Teacher: I am Abraham, I am your Teacher.
All Good evening Abraham
Tommas Not so much, a query. Just some thoughts of my own. I have been feeling quite good in myself, and cheerful, and get along with people, but then you hear on the news of a violent assault, and I feel such a rage inside, and some of the things I think should be done to these people, and I realize how easily violence can breed violence, then I tend to feel that I have undone all of my good thoughts by the thoughts I have had for these other people, do others here have the same sorts of feelings?
Teacher: I am understanding. You are understanding you have found the calm within yourself. You also recognize that at times there is need to express anger etc. because you have the calm you shall not express your feelings in a violent manner toward other persons. It does not undo your calm. The calm brings balance. You are understanding?
Teacher: You are all of the same thinking?
All Yes, we are,
Teacher: What happens when change is occurring? Turmoil, over balance, yes. Humankind undergo immense change, much social policy is under review, social attitudes under review, yes. And is it not just for these perpetrators of violent acts to be faced with their wrong doings to society, to them self.
Teacher: To forgive the person, understanding the person, but not to forgive the action, the thought, the feeling, is a difficult thing.It is a fearing of yourself, and it is the ACTION, that it is despised. The person may be with compassion, excused.
Yes, it is the ACTIONS that we all deplore.
Teacher: So like, treats like.
Teacher: I have said before times, it is not of necessity to live existences from beggar to king, with all the ramifications in-between. You are understanding? And this is a problem, but as I have said, when change is occurring there is a maelstrom if you wish, where things, persons, actions, feelings, appear to be exaggerate out of control, magnify, to grow vast from one manner to change to another manner in-between is the maelstrom and this time you live is such.
Teacher: Certainly. You see, through the vast expanse of time, space, that the planet Earth has become populated, so to, has the numbers of persons grown, there are now many more persons living, inhabiting the planet Earth than at any other period in the history of the planet Earth, much adjusting must be done.
Selina When you say a time span, are you talking about 100 years, a thousand years
"Well you mentioned the time span that we are now living in, I presume you are not talking about a short time span, like our life span for example.
Teacher: Correct. I am unable to give a limit.
Teacher: Correct. You see, the development of a human being the fastest growth is in. the early years, yes. Much learning, language, movement etc. from then it is expanding from that initial learning, with the planet Earth, it is as such, but reversed. In the early times learning was comparatively slow. As the development of the Earth and the people who populated the Earth that development has speeded until now in the last few decades. The largest area of experiences learning has taken place, you would agree? There shall come a time, I am unable to give a limit, when the speed shall slow, and expansion on that which has been learned shall take place, at a more comfortable rate but you see, in the face of horror such as you have spoken of, endeavour to remain positive and calm, yes. Violence begats violence. Negativity begats negativity.
Bryoni If we fear these things happening to us, is it not more likely that they will
Teacher: I give you exercise which may ease your hearts. Look for GOOD NEWS for a change, collect GOOD NEWS. Happy events, cheerful news, perhaps you may divide yourselves, one half of you could collect the bad news, sad, unhappy, distasteful events, and the other half of you could collect the good news, happy, joyful events, and comparisons may be made, you may find a surprise for yourselves. This is a good plan for you?
You may draw straws, and then perhaps you may change for a following weeks gathering. Sensation sells, good news does not shock, does not bring bile to the throat, anger to the heart, your neck hairs do not stand on end, I say this, when faced with negativity, when fed negativity, problems, remain calm. Look for good events in another place. Also human kind are programmed to remark & comment on that which appears bad, for example, the weather. When the thunder claps and the lightning flashes, does not your body tense, it is cold, yes, much comment is made on this.
Correct. And what does this do, it closes you.
Charles Abraham has told us in the past, that a negative thought, or a negative vibration is much stronger than a-positive one and therefore the room could be full of positive thoughts, but one negative person could walk in and just destroy.
Teacher: To illustrate again the weather. When it is cold, wet dismal, do not you hurry from place to place, the quicker to arrive at the fireside. When the sun shines bright it has a slowing effect, yes? So it appears the cold is more strong, because it produces a strong action, think!
Selina On a positive note, Selina & Tommas went to an Inner Peace Movement meeting and the speaker talked about the same things as Abraham talks about, vibrations, silver cord, God Force, positive, negative, love energy. Many people there, a few left after half an hour, as it was not what they had expected, but the majority of searchers, like us stayed, and could go on to an in depth meeting the following night, it was nice to see so many people quite happy to sit and listen and learn more about self.
Filip Talks about writing to the author of the Watchers book, and contact Mothers who have lost babies, who are concerned about the souls of the babies, a radio talk-back, a book, expand our knowledge.
"I just need to repeat what you have told us.
" Learned from a higher consciousness.
Teacher: Then you wish to take refreshment? then I shall return.
A long discussion followed, mostly on all the points talked about earlier, more depth, more to & fro, for & against.
Filip have you got any comments on our discussions?
Teacher: Yes, it is this, and then I shall leave you
AS WITH YOUR ECONOMY, PERSONAL VALUED ARE INFLATED
