TR: Jonathan, Mark Rogers
Evanson (Jonathan TR): Greetings, I am Evanson. I am desirous to remind you of a perspective regarding growth that I know you hold, but it is my wish to draw it to your foremind once again that you may benefit from integrating it with your daily activities.
In your dimension, and you will find on my level as well, much takes place that is what may be called external oriented. Much goes on outside of self in order to keep your life organized and progressing according to your goals and in harmony with others. This necessary orientation has the tendency to steer your inner growth along that same objective line rather than the subjective orientation. It is easy to perceive your growth as growing toward, reaching, and attaining. Reach and attain imply something beyond, something to arrive at. There is no error in this perspective, for you are a child of God seeking the divine presence and you live in a world where contact with others is common and necessary. But you know that growth towards is really growth as. You grow in love, in light. You grow as a peaceful spirit being. The attainment of mind and the enlargement of spirit are more than a possession; they are states of being.
Early in your spiritual development growth evolves as, in a sense, an acquiring of wardrobe, the putting on of spirit clothing so to speak. But eventually you become your own attire; you are the covering; you are the presence of that which you sought to wear and now represent. Understanding the nature of growth in this manner brings a balance, for while the hunger for truth continues your seeking of higher truth, reaching for the divine, you are also of necessity undergoing personal transformation and becoming that very thing, truth itself. Everything you then do is a manifestation of spirit applied.
You may wish to acquire more in spirit status and continue your journey to do so, but you are also growing in stature and becoming a reality point revelation of spirit. In your activities you discern times when that which you are doing has some frictional hindrance towards your spiritual goals, and you must wisely choose that which is helpful in your path, but you also can rest in peaceful assurance that whatever you undertake to accomplish may be spirit manifestation itself infused into any seemingly mundane activity.
Your reward of attainment is not only the reward of acquirement but the reward of being. That is never lost; it is not a possession that can be taken away. It is presence. Thank you for listening to me today.
Evelyn: I find that helpful because we tend to think, "I'm not being spiritual right now." like it turns off. It's one more thing we can feel guilty about. Whatever it is we have acquired is there; it doesn't turn on and off. That's a comforting thought.
Evanson: I draw you to the episode of the final hours of Michael's bestowal on your world, and his manner of being so impressed another meeting his death as well. That is from the solid grounding of Jesus in his spirit being. Even an event as ugly as that was did not shake him from his sense of presence with God. Your own hardships can be faced in the same manner.
Elyon (Mark): I would greet you as well and make my presence known. This is Elyon. For a change of pace and as a demonstration to you that there are vast resources at your disposal, I would ask of this group whom so would you desire to commune with at this time? If you could only see the spiritual arena filled with those eager personalities to assist you in your processes, those many who have committed to stand by you as you make such great strides in you spiritual awareness. They would offer themselves to you on call at this time.
Evelyn: Elyon, would you choose someone who hasn't had a chance to address a group before and has been looking forward to that opportunity? We are thrilled with anyone, but I enjoy hearing from new characters.
Elyon: Then so be it. I will call one who has not addressed the crowd in a long time to step forward.
Stephen: I thank you for this request, I am Stephen. It is my honor and my privilege to simply be in observance of what is such a success story in this, our latest undertaking. Truly we marvel at the potentials that we see daily being actualized in your lives.
This is a grand experiment that we undertake together, and I have signed on to such an experiment with eager anticipation of the great unfoldment I will observe in my participation. But what is most impressive is not the drive and the enthusiasm I witness on my side of the curtain but rather yours. It is you who choose to be engaged with us and involved in this experiment of such great magnitude knowing so little as you do about the ramifications of your choices and the ultimate success of your endeavors.
To witness such extensions of faith brings the universe to witness, for when you make these choices we know of a certainty that your conviction springs from the faith that you have grown in your lives that we witness. It is a universe miracle unfolding, and it is standing room only in our arena as we watch this miracle happen. Even that I address you in this hour is a miracle of your faith and the Father's grace come together.
