Group: N. Idaho TeaM
April 4, 1993
Greetings this is Elyon. I am pleased to be here. I always reinstate this because it is genuine, and my love is profound for this group. As I watch you in your daily struggles, I feel at times as the parent, and it is hard to not want to take you in my arms and comfort you in your times of need. As a teacher to the students, I have prepared a lesson.
Today I would like to talk to you about knowing- the word Knowing, an inner knowing- when that clarity hits, when you stop in your tracks and just know as if a light went off, an instant, a quick flash of knowing. When this does happen you can immediately know that your Thought Adjuster has communicated with you. Everyone has experienced this at times and know of which I speak. To have this communication more and more in your daily lives you would benefit a great deal, to know that you can tap into this communication when you need it the most. It is a matter of inner development, an inner wisdom, a knowing in order to do this. Your indwelling spirit talks with you, communicates with you always.
It is most difficult to be aware of this when going on with the daily doings and with the mind at work constantly chattering away. Begin to take your stillness that you experience during meditation and start practicing this throughout your day, to be able to bring your minds to a focus, to a stillness, to not just set the time of day aside for your daily quiet time but to know that you can implement this throughout the day. Train or program your mind, your body to instantly focus on the stillness. It is there for you as a gift. It is there for you like a gift, to be able to do this and know you can do this when it is most needed, rather than when you don't feel the opportunity rises, that you will have to wait until your time of day that you set aside for your quite time. Take an instant to bring in the quiet, to bring in the communication with the indwelling spirit. Speak to God on a constant basis; know that the communication is open; know that it only takes a matter of practice and a matter of experiencing this.
Once you have experienced this other than the times when it stops you in your tracks, but to know that this can happen on a constant basis, that you can communicate and receive. And while this other is helpful and many times brings you into the aware-nesses you need to grow and serve others, it sometimes takes longer than what is needed to fulfill the serving task at the time. While there are always opportunities that rise to serve your brothers and sisters, to have this at hand for you would be very beneficial, to have the communication open. Like being able to call on a teacher in a class room at all times for you’re answers. And know also that there can be blockages and through the dual nature systems closed down to this communication; this is part of the process to open up the channels to integrate and have the whole system work in harmony, to have the animalistic part of you to work with the spiritual part of you. Know that this will always come up for you while you are on Urantia while you are in the physical. The communication that is there for you can open up a whole new territory, a whole new realm to be experienced. It is not about communicating with us. It is about communicating with God, with your indwelling spirit.
Welcome to the late comers. I am pleased to have you here. I want you to go forth this week to communicate with your in- dwelling spirit. Keep a mental note to do this throughout the day. If you do not hear anything do not feel that you failed. Continue, for to start you can practice communicating to your indwelling and then listen when you have a moment, when you are driving, at work, when you are on break, to communicate, to ask for an answer, to be grateful and appreciative and give thanks. Through the day as things come up for you turn things over to God and know that your answers will come. You may not hear them right away; but once you have experienced the communication you will know you, will have an inner knowing. I urge you to do this, this week, to develop a relationship with your Thought Adjuster, to hear the answers, to communicate, to turn over, to have faith, to trust. This my students will help you to build your foundations, help to give you strength to go out. What a magnificent tool you have. What a wonderful gift. God has given you this. Feel not that you have to hold some things back or that some things may seem silly. Communicate all things. Learn that you can turn your life, your struggles, your problems over, and that as your answers come in, and the more clear you hear them, the more clear your thoughts become. And when these sudden impulses come to you, when you know that inner knowing, thank your Thought Adjuster, thank God.
Feel not unworthy. Feel worthy to use this for all things in your life no matter how petty. For in doing this you will find out your true selves. You will see your true patterns. You will see what comes up for you on a day to day basis . This will help with the lesson last week also. I will now accept questions.
Question: Greetings Elyon I want to thank you for last weeks lesson on goals and mapping. I feel like it has help shift me out of slacker mode into a mode of diligence. And I found myself this week, in applying the lesson, to be quite successful. I would like to let you know that next Sunday two friends from Sandpoint would like to come down to the meeting and meet you. They are excited about the process. One fellow has pawed through over 800 pages of transcripts from around the country and has put in a prayer for a teacher himself. So I would like to let you know that this is taking place. I would like to re-ask for your participation with me on the Prodigy Bulletin Board service. With the Teaching Mission category there is lots that can be posted. Would you like to present comments for the nation?
Elyon: First of all we welcome newcomers. Tell them they are very welcome. And I will look forward to meeting them. I know of them and this is noted. And as far as the computer, yes I am very well aware of this, and we have vast communications on our end that we are working on, and yes, we encourage you to work on these communications from your end; and yes, we can get together if you wish and work through some of these things. You, my friend, are very close to hearing your teacher. And when this happens you can also use your teacher for this. I will not reveal the name to you as this is very good practice.
Question: Hello Elyon. About work: You said to take time for stillness in talking to your Father at work. But I also wonder at work about sharing things with your fellow workers and to what extent do you cross the limit of sharing things in an atmosphere where religion is not a primary focus? I feel an urging at sharing things, but then I also hold myself back as well. I would like you to talk on this if you could.
