The Teaching Mission Annual Meeting
Nashville, July 1998
July 15,1998, 10:00 p.m.
Group Session: Nashville TM Conference
Note: TR (S) was very tired after a long plane flight to the conference.
OLFANA: Greetings to all in this room. (Smiling) I express, here, my own level of energy, and will hope that S can stay with me as I offer myself to you as one of your Teachers. I am the Teacher Olfana, and I sense a strong familiarity with some of you in this room, and others I am just now coming to know. I would like to emphasize this point. It was recently discussed upon the E-mail list that you share, “What type of connection is made, now, between yourselves and those of us who represent the celestial outreach of this Teaching Mission?” We connect with all of you. You are all bound together with us in this connection of understanding and affection. (Gesturing to a person seated close to the TR) I sense you, now. I sense you, over in the corner. I am aware of the overall tone, I would say, of those who are, now, in the room. At the same time, I would encourage you who are seated in the room to feel this sense of a direct connection made, now, with me. It is, indeed, appropriate, and hopefully a comfortable thought to recognize that we Teachers are, indeed, aware, to a great degree, of the thought processes of all of you in this room, now. You are our testing ground, as it were, and each one of you is precious to us in this process. We wish to relate to as many people as there are who choose to join with us, now, in this coming together of our hearts and minds, in our desire to improve and uplift the spiritual integrity of the planet.
Having made this statement, is there any comment or question anyone now has in the audience regarding this topic? Student: Greetings, Olfana. I'm one of the new ones that I don't think you know yet. What you said was really curious to me. I was curious if you could hear each time that we thanked one of you for the wonderful, wonderful help we receive?
OLFANA: We are, indeed, sensitive to the vibratory patterns which emanate from your beings. You are not merely the spoken words that are heard within the room to our own reception abilities. We sense you as an integrated and complete vibratory pattern which expresses the physical compartment which houses this precious soul which is the most essential
view that we, now, reach toward. And, indeed, this current of thankfulness, gratitude, appreciation for the connection that is made, this sense of companionship which we offer, now, in our teachings, this sings from your souls. And we hear it with great pleasure.
Student: I'm glad. OLFANA: You will all in your own eternal destinies come to experience another being in this most beautiful and complete manner. Think, now, of so much that the Urantia Book discusses of the quality of connection that is made in this sense of how God brings us together. We are joined in so Many marvelous and responsive ways. We reflect each other's energy. We express this God Current which, indeed, fills each one of us. We bond in a community of creation and love and respect. All of these are patterns, potentials placed within us, by the Father with design. And to the degree that you feel strongly moved in this relationship which begins to form between you and your Teachers, I encourage you to savor and honor the integrity of this strong emotion. We wish you to recognize that this level of the sense of the brotherhood is what we have come to display. (Strongly moved) We love you just as you are. You are precious in the Father's eyes, and we are here to help you to discover this about yourselves.
Student: Olfana? I think that is how you say your name.
Student: (Joking) I'm just amazed at how you're flinging those arms of S's around without hitting that microphone.
OLFANA: (Smiling) I am most appreciative that she took that nap in the corner. This allowed me something more to work with in her being.
Student: Thank you. I have a question regarding our E-mail communications, and it's becoming quite a family-oriented meeting room.
Student: Do you have any advice for the Teaching Mission's spread, and teaching and reaching out to those who do not have Teaching Mission groups in their local area, or the use of the e-mails, so that it could be posted for all to read?
OLFANA: I would be happy to have whatever statement I now make reproduced upon your lists. I enjoy, very much, the communications that occur there, and at one point, S made the joking comment that she felt the Teachers were, indeed, signed on with their own E-mail addresses--<Olfana@vibration.com>, <Machiventa@administration.edu>, etc.--and most certainly, S struck a note of truth in this. Anytime you are engaged in
these communications, discussions, and discoveries of the ways in which you perceive us, what you wish to learn from us, what you are learning from us; this is the heart of the matter for us as Teachers. And we study you all vigorously in those moments. Do not doubt that when you phone each other, we are conference calling in those moments, that the letters you write to each other are shared by us. The poems and personal journals that you write of your interest and ongoing research into this process, we are privy to these, my dear students. (Smiling) I hope you are comfortable with this thought because it is unavoidable. We are there with you, and we intend to remain so. I would say one brief point regarding this. We are not Peeping Toms. We do not wish to invade your own territory or personal zone, and therefore if, indeed, you ever choose not to have us observing or watching you, simply think the thought, I wish my privacy, now. And you'll have it, I guarantee you.
But, back to this other point made about the E-mail lists. We are intensely pleased, overjoyed, I would say, to see the ways in which you have caught the ball and run with it yourself.
You do not need us handholding you at each step in this process. I would hope that you can understand that thisis one of the gifts you have been given by being born a Urantian. Not much handholding occurs on this planet. Is that not true? As a species, you would have died out long ago, my dear ones, if you had not had such an inner desire and urge for self-survival, and a creative response to the challenge of the moment. This is a great gift in the Urantian nature, and we are watching it manifest itself in your own interactions with us in this Teaching Mission. You know how to take this ball and run with it. Sometimes, we Teachers have a bit of trouble keeping up with you. Oh, my goodness! Where are they going, now? In what direction is this about to take off? We respond to this with joy. But, indeed, you present some challenges for us, also. And in this regard, please remember, this is a co-creative process. We are here as Teachers, but certainly, we are still students of the Vast Creation of God. And you are our textbook. And we are discovering much that we did not necessarily anticipate in your responses. I hope you can understand, in this regard also, what a remarkable leader Prince Machiventa is. That on the one hand, he has his sense of the campaign, he knows what he's about in his plans, and his orchestration of our activities, and yet, he rides on the waters of the experimentation of this planet, as do the rest of us. We are to remain flexible. This is a primary directive from our prince. We are to remain flexible in our responses and activities and efforts of outreach with you. Therefore, these E-mail lists are something of an unplanned, but greatly appreciated, manifestation of your own ability to take this ball and run with it. And we watch the lists with great interest. Indeed, those of you who feel The list is my group, now. This is where I go for the main sense of what is about with this Teaching Mission. We welcome you there! We are certainly there with you. We want you to feel affiliated with this broad sense of the outreach and connection that can occur with these lists. And we hope that you can, indeed, see that this potential for a sense of strong caring and bondedness, this brotherhood, sisterhood--S coined a word which we enjoy--this familyhood of God's children coming together, exposing themselves, expressing their thoughts, their concerns, with the trust that they will be heard with appreciation and respect, not with a desire for condescension or attack but, I am listening. Please speak to me. We relish the way in which you are sensing this growing familyhood on the lists. And we feel as much a part of these groups as you do.
Student: Thank you, Olfana.
OLFANA: You are most welcome.
Student: And I also want to thank Allene Vick's newsletter, which also unites our family so much.
