Kindness is your Strength

Chicago, US of A, October 10, 2012.
Teacher Prolotheos.
Subject: “Kindness is your Strength.”

Received by Valdir Soares.

Prolotheos: “The idea that goodness is equal to weakness, and that evil is stronger than good, still inhabits the minds of many Urantians. That is how many people still see kindness; as weakness. Kindness is not a natural endowment resulting from evolution, rather, it is a learned behavior after a species gains personality status, and from the teachings of the spiritual ministry and administration on the evolutionary worlds. Kindness achieves better results than does rudeness. It is also incorrect to consider kindness to be a strategic tool used to befriend or manage people. It should be a personal choice of living, following the leading of the Spirit Within till it becomes an effortless expression of one’s character. How to exercise kindness without it carrying the mistaken notion that it is a weakness?

“First, think of kindness as a commitment, not an option. Avoid thinking: ‘First I will try being nice, and if it doesn’t work, I will do whatever is necessary.’ You must believe in kindness; that it serves all purposes, fits all situations, and always produces the best results, even if these are not the top priority. If at any time you fail to express it, kindness is still available to you in the form of an apology. Sincere apologies and thorough amends may not undo the wrongs of the past, but they do heal and restore relationships in the present.

“Next, think of kindness as a link in the long cosmic chain of goodness that is now being practiced all over the Universe of Universes. Kindness is not the only virtue you should practice, and you are not the only one who believes in it. The foundation of kindness is love, but its defense against being misunderstood or manipulated is a loving assertiveness of will. Your supreme example of kindness is depicted in Jesus’ life, but notice that he did not hesitate to be unmistakably assertive when necessary. Showing kindness is not being subservient, or being a dull-brain.

“Lastly, think of kindness as one of the best nutrients for the soul. If you want to develop your soul, being kind must be part of your spiritual diet. In the end, being kind is nothing other than applying the Golden Rule: ‘Do unto others as you wish for it to be done to yourself.’ Kindness makes you strong, not weak. It may not be so for people who have forgotten the importance of spiritual values, but it certainly is the fulfillment of the will of God concerning the way you ought to treat others.

“Therefore, my pupil, kindness is a feature of a mature character when it exhibits itself naturally, without pretense or self-righteousness. Do not lose courage if people sometimes ignore, spurn or misunderstand your kindness to signify pity. Arrogance cannot recognize goodness, because it is blinded by pride. Keep on believing in kindness, and keep on practicing it. Acts of kindness are cosmic seeds that never die, for the winds of time will carry them to better soils – a hope for the future. I am Prolotheos, your friend and tutor on High; carry on, my dear.”

Free Your Mind

Michigan, US of A, October 21, 2012.
Teacher Ophelius.
Subject: “Free Your Mind.”

Received by Chris.

Teacher Ophelius: “The message for today is about how to free your mind and to train it so it can become an instrument of the Father’s will. Like a wise farmer who prepares his fields for a good harvest, you also can bear good fruit through the preparation of your mind for spiritual leading by changing how you live, think, and feel, and to become aware of what kind of thoughts come into your mind that influence the way you perceive the world, and how you feel about those in your life circles.

“We cannot emphasize enough how important it is to remove unnecessary and unhealthy media input from entering your mind, for this is first on the list of things that has the most influence on your thinking, your opinions, and how you perceive the world around you. You have a saying on your world used mostly by computer programmers that states, ‘garbage in, garbage out,’ meaning, if poor and careless thought goes into the lines of code when writing a program, then poor quality will result in the output of that program. The same is true for you when you allow poor and unhealthy input from entering your mind through the eyes and ears that will undoubtedly manifest itself through your thoughts, your words, and your actions.

“The second most influential source of unhealthy input comes from relationships: friends, family, acquaintances, and co-workers that are mostly negative and are themselves heavily influenced by unhealthy programming. In this case, those relationships should be managed consciously to minimize contact, or to hold your ground, so to speak, and prevent them from disrupting your harmony. Do not participate or sympathize in the negative behavior of others.

