TR: Mark Rogers
Machiventa: I greet you all. This is Machiventa, and I am so pleased to have each of you join our Melchizedek Schools. We take the opportunity to work wherever you will assemble and allow us to be involved in your midst. We rejoice to work with such opportunities as you have structured even now over these existing phone lines and with the existing technology, to bring about the opportunity to expand the word and reach more individuals.
The time has come on your world where the options of broadcasting are now widespread enough to be largely effective to many on your world. This form of communication provides the leverage we need to augment some of the next phase of Michael's plan. There will be an increased interest in the discovery of the lessons from the teachers and there is great opportunity before us to share the many lessons that have been circulated and have been digested by you over time.
You are our latest experiment in bringing about changes to your world, to our world, and we welcome the opportunity to work with whatever direction you, as workers, are inclined towards. Michael's plan encompasses all levels of workers. There are all aspects of expertise required in spiritual affairs and those of you who have been engaged in the study of the lessons of the Teaching Mission have received much material to digest over the years. It is now time to take the lessons of the classroom and move them to lab. The lab, in this case, is your environment -- your world.
It is one thing to contemplate the greater spiritual truths; it is another thing to take them out and spread them throughout the world. Now is the time where we become active with our engagement with these spiritual truths. No longer will we be content to sit back with each other and discuss these truths, but we will be driven by a new sense of urgency to be about the phase of sharing the truths. This is a joyous new phase that we enter in, wherein we rely on your faith offerings to extend toward us and provide us with the means we need to implement the changes we seek. It means a great deal of the legwork is going to be done by you, as individuals. You will be our mouths, you will be our arms, you will be our legs about this movement, and we will work together to bring about the changes necessary on your world.
Those who extend to us in faith will be worked with. We accept all sincere efforts directed toward us. We will use all resources in our power to actualize this plan and this includes human participation on a spiritually deep level. So the call goes out to the humans of Urantia. Who among you will step forward to accept this challenge to be bold about your faith, to be bold with your faith, to assert your faith? To allow you to be effective ambassadors for Michael and his cosmic reality, each must look for strength to their spirit sense, their spirit eyes, if you will. To see the truths through the eyes of spirit provides you with additional perspectives. When viewed through this spiritual perspective one can more easily sort out the avenues open and more effectively channel energy to maximize the potential of their contribution to this mission.
You who have the benefit of the text of the Urantia papers know of my service to your world many years ago, and I am grateful to have a forum such as this to extend my personal reach to each of you, to know me in the spirit form, to know me as a personality with your spirit eyes. By being on this line you have extended your faith to the point of the acceptance of this very reality, and I merely offer that you extend this sense to include yourselves as one familiar with presences such as myself. Just to accept another's presence into your being is a reach of faith and you are coming to learn that there are many personalities that you will never see with your material eyes, but you will see them with your spiritual perspective. You will feel their presence in your lives.
This is the level on which we need to direct our attention, formulating your seat of observation to your environment to be a spiritual seat. Observe your world through your spiritual perception as much as possible, and you will see that the reality before you begins to change, and that the surroundings you have come to be familiar with may appear different with a new focus. This is our opportunity. This is our chance for spiritual movement. It is healthy to recognize these occurrences and to establish that this is a routine part of human nature, of your human existence.
I applaud you all, each one, for your curiosity and the faith that you extend to experiment with such a new form of communication on your world, stringing together your land lines with your spirit lines. We marvel at your desires to string together the realities that you have at hand to accomplish even a spiritual task. Therefore do we pledge our support to those who come with sincere intentions to be a part of a new and broader outreach program wherein celestial personalities may visit with a larger number of individuals and the spiritual concepts may be spread abroad. I am aware that there is some deal of concern about plans for a new age on your world and all the implications that go along with that and I would just pass along that the changes in the spirit pressure to your world, although great in magnitude, do not alter our lesson plan for you as mortals of the realm. Our mandate from Michael is one of slow and steady spiritual upliftment from the grassroots volunteers who desire to be involved. That mandate does not change, regardless of the times in which we live. It only becomes charged by certain events that come along, and this is the case at this time.
There is a charge about this new phase and excitement to be shared. This excitement can be used as a propellant for individuals to become spiritually involved, and to that extent, we will ride that wave. But I assure you your imaginations are capable of providing for you a much more grandiose outlook on the direct effect this might have on you than will be the reality of the case. Truly it is a great step for our world. It is the passing of an age and we do rejoice to be about this next phase and welcome each who would come as volunteers to this cause.
When I was on your world many years ago, I was fortunate to work with many humans, such as yourselves, and I became very fond of the human nature and the human perspective and the human willingness to be involved in pursuits which were outside of their basic human nature. So it is with you.
I am so pleased to come in contact with sincere individuals who desire to affect spiritual change on their world and I would welcome working with all who would work with me. That is the pledge I submit to all honest seekers, and I look forward to the reality of this very pledge. Would there be desire for any questions?
Q: Machiventa, I have a question regarding a recent transcript concerning changes coming which suggested the best way to reach people who might somewhat disturbed by changes that might occur is to reach them through the heart rather than the mind. Even though conceptually I understand that, I would appreciate if you could discuss that and some examples of how to reach someone from the heart. I guess it's not intellectual, but how do you do that exactly?
