Topic: In Past, TM Would Be Miracle
Group: Arcadia TeaM
TR: George B.
Lucille: Dear Father we thank you for the beautiful world we live in. We thank you for the many friends that we have here, getting together to meet tonight to listen to our teacher. Help us to grow more; nearer to you. We thank you for your love and direction, we particularly thank you for the words from our teachers. Amen.
JarEl: TR, George B. Greetings, welcome all once again to this loving family; to this group which is so faithful to one another and to the Teaching Mission. I am so happy to see all of you once again.
You come here to witness what some would consider a miracle. Perhaps in your minds you are so accustomed to the Teaching Mission that it has become an everyday event for you and so the miracle is no longer a miracle but something that you are used to. If I were speaking two thousand years ago to a group of individuals, my words would be interpreted as coming from God. They would be written down into scripture and forever venerated as the Word of God. So anything that I would have said would have been recorded in time, my words would have been crystallized in the minds of men and would have become law. However, that is not the case at this moment, because you understand the context of my words.
You understand that even if it is I, JarEl, that is speaking to you, it is still coming through the transmitter/receiver. He can skew my words, misinterpret my thoughts and mistranslate what I say. So in listening to my words and in reading them later on you take all of this into account and you interpret these words with your hearts, with your souls and with the Spirit of Truth that lives within you. This helps you to understand what you read and what you hear and helps you to confirm the truth. In just such a way must you look at scriptures that have been written two thousand years ago. Try to imagine the person receiving this information, his level of intelligence, his level of understanding. Put everything into context. You know that you must take everything that was said, done and written with a grain of salt. Only with the Spirit of Truth shall the truth be revealed.
The reality is, that I am speaking to you now, in this day and age, to a group of people who understand, who comprehend and who do not confuse my words for that of God or Jesus. Even though Michael may, from time to time, speak to you. At this moment it is I, JarEl, your group teacher who speaks to you. You also understand that there are many other teachers who come from time to time and address this group. The reason I wanted to bring this to your attention is to illustrate that there is some degree of the miraculous in what is happening here today; in my transmitting and your receiving. This can still be called a miracle. If you wish to think of it that way you are more than welcome. I prefer you to think of it as an everyday event, as something that you can do all the time, whenever you want. You can ask us questions always. We are here to help you. We are here to guide you. Go into the quiet time and make the connection with us.
The Teaching Mission and the Correcting Time is a reality in this Universe. A reality that shall become more real for you as you go further on your journey towards perfection and Paradise. If I were to tell you everything I know, everything I see or hear, you would call it all a miracle because you do not understand. It is something strange to you and you cannot comprehend, but you will, in time. There will be a time when you will no longer call it a miracle but it shall be a reality. There will be a day when you will not have the same body that you have now and it won’t be a miracle but a reality. There will be a day when you fuse with your Thought Adjuster and it will be a reality. There will be a day when you are so close to God that you will understand his mind and that will be a reality. Do not believe people here when they tell you what is real and what is not real. You are not the judge of what is real and neither are they. Reality is far greater than you can comprehend. It is far beyond the limited mind-capacity of mortals. Reality transcends even the morontia mind. There are certain things that are real on your world you should value and these are love, relationships and friendships. I truly believe that what I have with you, our relationship, is real. It is tangible and it is real for me. One day you will know what real is.
Stella: I am sitting here and touching things, is not this world real also?
JarEl: TR, George. This world is material and everything material passes. Everything material changes, becomes different, is destroyed, dies and is reborn. My love for you never dies; it shall endure for all eternity. Answer me this, what is more real?
Stella: Love. Can I touch it? Is it real?
Lucille: Will our capacity to feel love grow when we get to the Morontia Worlds or will it grow here?
JarEl: TR, George. Let me re-phrase that. You have great capacity for love obviously, but to touch it, to hold it in your hand, that is beyond you at this moment, but in your hearts you feel capable. At this moment you might not understand how it is possible that love is real when you cannot hold it. You are being fooled by your own senses. You are being fooled by the limited senses that you have. When you acquire the new and more powerful senses in the morontia realm, you will understand what it is to love and why it is more real than anything you have left behind on earth.
Stella: What about hate?
JarEl: TR, George. Hate falls to the wayside.
Stella: Falls by the wayside?
JarEl: TR, George. Yes
Stella: There is not memory of it on the other side?
JarEl: TR, George. There is memory, but hate becomes transformed once love overtakes it. There is no room for hate on Paradise. You must learn to do away with all of these fear-based emotions before you enter the realm of Paradise. Everything that lies in the realm of fear gets lost in eternity. There is no reference for fear on Paradise, it is not a fearful Universe. It does not hesitate to create a planet or a galaxy. There is no fear.
Stella: What happens to those people who are very war-like here when they get on the other side? Do they still want to continue their wars? Or does that automatically drop away from them?
JarEl: TR, George. Those who are war-like take very little with them to the morontia realm. In the morontia realm they are like children who must learn everything new. They have not learned enough on their native world, so they must begin at the bottom. They are not allowed to wage war, it is not possible. When they arrive, they are quarantined, but most importantly they are given something that they did not receive on their native planet and that is love. Eventually love conquers whatever hatred, anger or fear they had. They begin to learn new and wondrous things and they begin to grow. Their souls flourish with new insight and love. There is hope for everyone, even the wounded. Consider yourselves fortunate, for you have advanced much towards the spiritual realm. You do not require very much re-education. Your souls are replete with love and understanding.
