Topic: Evolving Belief
Group: Woods Cross TeaM
I am ABRAHAM. Greetings. I am with gratitude to be within your wonderful spirit this evening. I find that the more time that goes by with our relationship, the more I find myself having commonalities with you, like thoughts, humor, and sensitivities. Maybe it is because I have come to know all of you and find that I am at home in your personality essences.
At this time of year in this holiday coming, it is amusing to find individuals’ various interests in the unseen world. While many hunt for ghosts, you are sitting with them and talking with them. I am thankful that you have chosen to be a part of the Correcting Time and work toward a balance in belief systems. Even though some individuals may seek Father through a less realistic way, know that every way in which God is sought is a beginning. If we are open to change then our spiritual understanding grows.
I am MARY and with a grateful heart to spend time with you. I know that I was in the flesh during a very superstitious time on the world. Individuals ran their lives according to their beliefs and had not room to grow or change. It is understandable, if you firmly believe in something, that it is cemented and not allowed to grow with your soul-needs.
In my day we thought of Father as an angry caretaker and our motives were to be seen as pure children. Of course, we would always fall short of our own expectations and then believe that Father was angry with us. It would then lead to self-loathing and repentance and then virtuosity, and then the whole cycle would repeat itself with our disappointed expectation and stagnant beliefs.
You can see for yourselves, you are not the same person you were a year ago or five years ago. Your soul personality and mind are changing and with that your beliefs need to be in a state of flexibility. I am not saying that Father is ever-changing, no. However, our understanding of Him is. We are even finding in our Correcting Time that there are so many more spiritual possibilities than ever before. Those in the Correcting Time can move forward with the comfort of feeling no evil-one is sitting on their shoulder influencing negativity.
Our Indwelling Father is many times made to change in the way that He teaches us to move through our eternal career, but the lesson is the same. You can say we change to fulfill our spiritual career and our Teachers change to help us learn in the best way we can. There is every benefit for you to obtain and maintain growth of the spirit—even when there are not other supportive factors such as physical health.
I know that having the Master as a living example in my time on earth is just as valid as your time here on earth. I know that I could see him with my physical eyes, but you can experience Him in the spirit and that is all-pervading and more relative to our soul-need.
I am grateful that the Master did not come among us to make us feel inferior for our present belief, but came to shine a light on joyous possibilities. For example, when someone believed their sickness was due to God’s disdain for them, the Master would emphasize the growth of Father’s family and how so many were coming into the Kingdom that the angels constantly rejoiced and He would let the sick individual know that he was a part of this Kingdom and in no way left behind by our Father.
The master may not have totally changed an individual’s mind, but He would indeed plant a seed that was always for the ultimate good of the individual. With each stage of life that you experience, you must come to expect there will be revisions in your belief-system. There will be changes or perhaps total dissection of beliefs and rebuilding. In other words—as spiritual beliefs change, it must come about through our experiences and to embrace our experiences is to open the mind to further build upon the scaffolding that will add to our building of spiritual beliefs.
We are also on a changing course now on Urantia because of the Correcting Time and you individuals of today have so many more opportunities than ever before because the planet is re-incircuited with the universe. The Lucifer rebellion has been adjudicated and the Teaching Mission has been in operation for many years now. With your willingness to embrace possibilities you are accepting advanced challenges and experiences. It is true that we are not to build a house on this world but a bridge from this world to the next.
I am with such honor to have been a part of your spiritual growth. I have been witness to many changes in the mind and willingness to take on advanced training. I am with gratitude to also learn from you and know how things differ from my day and how I can become a better teacher by learning more about you. I believe Jesus was such a wonderful Teacher because of His interest in everyone. He understood the value of the Father’s child, not so much a uniqueness of each being, but more of an importance to Father.
When you are with your fellows you cannot so much dwell on the differences, but look forward to an era of Light and Life and how that would look on the world right now. How would being non-judgmental within society look? How would you relate with those who speak another language? How would your belief systems change? When we look back more than 20 years ago, did we ever foresee this Mission? I did not and am pleasantly surprised at the growth. I am honored to be among you as a student and a teacher and with that, I will take my leave.
Again, I am ABRAHAM. I thank Mary for her, you could say, her eye-witness account of the Master’s life. She was right within His peaceful countenance, wisdom and all-encompassing love. I appreciate that about her teaching is on such an earthly level. This week let us take what seems to be dark and put it under a positive light just for the improvement of our own attitude. If we are in understanding of the possibilities, we will not be able to contain our joy and it will spill out upon those we contact. Know that I am also honored to be a student and teacher side-by-side with you and we can be with the willingness to believe we are being a part of momentous changes. My love goes with you. Until next time, Shalom.