OLFANA: Most certainly. And I do not in any way mean to slight any of these other efforts of outreach. I choose not to make a complete laundry list, now, only because, again, this effort can tax S, and I'm holding her up, as it were, as best I can, now. But, you all know of your own efforts in this attempt to do this outreach. All those ways in which you offer our words to a broader group of your brothers and sisters that you hope will hear these words with a sense of joy, anticipation, expectation, and even a sense of relief. My God! This is there for me. This matters for the planet. If we can stir this in your hearts, then we are doing the job we have come to do. Is there any further question? Or should we draw this to a close because I can sense all of you, now, with this sense of lassitude. The hour grows late, and we have much to do, come tomorrow. How would you like to close? Is there a further question, or should we now, perhaps, close with a prayer? What is your choice?
OLFANA: Very well. I will stay, now, with this theme of communication and communion:
Our Dear Father,
Who knows us so well,
Help us to come to understand
The beauty that you see in each of us.
Help us to learn the true meaning
Of loving each other's hearts,
Each other's souls,
Each other's full beings.
Give us the words, Father,
To express our truest hopes,
Our greatest dreams,
Our highest desires.
Give us the ears to hear
When our brothers and sisters
Speak to us of these same things.
Lead us, Father,
In a joining together of our beings
Into the most beautiful and perfect plan
Which truly expresses Your Will for us in our lives. Amen.
If you will all sit quietly for just a moment, I am the voice for this, but there are many Teachers contributing, now. S is feeling immensely strong vibrations in her being. Please, all of you, take this in. Absorb this connection. We are reaching to you with our hearts. Feel it, now. Feel us reaching to you. And now, my dear ones, we Teachers wish each of you a comfortable and blessed night of restful sleep. Namaste.
MESSAGE FROM NERO
TR: Jim Cleveland
NERO: I am Nero, a Teacher in this mission. And in this beautiful farewell evening, I would like to address you for a moment. You, the few and the mighty. For sometimes I know you consider yourselves small in number and you wonder with some worry of your significance in such an awesome challenge as planetary change.
Perhaps I can add some calm and peaceful insight to this intermittently nagging consideration. Had you been an apostle of our Master, you would hardly know that you, an ordinary man, is helping to bring forth upon the world a brand new religion. For you may consider yourself a fisherman, a man of modest means, a working man, a family man. And would you have the time to help create a new and expanded religion? And you yourselves daily face all the challenges of a mortal life, and seek to find these times between in which you can contribute great work can be accomplished by the few who are spiritually connected to the energy. And who have learned to bring ideas, visions, hopes and dreams to fruition with bold actions. The few can be the mighty. The motivated charged electrified with the energy of the spirits.
How many people does it require to seed the Urantia book in every country of the world? Surprisingly few. The worldwide web at work has been inspired and co-created with you for the purpose of bringing this arena into potentially powerful and quickening exhilarating interaction. The speed of change will be greatly accelerated in years ahead. You are the threshold of a beginning. And though you are few, I want you to understand in your hearts that no matter the burgeoning publishing of spiritual ideas, inspirations, and motivations, you have a message, it could be called a marketing niche by the secularists, which no one else has in its pure and simple form.
You have a unique message which many will find to be the kernel the nucleus that will unify and center their spiritual growth. These people will range form the mainstream of organized churches to the bold adventurers of the so-called New Age. Which often resembles the ancient age revisited. All of these proliferating movements, in fact, mean that you are not the few, you are a unique band with a special heartening nuclea-ized message that cuts to the heart as no other movement seems to be doing. This incisive and liberating message of God presence inside. You are attuned to strong and powerful truths through your cosmology text which provides over encircling foundation. And a newly dramatized teaching of these concepts which have been ruminating within your minds these many years.
It is time for action. You are taking these actions, you are revealing God inside. You are revealing the art of listening, hearing, and interconnecting with celestials of many personalities and many missions who are flooding, flooding, flooding to this sector of the universe for purification. You are part of this purification, beginning, as all other great movements begin inside. Inside the hearts the minds the souls of each of you. All great movements emanate from within. Therefore, one goes within to begin personal growth and purification, after which time, you will be sponsored and accompanied, side by side, with your celestial friends who move forth in living service.
There is some impatience that things move too slowly, but I ask you to consider with truthful heart if your own purification has been manifested. And if there are no other lessons to learn individually personally that will make this precious limited mortal time more appropriate. And in this purification comes the preparatory skills and personality balance resembling to the degree of possibility the supreme balance of Christ Michael as Jesus the son of Man.
You may be few, but you can bring yourself, your personality, into a state of balance that you take greater satisfaction in knowing that you at least resemble and emulate the precious Jesus. While you may not find this perfection in every day of your mortal life, you will find a balance that helps you to glide and not take hard steps, that smooths your day by day transition into a feeling of blended, encircled peace and energy intertwined that will carry you through each day. And you will know restful sleep that truly nurtures and refreshes and invigorates.
You as individuals can reach this level of purification that you may go forth as apostles, working in twos, and doing great work. Do not be impatient. Look in hindsight, as a tool, to see how far you have come. And you have come far. For your relatively few numbers, we consider you the most dynamic, the most heartfelt, and the most contributing segment of this textual revelation. You were chosen many years ago, most truly as children, because you asked for higher spiritual understanding, and you have been led to learn this cosmology as a curriculum to inspire you to teach universal truths in your daily lives. Many skills, many talents come into the fore and many great works are done by individuals in very small
groups working together.
Do not despair of the media. The media is also changing. And the media will change even more. And do not feel because you are one or because you are few that you must carry this great load of planetary evolvement upon your shoulders. For truly the energies are emanating from each heart of atheist and agnostic becoming increasingly restless, disillusioned with what they have found to be not true, hungry for a deeper depth of understanding. And on every point of light on Urantia, from the monasteries, to the churches, to the synagogues, we work with individuals, bringing forth from within, the indwelling spirit, those concepts and inspirations that are needed. This is a massive planetary awakening. And the mission is even more massive to your points of view when considered form a local universe context. For Nebadon virtually vibrates with excitement of epochal purification of planets, of worlds, and this work is so incredibly exciting that I wish you could see it from our perspective. However, your perspectives are what you must refine now. This is your opportunity for life in the flesh and experiential learning as has been said. It could not be obtained in any other way. Patience, of course, is required. Patience, patience. For this time of unfoldment is not only an exercise in developing your individual purities, your individual strength of will that will make you as an individual a forceful warrior for love and peace. It is also an exercise in cooperation, for while the individual must realize self-potential, and a level of self-reliance within the context of grace, you must learn to work with others who have differing often frustrating views as you have learned in the trials of your various groups.
It is all about learning and growing and that is what is going on. It is all about evolution and that is what is going on. And so as you learn the strength of the one, the strength of the small groups, the strength of the many, you must also learn that cooperation in enterprises of this magnitude require even more, they require intergenerational cooperation, ordinarily not done by the father and mothers of today, but the continuation and completion of this great purification and reclamation must be done by your children and your grandchildren. And we encourage you to take yet another responsibility in training them well. Training them to carry on, through the generations, an amazing story will unfold on this very special planet.