Therefore I am humbled to receive this opportunity, and I am inspired by the grandeur of what promises to come as we live the very opportunities that we are graced with. As the petals of our flowers unfold to be exposed to the light we cannot help but be impressed with the beauty that becomes real as we observe. You are familiar with the beauty of the unfolding of a flower from morning until afternoon into evening, the transformation you witness in this but single cycle, and I assure you that the unfoldment of each of you as individuals represents a field of the most glorious magnitude. This field represents the unfoldment of the divine plan.
We are eager to watch this transformation in this short cycle that we observe. I have signed on to be witness assistant as have you in this process. Together we will behold this glorious transformation, and it is with humble gratitude that I acknowledge our partnership in this process and seek only to be the more fully and powerfully engaged, as I understand is the desire of your hearts as well. We are of one heart in this desire, and together we are of one destiny in this process. I cherish this journey as a sacred one as do you, and look forward with great anticipation to the many turns and horizons involved in us taking these steps together. Thank you for your desire to hear from one who has been in observance and craves the opportunity of just such as this. Thank you.
Veronica (Jonathan): Behold who you are. The divine luminosity flashes all about and within you, light radiant, wisdom enhancing, increasing vision, opening your eyes to goals and horizons before unseen. You are bathed in love; the divine affection undulates all about you washing you, refreshing you, touching others in a baptism of fellowship. You pulsate with the life rhythm of the universe energy. All this you are. Realize in stillness the profound reality of your existence, your connectivity with divine being. I am Veronica.
Machiventa (Mark): I greet you, this is Machiventa. I consider you all my good and faithful students. Although you might consider yourselves students of others, you are all who engage in spirit pursuits our students. We are united in our goal to provide you with spiritual guidance as you are united in your goal to achieve spiritual awareness. As part of this process no longer will you find it necessary to simply wait and see who among us will be chosen to step forward and provide this guidance, but rather as a demonstration of our spiritual partnership in this mission we would like to extend our individual invitations to you to access those individual personalities among us whom you would like to engage in spiritual communion with. We would like to expand your comprehension of our arena of communication to be more inclusive of two way dialogue and would request the questions you harbor in your hearts to be brought into this arena more openly rather than to wait for those on our side to observe your dialogue between yourselves and to subsequently make comment.
We would throw open the doors of communication even wider and request that you bring to us your topics for discussion, your concerns of spiritual import as well as your requests for individual personalities to address these requests. On most occasions the desires of your hearts for particular individuals will be readily available and, if not, there are plenty to pinch hit and field your questions, comments, and concerns.
This next step is designed to bring us even closer, not to reinforce the attitude that you are listening as if to a radio and a signal from afar, but rather to promote the realization that this is more like the telephone connection wherein conversation is much enhanced when it flows in both directions.
We value your observations and opinions regarding your mission and the challenges that lie before you each one. We are certainly here to provide our perspective but desire a closer relationship in so doing. I am aware that your patterns that we have been engaged in for this period of time are ingrained and will take some effort at modification, but I have seen great modification thus far as a result of your efforts. Therefore we will keep adding new challenges such as this new desire for more two-way conversations to spur you on in the realization that we are indeed engaged in this process together.
I respect that you have in your minds the relationship of students and teachers, and you are from your perspective correct in this classification that you make. However we desire a deeper, closer relationship more akin to junior fellows and senior fellows. We acknowledge the distance between us but would extend ourselves as you extend yourselves to meet somewhere in the middle and there be considered comrades in this undertaking that we have both volunteered to serve in. So, as the weeks unfold consider your perspective on our relationship and know that it is the request of us whom you consider teachers as well as the request of the one whom you consider your father to be closer to you to diminish this perception of gap, in fact to bridge this gap which is possible as a result of the outreach of your faith and the unlimited boundaries of your spirit.
Meet us half way and there we may commune as fellows, as friends. This surely will come to pass. It is only the next horizon before you. I harbor no doubts that just as you have come to many horizons and successfully crossed over, likewise this will prove to be no greater obstacle. Those are my words of encouragement today. I rest assured that our relationships will be strengthened as a result of your consideration. Thank you.
