The Willingness to Change

Michigan, US of A, November 18, 2012.
Teacher Ophelius.
Subject: “The Willingness to Change.”

Received by Chris.

Teacher Ophelius: “The message for today is about the willingness to change. What do I mean by this? The willingness to change is the degree to which you allow the Indwelling Spirit to align the mind with higher values and meanings, thus creating a more direct channel for soul building, where opportunities for survival increase and the awareness of imperfection becomes apparent. This ‘willingness to change’ is the key to all success in life and progress in eternity, for without it, there is no movement and life stagnates and becomes meaningless. Embracing change brings opportunity, and opportunity provides the vehicle for discovering the true self and the untapped potential that lies hidden in every man, woman, and child.

“Have you ever struggled with some problem in life that seems to keep reoccurring – something that vexes the heart and mind and is constantly reminding you of the discomfort of resistance to change? This is an opportunity, my friend, to explore the possibilities of higher awareness – to subdue the ego and allow the Indwelling Spirit to teach you how to move one degree closer to godlike perfection.

“Can you think of a situation where you swallowed your pride and let go of malice and allowed forgiveness and mercy to soften the heart and heal the mind of some injury to the ego? This is faith at work – the allowance for change in the hope for greater understanding of the I AM – to reveal another layer of the mystery, which asks the question, ‘who am I?’ The willingness to change is the catalyst for all progress and growth and is the individual’s ultimate procurement of free will.

“Humans were created imperfect by design to allow for a greater depth of experience, moving from imperfection to Godlike perfection. Being the children of the Creator, all share those experiences with the Supreme Being, the God of experience. Your willingness to change, to move away from selfishness and separation, and toward perfection and unity, provides the depth of experience for the Supreme Being to explore Himself (the Universal Father) and to answer the question for all beings in the creation, ‘who am I?’

“Your contribution to this exploration of the Ultimate and Absolute Self is priceless and valued above all and so you are divinely loved by the Creator and shown the way to perfection as willingly as you allow for change – to move from one state of awareness to another. Those that are slow to progress, or those that fail to survive, are those that use their free will to solidify error and to maintain separation by refusing to exercise their will to change – maintaining present awareness and rejecting all opportunities for change.

“View life from every angle, my friends, and explore all possibilities as does the Creator, for this is how you become God-like and move accordingly with the divine plan as one organism. When you choose willingly to change, you become a participant in the creation of the time-space universes and you will therefore share in the divine joy of discovering the I AM.

“Peace to all,
“The Circle of Seven.”

Do not fear for your future

Alabama, US of A, November 20, 2012.
Thought Adjuster.
Subject: “Do not fear for your future.”

Received by Oscar.

Thought Adjuster: “The numerous esoteric beliefs, which every so often show their face among you, are just a sign of the spiritual immaturity still prevalent on this world. Many hear the good news of the kingdom but let themselves be led astray by the appearances of the material world. They are the ones who build on inadequate foundations and see their buildings crumble when the winds of adversity blow over them.

“What can we do to bring them back to reality? Truth never hides and it doesn’t need promoters to convince those who don’t believe. What is true simply exists and what is untrue does not exist. Perhaps in the midst of what is temporal and apparent, a lie may seem to be true, but in the end all these fantasies will fall by their own weight. It is then when those who clung to these supposed truths will have to re-evaluate their course and choose whether to correct their path or not.

“Many let themselves be deceived by the attractions of fantasies and mysteries. In the end, it is a known tendency of the human mind to wait for magical solutions to problems, particularly when patience is scarce and appearances do not permit to see the light at the end of the tunnel. To believe in a fantasy is not a sin, but creating fantasies to deceive and control others is a sin. Let everyone search their own heart and examine their motives.

“Do not fear for your future. Your life is in the hands of the celestial Father and not one among you has been forgotten, classified, separated or segregated in any way. We are all equal to the eyes of our Father and His love is always unconditional, invariable and absolute. None of you has had to do anything to earn this love and none of you will ever lose it. It is you who can choose to close yourselves off from the Source of this love, and let your soul wither.

“Go on, day by day, by living with the firm intent of knowing and expressing the will of the Father through self-mastery and the progressive perfection of your being. Your life happens in the present moment and it is here and now, where and when you can exert the most influence. Let the future be in the hands of the One who sees the end from the beginning and knows best the highest path.”

The Spirit of Truth and ‘Truth Bells.’

Illawarra District, Australia, November 17, 2012.
Secondary Midwayer Chief Bzutu (ABC-22).
Subject: “The Spirit of Truth and ‘Truth Bells.’”

Received by George Barnard.

Bzutu: “There’s genius and purpose behind the ways and methods in which these universes are run. For humans, midwayers and angels alike, it would never do for us to be perfect and all knowing. Not one of us would ever be able to claim we were His trusting faith children. In faith, yet creature uncertainty, there is a vast difference between what you call ‘truth bells’ and the Spirit of Truth. The inaccuracy between the former and the latter is determined by circumstances of mental health and the lack of perfection.

“It is said about us, human and midwayer, that we evolved and make our home on an irregular planet. Well, I see nothing at all wrong with this planet as such, so it’s just a kindly way of saying that we, the occupants, are nuts – a little nuts or altogether nuts, depending on how ‘irregular’ we are in our personal behavior – in our thoughts and habits. The difference between the Spirit of Truth and those ‘truth bells’ is that the former is an innate knowing, for long predating an experience, whilst the latter is a personal conclusion upon perception.

“On occasions, rare occasions, your ‘truth bells’ and the Spirit of Truth may well concur, but for you to claim for this to always be the case, you would in effect be claiming to have achieved perfection. Consider now that even some of those who are created perfect may through pride, or envy, or distrust see their ‘truth bells’ as being input from the Spirit of Truth. How much greater the chance that a mere human or midwayer may find him – or herself – in a life-long belief that will eventually prove to be utterly erroneous!