Elyon: Yes this is a problem for all. And know that when the love and the light of the Father is glowing through you, when you are a channel for this, when you are doing the will, you're putting forth for others to see; you are instilling through your experience, through your actions for others to see, without being on a soap box preaching during your breaks. Others will want what you have. And, my friend, you have missed part of the lesson today, but this will be very good practice for you to listen for your answers. Listen and know the discernment that will come in when you can speak about this and when not. You will learn. You will all learn to have a feel for people and know where they are, to understand where they are. And through this you will also know when and when not to present this. The important factor here is to do the will of God, to understand yourselves what the will of God is, how to serve your brothers and sisters through this. And that as a goal will help many. Do not be so concerned about pulling them in or suggesting or advising them to come over to your side, rather through your actions you are going to benefit them. Does this help?
Question: Yes, thank you. I'm glad you talked about the soap box. Sometimes I feel like standing up on a soap box and screaming, or better yet from the mountain tops. And sometimes I realize that patience is necessary to hold myself back. So thank you for your answer today.
Question: Hello Elyon, It's nice to have you here today. I'd like to thank you for the lesson. In thinking about communicating with the spirit within myself I think of my experience in my attempts do so, and there's been several times I felt like I have had communication with my Thought Adjuster, but I have trouble discerning that to a point where I feel assured. I was wondering if you would address that a little further, as to how to discern?
Elyon: Yes, this is also very difficult for a lot of times one has to, or it helps to, understand the other individual to know their motivations. And as Gloria is experiencing, this lesson is experienced the hard way. Go within your true self, the real part of you, the heart part of you, and check there first. Do not allow the ego reign over this. There are many old survival mechanisms that come up when discerning. There are many things that each of you have built up within you over the years. Many belief systems. Learn to go within to find that quiet moment, if you are only allowed a spit second to practice this, to know, to be able to discern if it is really you making the decision, an old survival behavioral pattern, simply the ego. Also discern what your true intent is on discerning. When one is communicating with God on a full time basis, and when one starts receiving his answers and understanding what the true will of God is, discernment comes easy because your true intent is always for the good of all. And know that this takes practice, and know that you are not going to fly out tomorrow and save the world through your discernment. Patience. Does this help?
Question: Yes, it does thank you.
Question: Hi Elyon, just since I've heard you talk a couple of times I have really noticed a large difference in my life, the lesson today and your answer to the above question has answered the questions I was going to ask. I have a very strong sense of spiritual help with me when I go about my daily business, and I just can't tell you how much that means to me. I always felt sorry for myself when people weren't around. I would feel lone- some. I don't feel that when I'm alone now. I look forward to the alone times. I feel very privileged to be your student. I could never thank you enough. Thank you.
Elyon: This is noted, and know that you are well on your way. You are finding in your communication. You are opening up the channel. You strive and desire wholeheartedly in your heart the path of the Father.
Question: In talking about the lesson, in practicing the stillness throughout the day, I've tried from time to time, and I think I do this on an unconscious level, when I run into a situation where I feel like I need some help I invite God in to help me. I was wondering if this is close to what you are suggesting we practice throughout the week?
Elyon: Yes, however take this one step further and not only invite God in but turn over your problem for him to give you the solution. So in that way you can learn and understand more of His will. I will take one more question.
Question: In a personal communication this week you spoke of a good friend of yours, and I realize that it was Michael your were talking about. I was wondering about the coincidence of my lesson and my friend's lesson. And if that was really such a co- incidence or a planned thing? They were so much alike.
Elyon: Yes, everything is planned when it comes to the lessons. In order for you to share and grow things are brought forth and presented in ways to the individuals so that they can comprehend on their level. When we as teachers are assigned to the groups, we are assigned to groups that are felt that we...that I, as an individual, could benefit you, as individuals on your levels, that I was qualified to do this, that I suited this group. I am here to help each and everyone of you. And for all that can hear my words at a group level, or at an individual level, that I am here for you. Know that we are networking synchronized. And that there are many of us, and that we have a lot of communication with your personal guides and your angels. So know that there is not much that passes us by.
I will close now and want to have you go forth this week and communicate with your indwelling God. If you feel that you are one sided in doing all the talking remember to stop and listen. My love to you. Have a good week.
Group: Thank you.
April 7, 1993
To the interest of all who would hear in openness, I come to you with love. I thank you for gathering. It is a pleasure to speak with you in the service of Michael. We come to offer guidance, insight, and support. Our ever on-going mission is to bring you to the understanding of this Creator Son, this sovereign ruler of this universe, and through him to the understanding of our Father in Paradise. We also come to bring you to the personal awareness of your inner guide, your Father within, to the extent that you can understand Him. We try to bring your communion and contact more clear.
I am excited for the progress that I see within this group and among all throughout this mission. We are moving with all the authority that we have been given by Michael to bring the change to a better way, to understanding, to love, to hope, and to caring. As we teach in turn so do we hope that you would teach as well by your actions, by your understanding, and with love. The intellectual understanding of God has its place and is needed for well-rounded understanding. But too many have relied on attempting this for too long. The focus must be shifted to the spirit awareness of the Father and the ministry that flows from the Trinity. I care to give you this message because I truly hope that you will see the perspective that we would wish for you to take. In giving focus to your understanding of spiritual ideals, learn knowledge of God but also step out to experience God. As a whole you are doing this more and more throughout your lives, taking the chance to see what is not perceptible to the eye. Look for your Father everywhere, for that is where He is, within, without, around, above...omnipotent.
