Thursday night July 2, 1998 Small group in Sonny Schneider’s room
MINEARISA: (Nancy TR): Greetings, I am Minearisa Melchizedek, known to many of you. As I serve in an administrative role with what you know of as the northwest region and further, I have been associated with this TR in the past, and it is my pleasure at this time to take this opportunity to clear the rust and debris of disuse from PamElla’s circuitry.
MINEARISA: It is my honor to experience the love you have for one another in your growing recognition of the reality of God’s family, that is made clear to you in the eyes and arms of one another in this fellowship. You overwhelm us far more than we overwhelm you. This I realize is difficult for you to fathom because from time to time you are quite in awe of this entire communication experience and the implications of the greater outreach. We are in awe of the soul comprehension that you display with such little material evidence of the reality of God’s love made manifest in the greater material love.
Yet, in one another’s eyes do you see God reflected, and in your willingness to look and experience you know God. It is this willingness to share yourselves and to be open to one another that we find so awe inspiring. You are our most beloved colleagues, friends, younger siblings, and we love you dearly.
I will be speaking with you again before your time together has come to a close, but for now I will give you my blessings and my love so that others may address you. Thank you for making this opportunity to be together in this way and to allow our presentations. Farewell.
SOLONIA: (Daniel): Greetings, my dear friends, this is Solonia. This gathering is a great potential for the healing that each and every one of you seeks. All of you are on a path, and it is a path to do the will of our dear Father. All of you are wonderful ministers. You love one another so openly and genuinely. Each of you here this weekend is also facing a certain inner struggle. You may not even be able to identify, but somehow you feel a lacking in your life and its purpose right now. As I spoke with the Coeur d’Alene group last Sunday, you each have the opportunity to minister our Father’s love with one another, and each of you in turn needs to accept that love from each other also. This will be a tremendous weekend. The love being generated here already is a sight to behold.
There are others yet who would speak and I will give the floor to them. I love you each. Minister and be ministered to in the love of our universal Father. Thank you, my friends.
ELYON: (Jonathan): Greetings to you, also. We rejoice in our reunion, for it is ever rewarding to assess prior struggles and to perceive attainment, to recognize new vistas for further growth. These enclaves are beneficial in their witness to each other. It is always a demonstration of your faith to make your journey. I am Elyon, and I greet you; I give you my welcome and extend my gratitude for our continued cooperative ministry. I will speak again later.
DANIEL: (Nancy): Greetings, my friends, I am Daniel, your teacher, friend, companion, guide, and colleague, among other relationships. It is truly my pleasure to attend this great gathering of hearts, minds, in the search for soul attainments and the realization thereof.
I wish to make a brief comment on relationship at this time, particularly in light of the previous discussion concerning my dearest friend and charge, Rutha, who, as has been said, graduated from this plane. She is indeed doing great things and is tuned in intent with you at this time. The relationship that you had with Rutha in the past continues. It is never broken; it is never lost. Relationships change and alter in form with varying duration, but the basis of relationship is love, and that is eternal, never to be lost or diminished in any way. That is all.
EVANSON: (Jonathan): I also greet you this evening. I am Evanson. I have a short comment. I witness about you nearly full attendance of all your guardians, including their assistants. It is remarkable to witness their interest. This event of yours is one that is a result of a function you have each adopted in our lives that we wish all mortal beings would adopt, and that is the ever-continual, fine tuning of your ability to look ahead of you and to make decisions that retain that threefold perspective. When you assemble as you do, both in your physical presence and in your social exchanges you also establish conditions for ministry from many whom you cannot see.
By assembling as you do, these attendants can effect transformations in your potentials, can rework what it is that you can possibly express. By doing so, the future work, the future struggles on their parts are greatly alleviated.
You come to refresh yourselves spiritually, but I assure you, you leave amply prepared to be nourishing to others, encouraging, and supporting. I leave you with just this thought, that these are remarkable beings in your presence. I hope that you are as grateful for them as we are.
