ABRAHAM: I am ABRAHAM. Greetings. It is so uplifting to my spirit when we can meet. As you watch the children play you feel the love and joy that I feel when meeting with you. I am so grateful for our history. We have had many life’s occurrences that have taught us a great deal about how to move, live and have our being in Urantia’s current environment. I have always found the more I help others the more I am helped. It is customary in the corporate world for individuals struggling to make it to the top. Urantians do have a need to have some attention, some interaction and in this fast-pace world we find that some individuals are stepping on others to get that attention.
It was interesting to learn about the Master and His close relationship to the Father. He had not need to draw attention to Himself. He did not want the good news to be about Him, but about the relationship with the Universal Father and His Kingdom children. I know there is a lot of struggle to maintain everyday life. We have learned from the Master how your focus on Father helps all other things to fall into place. It is understandable for us watching you how negative sometimes interaction can be with others and I do also understand hurt feelings and that little spark of revenge that pops into the mind and I am happy that you have studied the Master’s life, and know just because others in the world you live in act like animals, does not bring out the animal in you.
When we are in good association with Father, then we are able to look upon others’ negative action as just a misunderstanding on their part, but we do what we do as believers. We keep showing the light. We keep light heartedness and hope. Through these years together I am with confidence to be witness to how you help others and spread the good news. As believers we need not allow the darkness to swallow the light. We are with knowing that the light is much more powerful. I am always with the understanding that you each need time to rest, play and find some moments of serenity. It is important that you spend some time each day focusing on the Father. Staying close to Him will help you shield yourself against negativity and not let your attitude be changed by the negative actions of others.
It is understandable that you feel anger from time to time, but it is also logical that you have been trained to know a higher road. When you are feeling defeated in life it is because of an absence of the Father in your life. So you can see how that close relationship with Father is a powerful tool to have in daily living. When the rains fall too hard, you are sheltered by His love, understanding and knowledge. Father helps us not to react in a negative fashion, but teach a better way. This reminds me of your so-called road-rage. Many individuals in machines, having not common courtesy, is really quite trivial and because others choose a more animalistic behavior does not affect us when we are close with the Spirit.
MARY: I am MARY. My spirit is also lightened by our gatherings. I do appreciate this evening’s lessen because I lived that self-protective negative animalistic behavior. It really became simply a social negative habit. I know that when I was treated poorly by others, I also treated others poorly. It took a great deal of time to change my mind, attitude and habit.
It is written that you can exchange your mind for the mind of Christ. I spent many hours speaking with my sisters about how Father gives us the gift of compassion and those that are negative live in their own hell and we can feel compassion and turn our minds towards what can we do to help the light grow. I know I spent many hours in my own thinking and remembering the poor treatment I received and from that I would be low in spirit and bad in attitude. It took real exercise of mind to exchange my mind for the mind of Christ. I still feel some anger and yet, I can look upon those events with compassion and understanding that sometimes people just don’t know any better.
It is necessary to make a commitment to the Master to have His understanding, His far-seeing ability. The time I had real understanding of this spiritual being, to have understanding, it indeed felt like a duck that water rolls right off and troubles are not [so crippling]. I know in my heart that this life is eternal and it is only the beginning. We will be learning for eternity. It is important to start your scaffolding with a sturdy foundation of faith.
MARY: I am understanding questions will be postponed. We are off to teach in other areas that have great need. We are so grateful you have committed yourselves to being mentors and good friends. You know that the light is more powerful than any negativity and we will always be there to help you. With that we shall take our leave. Know that our gratitude to you is endless and our love for you is so strong. Go in peace. Until next time, Shalom
