Momentary Eternity

“Momentary Eternity”
Something long ago forgotten
by George Mathieu Barnard – May 23, 2012.

It was a relatively warm winter’s afternoon in late June of 1995. Robert Harrison, Chester Newland and William Forester, three mature-age university students, were catching the last of the sun’s warm rays on the steps of dormitory block B.

     I was late for supper, scurrying towards the mess hall when one of them said, “Hey guru George, give us your definition of eternity.”
     I disliked being called a guru, but that was their idea of what ‘a clinical hypnotherapist doing more psych in college’ was all about.
     I stopped and explained to them the nature of eternity and how from eternity time space arrived – words along those lines. They sat there on those steps, mouths open, eyebrows raised in disbelief, but I was surely more surprised about what had come out of my mouth than they were.
     My words had been most explicit and utterly soul-felt.
     There was only a icy cold ‘though better than nothing’ apple pie left in the mess hall, but when I got back to block B, just minutes later, Chester Newland had left. Only Robert and William were still sitting on the steps sharing a last cigarette.
     They stopped me again, wishing for me to repeat my answer to their question about eternity, for it was gone from their minds.
     Well! Neither could I remember those exquisite phrases out of thin air, so I pointed at the sky and told them it had all been sent to my brain and mind from way, way up there.
     And until last night, the memory of the event was gone as well.

Thought Adjuster: “To you, the subject of my future personalizing, our eternal life for us both to be enjoyed, and our prospective oneness, this communication of importance. Well might you question if there was any reason at all for the four of you to understand, if even for a moment in time, the concept of eternity. There is no great prize for guessing that for one of the people at that short meeting the entire effort was a waste of time. However, even in the spiritual realm where a wasted effort can be foreseen by me, the ‘doing of the right thing’ must be observed, even by Thought Adjusters.

“The aim of the exercise was not for you to fully understand the concept of eternity. It was not meant for your friends to understand the concept of eternity. Such is presently, and possibly for a long time to come, an impossibility in respect of the mind endowments any of you can support. What happened there on that afternoon was an opportunity for me to get them thinking about their eternal lives. Only through the cooperation of their own Thought Adjusters were they capable of momentarily comprehending -- mind you I did not say understanding -- the reality of eternity. Indeed, just for a time.

“I thank you for documenting the eyebrow raising event.”

A Lesson on Touch

Urantia, May 23, 2012. (date of transcription).
Teacher: The Beloved One.
Subject: “A Lesson on Touch.”

Received by Lytske.

The Beloved One: “Today in our discussion I introduce the subject of touch. This is new to you, because what is there to talk about on such a mundane subject? My dear one, touch is one of the most important gestures one can make. You have heard several stories of how people ‘were touched by an angel.’ This is not just some fantastic fabrication of childish minds. Indeed it is not. It is the celestial world reaching out to help you stay the course towards your eternal destiny of perfection. The point is that many shrug off what only seem to be little miracles, and pay no heed to the vital lessons they contain. There is also another type of touch, and that is the human touch.

“This touch is very important, and there is an ‘ocean of difference’ in the human touch. It is not just the physical touch but also the mental and emotional touch. You yourself have experienced how a beautiful piece of music can touch you to the very core of your being. The most profound moments in a human life can be through touch, a moment never to be forgotten as it remains vividly alive in your memory, easily recalled when needed. The question arises, are you aware of the impact your touch can have on other people? Think about it and see how often you innocently but thoughtlessly go about your day touching people. I desire that you become aware of how it is that you can make a profound impression on people. They may not even be aware of your touch, but this you do with loving intent and encouragement.

“At the present time, the human touch is very much needed, especially the healing touch. Spirit will use such an occasion to channel healing through you. In this manner, you can become a mighty instrument for good on the planet, because you can touch people who are unaware as to what is happening, and yet, they will feel uplifted in some mysterious way. They will only know that things are not quite as dark as they appear. In the same manner, you can reach out to others by telephone or in writing to inspire hope, and in this manner spread healing light world-wide. This is so needed at this present time, but the most important medium is your sincere prayer-time, during which you are connected with the Greatest Healer of all. You too can become a powerful healing medium serving as a conduit for others.

“To reach out and touch others in your time of prayer is the most effective way of all. However, do spend some time on each person or each situation, so spirit can do the work. You will simply be the channel -- the connection through which the healing power flows towards that person and situation. You simply can have no idea how powerful a sincere prayer from a believing person can be. This can make all the difference to the situation the world is presently in. The Almighty God will honor sincere prayer requests at any time, but these requests also need to be according to the divine will. So, always end your request with the words, ‘nevertheless, not my will but your will be done.’ In practicing this kind of touch, you involve the Divine in your work, and what better collaboration for powerful good in your life could you have?”

Just a Little Hint of Faith

Alabama, US of A, November 24, 2010.
Unknown Teacher.
Subject: “Just a Little Hint of Faith.”

Received by Oscar.

Teacher: “It is true that everything the child desires, and is in harmony with the Father’s Will, will always be granted. However, for human beings, the perception of the Father’s Will is so relative and distorted that the granting of the wish almost never happens. The times in which the desires of a human child are in complete harmony with the Father’s Will are very few. However, this could happen, and it will happen during your long individual careers of spiritual growth.

“It makes more sense to do what Michael did. Each time he faced situations in which his mortal mind had no answers, he always said, ‘let my Father’s will be done,’ and he moved on with his life. Many times mortals insist on achieving something they neither really need, nor will it bring any eternal value to their lives, as they repeatedly face failure. It is even worse when after a lot of time and effort they actually achieve what they desired, and discover that they get no personal satisfaction from this, and they have wasted valuable time that could have been used for a better enterprise.