MICHAEL: (David): Good evening, my children. I am Michael, your creator father. I am Jesus, your human brother. I love you more than you can imagine. I am part of you. I am with you as you gather here in my name. It’s not that words fail me; it’s that your efforts, your giving of yourselves is very, very dear to my heart; it is dear to behold. The world struggles; so many struggle with faith, faith in the reality of who they are. They just can’t seem to believe it. This is ever the message. You know why you are here; you know why you have been called, because you know this reality; you have felt this reality.
You are living this reality; you are growing in spirit. Your soul grows. You are living in the presence of the Spirit of Truth. By your faith you grow. The Father’s presence in each of you seeks your personality, seeks your unique venture, journey. This is the message that all men will know their Father. The Father is present in all men. It is up to the faith of the man to seek that communication, to know that vision as real.
I thank you for your ear; I thank you for your heartfelt faith that brings you here. I need not tell you of my love; you know my love. My love is in you. I am with you always.
NW Teaching Mission Conference Bogus Basin, Idaho, July 2-5, 1998 Large Session Friday July 3, 1998
MACHIVENTA: (Bill K.): I am Machiventa, your prince, of course in attendance at this wondrous event. My staff has concluded that our progress with this immensely important correcting time continues to exceed our expectations. We know that you mortals who have joined us as apostles of Christ Michael, at times, are overwhelmed with inadequacies, feelings of unworthiness and guilt, that you should be called to this great mission. But we are trying our best to help you understand how distorted this poor self esteem is, and how contrary to universe reality.
MACHIVENTA: You are becoming aware of the true devastation which was wrought upon this system of Satania by the Lucifer rebellion, and you are beginning to long with great nostalgia for your defaulted Adamic administration. We are here, in part, to fill that gap and to produce a new society on this strife torn planet. My unspeakable gratitude to Christ Michael, our Creator Son, and to Nebadonia, for the honor that is mine to represent this planet as acting planetary Prince. I, Machiventa, have had much to do with your planetary history that is not revealed to you in the Urantia Book, except where it is hinted that I was in contact with many individuals between the bestowal of Christ Michael and the giving of the fifth epochal revelation. Therefore it is with great satisfaction that I act in the place of Michael on this planet.
Do not let your doubts that come over you at times dissuade you from what your soul truly knows, for your mind’s knowledge is subject to emotional pressure, but that knowledge that is put into the morontial structure of your soul is sure; it is certain; and it will support you when the waves of doubt threaten to engulf you.
It is true that it’s difficult for mortals to be industrious. It is naturally against your animal natures to endeavor to think clearly, to decide decisively, and to act with conviction. Therefore do I pat you all on the back, and say that we are most pleased with your responses, my dear friends, to the spiritual pressure which has been pouring down upon this planet. I have enjoyed the interactions I have observed from you all, as I always do. It is to us a great event when you who are conscious of your universe status come together at these conferences. I now have concluded my remarks, and I will step aside so that another may address you.
MANTUTIA: (Sheila B.): Greetings. I am your brother, Mantutia, and I would speak of awakening. With each level of actualized growth there results an awakening. At this time when you have stepped upon a new plane of awareness, you may very well expect a feeling of unfamiliarity because of new heights of awareness and acceptance. What you see before you may very well not be acceptable of your way of life. And this new way of knowing, of seeing, because you are at the beginning once again, you may experience doubts. You may experience a feeling of not knowing one’s self or understanding those around you..
You cannot go from one floor of a building and expect the same things. You must explore the new floor you are approaching. It is in this process of exploration that you come to know your new self, your new understanding, your new acceptance of what is real. This is the awakening.
Fear not, for this is an absolute natural process and a celebration. This is where being in the moment is helpful, recognizing things as if for the first time; listening as if for the first time. This is where awareness can be exercised in any fashion. This is where judgment is not needed.
The moment that you find yourself in confusion, it is simply because you are trying to recognize the familiarities from the floor below and not that of the new level, the new awakening, that you are now in. You are very aware that your Father is with you in all areas of this new awakening. This is where you rest. This where you go to ground, to stable. You are all aware that your guides are right along side.
