Is There Really a God?

Michigan, US of A, May 20, 2012.
Teacher Ophelius.
Subject: “Is There Really a God?”

Received by Chris.

Teacher Ophelius: “The message for today is about the evidence of God and the conditions for which one may receive an answer to validate God’s existence. Where is God, and how do we know there is a God? Many on your world ask this question, some in sincerity, and some in skepticism. Those in skepticism are trying to disprove the existence of God by asking this, always pointing to the physical sciences of what is known to the puny mind of man, while those who ask in sincerity are looking for answers because they really do not know, yet they ‘feel’ some kind of innate curiosity to find out.

“The skeptic is closed minded and has already decided for himself that God does not exist. The sincere individual is open to knowing truth and therefore has set in motion the vibrations necessary for the universe to answer, and the answer shall surely come to that open minded individual in ways he or she may not expect, but will recognize, none the less, as their God fragment points the way working together with the Spirit of Truth to validate the evidence in the heart of the individual.

“Where is God? The question is not, ‘Where is He, but where isn’t He?’ Look around you my friends, and really survey your surroundings. Look at the earth, the sky, the trees and vegetation, the birds and fauna, the flowers. Look at yourselves, your children, the incredible consciousness you have and share with others like yourselves. Think about your complex emotions and the feeling of love you have for another. Do you really think all this was a cosmic accident?

“Close your eyes and create something from nothing. Use your imagination and create some beautiful castle sitting high on a hillside. See the color of its great stonework shimmering in the sun. See the tall watch towers looking down at the world and see the great wooden drawbridge – now see the great many windows in its facade. What have you just done? You have created something from nothing – you are a creator! Where does this imagination come from?

“You were created in the image of God and therefore you shall do the works of God. Life on the material worlds of time and space is just the beginning for you, and so your co-creative powers are attenuated to a safe level for you to operate in. Those that believe in this creative power can bring the visions of their imagination into reality – the proof being the existence of ‘real’ castles on your world.

“The skeptic will never receive an answer because he is like a bucket full of stagnant water never willing to empty himself to allow fresh water to come in – the ego never wanting to be proved wrong. In contrast, the sincere individual is open to receiving an answer and is willing to ask it. Be willing to ask questions my friends, not just about God, but anything you desire to know. Remain open to receiving the answer having faith that the answer will come and you will recognize it when it does in whatever form it may show up. When you receive that answer, think about how or where that answer came. Was it a happy accident that brought it to you, or was it something more?

“Peace to you,
“The Circle of Seven.”

A Lesson about Holding On

Urantia, May 21, 2012. (date of transcription).
Teacher: The Beloved One.
Subject: “A Lesson about Holding On.”

Received by Lytske.

The Beloved One: “Many mortals suffer in silence from low self-esteem. For others it is more in the open. It will be helpful for Me to shore you up, and assure you that these feelings will become redundant in the times to come. The Father in heaven has decreed that the times for renewal have begun, and this counts for everyone. No one is excluded from these times of self-correction. The Father prefers for you to live, rather than to just hold on. Our deceptively simple little lessons harbor many kernels of truth and guidance, which serve as 'way-showers' on the road to perfection, which is the purpose and goal of your existence. I desire that these lessons are to be published. These little gems can be read at random, being received one day at a time, to go forth to nourish and strengthen a day at a time.

“Such patterns of holding on, which are no longer useful to you, are best placed in the past, were they rightfully belong, so they don’t continue to poison your mind, encumber you and cramp your life-style. The zest for living is the most prized gift you can give yourself, and when you feel your spirits sagging, turn within to the Stillness and ask for My help. My help is freely available, but hardly anyone knows how to ask and take Me up on My offer. This needs to change, and is very easily done when you flex your faith and trust muscles. Yes, place your faith and trust in Me, so these muscles will grow stronger and will serve you well to overcome your mental handicaps, some of which were placed there from infancy on by your significant others, who were likewise laboring under the same mental handicaps.