Question #1: Greetings Elyon, I'd like to introduce you to our guests this evening, Harold and Angel Holloway, and Will Venard from Bonners Ferry, Idaho.
Question#1: Last Sunday you said I was not far from a teacher, and that it was up to me to discern the name. I am not at the point of grasping that name though I think I have a clue, but I will hold out for confirmation. In meditation Tuesday morning I felt the presence of that teacher and yourself, in the faint comment "I am here and Elyon is here with me". Could you please elaborate on that and offer some anticipation of what might be next?
Elyon: In your time of listening we come to observe and to attempt connections. As subtle as they may be at first they will increasingly grow stronger as you give more time. Your guide is there for you. If you choose the time to listen, he will come on a moment's notice that you give. Experience the assuredness in your heart that your understanding is growing clearer as you allow it. You will have the opportunity to converse within a very short time. I encourage you to take those opportunities as they come. Reach out, for we are reaching to you as well as all of you. Does this help you?
Elyon: You are welcome.
Question #2: I had an interesting day today at work. I had a couple employees quit, and they sighted personal problems with my management techniques. The feeling I get is that I haven't reached out to them in a spiritual way. I had distanced myself from these particular employees. I felt at a loss as to how to correct that with these people or anyone else in the future. Do you have any insights on how anyone could reach out to people in an antagonistic situation between employer and employee when it's already difficult to bridge that gap?
Elyon: There are many difficulties that arise out of situations where one has authority. From two viewpoints there is often a lack of understanding in seeing where the other comes from. In reaching out to these, you may not be able to correct this situation, and there may be a shifting of ideals. With this, how did the hostilities arise?
Question#2: It seems like it built up over a long period of time with a particular person, feeling that he could do a better job of running jobs than I could. He cited several mistakes that had happened on jobs. I thought that mistakes always happen; there are always oversights that need correcting; it's inevitable. He'd be very unforgiving of those things. He also felt like a spokesman for our crew. If there was a gripe going around the crew, he would take it on personally to come to me, to protect the guys, to defend them. Hostilities grew over time. There was poor communication, things not getting expressed. The feedback that I got is that I haven't been the type of employer where I compliment my employees. I tend to come on the job not knowing what's going on. I would give criticism and people took offense at that, which I understand.
Elyon: Do you sense that you would like to open more with them?
Elyon: Then make the attempt at this without worrying how it will be viewed. The first step is always best when it is one that is taken for understanding. This man felt within that he may have been the one to represent the faults that the workers had seen. Which may have caused discomfort and a negative reaction within you. It is quite possible that your working relationship cannot be repaired, but as an individual you might reach out by either a letter or a phone call and just extend any understanding that you can find from the situation and offer no negative feelings. Do you feel that you could have him back? Or does this occurrence seem to be better for the working aspect?
Question: If we didn't have a suitable replacement, we could take him back, but unless things change in our relationship it wouldn't be a comfortable situation. It may be better for this parting to have taken place.
Elyon: Then if you truly feel this way, then that may be so. But still within yourself, you may reach out as a farewell and offer any feelings of regret that you may have had in the situation. Just to let him know that you did care. Does this answer you?
Elyon: In your awareness you can come to realize the presence of many personalities as teachers. I do not know specifically of this occurrence but there are also guides, angels, and of course, the inner presence of your Father that can impart knowledge. You seek to understand in your life the Father and the ways to bring this personally to yourself. With your willingness it will come. In the beginnings as already for you are allowing yourself to open to the possibilities of connection. Your guide will come to you when you are fully prepared. But know that this entire mission is to bring you to the awareness of God through the Father, the Son, by Michael, and in the Spirit. So as you turn your thoughts to the Father, you open the channels for the love to flow from Him, through His mission, to you. And sometimes that form of love may materialize into contact.
Does this answer you?
Question:#3: I guess it's something I can chew on for a while. Thank you.
Elyon: Thank you for asking.
Question4 : Thank you for speaking with us tonight. I am among other things an artist and have in the past tried to facilitate spiritual growth for myself as well as others through my art work. Everything that I have seen and read so far in this movement has been mainly verbal, through transmissions. I was wondering if there's a plan for a broader approach maybe including the arts? If so, how is that best facilitated?
Elyon: Your want is noted and realize that art in all its forms of high intent is somewhat inspired by the presence of the spirit around you. When one looks upon a picture of a beautiful landscape, there is a certain inner chord that may be struck to them for understanding. It is a recognition of beauty, which is an attribute of the Father. So the endeavors are open for this and know that worldwide there is much assistance for the spiritual beauty to be expressed through art whether it be through writing, music, painting, whatever form it may take. And there are some within this mission who are working with guides that are suited for these purposes. You, in your willingness to be given a teacher for yourself, have received this already. It is time that will bring understanding. Dedication to the Father in prayer and communion will facilitate the connection. By listening, focusing it all away and bringing yourself to the state of just listening for a response, give yourself this time and you will feel it. The guide that you receive will be suited to your personality. And the expression that you give from this can come in any form that you wish. For that is why we are here, to offer you guidance in whatever form of searching you would take.
