Are You Ready?

Urantia, September 17, 2012.
The Beloved One.
Subject: “Are You Ready?”

Received by Lytske.

The Beloved One: “I note that you are surprised by my planning to speak about this subject. It is just a little surprise I like to spring on you from time to time, just for you to learn of the depth of your listening skills. I am happy to report that your inward listening skills are improving. I added the word ‘inward’, it being the most important part. It is from within that true guidance comes, never to steer you in the wrong direction.

“Even by listening within, you have been most surprised as so often your carefully laid plans for the day suddenly took a totally different turn. It left you baffled, and at the same time delightfully surprised, as you, by listening within, allowed the God of your being, to reorganize your day for you.

“And so it shall be with all of my children who elect more seriously to listen within, and to be ready for whatever insights they might obtain, or whichever needed lesson they might learn for just that moment in time. And so, opportunities arise which might otherwise not have had their day. By being ready for unexpected things, spontaneity has a chance to function under heavenly guidance and situations can and do arise where you can do the greatest good just by being in the right place at the right time. This is guidance at its best.

“This is how the universal Creator can fulfill His divine plan hidden in each one of you. These for-now-hidden gifts can already have their chances to develop during mortal life, but only through the readiness of the recipient. On the one hand everyone is saddled with aspects of mediocrity, but on the other hand genius is self-created. It always depends on the readiness of the mortal.

“This is why I repeated: ‘Are you ready?’ For in your readiness you show me that you are willing to delve deeper into your potentials and I reiterate that age makes no difference. Awakening to a higher level of existence can happen at either a very early age or any later time during life, even at a much advantaged age in mortal life. Time is totally immaterial to the eternal Creator God.

“It is always the now moment that counts. Therefore, it behooves you to always be ready for the unexpected moments in life. Be on the look-out for opportunities to be of service to the eternal One. He gave you this precious life with its many opportunities to grow and advance your soul by living life in truth, beauty and goodness, all the while becoming increasingly conscious about from whence all blessings flow. In this way your readiness will increase to be in service to the One, in praise, love and gratitude for all blessed opportunities to become an immortal being, which is the very purpose of life.”

The Adventure of Spiritual Growth

Alabama, US of A, February 22, 2011.
Thought Adjuster.
Subject: “The Adventure of Spiritual Growth.”

Received by Oscar.

Thought Adjuster: “Many of you have felt what the Celestial Teachers feel when a thirsty soul searches for a drink of the water of life. When you participate in the task of helping in the salvation of a soul you are indeed working for the Father.

“Remember what is written in you book – when a truth searcher and a truth giver find each other, the necessary personal influence arises in order to perform a transformation. When you express the love of the Father through your being, you are also improving your perception and understanding of this love. Not many mortals get to experience this, but such joy is available to all.

“These are the rewards for those who choose to do the will of the Father and live the life He has prepared for His children. What was earlier considered a sacrifice now turns into lessons to be learned, and exercises to strengthen the muscles of faith, because with true love there will never be sacrifices. Human parents know first hand that all the efforts they make for their children can be a source of joy and satisfaction when they are inspired by sincere love. Let love be your main motivator and you will start to reap the results of your efforts, so the successes of today will be the rewards for the efforts of yesterday, and the inspiration for the achievements of tomorrow.

“Thus it has always been. When a creature invests just a little effort and faith, the love of the Father overcomes all barriers and fills his or her heart. From that moment the creature, now encouraged and inspired, finds the necessary energy to move forward with increased ease on their adventure of spiritual growth.”

I Abide In You

Michigan, US of A, March 31, 2013.
Christ Michael.
Subject: “I Abide In You.”

Received by Chris.

Michael: “Good morning dear one. This is Christ Michael. On this day, a sacred day for many of my followers, I want those who work at feeding my flock (the 11:11 Receivers) to know how important they are to me and to the work of the Correcting Time. We are partners in this work – I abide in you, and you abide in me. What I have asked from you all, you have done out of love for me and for your fellows. This, my beloved, is what I had asked of my own twelve when they walked with me on this earth. It is this great fatherly love that will heal each individual, which will then heal your world. Your dedication to the great work is duly noted and shall be written in the book of life. I thank you for this most sacred service.

“For those who read the messages, you are like a seed in the wind. You take with you each day the love and the light from these messages and carry it to your friends, your family, your co-workers, and to the strangers on the street. Those who shine their light into the world also abide in me and in the Father, and when you love without condition, without the need to receive something in return, you receive life from me and from my Father.

“You are all my disciples. I know each one of you intimately, and I love each one of you dearly. The healing of your world can only come through love, and so I ask each one of you to plant that seed of love in the hearts of those who are near you, and in doing so, receive from me that abiding love I have for you. Faith, love, compassion, forgiveness, and understanding is the living water that gives life to the seed of the soul, and so I ask you to water your souls.

