SERENA: [Cathy] We are happy to bring news of progress in the Magisterial Mission. Although the situation on the planet has become more politically and physically volatile, our activities have increased and progress is evolving in many areas. The personal spiritual development of individuals has been on the increase in an exponential way. The fields are fertile and the seeds have been sown. The proponents of growth have been provided in abundance. We are sending waves of spiritual light onto the planet. All of this will lead to an increase of spiritual action and relationship. The movement is proceeding in a positive direction. Together we will bring the plan to fruition.
LIGHT: [Cathy] I would also bring my good news of the increase of light at all levels on Urantia. More and more inhabitants on the planet are becoming aware of the light and possibilities of its use. From our vantage point, the gleam of illumination is growing and spreading across broad areas of the planet. It is a beautiful thing to behold. It is a growing testament to spirit and the power of mortals to connect with spirit. Continue to grow and focus your light, it is an inspiration to all. My love and service are with you in this process.
Patience, Human Condition
GORMAN: [Henry] Greetings to you all, it would be wonderful if words had the same impact as silence, [then] maybe humans wouldn’t be so spiritually derogatory, they could be more spiritually exemplary, spiritual examples of freshness, of negotiation, fragrance. From a spiritual standpoint, patience is an enduring quality. It is the relationship of spirit to humans, mostly patience. This stands in stark contrast to the impatience of humans. Maybe this has to do with the time/life cycle where we really have, in the spirit world, no time/life cycle. We have beauty cycles but humans for the most part have a tremendously short time/life cycle. Maybe this is why humans are always in such a hurry, yet in the moment, there is ample time for patience. There is ample time to receive guidance, there is ample time to still your mind, there is ample time to observe silence.
There is ample time to put a series of events into perspective. There is ample time to become aware, aware of consciousness, aware of presence, aware of possibilities. Very few of these things occur in the impatient pace of mankind. There was a time on your world where there was not such a phrenetic pace to your existence; it was more of a trot, a walk. Each stage of mans progressive evolution is beset with its own set of circumstances, but you know, a human race cannot co-exist for a very long time running full pace. It’s like the human body, with the heart beating abnormally high or the blood pressure abnormally high, it can only operate for a circumscribed amount of time before it begins to compromise the health of the system, run itself down and quickly die out.
It is hard to bring something into balance when one side is always prone to imbalance. It is hard to be conscious of the moment when the moments are moving so quickly you cannot slow time down to observe a single moment. But mankind wants to be reassured, mankind want to feel that everything is okay, everything will eventually work itself out. Everyone wants to feel as if there is no need for them to change anything, everything is fine as it is. This is part of the terms of equality, that each part is acknowledged as equal to the other parts in importance, in entitlement, all the while there are only a few parts willing to step aside to allow for the possibility of adjustment.
Even in these phrenetic times there is goodness, there is compassion, there is a forward struggle to work out conflicts, to negotiate discrepancies and to bring light into situations which are not made visible with their own amount of light. The work of human endeavor is the same as it has been for thousands of years since the Master visited your planet and alerted the folk that their duty was to begin to love and respect each other as they love and respect the great notion of the Fatherhood of God, the primacy of God, the love of God. It doesn’t matter how fast you go, how much you have, where you think you are going. All of this takes a second chair to the effort put forth to acknowledge one another, to be useful and to be of service to one another, to step out of the intellectual functions of right and wrong and just be.
Is spiritual awareness a poison to the human mind? Is it something the human mind should avoid? Is love poison; is it something that should be refused to be given to someone else because it is not politically correct, it may be detrimental to their well being? Is light like the sun; is it something that should be shut off for half the day? Is God just a belief for conflict, a germ for warfare? Look at the simpleness of the human life. Most have to eat every day and in doing so they have to provide for this daily function, yet it is also important that man breathe, takes a breath every few seconds, yet the air is provided for mankind to breathe. The sun provides warmth and photo-electrons for life, vegetative life, animal and human life. The planet is provided with water to nurture, on a cellular level, all aspects of life.
You’re just asked to do one thing; but man is clever, he has an intellect. He has figured out millions of ways to avoid doing that one thing in the name of everything. It is true what is said: “You do not know what you have until it is gone.” But what do human say? But we didn’t know, we were too busy upholding our beliefs, we weren’t paying attention to life. All of life yearns for expression and all expression eventually praises the glorious God. It is God alone who is great and in this moment of greatness, God decided to share this greatness with the animal kingdom. God decided to indwell one of the species of sapient animals.
To show the correctness of this relationship, early on your species dropped its tail, an indication that you were transforming, you were transforming into an expression which extended beyond the animal reference. Then again, as spirit, we have patiently watched over the millennia, patiently done our task helping humans grow in consciousness and awareness, watching for those that became aware of their inner guidance, all the while giving support to all, equally. It was never expected that mankind would get it overnight, but when the universe has made an effort to send physical spiritual messengers to your world, we did anticipate an increase in resonance with these beings.
Do not forget, you are working with an allotment of time. All life works with an allotment of time and eventually mankind will come to a spiritual fruition, whether it is in your allotment of time or anothers’; this really makes no difference to us. But you do live in times in which all of the information to achieve this is available. It is available to everyone, in every language, in every country of the world. Spirit is doing its part to bringing you ever closer to your own awareness of these universal truths, these universal facts. It is to this awareness that I speak to you today. It is with humble patience that spirit awaits your call. Thank you for allowing me these words, it is I, Gorman.
MICHAEL: [Cathy] My children, I join in this celebration of light and growth. I am, as you know, in full action to implement the plan. I hold you all in my embrace of love and encouragement. When I developed this plan of correction it was with the vision of many parts growing and combining into the original plan from the Father. When I initiated this plan, it was with the knowledge that mortal participation would be a key component. My children, I am grateful to find that many are eager to join in my plan and follow my lead. Your freewill dedication to the project has been an affirmation of our connection.
Be assured in the reality and durability of this connection. Be assured that I am always available to help and support you. Be assured that I always hold you close in love and parental joy. It is the full relationship of Creator and creation in joy and celebration. You are my greatest achievement and I celebrate your growth and steps toward the Father. Together we are one with the Father of all and His pattern. Know that I am eager to participate with you at your invitation. You only need to ask and I will be with you.
