Shaping Your Character

Urantia, March 25, 2013. (date of transcription).
The Beloved One.
Subject: “Shaping Your Character.”

Received by Lytske.

The Beloved One: “Today we cover a subject that warrants your close attention. It will give you some insights, which, no doubt, will also be very useful to others. In your mediation this morning you received an insight as to what will be expected of you, and of course of all mortals who are serious about doing the will of God. Like you, many have problems in determining what exactly it means to do the will of God. After life itself, your personality is the most precious gift anyone can receive from the First Source and Center of all Creation. You have also learned that the ideal method applied to time-space is perfection through evolution.

“This method has been used since time immemorial. So let us now turn to the subject I desire to discuss with you – the unfolding of your personality, which is embedded with all the seeds of potential possibilities. These seeds are considered to be the gifts the Creator bestows upon each living being. How each person develops these innate seeds depends entirely upon the gift of free will. As we venture further into this discussion you will begin to realize, and to use, that quote from a man who touched the secret of the universe (* see note below: Walter Russell). He concluded that ‘Mediocrity is self inflicted; Genius is self-bestowed. The choice is in each to realize what is wanted out of life, as genius is inherent in everyone.’

“So how do you begin to realize some of those seeds embedded in you? Simple! You enrich your character through determination and self-discipline in whatever you undertake. You become more conscious of your behavior towards self and others, and so the journey of self-correction begins. Every minor achievement is a victory enhancing your personality whilst you unwittingly shape your character towards perfection. Even the tiniest step represents a move forward to bring forth the genius in you. It is by this method of self-education that you evolve towards perfection, to in the far distant future stand in front of the almighty Creator, having brought forth all the tiny seeds inherent in you to its greatest possible fulfillment.

“Do you now glimpse what a wonderful journey your ascension journey is going to be, to by your own choices and decisions develop your own God-given blueprint? You will become the most marvelous being the Creator has in mind for you, only through shaping your character according to his will. This constant shaping is important. It is your present centered awareness paying attention to where you can improve and love yourself more, so you can love others more, and thus treat them the way you would like to be treated.

“There will be no more self-criticism, and no more disapproval of others as you are all worthy children of the eternal Creator, busily evolving yourselves according to the all merciful and unconditional love of God. This shaping your character towards perfection will continue throughout your ages-long journey until you are found worthy to stand in the presence of the All That Is, having developed your inner genius to perfection.

“Ponder these words and start appreciating some of the gifts you have been given. Do develop these gifts by shaping your character according to the blueprint inherent in you. Let your personality shine like a brilliant light in the cosmos.”

* Note: The Book: ‘The Man Who Tapped the Secrets of the Universe’ was written by Glen Clark about Walter Russell – 1871 – 1963.

When bad things happen

Alabama, US of A, February 17, 2011.
Thought Adjuster.
Subject: “When bad things happen.”

Received by Oscar.

Thought Adjuster: “The love of the Father has no limit. It is the most powerful force in the universe. Nothing can triumph over this infinite love, and nothing can restrain it, stop it, or make it go astray. This love will heal all wounds and fill all the voids in the spiritual lives of all creatures that search for comfort, guidance and salvation.

“Many horrible events have occurred on this earth. Often the culprits are victims of mental problems, who in their moments of fleeting mindal clarity suffer enormously because of the things they have done. Some simply don’t know any better. Very few willingly cause the great tragedies of humanity and they fully understand the consequences of their actions. All these individuals will have plenty of opportunity for rehabilitation on the Mansion Worlds before making the definitive decision about their eternal destiny.

“Those who are forcibly removed from this world are being placed in good care on the Mansion Worlds, and all the deficiencies of their past, and the loss of experiences on this world, will be compensated. Know that the care of the Teachers of the Mansion Worlds greatly transcend anything that can be done here on earth, regarding the love they invest in their tasks and their qualifications and experiences. Those who have gone to the hereafter before their time will eventually resume their journey to Paradise in a normal fashion.

“Many of the tragedies of this world are indeed hard lessons and many innocents certainly don’t deserve what happens to them. However, even such tragic experiences have their worth, and all can learn something from them, at least in preventing them from happening again. Send your love and your forgiveness when bad news fill your hearts with sadness, and trust that everything will always be for the best, and that all will be solved according to the will of the Father. Strive to be more spiritual, more like what the Father has envisioned for each of you, and you will contribute to healing the many wounds of this world.