“The third source of mind disruption is unhealthy vices, for these are the things that consume the mind and become ‘needs’ that can shut out all healthy and spiritual influences. The Father’s Will can never take root in a mind that is addicted and feeding the constant need for self-gratification. Take back control of your mind and do not allow these needs to control you.

“It’s all about ‘vibration’ my friends, and when you become host to things of low vibration (negative thoughts and emotions), then you also become sympathetic to those influences. The Father’s Will is of high vibration and so if you wish to be led by spirit, you must condition your mind with things of high vibration – love, joy, truth, beauty, and goodness. These are the things that till the soil of the mind and fertilize it for good fruit. By embracing these virtues, you give off a light in the world that has a positive influence that can be felt by others who may have a lower vibration and thus can elevate the condition of their minds by sympathetic contact with you.

“This is what it means to ‘serve’ others and to become an instrument of the Father’s Will – to take care of the self by freeing the mind for spiritual input, then can you be affective in the world and help others free their minds. This is the way of progress and growth through learning and teaching and this is the way of ascension. Prepare yourself now for higher thought, my friends, free your mind and allow spirit to lead you into all joy by becoming a channel for the Divine Will.

“Peace to all,
“The Circle of Seven.”

Spiritual Influences

Alabama, US of A, January 14, 2011.
Thought Adjuster.
Subject: “Spiritual Influences.”

Received by Oscar.

Thought Adjuster: “When Dante wrote about hell and purgatory, he was elevating spiritual knowledge of his time. Similarly, many have done this with their paintings or their stories of wars, science fiction, adventures, or their essays of political science, of literature and of philosophy. There isn’t a hard and fast or rigid way to express truth to your peers. Many times art is the ideal means of expression, because it creates an appreciation of beauty and harmony, effectively tuning us in to the frequencies of the Father.

“Great truths have been hidden in the dialog of the characters of many stories. For many of you it is better to discover these truths in such an indirect fashion for it to stimulate your contemplation and creativity. These are the scientific minds among you, who are normally unwilling to adopt anything that is spoken about, and who prefer to independently find values and meanings behind the words.

“It is understandable that many who write the stories that are read by others, will one day discover that many ideas from 'on high' were interspersed among their words. All human beings are to varying degrees subjected to spiritual influences. All can receive divine inspiration to motivate them to on each day be better persons. It is the degree of spiritual progress, and the decisions of each individual, which determine the probability of a divine impulse, once hidden in the human mind, coming to light to become a reality in this world.

“This is true of any human endeavor. Those who perform their duties with love and dedication somehow transmit their love in the beautiful results of their work. Perhaps what is produced may not be universally praised, but there will always be some who in the work of others will find just what they need to awaken, or move forward with their lives. With any effort that you make, turn it into the best you have to give, because somebody will always get some benefit from it, and you will be elevating your work to the category of service in the name of the Father.”

Emotion Overflow

Illawarra District, Australia, October 20, 2012.
Divine Self (Thought Adjuster).
Subject: “Emotion Overflow.”

Received by George Barnard.

Divine Self: “It may well surprise you to learn that your life, yes even from before birth until fusion and beyond, is known to the Creator of all, of course, but therefore also to your Divine Self. Immediately you should now question if your Divine Indweller should therefore be bored because of knowing all that is to come. No, not at all, for indwelling a human being is a busy, experiential shared task with the human mind, for the benefit of the soul. At times the connection goes beyond that of the Adjuster and the soul. The Adjuster contacts the mind and we have Emotion Overflow! Explain now …”

George: “This is unusual, I think, but right here I suppose I can explain for those who are listening right now. Some many years ago I watched a small child unwrap a present. It was a really great birthday gift. Then another present was unwrapped, and it was even more pleasing to the child. However, a third present, packed in a rather large box, elicited a sudden loud cry, ‘No more!’ It was too much to handle, I guess. It overwhelmed the child. At the time it was not easily explained. Later on it did make a degree of good sense.”