It is important to know that this journey, the process of this journey, is that which is most important, not the goal, not how quickly it can happen, not how you will be when it’s all over. It is every step, every waking and sleeping moment, knowing that you are becoming more alive, more awake with each and every experience. It is why you are here. Cast away your doubt and fears. You are a child of God. Be the child of God.
It is through the many awakenings that you have experienced thus far that have brought you here to share with one another the laughter, the unity, the love that you share. This is all because of the awakening. There are many more to look forward to. I urge you to enjoy this process. See the humor. Know that the one standing right next to you is going through the same process. Lend a hand and say “welcome”. Remind them that they are a child of God. Remind them that the important part is the process. Remind them of their greatness. And allow them the opportunity to be, to go through their process. Remind them to trust. We are all so very grateful to be a part of your process, of your awakening, and we love you dearly. Thank you.
JESSONA: (Rick G.): I greet you with my wings open wide, as you traditionally would view my kind. I am a Master Seraphim. I have been on this planet for several centuries. My name is Jessona. I work in one of the departments that is here to aid this planet through the deficiencies resultant from the garden default.
Your Adam continues to this day to be very involved with Urantia. I have even recently held conversation with him in regard to the new movements we are attempting to instill in the cultures around this world. Now that your technology is advancing, and now that the spirit of Michael is among you all, we are experiencing greater success in effecting change, first in each individual who is receptive and willing to function for us, and subsequently in the various social, economic, and industrial arenas on this world.
I pass on to you that your Adam is very impressed with his human friends. You are doing well in spite of his early departure. You have had a very difficult road to travel, and the work is not done. We are keenly aware of you and the many like you who are willing to be servants. This planet needs conscious servants. Unfortunately this word, servant, has held some low caste views here, but it is the highest calling across the universe. Servanthood implies educating yourself, developing your skills, so that you can be ever more effective. It doesn’t mean you only help cause that’s all your low qualifications will allow.
Conscious universe citizens on this world are in great demand. You have been told about my group, and you are here being used by us, as you willingly allows us, to uplift this world. I must take a side note and inform you that this selection of you willing and dedicated souls is not a status symbol. It is a humble placement. Consider for one moment that on this world there are planetary seraphim, there are even supernaphim from Paradise. There are the master Melchizedek teachers, and there are many human ascenders of various levels of progress through the morontia scheme of ascension. We all welcome one another equally. Honor is given back and forth equally. We do not parade status before each other. We come to serve according to our rules, according to our abilities.
This I stress to you as well, for you each are undergoing training. It may appear to be mundane and transient, but every fleeting effort on this world is important. So I encourage you as you work on your own ascension, as you ever endeavor to cooperate with the divine within you, to grow that soul that you will share for eternity that you also be considerate of your planet of nativity. Do more than take pictures and leave footprints. Help this world to reach the stages of light and life that we all seek. You would please your Adam.
Everyone of you have a focus in your daily life. Here is where to apply yourselves with us and for us. You need not seek new occupations. Some of you will be guided toward new avenues for service, but others of you we have fostered your current positions and would be grateful if you continued therein. Not many are willing to entertain the idea that you can work for this planet. It is too grandiose. But look at who has come before you – Michael. His work was very humble, done in sandals. And to use, to amplify, that is to even change, his expression of kicking sand off your sandals, I ask you to continually tack your sand all over everywhere you go. Leave those little nuggets. Sure they may irritate some, but they call attention to everyone.
I thank you for receiving me today. There is a representative from every branch here, and I have been privileged to speak for us at this time. Thank you.
DANIEL: (Bill K.): My dear friends this is your guide and teacher Daniel, one of many group teachers and many, many personal teachers in attendance at our conclave. That is the term we use for the gathering of you mortals and we celestials. A conclave is an event that our Paradise brother, Michael, attends on a regular basis where he returns to his origins along with his brothers from other universes. Even at the level of Paradise perfection, it is thought useful, it is thought necessary for the sons of God to assemble together and rejoice, therefore do we teachers and guides find it appropriate to be rejoicing and feasting upon the fraternity of this wonderful occasion.