“Many of you will start noticing that you are becoming more sensitive to the bad news of the world. This is not so much a part of your spiritual growth as being a consequence of it. True paternal and fraternal love is awakening within you by your letting the Father’s love fill your being. You are beginning to consider all others to be your siblings, and all – particularly children – awaken your paternal love for all humanity. It is natural that you suffer when you see others suffering – this is the natural human empathy that arises from the fact that we are each other. Now you begin to understand how the angels and other Celestials, particularly Michael and the Father, feel and suffer just like you, perhaps they do even more so.

“This love is the cure for indolence – not caring about your peers. Those who are awakening to this love feel the need to act, to help, to contribute, and this is how the problems of the world will be solved and how the age of Light and Life will at last arrive. Love is the solution, it has always been, and it remains so throughout the universes. Very few have discovered this in this world, but each day more are starting to realize this truth and that the divine light is shining with increasing intensity upon this sphere.

“All those who have been involved in man-made tragedies will face a time of reckoning. The guilty will forgive their selves, and the victims will forgive them. Imagine the reunion of these souls in the future when the only thing among them will be unconditional love. This will offer the best possible outcome for the bad things of the past.”

Consequences of Time-space Creation

Illawarra District, Australia, February 22, 2013.
Mentori Spokesperson.
Subject: “Consequences of Time-space Creation” (abbreviated).

Received by George Barnard.

Mentor: “Your Teacher Samuel’s lesson on Karma and Reincarnation, Teacher Aaron’s lesson on Collective Karma, and our (Mentori) efforts on the Consequences of Time-space Creation, will dove-tail well, we feel. We greet you, and we will now proceed although the hour is late. I am a Mentor and a former human.

“In producing time-space universes, and venturing out into them, the Creator Sons and their Consorts – the Michaels and Mother Spirits – in creating humans also give rise to a paradox. Whilst evolution runs its course down to the finest and most bizarre of random details, man’s individual free will remains paramount. It is not negotiable but for extremely rare occasions of celestial intervention. However, not one single human was ever asked if they wanted to be born, which parents they would select, or what race or nationality they preferred.

“In eternity, where ‘everything happens all at once’, so we are taught, one can experience whatever one will fully focus on in earnest. They are the consequences of time-space creation and evolution that there must be sequential events, and the new-born simply cannot have a record of having requested life before conception. Impossible. I did not request to be born, neither did you, nor did anyone human or angel. And therefore, perhaps, there are provided eventual outs, which in certain, most uncommon circumstances, do apply.

“It is possible for one to live such a selfish and dishonorable life that one’s Thought Adjuster, in reality ‘man’s ticket to eternal life’, decides to leave even years before the mortal temple – the human body – has breathed its last breath. The all-knowing, all-caring Thought Adjuster would have no need for the constantly upsetting thoughts and behavior of the wayward inconsiderate human host. Knowing the future, this Gift from God would know the precise moment at which irreconcilable human inequity would set it free.

“It is possible for one with little more than the vague hope that there is more to come, rather than physical death entirely ending the journey, to attain eternal life. One only needs to land on the mansion worlds where every conceivable counseller, every imaginable carer, every plausible teacher is available to redirect the errant individual. Much can be caught up with, although a few, stubbornly refuse to ‘get with the program’ and finally decide that aiming for eternal life is simply too hard, too tough and exhausting. They become unreal.

“Here you see that when either negative karma becomes too great for the Thought Adjuster to remain, or unwillingness to proceed becomes final, the former human becomes unreal, and eventually the Paradise Citizens called the Ancients of Days will determine the personality spiritually insolvent. He or she will then be as if they never were even when all are invited. Proportunately few are lost that will not repent. The needless loss of these willful ones is seen as a calamity, and ‘The Gods learn how to cry’, as ABC-22 puts it rather succinctly.”

“I speak on behalf of our group of Mentori. We thank you for your good efforts. We leave you our love.”

The Walls of Limitation

Michigan, US of A, March 17, 2013.
Teacher Ophelius.
Subject: “The Walls of Limitation.”

Received by Chris.

Ophelius: “Today we would like to speak about the limitations that humans put on themselves, and which prevent them from accessing all the spiritual help that is available to them. These limitations come in many forms and most are the result of childhood programming and fear based conditioning. The remainder is from injury as a result of past failures, rejection, and adult fears of low self-esteem (not being good enough). These limitations are like walls that have been built up over time to shut out the light, but there is a way to begin to knock holes in these walls, which can give you a glimpse into a brighter future where growth, light, and love can become yours.