And always know and always understand that the doomsayers, apocalypic prophets my friends, from my perspective as a teacher in this mission, I say to you that these catastrophes will not bring this world to ruin. As you grow in spirit, you will realize how preposterous this idea is. I do not believe the Father is inclined to destroy a perfectly good planet, or to allow his hungry crying suffering children, whose pleas for help have touched the Father and touched all in Nebadon and many beyond Nebadon, these cries of suffering are validation that you have paid heavy dues, you have suffered already. You are working for spiritual peace, you are asking, you will receive, indeed are receiving incremental openings of energy which allow incremental openings of your perception of truth, appreciation of beauty, desire to live in goodness. These energy openings can cause disruptive and nonsensical actions which you would consider marks of insanity. Indeed, if you look around, while you also have trained yourselves to look at the positive examples of the Correcting Time, you will see many weird aberrations of people who seem to, as you say, have become very ìweirded out.î I say to you, you will be called upon to help many of these people regain their balance, regain their center, for they are floundering without the nucleus that holds the power structure together.
Without this anchoring heart of goodness, without the realization of the one God inside, many will fall to the various vices and self-indulgences and frustrations that lead to violence and conflict. These are your brothers and sisters. Help them to find this center within. This center within is the nucleus from which all grows. It is the flowering blossom of beauty. Nature encompasses lessons in every being, in every action, in every changing season. Much can be learned from an acorn. From a seed. From a cat. Much can be learned from the earth, and the earth itself combined with the stillness can become a powerfully energizing influence. Find these pockets of energy in the stillness. Keep your tank filled because you never know what tomorrow may bring.
What opportunity to be of service. And if you have been a slackard in energizing your spiritual self, you will often not be prepared to confront the one in suffering, the one who attacks you, the pitiful beggar in the street. The one whose eyes ask you for compassion and help as you walk on by. It is the stillness that energizes, this is the place to go for powerful illuminating energies, incremental additional elements of truth and beauty and goodness to fill and permeate your soul. And as you are filled to overflowing, as your purification reaches levels for which you can feel a peaceful satisfaction, then you will be called upon for service which relates directly to your talents and skills.
I know this is perhaps a compilation of much you have heard before. But in the rearranging of information and the various combinings, I pray that my lesson and my insights and perspectives have been helpful to you. And that you will take them for your consideration into your moral and spiritual fabric, and I will be pleased and gratified if you make this part of you.
Thank you for listening. I am overjoyed to have the opportunity to work with the courageous mortals of Urantia, a special place, for which I volunteered and was genuinely excited upon receiving this assignment. For of all places in Nebadon, this is the where we would want to be. And we would hope that you are happy to be here too. Peace to all of you and good night.
THE MISSION: A PERSONAL EXPERIENCE Hal Bynum
I didn't git a whole lot of schoolhousin' an I habn' never been blessed, or cursed, with a whole lot of vision, an I never could divine underground water with a forked stick, or predict long-term trends, or prophesy, or talk in tongues, or read chicken guts, or tea leaves or handle snakes without gittin' bit. I'm just a common ol, everyday kind of a feller that grew up out in the country, or maybe didn't grow up, and I'm the last one to try to make a bunch of profound pronouncements about this mission. About the only way I can be of any use to you today, is if I tell you about my personal experience with this teaching mission and what it's done to me - and for me.
I was smokin' dope with a jazz musician about twenty five years ago, tellin' him about this spiritual experience I'd had recently which had begun what I could only refer to as "being born again". That was not a phrase I had ever cared for, having been an atheist most of my life, but it was the only term that seemed to fit the weird metamorphosis that was slinging me around at the time. He listened patiently and then said, "I think you're ready for the Urantia Book."I was open and I was searching, so when he brought me the book, I read it. I immediately believed it, I never doubted it and I began spreadin' it like a wild man. The seraphim must have made it work because I was all ego and crazy-eyed
preacher, grabbin' people by the front of their shirts an' makin' em listen. Clumsy efforts that work, because it's the Father's will that they work. The effort is ours, the results belong to the Supreme - Take a load off Annie.
However! I was a drunk and a dope fiend and I couldn't grow until I gave up my pursuit of unreality. This took around twenty years of delving deeper into the secrets of the universe and God's great reality on the one hand, and delving deeper into the unreality that is the torturous life of a person trying to escape from adult responsibilities through the consumption of alcohol and other drugs. I once heard a recovering alcoholic refer to this condition as, "having a mind full of God and a belly full of booze".
Next January it will be eight years since that phase of my life (or non-life) ended. I was about a week from dying when, sometime between midnight and dawn, I spent three hours grappling with the decision of whether I wanted to live or not. My celestial artisan, Daphne, has since told me "not withstanding the great importance of your eternal relationship with Rebecca, the most important person in your life will always be your son, Christopher. He saved your soul."I didn't want to live, but I couldn't leave a mess like that for him to deal with all his life. That tipped the scales and after the struggle was over, and I lay in bed soaked with sweat and exhausted, inside my head I heard the words, "Now - feed my sheep."
About a year and a half later, I was sitting on the floor in Rebecca's basement in Salt Lake City, as Ham said, "Long have I watched you, my son." Less than a year after that, Rebecca and I were married and working with my beloved teacher, Ian, and Daphne, the artisan who has been with me since I was an infant, as we put together an album which will be released on Warner Brothers Records the fifteenth of September. Ham is Rebecca's teacher and as he has said, "a father to Rebecca," and so I guess he's my father-in-law. He is the teacher of our Sunday night meetings and a voice of wisdom to many people who receive his messages on the internet, thanks to David Schlundt.
Nearly all of my life, I've been totally preoccupied with my own comfort, trying to arrange things to where I could relax and be comfortable. Rich men keep grabbing money and buying laws to feed ravenous egos in an attempt to exalt themselves and exclude others, hoping it will eventually bring them comfort. Hitler killed millions of people in an attempt to control the world. He was trying to get comfortable enough to sleep at night. His father had beat him and scared him when he was a child.
What we're really searching for is peace, but peace comes from inside, not from a shrewd and relentless adjustment and manipulation of outer circumstance. Whatever the drug, whether it's alcohol, pills, powder, smoke or sex or fame, it will not and cannot bring peace. Only conformity to the cosmos, a whole-hearted attempt to align oneself with the trend and the purpose of the Universe, brings peace, the inner peace that allows happiness and growth of the soul.
This great Universal purpose is the unending, untiring, unfettered bestowal of Love. Love, in the simplest of terms is unselfishness. Love is giving, Love is sharing. The bestowal of Love creates that perfect order which so-called civilization has always promised, but has never delivered into the hands of frightened mankind. Big business craves good order which is the necessary climate for the efficient accumulation of wealth. On every evolutionary planet there is a phase referred to as the industrial age and the great disease of the industrial age is materialism.
A planet is a platform which provides man with a place to stand, a brief opportunity to get a glimpse of life and a taste of life, as he peers nearsightedly out into the vast unfathomable universe, and begins to make the decision "to be or not to be". The decision to Love God and to embrace an eternity of endless striving and serving in order to become more and more like that perfect personality who is the source of all things that exist or will ever exist.