While it has been said that the ends are not important, only the journey there, this is not exactly correct for ends are subabsolute in a finite universe and have value in themselves. And such an end is this kind of event where you are together embracing each other in your human love and comparing notes in terms of the progress that you’ve made personally and your group has established. Such resting places on the journey to Paradise are appropriate places for what you would term recharging your batteries, feeling with greater perspective your progress and setting it within the framework of a larger picture.
Hard as it may be to hear these words for some of you, you are, indeed, like an oasis in a desert, like cities set upon a hill who’s light cannot be hid. You are shining forth with soul beauty which is driving away the darkness of ignorance, fear, superstition, doubt, and hatred. You are the apostles of Christ Michael as well as his disciples. To see this day was a dream of many prophets of old and the fulfillment of the yearning of thousands of Urantian years. This reclamation of this planet is part of the great design of Satania whereby Michael assumes true sovereignty over his worlds lost in the past. Lift up your heads my dear friends. Straighten your backs. Be proud and blessed with his wonderful mission that you all have volunteered for.
Many of us have come many distances unimaginable to you who can only traverse the limitations of this globe. We have come in response to the call to serve our younger brothers and sisters, and we are extremely satisfied with this choice. Feel the love that we have for you, and let it, along side of the love that bubbles up within your indwelling spirit, conjoin together to lift your spirits when you become tired, weary, discouraged, and thirsty. Finally, from whom all things come, even the Father himself, know that he is your most intimate companion.
You have heard his words this afternoon spoken through the mind of one of your mortal brothers. These are the words which you can all learn to hear within the sanctuary and sacred place of your mind. This is our greatest objective – to teach you to be in communion and communication with God. I am very happy to great you this afternoon. I am Daniel, a guide and teacher in this, Christ Michael’s mission to Urantia. Good afternoon.
NEBADONIA: (Sheila B.): My children, I am your Mother Spirit. I wish to remind you that with each and every gift that you give that we nourish your heart. Your father and I are so very, very proud of our children as they struggle up the steep slopes of life. Know that you are never low on love. That as you give, we refill. Please take a moment from your day to simply feel our love.
As you know and experience this love it becomes you and shines out. This is how they will recognize you, and this is how they will recognize us. This is how we will heal the world together in our uniqueness and with our light shining far from your human bodies. This is the way. This is the way it was intended. This is your gift to the world, to know your father and I, and to share and to give to those who most unfortunately have not yet become aware. It is our deepest trust in you that we know your gifts will be accepted. It is why we feel such pride for our children who are so willing. Be about your day, and with each and every contact give your father and I a conscious thought and reach out. We love you so dearly. Thank you my children.
Late Night Session Friday July 3, 1998
LINEL: (Thea H.): Greetings. This is LinEl. Dear little brothers and sisters, I greet you tonight from the rest of your family who are standing with you now, amongst you. You have sometimes wondered, some of you, about the status of the Teaching Mission. I think you know tonight from the feeling of love we have shared with this family that the Teaching Mission is alive, and well and thriving. For one of the most important things that we hoped that we could bring to you was this ability to bond together as a family closer in the image of what was intended originally for your world.
When we see you together like this, you cannot know the joy that we feel, because you are learning to live light and life. You are the seeds from which much will spring, and you have already grown. Think about the years we’ve been coming together. Look at the pattern that is now unfolding and blooming and blossoming amongst you. Every year brings new levels of love, tolerance, understanding, support, and my friends, my brothers, my sisters, we are only beginning.
I will keep my words brief for the moment, but I want you to know that our pride in your loyalty is immense, for we cannot do what we have come to do without you, and you are here loyally helping us. We love each and every one of you. We watch you tenderly. We embrace you with love when you do not even know, but you are all learning love in manifold ways. And as your family grows, our family grows, for you also are our family.
I will speak with you again. I love you all, but my love is nothing compared to the love of the Father who has blessed each and every one of us with joys beyond belief. Accept those joys into your hearts. They are yours. They are the Father’s gift of love to you. Farewell.
