Topic: Mansonia, Part II
Group: Nashville TeaM
Once more, I am relying on your thought adjusters to help your understanding because this lesson normally is not given until you have reached Mansonia two. The Mansion world life is very different from this life. You have freedom that you don't understand on this world. Freedom that involves increasing self-discipline. You are starting to understand that your time should be used wisely, that freedom does not entail laziness or self-indulgence.
To the immature mind, the life on Mansonia two may seem restricted and regimented, but this is never due to a coercive force being applied, it is the intelligent understanding among its inhabitants who choose to live in an orderly manner that causes this impression. The inhabitants of Mansonia two take great delight in learning, in applying their learning as well as relaxing, socializing, and enjoyment of reversion. They look forward to the day when reversion is not necessary, but they are still immature creatures who require relaxation and rest.
It is beginning to dawn on these ascenders, as it should be beginning to dawn on you, that you are educating yourselves and working toward something very great and though it has not been entirely revealed to you, you cannot help but be swept up in the excitement, in the knowledge of working for the advancement of God. It is beginning to dawn on you that you are being entrusted with something sacred. You are beginning to understand that the Father of all creation is giving you his trust.
Gradually, your doubts about yourselves are giving way to the doing of the work that you have been entrusted with. Gradually, you understand that there is nothing more important, even you are not more important, than the goal, the trust, the work. Service, gradually becomes an all consuming desire. You are beginning to find your place in the universe and to acquit yourselves well in the tasks you have been given. Gradually, your purpose becomes clear and all the doubts and the worries and the hassles and the hang-ups cease to bother you, cease to impede your progress.
The second mansion world is a time of great unfolding, where who you are and are discovering yourself to be and the path that you are choosing become one and the same. There is no longer a separation between you and your purpose. You are becoming your purpose as it is revealed to you.
As I explained last week, the second mansion world is one where the Father in the form of your thought adjuster and you are drawing closer and closer within the medium of the mind. So as this is happening, you destiny also is being revealed. Freedom lies in this process. Once you know who you are, who you are becoming, and what you are to do in the Universe, there is no fear, or misconceived idea that can chain you.
There is great power in this knowing, this self-revealing wonderful process. You will begin to have power over the old clinging human weaknesses. Spiritual power is power of self-control. Gradually, this growing maturity and establishment of your true character/identity is stronger than the old fears and weaknesses which once enslaved you. You are given the power to do what you now understand you must do. You must do it as the fulfillment of yourself. You have no wishes that can possibly go beyond what you have been given, so you have no desire for self-betrayal. All you are, and all you will become is now focused toward the goal.
Let me use an example that you may understand. Excuse the crudeness of this example. Mozart was born a child prodigy. He knew his life's calling, his life's work and fulfilled himself through music. This is very crude, but it is somewhat analogous to the all consuming desire that grows within your breast within this time in your development. You simply must be who you are and find your expression.
Your life in the flesh rarely allows you to come to this point in your development, but I would not be teaching this lesson if I thought it was beyond you. Are there any questions at this time.
Q: This is not a question, but as I was thinking about this lesson about the visions our religions have of life after death, and the vision that you have painted for us is far more wonderful and inspiring that any of these.
Q: This is a personal question, is the work that I will be doing to the work for my task as part of this mission, is it similar to the work I will be doing later, the same kind of work, how close it is to what I will be doing later? I am curious?
Ham: This I cannot tell you because the work evolves as you go, becomes grander and more meaningful and more fulfilling. I would think that you are on pathway even now, and so yes it is similar, certainly.
Ham: The young soul like a young plant cannot carry the full weight of its potential fruit when it is but a seedling. Time is required for the stalk to grow, for the branches to thicken, before the fruit can be borne. Much of what transpires in this life is analogous to the plants first sprouting to the growth toward the sun but for what purpose, it is not seen until the first buds and the first fruits. As in all things, the process of self-revealing and God-revealing is time dependent. So, never be anxious or concerned about your spiritual growth. See to it that your soul is fed and watered and the Father will see to its growing.
Q: I understand this intellectually, but I don't think I have learned it. I find that I am not patient and that I want to be at that point without covering all the distance in between. I don't know how others feel, but I want to move quickly.
Ham: When you were a child, and were waiting for Christmas, didn't a day seem interminably long?
Q: Yes, I do remember that quite clearly,
Yes. Very true.
You said. "You have no wishes that can possibly go beyond what you have been given, so you have no desire for self- betrayal. All you are, and all you will become is now focused toward the goal". I was wondering if it was really possible for us to achieve that state in our lives in the flesh. More specifically I am finding it hard to imagine having such a clear vision of our destiny, so clear that we can see how enormously wonderful it is.
Ham: All things are possible, the flesh is very weak, and the release from it and from the corruption of the physical world really puts you beyond it in a way that is impossible while still in the flesh. So, yes and no.
Q: Let me see if I understand, this vision or insight, this level of self-revelation is something that we have to allow to unfold gradually over time. There is not flash of insight of bolt of lightening that will strike us. We just have to be patient?