Lucifer became enamored of himself and chose a path of cleverness and pretense and caused the spiritual circuits to be temporarily shut off. As a result, our planet was one of those cast into darkness and isolation. If you put a tournequet on your upper arm and leave it long enough, the lower arm and the hand will rot. Mankind is confused, befuddled and deathly afraid because of 200,000 years of deprivation we might refer to as a shortage of God. I have never met anyone on this planet who did not have low self-esteem. The myriad methods and means of covering and compensating for this condition are germaine to and even tantamount to the ostensible or outwardly perceived personality itself.
The only cure for this spiritually debilitating disease is for mankind to become aware of and finally to experience the infinite and absolute Love that the Divine Father has for each of His children. That God loves us so much and places such a high value on us makes it obvious that we are extremely valuable. This is the only antidote for low self-esteem. I believe that as workers in the teaching mission, our most important task is to introduce and inculcate in the minds and hearts of troubled and fear driven Urantians, this awareness of God's Love. We can't do this by preaching it or even by teaching it, we have to live it. If we Love one another the way the Master has and does Love us, then people will observe this dynamic and unusual phenomenon and be impelled to find out what is the secret of this sublime patience and tolerance. In this manner will the virus of fatherly and brotherly Love be introduced into the consciousness stream of mankind. That's great! But ... how do we do it? We must become as little children in order to enter the kingdom of reality - the kingdom of Love. I believe that the only real enemy we have - the only thing that stands between us and our fellow man, and us and God is - the ego. The ego is the entity-like mechanism which represents selfishness in the human consciousness. The ego is a lie. It stands on a teetering scaffolding of fear and screams, "Are you gonna let em do that to us?!!" "Who does that monkey think he is?!!"
The ego is a mechanism for personal individuation, but as individuals, we are an integral part of a divine or unified totality. So the balance must be struck and the representations of the ego are necessary. But when animal fear is the engine that drives this quazi-real influence, then self centeredness, that ugliest and most deadly of diseases, renders the soil of the soul untillable and barren of spiritual growth.
How do we silence the ego, or at least take away its bullhorn or megaphone? How do we become impervious to the venal commands and salacious entreaties of this imposter who wants us to masquerade as an adult and assume power and control as a means of gaining selfish comfort? The only way we can free ourselves from the bondage and slavery of the ego is to become as a little child. This may sound simple and easy, but it is not easy and it is not automatic. We cannot, by force of will, accomplish this transformation. It's kind of a catch 22 situation; to become as a child we must sacrifice the ego, but to sacrifice the ego, we must become as a little child. Like anything else that's really difficult, we must allow the Indwelling Thought Controller to do it for us. Only by identification with the Father Fragment may we become as a little child. A little child is dependent on its loving parents. A little child trusts and is not suspicious or conniving. A little child has no authority and is not critical or judgemental. A little child avoids isolation and knows nothing of self-exaltation.
When the day's struggles are over, the little child sleeps the sleep of innocence and knows the peace that passes all understanding. You must become as a little child in order to enter the Kingdom of God, the Kingdom of Love, the Kingdom of Reality. The Kingdom of Innocence.

TOPIC: Annual Meeting Transcript
MESSAGE FROM HAM AND MOTHER SPIRIT
HAM: Greetings, again, friends, this is a time of rejoicing, of excitement, of wonderful confusion. In future times, on other worlds, you will look back on this time with a fondness that is unmatched in your ascension career. This is a time of that sublime uncertainty that tentative awareness that point right before you dive in the swimming pool. When you look down in anticipation and excitement. This is that time which will determine the course of your future careers and yes, will influence the course of Urantian history forever. This is a time of great decisions, of blind faith, as they say, of jumping into the unknown, and children we watch you with fondness and parental solicitude over your first forays out into the world as transformed beings. There is a message from the Mother Spirit.
NEBADONIA: Dear Ones. I am your true motherly source, your true motherly anchor. I watch you with the closeness and the love of an anxious mother only I have no anxiety. I have no doubts. I know your hearts. You belong to me. When you are tired, think of your mother bringing you refreshment and rest. When you are unhappy, think of your mother giving you encouragement. When you go out in the world and see some of the sufferings of your brethren, remember, their mother goes with them, also. Their mother is there.
And children, open your hearts to receive my ministry. Open your hearts to receive the seraphic ministry that is constantly surrounding you. Open your hearts to receive the motherly love that is as strong and as pure as Fatherly love. When you reach for Michael's hand with one hand, reach for mine with the other. I am like a gentle breeze blowing through your souls. I am like a soft rain reviving the thirsty soil. I am like a green leaf, tender and supple and growing. I am like the sunshine, soothing and life giving. Come to me. I do hear you. I do hear your prayers. Come to me. And allow my love to soothe your aching hearts and to wash away your tears. Always remember and think of my love for when you do, I am there. I am with you.
HAM: There are others who are desiring to speak with you in farewell. Until we are together again, understand that my love, my prayers are with you as well. Farewell.
Note from the Nashville group: On behalf of all of us here in Nashville, I want to thank all of you who took the time and made the trip out here to make our conference a success. These transcripts are not a complete record of all that took place here, some tapes were lost or didn't record clearly. I apologize to those who transmitted and who don't find their record here. I hope that these transcripts will bring back fond memories of the few days that you spent with us and that you all have a happy holiday season.
Until we meet again, as Ham would say, our love and prayers are with you.
July 17 - 18, 1998
Calvin T/R from the Nashville Teaching Mission Conference
MESSAGE FROM ABRAHAM
My friends, and fellow co-workers in the kingdom of our Father and spreaders of the good news, I am Abraham. I wish to add a few words to those of my fellow associates. It is indeed sometimes confusing in your daily tasks of knowing what direction you must take to be about your Father's business--as has been shared with you, you each are becoming quite attuned to your inner guide, our Father's Will. Some [are] more attuned than others, of course, and this level of attunement is based on some factors.
First, your inner desire, which desire has led you each to this mission. And second, your faith which assists you in letting go of your mortal patterns and your traditions and your fears which does bind each mortal, especially, in these isolated worlds. Thirdly, your commitment to be about your Father's business; your commitment to serve your fellows; your commitment to learn the lessons; and, your commitment to both receive Michael's hard truths and to assist in delivering them.
So, those three factors have exhibited themselves in your lives and hence you are here seeking fellowship and instruction and share love and seek love. And I tell you, my mortal friends, having been so recently as you, I most heartfully commend you. But it does come with its confusing moments, doesn't it? Frustrations, disappointments, dashed hopes and expectations, misunderstandings, miscommunications, and toothaches. These are just a very few examples of mortal living in your world.
Now. Let me help in putting your minds at ease concerning your mission role and participation. It would be most helpful as Welmek has presented so well, to seek the Master Teacher, Spirit of Truth, and your indwelling Father's direction to learn these lessons of teaching. Yes. And remember, those experiences which you incorporate as truth are those experiences and truths which you are indeed qualified to share with your fellows. Otherwise, yes, you are theorizing and intellectualizing.
