I am ABRAHAM. Greetings. I thank you for coming this evening. It is wonderful to spend this time with you. I find that in meeting less, we discuss more pressing issues. This time together becomes more valued. I am grateful to be allowed to watch your spiritual growth and your skills to tending to Kingdom tasks.
I am understanding in today’s world of high speed that there is so much focus on the business of living and individuals sometimes lose their sense of joy and reason for working so hard in the first place. In the Master’s time they had designated Wednesdays as a day of replenishing the mind and spirit. There was time for socializing because it was a source of joy.
As we move ahead in the Correcting Time we will see how important communications between people become. Said Jesus, “where two or more are gathered, there am I also.” The close individuals you feel comfortable talking with create an energy that is generating spirit and of course, spirit touches the heart and produces joy. Over these many years our lessons have been for the most part about sociology or learning to communicate with one another.
It is our goal to help generate the spirit in our social circles. I also believe that with the fast pace competitive lifestyle that is common in today; there is also the added difficulties egos bring. The ego or animal self, typically desires to be the king of the jungle and is not sociable or a generator of spirit. There is great struggle in today’s world to stay afloat and this can bring out the instincts of the animal-self, in other words we are merely surviving instead of thriving.
I hesitate to discuss the ego, but it must be known that in the harshness of the ego-filled mind there is evil. I mean that in the sense of living in a competitive world, where individuals would hold others down to gain status. There is a certain sense of evil in such selfishness where the most important commodity in one’s life is power. I mean not to say the son of self-love is running rampant, no, but I would have you be aware that the ego is not a toy, but something you will need to sharpen your spiritual skills to deal with it.
In your daily experience let people know they are valued simply for who they are, not what they look like, not for their money or various gifts, but simply show love for them as a brother or sister in the Kingdom. As technology becomes more important and impersonal, souls may go by the wayside and we lose touch with love, joy and a sense of belonging. For the next few weeks sharpen your social skills by making eye contact, offering greetings, making time for conversation. Avoid negativity and make effort to generate a healing spirit. I would like to offer some direction for ARMANDA.
My daughter, I am in understanding of the stress you are under. I see you as handling the issues with grace. I believe you are with great common sense and I have faith in your abilities to make logical decisions. I am in understanding of your confidence in yourself and people around you. You are like a piece of coal that is pressured into becoming a diamond. I would suggest that you make your decision and there from all pieces of the puzzle will fall into place. The fact that the decision has been made will in itself bring a great deal of peace. In the indecision there is the unknown and a lot of fear. I believe you have a great deal of the facts of your health dilemma and are fully capable of making intelligent decisions. Decisions like choosing a physician, treatment and methods on how to remain financially stable. I would suggest that you look within to see what your priorities are. What is really important? How are you going to face your fears with the skills you have learned over the past few years? I am thinking you should not have worry over various pains in the body because most are stress induced. I believe you should look at your situation with a scientific mind. It is true, all you have valued is being tested. It is not for any punishment, I can assure you. It is an incident of time and material. As human beings, we do what we can, we exhaust our resources. I want you to know I have faith in you and your ability to make logical decisions. Know that Father is close at hand and shows you openings in the pathway of decision-making. You are never alone. You are never without guidance. Know that we understand your dread and while we have compassion for you, we also will help uphold you. Is this helping? (Yes, thank you.) You are welcome. Is there another question?
ABRAHAM: I know this individual to be very knowledgeable and makes great effort in his methods for transmitting. Accuracy is important to him. I would simply say that apply all you have learned over these years to his words and lessons. What is true will stay. What is not will fade away. It is an exciting part of this technology of today to have communications with individuals around the world. Is this helping? (Yes, thank you very much). Are there any more questions?
ABRAHAM: It was just a day set aside for the Master and His apostles. I do believe Andrew arranged the schedule, at the Master’s request of course. It was draining on the minds of those Kingdom workers to work with the masses. It was constant outgoing of energy. There was regeneration of course in the Master’s lessons, but it became important to have rest and time to reflect on the past occurrences and to make some flexible plans for the days ahead.
MIRIAM: I appreciated the suggestion and bringing our attention to it. Yes, it is reiterated in the Jesus Papers … but I personally tend to miss the boat in that direct. Obviously it was important in the Masters living.
MIRIAM: Two people have asked in past week … one asked … she keeps seeing 11:11 … and they’re both saying this. Are there prompts like this going around?
ABRAHAM: I am understanding that numbers are important in the lives of mortals, but have not much to do with the work of the Kingdom. It has been the tendency of mortals down through the ages to put a mathematical equation to the unknown or matters of faith. There is a great deal of hype about the ending of the world and it is more about the Correction of it. In the re-encircuitment of the cosmic mind to Urantia, there are new senses that mortals will feel and the mind may see these senses in the realm of what they already know. So I would not downplay their experience, but enlarge it with suggestions of the work of higher mindedness. Good question.
As my connection grows weak, I will send you with my love and know that I have deep and abiding faith in each of you. You are indeed a source of joy for me. Mary sends her regards. She will attend next time. Go in peace. Shalom.