Divine Self: “You may see it as that particular child being emotionally overwhelmed by the significance, the perceived value, of those well-chosen gifts, which for this youngster, and at that time, hardly related to an as-yet-to-develop, appropriate self image or fitting self worth. The incidents of emotional overload that are brought to your attention, and your description of a tight cluster of these events of late is appropriate. However, they only distantly compare to the experience of the child, so consider with care.

“The child’s reaction to the additional (third) gift was one of being overwhelmed without an understanding of the reason why, even by all who knew the child well. The many different reactions, such as smiling, laughter, even chills, but mostly tears of happiness reported by 11:11 receivers, yourself, and subscribers are of a different nature, and ‘a progressing Cosmic Consciousness’ is one answer. In effect these events are mostly little-understood opportune times when Spirit, soul and mind are in alignment, in touch, one might easily say.

“A song, often just the melody or rhythm, can trigger a tearful but happy response by aligning the consciousness, the awareness, of Thought Adjuster, mind and soul . A vision, thought, landscape, or work of art, can generate a seemingly inappropriate but exciting response. They are proof of spiritual elation and strength, not weakness or failure. They are the sign-posts of direction and the mile-stones of progress on the evolutionary path of God experiencing mortal life, and humankind becoming more God-like on the way.

“Only those not yet advanced to this stage will think of sadness or weakness, but one day they will also know the significance of those random hallowed moments. Continue to do my bidding now, and you shall be rewarded a myriad times over.”

Your Basis for Security

Chicago, U S of A, October 8, 2012.
Teacher Prolotheos.
Subject: “Your Basis for Security.”

Received by Valdir Soares

Prolotheos: “The reason why human beings crave security is due to their sense of vulnerability. Life during this first stage of your universe journey is full of danger, mainly with the risk of physical death, the inevitable loss of your material projects and failure of future plans. At this point, life is an exercise in survival, the often constant search for security. Security may seem illusory, quite out of reach, but you can experience it in this life if you realize its foundation.

“Your first source of security is knowledge. Knowledge is power. Even when it is conditional, it can provide you with informed options for your next move. Science is the organization of knowledge so you can draw understanding from universe phenomena. Your Cartesian logic is indeed limited as a tool to advance your knowledge, but it is a good start nonetheless. However, the knowledge that really brings security to human beings is to know the reality of the First Source and Center of all. Knowing God gives you the knowledge about your origin. There is security in knowing God as your Creator and the Center of your life.

“However, finite beings cannot know everything. There will always be something unknown, and there are realities that finite beings will never be able to understand. Therefore, knowledge alone is unable to provide full security, so the human spirit will continue to yearn for more. The tool that works and convinces, which knowledge cannot, is faith. Faith is not illogical or irrational; faith is supra rational – it goes beyond logic and insight to believe that which is spiritual. Believing that God is personal, good, and a caring Father of all, gives you the security of being loved and protected in the midst of a universe of unpredictability.

“Acquiring knowledge and harboring faith in your heart is vital to your security, but there is one last variable in this equation: your will. The choices you make directly relate to the level of security you attain in this life. In fact, the degree to which you acquire knowledge and faith is not so important, but being rational and articulate about what you know and believe is essential in enjoying a satisfactory sense of security in life. Life-choices determine your path in your evolutionary journey. You may neither know much nor believe all, but your knowledge and faith should be the source of your appreciation to do the will of God in life, for living according to this insight guarantees you the maximum security you can experience in your present status.

“Therefore, my dear pupil, security comes from the combination of these three life ingredients – all pertaining to you. Know the facts; question them and answers will come. Mysteries lure our speculations and theories, but faith makes all possible. Base your choices upon these three life-foundation stones and you will have a safe journey on Urantia. I am Prolotheos, always on call.”