Machiventa: On your world there is cause for some discrimination between your understanding of certain concepts, one being an exchange of the heart and another being an exchange of the spirit, of the soul. Oftentimes on your world those two are so closely linked as to be indistinguishable, the one from the other. In my discussion earlier about the eyes with which you will look to another, with which you will look out onto your world, if one can focus from your spiritual center to another's spiritual center the resulting exchange is powerful and dynamic and is oftentimes confused as an affair of the heart when more appropriately the more profound exchanges are indeed an affair of the spirit. When you function in this spirit realm you do encounter profound exchanges and these have the capacity to effect great change in others when they are shared through this medium of spirit.
So as I was discussing, when one functions from this realm of spirit, one oftentimes has shifts in their understanding and perception due to their search for understanding. The surest way to represent this to any individual is simply with your own personal expression of complete honesty. When you are completely honest and open to another individual, then they respond with great openness in return. At this time, it is possible to affect the seeking of another individual when the doors are open to gaining this understanding.
Always respond with the love that we associate with the heart space. This love is an attitude. This love is a posture. When you respond with this attitude of love, and on the plane of spirit, then people very much notice. They aren't necessarily aware of the dynamics of what you are doing, but they certainly sense your posture and attitude and are more or less receptive to you as you are more or less effective in portraying this posture.
Q: Thank you so much.
Q: Machiventa, can you give us more details of your plan for stage two?
Machiventa: My details of my upcoming mandate includes being persistent with certain foundational points with the students available to me on Urantia. I am in charge of instilling the rudimentary elements of spiritual training, the importance of STILLNESS, the necessity of actively choosing to function on the spiritual plane. I am not in any way in charge of the larger mandate involved in Michael's latest implementation of spirit influence onto this world. My mandate is and always has been the rather slow and steady training of the foot soldiers involved in this process. I attempt to prepare them to be ready, to be deployed when and where they are required, and I rely on the judgment of my superiors to place the individuals in their appropriate spheres of influence after they have gained some basic "boot camp" level of spiritual understanding. My personal directive remains constant, to train the foot soldiers, the volunteers who come forward to donate their time, to exercise their faith, to extend their influence. They come to our schools, as you are now, to learn such spiritual realities. In some regards I am in charge of the beginners of spiritual influence, for once they pass through my schools they then become qualified to undertake many outside challenges and go on to work in other schools throughout. Does this provide you with information about my directives?
Q: It provides me more questions. What other schools are you referring to?
Machiventa: Our Melchizedek schools are wherever humans are gathered with the interest to be about fostering spiritual ideas and the learning of spiritual concepts. We will use any format, any forum, any group, any set of individuals, any single individual, who will allocate to us their time and their effort to become trained in the spiritual realities of the universe. It is a partnership of the spiritual and material planes. It is not at all new to your world, as there have been spiritual and human partnerships you are aware of in the past, but at this time we do not employ our own structures and arenas wherein this training takes place. We rather take this training to the streets, to the study groups, to the meetings, to the individuals who are willing to work with us and receive such spiritual training.
Q: Thank you.
Machiventa: This training is not received in an unconscious state, but when received, it does have subconscious elements involved to it, but this is more of a spiritual matter than a conscious matter. The consciousness of the individual is required to complete the training circuit, but some of the more profound lessons may indeed have an impact on the deeper consciousness and therefore have some effect on the lower levels of consciousness, but this is not a main component of this circuit, rather is it an effect to the cause.
Machiventa: I'm speaking to that right now. You all are a group, and you are a new movement, and we have shifted the focus to expand the group definition. There will be more work done with groupings of individuals and this will be a natural result of peoples increased desire to be of service. This desire to be of service will lead individuals together and will provide the necessary impetus to push the movement of service forward.
Q: Thank you.
Machiventa: Thank you for such a question because there is an element involved in these aspects of spiritual components that must be included wherein the individuals involved can ask for greater leeway with their teachers in receiving instructions on potentials that might be actuated. However, the faith choice of the individuals and the groups are the highest priority in this entire plan. Nothing is allowed to occur to circumvent the free will expression of the individuals involved, and therefore it is paramount that the offer be presented by the individuals and the group, that consent be provided so that this enhanced partnership may develop. We rely on you, as individuals, to formulate the ideas to become involved with and then we as teachers can bring to that the ideals of what the plan encompasses. In this way we work together hand in hand, but we are very resistant to lay out an entire plan, beginning to end, simply for you to follow. This is not consistent with our mandate that we regard your individual personal choice as.
Machiventa: Indeed. We will not cross that line. We will not go to that level of suggesting that which is outside that you should offer. We wait for your offer and then we assure you we will assist you in any way possible to bring about these changes. We are becoming more active in our approach as we are inspired by the wave of spiritual pressure about to impact this world and we wish to maximize its potential. Thank you, each one listening, for being a part of this cycle, a part of this circuit we form together.
Think back from time to time about circuits that are formed in your lives such as this one. It can be a source of great strength when you find yourself uncertain. We are all involved in this circuit to support each other, support the web. Thank you all for being a part of it.
Q: Machiventa, could you please end this session with a prayer to the Father?
Machiventa: Indeed. Father we ask your presence into our lives, into our circuit that we form at this time together. We ask for you to flow through us, flow through our circuit, flow out to each one with your love, your grace, and your peace. We ask, each one, to be a proper tool in your service. We ask to be ready to function. We ask to be on standby and at your call. We would be in your service for your mission and we would be of one heart, of one spirit, about working with you in these times. We are grateful to have each other; we are grateful to be here now; and we would share this love we feel from you out to all our brothers and sisters. Help us each day to spread this about and to be your messengers. Thank you Father. Amen.
