Elyon (Jonathan TR): This is your friend Elyon. Being among my fellows is a supreme delight; it is such fellowship reflective of becoming glory in the full awakening of the Supreme Being our united communion. You are continually reminded of stillness as an effective means for increased sensitivity to divine presence, as well as its effectiveness in coping with issues in your life, and the rest it engenders for the soul simply to be collected and to be reflective. Practicing stillness may be likened to the balancing of wheel and tire on a static bubble scale. Drawing into silence brings a calmness wherein you sense your accomplishments and your needs and, through prayer, place the counterweights of divine grace to bring you as a personality into a balance that will increase the effectiveness of your service to your fellows. I know, as I have witnessed that you all live active lives, and stillness becomes a moment treasured and sought for but often neglected. Never once entertain the thought that this disappoints Father. To Father all activity and the quiet of stillness are one and the same. If Father abhorred activity He would not dwell within you. Grace is abundant and to be applied while active. It is present to bring balance when engaged, when in motion.
Doing the Father's will may be likened to dynamic spin balancing of wheel and tire. When in service, when merely fulfilling your temporal responsibilities, it is revealed where the inner spirit may add the counterweight of divine illumination that will bring you to balance and to effective function. All you need to do is to be alert when the signal is given that centering is needed and to cooperate and to allow for the adjustment even while in motion. To you, while yet in physical form, the retreat into silence is very beneficial, yet your opportunities must be sought after. Upon your emergence into the realms of the morontia state you will find a culture far more conducive to such reflection and communion.
Train yourselves while yet busy creatures to rest in that eye of calmness at the center of your multitude of activities. That is for you on the level you indwell the portal to the morontia state. The grace of God is given when the need arises, ever willingly bestowed, compassionate in its timing, holy in its sincerity. Trust and accept the counter balance of spirit; all too often does the human creature feel obligated to compensate for disability. You need not burden yourself with such effort and strain. Function as you are in your wobble, in your bounces. The hand of God will be there to stabilize, to correct, to adjust. In this action you come to the realization of a cosmic centering. Each episode wherein you experience this centering you gain a deeper connection to your divine root; you acquire a stability that transcends all storms. It is all you need to do: acceptance, receptivity, trust.
Balance is not your act alone but your act in partnership with God's inner presence. I offer these words for reflection. Thank you for listening.
Tom: Could someone speak to the role intention and desire have versus expectation as regards healing?
Jessona: I will address your question. This is Jessona offering a response. Intention let us describe as the effort to engage in the divine outworking playing in your life. It is your willingness to become part of the will of the Father as it is activated in the drama of your days. It is the sensitivity of your mind to your own dreams and the realities of your world that constrain or allow in the parameters of the Father's will, as the divine Parent wisely guides you into your future. Expectation is the effort of self to condition realities about you, be it the Father's will, be it worldly constraints and opportunities. You are attempting through expectation to redefine all outside of self. Intention is an act of harmony, of integration. Expectation is an act of demand and compliance to one's own view. I hope this assists you. Further note: Expectation offers the self a divorcement from personal responsibility, requires all else to act and conform. Intention is the acceptance of one's responsibility to place talents to work and to discern the best avenues for engagement. It is an ownership rather than a demand.
Solonia (Daniel): I would add one line to my sister's explanation. Intention is the will to discover God's will. Expectation is the attempt to manipulate it, to define it.
Tom: How do desire and intention vary?
Solonia: They are not really at variance. They are a partnership. Your desire, when it is to be part of the unfolding of the will of the Father, helps to stimulate your intention and prod your motion. They truly work hand in hand together. Desire, on the other hand, may be manipulated by the human ego to create expectation as well. It is the force which you may allow your soul to use in your intentions or your ego to use in your expectations. Does this serve?
Tom: Yes, thank you.
Nebadonia (Mark): I would warmly greet you, my dear ones. In fact, I warmly embrace you. Each hour, each minute, of your lives I am she who sustains your life and looks upon each one of you with such great love and fondness and caring. After your morning discussion of my attributes and nature, I am inclined to come among you so that you may have a greater sense of my presence in your lives, in your hearts, in your appreciation. As you make your gratitude known to our Creator it finds its way to me as well. I desire that you never encounter a feeling of having overlooked me in your lives, because indeed I am nurturing you always. I am not apart from you, and in your own ways each one of you is nuzzled to me and is as close as is possible given your senses at this time. I welcome your appreciation of my aspect of your being, and I look forward to the development of this relationship between us as you mature. Right now you are but developing babes, and I surround you and nurture you that you may mature to the point of distinguishing yourself as a separate and whole being. But for now you require my assistance for your very presence, and I most willingly provide you with this nourishment for your life. I am pleased that the child desires to know the mother as well as the father. This brings me great joy and great anticipation for the relationship we most certainly will develop as you transcend from the babe in the realm of spirit to a toddler, to an adolescent, and finally to an adult where your Father and myself will embrace you in the full grace and glory of what you have become. We accept your love and your adoration, and we envelop you with our love and adoration. Truly we are a happy universe family. As you grow and as we get to know each other, each of you as individuals and all of you members of our family, certainly our experience of this relationship will grow as will our deep abiding affection.
For now you must act in faith that your Father and I watch over you. With a certainty, with absolute conviction, you must proceed on your career of ascension that we are supportive of you. We are proud of the accomplishments that you make, each one. We will not forsake a single child; all will get our attention. You each one can look forward to many, many fond embraces of spirit; as you fall down and need our love we will be there for you. As you succeed in your accomplishments and are filled with joy, we will share that with you as well. We are vowed to be with you every step of your growth and see you become a mature spiritual adult. It is as simple for you as one foot in front of the other and as magnificent for us as a miracle unfolding. I adore each one of you. I am so close to you, you cannot separate yourself from me at this time. Let this be your comfort that you can never be without me in your lives; it is not possible. You may seek for the approach of your Father, but your Mother envelops you already. Therefore I remain with you, and I seek your affection as you seek mine. I offer my affection as you offer yours. Together we will and do share a fond mutual embrace.
I take my leave now, but as I have just stated, I never separate from you. I only withdraw to allow you a more complete experience. I withdraw now.
