Topic: Thought Receiving & Delivery
Group: Woods Cross TeaM
From Transcriber: What a beautiful lesson. If no one is gleaning value from these posted lessons, I surely am. This lesson brings me much greater understanding of how our collective thoughts do help to over-ride thoughts of fear. I have spoken on this lately (from celestial prompting) about the measurements of good thinking outweighing the negative thinking, but didn't understand for sure until re-reading this lesson this morning. Good weekend.... Calvin
I am ABRAHAM. My greetings to you. How was your week of practicing feeling at home in the world? I love to hear of your experiences with the weekly lessons. I must say these lessons are ongoing. These lessons are to be interwoven into your daily experiences. Once effort has been made to practice these living lessons they become natural. These skills are unconsciously done daily.
I would like to speak on thought receiving and delivery. Everyday you may receive ideas and thoughts which you may claim as your own. Some of these thoughts you receive are given to you by your Indwelling Spirit, which is your Thought Adjuster. Many thoughts may be delivered by the universal circuitry. Many thoughts are received by you, and then also, delivered on a planetary circuit. Many mortals are mentally equipped for receiving these higher thought messages. It is easy for them to receive and then to send out verbally to friends, family, but also, to send out mindally on this thought circuit.
It is wondered how the world so filled with destruction and negative emotions can move closer to Light and Life. I would tell you our Creator, His Spirit of Truth, His staff, His planetary helpers also work with this mind to mind sending of thoughts. This is how we can reach many mortals of this world. A shift of mind is needed to further the evolution of this world. No, this is not brainwashing, mind coercing. Thoughts are only delivered to those who desire them.
Jesus, when He went alone into the hills to commune with His Father, many things were made clear to Him. Many thoughts He received. Many times was His heavy heart lifted up by Father. He was open to receive. He thought not only planetary, but He thought universally. In this He was able to better know the Father's will. He was better able to understand which direction His Father in Heaven would have Him take. The Master helped this world take a giant step forward in understanding. He was able to receive thoughts and then to give out again in His teachings, in His ministering to His fellows.
Right now your nation mourns the tragedy that occurred last week the Oklahoma bombing. I also mourn for this planet and its seemingly senseless violence. I can tell you now the thought circuit is alive with powerful positive thoughts. Out of a tragedy minds and hearts join in reflection of their own individual lives and their lives together here. Out of a tragedy many more openly accept their neighbors personality patterns, habits. Out of a tragedy the world has become more connected, more aligned with the thought circuit.
This is not to say tragedy is good. This is to say there will be tragedy. There will be pain. There will be grieving, but also, there will be an outburst of thoughts of love, service, caring and healing. I would ask you to focus on some of the positive things that might possibly come out of negative occurrences.
I would also mention a good time to receive celestial thoughts is during a time of stillness, perhaps during a moment of creativity. I would say the receiving of these thoughts are also ideal at times of self-reflection. I have spoken of changing the worldly paradigm, but I would also add, this thought circuit also serves individual learning experiences as well.
Your human minds are also equipped to send out thoughts. Perhaps you have thought of a negative thing only to see it occur the next day. That is on a more individual level. You would do well to practice entertaining thoughts of positivity. You would do well to recognize a negative thought and imagine this thought in a raging river to be swept away by the current.
Negative thinking is a habit. Negative thinking can be a magnet. It can draw negative things to you just as positive thoughts can draw positive things to you. For us to reach as many people as we do we rely much on the Indwelling Father fragment. The Father fragment within can assist in filtering out negative impurities which can harm the soul, which can harm the progress of this world.
This week I ask you to engage in this practice of planetary thought receiving and perhaps sharing it verbally or just by pondering on this thought. I would ask you to watch for the negative thoughts and let them be swept out by the raging river. Perhaps a conversation with a fellow would help to add to the mind circuit, so a positive conversation would be of a great benefit to the changing of spiritual progress, evolutionary progress. A brother or sister who may be on a negative path in the conversation, perhaps you could help them to see the lighter side. Perhaps you might say, yes, I agree that is bad, but many good things could result.
