ABRAHAM: I am ABRAHAM. I am enjoying these peaceful surroundings. I can certainly appreciate the manner in which you work with one another. I am happy that you are comfortable with me. It makes my communications more accessible. I can feel a wonderful security here in our spiritual unification.
ABRAHAM: During this particular time of year our thoughts turn to our Mother Spirit. She usually imparts a message to us and this year has come with a wonderful message. Mother has helped us to feel compassion for the many souls out in existence that feel no family connection. She has instructed us to teach more skills on tightening the family ties.
As we grow in our spiritual understanding, we are getting to know the parental love of God. You would understand from experiencing a parental love. A parent loves us enough to tell us the truth. They would not worry about being nice or having some sort of self-reward, no. A good parent advises children for the sake of the children’s best interest, for their well-being. Mother’s message told us this year to love others, if possible, with a parental love. Meaning that you want for their health and happiness and have not worry over hurting feelings or crossing lines.
The Master was a wonderful example of this parental love. He loved His fellows enough to look them into the eyes and impart the truth as He saw it. He was not forceful in his manner with others, no. He was more of a caring friend who simply wanted to display assistance. We know that the Master wanted no part of any personal glory and He was not worried about His popularity. He was however concerned with His ministry and made the utmost effort to always be honest and loving, maybe not so much tactfulness, but always loving. His hearers who were on a path of real correction could absorb the Master’s words in all their reality. They were genuinely helped by the Master’s loving truth. Individuals who were more on an immature path or self-seeking took not the Master’s words as help, but condemnation.
People of the world are beginning to see that carrying past baggage or hurt is not helping one to make progress. This mindset at some point in Urantia’s awakening served a purpose, but now it simply creates victim-hood. You would do well to show that parental love within to your fellows who are looking for a new and better way. People are looking for acceptance and a place to belong. Your past training has helped you to know this parental love and now is the time to put it into action. I hope you are understanding me, because we are not teaching forcefulness but simple truth. Mother’s message this year showed each of us that we have grown in many ways and are finding out new priorities. What was once seemingly important will be transformed into new progressive thought. Everyone has a place at the Father’s table and gives and receives. This is a satisfying fact of our spiritual education.
ABRAHAM: This week make effort to have conversation with Mother and allow Her to further your understanding on the love of a parent and how to put it to use in the growth of the Mission. We are entirely blessed with the loving balanced personalities of our Mother and the Spirit of Truth. Truly understanding this blessing fills the soul. That is all. Mary will be with us next week and she sends her love. Know that I am always with great anticipation for observing your lives here on this evolving planet. Thank you for allowing me in. Go in peace. Until next week, shalom.
