ABRAHAM: I am ABRAHAM. Greetings. Our time together has become very precious to me. I am so inspired by your enthusiasm when you gather together. I feel re-energized meeting with you. Over the last few weeks we have been extremely busy and to come back here to you is rest for our souls. We thank you.
ABRAHAM: There is so much activity taking place all over the world and changes are happening. These changes are good but will not come easy. Hard work and patience will be the key to a world that is truly free. I am seeing many mortals who are somewhat lost and have forgotten the joy in life. Many of these mortals forget to include Father, the Master and Mother into daily living. Without them we tend to overlook the value life has to offer. In losing this value we feel we are losing our purpose to keep striving.
I am also intrigued by the fact that atheism is a growing movement. Many individuals have been soured by religion and have thrown out the baby with the bath water. This movement will be short-lived; however you can help by being an example of the Master’s life.
MARY: I am MARY and am so grateful to be with you again. It is strange that in various parts of the world there is so much unrest and believe it or not, we find peace when we can come to see you. I can understand Abraham’s words this evening. I know during my time in the flesh I had seemingly come to a spiritual stalemate. My overall commitment was to the Master and sharing the good news, but day after day and all the chores we needed to do, our spiritual life became a lower priority. Our minds became about accomplishments and completing tasks.
At times in our spiritual education we tend to arrive at some point in our thinking that we know all there is to know; we know what to expect in life and the adventures are over. I can say that during these times in my earthly life I would experience extreme agitation and did not set a very good example of one who had known the Master. Hardships became harder. Hopelessness grew beyond my control. I had felt completely overwhelmed and so alone. It was a terrible downward spiral.
In this darkness it was almost by accident that I parted the curtain, so to speak, and allowed the light to come in. I knew that Father understood my plight and still I did not know what steps I should be taking. There was an understanding then that I needed to completely surrender and give my burden to the Father. My understanding was that Father had always been there for me. My life was so much improved with Father in it. My burdens were lighter when Father was included in my life. I felt not that loneliness that is harmful to the mortal life. Father gave us one another for a reason and it matters not if you are blood related to others. It is important that we reach out. It is important that we socialize, have conversation, and bounce ideas off of one another.
To have healthy relationships in your mortal life reminds you of the value to be had. You are reminded of why you work so hard. We work not just to feel tired and burdened, no. We work for the joy that is to be found in this life. You have not found out all there is to know in this life and with every advancement there are new phases to learn and new different communication from the Thought Adjuster. Different, meaning on your path you learned of a concept, but with the advanced Thought Adjuster communication the concept becomes enlarged and there is much more understanding to be had.
You have heard the term “God can move mountains,” and I would recommend that you incorporate this understanding into the practice of your faith. When your vision, attitude, or understanding is stuck then are you less likely to have faith that Father can move these mountains. It is very important to stay observant and open-minded. As the world grows and changes we will need to keep updated as Teaching Mission participants, so we can help others to expand in their faith.
This week Abraham and I are recommending that you reinforce your social network. Make time to dissect the areas of your faith and see if there is time to enjoy what you work so hard for. You each know it is acceptable for others to have various faiths or religious understandings. We are not here to change anyone, but are just here to live our lives like we know the Master. Remember His happy countenance. He did indeed work hard and delegate tasks, but He also knew when it was time to take a break, be with Father, or be with family and friends.
MARY: That is all for this evening. Know that Abraham and I are growing with much love for you each. Please know of our appreciation of your welcoming arms and helping us to feel serenity so we can go back to or work. Our love goes with you. Until next time, Shalom.