Does this answer you?
Question:4 Yes, it does. I want to clarify. Should I be looking for a direct connection with my guide for this insight; or should I be looking for my own personal growth and producing things that I see coming out of that?
Elyon: Both, work on your inner growth for this connection will come as a result of your attempts at communion with your Father. When you go to the stillness, take the time to focus your love to the Father. Offer all your thankfulness and then bring yourself to a state where you can best listen for a response, while the Father will surely impart His wisdom in whatever way He can. And know that we do not infringe upon your connection with Him. It is through your willingness to understand more fully the Father that we will be allowed to come through this connection to you.
Does this clarify?
Question#4: Yes, it does very much. Is there a teacher that is attempting to reach our group and if so, how can we help?
Elyon: By being open which also answers the first part of your question. For as you reach out, it is recorded of your desire and the motions are already going forth for the designation to be given. And it has. To whom specifically I cannot say, for we will always as teachers look for the possibilities of connection in time. If all strive within my group, then I could connect with each and every individual to some extent personally. But for some, call it chance, luck of the draw, whatever you will, they have the capacity to hear, and this is not necessarily a spiritual reflection on their personality. But it just seems that some are easily suited for reception. With the adjustments being made ever and on going, all who desire will receive in time. So listen, for the attempts are being made and it will come through to you.
Does this help you?
Yes, it does. Thank you.
Elyon: You are welcome.
Question #5: You have given a lot of really good advice and suggestions for making contact. Of all that advice can you suggest particulars that would apply in my case? What do I need to be doing, not doing, or doing differently that would assist in making contact, or should I just be patient?
Elyon: I know you may be beginning to dislike that word, but it is and it ever will be the most crucial element of this mission: patience. But you are not so far as you would think from understanding . You just need to continue to listen. Reach out to the Father with love. Offer your thoughts and offer yourself then listen. As hard as it may be to drown out the thoughts and all the worries and excesses that run through--(tape flipped, some lost.)--that you have in your life. (noise)...diffuse and work on the diffusion of the outlying worries to the focus of love on the Father. By doing this you create the channel which will bring the awareness through. Many times it begins with the feelings you have. Let them happen and when they happen, do not close them off by trying to analyze the feeling. Just let the feeling happen and listen through all that is occurring. Listen, and as the thoughts start to flow, don't shut them off again as so many do, for it is so easy to mistake the impressions. Just take them one word, one fragment, or one sentence at a time and say them, write them, record them, whatever method suits. But above all listen with patience.
Does this help you?
Yes, thank you.
Elyon: You are welcome and let me extend my thanks to you for your dedication. For it is very difficult for one to continue with something when they sense the growth not occurring as they would like. Just be open and thank you.
Would there be any more questions tonight? "It doesn't look like it."
Elyon: Then let me say that I thoroughly enjoy you, all of you who come to these gatherings for it offers me the chance to grow beyond what I am already. To see the patterns of understanding that you take and the searching, the seeking, the desire, and the attempt to move forward. From the teaching viewpoint it is a satisfactory process. In understanding focus yourself always to the Father and the Trinity. The understanding comes from your seeking here. Thank you. Good night.
April 11, 1993 Easter
To become the instrument for the Father's peace to flow, to allow the force of love to be part of your awareness and part of the awareness that you let out to others, to be simple in your approach, open, honest, sincere, loving; to have faith, undying faith, in the Father above and within and that the purpose that you have been given is real for you; this is the method one should take towards revealing the Father in their lives, the same method given by Michael so many of your years ago. As Jesus of Nazareth he went forth proclaiming the good news to everyone, not just those that established tradition had made more important. Not just to authority but his message was to bring everyone, regardless of belief, regardless of heritage, nationality, or race, everyone to his love and through him to the Father's love. Expand your thinking to bring the knowledge of Jesus, Christ Michael, and what he has done for your world and the universe into your heart. To have the knowledge of Jesus and the way he put forth for you to live is one thing in understanding. But I say to you today as Elyon, your guide, to reach out, to feel him. He is there. He is around you. His presence fills this room. So reach out. (long pause)
Michael: In love I come today to give a message to all who would hear. In body I came. In spirit I left to return a spirit among you all. It is my utmost desire for you to understand that the spirit is there for you, to be with you as a support and as a guidance to bring you to the Father's love. Share with me. Don't pray to me as though I'm far. This presence is for all of you to know if you let it. Take it. It is yours in witness of the truth.
It shall be. My love. (long pause)
There is such beauty in seeing the outreach, both as it comes through the networking of us, through the Sons, the Spirit, to the Father, but as well to see the grasping of the message of the love, of the understanding that you so desire as mortals. In listening to the prayers that you so often open with, I see the increasing desire to be of service whatever that may be. Service, it is the entire point. It is the only purpose that matters. It is the desire to reach out, to share the love and understanding and compassion that you have been so fortunate to receive in your own lives. This is my calling, and this is your calling - to be of service. In realizing the spirit presence from the three, as it comes from the Trinity in different forms for recognition on different levels of understanding...the threefold ministry is so designed to bring you to the awareness of God the Father, the Son, the Spirit. In your lives countless numbers of times you have felt the presence of the spirit in it's upholding. On occasion you have been aware of the presence of the Son, from Michael through his mission, and his spirit. This awareness of truth as it rings straight into your being, this recognition is that which Michael gives forth to...(transmission interrupted) The Spirit of Truth answers to the understanding of the mind in the leading of the heart - the indwelling guide. The connection of the spirits of the three are in harmony to bring the function of the force, the love of God to creation.
