TR: George B.
Prayer: Larry: Dear Father, thank you for this gathering and open our hearts and our minds to the truths that are spoken here tonight and thank you for all the blessings that you have bestowed on each one of us. We love you Father, in Michael’s name, Amen.
JAREL: TR, George: Good evening. It is I, your teacher JarEl.
JAREL: : TR, George: It is good to be back with you and welcome to those who have been away for awhile.
JAREL: There is an observation I would like to make, or more of a reminder, of something I told you long ago. And this question has been brought up, and the question was “Is this world getting better or worse?” My answer was that the world is getting better and everyday, day by day, we see it changing. We see it growing towards the light and we see all these different measures (of which you are unaware). And by these measures we calculate the progression rate and we estimate a time when your world will arrive at a culminating point. It will begin to restore and establish much that was lost and much more that needs to be gained.
Your world will enter Light and Life. There is no doubt on our end that this will happen. There may be doubt on your end if it’s even happening at all. But I assure you that your world is progressing. And, yes, of course, Light and Life will not arrive tomorrow, nor ten years from now.
But you are the seeds that begin it, you are the forefront of this new age and we see these changes happening because of people like you. In your minds and in your hearts you see the truth and you’ve gone out into the world to spread this beautiful truth of brotherly love and our connection with God. And this idea has been spread all over the world and people recognize it, people feel it and people believe it because it is true. It is true that we are all connected and it is true that God loves us and that God is our Father. That is truth, that is truth for all ages; that is truth for this age, the age that’s past and the age that is about to come.
No matter how many times people tell you that there are enemies who are against you, do not believe them. For you know the truth that is within your heart. The enemy usually is within instead of external. Many times it is simply a matter of misunderstanding, of not knowing your enemy. Sure, there are differences that you may have and many of these differences have gone too far and have cost too much and it is time that you begin to understand each other, to build bridges, to build the connections. It is no longer acceptable to simply close yourselves off from one another and build walls or separate from each other in fear. It is no longer acceptable to wage war out of nothingness.
You are all very capable of understanding one another and of growing together as friends, of learning how to see through another person’s eyes or how to walk in another person’s shoes. You are all very capable of learning and maturing and having your eyes opened. If anyone tells you otherwise, then it is sad when you believe them. It is sad that you follow those (for lack of a better word) lies. For anytime anyone tells you that you cannot understand or you cannot see, then it is a lie. You can see and you can understand. And if there are some things that you cannot understand, it is simply something that you are not ready to understand yet, it is beyond you. But it will eventually come to you and you will eventually learn these things.
So it is patience and understanding that you must have. And understand this, you all have been very patient and hopeful and your world is changing and your world will change, but you must be more patient and more understanding. Your world will not change overnight. It takes hard work, dedication and perseverance. It takes good people like you with good hearts and good souls to see towards the future and imagine a better day, a better life. These things are possible and they can be imagined. But, most importantly, they can be realized.
To manifest something out of your mind has already been established, it is not something new and it is not something foreign. To manifest your thoughts and your ideals already has precedence. So follow your hearts and imagine a better world and make it so, make it come to life. Manifest your dreams and your highest ideals for the world of God, His speak, is upon you and He is all around you at this very moment and if you tap into his energy, you can manifest that world into this reality. You can bring this kingdom of God to this planet. Are there any questions here tonight?
Rob: Is this age of Light and Life generations off or centuries off?
JAREL: : TR, George: It is both, actually for centuries are also measured in generations. It is not one or two generations, if that is your question. It’s perhaps twenty generations or thirty.
Rob: Thank you
JAREL: : TR, George: Regardless of this matter, that the age of Light and Life will one day come to this planet, it shouldn’t concern you as to what is going on now. For that is some far away age that has nothing to do with what you are doing here and now. The most important thing that you could do is plant the seeds that create the energy that build the momentum for this age to appear. If anything, the age of Light and Life will look back and thank you for that momentum, that push, that energy that you created.
For the age of Light and Life could not exist without you, without your initial energy, that is what the age of Light and Life is all about; the cumulative energy of the entire world coming together as one. But that age is not possible unless it is begun here and now, in your hearts and in your minds. You are the energy from which the age of Light and Life draws its force. You are the seeds that make it possible.
Donna: JarEl, I just want to thank you for this very positive and hopeful message that you’ve brought to us tonight. Because I think many times we need to hear things that are more uplifting and positive and hopeful.
And, another comment, I know that someplace in the Urantia Book, when it is talking about seeds and plants and the early ages of our planet, there was a time when the flowers all of a sudden started to bloom. I forget what page that’s on, but, there weren’t flowers before and then all of a sudden there were all these flowering plants – the time was just right. So I like to use that as sort of an analogy, I believe, for when there are enough seeds planted and enough preparation done, then I do believe that humanity will also bloom into that age of Light and Life. And, for myself, I am happy to be a seed. (laughing) Okay, thank you.
(Editor’s note – The above reference is in Paper 60, Part 3, Pg. 691 of the Urantia Book.)
Lucille: Very good.
JAREL: : TR, George: That is a beautiful analogy and very astute of you to recognize this pattern that exists in life.
Group: Thank you.
JAREL: Thank you. Are there any other questions? Just to reiterate what you said. Humanity will come to a crescendo and will bloom all at once and you will see patterns like this emerging all over the world. You will see huge leaps in evolution and all at once things will begin to change for the time will be right and ripe for this new age to arrive. And with that I leave you, goodnight.
All: Goodnight JarEl.
