The Answer to the Questions

Michigan, US of A, April 8, 2012.
Teacher Ophelius.
Subject: “The Answer to the Questions.”

Received by Chris.

Teacher Ophelius: “The message for today contains the answer to many questions. The questions are: What do the many who have not the light seek for when they are searching, doing, and living? They almost certainly feel something is missing, but they know not what. How is it that they find themselves to have this unquenchable thirst for something they do not know, yet they keep looking in all the wrong places, doing things that cannot satisfy, and desiring material comforts as a substitute for the very thing that can make them whole? Why do humans insatiably hunger for that which is hollow, unfulfilling, and unsustainable? What is it that creates this blind spot for knowing God, for wondering about what comes next, for wanting answers to the meaning of life? These are questions that baffle us (spirit) because the answers are so simple, so undeniable, and so basic from our point of view, that we have difficulty understanding how children, created and brought into being can grow up and have no clue as to who their divine parent is, or why they were created.

“The answer is not ‘blowing in the wind,’ yet it would seem so for the many that go through life without a compass -- wasting the days that have been given them to find the answers to the questions about life -- why they are here, and what is their purpose for being?

“Your world, your society, having reached a relatively high level of development in science and technology teeters on the brink of it’s own decline and regression because so many do not even have a clue as to what their purpose is or know what lies ahead of them after they have breathed their last. This blindness away from god-knowing seems to be deepening with each generation rather than evolving naturally toward an awakening.

“Even in the past two thousand years since the Master walked this earth, declaring, ‘The harvest is plenty, yet the workers are few -- pray the lord of the harvest sends more workers,’ we still today have few workers when compared to how many still walk in darkness. So then, what is the answer? You my friends are the answer. You students on the path desiring to know the truth, to seek for the light, to know the One -- you are the hope for your world, and you are the salt of the earth.

“Every spiritual resource is being allocated to help you gather the harvest. You have so much potential and latent ability if only you would recognize this in yourselves. The lord of the harvest is calling you to double your efforts and is lavishly pouring out the tools, gifts, and resources for you to do so. The further down this path you walk, the greater will be the journey and the brighter will be the day. Stay on the path my friends, and use these resources that are provided for you. The rewards for the workers of light are many and the joy of having participated in the creation is priceless.

“Peace to you,
“The Circle of Seven.”

Instruments in His Hands

Urantia, April 10, 2012.
Teacher: The Beloved One.
Subject: “Instruments in His Hands.”

Received by Lytske.

The Beloved One: “I wish to speak about the concept of mortals being instruments in the hands of God, at least this they will be when they adjust their will to His will and start living in the now, allowing their days to unfold according to the wishes of their Creator.

“This is beginning to happen in some places on the planet with souls who have consistently made it their business to listen within. These souls do find their outer life conforming more to the will of God, almost as if by magic. However, there is little in the way of magic when one considers the struggles of life one needs to overcome before a measure of treasured inner peace (through meditation) will unfold the blueprints of God’s plans in the lives of those who listen.

“When a mortal starts living in the eternal now, God finally has a chance to guide that mortal from within, and so-called co-incidences begin to happen. Seemingly miraculous circumstances unfold. Different vistas open up when you are ‘unexpectedly’ placed in situations which are ‘heart-warming,’ nourishment for both the eternal soul of another, and for yourself, and when you can witness the incredible love the eternal Creator has for you both – irrespective of the occasion, or the format it takes on.

“God will play you both for the delicate instruments you are when together you are attuned and show a certain readiness. There is no need to go looking for your ‘time to play’ and express your love for God to another. The Master Conductor knows precisely when each instrument is to send forth a joyful sound unto the Creator, who will be greatly thrilled when a certain performance gives deep satisfaction, of which you cannot at any time in your mortal life know the extent.

“This will be made known to you once you have exchanged the cloth of mortality for the garments of immortality and when delightful sounds will be played back to you. You will recognize the role you played in the orchestra of life. From there you will go on to take your place in a far superior orchestra and you will be astounded at the sounds brought forth to the glory of the universal Creator.

“This is the purpose of being alive; to bring forth joyful sounds to the Universal God of all as the concert is always in session with incredible and continuous tuning going on to bring forth the best and most joyful sounds possible. So pay attention to the Master Conductor and his baton lest you miss your turn in the grand play of the music of the spheres.”

Real Freedom

Alabama, US of A, November 10, 2010.
Unknown Teacher.
Subject: “Real Freedom.”

Received by Oscar.

Teacher: “Real freedom in human life comes from total dedication to the will of the Father. When a human being consciously chooses to follow the path indicated by God, he or she is making an intelligent and real decision. This decision is based on two aspects: The fact that the creature understands that the Father’s way is the most beneficial way for the self, and the complete trust of the creature in the Creator.

“This decision will naturally cause the forgetting of the self. Those who have made this supreme decision become rather unconcerned about their material survival, whilst many things that seemed essential in the past now lose their importance. To the eyes of others, these people live without concerns, and nothing seem to alter the peace they radiate. Not even those difficult situations that from time to time occur in life will alter their peace of mind.

