The Self-Made Spiritual Individual

Subject: “The Self-Made Spiritual Individual.”

Received by George Barnard.

Machiventa: “This is Machiventa Melchizedek, your Planetary Prince. I am at my observation post where it is easy for me to keep an eye on all my subjects. From the moment you decide to go into stillness, we here are notified. And so, I take this opportunity to enlarge on the subjects of your discussion. There is a way for me to explain what great opportunity you have on your world to become a self-made spiritual person.

“You covered in your discussion the Lucifer rebellion, the Caligastia betrayal, the Adamic default, and more. I want to add to this an important one; the natural but selfish instinct of your intellectuals, your preachers, your leaders, who will create a religion out of spiritual instructions in order to control, make dependent.

“And yet, you can be like the person that builds up a business from the ground up; the so-called self-made man with an idea, and the so-called self-made woman with a plan, who rise from poverty to riches. Let us use this only as an analogy of a kind.

“Here you are; a divided human population, not uniform and transplanted from another world, but grown from the very material of this decimal world – disadvantaged in many ways, genetically, educationally, and most importantly, for millennia and millennia beyond the Van and Amadon days, without any spiritual guidance – without anybody, that stayed around for thousands and thousands of years, to declare to all generations that there is just one God, to lead you, to teach you, to keep you on your spiritual path.

“And so, I say to you, you are not like the son or the daughter of the rich man, who can build another rich business, so easily with inherited funds. You are in many ways the impoverished, the down trodden of the universe, and so much to your credit if you can make yourself a straight path, if you can be productive, if you can be honest, if you can be that self-made spiritual individual, if you can believe in a God, and if you can live your life to the best of your ability, as one who really cannot prove there is a God, and yet knows there is a Father of all that is, Who is love personified.

“The disadvantages in your life on this world, in your time, become tremendous advantages in your morontia lives that follow. Few, in this sector of the universe have had handed to them the amazing possibilities that are yours by birthright. Begrudge them not their easier lives on regular worlds.

“This is Machiventa. I greet you both. May we have many more discussions soon.”

George: “Thank you Machiventa.”

From a Goblet to a Chalice

Message received by Anyas

“Your spiritual destiny is conditioned only by your spiritual longings and purposes.” [UB 156:5.9]

Thought Adjuster: “Have you seriously pondered your spiritual destiny? Do you intend to opt for eternal life since life in the flesh is short-lived? Are you already making judicious arrangements for a great start in the after-life, or will your spiritual procrastination cause you great anguish when your name is called for boarding the shuttle to higher dimensions?

“In one of his morally-educative animal fables, Lafontaine depicts the humanitarian crisis Mademoiselle Cricket found herself in after singing all summer long, neglecting to store victuals for the colder seasons. On the other hand, her next-door-neighbor, Madame Ant, industriously stocked her pantry while her musically-inclined acquaintance foolishly partied as if there were no tomorrow.

“Your free-will privilege gives you the right to self-govern, thus appreciating or depreciating your life portfolio. It is its use that determines the value of an object. Would you perform menial tasks with a golden chalice? Set your sight high as to your existential purpose, as the Father has high expectations for each one of you.

“I am not saying that life should be devoid of the down-times needed to recharge your energies. It is perfectly okay to attend outdoor crickets’ concerts and break bread with them. Nevertheless, keep in mind that you have limited time to lay the groundwork for a sustainable eternal future. You were not a doodle on the divine drawing board, but a miracle of engineering conceived to fit in the wheels of the Grand Scheme snuggly. It would floor you to know the long-term divine vision for your existence. Each leg of the journey will groom you for more extraordinary service—turning you from an ordinary goblet into a magnificent chalice.”

Alike to a Sweet Incense

Teacher: The Beloved Within.
Subject: “Alike to a Sweet Incense.”

Message receive by Lytske.

The Beloved: “Allow your soul to burst forth in song, and offer up those songs to the great Creator of all. Alike to a sweet incense are the prayers of sincerity and joy, and a soul-felt gladness results. You are gradually trained according to your willingness and readiness for things to come.

“A greater awareness is dawning upon you that there is a much higher purpose to living then just the every-day worries about food and drink for the body.

“You come to Me daily because of a hunger for Me to feed your soul, and this is beginning to register as a greater significance in your mind. The spiritizing of your mind in connection with your soul is now well underway, as you take My words to heart, and ponder them.

“True harmony and balance shall someday be yours, as more and more you take Me with you in your daily living. Forget not that I am with you in each moment of the day and in each breath you take.

“Therefore, My beloved, begin to live each day more mindfully, so your thoughtfulness increases, and many more of your mortal siblings will recognize that you spend time with Me.

“They too, will desire to attain that peace of mind.”

The Time-space Disagreement About 11:11

Illawarra District, Australia, July 31, 2009.
Midwayer Chief Bzutu (ABC22).
Subject: “The Time-space Disagreement About 11:11.”