This comprehension of these spirit presences will become more accessible to you as individuals as you in turn reach out to the awareness of the presence, to the recognition; for as these spirits influence you, many times the recognition is not there due to the lack of the mind and body to realize these presences. And the only way that this discernment can grow is for your willingness to let it grow, to search it out, to seek the Father within, to seek and pray and commune - to allow yourself the time for recognition. Take the steps, the stillness, the reflection, the time just to share your life with the Father. This personal time is the single most important aspect of spiritual growth. Take the time as well to reach out to your creator, Michael. He will listen, and he will come with understanding as well. His purpose, as is the purpose of this mission, is to bring increasing enlightenment of the Father and his will to each of you; that we listen back.
Hello, I am Elyon, your guide for understanding. It is good to see you this evening as you gather. To see new faces and hold coming together. I would open to you now for any questions that you would have.
Elyon: Welcome. It is good to meet you.
Question: I'd like to ask two questions: The first being, I detected Sunday a little astonishment on your part at the presentation of Michael and his message. Out of curiosity, were you so astonished?
Question: As I've said before it's been a pleasure getting to meet someone who loves Michael as much as my fellow mortals do and is not from this planet. The second question is from a friend from Sandpoint, he is asking if he could be assigned a teacher, or if one is assigned to him how may he become aware of this? Is there some insight you could pass along to him? This is an oft asked question, but I think us curious mortals would love to find some insight in that way.
Elyon: First of note, your friend, his willingness has been noted. And in his desire to be aware, he will receive the guidance of a teacher. As to the methods for understanding, yes, this is a very popular question. And I would ask you to offer him the insights on the stillness that have come forth in the past. And I would like you to explain to your friend your understanding of how the process is for you. I would add: focus, time, listening, and the increasing amounts of time that he would spend in reflection to the Father. Does this answer you?
Question: Yes, Thank you, and I will accept the assignment.
Question #2: Last week you mentioned the Trinity, and I was going to ask why you brought that up. It seems like you already answered that tonight. Do I understand correctly that you are encouraging us to be able to distinguish the different influences of the three component parts of the Trinity. We've come to understand that spirit influences felt as one. Even though we dabble in trying to distinguish all the various influences, it sounds like you are encouraging us to pursue distinguishing these different spirits.
Elyon: Perhaps the most important searching, and the most important understanding that you can gain, is the awareness of the different spiritual presences. It starts here; as incomprehensible as they are now, it is the eternal quest of all ascenders to realize the presence of the three parts of divinity, Father-Son-Spirit. The best method I would say to take, at this stage, is to take the time to offer yourself to the different aspects, to the Father, of course, in your communion, to Michael in prayer and love, and to the influences of the Spirit through the angelic forces, your guardians. As you give the time to offer your thanks, love, questions, to the different forms of spiritual influences make a note as to how these experiences effect you. For they may seem indistinguishable, as one now; but as time goes by you will recognize certain flavors, aspects, of the experience that will help you to realize, and maybe in time, understand the differences of spirit influence. Does this answer you?
Question: I'm looking forward to working on this. Thank you.
Elyon: your welcome.
Question #3: Elyon this is Thomas. For some reason tonight I'm very curious what you and the other beings do with your day. I can see you checking in on groups, but when you are done do you have a physical form? Do you go sleep in a bed? Do you partake in food energy? Do you get together at the club? Could you fill us in on what your life is like?
Elyon: It is not so abnormal as you think. Rest periods do not occur as frequently as they do in mortal life. We do partake of energy of a sort; not a food as you would describe it. But in comparison - similar. A lot of my time as it pertains to this mission is dedicated to the furtherance of the plans that have initiated. There are many meetings, both with the fellow teachers, angels, midwayers, and higher beings as well. There are communications with Ham frequently, and Daniel, Aaron. There is sort of a regional coordination. Quite regularly information is passed along from myself and back from Machiventa. He oversees with unmatched dedication to this service. This is the mission of his Father as well as all of ours. And that is a personal driving force for him as well as the rest of us. Communication with Michael is still, for me, a personal communication as regards the mission. Most information will come from Machiventa to us. In this phase of attainment that I am in there is some rest and recreation time, but most of my time I am very involved. Sometimes to the point of being boring and ignoring free time. But of course I always try to do better in allowing myself the time. Does this aid your curiosity?
Question: I suppose it whets it more than anything. Perhaps at another time you could share more of what life is like for you.
Can you tell us what level of attainment you are at?
Elyon: Nice try. I am fused. That is all.
Question #5: While we are on the point of curiosity, Elyon. You had mentioned that you were from a quarantine planet, so no doubt you've experienced what a rebellion is all about. And you mentioned that you have been in a mission like this before. Was that mission on a different planet or was it in regards to this planet and the progress we are making here?