“Please break this chain of self-abuse, and free yourselves from the limiting back-talk of your minds. It is no longer necessary to berate yourself. Everybody makes mistakes, but this is how humans learn. These mistakes shall serve you well as lessons by which to progress. Each day is another opportunity for start afresh. There really is no need to bring your old worn-out habits of thought into a fresh new present. Learn to live more consciously, so you can nip these unproductive thoughts about yourself or others in the bud. Please remember to hug yourself once a day and then know too, that I am embracing you, also. This is truly worthy of remembering, because you are all beloved children of the Most High God.

“Self-limiting thoughts are most unproductive and so are those old patterns you are hanging on to. Each day is to be enjoyed as the first day of a new beginning. The old has served to get you to where you are now. Don't look back lest you fall into the pit of self-recrimination, for this habit is very destructive of your peace of mind – a boulder placed on the path to soul-growth. Let’s rejoice for this is the day the Lord has made with all its potentials and possibilities. Greet each day filled with the expectation that it is going to be a good one. Come to Me first in a mode of anticipation and allow Me to lift your spirits to were they belong, in the groove of an attitude of gratitude, which makes the whole day flow smoother. Try this and see how you like it when life flows smoother because you involve Me in it. Follow this train of thought and soon there will be a new habit in place, more helpful and hopeful to you as the old ‘holding on patterns’ of the past fade away.”

Mindsets in Disrepair

Illawarra District, Australia, May 20, 2012.
Machiventa Melchizedek.
Subject: “Mindsets in Disrepair.”

Received by George Barnard.

Machiventa: “It is good to spend time with you, and for me to enjoy your presence and new-found energy. In the months just past there were many (human) healers on your side of the fence who offered their prayers and sent you energy for you to mend when you needed that. Also there were many (celestial) healers on my side of the fence who did their very best. It is good to see you are in better shape. This is Machiventa, and, naturally, I jest.

“We would all be on the same side of the fence, if really there was a fence, but there is no division. We are one. We are each other. From our celestial viewpoint, we simply cannot be separated. It is from your trivial human efforts in the analysis of our possible connectedness that you see separation, total separation at times, for the pendulum swings and has swung to the extremity of its sweep. Humanity approaches a difficult to navigate crossroads.

“Truly, the appropriate path to take – for you simply cannot forge ahead – is clear to your celestial Teachers and Guides. To the human majority your future is opaque, laden with fears of hardship, poverty, extreme governmental overcontrol and rumors of war. What we witness from the time-distant sphere that makes us invisible to you is that you have become unclear about your purpose in life. From the lowest worker to your so-called elite, your mindsets are in disrepair.

“You were entrusted by the Creator of all, who remains indeed a part of you, to progress His universes to the delight of all creation. You were collectively assigned the task of being the gardeners of all his myriad planets from here to untold lightyears away in all directions. He delegated the care for your brothers and sisters to you, all of you capable of caring. In doing these things, consciously, willingly and tirelessly, you are doing the Creator’s Will.

“It is time to consider the appropriate path to take on the crossroads you are fast approaching. It is time to ‘rearrange’ your disparate mindsets towards a common goal of no more wars, no more sanctions, no more inequality, no more fables of imaginary enemies that breed real enemies in the end.

“I am Machiventa, the Melchizedek of Abraham’s time, proclaimed your new Planetary Prince by Christ Michael, pleading with you to ‘lift your game’ in this Correcting Time and recall your task to the Creator’s greater glory. I bid you Adieu for now.”

Excellence in Living

Chicago US of A, May 15, 2012.
Teacher: Prolotheos.
Subject: “Excellence in Living.”

Received by Valdir Soares.

Prolotheos: “Living is a technique of expressing personality in reality. Living is more than simply being; it is to interact meaningfully with the environment and others around you. Living is to exchange experiences for mutual enrichment. As a technique, living should not be left to chance – it can be mastered. Any individual can accrue personal excellence in his or her dealings through experience. Just as you can become a better professional by mastering the various aspects of your trade, you can also be a better human being by mastering the technique of living.

