* Malvantra (Jonathan TR): It is a duty we hold to assure you
of your progress for, on this planet much effort in growth is
untutored, uncertainty is a large factor in your pursuits without
a suitable faculty of instructors to offer guidance. I would
speak to you about meaning and correctness and adaptability. I
am Malvantra. I have not shared with you of late, and I have
chosen to do so today.
You know of the phrase that the way is narrow. I would
offer a perspective on this. Let us take the imagery of a jigsaw
puzzle to illustrate my points. When you begin to assemble such
a puzzle, you may select from all pieces the first building
block. The potentials are great. Once a piece is selected, you
have narrowed the possibilities to a few adjacent ones. As this
selection process continues there is a broadening in the
potentials in which you can connect another piece. To those of
you who have begun your ascension you are at the stage of few
pieces hooked together. This is the reason for applying truth
discernment in order to find the appropriate and fundamental
pieces of your ascension career at this initial stage.
When the entire puzzle is assembled you have a correct
picture, but the process of assembling this picture may be under-
taken in many, many ways. This variableness is what gives
meaning to you; it individualizes in each person. Although the
destiny of all mortals is identical, the path, the process, is
wholly unique. This explains why you have many religions str-
essing different perspectives, holding sometimes opposing
viewpoints because these are snapshots in time of partially as-
sembled puzzles. In teaching, your purpose is to provide
meaningful content. The ideal of being perfectly correct, though
worthwhile, must be adapted to the present condition of the re-
ceiver. If you proceed to build your puzzle by assembling the
border first, pieces without a straight edge are not meaningful,
though in the end they are vital for the completion of the image.
Being able to adapt your message is serviceful to your fellows,
even if in your perspective it appears less correct. Correctness
in that perspective is not so much one of accuracy but one of
appropriateness. This method of teaching is the guideline we
adhere to in order to avoid revealing or requiring more than you
are capable of understanding.
Returning to the point of the narrow way, as you assemble
your jigsaw puzzle and the potentials for connections increase,
seeming to magnify, in the end it narrows down to final placement
of all pieces such that your destiny, your final destination, is
like your initial start. Both have few options to be what they
are. But between both extremes is the bulge of potentials that
might be actualized in your life, that characterize you as unique
from all other ascending personalities. What makes truth on your
level accurate is its meaning not the law of correctness, for it
is in the placement of the pieces that you grow. You have no box
cover at this point to reference your assembly. This ability to
adapt is important when you have subassemblies that need
repositioning to connect and complete portions. Each subassembly
may be correct in itself, and incorrect in its alignment with
other portions until the event arrives wherein the edge of
integration appears. I do not intend to downplay correctness,
only to amplify meaningful adaptability in the process of attain-
ing the correct and final result.
I hope this illustration is helpful when you encounter your
uncertainties and face isolated or lonely segments of your
journey, without guidance, without your box cover. I am willing
to dialogue with you at this time.
Evelyn: I realize this question is a tangent from what you
just discussed. I was listening to the book on tape where they
were talking about the universes swinging around the central
universe, the positions they are in and the eons of time it takes
for the universes to complete one circuit. It said something
about a system taking so long to get around or a subsequent one.
That suggests to me that a system could cease to exist, and there
would be a subsequent system. I didn't think that happened.
Light and Life is supposed to be a settled existence, so that
couldn't be it. What is meant by that?
* Malvantra: Until Light and Life is established in a system
temporal factors do play in continuing permanency or the lack of
existence. Sometimes physical energies are disrupted and new
systems must be established. This does not destroy the cultures,
for life is valued above and beyond the spheres of habitation.
There will be a time when even the system, though settled in
Light and Life must replace some of the physical content. It is
the nature of the dynamics of time and space.
Though your world may be disrupted, particularly since your
sun is finite, that which is Urantia, the humanity, will remain.
It is the Light and Life that is being established. Systems
referred to are not so much the administrative definitions as
they are the physical juxtapositions. [Sure enough, the passage
in question is p. 165B: "You are now passing through the very
same space that your planetary system, or its predecessors,
traversed ages ago; and some day in the remote future your
system, or its successors, will again traverse the identical
space through which you are now so swiftly plunging." ed.] Only
Havona is eternal and permanent.
Does this provide you with some orientation?
Evelyn: Yes, it does. That is reassuring to hear that
cultures do go on. I assume that they would be moved to more
suitable spheres for their continued progress.
* Malvantra: This is a possibility. Also it is a capability
of some energy entities to sustain planets that have become
involved in a fragile space configuration while replacing objects
in proximity in order to keep a planet in orbit that is valued a
life world. We may replace adjacent spheres to maintain the
balance when these other simple rocks have become disrupted.
This we can do for it does not interfere with the Father's will
for human growth and your freedom. Subsequent system contains
the word sequential and does imply this replaceability.