Steve: JarEl, I have been dealing with a lot of fear. Every day that passes I realize that I have one less day out of however much time I am destined to have on this planet. My personal situation at the present has become frightening to me. I spend quite a bit of time now everyday in the silence. I pray to Michael and try to commune with him. Yet I have not been able to shake the fear, and I know that feeling and experiencing this sense of panic and fear certainly is not the will of God. What can I do to alleviate this?
JarEl: TR, George. Steve it is very understandable, your fear. Believe me there are many like you who are in the same situation, who are just as afraid as you are. Ask yourself this question: What are you afraid of? Are you afraid of dying? Are you afraid of not doing the things that you want to do? If you analyze your fear, really question the motive behind your fear, perhaps you would come to realize that your fears are unwarranted. There is no reason to fear death; it is only a transition to the next realm, a realm that you will consider as heaven because there you will experience no pain; no suffering. It will be everything that you have always wanted. You will be given the opportunity to fulfill every wish; every dream that you ever had. Why should you fear such a dream? If you are afraid of not finishing your projects, not finishing the things that you wanted to do here on earth, that too is understandable, but there is always someone there to assist you in your work. There is always someone else who can help you with your issues. You should be willing to give up your issues for that Being. You should be willing to allow someone else to help you and finish what you have started. I understand your fears Steve. I also understand that the Universe should be something that should not be feared, that death is something that will come and go, that you will still be alive. A brave example for this group was Hal. He faced death with dignity, although he had his doubts at first, he quickly overcame them. Now he is much happier. He is doing many things that he has wanted to do for a long time. He is making new friends and he is always thinking about all of you. Many of the thoughts that he dwells on are nostalgic to him and he is very happy because he knows that one day he will see all of you. He is up there waiting. Why should you be afraid to see Hal again or your father?
Steve: Have my father and Hal met?
JarEl: TR, George. Yes.
Steve: That is good.
JarEl: TR, George. Believe me that your father is at ease to be able to see you again. He has much understanding and he wishes you help in the long run. Let’s be real and let’s accept that everything material dies, but our soul survives and goes on forever. Let’s focus on that. Do not be afraid to let go of this body, only be glad to get rid of it. It’s so full of frailties and imperfections and it is so easily damaged. The body that you shall receive shall never die. Of course you will get many bodies; the point is that your soul goes on forever. You will realize that your soul was the only thing that was ever real. I hope that my talk here tonight has helped you Steve to alleviate your fears?
Steve: I think it has, I also sense that my father knows that it is the will of God for me to accomplish much more on this planet despite my present situation. I may someday realize that down here the gift of healing, which I hope for this planet, will see a material manifestation which can be viewed by many individuals and give them hope. My little contribution in dealing with this world I know, that so many individuals, even though they are not familiar with The Urantia Book teachings or this Teaching Mission, so many wish to make like contributions. There are so many that want to contribute to the light that is needed on this world. I only hope that I will succeed in my little way.
JarEl: TR, George. You have succeeded more than you know. You have put in your grain of salt; your grain of sand many times, all of you have. Perhaps you think that your contributions are too little, but when you see the whole, when you pull back far enough, you will realize how much your contribution is worth. Then you will find solace in your life on this earth. I don’t want you to feel pressured to make a difference here. You have made a difference already. What happens happens. It is the will of God that you are happy in the days, the years that you have left; that is the will of God, that you love one another. He does not mean to pressure you to make a difference. The difference is made when you love someone, when you befriend someone, when you help your friends, your family or a stranger. Everyone, try to do that, to act; to hope. So do not kill yourself to try to make a difference here on this earth. The difference has been made and at the moment it is sufficient and nothing more is required. It is up to you to act if you want to. God loves you, you are his children. Take this time to reflect on your life. Reflect on all the good you have done here on this earth. Don’t just focus on the big stuff. Focus on little things. Like being nice to the mailman or to the person crossing the street. Did you listen to your friend when he was talking to you, or were you thinking about something else? Little things like that. Think about the times that you have been selfless and done something for someone else. Did you help someone change a tire? Don’t pay attention to the specifics but to the essence of what I am trying to say; that is the everyday things you may do that helped bring a smile to a person’s face. That is your contribution to the greater whole. When you do your meditation, your contemplations on your life, think about all those times that you brought a smile to someone’s face. For every smile that you created is a point of contribution. I know you have created many smiles and there are many more to come. Reflect on that and you will see that you have done enough and you have made a great difference on this earth. Are there any other Teachers who would like to speak?
Are there any questions?
Lucille: JarEl, I want to thank you and tell you how much your lessons mean to me. They are so inspiring and informative. I look forward to them every other Monday.
JarEl: TR, George. You don’t know how that makes me feel, Lucille. That really touches my heart to hear you say that and to see the level of gratitude. I am more than happy to give these messages every other Monday. It brings me great joy to meet with you and your minds which hunger for new light and truth, thank you. I will try to meet with your expectations and perhaps surprise you from time to time with outrageous concepts. If there are no more questions or comments I bid you good night.
All: Thank you JarEl, good night.