But to relay your heartfelt experience and your joy of understanding this experience and sharing its meaningful value does make for a most fruitful reception to the hearer. In your confusing days, please relax by whatever method you have experienced that works and seek communion with your Father. Seek Michael's experiential understanding also. Seek our Universe Mother's assistance in opening your mind. If you remain dedicated as you are, and committed to being about your Father's business, how can your creator parents withhold from you? Yes, your creative creator parents. Many are in service beyond even my perception who assist in doing Father's bidding in your behalf. Have you not recognized those coincidental happenings around you, those timely experiences that coincide with the lesson, an insight received in a song, words from a book, enlightenment from your fellows that helps to bring about an experiential value meaning to the lesson?
This interaction between we as teacher guides and yourselves is awe-inspiring to even ourselves as to how our Creative Mother, our Creative Father, our Creative Brother, interact with all hosts of heaven for your behalf, their children, in bringing about experiential understanding. This, my fellows is great cause to worship. Is great cause to adore our wonderful parents. So, in those frustrating moments, find ways to calm and relax which does suit you. Be creative and open for new ways, ask for assistance and commune with your parents, and be observant of Father's timely answers without any expectations.
Your expectations are a great hindrance to you and oh, do I remember well, how many times my aspirations and hopes were dashed and how blessed I was to have understood this in my mortal years. And yes, these lessons and dashings continue beyond mortal life. Do not think we do not have struggles and disagreements among us for we surely are individuals with differing opinions and understandings. So please remember your human-ness and have patience with yourselves for you, my friends, are allowed to make many many mistakes, stumblings, and enjoy the stubbed toes, hurt egos. This, my friends, is what so many who observe and assist you did not get to experience. These are not hardships, these are Father's creative experiences for you.
I would ask you to imagine now in this city of Nashville a blackout at midnight wherein you as an average mortal would be scurrying around in the city. Where, my friends, would you go if it was a total blackout and hard to find your way? Would you not head for any light? A room down the block with a light on? Now picture, if you will, a light in a little room upon every block where people seek to find shelter from the darkness. You my fellows have already understood what I mean, in that you are those lights upon each block, and each room has a different experiential light to share.
Your varied experiences have pretty well covered a broad base of human living, and those in this teaching mission are ready to assist every weary traveler seeking shelter and comfort according to your varied experiences. The Indwelling Father within them does assist them to which light to seek for their necessary growth, just as you have also been enlightened and directed. This lesson, this visualization, is one which will spread worldwide until the city is lightened, the nation is lighted, the planet is lightened, the system is lightened, and all Father's children are enlightened. It seems slow in mortal living, yes, but these lights coming on to those who assist this world, are coming on at record pace. No period of earth's history has experienced so much preparation and enlightenment as these people have these past few decades upon Urantia. And you, my fellows, can take great acceptance in your humble roles as teachers of that truth which you have experienced. I am now taking my leave and welcome you to this night's gathering of entertainment. I thank you for your attendance at this conference and for your participation in every form which has made this an experiential conference. My love is with you each. My core students. I love you. I love working with you. There is nothing about you which is unlovable. Shalom.
TR: Willie Verhoff
My children, I am Master Machiventa. I use the term master only because I believe you would recognize me as a master. I feel as welcome as a master, and wish to share with you all of the delights of my heart and my being as I've been referred to frequently here as elsewhere as one of your master teachers. Of course I am and I am pleased and honored to do so, because as you know we have a rich and mighty history. That history which has been brought to us by all of your inner beings, in actuality.
It is all of our inner beings that are part of that heart and center, the Original Source and Center, that is each of us. While you may tend to look at each of us as teachers and as masters, in actuality we are all masters and we are all teachers. There is no elevation of "greater than" in the kingdom as you more than likely know. But I want to reinforce this with you, that it is we all, or all of we, that make up the entirety, the embodiment, the totality of the Christ Being. It is in that, that we are all the Christ and that is our purpose, that is our intention and that is our being. So, in that, please recognize that the wishes and the goodness and the entirety of all of creation and all of the cosmos is, in reality, each and every one of us. It's a remarkable sight as all of you have many insights into your presence of being, that just imagine the pristine beauty of what, for example, you would imagine me to be as has already been described, but imagine that as one of the most, me as the example, as one of the most beautiful sights you had imagined.
Again, this reference here is to only use me as I have been used as an example. To picture me, say, for presentation purposes, as a column of clear, crystal beauty, a column of whatever size you want to picture. And now imagine this column of crystal beauty shimmering in its clarity, the shape and configuration of it, each dimension or each facet a reflection of beauty in its own right, shimmering in that rainbow color. Now picture that in the backdrop or the setting of equal crystals, or innumerable crystals - a crystal room, if you will, a crystal palace. So see that, for example, as you envision that in your mind, that crystal that you see me as is only a closeup picture of yourself as it is in reality. But each of us is that reflection of the clarity and the transmission capability and the reflective beauty of what that crystal column is all about. So crystal is a magnificent element as you probably know. I use that example because it is so true as to what we are. But notice in that too, that we are all the same. Different orders, different creatures, different beings of expression, but my real point is that in the integrity of that crystal column is the clarity, the beauty, the original nature of the Father of us all. That we are simply reflections of that mighty beauty that exists because the Father is that crystal column within us. He is that original Source, He is that, that which crystal has found as a marvelous vehicle for transmission, He is that, that is. So imagine if you will, just concentrate on that as a source of being and a source of your light because that if the light that you are of the original source. So in all of that, just picture that, and then add to that your own sound. Can you imagine just for a moment, I'll stop for a moment, to add that sound then to this orchestration of crystal in this palace. Take a moment and just listen to that sound and then I'll add to that.
Hopefully, you got a good sense of what that is. Imagine that in all of that collective beauty, imagine that at the time when in the demonstration of that, that whenever you are speaking of the nature and the centeredness and the originality of the Father and all of the hierarchy that is thereby represented. This is only meant to be a helpful hint for you in terms of visualization of who you are and what we are about. Use this as an illustration to in all of your future endeavors in speaking about the father and the consequent brotherly love that exists within and among you. Picture this as just an example of what it will be like in the day, not too far into the future, when each of you and each of us will have the opportunity to actually experience the brotherly love that exists in the same nature as the crystal palace.
When that it hits the point of the hum of the unity, and imagine that, in an enveloping expansive way into all of the ethers. The one message I want to reinforce with you, and it starts with the one, that is the one source and center of all being, is the all in allness. If you can keep that in mind as a central site and source of the inner source of all light and all development in terms of encouraged recognition of truth as we speak it. Focus on this particular picture as an actual demonstration of experiential truth and love in action. So I truly appreciate your dedication, we all do and you have my greatest and humblest, most beautiful of blessings. You are great and wonderful, each and all, in all of your ways. There is no limitation, there is no separation, and there certainly is no one who is greater than the other. It is all a matter of
So in that I wish you well, all ood tidings to all good seekers, and wish each and every one and blesseach and every one as if you were my child, my own. Because it is the love of the Father that presents all of us the
opportunity to dance in eternity and we welcome each and every one of you as seekers along the way as you are beautiful and honest and sincere children of most heavenly Father. So I appreciate your opportunity, if anyone had questions I would be happy to entertain them for a brief while.
Calvin: (paraphrased) I have enjoyed my relationship with Abraham so wonderfully and He is such a master teacher as well who has meant so much in my life, and he speaks of his relationship with you as being similar. I just wanted to thank you for bringing us Abraham and thank you for your wonderful teachings as well.
