ABRAHAM:  I am ABRAHAM. Greetings. I have wonderful memories of you three and our experiences together. I am appreciative of your flexibility over these years. You have, each in your own way, held this branch of our family tree together. I am always inspired when I see your easy transformation come about.

I have said that our meetings now were mostly supportive of putting your ministry into everyday living. The foundation for the Teaching Mission is set and each one of us will begin to build upon it. We really have no blueprint or diagram to follow. We have no idea of what our project will look like in the end.


ABRAHAM:    Instead of building our Teaching Mission brick by brick we are more allowing of an unfolding of creation. Will the bricks simply appear? No. It will take the good works of your ministry to build our Teaching Mission that will help one and all to enter into the age of Light and Life.

I realize your personal ministries are probably more educational for you than for those you minister to. A great deal of your ministry is about making others feel comfortable to be a child well within the Kingdom of God.

MARY:  I am MARY. Greetings. Once again, I am very happy to be included in this intimate meeting. I overheard your conversation earlier about learning to have tolerance for the changing individuals in the world today. I can see how you are practically buried with various issues in the media–same sex marriage, the economy, the government corruption–the list could go on and on.

I am happy to view you in your personal ministries, reaching deep within for truth beauty and goodness. I know at times you are screaming inside for some sort of relief or logic. Especially as we move into our later years, it is more likely we will become less tolerant. I am happy to say that those individuals who irritated me the most taught me so much about myself and how I can apply skills to move forward with a positive angle in any situation.

I know that I once believed that Andrew was so arrogant and I would avoid speaking with him because I was afraid I would say something damaging. It was strange how I ended up often face to face with him and almost feeling forced into having to deal with his personality.

However, I learned that Andrew’s arrogance was a form of self-protection. He did have a fear of being looked down upon and/or criticized. As a boy he experienced a great deal of pressure to become responsible. His parents leaned on him heavily and probably showed him a little less love than they did his brother.

In learning to understand Andrew, I learned about individuals various forms of self-protection and their frailties that place stumbling blocks in their lives. I learned to speak with people in a way that would make them feel comfortable enough to open up and feel safe. They knew there was no judgment coming from me. I was there to listen and allow them to search for the very best in themselves.

The Master taught us about spending time with individuals to really get to know them, asking them questions and allowing them freedom to talk—even if they were completely self-absorbed, arrogant, boring, etc. Many facets of our ministry will not be fun and you will learn lessons in tolerance. You will see the world’s people constantly changing and you will wonder ‘where is God in all of this?’

You cannot blame people for being so off course. This is simply steps in evolution. We cannot allow our intolerance to cut off our possible ministry, like when I tried to avoid Andrew. I am so thankful for the Master giving me a reason to love and be tolerant, patient, peaceful and kind.

I believe you each have such charm and finesse. People enjoy your ability to be easy going and use humor appropriately. We keep in mind always how the Master ministered as He passed by. He loved to learn new things and was always fascinated by the mortal mind and how it worked with the Father’s plan.

What I am saying is we do not find an individual and make her or him our pet project—no. We are to empower individuals to find the best within themselves. We must be aware of becoming too attached, because then we are verging into ego territory and that can spoil our good works.

Last week when Abraham suggested taking good care of yourself, it keeps your energy levels full so you can have the ability for maintaining tolerance when others become so annoying or so obviously ego-led. Not every individual will be on your level of spiritual education, but to think of them as inferior also takes you down a notch and a lesson in humility will be forthcoming.

However, I am trusting in your ability to embrace diversity and minister to others just as Jesus did, with logic and very little personal attachment. Jesus simply loved people and wanted the best for them and knew that they have access to knowing what the best is. Some individuals simply need a kind heart to exhibit some faith, some knowledge that all things are possible.


MARY:  I have enjoyed our evening together. I am always told wonderful stories about the three of you. You, cheerful mainstays, are a nutrient to the well-being of your brother Abraham. He always says that. It has been an honor to get to know you and serve with you. I thank you for inviting us this evening. Know that we are with continuous love for you each. Go in peace. Until next time Shalom.
