Teacher: Ham, Tomas
HAM: I am happy to be here with you today, my brethren. I am here to introduce to you a teacher in my Teacher Corps. I am Ham, and as many of you know, I hold a somewhat administrative post in this Teaching Mission. I have been instructed to oversee the placement of the various and many teachers who have come, having been trained to work with you in this Time of Correction.
Your group is well known to us and well loved. We have watched and beheld many wondrous growth steps transpire in your community among yourselves and indeed among the various teachers who have paved the way, for now a new teacher who will make his home among you for a period of time.
It is my finding that your mortal mind takes things literally, and so when I say “a period of time,” you may rest assured that this period of time will be substantial and adequate for many more growth steps on your part as individuals and as a community.
I will withhold my own lesson plan from you today in light of the opportunity to present to you an experienced teacher who has awaited this assignment and yet has not been merely waiting, but who has worked hard and diligently in preparation for the work which he delights to commence this day. I will come again and speak with you from time to time. I will always be aware of your growth and struggles. And now I will leave you in the capable hands of Teacher Tomas. Farewell.
Group: Thank you, Teacher Ham. Farewell.
TOMAS: Greetings, my new family. I am Tomas. I am your teacher, your guide, your companion, your friend, and the friend of those values and standards which you hold dear, which you embrace with your deep heart. The privilege, which I enjoy today in meeting with you in this formal fashion, is second to none. I shall not bore you with my credentials, as many of my learning processes have far preceded the induction of Correcting Time and, although it is my earnest desire to serve in this on-going mission, my most important work is spread before me today in your presence.
It is said – and you will know to refer to our primary text, the fifth epochal revelation, The Urantia Book – that the most important work is the work of our realm, and I identify you all as my realm of work and, as we become better acquainted and as I begin to observe, and as you begin to foster our lessons into your arena, then we will begin to see and feel the profound effects which can be and will be brought about as a result of our joint efforts in the cause of Michael of Nebadon.
We are quite gleeful today, in the spirit realm, as we also perceive your hearts are afire with gratitude and enthusiasm for the further realization of spirit reality in your realm, in your hearts, and in the lives of those you love and foster. I have, shall we say, read your dossier and have preceded my transmitter/receiver Gerdean in her journey eastward, that I might spend some time in silent observation of your energy pattern. I, however, will not embarrass anyone by revealing those things about you which I am privy to by the nature of my work, certainly not without your full cooperation and understanding of our joint purpose, for many lessons can be shared in the living experience.
Oftentimes I observe through you (and I have cherished this experience) and I am ever working towards enabling you to see through me, that is, through my vantage point. For as we share vantage points, as we share perceptions, as we evolve and expand our ability to see truth, beauty, and goodness from ever elevated and enlightened eyes, the illumination of The Father can clearly radiate through you and yours with more vigor and purity.
I have long sought this time with you and am greatly looking forward to the evolution and development of our relationship. I am admonished, however, to be careful not to bring overmuch conditioning with me from my earlier assignments lest I disallow the uniqueness of this particular configuration, and this configuration of personalities is, yes, the work of my realm today.
And so, my siblings-in-ascension, we will begin together, and although I am your teacher, it is ever so that the teacher should also remain the student; therefore, as we go along, you will teach me as I teach you. Never fear me. Always feel free to engage me in conversation. It is always a delightful challenge when teachers are asked questions (and I will have further remarks in time regarding the art of asking questions), but do not hesitate to speak what is on your mind, no matter how far afield it may seem. And you will all abide by the graciousness of Our Master and suffer one another’s innocence in seeking truth. Much will be revealed as, as you reveal your true self to me, to others, and of course to yourself, more room is made in your soul for further acknowledgement of your true reality.
My precious associates, I am here and at your beck and call. Call upon me in your private meditations. I will greet you in the stillness. I am quite liberal in making house calls, if you will, and also be advised that we extend beyond the primary group here to include your family and friends for whom you pray and devote spiritual energy toward. This Correcting Time network is unlimited in its potential and fairly unrestricted in its actuality, for we begin at the beginning, which always is this moment.
Perhaps one or others of you would like to introduce yourself to me and begin our repartee.