W.: I have a question. I have a lot of questions. You said that thoughts are only delivered to those who desire them. So if we are praying for greater understanding...say militia groups in this country or people that are practicing mindally violence. Are they being served? Are they receiving?
ABRAHAM: I am sorry to say, the negative individuals do attract like individuals. They are also somewhat empowered to send negative ideas. I would say these negative individuals don't receive very many good thoughts. I would also add they are a small majority. The majority of this world are good, possibly not all spirit-led, but nonetheless, good-hearted. Does this help?
W.: It does. Perhaps to clarify, as we are praying for greater peace on our planet would it serve us best then to pray for the majority of good-hearted people to come to greater understanding in terms of feeling more protection for ourselves against the negativity?
ABRAHAM: Yes. As you feel more at home in the world better are you able to socialize, better able are these good-hearted individuals to see they're not alone in their hopes for goodness in the world. If the honest, if the good- hearted people were to unite this thought circuit can override these small negative groups. Once people unite in a common effort to achieve peace then will you see these small negative groups being more exposed, brought to light. Next question.
C.: Abraham, I appreciate very much you're taking delicate time in presenting this to us. It does sound like a very...from your side...effort to help us in our situation here with these thoughtless people. I take it you are saying we, ourselves, can change our surroundings. And as it becomes a bigger pool of people, magnify and really expand outward at a faster pace than maybe we realized. I also perceive like when I am driving and talking to my boy at times I'll start explaining things and I have a real clear mind of some things that I have never thought of before or maybe subconsciously or consciously didn't think of before. It's like I am learning while I am saying things. Is that part of what you are saying in receiving circuitry, thought circuitry from celestial beings maybe?
ABRAHAM: Yes. Your Indwelling Fragment being the doorway for these thoughts, your Adjuster organizes and assists you in your understanding of spiritual concepts. I would also add many in the world are very good receivers of these spiritual thoughts, and therefore, this helps in teaching. Next question.
J.: Abraham, I have a little confusion about positive thinking and negative thinking. Seems to me it is hard to reconcile being an honest thinker with being a positive thinker. Because of perception in the world there certainly is a great deal of immaturity, evil, and even sin that goes on around us. If we are to think positively, it seems to me that we would need to have a selective perception about the world around us and perceive only half of what's going on, which would be the positive half, and filter out the negative half, which seems to be removing us from half the world we live in. Could you comment on that?
ABRAHAM: Yes. This idea of positive thinking is not to overlook the evil, not to deny the negative. What you say is correct. Yes, we must view, perceive this world with honesty. My direction is in the sending of these thoughts. Hopefully these thoughts will be positive. In the sending of these positive thoughts there is great reception and response. When you speak with a negative person, this person may drain you of your energy, make you feel empty and sad. Conversation with a positive person lifts you, feeds your energy. You contribute to their energy, they contribute to yours.
The media, for example, to show destruction and devastation is an honest look, but not the whole story. Stories may be filled with inspiration and hope and the joining of communities. The media would do well to also show the power of the human spirit. To also perhaps not to just talk about those who died, but perhaps, those that lived. Does this answer?
J.: That is very helpful and interesting. Thank you.
ABRAHAM: One more question.
T.: I have a question Abraham. You spoke about mortals being mentally equipped for receiving morontia/higher thought earlier. I was just kind of curious, is that more so in this day and age or has it kind of been the same throughout the ages? Are we more mentally equipped now for morontial thought?
ABRAHAM: With the breaking up of dogma, old religious authoritarian practices, the mortals of this world are more free to trust in their own thinking, not being pressured on how to think, better equipped for receiving thoughts and also transmitting them out. Does that help?
With that I shall leave you with this thought: Father is like your shadow. You can see Him in hours of light, therefore, easily believing He is working in your life. I would also say during the dark hours, although you are not able to see your shadow, keep in mind that soon the sun will rise. Shalom.