MACHIVENTA: You are most welcome. We have more to share with you than you can actually know. The illustration of the crystal was not just a pretty picture, but for you to be aware on many levels of what we want you to be in tune with and that attunement is another great demonstration of the element of crystal, because as you know, it is a tuning element as well. It is a fine item, so we want you to be aware at all levels that we are with you and bring you every opportunity to develop yourselves as the outward representation of the god-force that's within you. So we bring you every opportunity to do that. There, as you know, are many and countless illustrations of truth. All of the students that I had in Salem were excellent representations of the beings that were available at that time to set the momentum to go forward in terms of the developed truth as we know it today and as it will be known in the future. But Abraham certainly was an apex student. As you had read, there was some difficulty in terms of his own ambition and what he had set out to do and what his intentions were. But, it was for that reason that a personality of his stature was truly necessary to be able to bring that wild kingdom into submission, so to speak, to get the attention of those at the time, to be able to more or less hit them over the head, get their attention and them move forward in terms of enlightenment. He is a remarkable individual and I am happy to make that available to you as well as all other teachers who are available to you here and henceforth. So you are most welcome.
[Susan Kimsey asks about crop circles and whether she should be pursuing the subject.]
MACHIVENTA: The crop circles are an outward manifestation of higher truth made manifest. These are developments of celestial beings who are world travelers, or actually, intergalactic travelers who have been part of your planet for a long time. They are involved in many higher truths. They are of other-dimensional status. So that they are not three dimensional beings or beings of the third dimension, but rather those dimensions which exist beyond your own physical dimension, of course. But they've been involved for a long time because there has been the time expectation, as time begins to change as is it right now, it's all part of the evolutionary cycle.
Time and space as you know it will change. Just picture, for example, the ethers of being, or the ethers of space, as it continues to roll and to expand into further development. Those evolutionary, or ether type movements, bring along with it dimensional expansion so that one's mind will expand in its ability to encompass more along the dimensional pathway. So beings who are at higher levels of dimension have transport ability, and have ships that are able to make this possible and are friendly intermediaries of emissaries, if you will, of their dimensional worlds that are here to help you in terms of higher consciousness. So where their role, at this point, is interacted is in terms of visualization of how they can help show how the planet can be affected by their thought processes.
And similar to that discussion yesterday, if you notice the outward sign of their impression upon your world, it is art related. There's so much related to sacred geometry that your world is only beginning to break the code of, that this is part of their mission, to help share with you the mystery and the code and the wholeness or oneness of sacred geometry. So in any one line that is drawn, any one dot that exists, there is no way that you can help yourself, but to go to the original Source as always, as the All-in-Allness of All That Is.
Meaning that, take one dot, and from that dot, all else is made - a line, a circle, a geometric figure, etc. It's just the expansiveness. So that's one illustration that I'll give you of the role that is played with these higher beings, in terms of their wanting to share with you that it's the interrelatedness, the interdependence that we all have upon one another as all beings of the one. So I hope that helps a little bit, I'm not sure if you were looking for more specifics than that, but that, I believe, presents the why and wherefore of that phenomenon.
Norman: Do you consider yourself to be personally present on the planet at this time, and if so, are you incarnate?
MACHIVENTA: I will be physically present as your planetary sovereign when the energy levels have risen to the point that unity has begun. As you know, you are in the evolutionary stages of developing the oneness. It's at the point of development not too far down the road, that when there is enough awareness at the psychic or soul level, the inner oneness knowing level, throughout the world, and bless you Norman, you're helping to do this, when there is a unified level of awareness tothe point that every individual, again points on the map, every individual within the surface of the earth knows, and this doesn't have to be everyone, but so long as you can pinpoint individuals around the world, when there are enough individuals around the world who know the value of the oneness of their being.
And finally recognize that as Jesus illustrated, the point being, that each individual knows that they are a child of God, and that they reflect their oneness with the Father, and to incorporate their being with that of the Father's will, when there are enough people who know the oneness of being, then there will be a shimmering presence, a sheet of awareness around the globe. Imagine it. A white see-through spirit enveloping oneness of mist, of unification, at that point the opportunity will be made available for my presence as your planetary sovereign. So my absence in the mean time is nothing more than the need for the workers to bring about that level of awareness in order for the transformation of your planet into the oneness of being presence in order for the transformation to continue to unfold.
At that time, the levels of awareness will simply multiply by the presence of more than one believer and more than one person knowing their oneness of being, the multiplication effect will then be dramatic. So the time of unification and Light and Life as we know it to be elsewhere, is definitely in formation. It's a long process, it's nevertheless full of hope, light and primarily love. I welcome you all to that particular charge, as the emissary of the one, to help us bring that about. There is no purpose in life, there is no intention, there is no reason for being that is any greater than that.
So again, all are equal representations of the Father and I only encourage you to recognize that above all else. That each is a magnificent representation of the oneness of all. And I just thrill at the opportunity for each of you to take that to heart and to totally celebrate it because it is certainly celebrational. So we are already one, of course, and my presence will be made known, but it isn't as essential as you knowing right now that you are building that white sheet of
love around the planet.
Stella: I want to thank you for addressing the people at Glen Ivy a few weeks ago through me, but I am concerned that the Foundation doesn't recognize the teaching mission and I wondered if you had any words that could shed light on this subject.
MACHIVENTA: I was present, and I thank you for asking that question. Along the same line of what we've been discussing, the separation that has existed within the various levels of the Urantia movement, are truly unfortunate. It shows - as it has shown in many other developments of human progress - whenever there is a central source of information and essentially radical transformation to bring a thought process, the status quo, out of the dark and into the light. Take any situation you can think of in modern times, or even pre-modern times, whenever that particular process is brought to completion in terms of the original idea and then the action to bring it into reality takes place, then basically, pardon the expression, “all hell breaks loose”.
The purification of a central idea and then the action to bring it into reality, it would seem to most people that once that reality demonstration is brought about, I'm thinking particularly of the American Revolution for example, what a radical idea that was, that once there was the collective mass, the energy strong enough to move that forward out of theory and into reality and hence all of the dynamic personalities that were made available for that to become a reality. As you already know, that was no mistake, or simple happenstance, or coincidence, but the dynamic individuals that were here and elsewhere to make that possible is an actual illustration of the freedom of being that the principle of America is, is a fine example of what I am talking about as hence you are today, and all of the other brothers and sisters that you will meet along the way.
So, seen in the human experience is, once a development takes hold to that extent, it means having to then level the playing field to get all of the dimensions of political thought and holds on the dynamic development of truth. It'll take a while for that to level out to the point where the original point then becomes the prevailing pure thought that can be recognized and adhered to. So you are already seeing that take place in terms of the various factions that have existed and that have warred over, could be point of illustration, over simply the color of the writing pen. Why create a war over something that really doesn't matter. But nevertheless, the irregularities, the impurities, so to speak, have to be brought to the surface as you would in the purification of gold, for example. The impurities come to the top in order for the real element to be there in total beauty.
