Group: Woods Cross TeaM
I am ABRAHAM. Greetings to you. I view you all to be as children that are reaching up for your Father's hand. This is very beautiful. I see you, the sons and daughters, who do not lay down helpless when hit by mortal burdens. I see you rise upon falling and fighting the good fight of faith. I am honored to be your teacher. As I teach I also learn. I thank you for that.
Last week our lesson had many meanings, lessons within lessons. Each of you at your own level of development received the specific lesson that you needed. You can say that all did not receive the lesson in the same way. This is how such diverse groups of cosmic citizens are taught on the mansion worlds. No one is being pushed or hurried along. All are at liberty to pursue an individual spiritual path. You may find it helpful to discuss each ones understanding of these weekly lessons. To speak with one another is helpful in expanding personal perspectives. To communicate without worry of judgment is to receive immediate assistance from the participating Father Fragments. We find that communication between mortals is helpful in understanding universe meanings, and yes, this also effects the Supreme Being.
Last week I asked you to be observant and reflective, to be watchful and aware of spiritual meanings. To be observant requires a calm mind, a desire to be open to Father's will. The hurried mind is impatient and not receptive to reflecting what is observed. The worried mind is also an obstruction to what you may know. A scientist must observe elements on many levels and re-observe after that, upon which the scientist may report his findings. The passionate scientist is in a strong desire to be at one with that which he observes. He is devoted to a specific goal. The scientist does not rush through his experiments in the hope that the discoveries will come sooner. The passionate scientist must remain aware of every aspect of his experiment. He is not preoccupied with outside concerns because he may miss important aspects of his observation. The caring scientist not only reports his findings, but what he understands about the meaning of what he finds. The good scientist is always complete in his study and is not distracted by his own personal wishes and desires for the outcome, therefore leaving the scientist open to more accurate results.
You are this scientist. You are studying the elements of spirituality and your goal is Paradise. You are observing Father's fingerprints and how they relate to your sojourn in the flesh. I say you are this passionate scientist who observes mortal happenings and defines them with spiritual definitions. To be in this mode of observing and reflecting you are in the midst of the will of Father. To be at liberty to observe without worry is to view mortal happenings with new eyes and an open heart. To be a learner is an invitation to be taught therein lies the will of God. Have you questions?
CALVIN: Abraham, in last weeks lesson, I would just like to say how much that is helpful in viewing our Father, but also I would comment on it seems no matter how well we do with your lessons or not show or not pay enough attention, still you seem like the kind father like in that story you told. I know you are going to be here for us anyway. I appreciate that as an example we can relate with. You seem never to be upset with us if we do something wrong or get a little too far out of line with our attitudes. You are always there with the same kind love and that is a good stepping-stone to view even more increased Father's ways.
ABRAHAM: This is easy for me. I am in understanding of the path you must travel. I also received this same loving encouragement from my friend and mentor, Machiventa. He never showed anger due to my misguided understandings. He had a view of the bigger picture. He saw that my mistakes were finite and my authentic self was potentially eternal. He too was a loving, patient and understanding teacher. Another question?
RACHEL: Father Abraham, I have one that I have been wanting to ask you for quite awhile. In your mortal life did you have a son named Isaac? (Yes.) And was the request made by God for you to sacrifice your son Isaac as a test on you?
ABRAHAM: No, only within my own mind I was led to believe through a series of dreams, events and traditions that Father required the ultimate sacrifice as proof of my love. This was my own misguided understanding. Today we have many misguided individuals who still believe that their greatest treasures must be sacrificed in order to receive God's love and return love to God. Father has never asked us to sacrifice anything that would hurt us so severely, but many mortals believe that their adversities are just that, sacrifices made to pay debts or atone for sins. You are in understanding of my words, Rachel?
RACHEL: Yes, you bet and I am very thrilled with your answer because I didn't think the Father would really make that request of anyone. So when it gets right down to the bible story then it is just partially authentic?
ABRAHAM: Yes. (Thank you.) Good question Rachel. Thank you. Another question?
CALVIN: Abraham, were you around in my life when that same thing kind of happened to me? I got sidetracked in my search for truth with one of these self proclaimed "this is the way and the only way" people. You are probably aware of that individual. In my search 'where is God', I remember the scripture saying, " If a man can't leave his father, mother, son or daughter for my sake he is not fit for my kingdom." I understand the correct meaning of that now, meaning put the Father's work ahead of everything else. But I thought that meant to do the same test that you did. I remember the day when I thought I said good-bye to my children for the last time. I wonder if that even came close to maybe what you experienced? I know it was a very tough decision and yet how beautiful it was when I realized that I was in error in that thinking.
ABRAHAM: I am aware, yes. This was somewhat similar to my own experience. The mind is somewhat fallible when in pain, emotional or otherwise. The mind when blocked from communion with Father attempts to reason on what it thinks is logical and many times mortals believe they are deserving of punishment for wrongs committed. Atonement is still believed to be mans greatest process in which you believe to be cleansed free from sin and within God's favor. In an attitude of observing and reflection you are opening yourselves to immediate open communion with Father. You are in reality co-creating your divine destiny. You are in unbroken communion. To trust the Father and know that all is taken care of is to be aligned with His will. To be at ease with Father's decisions is to receive immediate answers to questions you are asking. To be in this unbroken communion is to know that Father asks nothing from you except for your love. This is an easy request knowing the Father's goodness. Are we in agreement there?
CALVIN: Yes. If we love Him we would surely have to have trust. How could we love something that we feared? To know that just have love for this 'all taking care of us Father' that would have to include trust and faith. So love has to encompass then all those words?
ABRAHAM: Yes. Like my life in your recorded account is exaggerated. I had never gone so far as to lay my son on the table. Another question?
CALVIN: I have been telling people that story just as you told it. I knew that had to be the truth. Traditions made him think that he had to prove that he loved God and through Melchizedek, your mentor, as you are ours, said, "look you don't have to do that." Is that kind of what you're telling us? (RACHEL: You are ours. You belong to us.)
ABRAHAM: Yes. I am slipping. I want to express my love and gratitude to you each. I ask you to remain observant and reflective. Attempt to feel the presence of your Father during these moments of observing and reflecting, Know that you are well taken care of. Until next week, shalom.