Evelyn: Are architectural spheres sometimes in need of
attention like this as well?
* Malvantra: Architectural spheres have their own physical
dynamics and enjoy a certain independence from the seemingly
willynilly physical energy circuits. They are placed deliberat-
ely and with great concern for longevity and have a self-
sustaining quality that your evolutionary systems like your solar
system do not have. Here in your solar system it is a fortuitous
balance of placement and motion. In architectural configurations
it is a deliberate alignment that perpetuates their existence.
Evelyn: Well, thank you.
I appreciate your puzzle analogy. I saw a jigsaw puzzle this
week that had its border assembled. So it's a very fresh image
you were working with.
Harold: Along that line of planetary balance, is there some
way that planets in our solar system influence us, other than the
moon which has some physical influences?
* Malvantra: Upon your world there is great influence. Your
physicists are only scratching the surface of the gravitational
and magnetic forces present. This bearing upon a planet has
little influence upon an individual's mind except that, if forces
align such that your world is effected, then all minds resident
thereon are disturbed. The chemical nature of your being makes
obvious the cause and effect relationship of physical things to
one another. But the influences on a galactic level are so
greatly beyond in magnification to the sphere of human activity
that you have little inkling as to when there is change in
effect. It would be analogous to the turn of seasons slowly
through a year in scale compared to the change of one day,
between dawn and dusk. It is so gradual it is inconsequential to
the actions of human beings. You would more notice the effects
if you were transported into another system, then the difference
would be like winter to summer. But within your system the
changes are very subtle and are as hard to detect as the diffe-
rence in December and January of your weather patterns.
Does this provide illustration?
Harold: Yes. I am a little unclear as to what is
influenced by this. Are you saying the human mind is influenced,
or is it just the chemical makeup is influenced by it?
* Malvantra: Your chemical makeup is more greatly influenced.
Your mind is far freer. The only qualification to this is that
your mind is functioning through a chemical organ, your brain.
So there is some effect, but this is not so acute in a daily
sense. It is more of an effect in terms of ages. And proximity
does have greater bearing, as you have indicated regarding your
moon. Also, to show some mental connection, the mere absence of
clouds and the observed radiance of your sun does effect your
sense of wellbeing. But it has no bearing on your ability to
choose truth over error.
Some of the more immediate effectors of your being are much
closer to you than astronomical bodies, such as the presence of
radioactive gases and electromagnetic fields, ion pools. These
are more likely to influence your physical ability to outwork
your chosen actions.
Harold: Yes. Are these influences you just spoke of
positive or negative or neither one?
* Malvantra: In a spiritual sense they have no positive or
negative effect because of freewill dominance. But from the
human perspective it does aid or retard your sense of success.
For instance, nutrition may be lacking in an individual's
environment and can hinder in a human sense the progress, but the
personality is always free to select truth whether nourished or
starving. This is difficult for you to clarify for so much of
the human life is anchored in the physical realm. One like
myself can ...(tape flipped)... freedom from physical restraints
can perceive the independence of your spiritual natures.
However, to return to my analogy, I perceive the picture of the
puzzle where you are only now placing the pieces of the puzzle.
This is the spectrum of wisdom.
Harold: Thank you. That was very interesting.
* Malvantra: My pleasure.
* Ham: Greetings, I am Ham. I am here only to salute and to
acknowledge the successes of your teachers. As one who is in a
sense a grandfather-teacher in this correcting period, I come
periodically to your side. I would express to you how each of
you is valuable in this mission. The extension of the celestial
administration into the affairs of this world necessitates
individuals like yourselves who are scattered throughout the
world to translate the celestial effort into a terrestrial
effect. Without your assistance we have no purpose. It is not
our purpose to set you straight but to rather set you going.
Evelyn: It is like what was said about offering meaning
rather than correctness; you are getting us going whether or not
we get it right.
* Ham: This is correct.
* Elyon: Your teacher Elyon here. I would close our meeting
by verbalizing a prayer to our Father:
He who has blessed us with the abilities to grow and with
the great universe within which to unfold, may we always share
the effort we make in growing with our brothers and sisters. May
we maintain a balance in our ministry with our own efforts at
growth; that we, while making our own journey, carry the bags of
our friends; and that while we minister to the needs of our
fellows we do not lose sight of our own; that we balance the
walking of the second mile with the mote and the beams of the
eye; that we rely on one another for guidance. For it is through
our brethren that You are ministering to each of us in a collec-
Help us, Father, to realize how broad this kingdom of Yours
is. Help us to understand our function, not that it is hidden
for us to discover as much as it is for us to creatively unfold.
You have not hidden our purpose; we are Your purpose as living
beings; we are Your demonstration for all else as they are for
