2014-02-07-New Era Conversations 16
Topic: Consciousness is a Thought
Group: N. Colorado TeaM
Teacher: Rayson, Machiventa Melchizedek
TR: Daniel Raphael
- Moderators: Michael McCray and Susan Bryner
Prayer: Heavenly Father, Father Michael and Mother Nebadonia, again we greet you from our chilly states on Urantia, but we are thankful for our cozy homes and abundance of good food to keep us warm. We are most grateful for this opportunity to meet with our loving celestial mentors for ongoing communications concerning our world and for our spiritual growth. Truly you are wise and generous in your counsel and we love you all. Amen.
RAYSON: Good morning, this is Rayson.
Roxie: Good morning, Rayson! Good to hear from you again after such a long absence.
- Consciousness is a thought, a stream of universe energy
RAYSON: Yes, I am here to provide some filler for these conversations until the awakening of the initiation of the New Era. Today, I would like to talk to you about consciousness. There has been a good deal of discussion about consciousness in the past, but many of you have a rather mechanical way of looking at life and the world which is your principle way of looking at consciousness. In the universe it is a mechanical, linear operating sort of system. When you think of consciousness many of you think of it as a self-observation—being self-conscious. Consciousness is a thought; it is an impression on the stream of universe energy. When you have a thought and you project it, you are in many ways working on the level of an Internet page where you have a web site and you see the documents there, but there is a meta-language with meta-tags underneath in a sub-language that carries the form and format of your message forward.
- Consciousness is non-temporal and non-dimensional
So, too, is consciousness projected as a meta-tag, or a marker, in the message that you are sending. Consciousness is non-temporal and non-dimensional and so it is marked by your mind function and it moves forward that way. It is important that when you are in self-observation that you observe yourself with what you are thinking and what you are projecting, because you at all times are sending markers out in the consciousness into the universe around you by your thoughts. This is how we are able to know you, see you and measure you, so to speak, when we meet you in the morontial realm. Your consciousness is much more visible; it is as though you had asked your computer when you are in a web site, to show you the meta-tags underneath the material that you see first. When you are with other people, you oftentimes have a feeling that they are withholding something, even though they may be smiling and their eyes are sparkling and they seem to be joyful, you know that there is something else that they seem to be carrying with them and that has to do with these meta-tags, this consciousness. There is something in their consciousness that has connected with you. And even though you are not morontial beings yet, you still, nonetheless, are in contact through your superconscious mind with the lower levels of the morontial realm, and this is what you feel.
- Opening your heart in meditation
Another topic: Sometimes you are very joyful, very happy, you are elated, you read something that opens your heart. And when you open your heart that way, you are in connection deeply with the other realm of consciousness of the universe, with us. When you have your heart open and you have that gleeful, joyful, almost weepy sense of feeling in your heart about something, this is your true self; this is the true motive of openness to communicate with us. Your conscious mind is not operating, you are not in a linear mind mode of cause and effect, you are simply there in the moment. This is the state that you want to attain in your meditations. When you open yourself to your meditation, you open your heart to us; you are in oneness; you live in the moment, this precise moment now, without thought of the future, the past. In this now moment, appreciate this feeling within yourself that seems to occur so seldom, whereas with children who are gleeful, they feel it almost all the time. And so, when you move into that childlike state of acceptance and openness, you truly are open to us and this is when your Thought Adjuster is most easily able to speak with you. Enjoy this moment; try to replicate this when you are in meditation. When you enter into meditation and you ask a question aloud, “Father, are you here?” do so in the joyful moment of living in the now, where there are no worries about the future or regrets about the past. Do you understand? (Yes.) Good!
So, the heart is an agent of change and it is the agent that can assist you most with your growth and your discussions with us. That is why many times when you try to TR, that you have difficulty TRing in a group of two or three people, because you are intimidated by that feeling of guilt, or remorse, or shyness, or something with your self-worth or self-image. But when you enter into that heart moment of connection with the Father, that moment of joy, you can rely upon what you hear at that time and you simply let it flow through your mouth.
This is Rayson: I have no more lessons for you today. If you have questions about this topic or something else, I will be glad to address that.
MMc: Susan, do you have questions?
Susan: I have questions but they are not about this topic.
RAYSON: I will now step aside for our main speakers to come forward.
MACHIVENTA: Good morning, this is Machiventa Melchizedek. I am glad to be here with you, and obviously you have some questions you would like to address to myself, Charles or Monjoronson. I ask you to please proceed.
