TR: George B.
Prayer: Norman: Heavenly Father thank you for our gathering here this evening. Thank you for being in our midst. Help us to hear the lesson you have for us tonight. May we keep doing Your Will first and foremost. Thank you for the people that we meet through the day and in the coming weeks. May they find their path and do Your Will as required by You. We pray that we accomplish this endeavor to the glory of You Father. In Michael ’ s name, we ask these things.
JarEl: George, TR. Good evening, it is I, your teacher, JarEl. It is good to be among you once again. The Universe waits upon your decisions. The opportunities exist exactly outside of your realm of decision making. The responsibilities continue to be your responsibilities and they will not go away until you decide to do something about them. We wait for the decisions and actions that you will take in the future. We wait for you to become an outstanding citizen; we wait for you to become a perfect human being. We wait for you to become a friend of everyone and a friend to yourself. We wait for you to forgive those who have wronged you and we patiently wait for you to acknowledge us.
All the opportunities and possibilities are there for you to take full advantage of. Your growth will be quickened if you would begin to make logical and thoughtful decisions. You life is laid out before you in a series of events. These events happen based on the decisions that you make in your life. Is it not desirable to continue to have experiences that challenge you and cause you to grow as a human being? Is it not desirable to see what you can become, what possibilities that exists beyond your growth? Is it not desirable to taste a drop of what awaits you? Is it not desirable to begin to understand Morontia Mota? When you begin to comprehend what type of decisions and thought processes you must have, you will begin to understand Morontia Mota. Deciding and making decisions in life allows you, give you that opportunity, to find these places in your life and mind to begin to understand what is possible.
Doing nothing, absolutely nothing will bring the same results into your life, nothing! Doing something, making decisions, challenging yourself, solving problems, helping others brings opportunities and revelation that you would not otherwise receive. So take the time to evaluate your life and understand where and why you need to make decisions. Understand where in your life a decision needs to be made, followed by action, a conclusion of your decision.
You do not want to wait to the very last minute when you have run out of time to tie up loose ends. However loose ends always exist in people’s lives. There will be loose ends all the way through the Morontia Realms. They will be reminders of your life, they will be reminders of the things you did or did not do. They will be reminders that you need to fix whatever needs to be fixed. You need to work on whatever needs to be worked on. You need to solve whatever needs to be solved.
Most of these problems have very simple solutions. Most of these problems can be summed up in two words, decisions and actions. It is your mind and your circumstances that create a complicated orchestra of chaos which does not allow you to see the simplicity of the answer to it all. Even when it is presented to you in a simple and concise way you remain stubborn. You insist that it is complicated, that it is beyond solution, that it is too much to handle and so you simply give up.
That is no way to solve problems in your life and that is no way to deal with the challenges that will exist from here on throughout all eternity. You must look at it in a simple way, for it is all simple. It is all perfectly simple in God’s creation. Problems exist so answers may arise.
Those answers will make who you are. Those answers will construct the soul that you are co-creating. Those answers will bring values, morals and ethics into your life. Those answers will create the future you. Not answering these questions limits your growth and detains whatever growth or future you may have. Facing it full on, taking responsibility and taking charge is how you will overcome all the challenges in your life and that is the means of your growth in this world and in the next.
You have been thrown into this world to find who you are. One of the challenges that you are required to solve is self-responsibility, being responsible for whatever you create. If you learn that my friends you will have come a long way and you will be closer to perfection. Are there any questions tonight?
Stella: How do you get your answers to questions to problems?
JarEl: TR, George. By asking.
Stella: But I don ’ t get a response.
JarEl: TR, George. Your responses don ’ t always come in forms of thought processes or words or in immediate manifestations. Responses sometimes come disguised in events, in circumstances, in objects or in people. You must be able to discern the response that the Universe has given to your question, Stella.
Stella: Nope, I don ’ t get any answers.
Larry: What questions do you have Stella, that you want answered?
Stella: I don ’ t really want to say.
JarEl: TR, George. My dear Stella, you know very well that you do get answers; you know very well that the questions that you ask have been answered. It is your own stubborn way of thinking that impedes you from receiving the answers immediately that you are seeking. Allow yourself to be open to whatever answer that may come and accept that answer for what it is. Do not expect a certain answer, for when you do that you never see the true answer for what it is. Are there any other questions?
Larry: Last week we were reading about the Supreme and we are a little bit confused about the Supreme. Is the Supreme going to be another God that is being created right now? Will God the Supreme be an individual personality separate from God, the First Source and Center? What will the relationship of the Supreme be to the Father?