Elyon: I have been involved on this planet for what you would consider a lengthy time. Not a life time. Not a day. Somewhere in between. Experience in teaching was not on this planet. And it was not quite the same in circumstance. But I an drawing near the borders, and so I back off. Your curiosity has been well subdued. I guess I do not want to feed too much. For remember the purpose. Facts are irrelevant. It is the spiritual understanding that is the goal. But I understand curiosity. I still have bouts with it myself, at times. Would there be anymore questions this evening?
Elyon: While I don't have the entire understanding of where this is going, your purpose is being defined over time by the levels of your willingness. Service, as part of my message tonight, is a key element to the mission. And `Ta Da', you're already doing it on some levels. As your inner security and confidence grow, and your knowledge of the Father's will for you, your specifics will become more clear. But there are no cut and dried roles at this time. And though I do not like to give direct instructions, for that borders close to impingement on will, this could occur. But it would always be with your willingness to accept or reject. But for now - it's progression to the Father. Would there be any more questions this evening?
I would like to thank you all for your interest and your willingness to seek. Reach out to the spirits of God around you and within. Allow them a place in your life. Let your resolve grow towards the purpose your Father would give. To doubt at times is natural. Face them. Listen, for the call of your spirit. It will come. And for some it has. So follow in love the way set forth for you. Thank you.
- April 18,1993
What we bring to the world is hope, hope from many that there will be an expansion, a growth of understanding, understanding in love, in the Father's way. This is most gratifying to see you gathered today in fellowship, sharing your love, your hope, your understanding with those around you. Not to be afraid to reach out and share yourself, your dreams, your thoughts. The steps are being climbed slowly but progressively for all of you.
I am Elyon your guide, and I see so much potential within this room. The possibilities for the light to shine to so many different people. This is your quest this week: To go out, to share, to be open, to let your light shine to the God in everyone else's heart. Be mindful not to scare with too much but take the chances to give the love that you know to those who may not expect it. And then the hope, the light, may be extended to them and to those that they know. There is no great and secret detailed mission of vital importance. It is the inter-communication, the sharing the feelings you have, the reaching out. Don't be afraid to say that you love life and that things will get better, for as more and more people begin to give out this love and this hope for better things, the more people that are down in despair and futility, the more that these people may believe that it is actually possible for things to get better. Make it your purpose to give love, to see the ways that you can create positive circumstances. To stop and to communicate with one out of the norm is a wonderful surprise to their day. To give aid to someone broke down on the side of the road, both literally and figuratively, is the first step towards repair. To share your message, to be willing to hear another's word, to be tolerant, to be open; these are all the goals for attainment. You already know to reach inside to your Father, so do this and find the time to make it possible. The understanding will come. And today I say branch out that love that is overtaking you. Find the ways to let it flow. I am sure by knowing you that you will make this happen. I would open now for any questions. Welcome.
Thank you for being here. I'd like to state a little about how I've been feeling. I find the physical world very overwhelming. It's hard for me to back away. My priority is to be focused on God but it's hard for me to get focused on my priorities. Seems like the physical world intrudes such that it's all I think of. Sometimes I feel sad, but I feel okay.
Elyon: Sad, but good? Seems somewhat contradictory. You should realize the love you have both from the spiritual sense and from those around you. This should be your key for satisfaction. Your priorities are just that. Priorities. Focus on what you want to do. Visualize the steps, not the last step but the first step, to make it happen. Don't let the pressures bear you down. They are just barriers to be stepped over. Where does your sadness stem from?
It feels like I'm so inadequate for the things that are laid out before me.
Elyon: Then this brings confusion to me. I know your potential and I see your growth. The entire thrust of my mission is to let you know that you cannot be inadequate to the Father for He lives within you. You give so much hope to this mission. We've worked hard to bring you to it. So if time restraints have slowed you somewhat from your desires, this means little to eternity and your love is still where it should be. So brighten up. (group laughter) This is not so rough. Focus your energy. Turn away the excess, and keep on keeping on. This is what I would say to you, friend.
Thanks, Elyon. I think we all needed that message. I think of our group doing great things on a great mission and go out and spread the word. Your lessons are on love and understanding and honesty and trustfulness, things we need for personal growth. Are you talking the little things we do like loving a person who is unlovable or buying the child a new pair of shoes, whatever, extending our hand to the many wants the human race has here? Are we on this mission day to day to be loving and kind or are we going to go on some great, exciting mission?
Elyon: The undying question. I guess I will have to make you wonder some more for I cannot answer that at this time. Your mission is most definitely a day by day mission of outreach. As you dedicate your self to the Father's will you must know that this means service, serving the Father's purpose in any way you can. If it means to stop and let someone go before you, then that is also selflessness. If it means to just love with tolerance for that is also selflessness. To be open to the ideas that others have, to see their purpose and to appreciate their want.
By this spiritual growth we speak of and that we continually try to bring you to, this growth brings your outer assuredness, brings your purpose or fire to the forefront. As you grow in understanding of the Father, as you learn within, not just in a mental way but to experience and know within as a learned behavior the love and the caring, then these traits of growth that come to you will naturally flow to others. This begins your outreach of love.