Susan: Well, Machiventa, Rayson stepped aside so fast, I failed to say, ”Thank you”; that was food for much thought for me personally, and I am sure for most all of our readers. Thank you, Rayson.
MACHIVENTA: Rayson is here and acknowledges your gratitude.
- Community organization
Susan: Machiventa, at my last design team meeting, I presented my concept of the community organization I had shared with you here in our last session. I presented an organization with a shared philosophy of the individual as a primary resource, an organization with a mission to support and facilitate the growth of the individual, and then an initial strategy to build a system within which we could communicate and come to know each other, our groups’ special interests and professions. So, this, in and of itself, would be a big step and require a lot of energy in the undertaking. The introduction of the idea did not go smoothly in our group, and so I have several questions that come from this experience.
The first one is: I had sent them all a detailed presentation of the concept to read before they came. Only one in eight actually read it, and that one didn’t even make it to the meeting, but interestingly, he met with me beforehand and was actually pretty supportive and wanted to just flesh out details. My point, though, is that people such as I’ve gathered here, who are the top one percent of our community, did not have the will or the time to read and think about it in advance. So, for most of them, I’m thinking that the idea needed to be presented incrementally, like first, a presentation and discussion of the philosophy, then a mission and a strategy, sort of like the design team process is supposed to be, but my conclusion from the experience is that I—or we—simply can’t present a whole idea, or a design all at once. For various reasons it is not going to be well received and it must be presented in increments, if we have a full idea of our own. Am I on the right track?
MACHIVENTA: Yes, definitely. You are the point-person in your leadership group and as such, you have a sense of what they can accept and what they cannot, what they can easily work on and what they cannot. It is important that you feed them at a rate at which they have enthusiasm. If you overwhelm them, then they have difficulty integrating that into their mind and into their framework, their social framework that they have for their community. Yes, it is very much to your advantage to go slowly so that they can stay abreast of you, with you, so that they can remain on the same page, that you will not overwhelm them. They will reject it if they see this as too much, too soon. The majority not reading the material is a passive-aggressive signal that this is more than they can take in at this time. Even though they say they may not have read it, they looked at the page and formed an opinion, perhaps within less than two seconds, and this is what prejudiced them against moving ahead.
This is a long-term project and what you are doing for the rest of your societies is you are devising a learning history, a wisdom base, a wisdom library, a record of what works and what does not work in how you proceed, and this is a wonderful program that you have, but remember that what you see is something that would take almost twenty years to flesh out. You could see major progress within two or three years, with incremental and ongoing social and community progress through years ahead, but in this beginning era, it is very necessary that you proceed slowly so that you bring them along with you.
Susan: Thank you; that was much needed. It made a lot of sense to me. I guess my experience was useful.
MACHIVENTA: Yes, you have to have great patience to be the point-person in the work that you are doing. This one has a friend whom he will connect with you to discuss his program; his program is equally, if not larger in scope than your own, and he has been working on this for at least a decade and a half, so his program has proceeded slowly and he is in the process of establishing a sustainable community program in Mexico. He will begin with bare land and design it with his executive team and local citizens to begin the process of establishing a physical, sustainable community with families and also have an educational training program and procedures to support sustainable social processes within that community. His program is large in scope and will require millions of dollars, but he has begun it with an earnest desire to establish sustainable families who can adopt children, to raise those children in a way that they become sustainable and can make a contribution to themselves and to their families and their communities.
Susan: This is most interesting and I would like to make contact with this person. Thank you.
- Wearing more than one hat at a time in groups
My second question regarding this experience I had is being the facilitator of a group and being the presenter, or what you call the point-person, and with a complex idea like this, it didn’t go well. It seems to me that one can only do one or the other, but not both. Is this correct, or is there a way to do both?
MACHIVENTA: This is correct. This is the difficulty that this one found when he had the experimental group in Evergreen, Colorado in 2007-2008, where he was the facilitator and the point-person, and also the TR, which creates tremendous conflict or difficulty, changing from role to role, from changing hats from one to the other. It makes rather a miserable situation for you, for the point-person who tries to do all the roles. It would be far more effective if you truly had a facilitator other than yourself, or someone other than yourself and you could present the ideas, or vice versa, where you would be the facilitator and you would help the team facilitate the ideas of someone else. This is far more effective and the team members learn how to work then, within a team, because the facilitator provides a training role model for facilitation to the team. This eventually becomes enculturated, indoctrinated or internalized by team members and they begin to act in their own minds as little facilitators, facilitating their own thoughts and it also assists in how they cooperate and collaborate within a team setting more effectively. Your point is well taken and your observations are correct.