So yes, the ultimate recognition at the point, for example, that I speak of, in terms of when the white sheet of awareness is surrounding this globe that you inhabit and the surrounding spheres in which this particular planetary system exists, and don't stop to think then that that particular development won't have positive ramification upon Satania and the rest of Nebadon and Orvonton etc., what a dynamic, wonderful development we're in. So perhaps I am using to illustrate my verbosity, forgive that if you will, but I love to demonstrate the actual development that takes place in terms of from the one dot, all else develops. Just the dynamic dimensions of what you're doing cannot be overstated. I hope that answers you question.
Student: I have been concerned lately about the disappearance of species and especially what is happening to frogs, genetic mutations etc. Could you shed a little light on this?
MACHIVENTA: There is definitely a correlation between disappearance of species and its planetary cause. The real causal effect of the height of pollution has been brought to most people's awareness. The unadulterated abuse of the planet that had occurred during the industrial era and that occurred primarily during the nineteen sixties or nineteen seventies in terms of just all out, unrestricted "whatever happens, happens," is beginning to be reversed in the sense that the awareness is there for reversal of that unadulterated pollution of the planet.
However, the total awareness or consciousness of people whoyet pollute, has not risen to the level of common knowledge, it's not taken into their psyche yet. I'm talking in general terms. While, for example, the younger generations are fully aware and have incorporated within their psyches the necessity to have cleanliness and anti-pollution being a definite part of their centeredness of being. There are still enough individuals in the world, in industrial settings throughout the world, and the situation in the rainforest is certainly nothing to be taken lightly, as an illustration. There's enough pollution yet in the everyday business world and environment, that it is truly a concern.
The time will come when those who are in regular types of industry, that produce everything that's used from the chairs you are sitting on to the ceiling tiles, will be aware enough to the point where, as I was speaking of earlier, when the level of consciousness is raised high enough, that everything that will be made, everything that will be utilized, will be
made and utilized from the vantage point of “how does this fit into the oneness of all that is. How even is its chemical composition in synch or at one with everything that will be used.” So the totality of everything that is made and all materials that are used to create will be brought into a central purpose, so that all is in combination or in synchronicity with all that is.
So, I know that sounds like it may not be answering the question, or that it is pie in the sky, but in reality it is showing that it is the developmental process that is taking place. As far as particular species are concerned, the frog is a unique creature. It is a creature of particular spiritual worth and value in that it presents truth to its beholder. Whenever a frog is made present, it's bringing to you a higher spiritual truth, asking you to look at the spirituality of and the truthfulness of the situation that is presented. So that the elimination of the frog from many locations in this world, is certainly a loss factor and whenever any one part of the geometric puzzle or the biological ecosystem is damaged and lost, it is certainly a loss to the entirety.
But while it looks like there are diminishing representative presences made known in terms of fewer frogs being manifested in this world, its potential loss is of great concern, of course, but there is a message there in the meantime that lets us know that there is a higher truth being called forth. So while all exists at the same time, in real terms there is no lineal demonstration of time along the path that the moment we share right now is the moment that always is, always was. My point is, that while it appears at the moment that there is reduction in the population of frogs in any number of species, it's simply pointing out to the world of common consciousness right now, that we are in a developmental phase of losing ground, as it would appear to be. Losing ground in terms of consciousness of the common, accepted, known realities as we see them, of slowly melting or developing into the backdrop of reality as it is. Meaning, that for there being fewer frogs, it would make the demonstration observable to those who can observe it. That the reality as you know it, the social consciousness as you know it, is slowly slipping away and
eroding and fading into the backdrop.
So that in its place comes forth the higher truth and the higher reality and the higher consciousness of that which is. So even in that the transformation, the evolution of what is occurring on the planet will ultimately cleanse itself and that while certain species may be lost, it's their contribution to the wholeness of the planet in its developmental process that will eventually bring forth a replacement manifestation of the truth of the frog in new forms, new species, new opportunities for growth and unity. So this is an opportunity for increased awareness which I wished to share with you and hopefully that answers your question as
John Creger: I was wondering about the Melchizedek Universities, how the planning is progressing and how they will effect education in general on this planet.
MACHIVENTA: I appreciate your question. It's multi-faceted, of course, but it all fits in with that which we have already presented today. That the Melchizedek Universities, which are part of the morontia world development, has been the specialty of the Melchizedek order, to make those higher truths of the Melchizedek principles, which I was here to illustrate, which is part of the overall development of humankind as a truth representation, or in other words, the truth of the order of Melchizedek as teachers of the truth, is this world's, this universe's, this super universe's, for example, school of truth. So we are happy teachers within that realm. It's an ominous, yet beautiful opportunity to serve creation. As the developments take place within your world, it will naturally, as everything that you see, as it is right now, meaning it terms of principle and structure, as you already know, is currently a manifestation of higher reality as you know it, in terms of hierarchy, order, institutions reflecting that which is on the cosmic scale. So that as the development takes place and the refinement takes place within each individual, those institutions which currently exist and will continue to slowly make each of the individuals within those institutions begin to make the transformation of consciousness, there will naturally become the attunement to raising one's level of consciousness to the outward world so that it will be one in sinc with everything else that is. So that the new philosophy, the new intention, the new order, if you will, of being able to have the oneness of all be represented in all that is done, it will naturally bring about the development and escalation of the consciousness level, to be demonstrated in all walks of life, in all institutions. So it will be that influence which is the Melchizedek teaching or the teachings of the Melchizedek Universities, which will naturally make its transition in terms of demonstrated knowledge and particular knowledge that will be made known at that time, which will be part of your institutional setting and the structure of what will become as is, or will become the new reality that you will know as replacement of what you know today. In other words, it will be the “as is” reality at that time.
Moe Davis: I'm always struck by how much the bad news of the world tends to dominate in the press and in our thoughts. Do you have any comments on this?
MACHIVENTA: Good question. The primary reason for that is fear. The elimination of fear is the greatest challenge you have ahead of you. And it is simply, sounds easier than accomplished, but with faith, which is knowing, there is no fear, as you know. So taking that concept of who you are in your reality and moving forward without fear of who you are; if that alone weren't enough to propel you, to give you the energy to go forward to proclaim in a simple way, I mean, this doesn't have to be mountain to shouting, but in a simple way demonstrating who you are in terms of “have you heard, have you received, do you know the good news? Here is a book which is not your representation of God on earth, but take the knowledge that it is and etch in your heart and grow in the knowledge of who you are.” Then the good news reaches every open ear, and more particularly every open heart, that they are a being of God, that they are a representation, a physical representation of the spiritual reality of a representation of the One.
So, what does that have to do with bad news and oranges, or the price of tea in China? Simple, in true analysis, what does humanity tend to do but to disclaim everything and to call it a name and to discredit it before it has a chance to affect them? In other words, the cynicism that exits in this world is critical to say the least. Funny term, critical, but it is at a critical level that people are in their understandings of who they are because they don't know who they are in reality. That their social awareness, life as they know it in all dimensions that they are aware of is always at threat to them in terms of what they know within themselves to be true. In other words, short term analysis of that is that, because people do not feel welcomed, primarily within themselves, because they do not yet know who they are. As soon as they know who they are, they will certainly feel welcome with themselves, and then hence, everyone else.
