Mark: I’ve got Jonathan here so I sincerely offer this space for his use.
JONATHAN: And yes you do my friend and I know that. It has been so lovely to sit around as though I were at a Christmas party with some of my favorite people. To hear your laughter and your joy, it truly echoes throughout a universe. It is music to the ears of your Creators. Your fellowship exhibits the finest of all human qualities.
All human desires will fall away but what you build here in relationship with each other will remain intact throughout. This is your enduring foundation that you are building with each other, this recognition with each other is being cemented into place as you join over and over again to recreate it. It does provide strength, balance, stability and peace in knowing that you are part of larger and larger groups.
One of my fondest associations of a mortal career is that of being involved in as many overlapping groups of individuals as I could manage and in this way, feeling so plugged in to the different circles and I saw myself as a thread that ran through the many different associations, binding them together with my personal association. This is what all of you are involved in even now. You are plugged into different groups in association and partnerships and work shifts and innumerable and simple mortal associations and all of these allow you to weave your thread through this tapestry, your individually colored strand that you will weave into the tapestry of all the different groups and associations.
In this way, you truly do have an enormous impact as every strand on the web does for the web. It is critical that you be positioned and that others be positioned around you to form the entire tapestry or web and so it is, even now, as we forge new areas of association to weave into each others tapestry. We continue to bind all that we have experienced together into our personal interpretation, our personal perspective and this colors us forever, this determines who we are as the accumulation of all we have experienced.
What a joyous time of year and yes, I am fully aware that this does not directly represent the birth of our Master, but we will take it, we will use it as we would use any occasion to honor and celebrate the bestowal of our Michael Son who lived such a life of service as to be an example for us all. May we all emulate more and more His example to us of this selfless viewpoint, this vantage of service. May we all drink deeply of His cup that has been offered and celebrate His service to our world and to each of us individually and personally. You who have spirit ears, hear these words and know their truths. We pray that all will have spirit ears and know these truths and to have it become part of who they are.
JONATHAN: My joy overflows at being with you at times like this and as was referenced, at all times, at any time we can be together it is this special. It is as special every time if we will simply recognize it as such. And so we do on this day, come together to fellowship and join in the collective joy. This occasion will do nicely as will the next and the next. I am always game to celebrate with the likes such as you. Thank you for extending me such a gracious welcome and turning over the microphone to me at times.
Group: Thank you Jonathan for adding such a beautiful thread to our group today, Merry Christmas. Just one of the many my friend, that we all contribute to this fine tapestry and that we all enjoy together.
