Q & A: Capability to serve Monjoronson
Dealing with socially unacceptable behavior.
May 15, 2005
RAYSON: Good afternoon, this is Rayson.
(Group welcomes him.)
RAYSON: It is good to be here with you once again. You noticed, did you not, that spring is here? It follows winter; summer will be here soon, then fall and winter once more and spring again. This is typical of the regularity to the universe, a pattern that emanates from the core of its beginnings, one that is out-patterned all around you, and remarkably, within you. You carry with you the seeds of your greatness; carry with you the seeds of your profound “becoming.” You have within you immense resources that are infinite for you to fulfill in an infinite life. You have begun the most important part of the journey, and that is your conscious participation. You have engaged that journey by making decisions—you are “on your way.”
There is another who is “on his way,” and that is the Avonal Son who you call Monjoronson. No one knows the time of his arrival, not any of the celestial teaching staff; it is a matter of concert with Christ Michael and others who manage this realm. We have asked you before, are you ready for him?
Students: Yes. I hope so, etc.
RAYSON: There was a time when—even now in some religions—that believers would feel unworthy, undeserving of his arrival, of his participation in their life. There are others who—at the opposite extreme —say, “Yes, we are surely ready!” And they are ready in anticipation.
My question today for you is for your humble assessment. We wish you to assess your preparedness for his arrival, and surely there will be, a need for a core group of individuals who know that they are “not ready,” yet who are actually ready. They have humbly assessed themselves and are willing to examine themselves, heal themselves, and be a part of his team. And that will be an expanding team of people, individuals who know they are not perfect, but in the process of perfection—those individuals who are ready to serve.
When you contemplate the extremes of being unworthy and of being deserving, those are very large extremes. Worthy and unworthy are different, but unworthy and deserving are quite different yet. Do you see the distinction? We of the Teaching Mission have given you so many lessons, and we see you struggle with yourselves. And so many of you are as Peter said about himself, “I believe, yet help me with my unbelief.”
How do you know when you are ready? Do you think that Monjoronson will ask you to all line up and he will put a spot on your forehead, saying, “You are ready”; “Ooops, you are not”; “You are ready;” and so on. No, it does not work that way. It is not the final sorting by the Ancients of Days for those who want to participate in their infinite career, or not. In this case, you simply say you are ready.
Will it be exciting for you to be part of the remedial classes of his staff, to bring you up to an even level, where you can serve diligently, faithfully, constructively, consistently, with the purposes of his mission? And just as Jesus knew who would be his most faithful, strongest disciples, and those who would not be, so too will the Avonal Son know you as thoroughly, as completely, even more than you know yourself, and will be most capable of helping you with your remedial classes.
What is the most powerful instrument that you can carry with you through all of these challenges in this lifetime, whether you see Monjoronson or not? Is it hope? Is it love? Is it humility? We are taught that it is humility, for humility empowers love. Humility knows already that there is hope. Humility trusts in the good, in wholeness, the message that is there from higher sources. Humility… humility is the great badge of those who serve.
How humble is Christ Michael now, my friends? He is Sovereign of all Nebadon, proven Sovereign Creator Son, having sojourned through seven experiences outside his Creator Sonship. How humble is the greatest being of all Nebadon? Believe me, my friends, his humility is equal to his Sovereignty, for in both he serves you, he serves Nebadon, he serves as the Creator serves. The Creation is an expression of their Sovereignty, their willingness to be, to become, and to know themselves more greatly.
Humility is the signpost and symbol of greatness. That is perhaps astounding to you, but let me tell you that in humility there is no separation—none is seen and none is taken. In humility there is oneness, there is commonality, there is the awareness that “There I have been too,” so Christ Michael is perhaps the most humble, for he has been there too. He has had seven bestowals and had to be so humble to experience them, to submit himself to that, to be the total, perfect sovereign with equally immense humility — profound humility.
Personal humility is essential. Where there is pride, where there is ego, arrogance, [and] condescension, there is a lack of humility. These cause separation. These cause differentiation. We say that you have no need to be different from others, for you are already so unique. The willfulness and the desire to be different from others and also the same as others is a sign of immaturity. Whether those are the signs and symbols of wealth, of greatness, or perhaps even self-denigration, poverty, a lack of having what others have, what others accept.