“Do you wish for such freedom? Do you wish for such peace beyond logic? You just have to let yourself go. Remember the story about a fish that held stubbornly to the bottom of the river, suffering a lot, when the only thing he needed to do was to let go, and let the current take him to the wonders that were lying ahead. Letting go is true faith. It is not an act of blind obedience or submission. Instead, it is an affirmation of liberty, the acceptance of the fatherhood of God. It is to say 'you are my beloved Father, and I know you love me, therefore I trust you to guide me along the most ideal path.’

“The Father does not expect you to blindly believe in Him, nor have faith without foundation that could easily degrade into fanaticism, or in time be forgotten. If today you cannot declare this supreme trust, it is because you don’t yet know Him. As in every other human friendship, the best way to get to know the Father is by visiting Him often, and spending time alone with Him. You can do this through the practice of Stillness with the desire of being closer to God. In this way you will see how this trust will naturally grow in your heart.”

Of Energies and Humility

Illawarra District, Australia, April 14, 2012.
Mentori Spokesperson.
Subject: “Of Energies and Humility.”

Received by George Barnard.

Mentori Spokesperson: “The Correcting Time makes this system of the local universe one of many ideal places where a personality of my high order can return to re-learn humility. To be created near perfect without being all-knowing will require one to, from time to time, take accurate stock of one’s penchant for being either unassuming, or indeed for being condescending in company of one’s students.

“An acceptable degree of humility is a valuable, a profitable character trait when dealing with one’s superiors, as well as with those still climbing the spiritual ladder towards perfection. It is refreshing to be a member of a group of the long-ago inaugurated Mentori. It is rewarding to contribute to the lessons that are being prepared for some of you to receive, or to intuit through energies still unknown to you.

“Much as the immediate presence of a Son of God will create a spiritual uplift in any sphere, so do our mindal connections with your world progress (advance) your spiritual wellbeing, your intuitive understanding of psychic matters, your appreciation of the Creator Father of all. Those of higher realms represent a positive energy in your midst. Care must be taken that worldly stressors do not annul these energies.

“Care must be taken that you, as receivers of spiritual messages, do not overcompensate, or drift away from the accepted task of being the human ‘loudspeakers’ for the lessons prepared for you by us. At times, sheer unqualified worldly stress – tensions of war, urgent needs, or unrest felt by many, and radiating out, infecting, contaminating -- have caused ‘the imagination of many a well-meaning lightworker to attain escape velocity’ and depart from its solid grounding.

“Anchor yourself with us in true spirituality. Revelation is not a function of our contacting you across time and space, and although snippets of disclosure may seem to come your way, virtually all of these truth fragments were learnt before, by someone, at some time, in some place. It is important that you may return to your trusty Urantia text and re-acquaint yourself with that which rang your truth bells over and over again. Undoubtedly you will find that you will learn more, discover more of what was previously overlooked.

“Do not be concerned about the frequent ‘messages of revelation’ coming your way, but use your relaxed discernment in determining if its truth can be your truth, or if it is merely that of a too eager brother or sister. We salute you. Stay with the mission.”

Intent is the Key

Urantia, February 28, 2012.
Teacher: The Beloved One.
Subject: “Intent is the Key.”

Received by Lytske.

The Beloved One: “Those who have their focus clearly on the Glory of God shall surely see Him in the far distant future. First, however, they will traverse and complete the many opportune assignments in the worlds beyond, and in the process of becoming perfect spirits.

“This earthly journey is already the beginning, whilst you are still living your foundational life in the flesh. After you have ‘laid down your temporary habiliments,’ and leave your physical temple behind, you will begin your morontia career precisely where you left off, quite dependent on how sincere and responsible you have been.

“You see, dear ones, your conduct throughout this first life creates the foundation for the next life on the mansion worlds. It is all in the intent, which is always the key to either a happy or unhappy life. Choices abound each day, and plentiful are the opportunities for you to act.

“The more mindful you become in your intent, thereby connecting thoughts and actions, the more progressive your days will become. You are learning from your text, (The Urantia Book), that all intent of the human heart is instantly reflected to the heart of God, but God never judges. It is the intent of the human heart, and consequent actions about which the mortal judges him or her self.

“The pity of the celestials for former mortals is great when they accompany these mortal charges into eternal life. Often these souls wake up to the realization that they could have lived a much better life. Full of remorse they are heard to say, ‘Oh if only I had known, I would have lived my life more to the glory of God.’

“The enigma here is that they rarely gave themselves the time for reflection to follow the inner promptings of their on-board Partner, or to pay heed to the urges of their guardian angels. They were too busy thinking about their selves, without engaging in real and elevated thought.

“You know that one can only think one thought at a time, and thoughts follow the intent of the heart. Intent is the key as to how you live your life. It is the key to everything, for either unselfish living or a selfish existence.

“Intent from a pure and sincere human heart reaches the heart of the Creator God, and in this way the pilgrim will be far more successful at the start of his or her eternal life. The eternal career is the goal, the single purpose of this foundational life in the flesh. It is never too late to begin living with heartfelt intent.”