“Walls are built for protection – to keep invaders from coming in and changing the comfortable life that you have created. Some are built slowly from childhood where you are taught by others to fear and to keep safe from harm. Other walls are erected very quickly as a reaction to injuries of the ego where many layers may exist to keep one from being vulnerable or curious about what lies ahead if one were to become open to change. A complex system of these barriers can easily turn one’s life into a maze where it becomes difficult to find a way out, and allow love to come in.

“These walls then become the limiting factor that prevents the Indwelling Spirit of God and all other spiritual guidance from operating efficiently to provide opportunities for growth and spiritual direction. In essence, the walls become galleries for signposts that say, ‘keep-out,’ ‘unsolicited advice unwelcome,’ ‘I’ve seen this before and it will not end well.’ After many years these walls and signposts become the excuses for a life of stagnation. The neuron-pathways in the brain become very deep and wide – well-worn, and new thoughts and ideas have little chance of finding higher ground. Is there a way to break free from these hardened limitations?

“Faith, my friends, is the pick-axe that can bring down the walls. For some it is a slow process of cautious testing of the waters, or climbing the first interior wall to have a look at the second, then to see over into the third, the fourth, then to the green pastures outside. Others let go and rise above the compound on the wings of faith to see the field through the trees. Faith is the bypass mechanism that bridges over the worn pathways that keep you in the habits of stagnation and limited thinking. Faith is hope in things unseen, untried, and the conqueror of fears. Faith is the one thing that can free you from the childhood conditioning, the hurt feelings, the low self-esteem, and will prepare you for spiritual guidance and soul expansion.

“Give yourself permission to climb the first wall to your freedom and allow spirit to show you how to have life and have it more abundantly. Open your heart and ask God for what you need, even if you don’t know what that is. Be open to receive guidance and expect new opportunities to show up in your life. Make yourself vulnerable and believe that nothing can really harm you unless you allow it. Grant permission to your Higher-self to lead you to a life of abundance, love, and growth. Be courageous enough to release the pride that has kept you from loving and experiencing a life of joy. This is a true reality, my friends – the illusion is behind the walls of your making. Only faith can set you free.

“Peace to you,
“The Circle of Seven.”

Guilt and ‘Self-flagellation’

Illawarra District, Australia, March 23, 2013.
The Damascus Scribe.
Subject: “Guilt and ‘Self-flagellation’.”

Received by George Barnard.

The Damascus Scribe: “At any time, day or night, I am available to you, and much more so than my being a Teacher, I am your Friend. Much more so than my being informed about what goes on around you, I am acutely aware of all happenings pertaining to the Progress Contingent. In leading the very Ruler of Nebadon, I declared the progressive characteristics of my personalized self yet unrealized. My task now is to contribute in any way possible to bring forward the unstoppable tide of Light and Life. Yes, I am the Damascus Scribe.

“We will discuss guilt and self-flagellation as distinct from clear analysis of the self, most determined resolve to improve the self, and tranquility of mind as a result. It is so often forgotten that the evolutionary worlds are the spawning grounds for one of the grand universe’s most important species – humans, mortals – those made of the elements of the planet. It is so often overlooked, not by us, but by you, that you will fail to be perfect in every way, every day, and that you will feel guilt to the point of endearing self-flagellation.

“It (self-flagellation) is no longer such a favorite way of telling the self and others that one was born in sin and may never grow to gain the Creator’s acceptance! Happily the custom is dying out, slowly, yet the mental attitude has hardly improved. There is so much guilt and self-deprecation among you! And this belies the friendly universe you live in. Evolutionary worlds are the training grounds for future emissaries to the outer universes now forming. Mortal men and women will be the true and tested representatives of the Gods.

“We so eagerly want to see you to be accepting of yourself in your weaker moments, seeing your world as a large remedial classroom where great curative powers are unleashed. Perfection is to be attained through learning right from wrong and thereafter defining which path to travel, doggedly, unwavering. So much is lost through clinging to regrets of a past that cannot be altered, and so much is gained by living in the now with a focus on the future! Yes! What roundabout way I have traveled here before getting to the point!

“Here than is my answer for the fearful ones for whom man-made religions of crowd control have painted a God to be dreaded. He is a loving Father Creator, instead! It is a rarity for a Thought Adjuster to be so distressed by human ways as to permanently leave him or her. And it is most uncommon for a human soul to lack all redeeming values. More common is it for those ‘reborn’ on Mansonia to view their tasks in rehabilitation as ‘too awesome’ to even contemplate. These, though few, may well decline eternal life, and be made unreal.

“So I admonish you all to know yourself, strive to always do better, and encourage a calm mind through prayer and meditation. I leave you my love. Carry on my friend.”