ANDRONASON: (Michael P.): (Singing) “Old man river. That old man river. He just keeps moving.” 
Greetings. This is Andronason. I always wanted to do that. This particular T/R continues to think of us as being tremendously serious beings, which we are, but also, as I have spoken before with my brothers to you, we have an exceeding lightness to our being which you will perhaps not fully appreciate until we do stand among you either in the flesh of this life or that which lies before you all in the days and beyond’s to come.
I am so tremendously impressed with what I have seen here today, for we used to gather and observe your growing anticipation of signs and wonders, and while it is indeed a wonderful experience we have all been taken with, the signs are pointing to you my friends. Do you not yet realize that you are the ones? I think you should take this… I think you should sit on it.
I’m being rather flip tonight but not really, more I’m overflowing in the love and joy which springs from all of our hearts, celestial and mortal and midway. For we possess a tremendous energy for the Father for ourselves. You have only begun to understand and barely utilized this, but you will look back and be shocked at the gifts that you have received almost without knowing. This is always the way of the Father.
I have the image of you standing, looking out over the mountains here, with your hand raised like Lewis and Clark or some other great explorer, when God stands quietly beside you or behind you smiling, waiting to tap you on the shoulder, for you to turn around and see that the kingdom is in fact right behind you. God has a tremendous sense of humor as well. How could he not?
Well, I could, indeed, go on and on, but there are many more here to speak with you, and I will again. My brothers and sisters, my associates in light and life and the kingdom which is now and to come. God but I love you! I embrace you! Now in spirit, but each individually in time. I yield the floor.
NEBADONIA: (Delores D.): (Singing) “The lucky old sun has nothing to do, but roam around heaven all day.” 
I finally convinced her [the T/R] to do this. This is your Mother Spirit, Nebadonia, and I too am here in great joy and great happiness, embracing you all, my visible brothers and sisters in your eyes, and the brothers and sisters who are also my children whom you cannot see. To me you are one big family gathered together from across the galaxy. You have know idea the peopled room in which you now sit. My heart is full, pulsating, radiant, golden, vibrant, rainbow love.
We see you growing stronger, allowing it to rise up inside you, allowing it to pass out the twinkling of an eye, out the curve of a smile, out the reaching of a hand to one another. There is nothing as lovely as the creation reaching back to the creator, itself to itself, love to love. This is the meaning of life. This is all there is. This is what you have sought. The value that your soul hungers for.
The gifts of your heart are already planted. The Father has chosen each of you and planted the gifts in your heart that will cause you to bloom with the most joy that you can imagine. It is a mystery. We never know what to expect. It is a wonder that keeps us ever on the watch for the possibility for your revealing. You, to us, are the wonder of the universe.
I want to pet you. laughter I am your mother. Come to me. I hold my hands out. I am always here. Lean on me. Fall into my arms. Trust me. Speak with me, and I will always answer. Reach to me, and I will respond. It is a joyous exchange between us. I would wish that you spend time developing your relationship with me, so that you can know this clearer, truer, and more honest in your heart that we are all with you and love you. How many times can we say it? Again and again and again until you really come to know. I will leave you now, although I never do. Seek my embrace, and I will comfort you. Goodnight for now.
LORENZO: (Bob D.): It is my pleasure to have been witness this evening to your presentation of spirit, all you who honor your creator through your creativity. The expression of your innermost being is the emulation of that part of you which is endowed to you.
Life creates many obstacles whereby we must unravel the keys to further expression of your personality. Be cheered in the fact that these obstacles, the trials, the struggles, are the most beautiful stimulators of your creative mind relating the personality and the spirit in your soul. The struggles are joys not burdens. Keep faith that what identifies you will find its highest manifestation through your increasing responsiveness to the situational influences. Sometimes you may feel overwhelmed, occasionally, as though you might be picked on for having the trails that you do, perhaps seeing the seeming ease that others around you may face in comparison, but, indeed, you are the one who has been pointed out to react to particular vicissitudes which cover your doorstep. Perhaps in this view you may have satisfaction in recognizing the opportunities for soul growth.