“Each one of you reading this message, right now, in this moment, I ask you to close your eyes, clear your minds, and take a few deep breaths and breathe in my love. Please take a moment and do this now. This is my gift to you my beloved children – may it seep deeply into every fiber of your being and grow in your hearts. Take as much as you need, for this love is eternal, abundant, and without end.

“My love is a healing love, and it is available to you always. Call on me and I shall abide in you.

“Peace to you, my beloved.”

Being Considerate

Chicago, US of A, April 3, 2013.
Teacher Hezekiah.
Subject: “Being Considerate.”

Received by Valdir Soares.

Hezekiah “Being considerate to others is a spiritual principle that allows us to practice selflessness. It is important for the individual to adequately love him- or herself. As for receiving love, it is enough for you to know that no matter your circumstances, you are loved by the Father of All far beyond the maximum of your capacity to experience His love. Therefore, by being unconcerned about your being loved, you are free to concentrate on loving others. One specific way of showing your love to others is by being considerate to fellow human beings, and by genuinely promoting their well-being, rather than your own welfare.

“On this issue, let us first define what is meant by genuine consideration for others. As a starting point, consider the olden Commandment: ‘Love your neighbor as you love yourself.’ Our Master, Christ Michael, when on Urantia, recognized the value of this principle, but he accentuated its significance when referring to our love for others. According to Him, to love others as you love yourself is good; but, knowing that our love for our selves is indeed imperfect, he said: ‘Love one another as I loved you.’ He thereby put his unconditional, perfect love as the supreme reference for our love for our neighbors.

“There is a difference between the consideration we give others and the consideration we give ourselves. Could you be so considerate to others that you forget to consider yourself? Logically, you must consider yourself so you can adequately be considerate of others. Remember, humility does not mean neglect of your person in order to serve others, rather it means taking good care of yourself so you can likewise take good care of others. The help you can offer others would clearly be compromised if you yourself would need more help.

“Being considerate to others entails ‘two parts and one connection’. The parts are You and the Other; the connection is the Service. If the purpose in this relationship is the aggrandizing of any Self, be it either for your vainglory or for the other’s adulation, surely that would be a bad relationship, because neither should be concerned with its own aggrandizement. When you are concerned with the self you waste energy that should be employed in service. Focus on service will result in satisfaction for you and real help to the other. Put the self aside. Concentrate on service. Show real consideration.

“So, my dear, one must find the equilibrium between caring for oneself and caring for others. The self does not need aggrandizement; your soul needs to be spiritually nourished, just like your physical body. However the aim of this nourishment should be that of being able to help others. Ministry, not aggrandizement should be your goal. Help others grow and you will likewise grow in the process. Your life has meaning when it becomes meaningful to others, because love attracts love. I am Hezekiah, your Teacher also. Ponder these words and let them be true in you. Peace to all.”

Co-creation and Inspiration

Illawarra District, Australia, November 1, 2011.
Midwayer Messenger Sharmon.
Celestial Artisan Athena.

Subject: “Co-creation and Inspiration.”

Received by George Barnard.

Sharmon: “This is Sharmon doing the honors this evening. I am here with you this evening to pass you on to Athena right now. My love to you all.”

Athena: “This Athena. For those of you who are not familiar with my task – the work that I do with many on your planet – I am a Celestial Artisan, a former human though not from your planet. I have taken the name, Athena, because my real name is unpronounceable to you. On my world I spend most of my adult life as a government employee busy with artistic work of all kinds, of pottery, of sculpture, of painting and of drawing including some interesting work and rather unusual things for an artisan – architectural models for building projects.

“My fusion is on hold, which is typical for very many Teachers that prefer to do creative and cooperative work with human beings. And for me it is a great honor to have many students on your world. All of you are entitled to Teachers and in addition all of you are entitled to have the input of a Celestial Artisan in a wide range of creative work. Many of you do not understand, or perhaps overlook, the fact that you are creators, co-creators together with that Fragment of God which inhabits you and it is possible for you to so create many things.

“I am not in this particular instance discussing the making of paintings or the production of sculptures. Creative work may involve cooking, it may involve mathematics, it may involve active problem solving in areas where nothing physical is produced but solutions are to be found. I encourage you to try finding a Teacher for your specific lessons and do your meditation until you have contact with this Teacher. In addition also request that you may be given access to a Celestial Artisan to allow you to solve the most complex of problems, to be creative to your utmost ability with the input of the advanced minds of the Celestial Artisans, who will make themselves available to assist you.

“This is Athena saying it is wonderful to be in touch with you again. My love will be with you all your days. Goodbye for now.”

George: “Thank you both.”