Susan: Thank you. I will work on finding a facilitator. I have so many ideas that I feel like are things that come to me, that aren’t necessarily out of my… well, that come to me and I would like to be in a position to share them and have people discuss them. Being a facilitator does seem to hamper that a bit, so I thank you very much.
MACHIVENTA: Yes, the facilitator takes a burden, a linear or a rational procedure away from you and your thinking, and allows you as the point-person to be in contact with your celestial sources, while you present these ideas. You will find that there is a much greater internal synergism that goes on between yourself and your celestial advisors when another person becomes the facilitator.
- Trans-generational dysfunction of families
Susan: Machiventa, you just spoke about the gentleman in Mexico, who is working from scratch with a sustainable community and looking at starting with families, and that leads to my third question: In our last session, you spoke to the trans-generational fluidity of a functional family being creativity, inventiveness and the good or right use of wealth and power. And then you spoke of the more prevalent trans-generational dysfunction of families in our civilization and the downward swing that’s happening. So, once again, my interest was sparked in furthering another idea I had about family education in our community and a program I have worked with in the past. I spoke about it in a previous session—it is the “Step Program.” Something interesting happened recently: Last September, I was quoted in our newspaper regarding this program; it was just one sentence in one issue of a little weekly paper, that few people really read, but last week out of the blue, a woman in my community came forth and shared with me that she had worked this program twenty years ago when she was a young mother, and she had experienced first hand its benefits in her family, and then gone on to facilitate a group and became part of the organization that promoted it in her community. She wanted to share her experiences with me and find out how she might help. This seemed serendipitous, and of course I got stirred up about this project again and how much it is needed in any given community. Here I have this other design team, I’m putting my energy towards that, and then there’s this serendipitous, coming together of people over this other project. My question is: Is the timing right for this project too… is there wisdom in initiating and shepherding two projects at the same time? I guess I’m asking for direction. I don’t know if I have the ability to do this, so I am asking you to speak to me about these concerns.
MACHIVENTA: Gladly. First of all, you must realize the nature of these two different groups: One is your leadership group, which is long-term. It tends to be very intellectual and it is working at a long-distance to where it wants to be in the future. However, the lady who has come forward and volunteered is immediate, and this is palpable; this is a service that can be delivered now that has tremendous value to every young family—and grandparents—and those who do not yet have children, to help your future community to become sustainable. This group, this “Step Program” is a valuable item in the repertoire of community development that moves it towards social sustainability. It is immediately helpful because it assists individuals to think in terms of functionality, of participating responsibly in a community.
If we/you had a choice of where your energies should be brought to bear, it would be with the immediate group as there are individuals and families in your community who are suffering within their family due to dysfunction. You, as the point-person of the leadership group, can use this Step Program as a model for the development of other programs that would be helpful. You will find that eventually there will be a preteen, a teen program that assists in very similar ways. What we are seeking eventually is that there would be a person who is a facilitator—not a manager—but a facilitator of supportive programs that are in alignment with social stability and social sustainability. You, as the one who has the literal overview and long-term perspective of your community, would know which programs to support and those which not to, and to then have the means within the leadership group to bring forward the services that the leadership team can bring to bear to assist and support those service programs. Do you follow me?
Susan: Yes and no. Continue on.
MACHIVENTA: (Laughing.) Your leadership group both provides leadership for the future, as they are the significant people who have a greater weight in public opinion and persuasion with your community public, but also, they represent services that can be used to support those helpful programs on the immediate level. Do you follow that so far?
Susan: I did follow that, thank you.
MACHIVENTA: So that your leadership group has two functions: One is that it is involved in community planning, but it also lives in the moment, it lives in the now. These people also have access and have powers of persuasion to bring services, or ask other agencies, or companies, or groups to come forward to assist those service groups, such as the Step Program, so that they are supported and successful. If you have a disconnect between the planning and service, then they are not learning what their plans will be doing in the future. For us, all of these programs, whether we work with you with groups, or with you as individuals, it is always about training; it is always about learning; it is always about becoming a bigger person as you gravitate towards the morontial realm of living. Your leadership group must not escape into intellectual planning process, but also be involved in the pragmatics of community support and community stability and sustainability.
Susan: That became much more clear as you spoke. I was struck by your point that pursuing this Step Program could be a model for my leadership group. So the one project could serve a dual function. I think my creative energy to pursue the one has been there the whole time, but it seemed like I needed to have this leadership team in place first.
