Make Your Prayers Count!

Thought Adjuster: “It would tremendously propel your world at large—you included—toward its ideal state of light and life if its citizens led sound prayer lives, as authentic prayers detain great powers of positive transformation if prompted by caring intentions.

Jesus admonished his audience to pray on behalf of their detractors—not against them, as it defiles this holy act. Hostile petitions are nothing but an abomination to the Father. You can gain much enlightenment about genuine prayers by reflecting on the sublime quality of Jesus’ spiritual life.

His heartfelt invocations were selfless acts of intercession. When divested of the crucial elements of love, empathy, or compassion, prayers are nothing but a despicable expression of hostility. They ask the impossible of the divine Godhead. How could He ever shrink the scope of His all-pervading unconditional love to favor your petty and unrealistic negative wishful thinking?

Jesus never childishly ran to the Father to tattletale on his planetary siblings in a misguided attempt to earn his sympathy and prompt him to meter out severe punishment on their heads without any due process.

Seldom did he pray for himself. He did turn to his indwelling divine Fragment for guidance and to strengthen his resolve. He was—understandably so—grievously oppressed, heavy-laden, and sorrowful in the fateful hours preceding his arrest. He prayed, “My Father, I came into this world to do your will, and so have I. I know that the hour has come to lay down this life in the flesh, and I do not shrink therefrom, but I would know that it is your will that I drink this cup. Send me the assurance that I will please you in my death even as I have in my life.” [UB182:3.1]

At the apex of his emotional and physical agony, the only words he uttered were: “Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they are doing.” “He could not have so mercifully and lovingly interceded for his executioners if such thoughts of affectionate devotion had not been the mainspring of all his life of unselfish service. The ideas, motives, and longings of a lifetime are openly revealed in a crisis. [UB 187:2.4]

Make your prayers count that way!”

Knowledge and Experience

Alabama, US of A, October 17, 2013.
Teacher: Thought Adjuster.
Subject: “Knowledge and Experience.”

Message received by Oscar.

Thought Adjuster: “Since all of you possess the presence of God within your being it should not be a surprise that revelations of truth have come through the words of many of you. The great variety of the forms in which each one expresses the truth he or she discovers in the experiences of life lies in the differences of perception that exist among human beings. That which for one is a powerful light that fills the soul with hope can be a peace feeling that is the elixir of existence for another. These descriptions are just two different ways to interpret a similar experience by two different persons.

It is possible to find inspiration in the words of many sacred books, that are just the interpretations of the religious experiences of those who wrote them. Many pearls of truth are hidden in the pages of your sacred books, as well as in your literature, your poetry, your art. All these are avenues of expression through which mortals have tried to shape and understand what happens in their inner world. The mind will always attempt to consolidate the religious experience within a conceptual framework that makes it more understandable, more real, and this may not always produce good results.

While you study the thoughts of others always keep in mind that it is in experience where a true value can be understood. Each one should strive to live their own religious experiences. This way you can understand better those things you try to understand through intellectual study. There is no document, even if it is filled with the most versatile prose or the most artistic verses, that will ever describe the sensation of loving another as well as the experience of falling in love can. The difference between what you read and what you live can literally be heaven to earth.

The danger or attempting to preserve religious experiences for others lies in the human tendency to crystalize knowledge, forgetting that the understanding of the truth must always advance and complete as wisdom develops. A life attempting to understand and live the will of the Father always offers more complete revelations and allows experiencing the divine love with increasing clarity. This is how a human being can move closer to the Father and understand Him better each day.”

Primary Midwayer, Andrea.
Subject: Reconciliation! Of Such Importance! - The Proverbial Lost Son...

Received by George Barnard

Andrea: "Hello, my dear brother in Christ. This is Andrea. More than any of our midway comrades, it is I whom you might call on, and expect to come to you, and speak with you whenever time permits. And with me this is more often the case than it is with our secondary brothers and sisters.

"A vast gap in time is what separates us, yet my lengthy residence on this planet (some 500,000 years) has allowed me, although admittedly with great difficulties, to acquire the additional gift, the talent, or expertise, you might say, to speak with you directly, as well as with a number of other widely disparate receivers. And for me to be able to do this has been my greatest wish for… oh, so long!

"More than your secondary midway cousins, do we primary midwayers resemble more nearly the seraphim in outlook, in mindset and personality. However, all of us are different. All of us are greatly different. Physically we are similar. In basic mind endowments we are similar, but in personality we vary greatly, and not one of us truly even resembles another.

"And I, personally, am very much drawn to the task of teacher for my human distant relatives."