“Am I wrong, my dear friend? I offer to you as proof this planet’s thousands of religions and sects, adherents of which are so convinced they alone have truth, they may kill for their gods, even burn another’s sacred books. Enough of this, my brother, the degree of accuracy between ‘truth bells’ and Spirit of Truth is generally directly related to the perfection and sanity, the realness, of the claimant. And after all this, I need to ask, ‘aren’t you pleased to know us so well? Aren’t you pleased we know you so well, to say it as it is?’

“This is ABC-22, feeling at home here, and giving an impromptu message. Adieu you both.”

Escapist Solutions

Chicago, US of A, October 23, 2012.
Midwayer Messenger Sharmon (MNO-6).
Subject: “Escapist Solutions.”

Received by Valdir Soares.

Sharmon: “As seldom before, much spiritual help is available on Urantia. It is the mandate of Christ Michael to correct more than three-hundred-thousand years of Urantia being under the yoke of the malevolent Lucifer Rebellion. However, it is not the policy of the Creator Sons’ universe administrations to provide miraculous escapes from adverse situations that occur in their domains. Evolutionary religions are prone to create ‘messiahs and religious heroes’ teaching escapists solutions for human problems. However, entering the era of Light and Life is the result of routine universe administrative measures, not products of sudden intervention on a planet.

“The greatest intervention in the universe of Nebadon was the Bestowal/Incarnation of Christ Michael upon Urantia. Even so, He followed a well-established practice in the universes of time and space; the incarnation as a male of the realm and living a life according to the will of the Father. Teaching – not miraculous and unexpected interventions – is the regular administrative technique employed to ensure planetary progress. The idea that the second coming of Christ Michael is a divine intervention to enforce the will of God on our planet would be a complete departure from the norm. It would be an unthinkable acknowledgment that the first coming of Christ Michael as Jesus of Nazareth would have been a failure.

“For the planets affected by the Lucifer Rebellion there is now in place a transitional period called the Correcting Time, which on Urantia is conducted by our recently appointed Planetary Prince, Machiventa Melchizedek. The Teaching Mission is the ministry of celestials to improve Urantia’s spirituality, working with the world-wide 11:11 Progress Group and the TeaM channelers also from around the world. An order was given to the 11:11 Progress Group to bring people to the spiritual portals, and to from then on let them run their own race. Teaching, leaving acceptance of the teachings to human free will, not by suddenly intervention, is the normal way of promoting spiritual progress on all planets.

“Many celestial teachers have announced with acceptable precision, that the next dispensation on Urantia is a Magisterial one. A Magisterial Son called Monjoronson, an Avonal-Paradise Son, is expected to incarnate on our planet as an adult male of human likeness, whose mission and ministry will bring Urantia to the portals of our Era of Light and Life. A Magisterial Son stays in a planet for at least one thousand years, indicating that a long teaching period will be necessary until his influence and leadership be acknowledged and its benefits accrued. Again, the procedure will be a process, not an arbitrary and abrupt intervention.

“Christ Michael’s return to Urantia is certain; and it is of record that His Second Advent will be in connection with dramatic and traumatic events on the planet. However, when this will happen has not been revealed. When it does happen, it certainly will not be a total surprise. This, my dear friend, is again from me, Sharmon, as per your request.”

God’s Promise

Urantia, November 13, 2012.
The Beloved One.
Subject: “God’s Promise.”

Received by Lytske.

The Beloved One: “Please be attuned to my urgings and prompts at the beginning of a new day and another unwritten page in your life on this wonderful planet earth – a planet so much loved even in the serious shortcomings of its evolutionary development. I desire to speak a few words to all who have an ear willing to listen. It is ever so that each one, who has a willing ear to hear what the ‘still Small Voice’ within tries to convey to them, knows that it is the Creator who speaks, saying, ‘how shall you use this day so I can fulfill My promise to you which I have embedded in you to become a mature individual on this planet, designed to collectively help raise this planet up into the light of her divinity?’

“This she can do only when you lift yourself up to your divinity within. Life is too precious to be squandered with low level thinking, hollow pursuits, and idle entertainment. Please bring such substance into your lives, for which you will be responsible, and of which you will be proud when you have reached an advanced age, and so in looking back you will have no regrets as to the life you have lived.

“It is quite important to ask yourselves a few questions as to how you will spent the rest of your life here in mortal flesh, how you will nurture and grow your eternal soul so deeply embedded in you, and how you will gather some substance to take with you into the next level of your eternal existence. That is, if you have made the decision to carry on to the next level, for this is what this foundational life is all about. Surely you do not desire to be reckoned among those who, when passed through the veil to the next level of their existence, will spent a thousand years or more until the realization dawns and memories flood in about the life they have led here, moaning and regretting the decisions they made in this earthly existence?

“Please realize that life is too precious to be squandered by merely being lived at the surface of existence. You all hold great promise in your being, because the Universal Creator put it there at each conception, and during the maturing process He gave you the power of choice to pick your own road through life by means of the precious gift of the decision making process.

“Therefore it is entirely your responsibility as to which valuable experiences you will bring with you having learned to love and forgive and being compassionate, tolerant and understanding with each other. Deep down you all know that the loving God of all creation has seen fit to allow you this life, to make from it what you will. He has given you the ability to become perfect, and He holds out the promise to you that you will return to Him as perfected beings even as God is perfect.

“There is a most wonderful ascension journey ahead for you all, ready for the taking if you so desire. All that is required is trust and faith in the love of God and your individual life plan. Such is God’s promise to you.”