MACHIVENTA: Yes, it is an environment where you can hone and sharpen your skills. You do not need to be afraid that this will soak up too much of your time and you will become unavailable for your commercial interests, as you can use all venues to promote yourself as the local realtor and people seeing you in these responsible situations, will see you as amenable and easy to work with, and one who is a natural leader, and they will gravitate towards you when they have real estate involved.
Susan: Thank you. You pulled that question out of my concerns that I hadn’t even verbalized. I’m going to yield the floor right now to Michael or Roxie. I may have a final question that is my brother’s.
MMc: I don’t have any questions for you today. Roxie?
- What’s next in the New Era teachings?
Roxie: I have a couple. Machiventa, our readers are eager to know “what’s next?” In what ways will the New Era teachings be an up-step from the social sustainability teachings of the previous era, or can you answer that yet?
MACHIVENTA: I can answer that, and we have answered it in so many words before, but we have taught you about social sustainability, the intellectual aspects, the attitude aspects, the energy of it, the synergism of it, the reasons why it is needed and necessary. The New Era is a pragmatic extension of those explanations, a means of emplacing that in your communities with your co-creative participation. When we say “co-creative participation,” we mean exactly that. You have seen where Susan has been working in the community and suddenly a person comes forward with an idea of the Step Program who would like to teach that. We were involved in that, don’t you think? And so, she must now work co-creatively with us and the instructor of that program to devise places where it can be taught, and then solicit individuals to come and enroll in the program. This is an example of a co-creative program that is hands-on, it is palpable, it is pragmatic, it is useful and it is one of the incremental steps of moving a community forward into social stability and social sustainability. It will be interesting in the years ahead to see how this program and other programs develop that would decrease divorce, decrease runaways from home, decrease suicides, decrease abortions, and so on, so that we are interested in improving the social quality of life at the social level for individuals and for your social organizations, whether that is a family or a business, or the leadership team, or anyone else.
To answer your question quite bluntly is to move into the pragmatic realm, and that means conscious, intentional, co-creative participation between the individual and us. Many times individuals cannot hear us, do not have an open mind to hear us speak to them, though if they speak their intentions or what they want in their life and how they want to participate, [if] they say that aloud and they also have a non-interest in self-aggrandizement, then we will open opportunities for them to say, “yes,” and move ahead in the direction of their wishes. For those people who do hear, they need to sit in meditation once a day to be in contemplation, where we discuss this or you listen to us, or it can be in the stillness where you are in the space of “no thought,” where we can download our communications to your mind, and that you begin to see opportunities around you, to see the synchronicity, the happenstance, the coincidence of events so that you are drawn in the direction to fulfill your intentions of the work that you want to do that moves you, your family and your community towards social sustainability. This is a very pragmatic, hands-on program that we are going to initiate. As you can see, it has already begun with the efforts of Susan in her community, and we are involved in other communities as well. You see in this example how there is a conscious, open, transparent intention to assist the community. Many of you sit in your living rooms in your easy chair and meditate and while away the time, having good thoughts about what you would like to do, but what you see, just like the Quakers do, is that you need to “pray with your feet.”
- Bringing others into this program of co-creativity
Susan: Machiventa, are there others involved in projects in other communities that could be brought to these discussions? Are they readers of these sessions?
MACHIVENTA: Some are readers; some are not. Some are known through your social media and the projects that they are involved in, in their communities. Some do have projects that require minimal payment for classes, but nonetheless, there is an upliftment of good in the community where they live. There are many projects around the world that we are involved in; yours is the most obvious because we are speaking consciously to you and this is a point of discussion. There are many others, which are not known or not published, but they are ongoing. You will eventually see this program become more and more publicly known, as the good that wells out of it that is like an artesian well you will see, once you begin this process, you pierce the subject. Then it begins to well up and flow, and everyone gets wet with good ideas.
Roxie: As we seem to be having a little difficulty coming up with enough questions for each session, are there topics from the past series of lessons that were not covered sufficiently due to our failure to ask more probing questions that you would like us to go back to?
