Aaron : “Greetings, my friends. This is Aaron. It is my pleasure to be connected to this fellow once again, as we have not communicated so directly of late. I would make commentary regarding your recent involvement with guests and friends, the intermixing of spiritual potential at the gathering recently on the mountain where in varying degrees you recognized the lacing of diversity into a united thread. As you interact with one another I am recognizing some steps of growth that I have witnessed in some of you, for the divergent views are less stress producing and replaced through the recognition of your commonality of purpose, this so recently strengthened by your involvement at this conference, for those of you who attended.
The familial nature of your relations to each other has actually enabled us to proceed in new directions, for without this increasing realization we are limited in how we can converse with you. Profound realizations are waiting for your attendance to them and some of these processes will engender fear and stress, while others will you ease into with a deep sense of joy. We have the understanding that you are prepared to enter into some of these experimental efforts due to the state you now find yourselves, for the differences no longer have the great capability to outweigh your unity and your love for one another.
Tonight I would offer the first experiment or perhaps project for you to ponder upon. These will be group decisions and we will aid in the facilitation of your conversations and efforts with one another to understand the various exercises. Each of you has grown to a place where you are willing to serve God’s will as you see it in your life. You each love and value this family that you have here, and yes, you each love and value the larger human family as it is present across this globe. To recognize a greater sense of brotherhood, of familial relations with one another, we would ask you to contemplate formulating a two-fold project, or should I say, projects.
The first project is to be one that recognizes in some manner your relationship to each other that somehow serves the group that serves you as a family unit. And the second project I would have you contemplate to undertake as a group is some effort that you have not yet undertaken, that somehow manifests your desire to be of service to your fellow mankind. Inwardly and outwardly are we speaking here; and we would enjoy it if you would discuss amongst yourselves the idea of doing some project of service both to recognize your unity and to enter into a service nature with Humanity. And this discussion would be favorable in our eyes for you to have with one another. At this time, Minearisa will take a moment to converse with you. I will remain here this evening and will gladly enter into discussion with you, as well as our other friends. Thank you.”
Minearisa (Bill): “My dear friends, my stunningly successful students, my children of mortal frame, I, Minearisa, embrace you with my love. And as you feel my arms around you, you are aware that the whole universe, the whole loving universe of God’s doing, is a part of that hug that I give you. My, you have been diligent pupils! Your sharing, although different than your usual format, embraced a range of concerns, a depth of honesty, sincerity of heart, and usefulness rarely seen on this planet.
You are aware, as you discussed it, of your progress at all levels physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual. You are demonstrating the balance that we have talked about frequently, for as your personality integrates the aspects of your being, you are increasingly coming into a balance which is perfectly poised. We have indeed gazed upon you with much fondness and much admiration. You truly know the meaning of love; and this is a family such as few have ever experienced. It is in fact the experience of light and life that you are privileged by your own hard work and decisions to share with each other. Beyond the individual growth of each of you, lies the growth of the Supreme, of the God of experience who embraces all finite reality.
You are beginning to understand that the universe is broader than yourself. Your self needs are being fully satisfied so that you can place yourself with trust and with joy in the matrix of a family group here in this room, yes, but broader by far as you are increasingly beginning to understand. This was the hope of we Supernals, that true family, the living experience of brotherhood and sisterhood, would be possible. And as you can testify to, it is here. It is not just in this room among you people, it is happening all over Urantia.
Indeed, is the Teaching Mission an effort far beyond the borders of those that you recognize as part of that experience. Despite the black that is amplified and dwelt upon by the death throes of the age of materialism, despite this focus on the black, it is true that the white background is far greater. You know this in your minds, and you are beginning to know it in your lives. Know it not merely at the level of words, but as a very part of your being.
In all of these encouraging remarks, my friends it is our intention to fully allow you to do that which you can do for yourselves. Make those decisions. Learn from your experiences. Accept responsibility for your choices. Experience the wonder of choosing joy in place of sorrow, courage in place of compromise, work in the place of idleness, faith in the place of fear.
Tonight “you” were the lesson. This was not what we had planned, but this is what we have fully agreed is appropriate. I have spoken sufficient words. It is my delight to observe truth gaining in reality in each of you.
My peace, my love. Good evening.”