JarEl: TR, George. The Father will always remain the source of everything that exists throughout the Universe of Universes. The Father is the First Source and Center of everything that exists. The First Source of thought and mind which reached out and created Deity and the Creation. The First Source augments Himself in the Supreme, therefore the Supreme is an augmentation, an expansion and a glorification of what is, and what always will be God the First Source and Center.
JarEl: TR, George. The Supreme Being is a collaboration of the entire Evolutionary Universe of time and space being brought together. The Father has expanded Himself and has extended Himself through every single one of his creations. The moment his creation comes into perfect Light and Life, the Supreme Being is created in completion. Put in simple words, the Supreme is you and God and every one of His creations put all together.
Donna: So the Supreme is an extension of the First Source and Center?
JarEl: TR, George. Exactly.
Donna: But not two individual separate Gods?
JarEl: TR, George. No.
Donna: OK, thanks.
JarEl: TR, George. The personality of the Supreme derives from all of the accumulation of all the separate individuals within it, including that of the First Source and Center. The personality of the Supreme, therefore, will be a perfect personality. Imagine that the Supreme is the collaborative creation of you along with everyone else and the First Source and Center. This creation belongs to all of you; this creation belongs to every single individual in the Grand Universe. You, every single one of you are part of the Supreme. Do not try to define the Supreme before understanding who you are. When you begin to understand who you are and who the First Source and Center is the Supreme will reveal Himself to you fully.
Stella: Well then the Supreme will never be finished, because there is an eternity of beings to be born, so this could go on indefinitely.
Larry: Does it not say in The Urantia Book that the Supreme Bring is completed once the Seven Superuniverses are settled in Light and Life? When everything is brought to perfection and when that happens that will be the actual creation of the Supreme or the finalization; when He individualizes or comes into being, the Supreme God.
JarEl: TR, George. Exactly and that will be a long time from today. You will have many days, many centuries to ponder the idea of the Supreme. Believe me there is still much to learn which has not been revealed to you and me. The Supreme is similar to the idea of Nirvana; it is a state of being where everything is perfect. It is when all creation has come into perfect harmony and has balanced itself perfectly. The Supreme is being created as we speak but it will take a long time to complete and from this moment on you will learn more about it. Keep in mind that you are just as much a part of it as anyone else. It is very hard to study when you are the one who needs to be studied.
JarEl: TR, George. Exactly and when you look at it that way you become more enthusiastic in helping this grand event happen. Everyone in this Universe looks forward to the day when the Supreme is complete. We all expect it, we all want it, and we know that it will happen, but we are patient and we wait.
Stella: Will this be the Sixth Revelation?
Larry: I was under the impression that it was an extension of the Fifth Revelation, but I don ’ t know, what is the situation?
Donna: The arrival of Monjoronson will be the Sixth Epochal Revelation, is that what you said JarEl?
JarEl: TR, George. Yes.
Larry: Well I wish he would hurry up, because we sure could use the help.
Stella: Did somebody say it is within our lifetime? Or is beyond us, this generation?
JarEl: If you live long enough, yes it will be within your lifetime.
Stella: I don ’ t think that I am going to live long enough.
Norman: This week-end we were in Sedona, the UB readers there are making an organic garden out of the desert and they believe that they are building the third garden. Is this the case or is it their imagination?
JarEl: TR, George. In reality Norman the whole world can be created as a garden if you take it upon yourself to beautify the earth. However, it is very doubtful that the place that they are in now is the chosen place for the arrival of Monjoronson. That location has not been disclosed.
Norman: Thank you.
JarEl: TR, George. You are welcome. Larry, you said that you need Monjoronson, right?
JarEl: TR, George. Why is it that you feel you need him?
Stella: Mankind seems unable to administer or rule himself. We need help.
JarEl: TR, George. My dear brothers and sisters let me reveal a certain thought about the Deities and Celestials that exist in this Universe. They have the exact same access to the Father that you have. They are an extension of the Father just as you are an extension of the Father as well. You do not need someone to come and save you.
Stella: Yes we do.
JarEl: TR, George. You have the power within yourselves. That power was given to you by the First Source and Center. You can reach within yourselves and liberate your own minds and hearts. You can bring change into this world. Yes it is good to have a leader to look to, to follow but only if he is of sound mind.
Stella: That is the point we don ’ t have a leader with a sound mind.
JarEl: TR, George. Who better to trust than yourself?
Stella: That is true.
JarEl: TR, George. Who better to lead you than yourself? Who better to guide than yourself? But it is not you who is guiding you, it is not you, it is God. God indwells you, He is inside you. God is the pilot light that guides you through this swamp that you call earth. God is what brings order into your life. God is the anchor of light.