Specific mission, I cannot tell you it won't happen. With your willingness to cooperate, because with dedication to the Father you have put self aside to some extent, if a need were to arise of some nature, then if you personally or as a group could fulfill that need, then it could be asked if you want to do this. This is not foreseen at this time. You do have a purpose personally and together but this is general: to bring love.
Does this answer you? #2: Yes, it does. Thank you.
Elyon, I'd like to comment on what you said. I'm reminded of how the Master said that if any comes saying the kingdom is here or the kingdom is over there not to listen to them, that the kingdom is within. I'm reminded to tell this to myself when I wonder what the mission will bring. At this time I'm reminded of a letter from a friend in California saying: Have you heard about the Melchizedek school they're bringing? You'll have to run real hard to beat me to the door! I guess I should step aside and let him go first to practice selflessness. I anticipate that we are in training and growing and laying the foundations that are very important towards a function in the sense of the mission. If we now knew what the object of the mission is, we would anticipate that without laying the necessary groundwork for our ability to function well. Please elaborate on that.
Elyon: There is always a course that must be followed. The glory cannot be attained by taking just the final step. Preparation, growth lead further up the stepladder so this is why you work to develop your own understanding now. It is all in anticipation of future attainment. But the patience is required in growth to realize that you have not yet learned how to take the final step. You must go with each understanding, with each insight, with all the knowingness to take the next step, not the last step. And this is why we prepare. Preparation decreases the chance for failure. By learning you see the ways to make things happen, they become a part of you. Then you can move on.
You speak of this school by the Melchizedek to run to. But if you run too far you might leave the classroom. For it is wise to understand that as a servant of Michael and therefore Machiventa as well, that your school, your classroom is here. And for all intents and purposes this school is building everyday and is already up and running. So many times people see the physical aspects of a statement. But it must be realized that ever and always we will speak in terms of the spiritual. So listen, understand and grow to the next step.
Does this answer you?
Yes, thank you.
Elyon: You are welcome. #3: The teacher Oren in Naperville, Illinois has announced that there will be this visualization experiment coming next Saturday. Some of the people in our group as you are no doubt aware have been curious about this event and would like to in some way participate with you and with the other teachers in this experiment. Could you please comment on that and particularly what time of day we should do this?
Elyon: I see and note your desire but I decline to comment on this.
It's hard for me all the talk about future missions, anticipating the future. I like the talk you gave about focusing on the week and what we could do here and now. I also have trouble with vague answers. A simple yes or no I can relate to better. "I decline to comment." and...
Elyon: Can I say something?
Elyon: Because of an agreement that I have made...
Elyon: (the TR) This reason is why I cannot speak on this matter. You must be open to the possibilities in this happening. It is a localized event. And as I also spoke of earlier, the mission is no grand specific design. It is a way of identifying in ongoing outreach. And this is the purpose. Just to bring people to the growth within themselves, which in itself brings them the courage to share with others. And as for vague answers, I would apologize. Sometimes I cannot be specific. (Tape flipped.
asked about whose authority Elyon was under.)
Through Machiventa, but as well through Michael. I could just say no, but I sense sometimes that that would seem impersonal or as an admonishment which I would not want to do. And also as many could attest, I seem to drag things out so I'll be quiet.
Elyon, I'd like to say in regards to this concept of a mission, I feel like I have to do a lot of work on myself before I can do any good for just about anyone else, I have a hard time dealing with some of the people I come in contact with and expressing the love I'd like to express to people. If I'm going to serve God I'll have to first take care of myself.
Elyon: Very well said. I agree.
My impression about the mission is . .. I'm reminded of how Jesus was always trying to tone the apostles down. They kept thinking something grand and glorious was in store for them in working with Jesus. We should keep in mind that we have those same tendencies that the apostles had. To realize that "the kingdom is here, the kingdom is there, no it is within." Well, the school is here, the school is there, well, the school is probably primarily within. And within our personal sphere of reference the school is the people we run into, we are all in school together. My impression of the mission is that we all pretty much know what is going on and we just have to get better at it.
Elyon: Thank you for your comments. And by your understanding, I would grade you as an A. (Group laugh.)
Question: Do you feel like an apostle?
Yeah, I guess I do. The apostles were told by Jesus to go out and tell people the good news and I think he's told all of us the same thing. We're not living physically with him but we're still being taught by him and yeah, I do. We have our instructions from Jesus and that's the definition of apostles.
Elyon: Very good. An apostle is one who is willing through their dedication to do whatever is necessary to bring the love of God and the truth to those around them, regardless of self. So when you identify with the apostles, you should realize as well that you have this same purpose within you all that are willing.
Would there be any more questions?
Elyon: Yes. That is the highest concept you can offer. To expound further that you are all children of this same God regardless of name. That by faith you shall attain Him in your life and to spread the love which is the transforming power of God. You may share this in a wide variety of ways but it should always be with these few truths in mind.
Does this answer you?
Yes, thank you. I have trouble with my love for Jesus and the apparent indifference I encounter with others. Rather than trying to upset their belief systems, I want to turn them on to Jesus but I don't know how.