In humility, there is no comparison—you do not compare yourself, for there is no desire to. Comparison is an estimation of separation, of differentiation. Only in greatest humility should you compare yourself to where you were, and this is the greatest comparison, the most significant one you can make. And each of you here today, should be able to say—in comparison to yourself today from three years ago, “I have learned a great deal. I have become more than I was.” This is not bragging—this is a simple estimation of your maturity, your growth.
Do you remember Jesus telling the Disciples about the “The last being first, and the first being last”? This is an exercise in humility. The person who is truly humble would say, “It does not make a difference where I am in the lineup, as long as I can serve.” “Whether I am the office manager or the errand-boy in Monjoronson’s office, I know that I have a position of importance, because I am serving.” Many of you will not be part of his staff, but yet will be of great service in ways that will be revealed to you. Be humble enough to trust that you will receive messages. Trust enough and be humble enough to know that you have received a message.
In humility, there is also great patience—patience with yourself and patience with others. When it comes to others, in great humility you could say, “Yes, I have done that too.” Or, “Yes, although I have not done it, I perhaps could and I do not want to do that.” In humility you say it may be possible, but I will resist that—being in error, perhaps. Humility is your greatest asset, though the least visible. Is it humble to resist positions of authority? Is it humble to say, “No, I cannot serve, I would be too exposed, I would be too vulnerable to the positions of power.”
My friends, the greatest humility must be in the positions of great power, for only then will you have authentic, genuine leadership that is capable of leading grandly with vision, with substance, with longevity. When you think of humility and leadership, you also consider courage—courage to lead and be humble. This is one of the greatest challenges of all humanity at the individual level—how to be in a position of great power, yet humble to exercise it appropriately, and to exercise so that authority is expressed, so things get done.
If you are in a position of leadership and you are not humble, you may overstep your bounds. But others, my friends, have not exercised the power of their authority, for fear of “looking bad”, of making the wrong decisions. What is the benefit of that? There is none. You must make decisions. You are in a position of power over your life. You are the executive of your life and you must make decisions in order to progress. And if you do not make decisions, you will face the consequences; you will “face the music,” you will be entreated and engaged by those in the morontial level for your lack of decision-making on this most important plane, the material and physical, mortal realm.
Now, in this mortal realm, you must have courage, humility and hope—hope that you can make good decisions; hope that you can make right decisions; hope that when you do make decisions they are effective and productive. In that context, faith must be exercised; faith that you will make the right decision; trust that you will make the right decision when you do so co-creatively, with the participation of Christ Michael or your Thought Adjuster, Guardian Angels or whomever is assisting you. And you can know that you will make right decisions when you are in co-creative contact with those beings.
If you do not hear when you talk to your Thought Adjuster, Guardian Angel, or a Melchizedek—be in the stillness. Go into the stillness with the intention of receiving answers, whether you hear them or not. Trust that when the time comes to make a decision you will have all the information, all the insights available to you through those times of stillness.
Be patient with yourselves, my friends. You are not perfect. Do not revile your imperfection, but accept it, knowing that you can make right decisions anyhow. Be patient! Every day is a new day—you need not be weighed down by past mistakes of your lives. Be patient with yourself, knowing that you can begin making right decisions today. You can begin forming a wonderful history of right decisions and right actions, beginning today.
I encourage you to see your life as an adventure, with more than yourself in company. Be as small children, who believe they have an entourage of invisible beings with them, their toys are alive with them, moving with them—their teddy bears and visible fairies and elves and such. Believe that you are similar as this; know that you do have a Guardian Angel, that you have midwayers who are most eager to assist you. Do not put your lives on hold, my friends. Make decisions. Move ahead. These are not the last days! This is not the Apocalypse. The rapture that many desire is here now; the rapture of being a co-creator with your Thought Adjuster, actively with Christ Michael, engaged with your Guardian Angel, working with the plans of the Melchizedeks. You have an adventure to live! What a sublime way to live—the awareness, the ecstasy of personal, intimate contact with the Infinite—on a daily basis! This is how your life really is.
