[[Note: Althena, the Group Teacher for the East Bay, Berkeley, CA TM group is tr’d by Susan Kimsey, and Olfana, the Group Teacher for the Half Moon Bay, CA TM group is tr’d by John Creger. This is a reversal of the normal roles for both TR’s, and everyone at the gathering was surprised to hear Althena speaking through Susan, instead of John, including Susan and John!]]
ALTHENA: (TR Susan) Blessings shower down upon us in this room. We are in the presence of many Dear Ones–Teachers, Guides, Midwayers–who serve with love and faith in this process. We are bound together, now, with the blessing and joy of creative service in the name of Christ Michael. Let our hearts open now to this process. We are one in our commitment to serve now with integrity, and a sense of joy and excitement that this world does now begin to heal itself. There is much work to be done, much effort to come of this movement, and you, my dear children, are a precious gift to us, now, in this process. We are most grateful that you come together with the intention to further understand the process by which the Teaching Mission reaches out to the world in its redemptive service.
ALTHENA: I am the Teacher, Althena, and it is not a common process for me to speak through S, now, but I wish to have my voice expressed through her for a moment. I come from a planet most beautiful in its evolution, and I say to you now that your planet embarks upon this same process of growth and development. You will see the beauty increase in this world. You will begin to feel the revitalizing energy, which can indeed begin to emanate through your beings, as God’ s Love continues to increase and produce great blessings in this world.
This is the gift of this season, that God’s Love reaches to all of us, and expresses itself in the symbol of our beloved Christ Michael entering this world. You, as Urantia Book readers, understand that this is not the specific time and date of this event, but the consciousness now on the planet within your minds and hearts is this sense of the beauty and new arrival of this gift to your world. I wish you to spread this joy in your interactions with all those you meet within this season.
Love in indeed a gift that we can pass from one to another. Love sustains us in ways mysterious, and yet at the same time, understandable. We are indeed created out of love, and therefore we resonate most strongly to the energy and vibration of this Gift from God Within Us. Let yourselves express this marvelous gift in your very being. Breathe in the love. Exhale the love. Walk with the pace of love. View the world with love. Touch and caress others with love. Speak with love in your heart and mind and voice.
This is the most beautiful and positive expression of yourself that you can make. And I would encourage all of you to realize that you have just begun to understand all the ways in which this beauty of love augments your being. I come from a planet where we easily see the love flowing within our beings. We are touched by this in all our relationships. Help to develop this as a model among those of you on this planet. Be yourselves with love, in love, by love, through love, of love, and you will indeed be resonant with this Divine Energy, and you will best express the message of the Creator Son in his gift to this world. I close my statement with greetings of the season to all of you, and I want you to know how precious each of you are to those of us who serve now in the Teaching Mission.
OLFANA: (TR John) Greetings to each of you. I am the Teacher, Olfana, and just as you mortals work in groups or pairs, threes, we celestials also tend to find working alliances and chummy situations whereby we may encourage and inspire and teach those of you who have opened your ears and your hearts to the beginnings of widespread communication from the universe.
Unlike my sister, Althena, I myself have begun my journey on a most disturbed planet, and am entirely familiar on every level with the legacy of rebellion. I have struggled in my existences beyond the mortal life to rise above the tribulation which was my experience in my mortal incarnation. And I triumphed over this challenge, this tribulation! And part of my process of continuing to move into higher and higher levels of awareness entails assisting my slightly younger siblings, yourselves, to also rise through the limitations which weigh so heavily upon you.
When my sister, Althena, urged you to be yourselves, and to do so in love and with love, she is asking for a most profound openness on your part to a transformation from within. As with all transformations, this transformation entails releasing ideas and assumptions about yourself that are part of the legacy of rebellion, which would have you persist in your fixed ideas about who you are, and what you are capable of, and what you are not capable of.
When my sister asks you to “be yourself,” she is not asking that you be the self with which you are already most familiar. She is asking that you allow the potentialities, which the Father has sown within you, to emerge into your awareness and into your experience. And she is asking that your love, the love you have for God, and the love you have for your fellow creatures, incite you to open yourself to this “self within,” “these selves within” that await your openness to spring into being.
You are more than you think you are! You are more beautiful than you think you are. You are more talented than you think you are. You are more gracious than you know you are. You have more love at the fingertips of your soul than you can dream of! Continue to bond with one another. Continue to establish working relationships to assist you in bringing your deeper selves into the light. Continue to seek the Will of the Father Within, for it is His Will that all you are is shared with all you meet.
OLFANA: I will close my words at this point, to make way for others who wish to speak. I leave you with my boundless admiration for your persisting faith, and the love that you are showing your brothers, your sisters, here and there.
