Topic: We Have High Hopes
Group: Post Falls TeaM
TR: Jill, Daniel Megow
Daniel sings: "Once there was a little old ant, tried to move a rubber tree plant, but everyone knows an ant can’s, move a rubber tree plant. But he’s had high hopes, he had high hopes, he had high-apple-pie-in-the- sky hopes. So, when you’re feeling down and blue, don’t know what to do, just remember that ant. Whoops there goes another rubber tree plant."
Levona (TR/Jill): We thank Daniel for that gracious song as the introduction to our lesson this evening. Good evening. This is Levona. I am pleased to be here tonight. You know how, for those of you have been in an airplane or climbed up high on a rock, you look down and everything looks so miniature? Well, this song symbolizes miniatureness and greatness.
You, as the beginning human beings on your planet—beings that have a mind that can discern right from wrong—in the Grand Scheme of things you are but the small, tiny, miniscule ant. However, being able to discern and think about yourself, and being able to be infused with Spirit, you can move rubber plants. Oh, yes you can! Everyone knows an ant can’t move a rubber tree plant—pause—don’t they? Well, if that little ant is symbolic of you, I remind you that as beings of spirit, you can move mountains, as the saying goes.
We are aware of the multitude of struggles that you go through, and your assignment this week is to think back on different troubled times and look at your reactions and choices, and the final outcomes. For each and every one of you who reads this transcript, we believe that you will be able to see your own spiritual evolution. When looking back at perhaps your first really tough challenge in your mind, and then looking at your current challenge, you will see that you have a much different approach to the problem solving than you had with your first problems. What is different? How have your perceptions changed—about yourself, about others, about challenges, in general? Take time to explore your life in this way during the next week. If you do, you will smile and feel a greater sense of peace and security because you will see how spiritual faith has transformed your life. Invite your Father and Mother and spiritual brothers and sisters to be with you as you look through your newly-forming morontia eyes and morontia heart, and morontia mind, at your life up until today. Enjoy your journey. Take time to discover the gift that was hidden in the challenge, and then take time to praise yourself heartily for All that you have accomplished in such a short lifespan. We’re here to help you with every growth effort. We’re here to cheer you on. We are here to slip little insights into your mind. And your Thought Adjuster/Thought Controller is with you every moment—guiding, adjusting, and controlling the direction of your thoughts evermore directly toward your Father and His Will. Find time to be with your Father on a regular basis. Enjoy your journey this week.
Michael (T/R Daniel): Be not discouraged, my little ones. Be of good cheer. Let loose your hopes and your fears, your dreams and your struggles, for Father and I will always be there to set you on the right path. Let your hopes overcome your fears. Let your dreams energize you through your struggles. Each difficulty upon this path you have chosen is another and greater opportunity for growth and progress. Know that my Father and I are with you at all times; there to help you; there to guide you in the most loving path. Let love characterize your actions. Go forward in action towards those material things which seem to be the Father’s Will. Let nothing discourage you, and when disappointments and seeming injustices chance to appear on your path, allow Our Father and myself to be the ones who react. Act in love, and leave the reactions to us.
Continue stepping forward in the strength of faith which you have earned. Take no thought of the consequences when you are wholeheartedly exercising your faith in our watchcare. Let the consequences be ours, and you will indeed be energized and satisfied with the results. Patience is a very difficult lesson on this world of ours. You will get it, and it will serve you in the years to come. Already do you have a great deal more of it than you ever would have assumed possible. You have seen the value of acting in faith. You have experienced the pleasure of faith’s rewards. Rely on it yet once again, and indeed your reward will be great. Trust that we are in control, for I assure you that it is so. Find what is right in your fellows. Find what is loving and good. Seek only that. Much there is on this world that needs correction. Concentrate on the love, and the correction will be the result. You have given freely, and truly is your reward whom you are becoming. You will likely not have a peaceful and entirely restful experience while you stay on this world to do Our Father’s Will.
You have chosen a path which will keep you quite busy. Yet, as your proceed, the inner peace which is the grace to all of those who consciously seek the Will of Our Father, will be with you and sustain you. The inner peace of knowing your place in the universe as a child of God is the true peace for which you search. Do not judge your experiences for their benefit to you. I assure you, dear ones, they Are of great and lasting benefit. That which you truly seek, you will most certainly find. My love for you is supreme. I am very proud of you, my children, for your desires, for your willingness, and for your hopes. Allow your hopes and dreams to continue to pull you forward, and you will succeed, entertaining them.
I leave you with my love and my encouragement to proceed as you are doing. Your "principal" has spoken.
