May the peace of the Father fill your hearts. May the love of the enlightened brotherhood support you through all your days, in all your efforts to bring to this world a better understanding of universe principles.
Greetings children. I come here this evening as a guest, and would like to deliver a few words if it so pleases you. Not hearing any nay sayers, I will continue.
The light that is both shining down upon this world from on high, and shining out from this world through the efforts of those like yourselves creates a grand spectacle for those whose eyes are turned toward this blue world! This world that will one day be a gem within the Father's universe. All those who come to add their support are welcome. Many there are who are daily discovering their connection to the Father and this mission; many yet will still awaken at a later date. Understand that it matters not; commitments may be made on any number of levels, both conscious and unconscious. The greatest effort that you or any of the participants will make is, as you discussed this evening, in taking that first "leap of faith".
You have all been given many gifts, some that you recognize and utilize, and some that you yet have not discovered. One of the gifts that you have been given, that -all- on this world, will be given if they so request, is the gift of a personal teacher. So much growth and indeed service is yours as a result of utilizing this gift from the Father. This is not to say that were you to not accept the gift, that you could not continue to be a viable member of this mission in the Father's outreach, for each will participate according to the level that they are most comfortable, and all will not choose, nor should they, to work with personal teachers. Yet I say to you, that those who do, stand to gain much.
We would encourage each of you to accept the gifts that are so lovingly laid at your feet, and utilize them to the best of your ability, to grow and become who and what you were created to be. You will one day in your sometime future, be so light- filled that you will no longer have a visible body, as you now have. You are beginning the journey now of creating that light body, and with each and every kindness, with each and every time that you allow the Father to work through you, each and every time that you initiate service to your brothers and sisters, when you sing praises to the Father on high, when you open your hearts in worship, all of these things work together in concert to create the you that you are now becoming. Your teachers who work with you daily as they most certainly do, (oft times you are not aware), and yet they are there tirelessly working with you, feel so much joy at being a part of this growth, of this process in helping you to become who and what you were created to be.
You spoke this evening of understanding the need to add energy, to begin to push yourselves . . . someone mentioned beyond the comfort zone, and this is indeed, the path of the most progress. If you look back at your own progress, at any task you began to perform, when first it was new, it was uncomfortable, you were unsure of yourselves, and yet as you continued to work, and became better and better at the task, it became more and more comfortable. And this same scenario, applies, yet only in part, for when on a spiritual path, when you reach that point of being comfortable, therein, lies the difference, for in comfort, you begin to sit in a state of stasis. And in that state, very little is accomplished. It is not to say nothing is, but it is to say that very little is. And so when we reach this point of being comfortable, this is when you will eventually recognize yourselves, the need to push consciously out of that comfortable state and over into that more creative state of being, where there is activity and movement and progress.
I will not take up any more of your time this evening as I know the hour grows late, and this transmitter grows weary. I want to thank you for listening so attentively; for giving me the opportunity to visit your classroom, and to participate therein. I would ask you if it please you, over this next week to spend some time consciously opening your mind, and this can be done at any point in time. It can be done at your work place, in your leisure, shortly before going to bed, shortly after waking, whatever time is most comfortable for you, consciously visualize your mind in a state of expansion; push the perimeters outward, and see what happens. Go now in the grace of God. Shalom.