Received by George Barnard.

Bzutu: “It is the aspiration, the objective, of the great Architects of the time-space universes that all evolutionary worlds will, as closely as possible, come to resemble the worlds created in visualized perfection and instantaneous completion. Those, precisely, are the instructions given to them by the Architect of all Architects – the First Source and Centre to all that ever was, is, and will be.

“Clearly it is understood that there can be found little that is of a creature-evolutionary nature and innate to worlds that are created perfect. In contrast, there is initially little in the way of inherent creature-perfection to be found on evolutionary worlds. It is a function of our time-space universes to provide all its created, born, and eventuated citizens with an opportunity to, through lengthy experience, become God-like, and of great use as Ambassadors, and Teachers to, as well as benevolent Rulers of, the evolutionary universes now forming in deep space. Perfection in time-space, however, is consuming of much time.

“Is it not true that concrete takes time to harden, or it will become brittle and useless when the curing process is rushed? There is scientific proof that this is so. Is it not wise for a child to be taught according to a well-planned syllabus? We know for a fact that this is essential. As well, is it not vital for entire populations to advance at a measured pace? I give you as proof the sad decline of ‘over-run’ native populations in many lands. Even so, there are amongst you those who will reach for the sky, and want to see progress at break-neck speed. Indeed, whilst there are others, who will ‘throw out the anchor’ and shout, ‘Stop!’

“Only in a created world of perfection could there be agreement on all matters of importance, whereas on evolutionary worlds there must always be the two opposing forces – one to produce growth, the other to temper it – one to fly high, the other to bring one back to earth. And so it is on this world as on all other evolutionary worlds of time-space, as we come to tackle the question you have posed: ‘Why should there have been such strong and lengthy disagreement about the wide-spread use of the 11:11 time-prompts?’

“To understand the objections one needs to compare established religion, with the spirituality of the individual, and a third, heretofore unknown, but sure-fire way of finding your Teacher and God. A religion requires you to believe in what it dictates without proof, spirituality demands that you have faith in the spirit world, and likely without a shred of solid evidence. However, the recipients of 11:11 time-prompts, through regular meditation, and without them believing anything at all, can prove, and they do prove time and again, that a spirit world exists, and that the universe is innately friendly.

“The now decades-past disagreement between the Progressive and Religious Angels dealt not so much with the certainty that some recipients of the 11:11 time-prompt would be frightened. That would happen. That was always obvious and predictable. The Religious Angels objections dealt to a far greater degree with the potential loss of your most enviable special status on this world; the birthright of the Agondonter.

“You are entitled to that special status on this troubled world by believing and having faith in God without having proof. Despite the fact that you can now prove the existence of the spirit world in a near-scientific way, that status has not been lost by you.”

An Inexhaustible Patience

Oregon, USA, October17, 2020
Thought Adjuster
Subject: “An Inexhaustible Patience”

Message received by Anyas

Thought Adjuster: “How patient should one be? For how long? Doesn’t patience bear some expiration date? Some have a short supply of it, always threatening to run out. Others described as having the patience of a saint can endure longer episodes of frustration. What about God, whose patience is commensurate to the infinite span of his unconditional love?

“The keywords here are ‘unconditional’ and ‘love.’ Those who love with empathy and compassion put up with so much more aggravation than those who operate in a self-centered mode—taking everything personally. Moreover, those who love ‘no-matter-what’ win their championship in patience hands down.

“What is the point of patience, you may ask, if it eventually runs out and causes the casualties of impatience to endure the full lashing out of the ‘offended’ parties who self-righteously refuse to come to their moral senses? Ironically, it seems that the wrath's intensity builds up according to the length of the ‘grace period’ — at least as far as the human species is concerned.

“Let us now ponder divine patience. First of all, it operates from the perspective of eternity—the absence of time. Therefore, it is immune to the ‘getting-fed-up’ escalation factor. The Father set everything in motion and seeded life within the parameters of time and space—your living quarters. He considered all this when he tipped the first domino. He has a winning hand, no matter how it plays out.

“Divine patience harvests the rich dividends of waiting things out to serve the highest good. It is the reason why over 200,000 years have elapsed since Lucifer’s betrayal and more than 200 decades since the planetary ministry of Jesus. Why allow for so much extended and acute suffering to befall myriads of innocent souls? It is because, in the end, it contributes to the building of strong characters, an integral part of the divine providence.”

“The universe of your origin is being forged out between the anvil of justice and the hammer of suffering; but those who wield the hammer are the children of mercy, the spirit offspring of the Infinite Spirit.” [UB 9:1.8]

“Hone your discernment skills to determine when it is appropriate to adjourn your loving grace period if it failed to yield the hoped-for positive outcome in the life of erring souls. They will then have to learn the hard way, left to cope with the unavoidable boomerang effect of their disastrous misbehaviors.”