I personally have experienced a measure of expansion in consciousness by witnessing the cohesion that you display with one another. I value immensely your offering to me, as I come from a planet more settled in light. These emerging unities that form out of seeming chaos are particularly enlightening to one of my background, hence my purpose for traveling to Urantia on assignment, deepening my growth in the experience of serving as a guide to you who exist in a state not that far removed my life. Thank you.
Question: Could you tell us who you are?
TOMAS: (Gerdean): I am Tomas. Good evening. My students, my friends, my children, and my companion in our journey it gives me great joy and radiant satisfaction to be here in this form, in this configuration of faithers, kingdom believers. I rejoice that my voice is heard, and that you hear it as we hear each other with ears to hear these truths which will further our mission, these truths which feed our inner ear today and which tomorrow will feed the hungry in the fields.
I call to your imagination, the field of dreams, the dream field, created by an imaginative man wherein we may play ball. Imagine the lights around this field, and see now your working arena as this field, and in the night it is dark, but as it is lit the victory is impressive. I ask you to look at the energy in these lights that have been turned on in the field. The circuits that pulse in the wattage that give light to the field wherein we may play, and I tell you that these circuits are created to give light, to light up the darkness. These circuits that you and I share are meant to be, to light up the field wherein we may play. It causes my heart to rejoice today to see these lights burning, this field illuminated, this lawn party of believers here in rejoicing in the light of the game we play together.
Tomorrow we will return to these fields of endeavor, and remember that as you keep the light switch open, as you keep your field lit, you can bring light to the game. You cannot play it in the darkness. It is such a joy to feel the light. It is such a joy too to feel the joy of my transmitter who has longed to be among you, to rejoice in the fertility of this field, to smell the pungent growth of you all, and to warble in the greenery of your hearts. It is wonderful for us all to experience your radiant joy and to know of this pulsing energy, this incredible light that is flowing through you through us and to recognize…(recording lost to tape noise) I look forward to our next meeting, and I look forward to…my brothers and sisters…
MERIUM: (Gerdean):…(lost to tape noise)…And yet, I understand that your honor to us and to them on high is based on faith and mine is based on a reality awareness. Just as you can look at each other across the room or next to you and see each other, touch each other, feel each other, this I can do with your teachers because we are one in the spirit. Now I can almost hear Tomas telling me, “Mary lighten up. Fluff up the pillows. I’ll handle the heavy stuff.” And so, I will smile. I like to smile. I smile always in my T/R. My grin goes from ear to ear. (tape noise returns… faintly audible sign off from teacher.)
MICHAEL: (Nancy K): (Intensely inaudible tape noise covers over message from Michael) Greetings my faithful…I am . .. your benefactor, your source, your brother, father, Michael. I am overwhelmed this evening in the overflowing of your comprehension, expression of spirit unity. I dance with joy. I smile. I laugh. . .. I am delighted beyond adequate expression. You are growing rapidly. I am grateful to you for accepting my call, for hearing my words to follow me. You are following admirably.
You are learning how to express family, how to experience and extend love that verges on the unconditional. You truly please me. As you have been told on occasion through many, the light . .. My light is bursting above the horizon with the new . ..Today has been a great and significant day for you and for this planet… You are expressing living balance, the balance I wish all my children to know. You have expressed yourselves… You have relaxed and enjoyed and loved. Some of you have engaged in physical activities. You have engaged your intellect. You have been nourished in body, mind, and spirit. You have let your emotions become real, that healing is available… As your father, as your brother I am so delighted. I pat each of you on the head. I embrace you, squeeze you, toss you into the air, catch you…love you…. (Tape ends)
Teaching Mission Regional Conference Bogus Basin, Idaho Saturday, July 4, 1998 Session with Terry and Marlene Olsen, Julie Drebing, Mary Rogers, Jael Regis, Melissa Wilson, and Rick and Barbara Giles.
