I am ABRAHAM. Greetings. Of all the issues discussed here this evening, I am glad you have been able to set them aside for a time so we can get down to the business of spirit. It is grounding to have the group to bounce ideas off of. It is healthy to have a well-balanced discussion that involves common sense and humor. As we ponder the benefits of being involved in this group, we can see how the mortal life is filled with a series of such groups.

I have found it a blessing to be surrounded by supportive friends who would always be honest with me–loving and honest. You would never let a loved one continually trip over a mistake. You would do what you could to give help. I find that you each help in a balanced way as far as this group goes. In personal life however, we tend to be a bit more emotional.


Last week Mary made comment to the fact that we will get to more understanding on basic issues in everyday life. I believe those relationships that are close and personal are sometimes the hardest lessons to learn. Back in my mortal day I had always worried about the pain of loss. While I acted as if it was in my loved ones own best interest to use caution, it would really be in my own to not have to bear the pain of loss.

Parents always have these temptations that they could use fear into scaring their children to being wise about any situation. The child mostly learns to remember the fear. I used fear to control my loved ones so that they would somehow keep their focus before them. I did not want to show real love because in my mind that meant weakness. To control was more masculine to me. Love was breeding weakness and in those days I could not afford to be known as weak. How blessed are we that the Master did not have that same view.

No one who was ever loved by the Master would ever say He was weak. Those that could not or would not receive His love, made Him up in their minds to look inferior. Because the Master did not show great emotion, some mistook Him for cold. The Master had plenty of human emotion. It was just not on parade. His closeness to Father helped Him to harness the energy of emotion and put it toward actions He could take.

Jesus was not beaten down by His emotions or the pain inflicted upon Him by others. He always made His best effort in all things and would leave the results to Father. This freed up His thinking to keep going about the ministry. He was not bogged down by emotion that would have Him seek escape or have temptation to throw in the towel, so to speak. His thinking was clear and dwelt not upon hurt feelings.

Many new generations still find hate in their heart for Judas Iscariot and have more emotion than Jesus ever did about that situation. The Master could love deeply and yet, not make love about emotions. He trusted in Father to provide detailed guidance. He depended on this guidance to lead Him to the next task. The Master knew His time here was short and had not a moment to waste being petty or hurt. He had to keep a clear head about Him. Cry when it was time to and then move on.


This week Mary and I are asking you to see how you can love without holding back. Is love a weakness or strength? How does emotion bog down your thinking? What are those activities you can do to keep you connected to the Father? Our lesson is kept short again this week. We will assess your experience for the week next time and move our lessons from that. Know that our love is ever growing for you each. Until next time, shalom.
