on this bond and draw your strength from it, you will no longer fear, for then fear will only signify a trivial emotion that has roots in your animal nature. Bring yourselves out of this fearful life my friends and you will see the light of God and the path is easier towards perfection, towards love, towards everlasting truth. Are there any questions here tonight?
Larry: JarEl I have a question from a David Butterfield in Costa Rica. He asks “How is it possible to reconcile our textbook’s emphasis on the sovereignty of the human will with the reality that we have no recollection or knowledge of not having made a choice to come here?”
JAREL: TR, George: The simple truth is that you were never given a choice to come here. You did not exist prior to arriving on this planet. You were born here, you matured here and you will die here. What has happened is that you were conceived by your parents and a personality was created for you. At the age of moral maturity or moral choice, you were given a Thought Adjuster who has been with you ever since. And with your Thought Adjuster in combination with your personality, you have built your soul and thus a spiritual human was born.
You have had many births here on this planet and all other births are unconscious; in other words, you weren’t aware when your personality was being formulated and neither were you aware of where your Thought Adjuster came from. But to reconcile these two, our prior choice and human freewill, is very easy because they are separate and one does not exist. There is no prior choice.
Your freewill here has sovereignty but it also has consequences when you exercise your freewill. Thus, you are only free as long as you allow others to be free. You cannot dominate someone else’s freewill. You cannot impose your own freewill on others. When you run rampant with your freewill you make others your slave; you unbalance what otherwise should be balanced. Hopefully, none of you abuse your freewill. Hopefully you all learn to cooperate with one another and understand that sometimes you must give up your own freewill for the greater good. I hope this answers your question.
Larry: Yes, thank you.
Joe: I have something I’d like to share. For a long time it was always my expectation that if the Thought Adjuster is God, it should be able to prove it. That didn’t seem an unreasonable request. Now, granted, it is not my job to tell the Adjuster how to do its (job). Nor is it my job to make demands of it. I always believed that God could perform miracles so, naturally, I figured – well, why can’t the Adjuster?
Then something funny happened to me today when I was meditating. I realized, as I was laying down in my bed, that I was a fool all along. The miracle has always been in front of my eyes – it is every moment of life and I don’t need anybody to prove that to me. The more I have connected with my Adjuster the more I have found that It has some information that has helped me understand what you mean by faith.
There is something very profound and interesting as you begin to mature and develop and as you’re able to connect and seek out the kinds of questions or answers that you may desire. But I just think it is so funny how people are always asking for proof and you don’t need a miracle, life’s a miracle. I just wanted to share what I thought was a simple but very interesting insight. Then I have something else to share after your comments.
JAREL: TR, George: Thank you for sharing. I do not consider you as a fool. I do appreciate your insight. I do appreciate your maturity. I do appreciate your of appreciation for life in general. And, yes, life is a miracle. There are so many miracles that surround you but one must be open and alert to see these things that exist around you.
As you mature, as you become in tune with your Thought Adjuster, and with God, you will begin to see more and more. Things will be clearer to you, some things may even come into focus all of a sudden, things that you were not even aware of. And this focus is just outside your field of vision. And that’s the way God is at times, He’s just outside your field of vision, He’s just on the periphery, just there barely noticeable, but nonetheless, there. And when you gain that vision, gain that knowledge, your focus on these far away things becomes clearer and clearer and you begin to understand more and more as time goes by. But I would not consider you as a fool now, nor even when you were questioning these things. You were simply curious.
Joe: Thank you. I tend to be my own worst critic. Um, it’s funny, my old friend Cy, who I had communication with when I was a young teenager, I remember, when I first met him I said, well “If you claim to be a psychic, can you do something that is psychic?”
His first response was “I don’t do parlor tricks.” Now, he did prove to me that he was psychic, later on – quite a few times actually. But, I think the same probably could be said of the Adjuster, it’s not your slave and certainly you’re not its slave either. But it is interesting nonetheless.
JAREL: TR, George: Miracles are rarely the cause of a person’s faith, even in the times of Jesus – he performed miracles. And those that believed when they saw the miracle were later swayed the other way. Miracles are never a guarantee of a person’s soul and that is why they are rarely used.
Joe: I think you’ve made a really good point, I think that even if someone can walk on water that doesn’t necessarily make them God. I think faith sometimes is really undervalued. But that’s a good point.
Joe: In my own relationship with Cy, it is interesting, he would always look into the future and the past, I think, because he’d like to manipulate outcomes. He’s a leader, he has obligations and he has an agenda. At least that’s what I believe.
But, what I think is so funny (and this is something I learned from connecting with my own Adjuster) is that there is never any need to look at the past or the future.
I mean, there are circumstances where it might be necessary. But, for the most part, I think, real power comes from an inner confidence in knowing that when you have faith in God you don’t need to rely on looking into the past or the future. You can create them; you can create the past, you can create the future and you don’t need anybody else to tell you what it is. You don’t need to be reliant on looking at it – you always move forward.
And, I guess I found it interesting that for a while I think he (Cy) liked to play around with time a lot. But I think real power comes from creating, not just being reliant on how other people create for you. You can create for yourself. You don’t need anybody controlling you. I think that’s important for all of us, we don’t need anybody to tell us what our future is going to be, we can create that for ourselves with a good enough inner confidence and faith in ourselves to move forward with our own conviction in whatever it is that we try to do. I wanted to share that.
JAREL: TR, George: Thank you for sharing. Are there any other questions here tonight?
Joe: Who made you? I’ve always wondered. Don’t take this the wrong way, but, I always thought your name was kind of amusing. You sound kind of like a Star Wars character. Does it have any significance, a special meaning? I am just kind of curious. How did you receive your name?
JAREL: TR, George: I received my name after I had died and after I had gone through the first three Morontia worlds. The meaning is for me to know. You will also be given a name and that meaning you will also know and you may guard it jealously or you may share it – that is up to you. The name that I have signifies a great deal and the meaning behind it is indicative of what my life is and what my life was and what my life is to be. There is so much in my name that it would be difficult for me to explain it, but I can assure you that you all have your own spiritual name that you will receive. The names that are given to you here on this planet will just be a memory of what you were. But your true names will be with you for all eternity, and the meanings behind them will be very significant to your own lives.
Group: Thank you
JAREL: You are welcome. And if there are no more questions, I will bid you all goodnight.
All: Goodnight JarEl.