[Daniel: He says there is something else, so I am going to be still and see what it is.]
RAYSON: Soon you will be meeting in Philadelphia, or thereabouts, is this correct?
RAYSON: We wish you to have the same awareness that there is also going to be a conclave of celestial, angelic, and Melchizedek beings there at the same time. [Pause]
RAYSON: (Continuing): There are always adaptations to plans. It is important that right development occur. When these developments are incurred, that they do so in a timely manner, and that is the only timeliness that is involved. It is a sequencing of developments that unfold, rather than the developments in tune with the clock or the calendar or scheduled by weeks. Timing and timeliness of developments is most important for the greatest effectiveness and outcomes of those plans. Whether one deals with Monjoronson’s plans to be here, the preparations for his arrival, or whether it is the up-stepping of your institutions, it is a matter of development and timeliness. You are aware that oftentimes, in the marketplace of life, many things come into being only to wither and die, but resurrect decades later and be quite successful. This is wrong timing, originally, and will be delayed for right development, later.
I am able to tell you that plans continue to develop for the healing of your planet. There are continuing developments across the globe that will enable this to occur. The empowerment of it comes from the unseen realms that work so diligently among you, on this planet. Where some [mortals] are ready now, others do not have an idea that there is anything to be ready for. Some of you could receive his [Monjoronson’s] presence now and do quite well; others would be overcome with awe and act in a dumbstruck manner.
If you believe in karma, then you know that you have chosen this time to be here to adapt and support the plans for the enfoldment of your planet. If you do not believe in karmic plans and those developments, then you are here at the right time. We ask that you be open and flexible to these events. Your world will be exposed to many turbulent developments on the mortal plane, yet we wish you to remain calm in your homes, in your heart, in your mind, and say to yourself, “This is quite interesting. It is traumatic on the outside, but I feel a sense of security on the inside, knowing that all will be well.”
Your conscious agreement with right outworking is most important to enhance the receptivity of your planet to changes. Your thoughts and attitudes do affect the well being of your planet. This is not mumbo jumbo talk; this is good theory, good planning, and good preparation for all of you. Be at peace always. Know that peace abides in the universe and you can choose to be a part of it or not. Do not let your outer circumstances dictate how you respond. Remain humble, thankful for what you have, for the capacity to serve, for the capacity to receive, for the capacity to transcend what you live through. Take in these experiences wisely; do not forget them. Strive to learn from these experiences now, and those that come into your life.
You need not wait until you arrive on the morontial planes to figure out where the pieces of the puzzle fit and what is happening. You can know these things as they occur. It is our wish for you, at your conference that you would go about your business with an understanding and knowingness that you go with companions who are unseen. This may have been organized by mortals at a mortal location, but my friends, there will be a mighty enclave of spiritual beings there with you, striving to infuse you with a harmony, oneness, a compassion for each other and a knowingness that this is greater than all of you, greater than the sum of all your parts.
And each of you, who do attend, should know that you will come away with far more than you arrived with. You will come away with something more in your thoughts, in your mind and your peace than you had when you arrived at the conference. Know that you are emissaries of peace. Know that you have this, though you may not be conscious of what it is that you have.
Be aware that you are a recipient of new plans for your life in your communities and in your family. You have chosen to be leaders; you have chosen to be part of an advance corps of individuals who are preparing the way. You will have an understanding of these larger events in your outer life that others do not. Do not be afraid to provide peaceful interpretations of these events for those around you. Be a calming influence upon the choppy waters of your times.
I am open for questions now, if you have any.
Student: Rayson, thank you for this topic today—it was exactly what I needed. I feel that I can easily welcome Monjoronson and his staff, but I don’t have an idea of what kind of service would be helpful to him, for me to provide. I am willing to do whatever I am capable of.
RAYSON: You have answered your own question. All you need to provide is a willingness to serve. You will not be called to serve without capacity or the capabilities to serve. When you are called, your willingness to accept the call is all that is needed. Know that you will be able to serve in the capacity that you have been called for.