The current state of affairs is such that they feel threatened at all levels. So if there is any kind of good news or any kind of positiveness that comes to them, because they feel unwelcome within themselves, they have no seat of authority, if you will. Picturing the heart, they have no seat of authority with which to receive goodness, so hence they reject it, so hence it creates a cynical film or skin over them, that would have to criticize and reject anything that's good because the reception of the good is a threat to themselves.
So hence, everything has to be analyzed, criticized, and put into its proper place of "good bag ñ bad bag," if you will. So it is just a state of consciousness that has people being analytical of all that is for fear of transforming themselves, to become part of the oneness. If that helps any. So in simple analysis, if you'll notice how it all keeps coming back to the oneness. So the opportunity for sharing and the opportunity for demonstrating the good news as you know it is immense. The opportunity is enormous and the beauty and the opportunities for sharing are limitless. So recreating the awareness of the oneness that you are after this conference is finished, to be able to simply share that in the truth and the honesty and integrity of who you are, will be manifestation enough for those who you speak to about the truth of the book and the purpose of it being, as the Master illustrated, was to do the Father's will after recognizing who you are, and the living out of that will bring about this white sheet of protective love that make the transformation for further development and evolution into the oneness become even more real.
So I hope all of this helps, and if it is of any help for you in the future to recollect what it was that I was speaking of, again I take you back into that crystalline room, the crystal palace. And in that light, in that love, in that humming unity of being I shed my happy thoughts with you and bring forth all love and light that exists within my realm and yours which is rapidly becoming one, because it is a matter of consciousness. I welcome you to the love and the light and reinforce within you the love of the Father that is. Let the love of the Father-That-Is ring true to every mountain top, to every village, to every hamlet in between, that each and every individual that is, is a unique manifestation of the oneness of the Father. So let all peace ring true in each hearer's ears and may the love and the light of the Master which was before you, live true in your heart and may the beauty of the realm last forever. I depart, I leave you in the love and light of the Master before us and know that all is well. Amen.
REVELATION AT A REST STOP
ME AND SISTER RACHEL AND JUMPER CABLE JIMMY
HEADED FOR ALABAMA SMOKIN' LIKE A CHIMNEY
ABOUT TWO JOINTS AND 30 MILES DOWN THE ROAD
JIMMY'S EYES BUGGED OUT LIKE A TROMPED ON TOAD
HE WAS MAKIN' FUNNY SOUNDS AND HE HAD A GOOFY GRIN
RACHEL SAID, "JIMMY'S GITTIN' 'IM A REVELATION AGAIN!"
I FINALLY FOUND A REST STOP AND LAID HIM ON A TABLE
HELD HIS HEAD BACK AN' POURED HIM FULL OF JACK BLACK LABEL
HE TOOK A DEEP BREATH AND COMPLETELY FILLED HIS LUNGS
THEN HE STOOD STRAIGHT UP AND STARTED TALKIN' IN TONGUES
HE SAID, "LORD I CAN SEE IT JUST AS PLAIN AS CAN BE
JULIUS CAESAR EATIN' WATERMELLON AND BLACK-EYED PEAS
AND SPITTIN' OUT THE SEEDS ON THE GRAVES OF SLAVES
CONQUERIN' THE WHOLE WORLD JUST TO GET A LITTLE PRAISE
I SEE FOUR BLACK HORSES EATIN' COTTONSEED MEAL
AND FORTY LEFT-HANDED RED HEADS WORKIN' IN A HOT CORNFIELD
NOTHIN'S EVER HAPPENED THAT HASN'T HAPPENED UP TO NOW
AND IF IT KEEPS ON RAININ' IT'S GONNA BE TOO WET TO PLOW"
HE FELL BACK ON THE TABLE, A WHOOPIN' AN' A STRAININ'
AND RIGHT ABOUT THEN, IT FINALLY STOPPED RAININ'
BLUE HAIRED LADIES STARTED CRAWLIN' OUTTA CARS
PRAYIN' FOR THE VETERANS OF ALL THE FOREIGN WARS
THERE WAS A CARLOAD OF MONKS FROM SOUTH OF CORPUS CHRISTI
ON THE WAY TO CHICAGO, THEY'D STARTED DRINKIN' WHISKEY
THEY COMMENCED TO TALKIN' LATIN AND SHAKIN' LITTLE BEADS
AND AS I WATCHED THE CROWD GATHER, IT TURNED MY MIND TO GREED
SO I GRABBED RACHEL'S NECKLACE WHILE SHE HAD HER HEAD BOWED
TOOK HER WALMART PEARLS AND STARTED SELLIN' EM TO THE CROWD
(STICKIN' THE MONEY IN MY POCKET AND SINGIN' HYMNS REAL LOUD)
THERE WAS 50 SNAKE HANDLERS IN AN OLD SCHOOL BUS
DRINKIN' SACRIFICIAL WINE AND KICKIN' UP A FUSS
THEY STARTED UNLOADIN' FROM A DOOR IN THE BACK
AND THE NEXT THING YOU KNOW, THEY WAS ALL IN THE ACT
THE SNAKES GOT LOOSE AND PEOPLE STARTED INTO CLIMBIN'
WOMEN STARTED SCREAMIN' AND BABIES STARTED WHININ'
SOME BAPTISTS FROM BEAUMONT STARTED CLAPPIN' IN A RHYTHM
AND THE HEALERS AND THE HOOKERS WAS ALL CLAPPIN' WITH EM
I SOLD JIMMY'S SHOES AND SOME STUFF TO CURE A COUGH
AN' I SOLD RACHEL'S SWEATER, BUT SHE WOULDN'T TAKE IT OFF
WE HAD THE SOUTH-BOUND TRAFFIC BACKED UP TO MONTEAGLE
WHEN JIMMY STARTED BARKIN' AND BAYIN' LIKE A BEAGLE
HE JUMPED FROM THE TABLE TO THE MIDDLE OF THE MOB
AND LANDED ON A CRIPPLE NAMED KNOCK-KNEED BOB
BOB JUMPED UP A DANCIN' AND THROWED AWAY HIS CRUTCHES
CLAIMIN' HE WAS FINALLY FREED FROM THE DEVIL'S CLUTCHES
I'SE ABOUT TO TELL RACHEL, WAKE JIMMY FROM HIS STUPOR
WHEN I LOOKED INTO THE EYES OF A TALL STATE TROOPER
I TOLD HIM JIMMY HAS A FIT WHEN A RAIN BREAKS THE DROWTH
AN' WE'D JUST STOPPED TO FIND A STICK AN PUT IT IN HIS MOUTH
BACK ON THE HIGHWAY, RACHEL BLOWED IN JIMMY'S EAR
HE WOKE UP AN ASKED WHAT HAPPENED, SAID HIS MEMORY WASN'T CLEAR
I WINKED AT RACHEL AND I TOLD HIM HE'D JUST BEEN IN A DAZE
IF I'DA TOLD 'IM WHAT HAD HAPPENED, WE'DA HAD TO SPLIT THREE WAYS