MACHIVENTA: Yes, there are! And I will leave your question as addressed to the audience, rather than answering that myself. It would be presumptuous for me to tell you what is important in your mind and what is not. It is time for those who have questions about unfulfilled explanations about past topics, which are still of interest, for them to come forward and ask questions that we can answer for them. Your question is well timed and is very appropriate. However, it is to the audience. We strive to train the audience to generate questions, or at least to record their questions and forward them to you to be asked. We do know that many people do have questions, but many times it evades their conscious effort to write them down. It is simply one of those flashing thoughts that go through your mind and if you do not record it, then it is lost. So, we ask our readers to record those flashing thoughts of inquiry so we can answer your questions. Thank you.
MMc: Susan, you said that you had a final question that you wanted to ask?
- Waking up the Christians
Susan: Yes, it was sent to me by my brother and it’s about the church: He says, “Last summer I asked Father what I can do to make a difference in my church and he said, ‘Wake them up! Help me open the windows and let the Spirit of Truth back in. So much of what passes for worship is mundane, repetitious reflection on the past. Worship is soul contact with my Spirit in the present. Wake my children up to this great truth; teach them to communicate with me. There is much help available to you to enlist in the Correcting Time; you need only ask. Simply state your intention and marshal your energy resolve and say, ‘Lead me forward, dear friends. I am ready for service. May Father’s Will be done as it is in heaven.’ It is time for the church to dig out from under the Bible and open itself to further revelation. It cannot, it must not live in the spiritual past. Tell your friends, ‘Now is the time. You are the ones you have been waiting for; seize the day.’”
My question is, “What can I do to help wake them from their peaceful slumber?”
MACHIVENTA: The point at which you would wake them up is the point at which you would assist your fellow believers and assist us, and that is the inherent conflicts in the theology of their beliefs. You have a very highly educated audience. They come to church numb, realizing that a lot of the reasoning that is given to them by the church, about its history, and about the “facts” of what occurred regarding the cross and Jesus’ life is in conflict. Those conflicts must be answered; they must be resolved. You know that God is One, that God is whole, that his Son, Jesus, was in complete union and harmony with him, and that God is a God of love and is consistent and never in conflict. It is important that you bring those conflicts into their awareness and have them resolved. Whenever you see conflict, then you see untruth. Untruth is untenable; it is unsustainable. Truth is sustainable; truth does contribute to growth, to inclusion, to wholeness, to holism and spiritual ascension. Untruth and conflict cause mortals to be stuck in their beliefs due to the authority of the church, due to the authority of the doctrine that was given.
- Needing acceptance
You, my friend, have asked for a very pointed mission and that is your mission! We know that you recede rapidly from conflict and from social conflict. We know that you heartily want to be accepted into the fold of your congregation. Yet, on the other hand, you have asked for us to give you a clear mission of what to do and how to contribute to the work of Jesus, to the clarity of the mission, and you called for the Spirit of Truth to do so. When you hear the voice of the Spirit of Truth, then speak; do not be shy. No one will take your head and put it on a platter; no one will hang you up on a cross, though you may have to stand in your own power in front of those who would wish you to go away.
Susan: Thank you for him. When you said it was important to bring the conflicts into their awareness, I see that’s exactly what he’s doing with the vignette project that he has undertaken. And yet, it seems that his question that he continues to want to do more and you said something very telling here, “We know you want to be accepted into the fold of your congregation,” yet I am getting the feeling that, that acceptance doesn’t go hand-in-hand with what he’s been asked to do, or what he’s asked to do and he’s been given power to do.
MACHIVENTA: Exactly, he has asked to be of more effect; he has asked to be in union with the Father’s Will, Christ Michael’s Will for Urantia and the Church—the larger Christian Church—and so, this will take him into social conflict with his congregation. There is the old group, the old believers, who have the motto, “Don’t rock the boat.” But this is something that needs to be done; it is time to break a few eggs to make a new omelet. It is time for him to bring forth the truth. He does not have to be brutal about it. John the Baptist was quite brutal about his message, but he needed to do that to get attention. His death too, was an accident of time and was not necessary for the work of Jesus’ mission. So too, it is not necessary that your brother come forward to be obnoxious and difficult. He is kind and persuasive; people know him to be a gentle soul, one of tremendous authority, and one who is surely an example of a God knowing individual. It is upon that reputation that he must rely that there will be those in the congregation who will come to understand his message and the truth that the Spirit of Truth brings forth through him. It is simply necessary that his minister support his actions and [does] not stifle the voice of truth that both of them have so earnestly asked to come forward and validate their messages. Do you understand?
Susan: I think I do. I was going to ask you what the personal consequences for him would be if this social conflict, which is obviously the fear that he wrestles with, that he continually has to turn over to God?