George: "OK. That bit’s back to front, I guess."

Andrea: "…drawn to the task of being a teacher to my distant human relatives. So, my dear brother, how do I explain my relationship with you? Well, there is great value in the way it came about, or one might say, in the way it almost failed. To many of us, the early indications were that you might well have become the proverbial Lost Son, and there was no hard feeling on my part that you rejected my presence out of hand. No! Not in the least, since I understand.

"You were a lost son, and by the willpower of your own mind, you forced yourself to return to the family we still now refer to as ‘the 11:11 platoon,’ and through perseverance did you triumph over the hurdles of your upbringing and early childhood experiences to, yes, overcome these sizeable obstacles. The sheer force you applied to return yourself to us, and embrace all of us! And I cannot adequately describe the extraordinary joy we all felt with your homecoming

"Reconciliation! Of such importance to us all! And myriad entities watched for the outcome, each one holding his or her breath, and there were celebrations!

"More than for any one of my groups will I always set aside adequate time to converse with you and yours, for we have come to love you, and we will back you come what may. Ask for what you need, and if same be within our means, it will be provided. Do not be reluctant in stating your needs, and just as your (overcast) weather will soon clear, so will the present hurdles of life be pushed to the side of the paths you all travel to remain as but a vague memory.

"May you all fare well in the extraordinary tasks you have chosen for yourselves, under the guidance of your exceptionally talented heaven-send teachers corps, on this extraordinary world, at this amazing ‘window in time.’ Wherever you may go, take with you the eternal love of your doting servant, Andrea. So long, and fare well."

George: "We love you right back, Andrea. Thank you."

Notes: Little is known about the Primary Midwayers. Scant information has been passed on through the ages. The ancient Greeks note them to be "hermaphrodites," and truly physically androgynous is what they are. My misunderstanding of the term, "Androgynous" lumbered her with the French male/female name, "André-a."

André-a soon became Andréa, then just Andrea, and I shortly after ‘christened her an honorary female.’

Since she initially appeared to be much more time distant, and merely projected herself in shades of gray, I did not see her as a member of our group or platoon. Since she never moved, or even said a word, I asked her in 1972 to go away, convinced she was just a ghost, a lost "soul," or a spy – a lazy sticky-beak, perhaps.

In a sense, I guess, I feared seeing her, whilst she might not have been real.

She did leave, or refused to show herself, after my rude suggestions, and then I began to really miss her company. When she returned, I challenged her to be more productive, and she did speak a few words to me, but collapsed immediately after, utterly exhausted by the effort of "bridging an additional timeframe" in addressing me directly with important information. That was then.

By 2001 she was granted something she describes as "extra energy," and it allows her to converse with us directly, and effortlessly. She communicates with other groups and individuals in the world, where she may, or may not be known by that name. Her involvement with the 11:11 Group was her first real direct contact with humans since she worked with the original Oracles of Delphi – those that were there long before they turned "highly commercial," – millennia ago.

Do Not Let Defeat Get the Upper Hand

Subject: “Do Not Let Defeat Get the Upper Hand”

Message received by Anyas

“Religious insight possesses the power of turning defeat into higher desires and new determinations.” [UB 196:3.29]

Thought Adjuster: “Episodic defeats do not have to turn into terminal losses. When correctly processed, they become potent catalysts that propel you forward from an unforeseen backstep and bring you ever closer to the happy unfolding of your divinely conceived destiny.

How else could you become aware of what needs remediation or improvement in your inner world if it remained unruffled—yet in disharmony with God’s way?

Defeats bruise your delusional and unruly ego. Humble souls interpret them as road signs pointing in the right direction. If you harbor a victor’s mentality, they will drive you forward instead of intimidating you, remotivating you to beat the odds.

Many successful individuals ate their share of humble pie. Yet, passion-driven, they kept pursuing their dreams. How much sweeter was the taste of their hard-earned victory!

It all boils down to your attitude. You are the one deciding whether you will let setbacks depreciate the overall quality of your life—thus declaring emotional bankruptcy—or if their stings will act as booster shots.

Rather than victimizing an innocent God with your misguided anger, unmask the real culprits. Were your objectives legitimate? Did you lend a deaf ear to the warnings of reason, acting foolishly? Both defeats and victories are subject to the immutable law of cause and effect.

Go back to the drawing board. Instead of flying solo, enlist the wise assistance of your inner Guidance. Skillfully turn your misses into hits by expressing gratitude for the very situations that act as agents of positive change in your life and as generous dispensers of practical wisdom.”