Larry: It is all true and we have been very blessed, especially us in this country, we have been very blessed, but around the world there is still genocide going on. There are still millions of people being killed by other people. It just has become overwhelming to see the tragedy of man ’ s inhumanity against his brothers and sisters. Just the other day we heard about the Congo, where the people who where killing each other in Rwanda, one side was forced out of Rwanda and into the Congo. Now there are reports of over four million people being killed in the Congo. It is just so overwhelming to see all of this inhumanity of mankind against mankind. Where we have been very blessed and all; we can do our part here, but it just does not seem that our prayers and actions are enough to reach out to other people in other lands. Then we start wars on other people ourselves and drop bombs on innocent men, women and children in the name of peace. To me that is very disheartening.
Stella: True and there is nothing we can do about it.
JarEl: TR, George. Ask yourself this question Larry, is your country any different in those who are killing themselves?
Stella: No, we are not.
Larry: No, we have just as much greed in this country. We have just as many people using other people and using our resources for their own greedy purposes. We have people in this country who are destroying mother earth because of their greed.
JarEl: TR, George. So the state of the world exists because it exists by people who want it that way, right? The state of the world continues to be this way.
Larry: Because of man ’ s selfish actions. You talked about making decisions; that calls for actions too, but lot of the actions are evil by evil people which cause a lot of the grief that goes on in this country and in the world. We need a lot of help! We need Monjoronson to appear right here right now. We need intervention.
Larry: Yes. Just the way that men treat women is a travesty in probably over eighty percent of the world. We even treat women poorly in the United States where I have read that one in four women are abused or raped.
Norman: In South Africa there is a rape every seventeen seconds.
JarEl: TR, George. These problems that exist in your world are too insurmountable for just one man to solve. Monjoronson will not solve any of your problems. He will not solve your problems; he will not come to bring order immediately to this world. That work remains to be done by all of you. That work is your responsibility. The societal problems that exists in your world exist because of society. You are a part of society, you have the power to change your society. Just because there are evil people on this world, that does not mean that you have to be that way too. You can lead by example.
Larry: You also cannot allow evil people to do you in, you have to stand up against them.
JarEl: TR, George. Exactly.
JarEl: TR, George. Not exactly Stella, just because you are forgiving your enemies does not mean that you condone the actions of your enemies. Do you remember when the Master held back the man who was beating the woman? He restrained him from beating her; he stopped him. Jesus held him at arm ’ s length so he could no longer hurt her. The Master did not approve of this man ’ s actions and stood in his way so that the beating would not continue. (130:5) In the same way try to solve the problems of the world and try to restrain whatever evil that your neighbor tries to do. Restrain them from hurting others, but love them as well. Forgive them as well. Forgiveness goes a long way, I cannot stress this too much. Forgiving others will go a long ways and ultimately you will learn how to forgive yourself as well. Remember this word Stella, restrain those who would hurt others, stop them. Do not kill them, do not hurt them, but restrain them so that they do no harm. Then the problems in your world will begin to be solved, as soon as you start dealing with others in a civil way, in a peaceful way.
Stella: Well it is hard when you have these multi-corporations controlling the world and you don ’ t seem to have any way of restraining them because the politicians who are supposed to do it don’t. Our vote, sometimes it is counted and sometimes it isn’t.
JarEl: TR, George. It is the key, what you just said Stella. It is the politicians who are supposed to do it. Were they supposed to do it, did you give them the power to do it, did you allow them to do it for you?
JarEl: TR, George. What did I speak of tonight? What did I lecture about?
Stella: How do I restrain a corporation?
JarEl: TR, George. By taking the power.
Stella: How do I restrain a corporation from depleting the soil, taking the oil and all that. Every time I get a vote, I will vote against them, but my pitiful little vote does not count for much.
JarEl: TR, George. I will not advise any of you how to handle your own governments, but I will advise you to take responsibility for yourself and anything that is related to your world. It is only when you take that responsibility upon yourself to deal with your life, to handle your issues, to handle society ’ s issues that your world will begin to change for the better. When you brush that responsibility off on someone else and expect them to deal with it and expect them to solve your problems, that is when you begin to run into problems of your own and even new ones that you did not know existed. So I advise you once again to learn how to take responsibility for whatever you do. Learn to take responsibility for what exists in your life and what you create. Then your life and the world around you will be much better for it.
Larry: Thank you very much JarEl for all of your wisdom tonight.
All: Thank you JarEl.
JarEl: TR, George. Thank you, good night.