“It is difficult for humans to know what they want, and to put this in reference to their eternal careers. However, the divine orientation lies within each one -- the presence of God Himself that can guide our efforts and our impulses toward activities that provide higher contributions to our spiritual progress.

“You need just a little hint of faith to progressively learn to trust and to let yourself be guided by the One who only wants what is best for you, and can see the end from the beginning. Human lack of wisdom and vision is totally complemented by the presence of the Father inside the human mind. Take advantage of this resource within you and you will be securing your spiritual success.”

Say Hello to Love

Michigan, US of A, March 11, 2012.
Teacher Ophelius.
Subject: “Say Hello to Love.”

Received by Chris.

Teacher Ophelius: “Today’s message is a plea to all you students on the path from your Inner Guide. This Fragment of the Creator, who lives and works in your mind, tirelessly, day in and day out all of the days of your life, wants you to realize and become aware of Her presences within you -- to know the God within personally -- to call to Her by name -- a name that is the highest concept of love that you can formulate in your mind and begin to call on this beloved and divine presence daily, hourly, and in the moments when you are without distraction, to share your thoughts, feelings, and deepest desires, for She is with you and is one with you -- She is you and is your direct connection with the God of all creation, for She is your reason for being.

“The time has come my friends to step up and awaken fully to this infinite resource of love, light, grace, truth, beauty, and goodness. She desires for you to have a conscious relationship with Her, and it is only through this sincere desire by you to want this connection that she will begin to speak to your conscious mind where you will feel Her presence, feel Her admonitions, and feel Her unconditional love for you. She wants to guide you intimately to know the Will of the Creator, and to become conscious of your eternal place in the universes as sons and daughters of the Most High God of Creation.

“She wants you to make the distinction between the illusions of this material world and having the awareness of the realities and the greater eternal values of what it means to be a universe citizen. She desires for you to step into the stillness and into divine communication with Her that she may teach and lead you into the joy of everlasting bliss -- the unconditional love of the Father for his child. You are so very much loved, for the Father bestows this gift of Himself to be like a beacon of light that shall guide you back home to the source of your being where you will stand in the glory of the Father of lights on paradise. She wants you to feel this gravity that pulls you inward to know, to love, to have all that can be given to one so precious, so loved, so eternally worthy as you, my beloved ones.

“Say hello now to Her, for She is waiting to hear your greeting and wanting to share all with you. Make this day the day of all divine anniversaries, the day you said ‘hello’ to your Beloved One. You shall remember this day for all eternity, the day you reached up to touch the glory and marked the day on your heart -- the day you began your eternal relationship with the Inner guide, the pilot to eternal adventures and keeper of everlasting and unconditional love. Come now into the joy of Her embrace.

“Peace to you,
“The Circle of Seven.”

A Lesson on Hidden Things

Urantia, May 20, 2012. (date of transcription).
Teacher: The Beloved One.
Subject: “A Lesson on Hidden Things.”

Received by Lytske.

The Beloved One: “Today we will discuss hidden things; things which never see the light of day, and yet form an important part of everyday life. It is significant, of course, to note that there is absolutely nothing hidden from The Almighty Creator. Since I -- having come to indwell you as a Guide to show you the way back home -- am a tiny Spark from that self-same Creator God, everything is also known to Me. Therefore there is nothing hidden from Me either, as I hold the same complement of knowledge inside Me. However, these things hidden I shall endeavor to impart to you as our association progresses. I am tasked to teach you in order for you to gain wisdom.

“Your present capacity to understand the mysteries of Creation are so minuscule that to the onlooking celestials it is a great joy and wonder to witness your faith, and see how admirably well so many of you cope, even in the direst of circumstances. Oh, I know very well all the superstitious beliefs which are in place as coping mechanisms, but these should not concern you or anyone, for all those shall fall away as the scaffolding they have served as to create a firm foundation of faith. Once the greater truth becomes known, all the old outmoded systems shall pass away to make room for the new and more enlightened truth. Everyone holds only a tiny part of truth in their being according to their personal understanding, and of course according to the belief systems they grew up in.

“Many still feel that such is the only way there is, and if they are comfortable with their faith, and it gives them the needed soul-peace, leave them alone, for they will do well. Only when they ask questions, can you reveal what it is that you know, but always remember that you don’t know a great deal more than they do. There is ever so much to tell you, but it all needs its own ‘time of awakening’ -- a readiness for you to accept. There is of course the matter of revelation during which some of the hidden things are being revealed to you, or through you. When someone needs to know a certain thing, this can be revealed through you in a casual conversation even, when you allow Me to speak through you. As a matter of fact, this is going on all the time, when humans allow their God within a voice, which can be very helpful in trying circumstances.

“Remember that I am well informed about each mortal as I am about you. Indeed, at all times I do have access to all other Sparks of God. There is neither time nor distance between such communications with each other. It is all instantaneous, and should it be necessary for you to speak comforting words to someone, these are available through Me. Well might you wonder from where those words came. When you are willing to be used, you shall be used and circumstances and opportunities will be presented to you, to take advantage of. It might interest you to know, that ego may not play a role in revealing things which are hidden. This is important to remember. You will only be the instrument through which the Almighty One desires to be revealed. The closer you walk with Me, the better you will be able to discern the soul needs of another, and be able with a few words to offer insight or assistance. This is walking in the light and love of God to help heal others as you yourself are being healed.”