MACHIVENTA: Let me proceed. He has asked for a mission and he has been given a mission. It has been stated very explicitly to him. What will be jeopardized will be his hearty, good-ole-boy acceptance by the old standing members, and what is in jeopardy is that acceptance, and thus the other side of acceptance is rejection. He can anticipate that his messages of truth will cause difficulty in the beliefs and unthinking of unreasoning Christian believers, who would wish to have social complacency and mediocrity of faith, rather than a hot and sharply honed belief and faith that is rationally and intellectually and spiritually accurate. There will be those in his community that will support him, and see the justness of what he says and publishes, and there will be those who secretly, behind his back in the organizations of the church reject him and force him out. He may well be forced out, but he will be speaking the truth. There need not be a schism within that church organization; there can be a class for advanced believers and everything that [he] teaches would be in alignment with a loving God theory and theology. We hope this is more direct and to the point of what is in jeopardy. Acceptance can be passive, but rejection is overt.
Susan: Thank you so much! I don’t have any more actual prepared questions. I’m looking over what we have just spoken about to see if something wasn’t clear. There was so much here, and when Rayson spoke of consciousness, those were direct messages to those of us who are undertaking these projects and the need for us to go slowly and really listen.
- Closing statements on the New Era
MACHIVENTA: I will close our session today with this statement: Oftentimes, in projects such as the Correcting Time, or the exodus of the Hebrews from Egypt, or their captivity in Babylon, the members see this as a test. Many of you who read these messages are wondering, “Well, what now? Why are we waiting? What is going on? How do we proceed? We need direction.” And so, some of you have thought, “Well, this did not happen; you lied to us.” But on the other hand, you know that we do not lie. It is better to rephrase your question from, “Why did you do this?” to “What is it about this situation which caused this delay?” Oftentimes, the delays, whether they are global or whether they are social, or large, or they are with your ethnic group, or even racially as with the Hebrews, it is a matter of learning lessons. We have told you repeatedly that everything that is done here is a lesson. As we proceed with you consciously into the future to reform, to rebuild, reinvent, reframe your societies and your cultures, every part of that for your culture is a lesson; every part of that is a lesson for you, that there is something going on that needs to wait for completion.
Many times the delays have to do with the developmental continuum, that a new program will not begin until it has developmental integrity, meaning that if it does not have integrity, it is though you have a wheel on a cart that has one segment missing. Every time it rotates, it hits the flat spot and goes “clunk.” And so, you know and we know that the smooth operation of Christ Michael’s programs are smooth—they do not go “clunk, clunk,” they do not have segments missing; they have integrity, they have wholeness, they have a system’s approach to them where multiple systems work as an integral whole system, and so, oftentimes we must wait until mortals complete their necessary co-creative part of the developmental plan of the program. We have been waiting for this for some time with the New Era, and so it has not stalled, but it has been on hold until all segments are complete. Starting a program without its completion would be much like launching a rocket. Many of you may not be aware that rockets on the launching pad have clamps that hold them down until they develop complete thrust, and once that thrust and all engines are operating up to full power, then the clamps are released, releasing the rocket to lift itself off the pad and into the air. If there were only one of these clamps released and the other side was held, then the rocket would veer to one side and eventually crash. The program of the Correcting Time is so important and so whole, that the integrity of its entirety could be put off balance by the lack of integrity of a program, such as the New Era.
When we speak of the New Era, it is a global program; it is not just a national program, but a continental program—a multiple continental program. As well, it also operates at the local level, where it, too, must be whole, complete; it must not have any missing elements that jeopardize its integrity. When this launches, we want it to launch fully and co-creatively and as transparently as we possibly can without jeopardizing its functions in the future. You will find that when you hear about this new program as a pragmatic operation, you will lick your lips and wonder how you can get your fingers into it. And so, this is what you must guard against; you must wait, be patient and know that Christ Michael has designed the Correcting Time as a whole entity that began so long ago, and will come into its completion in the centuries and millennia ahead. Think large, my friends, but think also immediate. Think large as in terms of being in Paradise in the embrace of the First Source and Center, that most auspicious event which will inaugurate your entry into the Corps of Finality. So, too, you must see your own immediate life in your program working with the New Era, working with the Correcting Time in your local area. So it, too, proceeds to its completion in the fulfillment of the days of light and life. This is a time in the New Era where the one affects the all, as the all affects the whole, but in the beginning it will be so disproportionate because the individual will have such tremendous influence to affect the future of your world and your civilization. Thank you and good day.