ELYON: (Jonathan TR): I embrace you today lovingly and warmly, with every attempt to do so for you as Michael does for myself and for you. It is one of the great experiences of life, no matter what your station, to be a recipient of Michael’s love, for his gentle hand of guidance, for even his corrective support. You know of the many times in which the apostles received admonition and reprimand. They took it well, for they loved the Master in return. And you, I see, are equally diligent in being alert to those factors in your life which stand in need of change. You are also positively focused toward attainment, not just correction but actually reaching for a new level, even if it entails adjustment subsequently. I am Elyon, and I greet you.
ELYON: As you make the effort to grow, you will encounter uncertainty. It is a natural part of the process, for it would not be growth with certainty; that would be the expression of prior attainment. In order to proceed through your incomplete grasp to reach another stage in personality attainment, you are applying faith, and your are displacing fear. As you walk this path, it becomes ever more clear to you that what you have grown into before is greatly expediting where you are going to now. It has a momentum effect like a snowball. Michael reached Light and Life at a young age for he was ever diligent in applying himself toward future attainment. I am willing to take your questions or comments at this time.
MARLENE: Thank you for your many lessons in your group. They do filter out to others, as I am sure you know. Our group has so enjoyed these marvelous lessons. Thank you.
ELYON: You are quite welcome, and I thank you in return, along with my associate Evelyn who has assisted in my mission to carry the word of the Melchizedeks to others.
I would address the comments of Terry and repeat what I shared with my group a few weeks back. Light is revelation. Life is evolution. You are the meeting of the two. You have correctly discerned that this light is the presence of the Father. This inner spiritual luminosity transmutes into mindal enlightenment. It then becomes that light which so shines it blesses all others. All throughout the universe we are witnessing the creation of matter as it has condensed out of energy. This energy, many of us are still dumbfounded as to how it comes into being.
Yet we witness on this stage of matter the development of such a broad spectrum of living beings that it becomes even more baffling how life can manifest itself in such variety. Then there are those higher than both of us who are amazed that we can rise up out of the organismal level of life, out of the biological elements of matter, and perceive the Father and receive the Father and become one with the Father. This is, indeed, a miracle. Then we witness within ourselves the emergence of the Creator of life.
It is often said that, if you simply open your heart and receive him, he will commune with you. This is very true of your Creator Son. However, with the Father, when you open the door to your heart, you are letting Him out. He is already within you; He has already come to dwell. So, there is the divine downreach, but in reality it is an upreach from within you. And for you it is an inreach, more correctly so, than an upreach.
It has been said that heaven is in your mind; I correct this: Heaven is in your spirit. This pilot light illuminates the realities of Paradise as best as it can be transmuted into the mind and soul of an evolutionary creature. The Father has projected life from Paradise, through Havona, out into the stretches of the universe, and we are all reaching back in our lives toward Him. We are creation, in a sense, in reverse. The Father has cast abroad; we are all gathering in return.
Light is and has been and will be always. Life is creation. Life will become the reflection of light. The pure, unadulterated luminosity of the Father becomes animated, orientated, directionalized, refracted through you. This is the Father’s will. He desires to experience the spectrum in display of His luminosity, all of which is pure brilliance at His residential abode.
Having said what I have, are there comments?
Terry: Only thank you.
Julie: (During the conference) . .. it’s been easy to see light in other people, but at home there have been times when I tried to find their Thought Adjuster, to see if they have one, and I can’t. So, I think I don’t really need to; if they have one, they have one. But in searching for that connection in these people, is there a tool?
ELYON: My sister, I offer you this comment. You are one who is in a position where you witness a spectrum of humanity which often rebels against light. We have spoken of the inner spirit as the pilot light. The human being is the navigator light. This is a means whereby you may determine the presence of the Thought Adjuster: is that personality navigating? Is that personality charting its course based on the map of the Father’s will? If not, then you enter into the uncertain zone of: does this individual know of the reality of the map of the Father’s will? Does this individual realize the responsibility of navigating this life vehicle toward the Father? If this individual has rejected this notion, then you must, because of your mortal condition, leave the rest to the Father, for it is His choice to remain or to withdraw. Here also is your opportunity to minister, to in some way either through demonstration or comment attempt to bring into awareness the privilege and opportunity every personality has to navigate their way back to the Father. I hope this has been helpful.