Student: Thank you.
RAYSON: My staff and I wish to thank you for your hospitality. We wish to extend to you our willingness to assist you in your personal, business, and family lives, wherever you are. Good day.
(Group good byes.)
Student: I had a question I hadn’t quite clarified how I wanted to ask it. Would Rayson still be available for a more personal question?
Daniel: He said he’s available. Do you want to try?
Student: Yes, please. I was observing a disturbing situation this week that makes me ask if Rayson would offer some personal advice regarding how best to deal with a person who is creating a disturbance, who appears to have an emotional/mental difficulty. In terms of how to continue to accept and love and – I guess acceptance isn’t the greatest part – compassion, forgiveness for unacceptable behavior, and yet know where to set the boundaries or what one can do as far as holding a person accountable for – or holding them responsible for unacceptable behavior, yet realizing that this person is probably, from time to time, not really capable of managing their emotions or their behavior. I’m not sure if this is very clear, but we all have instances where we have to deal with people, with whom we cannot at that particular time, reason. They’re kind of emotionally out of control. I guess that’s my question.
RAYSON: In the context of yourself, you are the only one whom you truly can control. It is essential then, dear one, to maintain your own emotions of being fair, of being still, of being patient when you are apart from this person, and you contemplate them in your mind. Is that clear so far?
RAYSON: You are the manager of their own being, and you are responsible for your being, for your acting out, for your thoughts and for your words.
You, as an individual, still apart from the social group in contact with this person, can be a very powerful instrument for good. One, pray for your self for clear understanding, and two, pray for compassionate clarity and understanding on the part of the other person. See them as being peaceful, levelheaded, loving.
Of all the things you could do for them from a distance is to project love towards them. This is not love in the contemporary sense, but love of harmony, of oneness, of being-ness, of being within the embrace of Christ Michael and Nebadonia, one who is in the embrace of their Thought Adjuster. See them at peace. Peace is perhaps the best parallel for the projection of love that you can give towards them. See them in a wonderful cocoon of love, of peace; see them as being at peace. Do you have that so far?
RAYSON: Within the context of a social meeting – let us say that it is yourself and this other person – you know the issues that cause them to be emotionally distraught, do you not?
Student: Not really. It seems there is a lot more underlying what appears to be the issue, like background that I am not aware of.
RAYSON: Then let us proceed to the social setting. You, as one of several people who are at a social gathering, may or may not be talking with this person. Be of a clear mind before you go there, knowing that this person may be disruptive. Be aware in your mind of what is acceptable social behavior, and what is not. Now, you can easily see that if everyone acted in a similarly distraught manner, that you have chaos at this location, would you not?
RAYSON: Certainly. Therefore, one person acting in a distraught manner, shouting and throwing their arms about and acting out their emotions, their discordant thinking is not appropriate, it is not productive. You, as one of many, should have in mind what you could do if this occurs again. You want free expression; you do not want to be overbearing. But you also want to contribute to the harmony of the group, of the social setting. If one person is out of bounds and out of control, and is screaming and shouting and talking incoherently, then everyone may go away, feeling the same way.
When you have feelings that your life is out of control, there truly is chaos. When you go away from a social setting without closure or resolution to chaos, then you walk away with chaos in your thinking. You are un-empowered. You, as an individual, and you collectively and as a group must empower yourself and must discuss what is socially acceptable power, giving rein for free expression without disturbing or causing disruption yourselves. Being “fair,” in other words.
It is not disrespectful to ask the person to step outside, to invite them in the company of one or two other people, to drive them home. To call someone who knows him or her better, to be there and to take them home or calm them. You have for so long, relied upon the fairness of individuals to hold your groups together. You will find that this exercise will be most helpful for you in the future, as more pressures in your society cause more people to become “unhinged” and to act out. This is fit for you?
Student: Yes, thank you. Very helpful.
RAYSON: You are welcome. Other questions, as we are open now for questions again? Thank you for this day, together.
(Group thanks Rayson.)
