ABRAHAM: I am Abraham. Greetings. I am always in appreciation of these smaller, more intimate groups, because I get to know each of you on a more personal level. I am grateful to hear your views on the world’s issues and how they can drown the mind with meaninglessness. I enjoy your deep thinking efforts to also discuss various solutions. I personally believe there are a lot of good intentions out there in the world, some perhaps are self-serving, but yes, a lot of good intentions.
ABRAHAM: I am finding that in the confusion of mortal living, many individuals will throw their hands up and declare defeat. In the fast paced world some people have a difficult time finding a sure footed path. There are many times in mortal life when one must simply wipe the slate clean and begin again, simply start over. Living with regret is not helping to clean the slate, so the point of throwing up ones hands in what seems to be self-defeat is actually good, humbling indeed.
We can take the lessons of the past and sit them on a shelf in our minds and pull them out to review from time to time. These lessons are meanings that have helped you to advance as a mortal and a child of God. This evening however, we are speaking of a type of mindal and spirit cleansing, a cleaning of the souls’ slate. If one is to hang onto guilt and regret, it is going to be difficult to find hope enough to have a clean slate and the new possibilities of starting over and I mean starting over with something new and better.
In this world there is so much assistance that hopelessness has no place, meaningful humility, yes, self-defeat, no. Do not go back through your life and wish you could change this or that. Know that you are a budding soul and have all the opportunities before you. The Son gives you light, the Mother gives you the wisdom to survive and the Father gives you the power to thrive. In Father’s kingdom you always get another chance to begin again, to see that white slate before you and add new meanings from personal experience, which help the growing soul to advance.
You are not your money. You are not your education. You are not your job, nor are you somebody’s wife, husband, sister, brother. You are Father’s child with all of life’s opportunities before you. Do not become lost in the world of ‘if only I had this,’ ‘if only I were this’. Take your blank slate this week and add those meanings and values that happen throughout your experiences.
You can have your lessons on the side that are like a treasure trove that will always be there. It will always be of assistance. Set your regret and guilt off to the side and allow it to create enough humility that you can throw your hands in the air and say to the Father, I am ready for the new and better ways.
ABRAHAM: Mary can’t be with us this evening but sends her regards and will return next week. That is all for this evenings lesson. See what you can do with your blank slate this week. Know that I am always available, should you call upon me. I cherish our time together and send you forth with all my love. Go in peace. Until next time, shalom.