Julie: Yes, thank you.
Mary: So, there are people on the planet who are Thought Adjuster-less?
ELYON: This is not in my liberty to say to you. But I would offer the reflection: this is Urantia.
Julie: Elyon, do you have any words for me about working at the school? I’m excited to be going back.
ELYON: We have been working with this idea of pilot and navigator. These young souls who you have the opportunity to minister to can benefit from the vision that life is navigable, that there are radar resources through which they can determine what is out there in life and how they may carry themselves toward their goals. That skill will take them into any field of endeavor and help them to experience success.
Of course, not only is your direction in life important, but your manifestation in this moment is also very important. It will be rather simple for you to reveal this present sense of belonging, of acceptance toward life, joyous anticipation of excited love. You have already done your homework in this arena, so I really have no advice for you.
Barbara: Having heard from Jessona, I would like to know how we can more consciously participate in these divisions of Master Seraphim.
ELYON: As Jessona has stated, the fields of activity you enlist in, they are your starting points. Then it is good to assess current conditions within any particular field, and to grasp your high values and ideals in relation to any field, and to seek creative methods to infuse these ideals into these fields. When you elect and enact this procedure, the Master Seraphim are alerted and come to your assistance. So, you will not be as conscious of their hand in your affairs as you will make them keenly aware of your hand in these affairs. Does this help?
Barbara: Yes, that’s true.
Mary: I’m surprised to feel so much emotion this weekend, like feeling the desire to hold my hand to my heart. You know me; do you have any insights into working with all these emotions? They all feel good, just curious and unexpected.
ELYON: Socially these gatherings of yours are quite beneficial in that they recharge your spiritual batteries, pump you up, and prepare you for another stretch of what is apparently a mundane life. However, beyond your ability to effect this other than your election to attend, we take the opportunity to adjust you in the circuits. This isn’t often the case on a normal world, but on Urantia the encircuitment of even the adjutants is different than on a world where evolution has proceeded according to a divine plan. The animal nature undergoes alteration. You feel this in those receptive centers of the physical form. But this is only a repercussion of a deeper transformation. So, rejoice in being sensitive to the work.
I would add one more point, that all of you will leave here with this new vibration, and it will reverberate into your surroundings. Others will enjoy your presence; some will not know why. Others will detect and will begin or continue their pursuit of the very things you are attaining now. Does this provide illumination?
Mary: Yes, thank you.
ELYON: You know that I also underwent a re-keying not too long ago.
Barbara: Is this something similar to that?
ELYON: Within the definition of the Correcting Time, it is. It’s compensatory.
Mary: Emotions can really run away with you. You don’t want to rein them in too much nor turn fanatical or hysterical. I feel it emotionally and physically.
ELYON: : May I make a picture for you?
Mary: Oh, yes.
ELYON: The mind is like the equalizer in your sound system. It functions to heighten or restrict various frequencies. Your emotions are like your volume control. When the mind is equalized, emotions adjusted to the right decibel, then you reflect your soul. As you said, if the volume is too high, or too low, you restrict this, or you become out of control. But the mind and the emotions work together. I hope this has been helpful, as well.
Mary: Yeah, you are my buddy.
ELYON: You are my sis.
Spirit of Truth
MICHAEL: I likewise greet you this hour. This is Michael. I would share with you that there were many hours that I sat with my original twelve and discussed many things, not unlike the conversation of this hour. How I longed for the Spirit of Truth to be dwelling within them as he does now. My very presence is with you. Rejoice in this, children. You know not how expeditious it is to have me with you always. Although I knew of the spirit and how it was soon to be given to my associates, I also understood how I had to undergo the sense of longing for this presence to be poured out upon you all. I had to experience its absence. Now I too understand what it is like to not understand. So, when you are troubled and uncertain, do know that I am with you always.
ELYON: This is Elyon returning, and I really have nothing else to say following that. If you are content, I will withdraw. I do thank you for your request to hear from me and for your attention.