“To become the master of your own living, you need to know which things bring improvement to your life and which things impede your progress. For example, human living is improved when one finds the equilibrium between the self and others – seeking in life that which is good for you, and also for others. Selfishness seeks personal good without bothering about the well-being of others, but love takes others into consideration in everything that’s done.

“Living is also guided by principles or values. Personal values confer meaning to life – something important to live for. Values may assume different names in different cultures and for different people, but they all share a common characteristic: they all are paramount in life; they are, as we call, the ‘Will of God’, the ‘Golden Rule’, the ‘Right Thing to Do’, in all circumstances.

“Fundamental to mastering the technique of living is the development of a genuine resilience to life’s adversities. Resilience is not stubbornness, but persistence. It is the ability to deal with the difficulties of life without being discouraged, no matter how overwhelming your struggles can be. Only genuine faith in God and trust in your Spirit Within can strengthen your life with the divine input that allows you to ever rise up and start anew after each disappointment.

“Life is a constant struggle; it is what you make of it in the midst of these struggles. If you are always striving to do the will of the Father to the best of you ability and understanding, then you will daily improve your technique of living towards excellence.

“I am Prolotheos, your teacher and spiritual tutor, always no more than a thought away. I am glad that you consented to answer my recent prompts so we could deal with this unfinished lesson. My love is with you.”

Urantia, April 30, 2012.
Teacher: The Beloved One.
Subject: “Perception.”

Received by Lytske.

The Beloved One: “Allow the words to flow. They seem to arrive out of thin air, as you perceive them. This is what our subject is all about – perception – letting the words form in your mind. Mortals are endowed with responsiveness to the sixth sense, depending in measure on how much thought is given to the inner life, spirituality and eternity, but only to the degree one refuses to get bogged down in the outer material world with its worries and concerns.

“How much better off you all would be if each of you would develop this inner sense of perception as this relates to your spirituality. Many superstitions and pre-conceived opinions would fall by the wayside. Mortals would increasingly discover the truth which resides in each human being in the form of the Thought Adjuster. This Spark from the Creator God resides within each of you, helping all you thinking mortals attain a measure of truth for yourselves as it exists for each one. In this way, each human being can perceive part of the truth as this truth is ever enlarging as it exists in the Being who gave life to you all. Is this not preferable to the spoon-fed, worn-out belief systems and superstitions of old?

“Over time, perception becomes a knowing as perception has an increasing influence over the faith of the individual. This is the perception that ‘something additional to the self’ exists within you, and this will become a personal conviction which no one can take away. This knowingness is the surety which evolves over time when more time is given to develop that sixth sense. It can even be applied to all areas in life.

“At times mere belief systems become so strong and so solidly embedded in the human psyche, that there simply is no room to entertain different thoughts. The windows of the soul now become so clouded over, even shuttered and closed down. Therefore no Light is able to penetrate, and eternal life no longer remains a possibility.

“It needs to be remembered that truth is ever enlarging the more one gives room to perception and truly takes responsibility for one’s own thoughts, so insights can arise which alter the human psyche forever with an enlarged truth which leads towards a greater love for one another.

“Growing humans are more inclined towards peace as this quality is deeply embedded in the human psyche and needs to be uncovered with a knowing that peaceful thoughts are the healthiest thoughts. Peaceful thoughts automatically embrace love for one another with the wonderful quality of mercy and forgiveness. Love is the willingness to ‘do good’ to others and forgiveness is divine when it is experienced without strings attached, which means that it is unconditional. A hidden joy will spring up in the human soul because of the freedom forgiveness brings.

Life can be so beautiful and become much easier when the psyche and the thoughts held in mind begin to produce a greater balance in the physical system. Perception then becomes increasingly used, which enlarges the understanding of life itself.