Elyon: This is because the Christ message was unfortunately racialized and nationalized by a certain area of the world and there has been much that has been put on his label that does not fit. The approach to those with a negative opinion of the Creator might be to take out the name and express the values that Jesus upheld. The introduction of his name universally as Michael in your book was done for this reason. There is no greater disservice that one can do than to integrate this new understanding into just the Christian world. It must be spread worldwide.
And so to give your understanding of Jesus to those around you, try hard to live his life the best you can and share the open values that he upheld. And in a sense it is good to speak to the level that you are spoken to about your understanding. Regardless, it is literally true that everyone will know Christ Michael at one time or another.
Does this answer you?
Yes, thank you.
Elyon: Then I will share with you my deepest appreciation for this class. You listen and then you act, forever trying to increase your awareness of the love around you and within. I thank you for your dedication and Father Michael offers his love as well. Reach out and share. Farewell.

Greetings, this is Elyon. I am most pleased that you are doing this as often as you can.
To bring yourselves back into the spiritual realm benefits you greatly. As you go about your daily duties it is sometimes easy to get stuck in the materialistic part of life on Urantia. And to meet in groups and pray and share helps you with your spiritual growth. To know that you have each other's support and comfort helps you each; helps each one of you whether you are close or at a distance. You have these bonding friendships to serve you and with thoughts with each other helps to bring back into the spiritual circle. I feel that tonight I can address each one of you personally and as a group on how remarkable you are all doing. On how much you truly care and I commend you on your outstanding efforts you put forth each day on serving the Father and this mission. I am very fortunate to be your teacher and friend and feel a very true and warm companionship from each of you also. I do not share my feelings very often, but I wanted to share this with you tonight, as I become overwhelmed, and I am in awe of each and every one of you and wish to express this. I too learn from you. And when dealing with the hardships of life sometimes it becomes as though your bogged down and cannot see the light, however you all do very nicely at bring yourselves up to the light and are healing from it. And do what each of you need to heal from. Are there any questions?
Elyon, I've been reading the Morontia Mota section, and two things intrigued my attention. One was the idea that few mortals ever dare to draw anything like the sum of personality credits, in other words, we are truly rich, but we refuse to believe it. The other thing is that blind and unforseen accidents do not happen in the cosmos. Neither do celestial beings assist the lower being who refuses to act upon his light of truth. I took that personally; why do certain people get teachers? And of thinking myself why do I have a resistance or an unwillingness or an inability to communicate? And when I read that I thought well that's it, I don't act upon my light of truth. Apparently I'm not doing what I need to be doing. Which tied back to the idea that I'm not cashing in on my personality credits. I'm rich, but I'm not doing it. I was wondering if you had any insights as to if this was realistic in my situation, and if so, could you expound on that further, so I could understand my situation better. Thank you.
Elyon: Yes, number one, allowing the time that it would take for you to quiet your mind. There are teachers available for all who wish them. Your desire is there, however there is also some doubt attached to the validity of the Teaching Mission. So for you this becomes a double edged sword, as you are, somewhat, in inner conflict with what you really wish for yourself. You can see the advantages of having a teacher. You are also consumed with doubt as to how you would handle the situation if a teacher were to come to you. You have some doubt as to responsibility, whether this would somehow be taken from you: That you may no longer be in charge of your free will. Ponder on what I have said, and go into your depth, and see where you really are. Does this help?
Question: Yes, That gives me much to think about. Thank you.
Question #2: Elyon, you spoke of healing. (Edited due to personal nature.) How, in any way possible, can I be used in any healing that's necessary to take place in this manner? If you could talk on that; I would appreciate it.
Elyon: Yes, this can be done in a private meeting. To set this up with either of the TRs. And I will tell you all this: That part of this mission is for you all to heal each other with the aid of the Life Carriers. And for those who desire and wish this, this will be so. Know that you can be a channel for this healing, and know that inner guidance will come. For both of you to learn and discern when the guidance is out of fear and when it is from us or your Thought Adjuster. To fear will only add to the burden. Pray and turn over to the Father, to open up and allow the guidance to come in. Allow the love from Michael and the Father to start the healing process. A private session would be beneficial to go into this further. That is all I can comment on for now.
Thank you, Elyon. I would look forward to a private session with you at a later time.
Elyon, It's kind of a hard question to follow. I have been actively seeking contact with who I am discerning to be my personal teacher. This morning what I felt pretty good confirmation from that teacher as well as an assurance of your presence. Is there a way that I could get confirmation on who this teacher is? I would be anxious to move on to the next step, but don't want to push things faster than they ought to go.
Elyon: You, also, can adjust your day to have more quiet time. In the beginning of the contact with your teacher, once you learn of his presence, and begin to discern when it is your teacher and when it is you, you can then talk freely throughout the day. You have indeed had real contact. It does take practice in the beginning, so have patience and do not be hard on yourself, for your teacher also has a lot of patience. Set your time aside each day, and be strict about it until you know you have solid contact. The name will come. Does this help?
Yes, thank you. I will pursue that time of stillness; as I've been practicing lately, I give myself a break on the weekends, however I think I will be more diligent on each day as you have admonished us all along. I can feel in myself the urge to lengthen this time period so as to allow for not only my worship time but for communication.
