HAM: Greetings my friends, my fellow students. This is your teacher you know well; this is Ham. How happy I am to be with you.
HAM: I have greeted you as fellow students, and yes, you know me as your teacher, even as an administrator of many teachers, but I would ask you to remember our lessons which we explored together. Their purpose was to train you as teachers. And how do we teach? We teach as we live. We speak as we our able. In the openings we are given by all those we know. We cultivate additional opportunities in every exchange seeking to extend the domain of love whose source is our Father.
Many are here observing. Each of you have grown more than you know, and while you may have missed our regular sessions, I know you have attended to the many lessons supplied to you in your own experience. This is always the master of all teachers. If our Creator Son would regard living experience as his teacher, then surely all of us can recognize its value.
We are gathered here with much anticipation. I have enjoyed witnessing your conversations. You demonstrate a maturity we are endeavoring to foster throughout this world, knowing full-well your natural propensities while checking these against your own guidance, coupled with the knowledge you have gained from your studies in your text, in our lessons, and in the world at large.
Yes, we will witness a great lesson in this coming time, this time that is upon us now. For in this moment, as in the many moments of the Master’s walk, the kingdom of heaven is at hand, the kingdom coming in great power is at hand, and you need look no further than your own lives for the proof of this statement. It is your lives that are showing us and the world the readiness, the preparation that has been well made to receive infusions of Light and Life upon this world in such desperate need. And so, again I greet you and recognize that we have become joined together as fellow students in this work of teaching the truth of who we are, beloved of the First Source of all things, living extensions of this light.
There are many here to magnify this light. I would encourage you to recognize that this light you bear will only grow as you receive these larger infusions. Those things you may find around you that bear witness to these infusions are coming forth from within you. And as you have walked quite a ways with us, we are ready now to walk further but working as peers more than as your previous status as newly…as new students of those that you were inclined to regard with great awe and with mystery, mystification.
The paths you have walked since then have made you more able to stand on your own, knowing you are fully supported in this larger task of the reclamation of this world. The truth is eternal, the moments of its manifestation are unique each unto themselves. Each of you with opportunities designed to engage your heart’s desire and your greatest capacity for service. Doubt not the preparation you have received. Be emboldened knowing that I stand with you. I have never left you, but I would encourage you still further, to draw upon the source of my own learning. For I have told you, someday you may surpass me.
Yes, I have traveled far but I am honored to be part of this Teaching Mission with souls such as you are. Little do you know the influence you wield. And though you are not recognized in the larger arena of a mass audience, whose attention is focused upon the spectacles of entertainment. No, you entertain the source of all teachers, the source of truth within your hearts. Within your minds, you attend to the illumination of your Indwelling Spirit. In this time when many are looking around to find in the external world a confirmation of this that you hold within you.
Stand fast in what you know to be true. The father works in and through his children, even as such as you are. How many times have we said, you are our hands and feet upon the soil of this world. Be prepared to receive these larger infusions of light deep in you being. The kingdom is within. It always has, it always will be. The time for public celebration is well ahead of us. You are forging a way for many to come after you. Yes, and those from on high, greater than I, Paradise personalities who have yet to be known, yet to be introduced to many here. You await a great revelation; your promised Son with his staff.
You have many questions about these and rightfully you wonder. I remind you to take this wonder to Father within. Share your questions here in this place of divine illumination and your questions will become a source of enlightenment for many. My friends, do you have questions for me?
Question: I have a question Ham. First off how are you? And second…how best do we engage the reality as it is with the expectation of brighter and lighter days ahead. How do we approach these days and find the best place of peace and joy in them just by even, without the need or expectation for outside influence?
HAM:: Thank you. Of course I am well, witnessing as I have your growth. Nothing is more gratifying to a teacher than to witness their students coming of age, becoming a peer. Your progress makes my heart swell with joy, and while we may have felt as if there was a distance, it was only to demonstrate how these connections we have built will span the distance of the universe of universes. And so you ask how shall conduct yourself, compose yourself in the face of so much expectation and so much turbulence as Urantia makes its transit from darkness to light.
You may be startled to find that what you witness unfolding around you is the marvel that you have held within you. You have felt at times alone in this. You have felt isolated for your world itself has suffered such. Be prepared to discover that this joy you hold at your greatest depth spring(ing) up in this world in places you have not considered, that will surprise you. So, my son, prepare yourself to be surprised by joy.
Your world suffers seemingly in this moment. It may writhe in pain, but it is the pain of birth. You know well the beauty of children. You know well the labor of birth. Have compassion on those who exhibit hysteria, fear, discomfort and pain. Comfort them as you would (the) mother of your children, the mother of any child giving birth. Look with compassion on those who are confused, for you know well how such confusion can feel. You wonder why for so many years you have been exposed to uncertainty with regard to the manifestation of the support of a great universe that surrounds you.
You have become part of this support. Your life is inseparable from ours. That I remain unseen poses no distance to you. Our love easily reaches across this apparent barrier. And if we can do this, how much easier will it be for you to reach across the barriers of behaviors that are unsettling, that are exhibited by our siblings, whose faith may not enable them to be at peace in the midst of this storm.
Question: Greetings Ham, it’s good to be with you again. Many years ago, I requested a task that I could perform in service to the mission, and Christ Michael, and the spiritual hierarchy. and I would ask for another instruction or suggestion of something that I can uniquely offer in service. Thank you.
HAM:: My son, you and your friends, many here have been endowed with gifts of expression. You have written songs that have moved the world. Though it might appear to you that the entire world is not applauding at your front door. But you have found support and you have found recognition. I would say to you, build upon this that you have already done. Extend the range of your voice in the manner that you think best, and do not disregard those you have counseled and encouraged as I have encouraged you. You can be a teacher of those who compose these songs.
You can magnify your voice through those you teach, through those you encourage, just as I have encouraged you. So, my counsel is simply continue, but recognize that you can incorporate this gift that you will continue to exercise and demonstrate, but your influence will be multiplied as you recognize those that you mentor, those that you encourage, who are young and intimidated and frightened, unsure of how to proceed, just as you once were yourself. In this you fulfill the cycle of human experience, and you begin to realize the ascension process. Already you’re growing in this way. Is this of any help to you? Yes, thank you so much.
HAM:: I would say to these assembled and those of my friends, your friends, who are not here whose hearts are attuned to this moment, give yourselves the opportunity to explore together. Do not keep yourselves hidden from one another. Together you do many things that you cannot do alone. There’s great opportunity here to build upon the foundation of the many years of our work together. I say this simply as a suggestion to foster what I know (is) your hearts’ desire to support one another in the work before us. Indeed I would say the many years we have behind us is but a step along the path of the great work we have before us, and how happy I am to have such capable colleagues enjoined in this Teaching Mission. Until we meet again, I say farewell.