Jada: We were talking about poisons in the food we eat. Through our faith we can overcome the poisons or at least mitigate their effects. Could someone speak to that?
Machiventa: There is no doubt that faith is your single greatest tool in overcoming what are your life's greatest obstacles and challenges. It is through your faith that you may be properly oriented to navigate the many challenges and obstacles that arise as you are on your individual journeys. By availing yourself of your most powerful tool your awareness becomes heightened as does your willingness to proceed in the most advantageous method to your progression. This implies the willingness to do that which you know to be helpful, healthful, and beneficial as well as your willingness to avoid things known to be unhealthful, unhelpful, and unwise.
Faith can provide you with the strength that you need when the choice before you is uncertain to choose the right path, the best path for you to take. Faith can also bring you options which are more helpful, healthful options. When you orient yourself to seek the good, the beautiful, the true, the right then these manifestations arise before you to be chosen. When you petition your Parents to bring you that which is good, truthful, and beautiful then these elements (are the answers to prayer)....
When you then extend your faith these characteristics, these opportunities before you, you are accepting these answers to your prayers, and thereby your circle is made pure and good and right. Your faith can provide you with the answers as to whether a particular course of action is appropriate by simply asking. If there is uncertainty you may petition a response from on high and then expect that you will receive one. In those cases where there is some certainty in your being as to the appropriateness of your action, it is left up to you to make that choice. Therein is where your faith provides you with that bump, that nudge, towards the right, the good, and the proper.
Either way, your faith remains a large factor in your decision making process whether or not you are in awareness of the role that it plays. Does this satisfy your request?
Jada: Yes. An aspect of faith I experience is that sometimes it seems rock solid and the next moment it's like it's not even there. I wonder what happened.
Machiventa: You are indeed fortunate when an episode arises and your faith is rock solid. However when the next episode arises and you are uncertain as to your choice, therein call on your faith and petition that part of yourself which knows the answer to your question. Seek the answer from your spirit guide who unerringly will point you in the right direction. I would suggest that by contrast the episode in which you possess spiritual certainty is an episode wherein you have had spiritual experience and know the landscape of your spiritual decision. The episode in which you are uncertain is most likely an episode of unfamiliar territory and there is a guide within you who will safely and effectively show you the way.
Yantese (Jonathan): This is Yantese. I emerge at the request of Evelyn. I am part of the group of which you seek notification, the youth corps. This is my first attempt to establish resonance between the frequency of mind that I function within and this mind frequency of one you call a transmitter/receiver. I am discovering how meaning is transferred into message through this harmonic juncture. My goal is to promote gentleness and peacefulness in the generation growing up on your world. I keep this short as this is new and somewhat unsettling in security and assuredness. Thank you.
Evelyn: Thank you. Wow! Good luck with your work. We will think of you and how we can work hand in hand on peacefulness and gentleness in the next generation.
Yantese: I welcome your efforts.
Mary: Thank you, Yantese. When Elyon asked who we wanted to speak with I pictured addressing the many personalities with my gratitude and assurance that you are there upholding our work. Even though we don't understand wholly this project, I operate with faith that you are there. Thank you for the guidance we receive who work with kids. Thank you for stretching your boundaries and coming forward to contact us.
Yantese: Thank you.
Ginny: Do you have any comments or suggestions as we prepare for this Common Ground festival?
Yantese: I encourage you to openly and warmly welcome those who are interested in your event. While you are planning and developing the program hold in your sight the benefit of the souls who will partake in your activities. While you may debate the technical organization, your success is in the fostering of the fire of spirit drive in another. Your success will not come from precision of words you speak but the energy of love and the warmth received both in the lightness of your expression and in your affection. You do this well among yourselves. You are able to do this with strangers. As you reach out and draw others in, know that upon closure they go forth, each being within themselves another point of light for our common Parent to manifest and touch those you have no ability to reach within your own sphere of activities. Your program will proceed well fully due to the abilities of your volunteering participants. Remember you are planting seeds, and the presence of God will bring life, germination, to those seeds. God is with you.
Ginny: Thank you for your interest in our planet, such as it is.
Yantese: I guess I should say good by.]]
